“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Yeah, that's me. I was reluctant to start facebook, and even more reluctant to start twittering. But after several readers have badgered me about it, I finally signed up for twitter. My twitter name, appropriately, is AdHudler.

I like how twitter only gives you 140 characters to say what you need to say: verbal discipline. Maybe it'll make all of us poets in the end, huh?

I'm off to Macon, Georgia tomorrow where I give the Friday keynote address at the Crossroads Writers Conference. I'm going to read my essay "Tree Bitch," which is forthcoming in the Oxford American. Should be fun because I am staying across the street from the guy you adhudler.com readers will know as papazook. He is a frequent comment contributor to my blog, and, oh gosh, did I fail to mention that HE MAKES THE BEST MARTINI IN THE WORLD!

I'm comin', Papazook! Get those martini glasses in the freezer!

Glasses in the freezer, dry Vermouth in the fridge, but I still need to get good gin. Any preferences?

Looking forward to seeing you sir!

Off topic, but it's time to remove the santa hat from your website photo. You're getting to be like that annoying neighbor who keeps lights up till March and a scraggly, brown wreath on the door.

Is that essay available for public reading? Copies anywhere? It was wonderful.

Or do we have to wait for the book? :-)

Mab: 'Fraid it's not available until it comes out in The Oxford American later this year. I'll post when that happens, however, so you can find a copy. And thanks. I'm glad you liked it.
