The fake trailer Machete is so spot on you can smell the Hai Karate.
"This is my yellow friend -- just to take the sting off. Now say hello to my red friend, see you can't feel anything..."
Some of the best art of 2007!

Be more vulnerable (more trusting, less suspicious)
Sing and Dance more. In the car, at home, on the street. Just more of spontaneous acts of joy.
Make friends with Ben Gibbard*.
Look in health's direction and start walking.
More coffee dates with my friends.
That's a good place to start.
After eating lamb shanks, risotto, salad (and prosciutto wrapped around bread sticks -- meat on a stick!), I rolled (okay, drove) up the hill to Sandy Cioffi's NYE party. This was my second year and it felt nice to have a new tradition since the boys left.
Sandy also did a great midnight toast challenging individuals (esp. gay individuals) to stand up for immigration rights/immigrants this upcoming year. "When one is oppressed, all are oppressed."
This party has a ritual where you write down things you want to get rid of from 2007 and things you want to bring in with 2008. I burned all 2007 and just wanted to start over in 2008. I'm excited and optimistic and just know it's going to be a fantastic year.
One party-goer wanted to burn 'stupidity'. After 5 minutes, the flames still hadn't touched it. We decided that was the human condition.
Dinner at Michael Hebbory's table.
If I'll be drinking for a long time , I want some food in my belly. And if I want some food in my belly, I want good food. And friends. And a killer view.
It was a great way to cap off the old year. I ran into lots of friends and folks that I haven't seen enough of this year!
