I haven’t done one of these in a while, but here’s some stuff I’ve been enjoying lately:
I Miss You When I Blink, the new essay collection by Mary Laura Philpott, is really great.
I don’t know if you’ve been following the Hollywood fight between writers and their agents but Joel Stein has a funny piece about it.
On Sunday, MeTV is going to start showing The Dick Van Dyke Show again. I don’t know why it’s on at 11 p.m. and only Sunday nights, but I’m just happy to see it on TV again. It starts off with a five-week event where creator Carl Reiner picks his favorite episodes.
People are always asking me, “Hey Bob, what’s your favorite pen?” (note: nobody actually asks me this). My answer: the Uni-Ball Jetstream 1.0 (Black).
I’m addicted to Marie Callender’s Banana Cream Pie. No, seriously, I’m looking into joining one of those rehab facilities I see advertised on TV all the time. And I’m losing weight so I must be doing something right. (It’s the subject of my new book, The Banana Cream Pie Diet, coming soon.)
