We had a great Wait-Wait taping in New Haven last night. Mo Rocca and Kyrie O'Connor were the other panelists with Peter Sagal once again mastering ceremonies. The Not My Job guest was Isaac Mizrahi
, the fashion designer. He was very funny and charming and we had about as much in common as a table leg and the smell of cider. New Haven is only two hours and some change from here so I was able to drive to this one. It's nice not having to fly. If I lived in a smaller country I think sometimes I would never fly again. It's not that I'm afraid of it. I'm just sick of it. The Transportation Safety people have wrung every last remaining piece of fun out of the experience. Kyrie and I were talking this morning as I drove her to the airport and she observed that the safety measures don't seem designed to protect us so much as they do to humiliate and pacify us. Necessary I suppose, but it feels like that.
On the opposite end of flying, my amazing wife is running a relay race across New Hampshire today and tonight. It's some many hundreds of miles long with twelve women on her team taking shifts around the clock. The boys and I will head to Hampton Beach, NH tomorrow to pick her up. This is just a training run for her. The main event will be her third running of the New York City Marathon in November. She's nuts. No question. But in the very best kind of way.
