is to Cream City Review. Whew; I did it. One day off and I have to start another week. It really freaked me out that a process which is starting to get much easier for me, on the whole, became suddenly so challenging from Tues - Thurs. I kept running into stupid barriers. Like I would research the journal and find stuff of mine that seemed to fit their vibe, and then I’d click on the subs page and the reading period would be from Sept - Dec. Or I would research the journal etc. etc. and they would have a no sim subs policy + an 8 month response time. Come on people! It got so painful to sit in front of computer b/c of back. I start PT for back on Monday. I am nonplussed.
Is that word one of those like cleave that mean the opposite thing at the same time? I should really look that up. Lazy writer. Lazy.
Why isn’t there a journal called Cleave? I googled cleave magazine and came up with nothing except a youtube video about some chick with huge those-can’t-be-real tits. Boring. Bad pun. No cookie.
I’ve been behind on my journal subs this week since I haven’t been feeling so well. I caught up (mostly) today by sending to Eleven Eleven, kill author, and La Petite Zine. I need one more tomorrow and I’ll be caught up for the week.
… right now my one cat, the grumpy old man on a diet, is yowling for his dinner which isn’t due for another hour. And I would like to shove him in a burlap sack. And tie the sack up really tight. And then when the bus stops outside my house (there is a bus stop outside my house), run onto the bus, drop the sack, and run back into my house.
Back spasms so consistently bad (three weeks woo!) that I have finally broken down and tried to make appt with PT place. Except they were (very nicely) like, “You need a script for that.” So now I gotta go two places I don’t wanna go. Except they will help me get better or at least back on track. Thinking about checking out new fibro facility that mixes traditional with holistic therapies. Still has name of large hospital attached to it so the wonk factor (we’ll give you 50 dubiously helpful algae supplements and take your $1000) is lowered. I am TRYING to keep a positive ATTITUDE. Motherfuckers. Now I am going to skulk off crankily.
Back pain, not quite as bad. Brain pain, still bad.
