A pal of mine recently interviewed for a job as a detention monitor at an elementary school. He told me that at this school, the Detention Hall is called the “Responsible Thinking Room.” That has rather a chilling, Orwellian ring to it, no?
Another pal of mine, Elan Head, is surely one of the coolest chicks ever. She’s been to Afghanistan & Haiti & Micronesia & New Zealand, she’s a helicopter pilot, she can ride a motorcycle, & she can cook squab. In other words, she’s as close to a Bond girl as I’m likely to meet—she even has a Bond girl name.
Anyway, she’s finally knuckled under & started a blog; check it out here.
