I got to see a few former coworkers of mine and their significant others. It's always nice to see people particularly when it's at Dougie's Xpress BBQ. I was never much of a meat eater when I wasn't aware of the real way to 'keep kosher' as it were but it's almost like I want it since for the most part it is inaccessible to me - in Seattle, that is. When I lived in New York I didn't have all that much meat.
I hope to be living back in New York soon. I miss it way too much. Perhaps my book will be picked up by a major publisher and great things will happen.
