Guess who's coming to dinner... (again)

My second dinner party that wasn't intended to be a dinner party . . .

Present were Edgar (the former head of the Gay Officer's Action league), Brian, Robyn (co-chair of the NYC Green Party), two of her friends and Lashley - who got arrested with me. Robyn prepared the squash and the sauce that went with it while I took care of the rice, the soup and the eggplant dish.

The cooks.

We all live in a police state! A police state! A police state! (sung to the tune of Yellow Submarine)

The morning after.

Saturday I spontaneously decided to head up to Boston to retrieve some personal belongings with Uchenna. I also had a couple of things to do for HRTV getting ready for the Freshmen activities fair. And of course, I wanted to check back on my old suite. I slept in the bedroom name to mine. I didn't go back with Uchenna, but I sat next to someone else I knew who I ran into at South Station. And in another one of those psuedo-random moments, right as I got off the subway at Harvard Square who calls my name but Joy, a Billionaire I met in Central Park. It inspired this Friendster testimonial:

Three weeks ago, Fate decided that I be friends with Joy. (Joy the actual
person, not the personification) I met her in Central Park dressed to the
nines. Then, the next time Joy would be in town for the Billionaires for Bush
ball (that I was scheduled to help at), Fate changed its mind and threw me in
jail for 48 hours - held at frustration's bay just a stone's throw
away from the ball at the same Chelsea pier. And then, a few days ago, Fate
reconsidered and when I made a spontaneous decision to visit
(unannounced) my old alla matter in Cambridge, who should I see coming out
of the Harvard square subway terminal?

It almost makes me believe in a thing called Fate. But alas, people such as
ourselves choose to place our faith in a thing called reason. And reason only
recognizes the arcane determinism of probability.

But this good news, because it's better when we hold Fate in our own hands.

My old room!!!

My old club!!!

My old Model UN chum!!!

Guess who's coming to dinner...

Against all [political] enemies, my dinner party was a success. Estrogen ruled the night though... we men were outnumbered 4 to 1. What with my new prime real estate and all, I've no excuses for going to bed alone that night. Sigh... I miss college.

Some of the folks I was 'detained' with. Nothing brings people together like a good ole' police state.

Adobe, we are at an impasse!

There's a slight error with Photoshop which keeps it from loading properly. I'll eventually get around to fixing it and there will be a massive set of updates in a couple of days.

Right now? Trying to evolve a schema. As for me, my feelings exist in utter ambiguity. It's sad, but I think it's the only way I manage in this life. Ambiguity such a good cruch to lean on. For me, it means I never have to face the prospects of complete rejection. For them, it means they can ignore those obvious signals as to my interest. Like I've always said, I'm risk-adverse. You tend to get that way when you've never felt like you've been on solid footing. It's a nice analogy to something quantitative.

Loser Lounge

Before I get into the details of my illegal detainment, these are pictures someone else took of a show I went to during the 2nd annual HOWL! Festival at CBGB (guess which one did the Blondie cover):
