Heading to AWP tomorrow. Excited. Will see the bitchin' MIKE YOUNG read on Wednesday night. I think master blaster TAO LIN is reading Friday. Also looking forward to LYDIA DAVIS, BRIAN EVENSON, ANDER MONSON, MICHAEL MARTONE, AMY HEMPEL, and etc. Also excited about meeting lots of people I've e-known for a long time now. Should be good shit.

In my absence, the gracious JEREME DEAN is going to be guest blogging at one of my poker blogs. If you play poker, go read. He is a very smart player and I'm excited he'll get to talk it up.

I'm going to try very hard not to blow $200 within the first 30 minutes of walking around the book fair this year. VERY VERY HARD.

Good announcement when I get back, related to LC. It refers to someone linked here and something excellent that came out of them.

Man, that's awesome! I don't have to say have a great time, it's kind of impossible not to (unless mugging or something, but still), but have a great time. Carry around ziploc bags and have all of the people you listed breathe into them and trap their breath and mail it to me.

I planned to go to AWP.

I planned to have a job to pay for AWP.
