but still younger than me!

Happy Birthday, dearest flipping_hades. Thank you for sharing so many years with me already. Looking forward to celebrating many, many more.

trolley dances

anyone interested? 10/17 and 10/18

This October 17th and 18th, climb aboard the J-Church Muni Metro to discover San Francisco's diverse dance community and hidden architecture with San Francisco Trolley Dances 2009! $2.00 in train fare is all you need to see the best show in town as Kim Epifano's Epiphany Productions takes audiences out of the theater and into the streets to see some of the Bay Area's most acclaimed companies perform outdoor, site-specific works.

dear lazyweb (sf locals?)

I have a few items of women's businessy clothing that will never fit me. I could just donate 'em to a random charity, but I know some cities have programs specifically for low-income women who need business-type clothing for job interviews, etc. Is there such a thing in SF, and if so, where/how/etc?


passing it along

For the last 4 years, a group of food (and wine) bloggers all over the world have gotten together around Christmas for a virtual raffle in support of the World Food Programme. Here's a summary of where the funds went last year:

and here's how it works:
Basically, they all donate prizes -- a fancy meal at a restaurant, autographed cookbooks, kitchen appliances, experiences -- and for every $10 someone donates, that person gets one raffle entry -- and gets to use which of the many prizes they want to be entered to win.

It's a good cause. I know money's tight for everyone, but I thought I'd throw it out there. I know some of the people on my FL would be interested in some of the prizes...
