Here’s what I did last night when I got home from work while Bridgette was gone:

I ate two microwavable burritos and watched some TV.

I graded a pile of history tests on the Mongol expansion and feudal Europe.

I had my quiet time and read.

Do you see how open I am being? I am noticeably unlike Hillary Clinton in this way. I will share any details you might like to hear. This is why people start blogs, after all – because they are under the impression that other people give a crap about them.

Also, I talked on the phone.

In the interest of generating greater access to my world, I am now offering readers of the JLP a new live-blogging feature. Mine is probably unlike other liveblogs you might be familiar with – here’s how it will work:

You will meet me for brunch at Perkins (preferably the fancy Perkins in Edina). You will purchase my meal. In exchange, I will monologue about topics that interest or amuse me. After 30 minutes, we will leave and you will return me to my workplace.

If you’re interested in pursuing this option today, my topic of choice is mechanical pencils. Trust me – I could go on all day on this particular theme. Just ask my wife.

    Thom, I think I’ve basically described a typical Rock TV editing session, haven’t I?

    More or less, that is exactly how it goes.

    Including the mechanical pencils? Keen…

    When Peter gets on a riff about mechanical pencils? Editing is pretty much over as we all just sit at Peter’s feet in fervent awe.
