It’s that time of year again.
March Madness! Opening day for MLB! No, the really important thing that happens this time each year for the last few year? The Washington Post’s Peeps diorama contest. Check out this year’s finalists, taking a close look at my faves, “Peeps and Prejudice and Zombies” and “Where the Wild Peeps Are”. Other book-themed Peep tableux include Alice in Wonderland, Goodnight Moon, and Madeleine. There are also a lot of film scenes, current events and pop culture references, if you’re interested.
On a happy note, my copy of Arianna Franklin’s A Murderous Procession has arrived. And at just the right time. Although I still haven’t finished Generation Kill, my fiction slump has broken, I think, courtesy of Patricia Briggs’ Silver Borne, which was very good, if a little schmoopy and slightly lavendar in the very end.
Unrelated: why is the TV coverage of Miami’s tennis tournament ending with the women’s match tonight? The Tsonga/Nadal match isn’t being aired anyplace that I can find locally. Must find a live stream.
