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!

I Didn't Know They Could Do That

Announcement on door of Jersey City Police's Internal Affairs building, Erie and 1st Street. Combine city pride with intradepartmental rivalry, add a phalanx of strict authoritarian personalities, and it's sure to be an evening of cataclysmically intense hypermasculinized dick-swinging. I'm getting exhausted just thinking about it.

In Jacksonville we actually have our FD battle our PD in a series of boxing matches that is referred to as . . . (wait for it) . . ."Guns 'N Hoses" :)

I don't know why, but I love that they're holding this at a Catholic High School. Wasn't there some old Bing Crosby film that had a nun teaching a young boy to fight?

Next up: The Protestants and the
Catholics duke it out over whether it's *really* the body and blood of Christ.

I might even pay to see that one.
