off, off forth on swing

To AWP:
Can I just quote Hopkinis' Windhover during my panel?
I already use the superbowl as a reference so how much weirder would that be?
I'm SO excited to see High Touch & Dr. Write & Strange Polks and meet Terrible Mother. A convergence of friends. I suppose there ARE other reasons to convene but this is the best one.
I give my panel presentation with Margot Singer and Nick Flynn and David Shields on Saturday. I wish it was on Wednesday so then the rest of the conference would just be relaxing but it's probably for the best I stay somewhat on task.
The best bit is that after this, it's Spring Break at Grand U so I can relax afterwards. What a semester! What a winter!
It's going to be 60 degrees. I'm bringing skirts and a swimmin' suit.
If I can report from there I will.

I'm bringing a suit to, but I'm not hopeful. The forecast calls for rain. or sprinkles. Maybe nice sprinkles.
Can't wait to see you!!

I'm hoping for Wi-Fi at the hotel!

No suit for me. You'll thank me later.

That sounded much dirtier than I meant it.

I hope all is well and everyone is warm in balmy GA. It's raining like crazy here in Baltmore, Hon. I loved your recent blogs.

Oh, we should have hung out more, Nik. Should have, should have. But next year, I swear, we shall!

You were totally adorable at that party, too, telling other people "This is Terrible Mother." It killed me. Killed me dead.

TM,
I just posted that it wasn't enough. Maybe next year!
