J.G.'s computer is sick and in the shop, and she asked me to take over blogging duties tonight even though I'm a little short on bloggable material at the moment. (Is bloggable even a word?) Doubt that any members of our Hotch Pot audience would be interested, but I am working on a story about baseball players who bat right but throw left. Apparently, these types of players are extremely rare, far fewer in number than their opposites, players who bat left but throw right. Not sure exactly why that is, other than there are fewer natural throwing lefties to start with. I'm open to other theories if you have one.
Other than that....I finished Nabokov (what a descriptive writer) and moved on to Stanley Elkin. I'm still on the short stories kick as I try to make it through spring training. Just 40 more days to go.
