Working on January No Tell galleys while listening to a neat mix CD I received in the mail from Laura. Toto, "Hey Jude" in Czech, Radiohead . . . thanks Laura!

Another Laura wrote to me today and said that I probably think Richard Wilbur's poems are "effete and sterile." I had to admit I don't have a single opinion about Richard Wilbur. I know I've read some of his poems in anthologies, but I've never done any in-depth reading of his work and well, basically I'm blank. The funny thing is that I have no desire to run out and prove her right or wrong. I'm damn tired lately. One more thing for my 2005 To Do List.

I'm waiting for a telephone update on my grandmother who last I heard was having surgery tonight (or perhaps tomorrow). Not sure if there will be a last minute trip to Pittsburgh. It seems like a lot of people in my family are suddenly having medical problems. So many that I'm having a diffcult time remembering who to inquire about after what test or doctor visit.

I'm glad you got it OK!

Hey Jude is the worst of all Beatles songs.

Maybe it's better in Czech.
