brothercyst: CURLED UP

Tuesday, March 03, 2009


To the person from Louisiana who wrote to me about Midnight Picnic and other things: That was a very sweet email, and I got some sort of delayed delivery status notification on my response, so I'm not sure if it went through. You are correct about the "Perfection" quote.

Midnight Picnic, get it from the publisher, but review it on Amazon. (No one's doing this, oh well.) I have a story coming out soon in a new issue of Lungfull!

My mother emailed me to say she didn't throw away my John Holmes porn "documentary" DVD. So where is it?

Occasionally when I have horrifically busy days at work and all I'm doing in the evening is writing for hours, I just stay at work with my laptop and write after I finish working. Going home eats like at least ninety minutes, what with getting on the subway, flopping the couch, sighing, etc. I work more if I stay in the office. Then I sleep on the floor and wake up early and get a lot of day job work done. Last night at 5 a.m. I was still writing, and when I curled up on my office floor to go to sleep, I was too wired. So I drank a beer I had sitting around the office and curled up again and slept until 7:30 a.m. then went to the gym, swam, and took a shower. I felt kind of depressed and despondent when I was going to sleep last night, but it was really just because I hate work and I got some bad news yesterday, and in the morning I felt amazing. I'm not tired at all. Who's looking for a roommate in New York? I need to move somewhere cheap. (Or, alternately, anyone want to subsidize my life in L.A.?)

I tried to review Midnight Picnic on Amazon, but I have never bought anything from Amazon, so I was unable to review your book. Sorry.

Thanks, it's okay!
