I'm trying a new approach. I'm moving the News and Gossip
part of the personal site to Blogger. So this should make it easier for me to post regular updates and also to save me some time. So you might want to set your bookmark to to http://matthewholt.blogspot.com/ Thanks!
August 3, 2002:
I survived my birthday. It was quite a serious affair and very arty. Or more accurately, I managed to get in the DMV and out with a new licence, a new disabled sticker and registered to vote in under an hour -- even though I left to go home and missed my spot in line. I then made it to Hang
gallery and (thanks to the lovely Michele who runs it) arranged for several of my friends and various other hangers on to pretend they were buying art while guzzling down the wine. The party was going off on both sides of Sutter street with Carter and her scores of relatives continuing it IN the street. Some remnants of that crew made it across to Foleys Irish House pub. Eventually about 40 odd (and some normal) people showed up. Thanks for the cake Heidi! No thanks for the unblowable-outable candles, though!
For some reason people seem to think I have a mullet, although I havent had one for about 5 years--cool as they are! At Foleys, Megan Maurer took over the singer's mike and guitar, and actually sang me a song about mullet guy; the lyrics will be up here soon! The devine and lovely Miss Carter gave me a digital camera (a really cool one), and so several of the party photos are accesible if you (right mouse) click here
In other "news" The knee is recovering from its setback. (For those of you just catching up try the archive about the ACL
MCL et al). Star therapists Nicki and Laura
now tell me thatI can go travelling, so I'm very likely off in September to go to the UK for my stepsister's wedding, and then off to Asia to get lost for a few months. If you want to join me and/or have suggestions for where I should go please email me
Update: My beautiful 1969 Cheverolet Camaro convertible
was stolen a few weeks back. It's probably on a boat to China or somewhere. Grump, grump.
Separately, the pictures of the Utah trip are back and I'm putting together a little travelogue, which is getting more and more complete every day.......click here to take a look
