Hi everyone. First of all, I want to say thank you so much for your patience and support! I’m excited to say we finally have a location for the first U.S. Blogging Event! Please feel free to reblog and/or share on social media. Here it is below:

wp-1490198552232.jpgOur dinner and awards ceremony will be held at Chicago Prime Italian in Schaumburg, Illinois on Saturday Aug. 26, 2017 at 6 p.m. for three to four hours. Depending on traffic, Schaumburg is about 40 minutes away from Chicago using public transportation or a taxi. You may even be able to stay in Schaumburg. We decided on Schaumburg because costs were more reasonable than Chicago. Since there is a deposit to hold the restaurant, I will need a payment of $5.50 from each person who is attending.

 “And this,” she noted suddenly, “has to be one of the dark places of the earth.”

 In the static of their surroundings, the slightly scornful pots, pans, knives and other pointy things lurked, growled their promise, ready to play the food game.

 She doggedly tried to follow the medically suggested diet; the worst that could be said of her was she wanted to believe.

Mangled Beauty

Your surgeon

smiles and you

shiver.

He says he will

remove twenty

years from your

face but he

does not say

to where.

He palpates

your thighs

and finds

little lumps

of flesh.

Cottage. Cheese.

The surgeon

will hack the

cottage cheese

from your thighs

for an extra

thousand dollars.

You hate him for

this, this man

who makes

so much less

for so much

more, but

oh, what can

you do?

You’re more

than a face;

you’re a torso

too.
