Company from Atlanta

My friend Greg from Atlanta came to visit this week. We had so much fun. We went bar hopping on Monday night and had a blast. Met all kinds of people and discovered a new cocktail. A Gin Appletini. YUMMO!! I'm not an appletini fan, nor am I a gin fan, but that drink was good!

Tuesday night we went to see La Cage Aux Folles starring Kelsey Grammar. It was great. Unfortunately the guy who won the Tony for playing Albin was not there and we saw his understudy, but he was good too. The dancers were incredible!

Wednesday night we saw Memphis. AMAZING!!! If you come to NYC, put this on your list of shows to see. It was absolutely wonderful. So powerful and moving. And the music and dancing was fabulous! I highly recommend this show.

It was over all too soon as he had to leave on Thursday, but it was great to host my first out of town guest. Greg says the new couch bed is very comfortable so y'all come see me!

Lots going on in NYC!

Things are great in NYC! I really love it here. I'm making lots of new friends and work is picking up.

I have a temp job until the end of the year. It is secretarial for a Donald Trump type business tycoon with companies all over the world. For the most part, I check and print his e-mail, because he doesn't use a computer, and occasionally send a reply to an e-mail. I had been there about 2 weeks when I came in one day and he started calling me June. I don't know where he came up with that. He had been calling me Sue or Susan for about 2 weeks. I finally told him and he didn't call me by name for the rest of the day. He finally started calling me Sue again the next day.

The church gig is really fun. Nice people, and I get to sing a lot. They actually pay me to sing! Yay! I am starting some piano students next week that I got through an online referral service. I'm working on building my website at It's up and running, but needs a lot of work. I have to figure out how to make it look like I want.

I've been through a lot of men, but none interesting enough to write about. I may have a few stories I can share. I'll write those up in a separate post. I will try to get better about updating on a more regular basis.

Thanks for reading!
