Celebration: Daniel Handler’s Birthday
Mission: Read some Lemony Snicket
Notes: Another fail, two in a row… oh the shame. Born in San Francisco on this day in 1970, Daniel Handler is Lemony Snicket’s *ahem* “handler”. Lemony Snicket is probably most famous, a word which here means well known, for writing “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, although he also penned the Christmas story “The Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming” – a book which Reuben is normally happy to enjoy at bedtime, yet tonight downright refused to listen to.
Meanwhile, while writing this post I noticed that Wikipedia was broken. They had this book listed as “The Lake Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming” and as such the link wasn’t working. Don’t worry – I hit that Edit button & fixed it. Boom!
