The Haps

1) Joyland Stories will soon be a part of the daily dose of aweomse that is CellStories, a site that sends cell phone and Blackberry (etc.) users a new short story every day (you can also read the stories at the link above). Sounds like a great way to pass a commute, and is probably the second reason on my list of reasons to maybe possibly someday get a cellphone (the first being to receive amusing texts from AMT, and third being in case I am ever accidentally (or on purpose, I guess) locked in a closet.

2) The finalists for Journey Prize 21 will be announced at Ben McNally books on October 1, and I'll be there to help make the presentation. I'm really looking forward to celebrating such great work.

3) A story of mine called "Dykadelic" will be in the yet-to-be-launched journal *The Milan Review* sometime this fall.

4) I'll be reading at the Draft Reading Series on October 4 at the Blue Moon Pub. Only new drafty works are to be read there, so who knows what I'll be presenting.

5) Finally, for those who said it couldn't be done, I have made it through a week with a left hand mouse and, though I still hate it a lot, this morning when someone *moved my mouse* to the right side of the keyboard (oh, don't even ask) I *moved it back*. New neural pathways, here I come!

You let me down easy / you let me down hard

there are other reasons to get a cell! you could get locked in a trunk, too! actually, once, someone in my old MA apt got stuck in our downstairs bathroom and only got out by calling the party -- i.e. calling the living room -- to ask someone to get her out.

that could happen to you!! Get one NOW!
