i love it. i had a student who kept referring to you as octavio de la paz. this must mean you have a great poet name. thank you also for sending me furious lullaby. it's a beautiful book.

OMG. That is hilarious... Well, not really, but kind of...

Hee! Hee!

I thought it was funny, though SIU didn't. Anyway, at least they didn't call me Oscar de la Hoya who's now embroiled in this controversy.

Can I put "Nobel Laureate" in my vita now?

Ooo, I can't wait to read Furious Lullaby. I'll go order it now.

I think you should claim "Nobel Laureate" -- too funny.

Oliver de la Paz said...

Hey thanks, BJ and Deborah.

I wonder if a Nobel Laureate would get me tenure. . .

Oscar de la Renta. That's the next step.

um, the oscar de la hoya pics are creeping me out. my sister thinks he was drugged and bribed by a hooker ... but that's just what my sister thinks.
