I'm at the airport right now. Basically, just hoping my plane is sturdy & safe.
I'm on a panel & reading at the Juniper Festival this weekend. I'll be there both days but doing the panel & reading on Saturday. I hope you are in MA & I can see your face. Show me your face. Please reenact the movie Face/Off. You can be Cage or Travolta. Or both. My favorite part of that movie: the magnetic boots all the prisoners have to wear. And by favorite I mean "most disturbing" and "it's not my fault my brother owned this movie when we were kids." Anyways, info:
