Went to the first planning meeting for Burlesque for Peace II yesterday evening. I took minutes, which was great, because it was something I could help with that was an instant commitment-fulfillment. (It's done, it helped, and I don't have to remember to do something to do it.)

After that there was a gathering of people at the same place who came to sing show tunes accompanied by piano. Luckily none were played that I knew, so I didn't end up showcasing my Ethel-Mermanesque tunelessness. I say that jokingly -- I loved it. I sang a few John Denver songs quietly to myself from one of the books of sheet music until it was too much and I had to put it back and think-about-something-else for a while.

I was feeling really down just before and just after the meeting. Seeing reinaness still uses up an amount of emotional capital that I can't quite define. I decided to be smart about it, move on, and seek out my friends and keep making connections to try to give the day a more uplifting ending. Two social occasions and three friends later that same evening, and I'm feeling much, much better.

forgive my intrusion (again) but how was the singalong? I talked to Dory and Adam on the phone for a while beforehand. I was really sad I couldn't go. but the inter-continental plane ticket was, I'm afraid, too high a price to pay. hope there was dancing.

+, though I don't know you, good job at not letting exes in close quarters bring you down. that takes fortitude.

Is it still capital if it's not used for investing?

    If I could be, for only an hour
    If I could be, for an hour every day
    If I could be, for just one little hour
    Cute... in a stupid assed way.

So... apparently, that particular translation comes from a showtune itself. In particular, Mort Shuman translated it into English for Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris.

I was really glad to see you there, and super glad to get to talk a bunch and vent about family crap. Yay! Matthews!

I was also pleased to see you. Are you still in town or already off to Arizona or Pennsylvania? I'd like to run after your truck a little bit and try to catch up.
