Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?

Luville
I just checked into to my hotel in Louisville, where I'll be attending the Conference Formerly Known as Twentieth Century Literature over the next few days. So far, I've only seen the airport and the low-budget strip to its south where my motel is located. My non-smoking room seems to have fallen off the wagon. And I'm dead tired from going to bed at 3:15am and getting up just an hour later. For all that, though, I'm as happy as I can hope to be these days. I got a ton of writing -- by hand -- done on the plane and in the airport, I had an extended conversation with the woman at the Hertz counter here about postmodern literature, I have fast, free wireless and, most importantly, I'm going to head out shortly for dinner at Lynn's Paradise Café, after which I will make my annual pilgrimage to Ear-X-Tacy. Did I mention that it's supposed to snow? I love it here.

Hey my friends are there! You know I almost submitted for this conference, have a great time!

I hope they weren't presenting today, then. No conference! I wonder what will happen tomorrow. Maybe they'll double up sessions or something crazy like that.

I'm glad Kentucky seems to keep treating you well. Good luck with the conference! Is it now known only by a symbol and an acronym starting in CFK?

Ha. Yes, it's the "Louisville Conference" now, given that some of the literature -- including Austerlitz, which I'll be mentioning -- is from the twenty-first century. Not so sure about the treating well today, though. Being stuck in a motel like this is hard. And the Indian proprietors won't share their delicious-smelling samosas, even though I keep hinting that I'm desperately hungry.

Yay Austerlitz. Sorry to hear about the ice storm. I don't know if I could ever get used to winters like that.

But no samosas? That just seems heartless. I wish I could send something more than warm wishes your way.

Heartless. Precisely!

You may have to get used to winters like that, what with global warming and all. . .

:-)

Ummmm. I guess I'm guilty as charged. Hell, I even know where both Georgias are!

Ear-X-Tacy!

One of the true gems of Louisville. Unfortunately, it looks like you're getting some of the K-Y's finest winter weather to go with it. Still, enjoy the conference! --jm

Re: Ear-X-Tacy!

Cancelled today, alas. I better be able to give my paper tomorrow, or I will be very unhappy. Or at least a little unhappy.

As previously noted, nice to hear from you.
