« Part 3 of 3 chats with three generation of wonderful men (Didi Menendez) | Main | "Fairy Tale" [by Robert Desnos] »

February 12, 2009


You had me at GREEK OLIVES from AE STALLINGS. How cool are you?!

I carried several books of poetry, issues of 32 Poems magazine, and an antelope.

Hey, Deborah... I looked all over for an antelope, but all I could snare was a tiny frisbee!!

Sounds like a heavy weight to be carrying in your tote bag...thankfully you can stop at your room and drop some stuff off. :)

I'm not at the conference this year, but hopefully in 2010.

"Bookworm impulse buying!" is what happens whenever I attend these is a dream.

Don, I'm so sorry we didn't get to meet! And did you not pick up my swag? It was called "the best of the conference." Hint: it's small, it locks, and don't lose the key... I'll send you a pair, as well as my book (out Tuesday!).

I carried my heart on my sleeve. And in my purse, headache powders. Cause of all the bourbons I had for supper, yo.
