Or thereabouts, five and a half years of my life ends and the "career" path shifts from public to academic. I'm kind of numb. Perhaps it's the two and a half hours sleep. Yes. perhaps becomes so. I feel like the soldier who just gets leave in the world war two movie. You know what happens to him, same as the ensign wearing the red Star Trek shirt.

It's in my hands. It's out of my hands. Freaking hands, make up your mind!

And tonight the number was 4-4-1 and I took home the Writers Block door prize for the first time. I got some notecards and a journal that my wife snapped up once she saw them. They're gone, I have no idea where they are now. Oh well!

The upswing continues. It was fun. I snorted. Maranda had the line of the month for a product that, well, being a gentleman I will not name. It will be brought up, in tones that are not hushed, for years. Joanna looked nice, that's all I'm gonna say. There were virgins, a poet slumming it while on tour, an English gal in the crowd - and boy does Scott do a horrible accent.

I read two new ones. The first was already planned. I read the confessional, a 'mildly shocking' admission of shoe love. I was going to read the revised Isotopes, but Rose wasn't there and since she helped edit it, I wanted her there. So I read a new poem called Pink Guitar Trigger that I wrote today.

Dave showed up. Still going strong after road tripping it from Indianapolis today. I hope he takes his vitamins and gets some rest. I'm just sayin'

My son's new thing is to lift up the toilet seat and slam it down. Makes a nice bang when you're sitting down here.

Oh, and this. I guess they're throwing a party for me at work tomorrow. I was talking with a couple of coworkers and one asked when my last day was. told him Friday. he then said a couple of other things then asked if I would be at my party on Thursday.

Um....

The guy sitting next to him just put his head in his hands and shook his head.

All I said was, "That was brilliant, Dude" and walked away.

It's really hard to put one over on me, especially when you telegraph the surprise a day in advance.
