I would like to take this opportunity to point out how dumb we are


You guys! We didn't write an author letter to Elizabeth Crane! Let's do it now(ish)! It will make us happy!

Doesn't she teach at the Art Institute? I'm against writing letters or anything for people who might actually read them. Isn't the whole point of letters that the person on the other end is probably annoyed with you and doesn't care? OK, maybe not. I feel a religious hallucination coming on. Kathy!

No, I like it when they actually read them. Like Wayne Koestenbaum. We will still be delightfully irreverant, and she will like us nonetheless.

Did you know that Jenny Boully took a class from Wayne Koestenbaum? She thanks him in her book of awesome "essays". She thanks someone like every page. That is a high word count of gratitude, especially for a poet.

i have to think about what to say to elizabeth crane. i will think about it.

Kathy said...

does elizabeth crane really teach at SAIC?

Sarah said...

I think so. I think she teaches at like three local places.

Megan said...

i am having letter-block! this never happens. i think this is because i've seen elizabeth crane in person. and also because she is already wacky. what could we say that would shock her? it will be like a normal letter to her...somebody else start the letter...somebody inspire me. i nominate missy.

Sarah said...

I nominate Missy, too. I also have letter-block.

Megan said...

dear elizabeth crane, do you love the dunkel as much as missy does?

Megan said...

missy accepts her nomination, but she is actually working at work. wtf?

also i told missy she was nominated, then i immediately started telling her what she should write. i am a jerk. i am also a secret control freak. i would tell the whole universe what to write if i could.

anyway we shall await her own unique brilliance.
