LOOK! I went to SIBA. It’s the Southeastern Indie Bookstore Alliance Tradeshow. SUPER FUN and I dressed correctly. I know because I am dressed JUST like an awesome handseller from a store I love in Athens — Avid.
This is the only outfit I wore at SIBA that I did not get THRIFTING, and I have no pics of me in either of the 6 dollar skirts I wore with various V neck black knit tops. If you were at SIBA and got a pic of me in my skirts, put it on my facebook wall???? PLEASE? Even if I have the crazy google eye. It’s fine. I always have the crazy eye to some degree or ‘nother. I am having it RIGHT NOW.
Home now, running in mud, trying to get ready for this book launch. It’s in about 6 weeks. That’s about 9 minutes in human lady person time.
I wish I was on dog time. 6 weeks is AT LEAST is 34 minutes in dog time, and you get to use 90% of the minutes for napping and squander the rest counter surfing and plotting squirrel murder. Plus many of the things I need to do before SELS launches are technologically complicated and WAY above my pay grade. Here is an example:
I need to MERGE my personal and author facebooks into a single facebook, but I can’t get the VAST majority of my friends to admit they LIKE me by clicking the like button. There is this backwards thing happening where the more deeply I know a person in actual life, the LESS likely they are to like me. *I pause so that you may insert your own joke about how this is probably because I am a tool *
It is a particularly internet-sian dissonance: My friends do not like me on facebook, and yet we are publicly declared to be FRIENDS on the same medium. Logic dictates that if one has a friend, then the friend likes one, or else it would not be one’s friend.
Most of my friends do not care much for Logic.
I don’t seem to have like-buttoned Logic myself. Logic eats strange cheeses and has such a heavy accent I can’t follow a dern thing Logic says, which is Morisettishly ironic because Logic also dictates that my friends and I should have some things in common— clearly one of them is that none of us use LOGIC much.
The enemy of Logic is my facebook friend, who therefore cannot like me even though they publicly proclaim us friends, because that would be logical and no one here likes THAT.
If you followed the above three paragraphs, we are probably ALREADY facebook friends. And if so, please go LIKE me. Because it’s getting irksome, beloveds—I can’t tell you how often I try to tag a friend in a post but their names won’t light up because I am n the wrong profile and they do not like me.
