Jay’s Birthday Party

On Sunday 3/16, Val and I went to Jay’s 45th birthday party. It was great to see him, and also to connect with some friends we don’t see very often. Our friend Rocket took a cute picture of the two of us at the party.

Purim

We once again attended the joint Purim Party, held at Temple Beth Judea in San Francisco, with a lot of our B’nai Emunah friends. First there was a potluck, then two Megillah readings (one more traditional, one with lots of “shtick”), then Havdalah, then dessert. After that there was a movie for the kids, and the adults danced to Klezmania. It was fabulous!

Pictures here.

Shabbat Dinner at Rabbi Mark’s

After the Play-a-thon in 3/14, Haley and I headed over to Rabbi Mark’s house in Pacifica for dinner, where Val and Jason had arrived earlier. It was crowded, but delicious, and the company was great.

Car Break-in

On 3/8 Val and I went to the Black Saturday event at the Powerhouse in SF. When we came out around midnight, we found that the front passenger window of my car had been smashed in. The thieves were pretty stupid, taking only a water bottle, a charging cable, and my wrist brace (!). We had to vacuum out the car (we were pointed to a nearby car wash by the police), and it was a cold ride home with no window. I submitted a police report online, and called in to submit a claim. After some mixups with the insurance company, the window was replaced the following Wednesday. What an annoyance!

Visit with Linda

On 3/9 Val and I got to visit with Linda. Val helped her with her computer while I was moderating the panel, and then we met up at a great Thai restaurant.

Mr. SF Leather

In her role as Ms. SF Leather, Val was automatically a judge for the Mr. SF Leather contest. It was a full weekend affair, 2/28-3/2. Friday was the Contestant Meet & Greet, where Val and the other judges were also introduced,¬†followed by a roast of Andy Cross, the outgoing titleholder and Val’s departing “sash husband”, where she spoke on stage. On Friday she was busy with the various judging activities, so I represented the Hollinger/Langmuir clan at services at B’nai Emunah, then joined Val in SF for the contest. I sat with my friends Rio and Ray since Val was in her exalted position at the judges’ table. On Sunday we went to the Leather Alliance Awards Brunch, where Ms SF Leather won “best contest”, and the Exiles’ Carnal Carnival (which I organized) won best non-contest event. Very cool!

Various pictures with Val and the various Mr. SF Leathers and related events can be found here.

Lovely visit, as usual

Val and I had one of our regular visits from Jennifer and Selena on 2/22. We love our friends, and that they care enough to make sure to make time for us on a regular basis.
