Ratted Out

Sorry to have been off the air yesterday; a busy afternoon led to an evening at the theater (we saw a spellbinding production of Macbeth, starring Patrick Stewart, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music). By the time we got home a post was simply not in the cards.

I shall have to make a similar apology for today as well: I was up at the crack of dawn to spend the entire day traipsing around Chinatown as part of the annual Yee’s Hung Ga Kung Fu Association lion dance and parade. These Lunar New Year extravaganzas are always exhausting — I’ve been doing it for 32 years now, and it doesn’t get any easier as the knees and back get older — so once again I’m too pooped to post. I have more to say about Lycan’s paper, but it will have to wait.

    Macbeth *and* Patrick Stewart? At the same time, even? Lucky bastard.

    You probably can’t see it from halfway across the world, but I am green (and not the “yay, let’s extinct ourselves to save the planet!” type of green).

    And green you should be, Charles. Fourth-row seats.

    So move to New York!

    Somebody ratted you out, I assume! (Sorry, but it’s past my bed-time.)
