Brief update

I'm taking a moment out of self-imposed blogging cessation (outside of the occasional coyote, vanity plate, etc. post that really doesn't take any significant amount of time to do) for a quick update. I've added another friend's blog to my bloglist: Erica's Cross Currents. Since I also have a self-imposed cessation of reading blogs, I haven't actually read very much of it. But from a quick scan it definitely seems worthwhile. Erica is a friend from the myHusbandBetty boards and even IRL occasionally--like last night, when I ran into her at a bar.

I was there after the NYC Stonewall Democrats Cocktail Party-Reception-21st Anniversary Party-Fundraiser-Annual Awards event. It was very nice. I managed not to be too late despite having to make an emergency run (almost literally) to a shoestore because I had forgotten to make sure my shoes were in my suitcase when I went to CDI to change. (Fortunately there's a Payless just a block from the CDI apartment, and I was actually able to find a nice pair of white platform wedges (the platform-wedge being fake cork) that are quite comfortable.) The speeches were relatively short (I think they got a lot of criticism about last year's event), the food and drinks were quite satisfactory in quality and quantity, and I got to talk to some people that I hadn't seen in a while.

What else is new? I have now surpassed 200 friends on MySpace--I've added a bunch of rock groups, to go along with my assortment of dead composer "friends." I found a cousin of mine whom I haven't seen in 40+ years and called him up (thank you Google).

Now I've got to get back to work on the CDI website.
