Got up this morning and went to the writers' workshop. So some more prompts and a few more beginnings of things that will probably be pretty good if I ever finish them...like all the ones so far that I haven't finished! After that, since I was around the corner I figured I'd swing by Heather's bookstore. I thought there was supposed to be a star trek day or something, but I think it's tomorrow. She wasn't even in the shop. I still picked up a book: Bloodchild and Other Stories by Octavia E. Butler. It really stayed with me when Mary Beth read me the title story. Today is the day of the crawfish festival down the street at Overton Square. So we did like we do most years and walked down to it to pick up some crawfish. It's definitely spring. We sat on the back deck where there's no shade and dug up my sun hat. I got down my technique much quicker and better than I usually do. Of course, you twist the tail off at first to get more meat out of the body. Then the other trick I've had trouble with in the past I guess is peeling back the tail's shell with the thumb, getting all or as many segments as possible at once together. Then you can mostly peel it back as if it were hinged. I thought it was a pretty successful strategy. Then what? Then more grocery shopping. Alright! Oh, I should mention that tickets for Memphis Concrète are available for purchase! Not that anyone's really here to read it, but: here's the link anyway.
