Thank you, Susan, for Monkeys. It had everything I love about you but without the “repeat” that I felt in Rapture.  I think Spencer said once that this was his favorite selection of short stories.  Each story opened up the characters a little bit more.  I was amazed when some things happened–the pregnancy, the mom dying–and I felt and believed it like I was in the family.  Like it was a thing you just couldn’t see coming.  I never questioned it.

Work all the time–which is good, really.  Kenny’s coming up tonight!  Knitting circle tonight too!  Now, time to get dressed and eat before I walk the walk to the Fashion Bug.

You’d think I would have more to say in the summer, but, unfortuanatly, I tend to use my summers for non-writerly things since I actually have time.  I’ve been reading a lot of Melissa’s poetry, and doing a terrible job of mailing her back.  I’ve been writing a lot of snippets here and there, and doing a lot of editing–for SU Review and for manuscripts.  I also have been spinning wool a lot and screening lots of shirts.  Also–work at Fashion Bug.

I will say I got most of the way through the July and August issue of Poetry and was very impressed.  The conceptual/flarf section did, I think, a really good job of presenting poetry in that “genre” that wasn’t–I’m sure there’s a better word for this–but that wasn’t dumb. It was all really funny and nice and sort of got to me in a good way.

Um.  I should probably be doing a million other things with my summer.  There’s never enough time.  I haven’t seen so many of my friends.  Blah blah blah.  It is nice to have money, though.

I miss you.
