The Week in Entertainment (part 2)

Live: Irving Berlin's White Christmas on stage at the Hippodrome. What an excellent show! They didn't have all the numbers from the movie (no "Choreography" or "Mandy") but there's no shortage of Irving Berlin songs to fill up any holes! A show-stopping tap dance to "I Love A Piano" opened the second act - wonderful dancing. This is a great show.

TV: A couple of episodes of Grimm - I cannot tell you how much I love that the captain is working with them. A fairly funny Middle and Modern Family and an extremely funny The Crazy Ones.

Read: It Happened in Wisconsin - (oops, didn't edit this properly!) a very good if oddball book about a barnstorming baseball team of socialists during the Great Depression, and how their politics affected their lives and loves. Poignant and moving. Gone Whalin', a very funny book about a college slacker who suddenly starts spending every other day on a whaling ship in 1867... One Hundred, Ten, and One, a great collection of science-fiction and fantasy micro-fiction and drabbles (and one slightly longer but still ultra-short).

Oops. My bad on the editing of the post. The whales are in New England. I think. The location of the college actually isn't given. It could be pretty much anywhere.
