Oh. Wednesday. Riiiighht.

I don't know if this is really going to qualify as a post, since it's going to be short and it's like 9 pm. I wouldn't really say I just squeaked in there with a post. But I'll do this one anyway so that someday I can look back and say I never missed a Wednesday or a Friday.

Working long days in the field is not always conducive to creating, it turns out.

Anyway, I finished Fooling Houdini, and found it to be the perfect antidote to the downer hour that reading time had become lately. I'm not going to say I won't go right back to wallowing in the depths of humanity for a while, but it was nice to get a bit of a break among the goofballs and whackadoos who make up the magician community.

There's a great clip with Alex Stone performing one of the tricks he develops while writing the book for one Daniel Handler, AKA Lemony Snicket. It won't let me embed the video, though, so go Google "Alex Stone, Daniel Handler." Then enjoy.
