I’ve been drinking wine tonight with Bad Bastards and Sluts and don’t have any time to post much . I sat out most of the day anyway, working on my presentation–or trying to. Here are a few pictures from the awards lunch and later though. You may recognize some of the names, or know them

Nice photos. Thanks for posting. I am here too but like you, kinda hiding. Will likely see you Sunday.
I can’t believe I’m just now thanking you for the photos! It was great getting together, especially over lunch on Sunday. I wish we could do that more often!
