It won't stop raining here. it's like the world's longest-running wet T-shirt contest, although I have to say every other item in the closet is drenched too. Umbrellas? I never met an umbrella I couldn't break inside of five minutes.
Best American Erotica 2007 is due in a week. I am: Not Ready.
I've neglected my time with you here terribly, but I promise to ship this big girl off soon, and dry myself off.
In the meantime, my summer plans have been shaping up.
I'm going to be speaking at the L.A. Times Book Festival at the end of April, and I hope I'll see a lot of old friends. I'm on a panel with Dennis Cooper and Karen Finley, called "Pushing the Envelope," although I hope we'll do more than that, with our combined word-shredding power.
Then in June, is SheShamans. Bring your 'shrooms and knitting.
In July, I'm attending a women's blog conference called BlogHer, that I think will be like going to blogging grad school. Any of you bloggers in babeland out there— please, please, meet me at the pool! It's in San Jose, CA, so I'll be driving over the hill.
I'm also giving workshop, on Blog Sex, of course, for Sunday. I'm also like to propose a unofficial workshop on blogging for authors and other "word artists," since I've decided I'm an expert on that, too.
