I had dinner with my best friend from when I was a baby.
Played harmonica with the “The Calamity Janes” at the Rod and Gun club in Williamsburg. My friend Chris discovered that he is a prodigy at zooming in and out on a FlipCam.
Saturday, all day: Writing day. Rewrote some jokes for an animation project I’m working on with the cartoonist Paul Noth, and continued putting a graphic novel idea into manuscript format. Also swam in the pool at my temple.
I had a dream that Jerry Garcia and I were solving a murder at a high school.
Zachary Kanin is a cartoonist for The New Yorker and the author of The Short Book. His work is the only man-made object that can be seen from outer space.
