It's such a perfect day. My morning is immeasurably improved whenever I get to walk through the dog park. Roses and birds of paradise and the Jurassic-sized impatiens that San Francisco hosts and that I'm still not used to are blooming. A five-year-old girl with killer bangs whirled dervishly and carefree outside a cafe that was blasting North African music. A tow truck driver leaned out his window and yelled, "Mornin' sweetheart!" in such a sincere non-skeevy way that I was charmed. Happy Friday.

Today made me sad
because I went to my first ANZAC service ever. This is sad enough (that I have waited this many years to do so, that is), but the service and the part where the names of the residents in the local area who were killed at Gallipoli

There's no point to this, I just wanted to share.

Important Safety Reminder: Dear friends, this is just a reminder to use a bit of caution when revealing personal details on the site. Even though metachat seems like a fairly closed community, it's just as open as the rest of the internet and here, as there, you need to be careful about sharing any information that allows people to easily locate you, spoof your ID, harrass you by publishing personal anecdotes elsewhere, or cause trouble with your family or employer. If you use a webwide handle on here, people who bear you a grudge on another site may be tracking your comments here; additionally, if you get too intimate in the details that you share here, you may attract unwanted attention based on that. So, please, for bunny's sake, have fun - but be safe, and have a care.

I already got a nibble, but he wants to know how much. Since I've only married friends and relatives, essentially for barter or free, I got no idea how much to charge someone else.

A few days ago, pre-layoff and pre-reunion, I was sitting in my bar with my boys Tennessee Sam (a graying mid 30's punker) and Roy, a Belize-born, Brooklyn raised black man in his fifties.

Dear New Yorkers, why is it snowing?!
VanityPalooza: Our new band shots! Paul Natkin
, former Rolling Stones photographer, did our band pics (no brick walls - just a drop cloth) and I must say, they look great. I wanted to share. I'm the dork in the cowboy hat

So I thought that interrobang's thread was awesome. But now I want to know what art folks around here like that isn't as traditional as painting and sculpture. Got a favorite piece of performance art? Aural Composition? Experimental Film? Art types I haven't heard of? You will tell me now!

I'm in a bad, bad mood. So, I thought I'd play a few songs for you on metachat radio. Just because I'm in a grump doesn't mean I can't do something nice.
Reminder! NYC MetaChat Mini-Meetup in two days. Thursday, April 6, 7:00 pm at Rudy's. I think most of us know what the others look like. Is there a specific place in Rudy's we should try to settle?
