Adam's Beanstalk

A daily adventure-bag of insights and old bones from an unknown poet in Manitoba's south. Caveat: Not everything is to be taken literally. Things are often shaded with poetic crayons; be the owl. Also, not all these bones are collected from different fields. Find themes that run througout each post and the journal as a whole; the most insignificant event may be part of an ear.

It's time for a summer holiblogiday!

Hello all! I have an announcement to make: It's time for a summer holiblogiday! This may not be exciting to you (despite the exclamation mark). It means that I will be officially "not blogging" until the summer ends. This does not mean that I will cease to be sociable. Rather, if you want an update of my e-life, you can find me on Facebook, which I have been enjoying lately. It is there where I will post any summer pics and you can feel free to inquire about my day to day life.

Summer until now has been composed of...
a)grading Philosophy papers for a summer intro course
b)editing papers for any university students - I have done 2-3 a week
c)a Rose-Town fantasy baseball pool, where I currently sit in 2nd place (out of 15). I was in first for about three weeks after a remarkable surge from 12th.
d)practicing music for busking at the Forks. I got my license on May 28.
e)a bit of writing
f)reading Coutzee's "Waiting for the Barbarians"
g)playing Monopoly or poker or Killer Bunnies once a week
h)playing soccer with all the best players in town once a week. I have found my home as a goalie. It's quite enjoyable, and I feel I can contribute to the team.
i)playing two homemade games: battle ping-pong & a ball-on-the-roof game with Shane
j)playing home raquetball with Jimi
h)going to a ton of job interviews, and being frequently disappointed. Finally, last week I got some offers, and I start work at Nerman's Books and Antiques on Thursday. I'm really excited, as this should be a very enjoyable summer job. My prayers have been answered.

Cheers! Have a good summer.
