Foot Saga

So last December, I injured my right foot. It’s a stupid story; basically, I was coming in from taking out the trash, and I moved to block the cat from trying to get out the door, slipped on the threshold, and hurt my foot. It was evening, we propped my leg up and iced my…

What’s So Good About It?

I woke up this morning with an acute case of vertigo. It had been a long time since I suffered a bout. I had my first taste of it in April 2000, while doing work study at the Graduate Studies office at Emerson College. Not long after arriving, I became so dizzy I could no…

I Need to Hear from You

Because I hadn’t heard from them, either. So . . . There are a number of expectations put on authors these days. Primarily, these expectations boil…

Random Fact

Here’s a random fact about me: I hate the smell of certain cereals. Honey Nut Cheerios, Lucky Charms, basically oat cereals—I can’t stand the way they smell. I’m fine with the fruity cereals like Froot Loops, I guess because the fruit smell covers the oat smell? Corn Pops or Flakes and those kinds of cereals…
