I finished reading Shane Jones's book LIGHT BOXES again this weekend. It is a done novel. I am excited to get it out. Readers are going to love it. I'm working out a pre-order deal. I'm almost ready to work out a pre-order deal.

UPDATE: Here's a link to where to go to buy Shane Jones's newest chapbook from the newest coolest placest to get chapbooks. I am thrilled about this, seriously. I am eager.

It felt fun to play in a rock band at a bar with Red Sammy on Saturday night. We did not mess up too much. We messed up just enough. In my band, Sweatpants, there are Dave on drums/vox and me on gtr/vox.

My parents visited and brought me things:
sweater ?
scarf ?
gloves ?
hat ?
Ikea table that folds $179
Ikea paper holder that rules $39
clock $4
beautiful chair $42
dry-erase board $5
microwave $60
shower curtain $3
towel $5
T.P. $3
razors $6
shower curtain rings $2
self-healing cutting mat ?
deodorant $3
I bought myself a gtr at a pawn show $100

Um, Joe Flacco handed off the ball the the second-string QB who faked a pass then threw downfield to Flacco himself for a 43-yard gain.

At the tenure party I ate things and drank things for free and I wore a suit and people were there, ATF people and AWP people. It was great. I also got to carry the heavy thing that held the wine.
