avant-garde

Last Chance!

Have paper, wax, seals, envelopes. Have an extremely rickety idea of how to make a pdf. Still working on story. And something like 7 poems for two featured poet gigs I managed to pick up. Oof.

Keep in mind, Friday is the last day to sign up for the Omikuji Project and receive April's story, which is called The Glass Gear, and is a steampunk Cinderella tale. Any subs I receive after that will get May's as their first. This is just to keep the Post Office trip singular.

I find it hilarious, by the way, that Hallmark no longer sells stationary of any kind. Their stock in trade seems to be musical statuary and other assorted crap these days. I walked in and was assaulted with potpourri and ceramic angels.

"Do you carry paper?" I said.

"Uh...no," intoned the clerk, dusting a crystal frog with an air of boredom.

"Really? Hallmark doesn't sell stationary?"

"Yeah."

Awesome.

But I was eventually triumphant, so barring disaster, we are having a little envelope-stuffing fiesta Monday night and mailing everything out Tuesday. I still don't have all the addresses, so if you have not sent me yours manually yet, I implore you to do so.

Deep breath!
