“All Afternoon Those Birds Twitter Twit”

  • 07:58 is on page 14 of 192 of Break It Down: Stories by Lydia Davis. More emotional arc in "The Fears of Mrs. Orlando" than story arc. 4* #
  • 08:06 Actually *excited* to be going to the Farmer’s Market today! Gonna bring a real camera this time, too. And then I’ll hide indoors & write. #
  • 08:21 Almost forgot: You’ll like WRISTCUTTERS: A LOVE STORY if you liked Keret’s novella, even with the different (happier) ending. #
  • 11:20 No livetweeting from the Farmer’s Market ‘cos I was too busy taking pictures to use as character fodder in future stories :). #
  • 11:21 Scored myself some new "licensed by Birkenstock" sandals at the local annual truckload sale. WTH, it only comes around once/year. #
  • 11:28 Best thing about Twitter: getting a non-bot Direct Msg from one of my favorite authors! #squee #
  • 12:20 Haven’t heard "Valerie Loves Me" in, what, 15 years? ♫ blip.fm/~4ydgu #
  • 12:58 Tried to read/write while stuck inside. Just not happening. Netbook’s charged up, so back out I go. #
  • 13:40 Downtown is abuzz with activity including, unfortunately, some band that sucks really, really hard. #
  • 13:50 I refuse to let this incredibly sucktastic band drive me indoors! #
  • 14:05 If I’d have let the sucktastic band drive me indoors, I’d have missed out on this awesome acapella gospel group. #
  • 16:53 Trying to rewrite a section over and over? Just cut it & see if you can do without it. It worked for me yet again! #wip #
  • 16:56 Gonna type corrected draft and put it to bed for a bit. Then I can get to those 3 stories I still have to rewrite. #wip #
  • 17:32 is on page 20 of 192 of Break It Down: Stories by Lydia Davis. All I can say about "Liminal: The Little Man" is that it’s over my head. 4* #
  • 17:34 is on page 31 of 192 of Break It Down: Stories by Lydia Davis. "Break It Down" was almost too vivid & gutwrenching. 5* #
  • 17:39 twitpic.com/3zs00 – Would I be a jerk if I got a boat, parked in the next slip, & christened it "The GMO?" #
  • 17:42 twitpic.com/3zsb2 – From this morning’s regatta, viewable from the Farmer’s Market. #
  • 22:14 Why, oh, why have I never seen RUSHMORE before? #
  • 22:42 Forgot how cool Owen Wilson (co-writer of RUSHMORE) was, once upon a time. #
