I owe a million thanks to John for getting me tickets to David Sedaris. I've read a book of his a few years ago and read one or two of his articles in Esquire, but earlier this year I got a copy of his book on CD that he read and it was about a million times better than the printed word (which granted, is already pretty funny, but his delivery and timing is everything). It was the first time I've heard him live and I was crying with laughter at several points in the evening. There was a story about a morgue (to be a chapter in his next book), a story about halloween (to be in next week's Esquire), and a story about Santa. He's on a 30 city tour, and I hear he's going to be down in Stanford next week, so catch him if you can.
