See, in my fantasy, when I'm kissing you... you're kissing me. It's okay. I can wait.

"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.

Compassionately intolerant

Greetings Buffistas! I made a video for y'all partly for my annual Best of DC campaign request, but mostly to say hey, and show my face, since I am around so little.

The link to the Video Message goes to Canva, and requires no log-in.

In it, I explain why this is the SECOND to the LAST time I will make this request and why it's important.

If you could take a quick 30 seconds to help a sporadic sister out, I would be grateful!

PS: Voting closes on Monday...because I am a procrasti-planner of the highest order!

Why isn't everyone pelting me with JOY, dammit? - Zenkitty

Just got off a video visit with my oncologist. With the results of my last MRI, he wants to be a little more aggressive than previously planned. So I'll be starting infusion chemo again in a couple of weeks. A different variety that will go easier on my kidneys but probably cause me to lose my hair (priorities, I know). Chemo pills and/or the drug trial are both still on the table, but more as maintenance plans once we get it more under control. As much as I hate the idea, I am starting to have more pain, so I'm definitely ready to get things going.
