Last night I received the NORTHERN CALIFORNIA INDEPENDENT BOOKSELLERS ASSOCIATION OUTSTANDING HANDSELLING AWARD FOR 2007, "for creating 'a poetry section to be reckoned with'," which goes to show people behave unpredictably, buying small press poetry books.

It's a great time for youhood!! That is fucking awesome fucking awesome and a long time coming. There's not a way for me to convey my congrats. Just can't.

And, again, congratulations.
