Nic Sebastian said...

Go, you! Fifty million times over!

Tricia said...

I am wigging right now

Whimsy said...

That is fan-f*cking-tastic, Trish. Just fabulous.

Whimsy said...

Wait,wait,wait.

Just wondering. Did you get the acceptance BEFORE or AFTER your bikini shots?

Harry said...

Nice one.

Tricia said...

T'anks Harry!

Jeff--it was AFTER! Do you think they worked a magic?

mariegauthier said...

Wow! Congratulations, that's awesome. I felt giddy just reading that, I can't imagine how you must feel!

Tricia said...

Well I took two Benadryl last night so I mostly felt groggy and like it was maybe part of a vivid diphenhydramine dream

Sandy Longhorn said...

How awesome! Love, love, love the title of this post.

Tricia said...

It's the kind of metaphor I'm best at, ones involving fat babies

I heard that POETRY is seeking to up their circulation with poet centerfolds and their poems. You are sure to dominate the magazine for years to come! I am springy with joy for you!

WV: whang. Coincidence?

Tricia said...

Blogger's word verifications are never a coincidence, they are positively psychic these days

Radish King said...

All day I've been walking around saying goddamn goddamn goddamn the way you say it when something really spectacularly good happens if you're a potty mouth. Goddamn girl I say it's about time. I always believed in my black little heart that the cream will rise to the top and now it has and I love Poetry and might even get me a subscription just because of this because they finally showed some moxie and intelligence and I'm just so goddamned happy for you I'm twirling and cursing to beat the band.
love,
Rebecca






I would like to claim to have been one of the first to recognize your genius but I bet Whimsy beat me to the punch. Goddamn.



Seriously. I can't help myself. This makes me happier than cake and Jesus put together.

Tricia said...

Come here, come here Rebecca

I'M GOING TO KISS YOU ON THE MOUTH

ron hardy said...

I am doing the Snoopy dance for you Tricia. Good for you girl.

Tricia said...

Bless you my son

Okay. What's with the Tuscan Whole Milk? Are there other products the secret poet society has secretly agreed to mock, leaving the non-poets slack-jawed with their ignorance of the sniggering laughter all around them? How does one get in the loop?

SarahJane said...

Marvelous. & you will be PAID!

Tricia said...

Tuscan Whole Milk is just an old meme--a bunch of internet people all got together to write satiric milk reviews on Amazon like five years ago. At one point they drove the price up to $2500, it was very expensive milk for a while. Try browsing the Amazon WTF tag some time!

Sarah Jane, have you friended Scrooge McDuck on Facebook yet? It is a must if you like money

SarahJane said...

well, thanks to you I dang well might subscribe to POETRY again.
Is "Double Rainbow Across the Sky" the name of your poem? If it isn't I think you should change it.

ron hardy said...

Well double dang it. me too. Again

Tricia said...

No but the real title is full of colors in its way!

There are good Matthew Zapruder and David Shapiro poems in the current issue, plus a review of Robert Hass from Michael Robbins that made me actually laugh out loud. I THINK it's the same Michael Robbins who had Alien vs. Predator in the New Yorker last year, that would make sense

I usually read it in the bookstore and then decide whether to buy it or not

Valerie Loveland said...

Tricia! That's wonderful!

Tricia said...

It's psychotic is what it is

rkm said...

didn't you used to talk shit on POETRY, like, all the damn time?

Tricia said...

?

theotheradamford said...

you should stop. right now. or no wait. keep going. keep going like the wind! of poetry writing people!

yay for you.

Tricia said...

I have already stopped, a machine is doing it now

theotheradamford said...

"a machine is doing it now".

that's poetry!
