Another Perk of Being An Nr Cruiser…

…is that we come to your houses to stay, eat your food, and impose on your hospitality! Well, I’m not sure how much of a perk it actually is, but I will be staying at famed (notorious?) NR cruiser “Dr. John’s” place tonight in Palm Springs (book talk tomorrow at the Pepper Tree Book Store and Cafe in Palm Springs at 3 p.m.). John has a wit as dry as the Sahara and as sharp as one of his surgicial instruments. Anyway, coming on a cruise is a great way to get hooked into the NR family. (I think I should get some sort of credit for two commerical announcements so far in this post. Have I mentioned that I will be reading myself to sleep with an NR children’s book?)
