AWP Says Thanks, But No Thanks
Found out this week that the Finishing Line Press reading I proposed for AWP 2009 in Chicago was rejected. Ah, well... I'll still be there mingling and signing After the Poison at the book fair.
Since I've become a total Mac convert, I'm buying myself and iPhone for my birthday in September. For Christmas I might by myself a new car. My current ride is 10+ years old and slowly starting to fall apart. I'll probably get a Ford Focus. Did you know that an auxiliary port for your iPod/Phone comes standard in a Focus? I'm just sayin'...
I had this horrible dream that I was living in the Cotton Mill Lofts again and my BFF had hung her dogs over one of the beams with an electrical cord. In the dream, not only was I able to bring one of them back to life, but turn him back into a puppy. God knows what Freud what say about all that, but I've got a poem cooking in my brain.
I have so many books of poetry now that they need their own bookcase. I'm buying one this weekend. And a new lamp. And some picture frames. And a throw to cover up a comfortable, but ugly chair.
