Friday Happy Hour: Book Tour Edition

morristowncommunitytheater.jpgLast night, for her birthday, I took my Mom to see David Sedaris at the Mayo Center for Performing Arts in Morristown, NJ. Her birthday is not until December 25th, but David Sedaris is not appearing that day.

Mr. Sedaris put on a great show, reading us an upcoming New Yorker piece, selected entries from his diary, and excerpts from his next book (scheduled for June 2008). If the Sedaris Tour Bus pulls into your town, I recommend you try to see him.

But what do I know? I've only been to a handful of events like this. Today's topic in the Friday Happy Hour series is book readings. Who have you seen? Who impressed you? Who wasted your time?

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
