Me, cupping coffee. Don’t I look like I know what I’m doing?


A thirty-second post of goodies from my glove box while I’m on the road:

  • From my old life: The New Portland Micro Roasters, an article from Mix Magazine, in which I sound like I know what I’m talking about and show off my big nose.
  • From my current life: My story, Intoxication from Alison Tyler’s fabulous book, “J is for Jealousy,” was posted at Tousled Elegance. To be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about that. One one hand, it’s clearly copyright infringement — since they don’t have permission to publish the story and they neither asked nor let me know it was going to be printed. On the other hand, it’s (I hope) great publicity for the book (which is amazing and which you should absolutely check out). So, I dropped her a note and let her know that I didn’t mind if she kept the story up, but that it’s common courtesy to ask the author first before you publish their story in its entirety.
  • Lastly, I have this very cool talk show interview with Dr. Dick. He was funny and asked great questions and made me laugh quite a bit. At some point, so hard that I wasn’t able to answer. I read some work. I talk about creativity and lusts and writing about fetishes that aren’t your own, and all kinds of other things. I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, so I have no idea what it sounds like. Be gentle, please. The interview is in two parts, because we gabbed forever. If you can’t stand to listen to us gab, just go for the photos of me, which were taken by the awesome BAK and KM duo. (PS — I just love the fact that he said, “She has an immense erotic mind.” That’s freaking awesome!)

Part 1 is here.

Part 2 is here.

PPS — If you want to read the poem that I read in part one, it’s available online at Clean Sheets: Fire Escape.

Kiss kiss bang bang, s.

“Are you a full-time sexual athlete?” ~Question asked by Dr. Dick in our interview.
