    I never realized my boils were so prominent. But, other than that, DAMN, I LOOK GOOD. Thanks go, obviously, to Robin and Florence. (Remember? "Best there is at what we do?" Yeah. It's like that.)

    The mantis was before my time, but good going to everyone involved. (In fact, that's pretty amazing.)

    You NY folks better show Bill a good time or else he'll always compare you unfavorably to us. And we kicked your ass in 1812 and have no desire to do so again, so if you invade us, you'll have to answer to WHITECHAPEL. And I should say you can scarcely afford ANOTHER war.

    EDIT TO ADD : The story I'm reading in the first pic? THE GLORY BOAT, by a l'il fella name of JACK KIRBY. Highly recommended.

    A FURTHER EDIT TO ALSO ADD - Know who the main villain of THE GLORY BOAT by JACK "KING" KIRBY is? Um ... Mantis. Weird, huh?

    @John Skylar, @Artenshiur, if you think you'll join us tomorrow evening, email me at bill(at)oddbill(dot)com and I'll send you my cell # so you can text or call if or some reason you can't find us at the Agora Gallery.

    @Glukkake, I sent you my number via Google+.

    Looking forward to meeting anyone who appears!

    I haven't seen any mantises (mantii) since. Maybe that same mantis is following you, Florence.

    Hey Grease,thanks dude,I'm using my old mp3 player at the moment so it's no probs.
    I'll just get it next time we're having drinks,
    Cheers bud!

    Okay, I'll keep it in a safe place. I have a pair of yellow-brown shades as well, which I think are either yours or your buddy's.

    Next time I'm hosting is looking like October right now.

    Yesterday I met in a consecutive but non-overlapping string: @dorkmuffin at an art gallery, where I drank two (very small) glasses of wine and chatted a bit. Her friend Olivia's photography was very cool. Then after that I met @Glukkake at the apartment she is house sitting for a burner and had two small glasses of very fine scotch that her friend brought along while coming to pick something up. Then after that I met @Jon Skylar and @Artenshiur and his friend Ellen for food and drinks at a nearby outdoor restaurant where I further consumed two more full glasses of wine. After that the four of us moved on to yet another bar and I drank a Chimay.

    Today I have consumed only advil, coffee and water. It was great fun meeting everyone! Photos will follow in time.

    Right now NYC is battening down for the possible arrival of a hurricane, which might cause my Sunday flight to be cancelled. If I'm able to get to the airport on Sunday, I'll go here and hope for the best. if not, I may be here an extra day or two.

    Hurricane Irene has decided I am not allowed to fly away until Tuesday. I'll be in Manhattan Sunday and Monday as well.

    Seven drinks and you're done? In NYC? Honestly, Bill, I spill more than seven drinks BEFORE LUNCH. (Yes, I REALIZE there's a corolory there and if perhaps I didn't spell it correctly, that's the reason for it.)

    Damn right you own your lameness. (Move to Toronto, Bill! We heart you AND your head and WE WANT YOU TO LIVE!?! WHY WON'T YOU LET ME LIVE?!? wE WILL IN tORONTO, bILL! wINTER KINDA SUCKS, THOUGH.)

    Sorry, was I shouting? Me am dunk now.

    DON'T MAKE ME INVADE YOU, AMERICANS! You wouldn't LIKE it when I invade you. (Yes, just me. The rest of the lads are COWARDS, apparently. Still, I like my chances.)

    I, for one, look forward to the mister hex nation building experience. And luckily, our entire military is on a decade abroad program, visiting a few of or closest allies, so, like Whitechapel at the moment, we're left without adult supervision.

    So, round two then, tonight? It's my last night in NY for a while, so if someone picks a time and a place ( on the island, I can't easily get off of Manhattan) I'll be there.
