Que Sera Sera

Plugging 2: Still Plugging

Are you aware that the second Plug anthology is available for purchase? I got my copy yesterday and spent a happy 45 minutes eating chips and dip and reliving Jay Carlson’s funniest bits of genius circa 2003. I think this one is actually funnier than the first one. There were several things I’d forgotten that made me laugh out loud (most of all Here’s Something!). Jay is one of those rare people who is so stuffed with ideas that they must trickle out at a steady rate just to keep his head afloat, and I bet if you had to take the trash out with Jay, he’d be like, Wait, I know, let’s do it like this, and afterwards you’d have this great story to tell at bars.

This would make a great gift for siblings, or friends, or cool cousins, or maybe someone who you really like so far but you’ve only been dating for like a month or so and it’s almost their birthday. DO NOT FREAK THAT PERSON OUT AND BUY THEM A NECKLACE. Buy them this book instead. You can thank me at your wedding.

Book signing, Cringe Wednesday

Cringe is this Wednesday, May 7, at 8:30 pm. Before Cringe, there will be a book signing for the Dooce fatherhood anthology at Soda Bar, from 5:30 – 7:30. I will be there with Heather Armstrong, Alice Bradley, Greg Allen and Doug French. I will be the one signing books as John Grisham and V.C. Andrews.

Soda is just a five minute walk from Freddy’s, so I hope people can make it to both events. I personally hope I can make it to Freddy’s in time to save myself a seat for my own reading.

What I Think About on the Subway

I wish I had a button on my keychain that I could push whenever the world is a bit too much with me, and I would immediately be dropped slow-motion into a warm swimming pool while the first bars of “Crimson and Clover” played all around me.
