Back Home

Got back from LA yesterday evening.

I had a great visit out there... well, aside from losing the Emmy (I am now 0-4 all time), but it IS an honor just to nominated, yadda yadda yadda. Some amazing meetings followed, with some amazing people, most of which I can't tell you about... yet. But maybe one day.

And it's always nice to be back in Santa Fe, with Parris, the cats, and the minions. And to escape the LA heat as well.

But the amount of crap that has piled up in my absence is daunting. There's just too damn much. Even with three assistants, I am falling further and further behind, and more and more stuff keeps getting dumped on my plate. Somehow just walking back into my office after a trip sends my stress level ratcheting up to ten. Or maybe to a hundred, depending on your scale.


There is no help for it, I suppose. Price of success, and all that. And I know, lots and lots of folks would love to have my problems. No one needs to tell me that.

Even so...

(Today's football games did not much help my mood either. Life is meaningingless and full of pain...)

If the Jets are getting blown out again next week I expect that Tebow will be under center for most of the second half. The Jets are a truly horrible team. (I'm hoping they make me eat my words) To my prejudiced eye they are the perfect reflection of the owner.

Osi, Osi, Osi... The Giants weren't sharp. They should have stuck with Brown as the RB. No one in the League is tougher than Ahmad nor runs harder, but Brown is the better back for the Giants. On that interception, either Eli misread the D or somebody blew the coverage and got lucky. That play and subsequent lack of defensive cohesiveness that we saw last season sealed the deal. Losing Phillips for the next game or three could be the straw although the replacement Brown (the other one) seemed to have gotten his sea legs by games end. How many injuries can this team weather?

As for the agita, it's beginning to sound like you do not want to prioritize your tasks. Sometimes you have to do some drastic pruning. Be honest with yourself and be firm with others. To sum up: Do less, accomplish more.

Maybe one of your assistants can have a button made with the slogan, "Just said No."
