AWESOME! All you guys reading together? It would be disingenuous of me to miss this reading. But my question for the universe is this: How does it happen that all the cool stuff I want to do is going on in the SAME WEEKEND?

the universe is a mysterious place, though I planned the three of us reading together myself. Fun times! glad to see you'll be there...

That Geoff Herbach sounds very interesting.

Herbach said...

I'm not related to that Geoff Herbach, I swear.

Blogagaard said...

Hmmm...I've got to say I'm a bit suspicious about that.

What if I'm not just joking, but prophetic? What if this is a watershed reading for all five of us? A performance that will echo into infinity? They will call us the Hamline Five, and everything we ever write again will be pure gold....

Oh! Can you set up a live feed to Duluth? Kind of like watching Olaf commencement in the Science Lecture Hall? Hmmmm??? It would be cool! I could round up some viewers up Nort.
Easily.

We'll get to work on that ASAP

Sadly, a drunken stupor awaits me in St. Louis so I will have to miss the reading. Dangit!
