A reading with bite

If you’re looking to get into the Halloween spirit a day early you could hie yourself over to the Georgetown Barnes & Noble tonight at 7:30pm. Eric Nuzum, Petworth resident and author of the enjoyable The Dead Travel Fast: Stalking Vampires from Nosferatu to Count Chocula will be doing a reading. The book is an entertaining survey of the obsession so many people have with vampires and it has no shortage of amusing bits that Nuzum might read from.

My personal favorite part of the book covers his tour jaunt to Transylvania where he discovers that, to paraphrase Dennis Miller, the worst thing about vampire tourism is the people you go on the tour with.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
