Hallo!

(no subject)

Confluence is tomorrow! Huzzah! I'm excited, I bought some food and a case of Mike's, and I've been hunting through my boxes of stuff, looking for the panda ears. I haven't found them yet (I suspect they're in the box on the bottom, in the back row of stacked boxes), but in the process I found a bunch of things I was either looking for or will need soon (battery charger, camera cable, portable CD player, my favorite cookbook, etc.). But yay for seeing Alphans/Confluence people again!

In semi-related news, attention you writers and artists (which is... almost all the people who read this). I'm on the staff of a new magazine Francesca is starting, and we need submissions. From ANYONE. Stuff you've already written/drawn/whatever, and they don't need to have anything to do with fairies, paganism, or stuff like that (but if they do, that's still cool). Basically the magazine is about community and expression. So go ahead and submit any short stories, articles, artwork, etc., and get published! Yes, that means you. *makes puppy eyes at everyone*

And does anyone know why LJ only likes to put in the first word of LJ cuts? I'm trying to figure it out.

I forgot to mention, the deadline for submissions for the first issue is August 7. Yes, it's soon, but that gives you time to dig up something, riiiiiiiight?

I'm hunting through short shorts I've written and wondering if there are any that DON'T involve eating cheerleaders, zombie kittens, horny chihuahuas, pickle-flavored grasshoppers, and that sort of thing. Yes, half those were written during Tuesday group, and they're quite amusing, but I don't think I'd want to submit them, they're more for the amusement of friends. Although I quite like the piece involving zombie kittens, John Stamos in drag, and a possessed toilet plunger, as did the middle-aged women in the group I read it to. *snickers*

I did find this little gem from a couple years ago (I remember the meeting too - we were writing random words and trading them, and I got Carolyn's. And Emily S. was talking about her roommate's bed tap dancing across the room.):

I Love Tuesday Group

Last week, I was on my way to water the gelatinous lampshade, when I stepped on a frolicking hermit crab. It screamed at me in Swedish, then limped back to the rotunda and curled up in its shell. The lampshade jiggled as I misted it, gurgling as it absorbed the water. The light bulb glowed appreciatively, and the figurehead on the base thanked me.
The bed tap-danced across the room, and my closet devoured the pile of clean laundry on my desk. After taking care of the shade, I ran to comfort the crab. He blew a raspberry at me and scuttled into an empty box of Apple Jacks.
