Jungleboy Transparent

There's a floor in there!

I spent about 7 hours today (Sunday) trying to reclaim the studio, and have made significant progress.

Among other things, the folding cutting table, which was folded out halfway and covered in junk, with an equally large collection underneath it is now cleared off and folded up against the wall.

3 loads have gone out into the recycle bin, and there's a big enough bag of trash that I'm going to have to get an "extra garbage sticker" for Friday's pickup.

Among other long-put-off tasks, the boxes of old HOA documents (no longer relevant) and magazines have been chucked into recycling.

I figure another day's work and I'll have a usable studio again, so I can get to work on my Future Fashion show piece.

Port Out, Starboard Home... Posh! *

This weekend is the Billy DeFrank Center's 25th Anniversary Gala.

Andy and I are "Silicon Valley Circle Sponsors" for the event. (We've decided to spread our charity money around a bit this year instead of buying an entire table at the GLAAD Media Awards).

And the Gala has a room block at the Fairmont, so now we have a "Signature" room with a private patio overlooking the pool at $50 below their normal web rate.

So I figure we pack our nice duds, park in one of the Willow Glen Park N Ride lots, take the light rail downtown and have a lovely evening with no searching for parking spots. Plus when we're in the mood we can tumble upstairs to bed.


*Oh yeah -- name that tune, and movie :-)
