I am one of those people for which the word "Novel" is a verb.

Have been thinking about how rough it is to make the word "Novel" a present progressive verb (read: "Noveling").

I wont lie: I'm behind. Really. Nicholas, Davey--I'm sorry.

But mostly I'm sorry to me.

I need a schedule.

And Cake.

What's the point of all this? Well kids, it comes down to "Muses".

While "Cake" is the all important title piece in the collection, "Muses" is the last-all-encompassing-wrap-up-piece. To further complicate matters, it's not just about a bunch of fuck-ups I dated (read: fucked), but rather about people I really care about. Like Mathisen. And Hodson. And Samantha (BONE PHONE!).

Samantha says:
You forget the other side of the equasion, M.I.Randa. Or maybe you just don't write it down... I've been thinking about this since I saw your face when we were talking about Ian and I the other day.

I'm wondering if I get cake, or if I get a curse. I love you more than anyone, and I want a man in my life to love too (oh, and also, to observe the bone sabbath with). I'm still trying to figure out how to have both at the same time. Maybe it can't work to have both in the same city (for now) but sacrificing time with either one of you to live in the city with the other one is crazy.

Do I get to have cake and eat it too? I'm wondering if I actually get to have cake, or if I'm stuck in the cake shop window looking back and forth between two different cakes and can't have both the way I want them.

Maybe I should hook up with Betty Crocker, at least for a one night stand.

Oh, and also, I'm sorry for puking in your bed on the bone sabbath. That was a major deflation of the bone.

There are all kinds of Cake in this world, but are they limited? Meaning--do we have to pick just one?

Shouldn't our Muses and our Cake be one in the same? Can we love and fuck at the same time?

p.s.--Pics and wrap up of Sam's trip to SF to follow. Daved Hodson, expect an e-mail. Thanks for calling this morning. Don't die in a hurricane. No day but today.

Can't we just add Bone Phone to the twins list just because?
Because, um, we both... um, I don't know,


Okay, I guess not.
