With last weekend's brouhaha becoming a distant memory, you're probably having trouble readjusting to the life of a working stiff. Fuck it. Yank off those work duds, grab a drum and head over to Super Happy Fun Land for an open drum circle. After a couple of hours of beating away your frustrations (on a drum, you sick bastard), you just might be able to face the rest of the workweek. Or you could discover your inner yawp and realize you're never going to go back to the cube-farm again. Would that be such a bad thing? 7 p.m. 2610 Ashland. For information, call 713-880-2100 or visit www.superhappyfunland.com. Free.

Maybe you didn't take our advice yesterday and now you're sitting at the office, full of stress and disillusionment. It can't be that bad. Do you remember Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day? Judith Viorst penned this children's book over 30 years ago. It's about a boy named Alexander who had a terrible, horrible...you know where we're going with this. Viorst will speak at a luncheon today at 11:30 a.m. River Oaks Country Club, 1600 River Oaks Boulevard. For information, call 713-522-1138. $75.
