NYE was spent going out with friends and then losing those friends and stumbling into other friends, etc. etc. etc.

Disorienting, but ultimately fun night.

Customs agent at border was inquisitive re: boyfriend and if we would be returning together, etc. It was odd. His customs agent asked who his boyfriend was and I had to wave perkily from the line.

we hosted a NYE rager at our house with a keg and a band (Salamander Wool) playing in our basement and champagne corks and bottle rockets getting shot off the back porch at midnight- it was kinda hardcore, didn't get to bed until 6 am- Martin was the bartender and I was the DJ so we barely saw each other at our own party . . .

Just had a New York-style bagel for the first time. I'm not sure how I feel abou this.

I don't believe I had a Montreal bagel on my one visit; what's different?

Alex, you're still here Thursday evening? Maybe we could get together w/ whoever else wants to....

Definitely still in town Thursday evening, but the schedule is pretty tight.

If a bunch of us are up for something I can try to talk the bf into joining or talk him into letting me slip away for an hour or two.

Where should a person get a bagel while there? Just anywhere?

Hey hey! New Year!

I spent NYE with Chinese food & Trivial Pursuit: Book Lovers' Edition.

The former was wonderful but the latter was ill-advised.

I am still recovering from Christmas, I think, at least emotionally. There were certainly good moments but some really upsetting things, too. Plus all of the usual holiday exhaustion and intoxication. A funeral on the 27th for a friend who had been murdered kinda capped it all off.

One good part is that my mom's side of the family is finally ready to meet D. -- he was extended an invite to 2 family functions, even -- but he's not quite ready for that. But it's progress!

No problem! Hope you feel better. I awkwardly introduced Morbz to my undergrad roommate who is from NYC and Katherine from The Singles Jukebox and we had a lovely and awkward but mostly lovely time. I think. I hope? I'm vaguely filled with social anxiety.

Last night I attended the most incredible drag show I have ever seen/will ever see in my entire life. Sharon Needles (from the  current season of Drag Race) was thre and at one point during her performance of Marilyn Manson's "Beautiful People" she collected all her tips and put them in a blender with a ton of vodka, which she later drank. This was actually later upstaged by a queen who sang "Part Of Your World" from The Little Mermaid while doing this:

which ended with her hanging limp like a drowned corpse 15 feet above the stage.  Holy shit.
