The £210 cheque...
As if to add extra celebration to the aging process, my mom actually called yesterday to greet me. Apart from mispronouncing my name since birth, she is now spreading the rumor that my birthday is on the 9th, not the 7th. Ahem.
Okay, so I may have missed that flight to Zurich and twice I locked myself out of the house keyless and mobile-phoneless... but these are normal things that occur naturally to normal people. Compared to the rest of the clan, I'm a serious, levelheaded and totally dependable person.
Will have two poems: Lemony Squeezation and The Twentieth Secret Love Poem in Velvet Avalanche, a print anthology of sensual poetry edited by Donna Hill and Jeremy Hoemsen. It is slated to go to print by the end of September. Such a thrill. Yay!

20. What did you learn from the dead? —Gina Franco
Between the 30:30 challenge, the Pedestal subs reading, the social drinking and re-installing my Sims... I have a hard time staying awake in bed at night with the laptop acting as a hot water bottle on my paunch.
Found this picture of my darling pooch lying around. She breathes new life into the expression "dog-tired". Since I haven't had time to shave my eyebrows, we've begun to look scarily alike.
