Weekend Warrior

On Friday, Matt and I went to an event I've been looking forward to for a month. Todd (co-worker who started when I do, sharer of energy drinks, and fellow PA transplant!) participated in a Mixed Martial Arts for Autism cage fight at the Palladium in Worcester. I expected to be disgusted by the brutality, but after the first few punches, it mostly looked like amped up high school wrestling. I got to see some of my co-workers in rare form, which was worth more to me than I can describe! HEHEHE! Oh the delightful drama. As the only one of the BCI crew sober, I was just drinking in the craziness. Todd raised thousands of dollars for his martial arts for autistic kiddos group he created for his son, and everybody had a good time. Afterwards, I was dismayed when my friends from work couldn't keep it together long enough to stick around for drinks afterwards. We went to Jose Murphy's. Took one look, heard the insipid techno, and walked out. I was really bummed we didn't hang out together, but I can't wait to party it up in Hartford on the 20th! Gershon Fox Ballroom, here i come!

are you guys going ballroom dancing on the 20th? Is my brother aware of this?

I think the party is just IN a ballroom. And he's not coming. He has Ricky's b-day party to attend. And no, I doubt I will ballroom dance. But there's a cash bar, so never say never.
