Fight the HATE!

Tomorrow, December 10, is my birthday and International Human Rights Day. Call in GAY! Or come celebrate with me.

"On December 10, 2008 the gay community will take a historic stance against hatred by donating love to a variety of different causes.

On December 10, you are encouraged not to call in sick to work. You are encouraged to call in "gay"--and donate your time to service!

December 10, 2008 is International Human Rights Day. CLICK HERE to join us, and search or add to the list of human rights organizations that need our help RIGHT NOW. "

BIRTHDAY: To be quite honest - I had planned to take this day off anyway, so I am not going to be complying with the intent of the cause as I had already made reservations for fun things for my birthday.

I am a sagittarius and we get the entire month to celebrate to make up for thanksgiving, xmas, and all the other holidays hogging the air time.

* Last weekend, I took and passed the motorcycle safety course and DMV written test last weekend, followed by a celebratory dinner at Berkeley Cha-Ya.

* Last night I went to see "I Can't Think Straight" at the Roxie with two friends (followed by dinner at SF Cha-Ya, what can I say - I like their food).

* Tomorrow (actual bday), I plan to:
  • do laundry & pack for my trip
  • visiting a thrift store in my neighborhood with limited M-F 10-3 hours for the first time
  • early lunch with a coworker who is calling in gay
  • soaking at Kabuki Springs followed by "Nirvana" package from 3-6
  • dinner at Millennium
* Thursday - Dame Edna "First Last Show"
* Weekend at Orr Hot Springs

PERSIMMONS: I am nearly done with persimmons. I know, it's silly. I have got to get the photos up. I didn't take a lot of photos of the table full of persimmons but James has one that I'll try to copy... some of the persimmons were so ripe that I ended up over drying them and they are a bit crispy but still delicious. I have a few more persimmons to dry - they are nearly ripe. I have a lot of pulp reserved for sorbet and frozen margaritas. Yum.

Just got your message on my blog! I'll have to come up with something to trade with you. I don't have anything ready to go right now. :)
