Dangit, I missed the IV Lounge reading series last night. I always mean to go, and I almost always miss it. Instead, I made the mistake of going to Winners, and Winners, as usual, exhausted and defeated me, so I had to go home. They were playing Christmas music at Winners. I needed to buy gloves because it is getting cold out. It took me about an hour and a half; cost a weeny piece of my soul.

And yet I know I will return to Winners.

Anyhoo! Go here for upcoming IV goodness: http://www.alexboyd.com/ivloun...

Meanwhile, there's always This Aint the Rosedale Library. (I always get events at This Aint the Rosedale mixed up with This is Not a Reading Series. There are too many literary-type things in this town describing themselves in the negative. It is quintessentially Canadian. Canadians are not Americans. Toronto is not New York. The rest of Canada is not Toronto. Now I must go listen to Definitely Not the Opera.)

Where was I. Two upcoming events at This Aint, courtesy, once again, of Patchy:

GIVES A TALK: Parallel Poetry and Beat Blessings

"Like Beethoven's Bagatelles, Simon Pettet's short poems have a great deal to say, and their seemingly modest dimensions help rather than hinder his saying it. An unorthodox lucidity reminiscent of Schuyler, a certain English dappleness and an oriental concision blend in poetry whose sweet, complex fragrance is Pettet's secret." - John Ashbery
