"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

There will be a memorial for Jacqueline Anne Zahas Smay

on Saturday, May 18th, from Noon to 4pm

at The Lodge on the 3rd Floor of the Regency Ballroom, 1290 Sutter Street (Corner of Sutter and Van Ness) San Francisco.  


Food and drink will be served.

In honor of Jacqueline, please come dressed in splendid colors with all your peacock finery, in your own inimitable style.

In remembrance of Jacqueline, you are invited (though certainly not required) to tell a brief story about her.  We are deprived of Jacqueline in our future but her past is a trove of stories, and I don't know them all!  And that is unacceptable. 

So share your tales of her as a child, in high school, at college, traipsing around Norwich, drinking in Greece, bawdy at the RenFaire, online, at work, or however you may have known her.

If you plan on attending, please RSVP me at or whatever direct messaging (FB, Text) is our common communication.

I need this for the headcount for the caterer, so please include the number of guest(s) that will be attending, and whether you're deathly allergic to monkfish or actively trying to free your glutens.

We won’t stop until everyone is gay.

Will update more fully later, but for now please send all your job~ma with a side of salary bump and/or relocation assistance towards Chapel Hill, NC. I crushed the interview process and think it’s a great fit all the way around. Hope to hear by Friday.

"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

For those of you traveling in and out of San Francisco this weekend, be apprised that Bay To Breakers is this weekend.

Here's Juliana's note:

"Just as a warning for those hanging out in SF on Sunday: it's Bay to Breakers, which is a wild 12K race that essentially cuts the city in half. Here's the route: [link]

David's old neighborhood gets hit particularly hard."

So if you are trying to get to the airport on Saturday your options for crossing the City will be limited, and you'll need to plan ahead, because there are only a few places where they allow cross traffic that intersects the route. You'll need extra time, and a discussion with your Uber driver or Cabbie.

"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

Here is the link for Jacqueline's Memorial, 5/18/25, starting Noon PST.

It is a Livestream on YouTube:


It will reside on YouTube when the event is over so anybody can catch up to it as they need, no matter the time zone.

The event starts at Noon and runs until 4pm.

However, the first hour, as people arrive and eat and mingle, will just be a slide show of Jacqueline and the music playing at the event.

Starting at 1pm PST, people will begin sharing stories about Jacqueline and you'll see the feed.
