shaggy dog story that's all the hairier for being true from the genius behind the curtain at The East Village inky
- Dear Friends of The East Village Inky
Thanks for your patience! The July Inky, henceforth to be known as the
August Inky got shuttled to a back burner when I realized the fall
deadline for my new book meant sept 1, not november 4, the date I'd
randomly lit upon because the leaves were red when we got married.
Mailed the completed originals back to their Manhattan printer, but
then the printer was on vacation and he must have had a good time
because he printed it inside out. actually, it made me feel good, like
maybe I'm not the only one... And when I apologized for any
miscommunications on my end leading to the waste of a tree, he told me
that his papers made from eucalyptus which 'grows like weeds' ... which
sounds about suspiciously like my habit of classifying fish as
vegetables. Anyhoo, he says I can expect a big old box of them printed
outside out on Monday and if there's breath in my body, and I'm home
when the UPS man rings, I'll staple those suckers up and get em out the
door before Little Momo and I scamper off down mexico way. so they're
coming! they're coming! but boy howdy are they late.
Is everybody having a nice summer?
Oh, and while you're lacking for your regular reading material, why not
pick up a copy of Bitch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture. I've got a
little story in there that will probably make you reconsider ever
hiring me to give you a massage, but more than that, it's one of the
worthiest rags I know, and more than deserving of your support!
Dare to Be Heinie!
