I found out this weekend that Rent ended its 12-year Broadway run on Sunday. I kept meaning to go see it, but I never got around to it. This makes me sad.

Another thing that closed this weekend was the Astroland amusement park at Coney Island. Luckily, I managed to get a piece of that action on Labor Day. Mariah, Rachel and I trekked down to the southern border of Brooklyn to bask in the wonder of carnies (Rachel won two goldfish!), Shoot the Freak, Nathan's hot dogs, the beach, and an 81-year-old roller coaster. It was everything I hoped it would be.

Oh, and thanks to all the people (including my anonymous book fairies) who recommended stuff for me to read. I went to Barnes and Noble and wandered around for the better part of an hour, reading the backs of a lot of those books and others that looked interesting, and got entirely overwhelmed. I decided it would be prudent for me to look into a library card, so until I get around to that, I fell back on an old favorite. Any additional recs are still appreciated - now that I'm out of school and actually have time for leisure reading, it gives me great satisfaction to add to my list.


  1. Ooh, I was just coming to ask if the "old favorite" was something by SKP. Jackpot! Always nice. I just finished reading "To Dance With Kings" by Rosalind Laker and it was pretty good. And also, in unrelated news, did you know that Michael Phelps is hosting SNL this weekend? And that he was on Oprah and the Tonight Show last night. Sweet.

  2. Heh, yeah, I was in B&N getting overwhelmed by all these choices and then I saw Here Be Dragons, and I realized I don't even have my own copy! So that was my fall back. And yes, I DID know that he was going to host SNL, which is yet another reason I have been keeping my eyes peeled (ew). Although that reminds me of another post I was going to make... brb.
