1. I’m in New York right now for a very very short visit, which will be interrupted by an even shorter side trip to Boston to read at the Great Scott with Jami and Janice. Come see us! (And I’ll be back in NYC next month to see people I haven’t gotten a chance to see this time, which is pretty much everyone.)
2. The winner of the spelling bee I judged Friday night at the Book Cellar was someone who reads this blog, a woman named Rachel with a beautiful buttery leather jacket. I would have let her win on this alone but she won fair and square. I would tell you the winning word but then I would have to spell it.
3. Last night we were in a cab and the cabbie showed us a backpack that a stripper left in his cab and inside were the most amazing shoes ever. There are pictures. You’ll see them soon. Update! Photos here.
