I got a little perspective over the past few days. Lesley and Paul invited me to a party today at Bob Franken’s house. And it just seemed so funny to me that when people asked what I’m doing over the weekend, I would say: I’m going to a party at Bob Franken’s house. I expected them to laugh. But every person (only three, really) said: Who’s Bob Franken? I know Bob’s not wildly famous or anything, but I did think people sort of knew who he was. So the humor in my hanging out at the house of a stodgy-seeming (although I actually think he’s quite nice, from my limited experience with him) newsman was lost.

I guess we all think everyone thinks just like we do.

I just finished reading Geek Love. I wanted my book club to read this last year, but it was roundly rejected. I wish I had someone to talk to about it. I enjoyed it a great deal. But it’s fairly complex and I’d love to have someone spin it all out with me now that I’m done. I know Rachel read it. Maybe I’ll hit her up when I see her over Thanksgiving. But it’s been a few years for her, so I can’t expect that much. It’s so funny that I can remember what book I saw in her hand three years ago.

Interesting development at work:
First, let me provide a chart illustrating who works for whom in this story:
CENSORED
And now I’m nervous, like one of them might see this. See, that’s why only Gelnn5 and Tsalino even know I do this.

SO I WENT BACK END EDITED THIS STORY OUT. IT JUST MADE ME TOO NERVOUS. BUT AT LEAST I’M ADMITTING I DID IT.

  1. Maybe after you and Rachel finish discussing GREEK LOVE at Thanksgiving, I can pry the censored story out of you.

  2. Oh, totally. I’m happy to tell it live. It’s a better story when you can hear the inflections anyway.
