Went to a reading at McNally-Robinson tonight. Was there to see my friend Anthony read from his swell book, but also enjoyed hearing Idra Novey's translations of this fella's poetry. She even read a few in the original Portuguese, a language I could listen to all day even if I didn't understand a word of it.
One of the few times I ever really wanted a camera phone happened today when I passed the pet store downstairs and saw that they have 7 new beagle puppies no bigger than your hand (if you have kinda large-ish hands).
Words cannot do these floppy-eared aliens justice--they are so cute it makes my eyes water. And they have been installed with all the requisite puppy features: they gambol about, their ears all a-flounce, in the shredded newspaper like it's their job.
They pretty much look like this, only tinier.
