On Friday night I went to see Eddie Izzard at the Vogue Theater and it was great. He started out with some Fantastic Four jokes and they resurfaced throughout the night. Elvis Costello was there, and though I wouldn’t know her to see her, Diana Krall was apparently there too. Eddie, for those of you who don’t know, is a British transvestite stand-up comic. A good chunk of his material is historical jokes (“we stole countries with the cunning use of flags”) and on Friday he was even wearing fake boobs, which he puts over his ears on airplanes to block out crying babies.
After the show, Chris, Darcey and I went to some sushi place on Granville, and then we went back to Chris’ work where participated in the hot new activity that is going to replace rollerblading (I can only hope) – the orbevator!!! Fun for the whole family – except for Uncle Steve.
IN THE NEWS: The Bush Administration issued a new environmental rule that will allow more than 17,000 power plants, refineries, mills, and chemical factories to upgrade their facilities without installing up-to-date antipollution technology, even in cases where the renovation will result in additional pollution. Jerk.
