When it comes to social interactions

When it comes to social interactions I prefer to have them with a mic in my hand or a camera in my face. Tonight I mixed with people unknown to me without all that though. Just me, my bongos and a bottle of Wild Turkey. Minus the bongos and Wild Turkey.

I went to a party with Red Eye pal John Roy where I met a guy (funny comedian Pete Holmes) who draws actual cartoons for the New Yorker. I got all excited and tried to explain that I draw fake cartoons for the New Yorker but I don't draw them, I just think them up, and I never send them in because it's not about that. I think he was suitably impressed. Then I mentioned that some of my fans have actually drawn them but what I really meant to say was, "Did I mention I have fans?"

And then I had a horribly awkward exchange with a woman by the crudite, but it's late and I'm too tired to write it out. Perhaps tomorrow, my dears. It involves slippery bell peppers and tongs.

Quote of the Social-interactivated:

"TOp HEadline SToRiES of the DaY:

-MAN Hanging a Sarah Palin Mannequin as a Halloween Decoration draws attention.

-Stocks soar high.

-High School Musical 3 is number one in the box office.

-Stand-ups are running low in the ongoing satirical material drought. Many fear worst to come as politicians are careful not to let a Freudian Slip go by in the remaining days of campaigning.

---- ZZZZZZZZ (Leave me alone, ANDerson CoOper very tired.)

You were out late partying on a school night? I suppose it's OK since you don't go to school.

I woke up this morning at 5am... no power... no heat... temp inside: 61, temp outside: 32 (with 2" of snow on the ground.)

I made some coffee and read by flashlight for an hour and waited to the sun to come up. Power finally came back on at 7:45.

What the heck did people do before electricity? Did they ALL read by flashlight?

Pretty much the same type of morning here Joe. The power dropped around 2:00 am, then it was on and off a number of times.

I'm pretty close to open ocean and the wind was really rocking last night.
