I know I promised some sort of organizational tip today, but I’m in the middle of a very busy (crazy!) week and haven’t really had a chance to think about it. So that might be delayed until next week.
But I do have some updates and announcements and things pertaining to my writing world. I’m starting a new blog pertaining to sports. It’s going to focus more on my opinions and less on actual play-by-play. After all, everyone knows that I have plenty of opinions! I’m not sure what to call it yet, since the best title that I came up with is already taken. Maybe “Crazy Mandy Talks Sports?” I don’t know. Any suggestions?
I have a million other ideas and projects in the works, and a bunch of reviews to post on my Cleveland Restaurants Examiner site. Basically, just a TON of things and huge to-do list.
I’m sorry this post is so boring, but I just feel the need to blab about all of my deadlines to relieve some of the stress!
Posts coming soon to this blog:
- How I slowly became a football fan
- Tomorrow awesome beef stew (food post!)
- What I want for Christmas (but won’t get)
- My thoughts on eBooks VS real books
- A history of video games – my personal perspective
Things coming soon to the Examiner:
- Review of Angelo’s Diner
- Review of Tequila Pancho’s
- Review of Five Guys Burgers and Fries (first in a series of burger joints)
- Info on next week’s Winterfest on Public Square
Now, I need a break. I’ve been on my computer for five hours straight!
It’s been exactly a week that I’ve been full-time freelance, and I just completed my most productive day yet. I’m FINALLY organized, and have a nice list of assignments to complete. One of them involves something new that I’m working on for my Examiner column: something I’m tentatively calling “The Great Burger Experiment.” I’m going to eat at (almost) every local restaurant that specializes in hamburgers. My first was Five Guys Burgers and Fries, which I ate at last Friday. My review will be up in a few days.
Other than that, I decided to participate in National Novel Writing Month, which takes place in November. Rather than writing a novel, I’m breaking the rules a bit and hoping to finally get some work done on a non-fiction book that I’ve been pondering. The subject is Gettysburg, and that’s all I’m saying on that, until I manage to at least complete the outline!
I know I promised that I wouldn’t write any more about my kittens, so I’ll keep this short and quick: Osirus wound up getting stuck under the fridge yesterday. It took Josh and one of his friends to pull her out. Poor cat. She’s fine, but I was a bit shaken up.
‘Til next time…
It should come as no surprise that two of my favorite things to do are to eat and to express my opinions on things. I enjoy combining the two in my restaurant review columns for AltOhio.com and the Cleveland Examiner. Here is a link to my most recent review: Original Steak & Hoagies in Twinsburg.
I’m also working on reviews of:
- the food at Progressive Field (I was able to go on a Media Food Tour back in May
- Tequila Pancho’s in Boston Township
- Angelo’s Diner in Garfield Heights
- and Cafe’ Tandoor in Aurora
Links to them will be posted once I have a chance to write up my reviews. In the meantime, do any of you, my loyal readers, have any suggestions for local restaurants?
No, I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth – I’ve just been BUSY. There are plenty of updates to come, articles that need to be written, etc, so I will be posting links like crazy in the next few days. Be prepared!
In the meantime, here’s a review to keep you satisfied: Pad Thai Restaurant in Hudson, posted on AltOhio.com.
