Ok, I never do these tag things but I thought for once I’d try I was tagged by Poet Scott Owens via Facebook but I don’t have very many people to tag on my end so I’m just going to post my responses but I’d love to see some of my family members and/or non-poetry friends try it as well as my writerly friends.
1-I’m amazed at how much (as a fairly liberal feminist) I enjoy being a housewife.
2-I love to make cookies without a recipe.
3-But since I appear to be sensitive to products made with flour, I really shouldn’t eat said cookies.
4-I hope that my poetry manuscript will be accepted by a publisher in 2009.
5-In 2009 I would really like to teach some poetry workshops, I work cheap
6-I wake up almost everyday at 4am and then try to go back to sleep.
7-On Christmas Eve I am revising poems and sending them out. Is that dedication or craziness?
8-I would really like if most everyone could get along, or at least tolerate each other.
9-Doing this is delaying the inevitable need to clean the bathrooms.
10-Hope that I get more than 2 entries in the first contest I’m holding over at Shape of a Box. (starts January 2nd)
11-Wondering what else we can fry and/or put in chocolate for New Year’s Fondue party that we haven’t tried already?
12-Is reading a non-fiction book, she will not name, that she is tempted to just stop reading which is against her rules because even if she doesn’t like a book she finishes it!
13-Seriously considering going to the Mall even though she doesn’t need to buy anything just to watch people going crazy.
14-Yes it is 11:40 and I still need to get dressed, I was waiting to have the bathrooms clenaned, see #9
15-Is hoping at AWP that she actually manages to talk to people, overcoming her innate introversion.
16-Can’t wait to get a release date for her first chapbook “At the A & P Meridiem” cause all i can still say is coming out in 2009 from Puddinghouse Publications.
Happy Holidays everyone!
