Post Xmas Bits


I survived spending Xmas alone. No emotional or physical scars. I called home a lot these past few days. My little nephews and nieces drew me thank you cards for their gifts. How sweet! I can't wait for the cards to arrive in the mail.

The painting is by Roberto Juarez.
*
I went out for Chinese on Xmas day. Alone. It's the first time I've had Chinese on Xmas day. Fun fun fun. And the nice lady behind the counter gave me TWO fortune cookies!
*
I'm surprised and disturbed by my capacity to enjoy solitude. I should become a hermit. But who has the time to shop for sackcloth?
*
Have you seen the cover for the Digerati anthology? Great, no?
*
Chinese cookie fortune #1: Your love life will soon be happy and harmonious.
*
I'm really looking forward to Stefi Weisburd's first book: The Wind-Up Gods.
*
Jacob's gift.
*
I love reading about the daily lives of New Yorkers. I would love to live like this.
*
I gave myself a Xmas present this year. I signed up with a online porn site. My first one! And no, it's not Sean Cody. Okay, why I'm writing this on my blog?
*
This cat is beyond cute.
*
Chinese cookie fortune #2: Your planning will bring rich rewards.
*
This news story is strange.
*
The latest installment of Slope is up.

Confession: Last night I dreamt I was in the bed with Liam Rector. He kept pulling objects out of his mouth: a stuffed canary, a pen, matches, a paper cup. I asked him, What are you? A Joseph Cornell box? He just laughed, and said, You know. My last name kinda of rhymes with rectum.

Hmm. Thanks Liam.

By God, Liam Rector?

I spent Christmas alone. Like you, I was scared--I enjoyed it. I ordered pizza like a true New Yorker!

Eduardo: sorry you were alone (where was Rigo?), but it sounds like you took good care of yourself. Chinese food on Christmas day is the best.
