He made two Editor's Choices from the poems in the Nov-Dec Star*Line, and "Three Letters to the Prince of Falling Leaves" is one of them.

As a result, the poem will appear online at the SFPA site, http://www.sfpoetry.com/.

ZOMG!!!!

I sold a prose poem, "Three Letters to the Prince of Falling Leaves," to the Star*Line prose poetry volume.

Specifically, I sold it to Bruce Boston, the grandmaster of sf poetry, which is kind of mind-boggling. He said it was a beautiful poem and he invites me to submit "regular poetry" to Star*Line.

...I guess that means I should probably learn how to write some.

I sold the mochi story, "River of Heaven!" OMG! I sold it to "Strange Horizons!!! This is a total shock! I have sold other forms of writing before, but this is my first prose fiction sale!!!

I owe this to [livejournal.com profile] yhlee, who convinced me to buy Wagashi, a gorgeous and expensive illustrated book on traditional Japanese sweets, by telling me to write a story using it as research to recoup the purchase. I also wrote portions of it opposite her in a coffee shop. Yoon, thank you so much!!!!

Wow! Thank you so much to everyone who sent me birthday wishes, and mega-thank you to the awesome crew who gave me certificates for massages and amazon! You guys are fantastic!

Adrian took me to breakfast at the same Taiwanese place across from Din Tai Fung where he got me the taro/red bean cake, and we had a Taiwanese picnic in the Arboretum, where we ended up at a picnic table after repeated attempts to sit on the ground were foiled by ants. We had coffee, sticky rice stuffed with sausage and assorted good stuff, radish cakes with egg, beef rolls, "dragon tails" (crispy unsweetened churro-like things), and "multi-grain rolls" which Adrian unwisely ordered in the hope of being healthy. We fed those to a peacock. Then we went to Huntington Gardens, which was extremely hot but very relaxing.

I am briefly peeking into LJ while he is at a tutoring session, but am now leaving to read L J Smith. We will eat the cake when he returns. Bye!

In my continuing quest to tag all entries anyone could possibly ever want to read again with informative tags, I re-discovered The Tale of the Mud People.

UC Santa Cruz was a trip. It was broken into eight colleges, each with a different academic focus (now ten or more, I believe.) Mine was Porter, the arts college. The sculpture outside of Porter was known as "The Flying IUD." I was several times able to direct people to pick me up merely by telling them the correct road plus "Turn left at the Flying IUD."

Our mascot was the banana slug. They are shy creatures, rarely spotted, native to the California redwood forests which surrounded the school. The administration was against this choice, feeling that a slug, however large and yellow, lacked fighting spirit, and overruled the students' choice to institute the sea lion. The students rebelled, and the slug was once more crowned. I used to have a T-shirt reading "Fiat Slug." ("Let there be slug.") At my graduation, the provost amazed the audience by delivering portions of the commencement speech via ventriloquism with a banana slug puppet.

In case you missed my hyperventilating last night, I met Masi Oka and now have pictures to prove it!!! (In a photo-essay on the WGA rally by the lovely and charming [livejournal.com profile] dawnybee.)

Like she says, I am retrospectively amazed that in a crowd of 4000, two fans on Lj managed to hook up at random. Seriously, I think we only started talking because she, I, and a (also lovely and charming!) actress and her mother all happened to be standing next to each other at the same time, uselessly attempting to peer through the crowd despite us all (except Amber's Mom) being 5'1" or under.

We didn't even figure out that we were both fans until we'd already been wandering around celebrity-spotting, dodging Teamster trucks, and drinking hot cider kindly provided by CAA for at least half an hour. After the rally, we walked about twenty blocks back to where I'd parked, got some coffee, and discussed crazy actors and the allure of MPREG.

[livejournal.com profile] dawnybee, it was so much fun! We must get together again!

[livejournal.com profile] dawnybee's new camera failed to click when it took the photo, so she accidentally took an antire series of Masi and me. Not that I'm complaining.

His shoulder, me looking slightly demented.

What in the world are we doing here? It reminds me of Duo clutching his head for no reason in the Peacemillion cafeteria.

In shadow.

Same as in the photo-essay-- I think this one came out best.
