While I'm gone Diana Marie Delgado will be taking over my blog.
I first heard about Diana about three years ago. R called me up and started raving about a young Chicana poet. For a few minutes I thought he was talking about me. I'm so Eduardo-centric. But then he told me her name. My first thought? Damn, I wish I were "delgado" instead of chubby. My second thought? The first girl who forced me to kiss her was named Diana. My third thought? Look at her! She's working three names!
I finally had the pleasure of meeting Diana last March in NYC. She was a delight. Smart, funny, and classy. Just like me! I'm so Eduardo-centric.
She's going to be a wonderful blogger.
