Goodbye 2008: The Year in Photos

December 31st, 2008 • Posted in Life

2008 was a good year. Thank you thank you THANK YOU to my husband, family and friends…
For all the miles we walked together in memory of those we’ve lost
For all the music we enjoyed at concerts and on the dancefloor
For all the Sunday dinners, birthday parties and happy hours
For all the smiles and laughter
For all […]

A Day in the Life of a Gay

December 11th, 2008 • Posted in Life

5:00 am
At least, I think it’s 5:00. Who knows. My eyes are still shut but I can hear Pip putting on his shoes and picking out which glasses to wear for the day. Every morning before he leaves for work, he gives me a kiss goodbye. As soon as hear him walk out the door, […]

Indian Summer

October 31st, 2008 • Posted in Life, Music

The past few weeks were beautifully warm and sunny, but as we near the end of October, I can feel the end of our indian summer as the temperatures drop and rain begins to fall. The colder mornings and shorter days are making it harder to get out of bed in the morning. At least […]

Just Married!

October 2nd, 2008 • Posted in Life

Sixteen years ago, Pip and I met on March 22. The vernal equinox. The first day of Spring. The mark of a new beginning. Now that we can be legally married, it was only appropriate that we have our civil ceremony on September 22, the autumnal equinox.
We were married on a sunny Monday afternoon at […]

What a great day! They had a special event at VISA HQ for Michael Phelps. Pip was able to get me in for the meet and greet. We got our photo taken with him and got his autograph. I was star-struck and we were only with him for a minute, so we didn’t really get […]

Bachelorette Party

August 26th, 2008 • Posted in Life

Pip and I are going to make things legal and tie the knot (again) at City Hall in September. After sixteen years together, we feel like an old married couple, so I don’t exactly have that new bride feeling. Still, it’s important to us to have our relationship recognized legally, and for that, we look […]

Go-Go Dancing Mad Scientists

June 30th, 2008 • Posted in Life

Pride weekend was fun! Genentech had a float in the parade. Although we were in the parade last year, this was the first time ever doing a float. Considering we had almost no budget, I think it all turned out pretty cool. The theme was “Mad Scientists”. Some of the team put together a […]

Hot Hot Heat

June 27th, 2008 • Posted in Life, Walk Journal

The Avon Walk is a couple of weeks away! We’ve started tapering down our miles. Last weekend, we did only one long walk — an 18-mile walk to Tiburon with the Hotties. The Bay Area was experiencing a heat wave. We started our walk at six in the morning, and the temperature was already in […]

A Busy Week

June 9th, 2008 • Posted in Life, Walk Journal

What a busy week it’s been! Last Saturday, we did a 12-mile walk with the Hotties. Starting from the Warming Hut in the Presidio, we walked over to Cole Valley. Our major climb was up Stanyan St. to Tank Hill. Although overcast, we still got great views of the city. On the way back, we […]

We had a few people over a Rock Band cocktail party. A good time was had by all.
