I'm finally out of hibernation from recuperating from the Benefit Party festivities on Halloween Eve (10/30/04)! It went well, all the performers rocked, and my opera wasn't bad at all. I want to thank all the performers, volunteers, sponsors, and my friends for all the support and lovin' vibes that helped get this naughty nurse in black vinyl costume out and kickin'.

So Bush is president again. Yikes. I definitely did not vote for him yesterday. But since he's back in the White House, do not despair! (I know it's hard!) I echo with friends' pleas to not be depressed, as there is light to make! We need to brush the Bush debris off our shoulders and get to work. It is times like these that remind us that our work, mobilization, and coalition-building is so very necessary.
