Just for fun:

Discovered this ticklish Sims 2 video at YouTube — ticklish because I know the actual commands that were used to make the Sims do what they had to do on film. The melding of the two versions (English and Simlish) of Charlotte Martin's Beautiful Life is rather cool, too!

Congrats per usual, but it's more interesting to read about your life than your publications. I know they mean much to you, and there's no shame in that, nor should there be. Some venues you appear in I quit sending work to because I thought their editorial walls too easily scaled.

That's just me. I'm suspicious of Santa Claus.

How are things going as Poetry Editor at Pedestal? That's a seat of power because it's the only fair-paying online journal I know of, and John's a good guy.

Congratulations Arlene. Col San Martino as a name sounds to me familiar, where is it?
Best wishes, Davide

thanks for dropping by, CE! you must be a masochist to want to read about my life. LOL! and yes, john's a dream to work with. i'm not the editor on duty right now, so things are really quiet.

oh yesssss, nicomaniax! did you see all those umbrella pictures? the lengths to which they go? **giggle depilation congruencies**

thanks, davide! col san martino is somewhere near conegliano, vittorio veneto. we spent a day there at an agriturismo some years ago. gorgeous hills!

Do you have a poem by the title "Col San Martino"? I would like to read that, it's my hometown!
