Hello from New York, where my family is gathering for my niece Molly's Bat Mitzvah on Saturday. I didn't do much on Friday besides traveling, apart from posting a review of Deep Space Nine's exceptional "Chimera" and rushing to pack (we had to stop in College Park on our way to I-95 because a son who shall remain nameless had left his suit in his apartment).
I'm still coughing -- hoping not to keep my family awake all night -- and I still don't have a voice, meaning that once the dance music starts, I probably won't be able to have a conversation. But I get to see my college roommate Tracey and her partner for brunch, and we might visit Sleepy Hollow Cemetery if the weather cooperates! From the drive:
