Tonight my friend Chris and I went to see the fabulous David Sedaris at the Riverside Municipal Auditorium. Chris had no idea who he was, and her taste tends to run towards the Redneck Comedy Jam, but I think she enjoyed the show as much as I did. Sedaris read one of my favorite sections from "Me Talk Pretty One Day" - the story of how he and other french language students in Paris try to explain Easter to a Muslim woman in broken, poorly translated french.

Before the show we went to the historic Mission Inn in Downtown Riverside for a coupla tasty margaritas. The Inn is spectacular, by the way, for anyone looking for an oasis in the inland empire . . . .

Oh and I'm so glad you weren't beaten or robbed while in Riverside. Oh yeah! I'm proud of the IE!

My favourite Sedaris story is "Next Of Kin" from Naked. Where they find the poorly written porno and everyone in the family reads it. I'm glad you enjoyed his reading!

Sounds like the perfect evening out. Margaritas and unadulturated hilarity!

I can't wait to see him tomorrow in Santa Barbara!

Somehow, I have never read an entire Sedaris book. I keep meaning to. Maybe I'll pick one up for my flight.
