Dieting mit der Soap

Went to the Diet Soap reading tonight. Well, gig, I suppose. I sat with mkhobson and deedop while douglain performed hostly duties. tillyjane and my long lost step-step-step brother S. were there as well. (No, I'm not kidding, and no, I can't explain it either. Maybe tillyjane can. But he's a real sweetheart.) Various music and verbal performances, including me reading "Bird of Leaves", all around a strong anti-consumerist, anti-war theme.

Also popped out 2,100 words on a pirate short story, one of two I'm working on. (This was originally on the slate for this past weekend.) Me and half the rest of the world are doing this. Trying to hit some markets and build some inventory before I dive back into novels for a while.

For those of you in the Portland area, S. is an experienced proofreader looking for local work. (He's done newspaper proofing in the past.) If you've got any leads, or are willing just to chat with him and point him in the right direction, can you drop me a note?
