stella and cod

some really fresh cod and cold Stella last night at Fishbones. A nice little birthday celebration with some Greensboro buddies.

Angie and Jake got me a nice card with a racecar from the salt flats and some Ugly Duckling books. A real nice birthday.

My b-day books from friends:

Fine by Stefanie Marlis (Apogee Press)
Passing World Pictures by Valerie Coulton (Apogee Press)
The Pleasures of C by Edward Smallfield (Apogee Press)

Ten More Poems By Ames Hoff (ugly Duckling Presse)
