Today is my birthday! I don’t have any grand plans for celebration, except that on my birthday I allow myself to eat whatever I damn well please and not feel guilty about it. Mmm, donuts.
Also today, Mad Scientist Week continues at the Book View Cafe blog with an original short-short story from me: “One Night in O’Shaughnessy’s Bar.”
I also want to take this opportunity to mention that last night I saw one of the best plays I’ve seen in some years: Red Herring at Artists Rep. It’s a noir detective story. It’s a romantic comedy that’s laugh-out-loud funny. It’s a keenly-observed commentary on the importance and meaning of marriage. It’s a noir farce, of all things. Six excellent actors play a variety of parts, with great skill and verve, on a set whose apparent simplicity belies its sophistication. See it!
