Thanks to everyone who hung out with me at the ballpark this weekend. It was a really nice way to spend any weekend, let alone my birthday. And Sunday's game made up for Saturday's: first time Ellis has been thown out of a game.

The present I gave to myself is the new Jackson MacLow, Thing of Beauty, a new & selected edited by his wife Anne Tardos. The cumulative effect of reading so many selections from his long list of projects is not only to see how consistently innovative he was as a writer, but also how good. This coupled with Doings does a good job of representing his many approaches to writing.
