Yesterday was a crazy day- I got up around five o'clock in the morning so I could make sure that mom got on the road in time to beat the traffic on her ride home to Virginia. After getting her bags in the car, I bid her godspeed at a quarter to six. She made decent time, although visibility was piss-poor due to foggy conditions all along the Atlantic seaboard, there was little traffic. About five hours after she got home, she left for the airport.
On a lighter note, I got my ass to Times Square last night to celebrate the birthday of my great and good friend, Secret Science Club Goddess and Force of Nature, the divalicious Dorian Devins. Dorian being Dorian, she celebrated in style, singing standards backed by her jazz combo (Lou Rainone on piano and Austrian Jazz Machine Alex Gressel. After a hell of a week (even though it was only Tuesday) it was a much needed night of strong coffee, good friends, and fantastic music. Ya just gotta get the hell out of Dodge every once in a while.
