Welcome to the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette on a day when The ‘Burgh will get more clouds than sunshine for the next few days and today there is the possibility of rain off and on all day long with a high of only 67. Yuck!
I am still determined to get in my usual walk or two down to Schenley Plaza and the Pitt campus.
Whether or not I get in my usual walk to Schenley Plaza and the Pitt campus I have plenty to keep me busy if I stay in my shabby but comfortable apartment.
For one thing I checked out The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway and Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson from the public library yesterday. I’ve read both books several times over the years and now I’m going to read both again. I learn something new about writing fiction every time I read a novel or a collection of stories even if I’ve read the book before. I’m also re-reading Good Pussy Bad Pussy by Amy Aimee who is a regular contributor to my little girlie magazine.
And I have to get ready for tomorrow. What’s special about tomorrow? I should be back on my regular beat in Little Italy tomorrow; which means today I have to do things like make up a shopping list for food and apartment supplies and make out my budget for October and pay bills and balance my check book…You know, boring but necessary stuff like that.
The reward is a couple of beers at Armand’s tomorrow and karaoke at Sonny’s Tavern Sunday night.
Hail to Pitt!
