Clevelandese

Had a great time at the John Gallaher et al reading last night, and post-reading sangria sipping. Doesn't John look intimidating in this photo? I mean, his head is almost touching the ceiling, and his shirt says genius.


Sara Tracey and I were delighted to welcome the whole crew--plus new Clevelander Michael Dumanis--to Northeast Ohio, like the little blogbassadors that we are. Somehow Kevin Prufer escaped this picture. I'm making a secret Northeast Ohio hand signal that means "Where's Kevin Prufer?"

Oh yes, and I did get to see John Gallaher's tattoo, which was very cool.

Here's who was waiting for me at home, among others.

So cute! I was hoping for a pic of the tatoo, though...

I thought about it, but didn't want to let the cat out of the bag (though it's not a cat...honest).

God! When I read "cat out of the bag" I right away thought, "He has a Hello Kitty tat!" Ha! Thank God for parentheses. ;)

Reading about Mac's and seeing poets together really makes me wish we were closer to C-town and Akron...

I think I look like Lee Harvey Oswald getting shot in this picture. Either that, or Joe Cocker.

Oh well. It was still a great time.

PS. Where's the picture of your tattoo, by the way?
