It's been a busy weekend. I worked at the STD (shuddup, it's the unfortunate abbreviation for the National English Honor Society) book sale/food sale yesterday morning and then Elise, Jeremy, and I judged Ready-Writing for the Regional UIL competition. After that, food, drinks, good conversation until all hours. It was a good time. There's nothing quite like talking with people who like nerdy introspection as much as I do.
Today has been an asswhip. I still feel like death, but now it's weird back pain. I think I have a kidney infection or something, so I'm hopped up on meds with my fingers crossed that it GOES AWAY soon.
I finished my conference paper for my fake conference in class tomorrow. Well, finished is a bit of a strong word. I have a page or so left, and I'll do that tomorrow when I proofread. It's pretty shitty, but I'm completely unenthused.
On the brighter, nicer side...I received an interesting e-mail today in reference to the 'zine. A theater company from NYC e-mailed to ask if I'd like to attend their preview party and a showing of DEAD CITY...a "contemporary riff on Ulysses." Now, given that I live in Texas, that's a problem. If I could go, I tooootally would love to.
Go check 'em out at www.newgeorges.org.
In the meantime, I'm working on getting one of our writers from the NYC area to attend and write about it for the June issue. Or maybe I should check out weekend flights. Hmmm.
