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

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!

Next Up: The Hand Formed in the Shape of a Tiny Pistol

I love this: The stick is inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame.

Don't run with that, you'll poke your eye out!

I live in the Rochester area, where the Toy Hall of Fame is located.

In a local interview yesterday, the curator mentioned -- in all seriousness -- that an empty cardboard box might be the next inductee.

The museum is really great one for families but, yes, the stick seems like an odd addition.

Ooh! If they do a cardboard box, I hope it's a shoebox. Because that's the one that's the perfect size for both vrooming around on the rug and (when older) for dioramas.

They already inducted the cardboard box in 2005.
