DSCN4575The Gala was really fun! My girlfriend iced me last minute, fortunately I have a Chris who was by my side in a pinch! Viva la Cult!

Fun things I did last night included seeing the Mayor, whose speech literally concluded with:

“Gotta go, I have another function to go to. My girlfriend is waiting…”

Apparently it was his birthday. So happy belated Mayor Bloomberg. I read your paper every day at work.DSCN4563

Other fun ¬†Gala things included bombay and tonic, a lovely lady in a black sparkly dress singing, goat’s cheese salad and men in tuxedos. Naturally, my dress was the prettiest. There certainly were no other gold evening gowns in attendance. #justsayin

It feels good to donate to charity. Sure I’m broke, but I stay broke. It’s nice to be broke and be able to donate to charity. It’s amazing to be a full-time Writer, who isn’t a journalist, and be able to experience things like what I saw last night. A lot of loaded people giving something back. It was fun feeling out of place, in that “wait, are we really allowed to be in here?” sort of way… we actually left a bit early, like the Mayor.
