Scott Hardie | December 16, 2001
I'm leaving around 2pm Sunday for Florida, driving the whole way, arriving late Monday night. I have actually come to enjoy that drive. One, it's an excuse to pig out on fast food for two days. Two, I don't know why, but I love the seedy Scottish Inns in Tennessee. I try to stop in the Manchester one every trip. $20.95 a stay, and their front desk is open twenty-four hours. Three, I get to listen to my CD collection, really listen to it instead of just playing it while I do something else. Four, I get to see my mom at the end of one trip, and Kelly at the end of the other. I can't wait.

There's No Place Like Home

Kelly and I returned from our honeymoon last night, and it's such a relief to be home. The first three things that Kelly did upon entering the house pretty much sum up our priorities: 1) Turn on the air conditioning. (We live in Florida after all.) Go »

The Psychopathology of Ferris Bueller

Reading one critic's jeering of Ferris Bueller's Day Off on the occasion of its 25th anniversary re-release -- I'm glad to know I'm not the only person on Earth who doesn't adore it -- got me thinking about Jon Ronson's The Psychopath Test, a recent book Go »
