reading blogs has inspired me to make a blog post for the first time in a while.

Ron Silliman discusses the levels of greatness a literary blogger can achieve.

Here is an example of my favorite poetry being written right now probably.

I shrunk the number of unread items in my Google Reader from 868 to something like 271.

I feel like I learn things from looking at Brock's blog. It is a kind of unconscious learning. I just go there and look at the images and somehow feel smarter.

In the last ten days I have won $825 in online poker.

Here are people I will finally get to meet or be reunited with at AWP in Chicago in three weeks: Maurice "Alex" Burford, Gina Myers, K. Silem Mohammad, Gabe, Mike Hauser, Karl Saffran (does not have blog), Marie Larson, and many others!

What if I gave people my facebook password and let them do whatever they wanted to my facebook page?

This blogging episode has revealed my true mediocrity. I am an unmotivated, boring lump of flesh.

Happy new year.

Hey Baumann, cheer up or I will.... whatever, if you are unmotivated, I guess negative reinforcement won't work.... just cheer up man, we can't afford to lose folks in our industry, what with Twilight dominating the bookshelves, the rest of us have to stick together.

Well I miss having your class, but I hope your class is going well sir, and I hope to see you around sometime.
