Month: November 2008

  • My Fortune Cookie

    On Wednesday, we took two friends for their first experience of the wonder that is the Peking Duck House in NYC. At the end of the meal, they delivered the fortune cookies, as always. The four of us each got unique fortunes, so I had only a one in four chance of getting […]

  • Girlyman at Joe’s Pub

    Last night was our eighth Girlyman concert. It was the third time we’ve seen them at Joe’s Pub (where it all began). The other five shows were spread out over five venues, in two states, in five cities, with vast differences between the venues and at times, the audience makeup as well. These […]

  • I Fully Support President Obama

    I voted for John McCain, so did Lois (or so she told me). Each of us admitted to the other, that even though we knew in advance that we were voting for McCain, we hesitated in the voting booth, and wanted to vote for Obama. Not because we believed the rhetoric, and certainly […]

Of course, there are many super-great songwriters who can do both equally well, and move between the two at will. […]

  • Jack Kapanka

  • October 2008 Poker

    Wow. I was so excited and absorbed with our surprise trip to Cobleskill yesterday that I completely forgot to report on my poker results for October. While I was playing the big weekly tourney this evening, I realized that, and now that I’ve lost that one (part of next month’s report), I can […]

  • Girlyman at Golding Park Cafe

    For the few people who follow me on Twitter (I have a private feed, so there aren’t many), they knew something was up yesterday when I tweeted the following: Heading out for a long and secret adventure with Laura and Chris. Back around 1am, blog tomorrow! 😉 So mysterious. Now the mystery can […]
