Kate Hewlett's "Swearing Jar" play and trip to New York City

Couldn’t swing going to the Chicago Stargate convention with Joe Flanigan, David Hewlett, Jason Momoa, Brian J. Smith and more (darn darn darn) but… Kate Hewlett’s play, The Swearing Jar, had just opened. It was a LOT cheaper to grab the train, take a subway, hike down and see the play, which was a very affordable $18.

But first, since we were in the city, we hit Forbidden Planet, a comic book/scifi store. It’s more comic oriented, but I always take a look because it’s just a few minutes away from the huge The Strand bookstore. And lo and behold, I found a Dalek money bank! Cool, and it was light, so I bought it and it filled up the backpack. Fortunately I didn’t find any books at the Strand (considering the stack at home from recent library book sales, that’s good).
