far out!

17 May

I received my 1,000th like today. Aw, thanks guys! I feel like I won a prize. I wish the prize was that I could invite all of you to a 3-day drunken beach party/writing seminar. I think we should do it. We will have a few speakers and development sessions followed by some group work and creative writing exercises. At sunset, the poets will have a poetry orgy. How fun!

At some point during the party, because it is my dream, I might force all of you to recreate the opening from Beach Blanket Bingo:



It would be the absolute ultimate! I hope you all know how to shake your hips.

On Friday night we can have a story time bonfire and a luau on Saturday night. The entire thing will be catered and there will be a full bar. We could meet, learn and have fun. I’m getting excited just thinking about it!!

One evening, my modern Moondoggie will sing this to me (it’s my party so what I say, goes):



Would you come to my party? I hope so. If I had the funding, I would make it a reality.

      Exactly. A good term, right? I used to be an editor for a literary magazine and we had poetry orgies. I sat in the corner and hid. I’m not hiding this time!

        I felt pretty solid in my opinion that you were pretty cool but the fact that you just used Schwing absolutely solidifies it.

          HA, it’s a major part of my vocabulary. Glad you can appreciate!
