summer, subs and specs

it's been hot here - and i am not happy about it. i am not a fan of heat, and especially not when it's muggy, in a city. i am glad i only teach from 8.30 to 12.30 because it is no fun in a room full of computers.

our plants are about as thirsty as i am, but they are doing fine. see for yourself!







i got an acceptance note from hiss magazine - four of my poems will appear in their sanity is a one trick pony issue. they considered me as a featured poet, but decided that - while the editors liked them - some of the poems i sent as an additional submission were too far from their theme (see i am not so weird after all), although one of those poems replaced an original choice. i'm thrilled to be part of hiss again!

i am sending out more subs, and have started a round of 30/30 though i doubt i will last long.

today we went out looking for glasses for my husband, but i thought that once i am there i might as well look for a pair for me, and i actually found some. and i had always believed that type of specs would never suit me (though i wished they did). i was wrong. i will post a pic in august when i actually have them.

song of the day, because i heard it earlier on and it is stuck in my head now: gypsy kings - bamboleo

congrats on the pubs and the specs and for daring to start another round! I am on day 4 and was about 99% sure I was going to drop out today, but with this news, I may give it a try. Maybe your work will inspire me. No, nevermind, it will just make me feel unworthy!!!!
