My weekend was beyond parody. Saturday, Slim and I had bagels and lox and Barney Greengrass.  We walked around the reservoir and then on a whim went to the Natural History Museum, where I showed him all my childhood favorites, like the duckbill doll in the Hall of Asian Peoples, the giant clam, and the film in the Gold and Gemstones Hall.  When we got home, there was obviously nothing for it but to order in Chinese and watch Manhattan

Sunday? Shoah with Dan. Obviously.
