What’s going on

Annie Reid normally steps in around here on Fridays, but she’s doing some filming in Austin at the moment.

It’s 1:40 a.m. I’m way behind on email and still kind of bleary-eyed. And I’ve spent the evening at a local bar, ranting about regressive tax policy and the possible demise of social security, with a very patient friend and some elderly Brooklyn residents.

Wave methol cigarettes were on hand, and I, unfortunately, smoked several.

I’ll try to post a few things, hangover permitting, but in the meantime you’ll want to see what some book bloggers are up to these days.
