Well, I do hope to post those long-overdue entries, but I have some great guests coming: JAD + husband today, and the day they leave, my brother is coming for a couple days! Solo! My sister-in-law, who gets to stay behind with two wriggling boys, is a saint.
How geeky is it that I think this item from Sunday's New York Times is way cool?
"On Saturday and Sunday, the New Bedford Whaling Museum in New Bedford, Mass., will play host to its eighth annual marathon reading of Herman Melville's "Moby-Dick." The event begins at noon on Saturday with a reader costumed as Ishmael standing at the stern of an 89-foot ship model. It moves to the Seamen's Bethel (called the Whaleman's Chapel in the novel) for a singing of the Navy Hymn. It continues at the museum, mostly under hanging whale skeletons, but Chapter 40, "Midnight on the Forecastle," is read in the museum's life-size replica of a crew's living quarters."
