Stupid smart

Yesterday at residency, two men with giant brains gave lectures on plotting -- Tim Wynne-Jones, author of the brazilliant Rex Zero series, and Tobin / M.T. Anderson, 2006 National Book Award winner for The Astonishing LIfe of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume One: The Pox Party. They can write. They can teach. And they sure know how to sell a stuffed cow.

Some generous students and alumni put a lot of money towards VC's scholarship fund last night. Folks stayed late into the night even though we're all stupid tired.

And as long as we're using stupid as an adjective, it's stupid gorgeous outside right now. My roomie Jess and I are putting off going inside.
