There's a meme going around on Livejournal, which I'd been tagged for a gazillion times.

This is what I posted over there:

25 random things about me

Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you (or I think you'll come up with really entertaining things).

(To do this, go to “notes” under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random things, tag 25 people, then click publish.)

1) When I was born, my parents owned an ocelot (well, technically a margay, which are smaller) but they found a new home for it because they were afraid I'd bawl and it would eat me. (All of this in an apartment in New York City.)

2) One of my short stories has been translated into Esperanto (and published!). I've also had books of mine published in Icelandic and Basque translations.

3) My Hebrew name is Yitzhak.

4) I have blown glass.

5) I always wanted to be the next Jacques Cousteau when I grew up. I even started university as a marine biologist, but a mortal allergy to fish made it an impractical career decision, and I switched majors (a few times, actually, before winding up with a degree in English Literature).

Fortune's Lover

Yay! Huzzah!

The printers just delivered the copies of A Midsummer Night's Press' next book, FORTUNE'S LOVER: A BOOK OF TAROT POEMS, by Rachel Pollack!

They really did a great rush job when the other printer left me in the lurch, managing to get me books in less than a week, so that I can pack them (now) and schlepp them with me to the US. (A Midsummer Night's Press is exhibiting at AWP in Chicago next week.)

The book is available now directly from us (www.amidsummernightspress.com) although it won't hit regular distribution channels (or even Amazon) until closer to the offical pub date of May.

I am so relieved to have these boxes of bookses in my possession.
