The King and I
I cropped me because I am vain and it looks like I have a double-chin in the photo.
Our dear friend, Dave Budrys rocked the bass and sang backing vocals. Scott Carson was whaling on the skins, as per usual. And Bill somehow managed to sound like three guitar players!
Patty's combo platter of being Jailhouse Rockstar skinny, hilarious and witty, with dance moves that would have made Elvis proud and vocal stylings that eerily evoked The King, made for the best Elvis impersonation I've ever seen!
Patty Elvis rules!

I first met Alyssa Gaustad at my old gym, Clay. Her kundalini yoga class was off da hook! Gosh, I miss that gym... Such nice folks... And I swear, the calmest spot in NYC! www.insideclay.com
Anyhow, if you, too, are the type to be intrigued by yoga that's a little different,
check out: universalforceyoga.com
I just went by Alyssa's Wed. 12:15 pm class and it was awesome!

The Jammin' Asian show at the Laugh Lounge went well, I think! I'm a little too fried to do the play by play, but suffice it to say, I had an awesome time and I was very entertained!
Big thanks to Tom, Air, Delilah, Karen, the Laugh Lounge, and all of you kind folks who came!
Also, special thanks to: Wendy Ip for videotaping, Nathan Lee for photographing, and
Charlie for the, "They're Real!" heckle! Oh, that's a long story... But kinda funny, maybe that should go in the act... Hmmmm....
Last but not least, mad big ups to: sweet Richard Loranger, one of my favorite writers/artists and people! I told him to his face how sweet I thought he was and he shot back with: By the time I'm fifty, I'll just be made of sugar... Dear Richard, I think you already are...

Quick Update on Christine
She has touched us all with her humor, talent, generosity, eloquence, strength and her sweet spirit...
A lot of you have asked, "How's she doing?" Some answers can be found on her site:
From what I know, she is in the hospital recovering. It sounds like she is doing well even though she underwent the bone marrow transplant with a partial match donor. This was not optimal, but time to search for a perfect match ran out.
Christine seems to be in good spirits and complaining less about this intensely difficult experience less than I am complaining about the heat. She puts me to shame!
I think to say that she is being a trooper is an understatement!
If you are the praying kind, please put a good word in for Christine's bone marrow transplant to graft without any complications, and for her to have a speedy, full recovery!
If you happen to be a person of color, please consider signing up to be on the bone marrow donor registry! www.marrow.org
This is because if a person of color needs a bone marrow transplant, there is a good chance that there will not be a match on the registry. If you are white, 10 -20 matches might come up for a person. My boss/friend, Audra Synder told me that a friend 0f hers had a bone marrow transplant and is now doing great! If you can, please consider being a bone marrow donor. It is no longer a big, painful procedure and you could save someone's life!
Marketing, Marketing, Marketing...
I heard a story about marketing and children on NPR. A man went to see his doctor and he had his son in tow. At the end of the visit, the son looked up at his dad and said, "You forgot to ask him about Levitra."

My Brain is Grits
I was chatting with Michelle and she told me that REI is rated the ninth best company to work for in the United States. She said that REI has been on the list since its inception. That seems like a great thing...
The world is so mad right now, it seems reasonable to focus on the good...
I do love me some grits... Reckon it's time for supper...
