March 02, 2014


I'm leaving Miami for New York City today because (a) I am sick and tired of all this pleasant warm weather, and (b) I'm starting a book tour to promote my new collection of essays, You Can Date Boys When You're Forty, which is -- and I say this in all modesty -- the most recent book I have ever written.

Tuesday night at 7 I'll be at the Barnes and Noble at 82nd and Broadway, and on Wednesday night at 7 I'll be at the Barnes and Noble in Paramus, New Jersey.

On Thursday, March 6, I'll be in Washington, D.C., where at 1 p.m. I'll do an event at the National Press Club, and at 7 p.m. I'll be at Politics and Prose, whose website says, quote, "Beer and wine will be available." I think we can all agree that at that point we will need it.

On Friday I'll be in Atlanta for two events: at 12:30 p.m. at the Barnes and Noble in Buckhead, and at 7 p.m. at the Carter Library.

On Saturday at 1 p.m. I'll be at the Costco at 17800 Congress Avenue in Boca Raton, where you can purchase my book as well as boxes of Milk Duds the size of a two-car garage. Saturday evening at 8 p.m. I'll do an event for my hometown bookstore, Books and Books, at the Coral Gables Congregational Church.

On Sunday I'll be home lying in bed whimpering and praying for clean underwear. Then on Monday, March 10, I'll be heading for Denver to begin the western leg of my book tour. You can find the rest of the appearance schedule here.

I won't be doing a lot of blogging for the next few weeks, but Judi has promised that she will try to do some if she's not too busy with her many other duties.

I hope to see some of you out on the road.

Will Sophie help with your laundry on Sunday, or will she be out on a date?

I think her date will be doing the laundry....

And yet, still no Mpls strumpdate!!!!

Have a safe trip, Dave. I'll have to wait for the western tour schedule...

Tea and strumpets for all!

Dave, as a dyed in the wool (whatever that means, but bring lots of wool to New York - it is freaking cold!) New Yorker I can assure you I will be there to support you with several other bloglits at the signing...Saturday in Coral Gables. (Don't ask.)

Of course, if we need to replenish the Mild Duds (tm) you may see us in Boca first.

Also Milk Duds.

IF I can dig out of yet ANOTHER snow, I will be there!

Let me add that Dave's timing is impeccable as always - or perhaps in this case, peccable.

wish i could. have a great tour. and bring your longjohns. i hope cspan covers one of your sessions for Book TV. they've shown up at politics and prose.
i'll buy your book anyway.

Too cold for you in Minneapolis, eh ? The Dali Lama was just here. He's not afraid of a little arctic hell.

I saw Dave in Atlanta last year and had a wonderful time. If you can, by all means go see him.

No trip to the Siskiyous ? only 4-5 hours north of Petaluma.

Our birthday is the 15th, so you have plenty of time to fly to New Zealand, where the Hobbits flow like beer.

You may want those Mild Duds after you go to Denver. Rumor has it something that gives you the munchies is legal there.

Have a good book tour Dave. I wish I could read where you were stopping in Michigan. I have preordered your book and will look forward to reading it. As always thanks for all of the humor.

Don't forget to pack your blue shirt this time, Dave!

(And why are you adverse to speaking in Southern California? Some of us are reasonably proficient English speakers)

Like, TOTALLY what Pirateboy said....for sure.

*raises hand* I, too, am a SoCalifian who reads and would welcome Dave and his entourage with open arms beer.

It is now snowing HORIZONTALLY!

25° with 3" of snow and howling winds here in Falls Church VA, so we're ready for Dave to visit!

Looks like Dave is bringing better - or at least less snowy - weather to NYC. Thanks, Dave! I hope you packed your long johns.

Got the book this weekend, loving it (of course, duh). Sure wish Dave could squeeze Columbia SC into his busy schedule.

Dave, just to let you know that you have a serious fan base in India, too. And, India's much warmer and a lot less snowy than where you're headed. You should plan a trip here some time. By the way, I've pre-ordered the Kindle version and eagerly waiting for tomorrow when it's released.

Not stopping by Austin? As long as you pledge allegiance to the Alamo and wear a 'Death to the U.N.' T-shirt you'll be fine.

Last hour it was snowing horizontally from right to left now it is left to right!

I'm at the farm, alone. It's snowing, again. High in the low 20s. Can't even get the 1/3 mile to the road to get the paper.
I'd love for Dave to come somewhere I could go see him.
Uh oh. There's a flaw in this plan.

Steve,wiredog, and anyone else stuck in the 1,0000 snow storm this year,

I think we need to write a strongly worded letter to whomever is in charge of this snow.

WE want to see Dave!

Good luck Dave. Bad timing on your part. Never plan a book tour in the Northeast until August. My sister and brother-in-law spent a month with me in Tampa Bay and just left yesterday to drive home to Cape Cod. Talk about bad timing.

Definitely bring your mukluks.

Ab Fab day here in LA. The only thing that would make it better is to load Rob Ford's EZ-Cheez-keester onto a northbound jet. Curse you, Jimmy Kimmel!!

Great, you'll be in Texas the week I'm in Florida. That figures. Kick a tumbleweed for me.

Tash --
St. Louis is pretty close to Minneapolis. It's a far south suburb, right?

Hmmm...Oakland is the closest stop for me. I'll have to see if I can get my flak jacket back from the cleaners in time.

So glad to hear the Atlanta stop includes the Carter Library-- think how awful that administration would have been without their humorous antics.

Steve, we're like: Yay, high in the 20s tomorrow!!!

Clank, where do you live?

NMUA, um, no...

And hey, *I* saw Polar Vortex open for the Fifth Dimension.
