My friend Bill, who’s a theater critic, called me at work yesterday with the offer of a free ticket to see “God of Carnage,” a new play on Broadway starring Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, James Gandolfini and Marcia Gay Harden. Naturally, I leaped at that! The play was terrific -- hilarious yet posing serious questions about human nature. There’s even a scene where Hope Davis vomits visibly on stage. What’s not to like?
You all know how much I like spam e-mail with interesting subject lines. Here are two I got this week:
-- Get your head effectively cleaned after last night
-- Become a wild cat for tonight! Scratch him to orgasm!
I guess these were supposed to sound good -- but you know, they just don’t.
