Free Form
Because it's after 4:00 A.M., and I just finished reading a few Blogs of poet-pals of mine,and I finished watching a movie I've never seen, only an hour ago("Scarface"), and before that, I attended the GAYAs(pronounced Guy-ahhs, they are the Georgia Author of the Year Awards),and it's late, and I'm sleepy, but I still want to write, I am going to list the images that run through my head, as I review the evening. No editing, just I go:
Kodac's new, silver-y goatee(cute!)
Collin's silky-black jacket(looks brand-new)
Collin's freckles, and the way he can still blush, when Geri Taran speaks glowingly of his great work
Leaning over to hug Geri, and the scent of her hair"You smell sweet--like gardenias", I said....
She turned her head-- to reveal flowers--PINNED IN HER HAIR "They're from my garden", she said.(yes, they were Gardenias!)
An older lady sitting in front of Hansoo & I who looked REALLY shocked when Collin said "Fuck".
Ginger Murchison saying to me,"You got married?!"
Al Pacino wincing when that guy gets killed in the shower with a um, chain-saw--is that what it's called?And just a wince?--looks like he'd have thrown up, or SOMEthing...
Michelle Pfeiffer, in ANY dress in the film.Or OUT of any dress in the film.
Toaster Mag is going away.Makes me sad.Sigh.(I read that in Dustin Brookshire's Blog)
Cherryl Floyd-Miller looks SO cute in her pic(at her Blog) with those little teeny skinny braids.
Bing cherries in the bedroom,in that pretty china-bowl next to the We Fly CD from Kodac.
Hearing my second-cuz, Gigi's voice in a message on my cell.Thinking how pretty she is,how cute she & Andrea are together, how I've got to tell her she was right--I love that show, "The L-Word".
Can't wait to get the SET of DVD's from Seasons 1-3!!
Pineapple Margaritas--wish I had another one.YUM!!!("Outback" features them. I had a salad with Ahi--Tuna after leaving the GAYAs)

Goodnight, and CONGRATS to Collin Kelley, and Kodac Harrison, for wining the Taran Family Memorial Award--for Java Monkey Speaks Anthology, Volume II, and for their many contributions to POETRY IN GEORGIA!

I'm so glad you and Hansoo were there. Did you see the old guy jumping me about saying fuck? Read my blog. I wrote it up there. It's the 21st Century, people. We need more people saying "fuck." Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck. :)

I'm so excited for CK and Kodac.

Yeah, I'm bummed about ToasterMag, but I'm tossing around the idea of starting a quarterly ezine.

I emailed Jennifer about the time issue. Hopefully, everything will work out.

Lisa, what fun I'm having. Beau Cutts telephoned me yesterday to say that he'd looked at Georgia Writers Association's (GWA) listing on Wikipedia and it was lame. The Georgia Author of the Year Awards info had only a reference to the 2004 event and little more. He suggested that I go in and update it all. Trouble is, I was completely unaware that there was anything on Wikipedia about GWA and furthermore, I didn't know how to use it.

Well, all that's changed now. But... as a result I was led to your blog and your comments about GAYA and here I am saying hello.

Also, thanks to Collin, I now have a blog, too. Take a peek.
