Austin

Somehow, the AWP chatter is picking up already. C. Dale reports the Austin Hilton is very nearly sold out. I'm glad I'd already made reservations, not thinking space would be limited so soon. I just found out I'll be on a panel, the name of which causes me to laugh just a bit: The Order of the Disorder: Creative Writers in Disability Studies. The Order of the Disorder makes me think of The Legion of Doom. Ah, Saturday mornings. I need to move the Superfriends set up in my Netflix queue. But, I was talking about Austin. I'm looking forward to it, though with no university affiliation to help fund some of the cost, I'll have to sell plasma, old comic books, my body, to pay for it.

I'm kidding. I'm keeping the comic books.

See you there.

Yah, never sell those. You can spare a kidney, or possibly even a lung, but a comic book? NEVER.

I know! My closet is obscenely stuffed with them....

I'll be here. You know why? 'Cause I f--king LIVE HERE! You in my house now, bitch. And by "now" I mean "next March."

And I may see you the year after that, since AWP '07 is being held in Craplanta.

By the way, that previous "Anonymous" is me. Just so you know. Didn't want you getting confused. Alrighty, then. Take care.

Let's hang. I'll be there, also with no university money. Or a panel. Does someone want to give me a panel?

Paul said...

I'll make a panel just for you... :)

Laurel said...

Bradley, I second your Craplanta sentiments... and offer my pad, if I'm still here...


Ali, let's do our own panel in the hallway on poets without panels...

Ali Davis said...

Laurel baby, I am so there. Or, we could do a reading: Hot Poets Without Books or Panels.

Paul said...

Hot Poets (Girls!) Without Books or Panels?

I'm there. Front row.
