At long last - a post

Hola -

I've been sunk in a work whole all week and will probably be there for the next two weeks, but I thought I would say this:

The reading in New Haven was a blast. Jen and Shanna were fantastic and the bar was wild. Real low ceilings. You could hear people walking right on top of you.

Jen and I had some wine on the train. Then sandwiches on the way back. Nice, good looking crowd. I like Yale. I think I should go there. For free. And get a degree in kayaking or something.

I've been working on my website:

Yup. I'm learning how to do it on my own. Joel, my ex-boyfriend and computer whiz extraordinair taught me last weekend and now I'm still figuring it out, but at least I got a site!

It's really fancy.

I just finished my questions for Kate Greenstreet's first book interviews- on I hope I didn't sound to "mentally challenged."

Reading in New Haven, CT with Jenny Knox & Shanna Compton!

So, I secretly call this our "Reading at Yale." Is that okay? I feel okay with that.

Us ladies will be taking the train. I do believe that calls for some "wine, wine on the train.." (sung to the tune of Home on the Range).
