Hey DC people!

Come check out the Shakespeare Theatre Company's Costume (and props) sale!

Sunday 1p-6p
Sidney Harman Hall
610 F St NW

Sure, there's lots of poofy sleeves and doublets and cosets, but we also do a lot of modern dress shows. The prices are great! (I think I might have a whole new Renn Fest outfit for $35).

Just in time for Halloween :-)

Artscape is this weekend!

The largest ourdoor art festival in North America ans it takes place in my back yard! Lots of vendors, music concerts (including Dionne Warwick, Robert Randolph, and CAKE), indoor theatre performances, dance shows, wild installation art, art cars, and no open container law!

All the festivites are FREE!

Any of you in the area, please come by! It's in the Bolton Hill neighborhood of Baltimore, so Chris and I will be having an unofficial open house Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Come soak up our air conditioning, use our bathroom (instead of the porta-johns), hang out on our deck, grab a cold beer, and then head back out to the festival on the next block.

It's the same weekend as Otakon, so all you who are down in the inner harbor cosplaying, grab the lightrail north to Mt Royal and come kick it with us!

About a year ago the Maryland Lotto filmed a commercial on our block. I totally forgot about it (Tivo allows me to avoid commercials entirely), and just today thought to look it up on YouTube. Our house can be seen at about 43 seconds (where the man is being wheeled out in a gurney).

I have decided, forthwith, to include a new question in my annual year-end meme (which I posted earlier this week).

What are your favorite books read in 2008?
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Johnathan Safran Foyer
The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
A Rumor of War by Philip Caputo

I only read 13 books this year, and, admittedly, a handful of those were manga. I'll try to do better in 2009. I'm always looking for suggestions!

Chris and I had been planning on honeymooning in southern Asia this February. A week in Vietnam, a week in Thailand, and maybe drop by Mumbai, India to visit our friends for a weekend.
However, due to the recent developments in Thailand and India, I'm starting to think we may want to re-consider our options.

So, I'm taking suggestions. Where do you think we should go? Think exotic, nice weather and somewhere that the dollar is relatively strong. We still like the prospect of Vietnam, so maybe something in that region (that has a protest-free airport). Bali? Singapore? Macau? Or something else entirely? Seychelles? Greece? Bora Bora? Argentina? Yucatan Peninsula? Cuba?

Maybe this Thai unrest will blow over and we'll go back to the original plan, but I'd like to buy some plane tickets soon...
