Do you like the type treatment? Yeh, I did it myself

So in tha last 6 minutes I fell completely head over heels in L.O.V.E. with Travs Barks. OmFg. WaTcH tHiS aNd So WiLl YoU.

Hot, right? Maybe I'm just missing my boys... I have not been my usual self ... cause Travis Barker? Douche or un-douche? Whatever, I'm lonely.

In other words, some guy contacted me about reviewing John Edgar Wideman's newest novel on this 'er blog. At first I thought it was a scam to get my address (he's mailing me a copy to read) but then he invited me to Wideman's book reading. Well if I'm found dead* you know who did it: Andy Heidel from Houghton Mifflin

Housing Works @ 7pm Harper's Magazine presents Wideman reading from and discussing his new novel, FANON (Houghton Mifflin). The reading will be followed by a reception and book signing.

*Last night I had a crazy paranoia while riding the the train home. Some drunk guy was inching his way closer to me while grabbing something in his pocket. All I could think was he was readying himself to stab me on top the head with a knife. Like I'd then live for a 1 minute or 2 in complete dumbfounded "I just got stabbed in the head" ness. Then I prepared myself for what I could say to those around me. I thought of this, tell my family I love them. Tell Ken, Shawn, and David I will marry them. And tell David, "I beat you, ha!". All the while saying this, my voice would be very raspy and short of breath because I am not very sure that a person could even talk after getting a knife plunged deep into the skull.

All in all I'm excited for Fanon. And mitch:

Travis never ceases to amaze with his level of bad taste. I need to get that jam for my Worst Music Ever night. The kids will love it.
