One of the best parts about speaking to publishers on Friday was sitting next to Marc Acito, who wrote Attack of the Theater People and How I Paid for College: A Novel of Sex, Theft, Friendship & Musical Theater . I did a double-take when I sat next to him. He had gone blonde! All this year, he has done something new every day, and then blogged about it. It's been more than 300 new things so far. Still in reserve: licking a slug. Click here to read Marc's blog. Like Marc himself, it's very funny.
