Pithy title about KBG goes here

Last night I broke up my little gym/writing routine, and went to the KGB reading. nick_kaufmann has a great write-up of it right here. Personally, my favorite part of the evening was when ellen_datlow mentioned that it was Laird's first time in NYC, and we all mugged the shit out of him! Fun times. Also: it has become clear to me that I cannot be seated anywhere in the vicinity of Kaufmann and jplangan. While everyone else was acting most adult-like (kudos to sinboy and Michael Shea for not calling the police), the three of us were by turns profane, filthy, raucous, gibbous, and quite possibly squamous - at one point, I laughed so hard, I almost shot rice out of my nose. Well, I'm calling it rice. At any rate, I'm pretty sure I broke a rib. rosefox shook her head a lot. Although, in our defense, it was imago1 who brought up rumpy-pumpyism. I don't know who to blame for the killer chimp conversation, though. [::shudder::]

The evening peaked when we were served a crispy Leviathan. I pealed back the fried exterior of the giant fried whole fish, and found its gelatinous eyeball winking most hideously and saucily at me. Then I tried to pry open its mouth so I could practice my mad ventriloquizm skillz on it; and when that failed, I tried to make it my evil puppet bitch. All I can say is, if maryrobinette had seen me, she probably would have put me down with a chopstick to the heart. I wouldn't have blamed her. All in all, it was a great evening. Tonight I made up for it by going to the gym, PLUS stopping at Starbucks for an hour of writing. But without a big-ass fried fish staring at me, it just wasn't as fun.

Marine Autumn

I owe you marine autumn
With dankness at its roots
and fog like a grape
and the graceful sun of the country;
and the silent space
in which sorrows lose themselves
and only the bright crown
of joy comes to the surface.

--Pablo Neruda.
