a sensible career move.

Haven’t opened my computer for 6 days…which means I’ve neither posted to my own blog nor read any of the surely wonderful things my friends here in the blogCosmos have written lately.

I feel Guilt.

Really? Oh yes.

Suddenly I feel like a dumb Fuck-Up on my blog just like I do in Real Life!

So goes: the honeymoon phase between my now not-so-new blog & I.

Has anyone around here figured out how to blog for Pay yet?

Am I serious? Oh shit yes! With no apologies to the Purist. My blog brings me Joy and if I were already loaded with dough joy might be pay a-plenty. But it’s not and neither am I — moreover, it’s getting cold in Vermont. I try to be upbeat about homelessnes; a chronic affliction which, if nothing else, has worked a wonder-job on my empathic qualities

Also on my faith in the marketable quality of my writing. More precisely, faith in the certainty that I must sell some before my poor brains freeze.

Think I’ll write a fast book about drugs. I say Basketball Diaries was the last thing done well on the topic. A dizzying plentitude of brains have been warped by all kind-o drugs in the quarter-century since — so by my pro estimate we’re due for a few choice words about Why.

My book about drugs will be Good. Shit it will be the shaZam funny-Bomb. Except in the parts where you’ll cry.

Hell Yes! This is my smartest idea since I snuck into that college class about Organic Chemistry.

    i’d buy your book. ‘course, i’d prolly buy it used at powells or somewheres, cheating you outta your 12cents in royalties, and you’d *still* be stuck on someone’s couch. but i’d buy it. hell, i’d even read it.

    Buy it used? I see the logic. But that would be like buying a used box of Cracker Jacks — with no Surprise inside!

    Read it? Guess maybe ya’ll be Slackin out there in Humbolt County. Back East here we done killed too many brain cells from drugs to read whole books. Except the good bits of Bust magazine.

    It’s a picture book Velma.
