Ken,I guess the Becker fleece was one of those end of the year network presents? I'd love to hear a round-up of the best and worst you have given or recieved.I have several t-shirts, two sleeveless windbreakers, one very nice long beachtowel and a raincoat. But the cheapest I even got was a frisbee with the logo of the show on it. I was so pissed I took twenty.On my last show the producer didn't want to give everyone one of those hidious shirts or coats that always seem to disappear into a closet. So he and my writing partner conspired to buy a set of the hippest t-shirts they could find. A blue striped thing with the designer's name in silver all over the front. Never work with gay writers or producers.Ger A.And that's a joke, for those who missed the smiley face.

I visited Boston for the first time about a month an a half ago -- and promptly fell in love with it. When I die I don't want to go to heaven, I want to go to Cambridge in mid-June. I spent 2 1/2 wonderful days wandering about the city in a blissful stupor. I love the way Bostononians drive...because they don't. I was able to cross the street at will whenever I needed. VERY different from Texas.But I wasn't there 24 hours before the same question pounded in my head like a neon hotel sign pulsing on and off -- WTF is the deal with all the Dunkin' Donuts?!!


Funny stuff, but you clearly have not been to a Head of the Charles; the river is packed with thousands of people watching "eight big men and their tiny cox" row up it. Its about as exciting as watching the marathon on Com Ave; you just watch runner after runner go by without ever a clue who is going to or has won -- its just about being there.
