Well, I'm back in Hamilton, NY. It's freaking cold! I'm so observant.
AWP! I'm really looking forward to attending it this year. Granted, I will be a badgeless outcast, but who cares!
Will you be at AWP? I hope so! I hear this writer will be there to give a "hush hush" reading! Tony, you can finally get your copy of T.D.C signed!
The latest installment of Boxcar Poetry Review is up. It features a conversation between Ivy Alvarez and Lee Herrick. Part two of the conversation will appear in the next issue.
I hope those with badges at AWP won't point at the badgeless and scream "Unclean!"
Have I mentioned how much I love my office?
Mitt Romney is sexy.
C. Dale will be wearing other people's badges as he walks around AWP! Must be nice to have more than one AWP badge! I should've gone to med school.
Did you make the list? Of course not! I did.
And no: Dan Brown won't be at AWP. I made that up.
You know that Mark Yakich book of poems, Unrelated Individuals Forming a Group Waiting to Cross? The title has been occurring to me at different moments lately. Unrelated Individuals Forming a Group Waiting to Piss. Unrelated Individuals Forming a Group Waiting for their Dogs to Piss.
Luna reviews Gonzalez.

Glad you're back! Hope to see you at AWP!

I found your blog via Deborah Adler's site. She doesn't know who I am.

Your post today is funny! Mit Romney, while not my type (he's not skeptical enough)does have a certain bushy eyebrow charm.

Good luck at AWP. It's like you're a phantom runner in a road race (no number). Are you the phantom poet?

But so did I!

Not me, but so what!

Hey, don't you owe me lunch?! AWP would be the perfect place/time to treat. Or, I'll let it go if you come to the Terrain.org 10th Anniversary Reading on Thursday, January 31, at Cornelia Street Cafe, 6-8 p.m.

Or maybe you don't owe me lunch after all, but could come to the reading and/or stop by the Terrain.org table (#480) where it's too expensive to afford Internet access ($450, criminy) and too expensive for a power outlet at the table ($185) so I'm hoping my extra batteries will carry the laptop slideshow through.

Oh good God, why am I bothering you with all this?! Sorry. Hope to see you there, though.

If you're sans credentials, Eduardo, are you coming to AWP in disguise?

If it's a joke I don't get it.
