Hemingway’s Shoes

December 3, 2010

I don’t know how I came across this– oh yes I do, I was procrastinating doing my work– but I love that someone is hawking Hemingway Shoes. Not his actual shoes, unfortunately, but shoes ‘inspired'(?) by Ernest Hemingway. The Ernest Hemingway Collection is made up mostly of loafers… Then of course I looked online for […]

WS Merwin named U.S. Poet Laureate

July 1, 2010

Awesome news. WS Merwin is such a sweet, spiritual man–a Buddhist and Environmentalist– who lives in Hawaii. (pic from Univ. of Arkansas Daily Headlines). And, he’s 82! Today NPR interviewed him (click to listen) for just a couple of minutes and he read this poem, so tiny and beautiful: Separation by W. S. Merwin Your […]

Bears Shaving

January 5, 2009

I just can’t resist this new T-shirt from Threadless. It’s called “Work.” You can buy it here. Language is a cracked kettle on which we beat out tunes for bears to dance to, while all the time we long to move the stars to pity. ~Gustave Flaubert

$5 T-Shirts make a great Christmas present for writers and other folk

December 1, 2008

Look! Even Preston Sturges, famous writer and director, wore T-shirts! Anyway, Threadless is having another sale: $5, $10, and $15 T-shirts. Tons of ’em! $5!! Here are two of my $5 faves: The Scr-Emo and Napoleon (who looks kind of like Adam Ant) The third one is a $10 Tee, still a bargain for Cowboy […]

Happy Birthday Augusten Burroughs

October 23, 2008

Funny. The last two nights when I was driving home at 7pm The Writer’s Almanac on NPR played the same show–which was about Augusten Burroughs (author of Running With Scissors, Dry, A Wolf at the Table…duh). It felt kind of like that movie, Groundhog Day, in fact, I had to check my cell phone to […]

September 15, 2008

aww, man I love this T-shirt from Threadless: It’s called The Average Bear.

I hate it when that happens!

September 8, 2008

But I love this new T-shirt from Threadless: Buy it here.

Back To School Shopping– $9 T-shirts!

August 29, 2008

I remember when my mother would take my sisters and I to do our back to school shopping– at Sears, Gemco, and Mervyns, the epitome of back to school fashion. Thanks Mom! Well, Threadless, which is a little cooler than Sears, is having a back-to-school sale,  and many of the shirts are just $12. I […]

Miss Scarlet, in the hall, with a revolver

April 1, 2008

I can’t believe Threadless is selling T-shirts for only $5. And, I can’t believe that includes one of the Ts i’ve been lusting over. Remember the game Clue, and the fabulously campy movie starring Madeline Kahn, Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry, Leslie Ann Warren, Christopher Lloyd, et al? Uh, yeah, well check out this T-Shirt. Only […]


March 17, 2008

No, that’s not a song from the musical “Rent.” That’s how many words I wrote today! On my Spring Break! (who needs Daytona Beach, eh?) I wrote 12 pages. 12 That’s probably more writing than i’ve done in the last month. I am, as Eduardo puts it: En Fuego. (which I think means on fire?) […]
