Stillmo tit-bits

1. As my last post indicated, I will be doing a reading (Saturday night the 19th of February, 8:00PM, Quimby's Queer Store [1854 W. North Avenue, Chicago], Sanitary and Ship release party sponsored by Diatribe Media, featuring me and others. Be there!) Saturday night. This means, unfortunately, that I will be unable to do the SUPER SECRET SURPRISE YOWIE TOTALLY BLOW EVERYONE'S MIND thing I was going to do on Saturday, which was to drive twelve fucking hours all the way to Philadelphia for the sole purpose of saying goodbye to Paris-bound manningkrull and tamisevens, then getting back in the car and driving twelve fucking hours back. You have to admit, the idea has an insane appeal, to drive for two days for the sake of two hours at a party for people I only met once, but alas, time, money, and scheduling conflicts are gonna make it a no-go. Which is too bad, because I would have liked to see the look of shock (and aaaaaw) on Manning's face when I showed up. And also the look of non-shock on the faces of the hundred other people at the party who have no goddamn idea who I am, and don't care.

2. This one is for my gal ninafarina. I didn't know so I looked it up: a "pidgin" is a simplified speech used for communication between people with different languages. A "creole" is a a language that has evolved from a pidgin, but since then has come to function as the actual native language of a speech community. So now you know. And rest easier for it, I'm sure, because I imagine you stayed up all night wondering last night. (Note to people who are not ninafarina: I'm not saying that my gal and I prefer our pillow talk to be peppered with linguistic theory. But I'm not saying we don't, either.)

3. My beloved Phoenix Suns are in first place, not in their division, but in the entire NBA. Can this be a sign of a pending apocalypse? Might a team I like actually win something someday? Is it possible that my heart could take a repeat of the soul-crushing 1992-1993 seasons, where the greatest-ever Barkley Suns suffered defeat at the hands of the hated Jordan Bulls? Do I sound like a really bad promo spot for SportsCentury?
