It's been a week

and I still haven't stopped grinning like a fool.

University of Iowa called to "invite" me to do my MFA at their fine, fine school.

Holy.
Holy.
Smokes.

Congratulation are SO due! MFA is such a funny acronym, so many possibilities. Does this mean you'll have to do some traveling down to Iowa? I wonder how far that is from me. Best of luck, Friend!

Way to go!! I'm excited; I'm toasting you with chocolate chips! Will this be a low residency program? Will you move there? Will you meet people from the U of Iowa Press? Details, woman!

Shut up!!! Shut up. Shut up! Seriously?

That's the hugest of all huges. Very, very well deserved, friend. You can't beat that with a stick.

does this mean they're paying for it, too? did you apply, or did they just hear about you?

WOOT.

Found you by way of your snarky Burnside comment (which I liked and had kind of been wondering about myself-making fun of a writer in a group full of writers when we all secretly fear we suck--or maybe that's just me). I've been browsing through the site and just wanted to post a comment to tell you that I like your writing, and I'm excited about your good news. It's awesome. I'm jealous. :-)
