WEATHER: it is a sweltering 45 degrees as we speak! break out the sun block! snow and slush gave way to freezing rain last night as i was holding my breath throughout the car ride home.
CURRENT EVENTS: transit strike delayed till tuesday. came this close to sleeping over at work and they dont even come through on their threat. or maybe they did, my normal 70 min commute took almost three hours today. even worse than having to deal with that is havin to deal with the resident loud mouth who insists on yelling at the public service announcement speaker.
we are currently experiencing delays…

LITERARY: following up a wonderful week where i got to check out nick carbó read; saw the BEST worst attended reading ever: the kenneth rexroth tribute with suheir hammad, jessica hagedorn, patrick rosal & bob holman (among others) reading; and one of my favorite poetry couples, jai & elana rock out at the bronx council reading, i have attended ZERO readings this week. so it goes.
