Starting with their Sept. 27 publication, I will have a regular column in the Free Times, which is a major weekly indie paper here in Cleveland. They published a short teaser blurb about it here. The name of the column will be "Rainy Day Woman."
I have written for the Free Times many times in the past. Topics have included the local race track and masturbation and crossdressers.
What's not to love?
I am gleefully beside myself over this new permutation of my life. The column is scheduled to run every other week and will afford me regular print exposure all over Northeast Ohio. I intend to showcase my very best writing in it. All the columns will be online and worry not, I will copiously link them in these pages. Notably, Free Times editor Frank Lewis offered me the gig due in no small part to my work here at the Owner's Manual.
I knew I was effing around with this silly blog for a reason. This post, "Housewife," is one of Lewis's favorites.
And before any of you mother effers ask: No. I haven't heard from Mike Rowe yet, but I'm certain he'll be calling this Rainy Day Woman after next week's debut. Oddly enough, my Dearly Beloved doesn't seem the least bit concerned.
