day for night. DON'T ARGUE.

Tomorrow: Tuesday March 24th:
Heather Armstrong of www.dooce.com is reading.
I love her blog: writing, photography, lapsed mormonism. Good stuff. She makes a living off of blogging - and - apparently - putting together a book whose pages I will pick up and graze/gaze on.She's at Barnes and Noblez. The one in Chelsea. It's free. And it's at 7pm.

Do you want to see Alyssa Milano on Wednesday? Want a signed copy of a book she "wrote?" Then google it yourself,cause I'm not posting it here.

asides:
Tragic news from the social-climbing- digging-itself-out-of-the-black-hole twitter:

-LANCE HURT HIMSELF.
-MY FRIEND BRIAN IS SITTING NEXT TO A HOTTIE IN CLASS.
-CHRISTOPHER WALKEN DOESN'T THINK ANDY DICK IS FUNNY.
-JESS IS STRESSED
-and. sadly- jimmy fallon reflects on meeting morrisey. I say sadly...because..I could not afford the 65 dollar tickets to see him sweat and croon. Morrissey is not recession proof. Love you Moz.

Brief Review:
Remember how I posted on Muldoon & his band "Rackett" playing at Bowery Poetry Club? I went. It was too expensive. There was another band called menage-et-twang (I think) and they sang about some funny stuff. Rackett-wise, Muldoon looked a little awkward on the stage. The lead singer had a Broadway voice (not a terrible thing but I'm used to growling). It wasn't really my thing, but it wasn't bad. There was a burlesque show afterward, but I didn't feel like paying 15 bucks just to stay where I was. AND they monopolized the bathroom- so I went into the mens and had someone refuse men entry while I was pissing out all that damn Bass Ale.

BWOCK.
