Happy Birthday B-Dawg

Not many followers are making comments on here as of late??? Did I get to risque for some of you? Oh well life is too short to be a good girl 100% of the time...

Today is Bryan Borland's Birthday, so I wanted to give him a shout out!

I also had the opportunity to read from his first Sibling Rivalry Press Chapbook-

Fag Hag – A Scandalous Chapbook of Fabulously-Codependent Poetry is perpetually single and ready to mingle. Help a sista out. Let her rest her head on your bookshelf.

The college crowd was a great venue to read my poem 'Side Order', what it might be like to be a Fag Hag, something I never had the privilege of being- the video is a bit dark, makes me look slim, as I do lately, but hey it fits the mood of what I wrote! I must say the other poets far out do my work, and are all wonderful poets. If you get a chance to go over to his site and then link up with the others, please do. I have been blessed to meet such great people over the past six months or so, and am learning from all of them!

Now I do have to say 'Thanks' to Tom the manager of Alchemist & Barrister in Princeton, because he NEVER lets anyone read poetry NEVER, and he let me, and I have a sneaky feeling he regretted that once he heard a few words in the poem- Love ya Tom! Yep, I have a wild streak now and then, but most of the time I am a really GOOD Girl *wink*...

I could not hear the poem for all the noise in the crowd. Sorry!
I wouldn't take the comment thing personally. Most everyone is on vacation..... but you do know that if your honest about certain things your followers will vaporize. Just sayin'....

Hey there Elizabeth...the boys all 3 of them have capped our internet & new hours don't begin till tomorrow.. the first of the month. So unfortunately I wasn't able to watch the video yet. Will do tomorrow. I haven't been all that active on the internet due to the business of life & am catching up on some reading today. Hope all is well! Cheers Kath

Hi, I havent been blogging much recently which is why I haven't stopped by. Barrys (An Explorers View of Life) death has made me re-evaluate my situation so I will be back.

Go girl! You're making a thousand opportunities for yourself and I love it :)

at least you weren't like the guy who brought out the d word (a "personal" hygiene product lets say) when there was six year old in the audience!

and yeah, commenting is down right now. i think a lot of people are trying, as farmlady said, to get in last minute vacations before school starts back :)
