Me too, heh.

I just hope the weather cooperates.
As of now, Looks like we can expect some rain.

Better rain in Chicago instead of snow in Denver.

So ... how was it?

How was your New Years Eve?

Mine was swell; went to a house party in Greensboro, as promised. Had some drama at 12:15 when someone stole the bottle of champagne my date had set down on a patio table. Note to would-be champagne thiefs: I will know it was you the second I hear that cork pop! We recovered the full bottle, admonished them, and then had a grand time photographing people swigging from the bottle.

And I know y'all had some grand destinations. Reports?

How was New Orleans? We had to cancel and had a great time with friends at home. I do really regretted not being able to get to the French Quarter for New Years Eve though.

Grand for me is someplace like Sydney, New York or Rio and I've always preferred somewhere smaller like New Orleans.

Half the crowd was already partying hard on Bourbon St early evening. We gambled at the casino for a few hours, made our way to the square for the countdown and the fireworks, returned to Oz for more fun until late, then walked safely home to the apt.

I ended up seeing Kylie at Wembley... A great show from an entertainer who really needs to break through in the states. I'll take her over Madge anyday

Interestingly, I spent New Years Eve in the company of Scott Kirby, President of US Airways. I was a last minute fill-in for some people who couldn't attend a fund-raiser type event at a local resort here in Phoenix. Turns out, I was seated at the US Airways sponsored table! Quite a treat for someone who's a US mileage junkie like me to be able to chat with the President of the company.

Ok, so I know this wasn't gay-specific but thought it might be of travel-related interest
