Whenever I don’t have time to post more than a lame-ass entry (like, well, now, when I have to leave for the airport in twenty minutes) there’s always Flickr, which has pictures up from recent Big Deal Things In My Life such as The Walk and The Book Party. (And there’s going to be another party, and if you’re in NYC, email me, because I think you can still RSVP.)
And you (well, the New York area you) really need to come see Jami Attenberg read tonight at the New York Public Library. And you (the Chicago area you) need to see her read on June 22nd at the Hideout. And then buy her book. (All of you everywhere.)
Now I have to run, but in the meantime, maybe you all can debate the gaucho. Offensive or not? Those skirty knit ones are sort of cute, but at what point do they get horrifying? And is it the same point at which they become knickers? I mean, are gauchos a gateway garment to something worse? Discuss!
