This pretty much sums up how I’m feeling right now.  This cold is still kicking my butt, but in the last twenty-four hours, I’ve managed to finish that story for Miss Tadpole (and she liked it so much, she took it to school to show off), fix a bunch of track changes issues in stories I’d submitted for an anthology (and learned how to use track changes correctly in the process), start reviewing a short story for someone (Oh, hello, track changes, how are you today?), and process two tax returns at work.

*scarfs chocolate miraculously left over from yesterday*

Of course, these are quite fitting for today’s mental state as well:

Our local coffee shop has the best décor.  Of course, I probably only think that because it happens to be true.

On second thought, no I don’t.  It’s awesome regardless of its truth.

*passes out*

I’ve got a guest!

Today I’m happy to have a poem by the lovely Tokoni O. Uti, a fellow poet from just across the way:

And here’s Tokoni to tell us a little more about herself:

I am a Nigerian Student and Poet. I grew up in Lagos and began writing when I was 11. I am currently a student at Bowen University, Iwo, Nigeria. I have been published on the Huffington Post, San Diego Free Press, S Magazine, Op-Ed News, Space Bar Magazine, The Brooklyn Reader, Collective Lifestyle Media and the Portsmouth Daily Times.

You can find more of her great poetry and other things over on her blog, Beautiful Insanity.  Stop by and look around, yeah?  She’s got some neat things on display.
