Between your hard work on the crazily fun Mad Hatters' Review and putting together these stunning NYC reading lineups, Carol, not to mention your own musical prose disjunctions, well, I just want to thank you for doing so much for the innovative community.

We all owe people like you a huge round of applause.

thanks so much, lance! i'm theoretically blushing. a girl like i loves to be appreciated & she in turn, appreciates the support, she says (from the first person plural pov).

but really, it's all so much fun. sure beats getting yelled at by moronic judges and fighting with nasty baby prosecutors from affluent hoods!

now --- guess who's reading in march? looks quite likely that 2/3 of the event will feature two playful sorts - your blog founding pardner here, the seriously droll mr. pelton, & the inventive mr. tomasula. but before that reading, we'll be featuring deb olin unferth and norman lock. so tie a skein of string onto your hat and let her fly!
