I’LL HAVE A BLOODY MARY, A STEAK SANDWICH AAAND A STEAK SANDWICH

NY NY

In a few hours, I’ll be leaving on a jet plane (thanx to Howard Hughes).  My cousin Pete is playing Carnegie Hall and there are about 30 of us family members going to see him.  We’re all staying in the same hotel…I suspect we’re going to be having a rip-roarin’ good time!  I have soooo much to do before I get wanded at security, before I put my belongings in the overhead compartment where items may shift during travel, before I fasten the safety buckle tightly across my lap, before I order Diet 7Up (I always get that on a plane) and say ‘no thanx’ to the chips and so much to do before I let all of my short sleeved California worries fade away into the sunshine as I glide into the heavy coated and gloved and scarved arctic JFK airport.  Oh, and our hotel is in Rockefeller Center, so maybe I’ll ice skate or something too.  Maybe not. 
Truth is, that besides being with family and enjoying a great celebration of life and history, my only goal in NY is to get to ground zero and take a few minutes to reflect.  And, after that I have a meeting with Guliani.

JAZZ+USHER=YES

Last Saturday Holly and I ushered the ‘Elegant Evening of Jazz’ festival at the PAC…Lots of good jazz-lots of ‘cultured’ people-lots of good jazz.

Tonight I ushered the Langston Hughes 12 Moods for Jazz show…totally cool.  It was like a serious version of Mike Myers in the cafe in So I Married An Axe Murderer…beetnik, historical, jazzical, magical and Langston Hughesical. 

AND, if you want to join us in our ushering shenanigans, there’s an orientation meeting on Monday March 12th at 6:30pm at the Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons ..come on…it’s sooo worth it!  Free shows, great stories, getting in relationships with people in our community, great resume data.  Do it.

LET’S HEAR IT

So, my blog has a new look.  Bring it, faithful critics!

BERIT AND OTHER GOOD THINGS

SO, Berit Kawaguchi was in town (for a funeral) and we had loosely planned to hang out Sunday afternoon/evening.  I’m so glad we did too.  It was great to see her and to actually meet her dear sweet hilarious little daughter too. 
Though Berit had a lot of holding, bouncing, changing of diapers, comforting etc. to do, she still managed to ask a ton of questions, to laugh, to be warm and interested and to be speaking of the great things that God is doing in their lives.  I’m grateful for her.  
AND, big bonus, we were at Tina baker’s house, which is always great…Tina is mellow, inviting, and usually pretty hilarious.  All in all, it was a refreshing time to see other believers in the body of Christ on an Oscar studded Sunday afternoon/night!

PINK EYE-SHMINK EYE

So, lots of people have been asking me ‘How’s the eye?’…as a result, I figured I would post an update.
They’rrrrre GREAT!  Those $70 eye drops..YES, please! 

If you ever find yourself in the pink-eye blues, land yourself a little bottle of Zymar (gatifloxacin ophthalmic solution), use 3x a day and begin to open your eyes again, literally!
PTL!

AMAZING GRACE-THE MOVIE

So, last night was like a little local Christian community reunion (LLCCR) at Edwards theatre in Canyon Country.  We had about 8 people in our group and the theatre ended up packed out. 
The movie?  WELL DONE!  I’m glad I went-would see it again even. 

BEKAH & BLAKE BOYS HAVE A BOY!

I don’t have many details (pronounced ‘D-tails’), but I do know that Bekah & Blake  had their baby boy, Owen, on Wednesday.  Whooo Hoooo!!!  So now, the best friend’s sons (Saja & Bekah) are just a few days apart AND there are TWO Boys grandsons (since Ryan & Lindsay had their son recently too!).  Soooo, fun!
