Author of the Queen City Boys books


Last night perclexed and her sister came over a took most of my houseplants away. It was really sad. My babies!! But I definitely feel good about the home I sent them too. She recently gave up all her plants when she moved out here, so it feels sort of full circle-ish.

Then I spent a whole bunch of time rearranging boxes between the car and the house–bringing empty boxes in and taking full boxes out. I took stuff to my mom’s and will take a bunch more over Friday. You know what feels weird? Putting stuff BACK into your room at your parent’s house. As I was driving home I was thinking how I’m going to be staying there for a few days before I leave and how strange it will be to sleep there surrounded only by the things I’m leaving behind. It made me feel all melancholy.

I leave in almost exactly a month. GAH! Will I ever get everything done? I’m so fucking excited, y’all. (I need icons for this account, happy ones, rage-y ones. I don’t know.)

  1. Again, thank you so much! She was SO excited to have living green things around her again, and you had some groovy pots…she’s just stoked. *beams at you* I truly appreciate it!

    *smooches for you*

  2. i did get your email about the books. and i’m sure it’s all stuff we’d be happy to buy. i suppose this means you don’t want the buffy novels back i borrowed from you four years ago….:D

    hopefully my back will be working again in a couple of days and i can help you out on the book end of things.

  3. p.s.

    i want you to know that i watched the ‘house hunters: nashville’ just for you. all i learned, though, was that nashville has one hip neighborhood that’s already being invaded by yuppies. 😦 so…avoid midtown!

  4. You are making about as drastic a move as a person can make while still remaining in the same country, I’m so excited for you!

  5. So so exciting!!! Best part? I get to see you!!!

    Um, that’s the best part for me, anyway. *g*

  6. Good luck with the move, darling. I’m really impressed with you for doing this.

  7. YAY! I’m glad it worked out that way, I definitely wanted them to go to someone who would love them.

  8. Sometime in the next couple weeks. Maybe we can swing books, then dinner or something?

  9. Re: p.s.

    HEEE! According to “Southern Living” East Nashville is the place to be. I fear anything and everything decent there is being invades by yuppies. It’s the nature of cities. Hip people move to poor places, make them hip, then the yuppies come and all the hip people have to find new poor places to live.

  10. YAY!! I’m excited too. If only all the stressful parts would do themselves!

  11. Yes, it was real reason for moving. So I could spend a bunch of days in car with you. Of course that doesn’t adequately explain why I’m moving AWAY.

  12. Thanks! It will impressive if I get everything packed, etc!
