I don't know what's up with Three-Legged Cat, but his latest adventure is right up there with the time he drank lighter fluid then tried to breathe flames like a dragon. You know where the link is.

Speaking of my poorly crafted poesy, I'm giving a guest reading/talk in a poetry class this week. The class read my little book and now I'm supposed to answer questions about it. Should be interesting. I did this once before and it was a lot of fun.

*

I've been thinking about sending out poems again. It's been over a year since I've sent anything out, Brief Weather... excepted. I sorta miss contributor copies.

I would like to publicly apologize to Jordan. I didn't mean to ruffle your feathers. From here on out I am only Nice Poetry Guy. I will love my neighbors. I will love NEG. I will make love to Tony Tost. I will give Aaron Tieger a wet willie. I'll take Reb up on that fisting offer.

So you know what's really humbling? Watching PhD students who came in at the same time or after you graduating and getting their funny hats. And me, I'm still not dissertating.

*

This week at the University of Oregon, there are absolutely NO students who need writing help. Seriously. You should see my calendar.

I wrote a book for Kristin. I wrote a book for Marci. I wrote a book for Laura. I need to stop writing books for women. I need to write a book for a rugby team. Or a crotchety old minor poet.

You need to write a book about me fisting you. I'm both crotchety and minor!

To,

They'll be no beerdrinking with this brand of honesty...and a vegan? With your meaty cooking? Seriously, it's another disaster begging to be written.

Speaking of unsolicited honesty...

Who is NEG?

Dinner with a vegan is always a bad idea. And! And! What if you do have dinner with her and find out that--despite her vegan status
--you really dig her and want to, you know, comfy down with her. Then you're gonna really be tortured.

Thanks, Tony.
