An Outdoor Lunch

The last couple of days, co-workers and I have been taking advantage of the perfect weather by having our lunches outside. Here I am "pretending" to take a mid-day nap. The other photo is of co-workers in the landscaped area in front of our office building.

Pride 2011

Pride Day 2011 was a memorable blast. A ton of balloons turned into a dress, gals from Asian Human Services and guys from Indianapolis made our float a hit and what a fun theme: "I'm not a Transformer; I'm a Transvestite!"

Chip's Birthday atop the Center on Halsted

Chip had his birthday celebration on the top of the Center on Halsted (their Pride kickoff party). Hal Sparks the comedian was there too and after I took his picture, he jumped down off the stage and I told him: "You're much taller in person." He laughed. (He's not tall.) Happy birthday Chip!

Free Burritos

What do you do when a co-worker wins 10 free burritos? You break for free burritos! Sometimes life can be full of surprises.

Goodbye Vanessa!

A dear friend from my dance company days is leaving Chicago to start her own business in Houston (and be closer to her brother and sister). We were surprised when she announced her decision last night, but we were thrilled by the new door that's opening for her. All the best Vanessa!

I Win an Award from Harris Bank!

To my surprise, I won a community service award from Harris Bank this morning. I attended their LGBT affinity group's Pride breakfast, partly because they were honoring inductees of the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame, but they surprised me with an additional recognition and trophy for the AIDS-awareness work and work with Asians and Friends that I've done over the years.
