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!

Is Hasbro in League with Wal*Mart?

In a game of Scrabble the other day, this came up naturally on my rack.  (Click to enlarge.  Sorry it's so fuzzy.)  I reacted with shock and awe:  "I so not, e-Scrabble!  I not at all!"

By the way, if anyone has a good play from this position, I'd love to hear it.  The best I managed, after finding no purchase anywhere, was HI/HAW for something like 14 points.  (I'm too disgusted to even count it.)  No doubt there's some vanishingly obscure 5-letter word that would have completely turned my fortunes.

get offline and finish writing, now.

(that's also an instruction to myself, of course)

Without simming or spending too long on it, I see HES (UH/AWEE/FRETS) for what I think is 34 points. BIIU is a revolting leave, but that's a lotta points to sacrifice.
