I’m in Chicago for a conference, so we’re planning a meetup at:
400 N. State St.
I’ll probably get there between 6:30 and 7. Who else is coming?
Adam Sandler: “Yeah, that’s right. I collect antiquities. I’m a serious person. I’m writing a movie right now about the Russian revolution.”
Peralta: “Oh really, who does Kevin James play?”
Adam Sandler: “Ha, it’s a serious movie ... Trotsky. But he has a wife who never wears a bra.”
- Brooklyn 99
My book reviews
I’ll be there.
I wanted, I think, to acknowledge Luck: the chance of it, the benevolence of it in my life, and the brutality of it in the lives of others; made especially savage for children because they may not be allowed the good fortune of a lifetime to correct it. - Paul Newman, on why he created the Hole in the Wall Camp.
I won’t be able to make it, I’m afraid—I have my Beatles Ensemble that night. Sorry!
Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it. I waited until the last minute to respond, as I wanted to be sure I couldn’t reorganize my time. Hopefully next time will work.
“Alcohol makes you feel better and then makes you feel worse and then remorselessly very bad indeed, but then alcohol will make you feel better again. It is the cure for the dog that bit you, and how easily you forget it is also the dog.” - Roger Ebert
“Alcohol is necessary for a man so that now and then he can have a good opinion of himself, undisturbed by the facts.” - Finley Dunne
