I just received (in the mail) The 36 Hours/150 Weekends anthology book published by the New York Times and Taschen, and featuring two of my recently published travel pieces. Please go out and buy it but don’t drop it on your foot. It must weigh five or six pounds!!! In other news, I don’t have rabies. Also, I just wanted to know that my pecan pie turned out fine. However, my pumpkin pie was a gelatinous horror that sent people running from the table. Sorry for the bad food, everybody. There’s always next year. I also want to apologize for the small type. I bet you’re experiencing eye-strain right now. I tried to increase the font size but the button isn’t working.
