And in other crappy news, I spent the past few days being blind, having developed some weird infection in my right eye (and when I say "weird" I mean WEIRD: The doctor in the emergency room said he sees this like once every five years, and then pulled my Mom over to give her a look -- and it's NEVER a good sign when an e.r. doc says "Oh, wow ... you've gotta see THIS!")
But the good news is in this week's Pittsburgh City Paper: Bill Shannon ( aka "Crutchmaster" -- http://www.whatiswhat.com/whatiswhat.htm ) is going to be in town and performing at the Three Rivers Arts Festival this weekend! Here's the schedule:
So anyone who wants to join me, I am absolutely game. It looks like he's doing a twenty minute piece a couple of times a day over the course of the weekend -- good times. We'll see if I get to see him and whether on not he remembers me from our days at Falk School, our days as high school vagabonds, or those fateful Wicker Park days.
