The lake is not really on fire

June 5, 2021
As the weather finally cooled off the wind became a steady roar. Hope texts me "is Lake Luna where you spent the summer 2 years ago?" Suddenly I'm totally over the angst about not having a place to park the mothership for the summer. Turns out the Lake wasn't quite on fire but close enough.…

    Not to pick on Hubbin but he doesn't do holidays well because they are never populated with the midwestern family members that can only live in his head. My "whatever the hell it is" was in full flare Saturday and it was all I could do to crawl out of bed and follow him to…

    Weird advice from the POC of the Creative Writing dept when I tried to find out what my 27 y/o English degree was worth. It wasn't really advice so much as a little crack in the facade of a stranger. Before we were done she had outlined a full year of indentured servitude and navel-gazing…

    I made it into town early this morning for the last round of allergy shots for another month. I dread that South Hill location. Some genius decided no more free parking across the street but did not provide more non-free parking so I always end up parking a block or two away and climbing the…

    I was supposed to go to Wisconsin a year ago. It was supposed to be ruminant and speculative. It wasn't meant to be scary and infected. It wasn't meant to be an add-on to somebody else's thing. But Hubbins Aunt has liver cancer and he's melting down because he wants to be there NOW even…

    It was such a dumb thing. A "friend" thought to tell me I couldn't discuss a certain topic in light of real things going on. Apparently, you cannot call out your peers on silly stuff. There will be no jokes here. Yes, a petty male type once again telling the little lady none of that…

    I know I have nothing to say about myself lest it detracts from the work. In a world where everything format matters the thing arrives in a format, I would never have given my blessing. Now the bots send back a reply with a condescending tone. Better to make big mistakes and get them over…

    Yesterday I got Wu his first Trumpvirus shot, reassuringly delivered by the local fire chief, and was mentally congratulating myself on the completion of 200,000 words about the lockdown of 2020. He never got out of the car and he also didn't vagal. 30 minutes later my phone rings in the middle o...

    Where the hell have I been? I got hyper absorbed in getting my "Trump virus" cure and spiraled down into a hole of navel-gazing that it took a message from my "imaginary friend" to shake loose. That's a real person. I haven't actually gone full 5 year old. It's just the people I've surrounded mys...

    Ok, no choice but to get over my case of the yips and get back to screaming at the Dragon. 55 pages today and I just have to stop. It's like running marathons. Started watching a documentary about Paradise California. So sad. Just go downstairs and work a little bit more on your weird version&hel...
