This month's Writers With Drinks will be extra special because we're
offering free dialysis in the women's bathroom. We borrowed a dialysis
machine from St. Mary's Hospital, and we've converted the hot-air hand dryer
into a power source for it. This is the latest generation of dialysis
machines, meaning we can filter *anything* out of your blood! If your blood
is teeming with lustful thoughts after hearing Fetish Diva Midori read from
Wild Side Sex, we can remove those elements completely! If Terry Bisson's
science fiction stirs your blood, stop by the women's bathroom and we will
un-stir it! It's completely scientific! We can make you as anemic as you
need to be. We can also add things to your blood, including aromatherapy
elements -- so when you bleed it will smell like lavender or sandalwood. You
will be popular!
Date: Saturday, December 10, 2005, 7:30 to 9:30 PM, doors open at 7:00 PM
