A swell trip to D.C. yesterday included a visit to Eastern Market, some fun shops around U & 14th Streets, a fabulous lunch at Teaism, and of course, the TAL show. I want to be like Sarah Vowell when I grow up. She's making a career out of smarty humor, delivered dead-pan. I also liked Chris Ware's illustrated story about two friends who love old buildings. When they look at Chicago, they see the buildings that are there and the buildings that used to be there. I know just what he means.
We laughed til we cried.
