Other than my NACHRI HR paperwork, I've been reading:
- Out, a Japanese crime novel written by Natsuo Kirino. It strikes me as very Japanese, so some things that I suspect are very significant for Japanese readers aren't quite striking home the way I think they're supposed to, and the prose is pretty clunky at points. I suspect the English translation could have been better. Still, entertaining.
- Blissfully, the WaPo cover to cover every morning. Sadly, that's a lot less reading than it used to be. Death knell of print newspapers? Maybe.
- The crowdsourced May issue of Associations Now. I've been particularly enojying the new-ish monthly feature where association execs comment on common work scenarios. This month, Becky Granger came up with the idea to look at telecommuting, an increasingly popular option.
- And last night, spouse & I went to see Rock-n-Roll by Tom Stoppard at Studio Theater here in DC. I think it's probably the best Stoppard I've seen and the best play I've seen at Studio this season. It's still running for about a nother two weeks, so if you have the time and the means, I encourage you to go see it, particularly to catch Ted Van Griethuysen's excellent performance as Max (I smell a Helen Hayes nomination).
