I’m pleased to announce that the taxpayers of Maryland are allowing the Spawn to earn a living, as she is now the U of MD’s newest graduate assistant. She’ll be helping out at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, at a satellite facility outside the main campus. In exchange, she’ll be getting her tuition comped, plus enough (we hope) to keep body and soul apart. We actually got the news last weekend, but the Spawn asked me to embargo it until the ink was dry and she was In The System. And now she is (and she starts on Monday), and she told me to “feel free to shout it from the rooftops.” Of course, I’m afraid of heights, so I think I’ll just blog instead.
Meanwhile, tonight is also a big night in Mondoville, as Bar Figaro hosts our little town’s inaugural Noir at the Bar, headlined by Lawrence Block, with a whole bunch of us serving as opening acts. The fun starts at 8, and should go until at least 10, so I hope to see you all there!
If you can’t make it, I’ll offer a full report in the next day or two. Meanwhile, here’s some music in honor of the Spawn’s new job site.
See you soon!
