Ladies and people, my sister and I attended two parties together this evening.
The first was an Oscar party where there were lovely people, where we even filled out ballots and where I was tragically misinformed about many of the films up for...stuff. But Steve Martin made me collapse with laughter on several occasions, and that was worth enduring the rest of the fluff. And there were really great lamb burgers with poblano sauce. And there were raspberries.
The second was the long-awaited They Might Be Giants concert at Exit/In where they played the entire Flood record.....backwards. At first we were disappointed about the backwards part, but it grew on us. Many nerds were spotted, many laughs were had, many mad-scientist-lab lights flashed red and green, many seemingly meaningless (funny if you try to say that five times fast) lyrics were sung aloft, many bits of paper were shot out of guns and fluttered down like colorful, rectangular snowflakes.

A good night.
