I have great friends, and New York has great theatre

Some of Shelley's designs are going to be featured in Country Living Magazine. Congratulations Shelley! I think it will even be the cards that Shelley and Marisa made together, so congratulations to both of my friends. I have always had great faith in Shelley's ability to conquer the world of stationery, but it's nice to see faith give way bit by bit to empirical proof.

Also, I went to see Avenue Q the other day. It's a grown-up, dystopic, kind of rude and obscene spoof on Sesame Street - the characters are muppets grappling with early-adulthood issues of dreams vs. reality, purpose, responsibility. I didn't leave thinking or feeling anything I hadn't thought or felt before, but it's a Broadway musical that really eloquently captures a particular kind of disillusionment. Plus, there are some great songs - like "The Internet is for Porn" or "Everyone's A Little Bit Racist" or "Schadenfreude." Any musical with a song called "Schadenfreude" gets a thumbs up from me.
