Chicago director, producer, raconteur, and all-around swell fellow Don Hall has the same birthday as I do. He also has a wonderful (and crazy) wife. You may remember that last year she organized a bunch of Don's friends to wake him up at 6 am by singing Happy Birthday to him while gathered creepily around his bed. This year she set up a blog called "Don Hall is a Horse's Ass" and solicited posts from all of his friends. Here's my and Erica's contributions.
