Brief Pause

Well, our laptop has bitten the dust, and apparently it will take two weeks for the new one to arrive, so... dearth of posts. Disappointing, since GB:NY4 was last weekend, and such a blast. By the time I have an opportunity to blog about it, it will be SO last month.

Love y'all. See ya later.

Afterthought: BG:NYC and Fleet Week in the same weekend. Coincidence? ...I think not!

No Really! A Fourth! Can you believe it!?

This guy comes to town four years ago, and a yearly event was born. I attended the first three, and the crowd changes slightly every year, but there are a few regulars I'm always looking forward to hugging, and a few new people I'm always glad I met. Bloggers are just fun people. And this particular bunch of boys is pretty fucking hot.

Sadly, the only day I know won't be working is Monday, so I'm hoping to get out to Long Island for Jess and Marc's BBQ. Hey - I might even drive. Who knows? I really hope I don't work Sunday - I'm dying for some Marie's Crisis!

What: Bloggers, Fans and Stalkers Meet and Greet
Where: Therapy on the 2nd floor.
348 West 52nd Street, New York, New York 10019. Phone: 212.397.1700
Time: 9:00pm until whenever we decide to stop

Where: Sheep Meadow (aka Bear Hill) at Central Park
West side, mid-Park from 66th to 69th Streets
Time: 1:00pm
Why: Watch the Roller Disco Skaters, eat lunch, drink and enjoy the sun, weather permitting. (No alcohol, but I hear you may smuggle it in through cleverly designed sprite bottles)

Saturday night alternatives:

The Eagle
Many bloggers could be found at The Eagle on the Rooftop
554 West 28th Street (between 10th & 11th Ave)
Time: 10pm?

Theater Night:
Crash from Crash and Byrne will be going to see Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind at 10:30 PM in the East Village. The tickets are $11-16 each. After the hour long show, he will be going to hit the East Village gay bar(s), probably Urge and Eastern Bloc.

Marie's Crisis
I wanted to make sure I took Brian and Steven to check out New York's infamous piano bar, Marie's Crisis.

Where: The Dugout for the Bear Beer Bust followed by Joe.My.God’s infamous Blarg (Blogger Bar Hop) in Chelsea.
Dugout: 185 Christopher St New York, NY 10014-2815 (212) 242-9113
Time: Meet at The Dugout at 5pm, end at The Eagle Beer Bust by 8pm. Bars would include the Dugout, Gym, View, Rawhide and the Eagle.

A BBQ on Monday (Memorial Day) starting at noon, has been added for those who would like to attend and is being hosted by Marc and Jess. Both are wonderful host and incredible cooks, not to mention great people. Anyone wanting to attend will have to email them to let them know so they have an accurate count of who's coming. If you don't have their email address, please contact me and I will get it for you.

Staci Swears She's Not a Snob

I sort of work with this lovely WASP gal named Staci. I don't know exactly what she does, but I see her at the copier from time to time. We chat idly about things like how crowded New Year's Eve in Aspen has become, and how much we both liked vacationing in Bermuda.

(I've been to each of those places once. She goes once every few years.)

Staci has lived in the Western Connecticut area her whole life. She's my age, blonde, about a size four, and shops at Bloomingdales. She was polite enough once to ask where I was from. I told her about Springfield (Nowhere near Chicago, mostly protestant, lots of country music) and about living in Queens (No, I was never mugged). She seemed sorry she'd asked. She did enjoy hearing about my wedding plans though, and was full of ideas for favors, such as Mikasa crystal candleholders or donations to a charity in the guest's names, or have you seen those mini-cakes that Vosges does?

At the copier today:

Staci: Where's your engagement ring?

Me: uh... in my change purse.

Staci: WHY is it in your change purse!?

Me: Well, I had a client last night. When I massage, I have to take off my ring, so I usually just slip it into my changepurse for safekeeping. I went directly to the spa after work, and then after the massage I went straight home. I was so tired that I went straight to bed, and then this morning when I got up, I was very rushed, so I told myself I'd put it back on when I got to the office. But ever since I got in this morning, I've been so busy, I haven't gotten around to putting it back on.

Staci: So Your Tiffany's platinum-and-diamond ring is still in your changepurse.

Me: Yeah, overnight! (How did she know it was Platinum? Or Tiffany?)

Staci: Hanging out with all those lesser metals!

Me: Ahh... yeah... (nervous laughter)

Staci: Sort of like when you lived in Queens?

Writer's Block

Good LORD I have so much to say, and I can't string five sentences together.

If I can finish the application essay for my job, I'll post that. Supposedly, they're going to make me permanent in a week or so. So I have to get a completed job application in.

That's all I got.
