Crazy times

I’ve been gone a long time. I haven’t been at the computer much unless it was at work and well, I was doing work then. Sometimes I was being a Cindylu groupie, but most of the time it was work. I’m in the midst of writing a paper…in Spanish. It’s killing me. This class has been the most challenging for me, but I like it. I hope I do well. I also hope my sis doesn’t read this until after she’s done grading my terrible paper.

Lots of things have been going on in my life. Some of them are great and some of them are not great, but I don’t have time to write about them right now. Once I finish all this finals drama, I promise I will post a real entry and I will talk about all of it.

In the meantime, I just met Alicia Gaspar de Alba. I’m going to her reading tonight. She was so nice, nicer than some authors that come through here. She seemed genuinely interested in knowing everyone’s name and we were able to chit chat with her about her novel and the process and all that stuff. Anyway, if you can, I highly recommend Desert Blood. I couldn’t put it down.

I heard great things about Desert Blood. I'd read it if I wasn't already incredibly swamped with stuff.

Hopefully when you're unswaped you can read it. I think you'll really like it.

Desert Blood is really great! I bought it on a friday afternoon and finished it late Saturday night, and in the meantime I was at a conference attending panels, caucus meetings, and business meetings. :)

Alicia is a great writer! I lover her book of short stories (The Mystery of Survival) and her first novel (Sor Juana's Second Dream).
