I can't believe I will be missing F. Sionil Jose tomorrow night, but the Gods of Scheduling appear to have it in for me. Instead, I will be hostess-ing a fundraiser for my neighborhood school. I have been staring at the previous two sentences for several minutes now and trying to make them peacefully co-exist in my little mind. Hmmmm. Can't do it. So let's just move on, shall we?
In other reading news, Marianne Villanueva will be ensnaring hapless Borders customers in her sneaky narrative web at Stonestown on Saturday, May 7th @ 7:00. For Mayor of the Roses, bien sûr (is "bien sûr" more obnoxious than "natch?" I use both, naturalmente. Hahahahahahaha!). I can't be there because I will be clogging my arteries at a despedida for my much-loved aunt and uncle.
Finally, just in case you were wondering, that story of mine came to 3,027 words. *strikes the Heisman Trophy pose*
