I get by with a little help from my friends. [Wednesday, Nov. 19th, 2008|02:12 pm]
The richest girl in town.
Tomorrow, my grandmother's having her right leg amputated four inches below the knee.

Saturday, I'm going with my mother to put down her dog.

In lieu of e-hugs*, please post:

- things that will make me laugh.
- job postings you think I might be interested in and a good fit for.
- submission calls (ideally poetry or short fiction).
- books I should read.

Thanks.





*Feel free, however, to keep us in your prayers. In fact, please do, if that's your thing.

serendipitous discovery:

That's even funnier if you neglect to have the sound on and then watch it a second time with the sound on.

Sure, it's a retread...

I'd like a short story that includes the following themes:
Roses, old gods, cowboy boots.
Thanks.

Also, not sure if you've read it before, but I'm currently enjoying Neil Gaiman's American Gods.

This tale of domestic terror always has me crying with laughter whenever I read it:
Some blimps are better off dead.

I'm not sure what your taste in fiction runs towards, sadly! I would recommend Jonathan Carroll's novels highly (especially Bones of the Moon), and John Crowley's Little, Big.

And you hang in there, lady!

Prayers already prayed.

And I know it's an old one, but I just reread The Color Purple (again). Think about it.
