Dateline Pittsburgh: 9 January 2017
Well well well I’ve had my fun from December 30th when I got my veterans pension to yesterday hanging out at Armand’s Bar in Little Italy and singing karaoke the first Sunday night of the new year at Sonny’s Tavern in Little Italy and now it’s time to get back to the serious business of being a professional blogger which for me means reporting on my favorite authors and commenting on things from the radio and giving you insights into the lifestyle of a professional blogger who is also a retired baby boomer and yes that’s what I do but that’s not all this blog is about for all you have to do is scan the sidebar to get a good idea of what this blog is all about…
First ten days of fun
Then twenty of focused work
The yin and the yang
Now that my ten days of fiesta are over I can get back to my library books (Bukowski, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Kerouac) but if I need more time I can always use the Automated Phone Renewal service if I need more time to finish the books which will give me something to do during the day because it looks more and more that I’m going to become a night blogger since I have to use the Wi-Fi in the lobby area which is right next to the office of the super and she runs two apartment buildings so she doesn’t need me listening to every word she says over the phone to her boss or to prospective renters whether it’s over the phone or face to face or to staff because she can always ban residents from using her Wi-Fi so the less she sees of me the better…
Dateline Pittsburgh: 10 January 2017
I’m back to reading Charles Bukowski’s short story collection South Of No North which he published in 1973 which means I’m back in his dirty, grim world of alcoholism and promiscuous sex and horse betting and seedy apartments and low-wage dead-end jobs and hemorrhoids…
Don’t want to be rich
I just want to be solvent
I’m the nigh blogger
Welcome to the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette which features the videos of Naked News. All photos of Genevieve Morton were sampled from Egotastic All Stars.
I’m slowly getting my Wi-Fi sea legs under me and eventually I will get Wi-Fi in my apartment where I can blog in my underwear and drink beer and oh yes it always comes down to beer because beer has sustained me through war and years of rejection notices and my own run of working minimum-wage dead-end jobs for far too many years and even though I do not like Bukowski’s fictional world I definitely recognize it and I admire the man’s writing talent.
Hail to Pitt!
