Phony Bennett

I was catching up on my TiVo last night, so I turned on SNL really late. But not too late to catch the Tony Bennett sketch, which was the funniest thing that I've seen on SNL in a loooooong time. It was like Debbie Downer funny. Belly laugh funny. I'm so glad that I caught it.

So let me tell you about these awesome books I'm reading/have read lately:

The Wind-up Bird Chronicle - Haruki Murakami
I have no idea what the hell is going on about 200 pages in, but I don't care. I love it.

The Book of Lost Things - John Connolly
Oh, I loved this book. I could have done without the ball peen hammering that was the last chapter on the Crooked Man, but I still loved it.

Marie Antoinette: The Journey - Antonia Fraser
This is Gabi's fault. We saw and loved the movie so now we must read the book.

Side note: Overuse of word "love?" Check.

The Memory Keeper's Daughter - Kim Edwards
I read it for book club. It was sad.

Elements of Style - Wendy Wasserstein
I love the rug being pulled out from under me. This a wicked send-up, and I'm sorry that the world is minus one Wendy Wasserstein.

Look at the SIZE of that tooth! It's like he stuck a chiclet back there. He's getting the twin now, so he's of super pleasant disposition this morning. Poor guy. At least he didn't leave his heart in Sam Clam's Disco.

Are you reading Marie Antoinette right now? Can you wait for me to get a copy so we can read it together?

And by the way, that is one adorable grin on that kid!
