The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

Location: New York, New York, United States

I'm a storyteller in the New York area who is a regular on NPR's "This American Life" and at shows around the city. Moved to New York in 2006 and am working on selling a memoir of my years as a greeting card writer, and (as a personal, noncommercial obsession) a nonfiction book called "How to Love God Without Being a Jerk." My agent is Adam Chromy at Artists and Artisans. If you came here after hearing about my book on "This American Life" and Googling my name, the "How to Love God" book itself isn't in print yet, and may not even see print in its current form (I'm focusing on humorous memoir), but here's a sample I've posted in case you're curious anyway: Sample How To Love God Introduction, Pt. 1 of 3. Or just look through the archives for September 18, 2007.) The book you should be expecting is the greeting card book, about which more information is pending. Keep checking back!

Weather Report

It's snowing outside my window now. And I mean thickly---this is Christmas-music-video snow. Has someone contacted Punxsutawney Phil? Because when your job is to predict six more weeks of winter and you wind up giving us more than nine, if it's not senility it may be criminal derangement. Time to give the job to a new groundhog who respects the rule of law.

I have a Mac version… :) You can practice on my laptop if you need.

I’ll ask around, though, just in case.

Okay, that comment was intended for the Excel posting. Ooops. I don’t have a copy of iGroundhog or anything like that.

On the topic of weather in New York, however, I can mention that when I moved here in March 2001, I figured I had missed winter and could enjoy overall increasing temperatures and such… Then the City got hit by a terrible snowstorm, which even resulted in closing the Museum.

That said, snow in April? A tad unusual.

Actually, when I saw the snow (which is entirely gone now as if it were a midday hallucination), my first actual thought was, "Hey---it's just like that Prince song, 'Sometimes it Snows in April,' from the Graffiti Bridge soundtrack!" But I had nowhere to go with this observation, so I left it off the main post. Thanks for giving me an excuse to add this.
