Friday, July 4


Hello there. I just want to say thanks if you're still checking the blog. I know I've been a real blog delinquent. I'm giving myself detention which is partially why I'm at home this fourth of July. Okay, it's really because I don't drink or eat barbecue, I don't like being out in the sun and I'm not a fan of fireworks... But it's nice to have a day off. I did some writing this morning, then I treated myself to a tasty carb breakfast at the diner (hash browns and toast, 2 cups of coffee) worked out for ninety minutes, then bought new jeans. Quite a nice day. I'm happy to stay in tonight with my laptop, a frozen burrito and some DVDs.

Although I'm sort of over reporting on the minutiae of my life, a lot has happened in the past few months:

1. T/A and I broke up. It's been completely amicable and we're still truly good friends. We see each other frequently and she even gave me her old bike. She's awesome.

2. I got a bike.

3. Been keeping up my promise to get my "literal and literary asses in line". I've been going to the gym and writing a ton. I've finished a few new poems and have drafts of a few essays. And I'm on my way to semi-sveltdom.

4. Also reading alot and keeping up my private paper blog, also known as my journal.

5. PVC is still awesome, awesome, awesome. It's probably one of the best things I've been involved with in all my years being involved in such things.

6. I'm part of the Non Sequitur 2008 Summer Festival in August. This year's theme is one of my favorite topics; Rejection. I highly suggest you check it out.
