    the xbi and my mother have one thing in common 

    guerrilla garden on sunset

    their love for me.

    the other thing they have in common is they get nervous when i miss a day of blogging.

    they know i love blogging more than anything

    and fear if i miss a day its because of something tragic

    or unbloggable.

    its so sweet.

    and yes yesterday i did something unbloggable.

    and today i may do it again.

    today is sunday, the day of rest. and i cant rest.

    i woke up at 6am. i watched the Kings Speech, then i watched Kareem’s

    “On the Shoulders of Giants” which is fantastic, despite what i expected.

    when Kareem blogged briefly for the Times i had his book of the same name on my desk

    and i was thinking about asking him to sign it

    but you wanna be professional, which usually means not doing something.

    i have enough autographs, i said to myself.

    big mistake.
