Off Topic: The Feast and Stuff
I want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes! I spent the afternoon and into the evening in Manhattan, mostly at the Feast of San Gennaro. I haven't been to the feast in years. Alas, it's become more generic since the days when the mob used to run it. But I like street fair food anyway. I brought home a half of a sausage, onions and peppers sandwich, a fried Oreo, and chocolate-covered strawberries. (Clicking on the image will enlarge it.)
Ow, I hurt. Stairs, walking, go to an escalator in the Port Authority building and it's not on! Ack. Walk, walk, walk some more. Deal with subway station stairs. And, I didn't bring my cane. So I'm here with my leg elevated and ice on the knee. But I'll be fine -- I just gave it a really good work-out. It's better than pre-surgery!
Regarding the Internet MySpace thief -- that page address is http://www.myspace.com/bigbrotherwatcher -- anyone frequenting that page is more than welcome to leave a nasty message about my work being plagiarized. And, feel free to let the world beware!
If you want to see some good accounts of Ike, check out Sydney's blog! I was so relieved to hear that she and others in the path of Ike fared okay.
As for the Big Brother live feeds, it looks like I didn't miss much at all. BORING! Now, if they had fisticuffs or something, there would be something to report.
Thanks again, everyone!
