Kerry ran the James Joyce Ramble, a 10K road race in Dedham, Massachusetts. Incredibly, there are people dressed in period costumes along the race route, reading James Joyce aloud. What a crazy idea — and somehow it all works. Would’ve been even better if it hadn’t poured. My Mom and I got wet and cold and probably would’ve been happier if we ran it.

Have you seen this at the mall? Bath Fitter sells a shell that you place over your entire bathtub and shower — woilla. You have a brand new bathroom. It’s as simple as that. Now, this is something I would think up. I cannot believe someone would buy this. “I have a dirty, gross bathtub, so I think I’ll cover it up with some plastic.” Umm… genius (right?).
