Fundraising evening

I survived my cold (so far) and was in good enough condition to enjoy myself at Mezcalito's last night. The evening went well and we raised nearly $300 for the walk. That may not sound like a lot, particularly with daily news reports about presidential candidates having to raise $100 million to even begin to run a campaign, but it's a small restaurant with inexpensive food and it was Tuesday. In other words, a smashing success! Lots of our neighbors came by to eat (and drink what appeared to be a lot of alcohol) to support the cause. It was fun and I don't know about Mezcalito's, but I'd do it again. They were definitely far busier than usual for a dead-of-winter, rainy Tuesday night. So if you went last night - thanks. If you were there in spirit, thanks, too.

I've always wanted to go to one of those red carpet affairs, with all the glamour and pizazz. The photos are so classy they look like they were ripped right out of the glossy pages of People magazine. I see in the shot of Branjelina that Brad went and shaved his head in solidarity with Britney. They are so spiritual. Tell me, were there any catfights (hope hope)?

Looks like Steve's getting fat. He used to be able to hide behind a beer bottle.
