Wow, guess it has been a spell since I did some typing. Have been rather busy. Let's see, what has recently happened. Oh, just got my final grade back on my masters class that just ended today. Another A to my credit. Well, A- actually. Now I have to submit the paperwork so that work will pay for the class. Got back from a tough drag event tonight. Stopped off at Starbucks and saw a few friends. Two are interested in working for Quest Diagnostics so we went over to the Teterboro lab and gave them a tour of the place. Saw several people I know from night shift and they were very impressed with the laboratory. It's very busy there at night. Then dropped them back off at Starbucks and came home. Earlier I saw the new Star Wars movie and LOVED IT. It really helps connect the dots with the first movie from 1977. This really helps close up all the loose ends of the entire 6 movies. YESTERDAY: Jeffrey and I went to see WICKED at the Gershwin Theatre. Loved the play. Maybe I will write later once I get on the island. Right now I hear my bed calling. Oh, maybe that is Tiffany meowing at me. Oh well.

Well that was totally unexpected. Tonight was our Investitures XIX where our new monarchs, Their Most Imperial and Sovereign Majesties Emperor XIV Tony Monteleone (The AAA Diamond Emperor of Allegria, Amore and Abbondanza) & Empress XIX Robin Kradles (The Fifth Avenue Jewel Empress of Sincerity, Service and Style) hand out their awards and elevate members of the court. Well, totally unexpectedly they call me up at the end of elevating everyone and present me with my new title. His Royal Highness Prince Royal Craig Hollywood. Wow. I was also made a brother to their majesties and inducted into the Testa di Cavallo Society. The food was excellent. I had the Mesclun Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette and toasted sesame seeds for a starter. Then Chicken Breast stuffed with spinach & artichokes, citrus sauce, garlic basil mashed potatoes and for dessert the Chocolate Mousse Cake. We had slightly over 100 people at Philip Marie on Hudson Street in the heart of the village. Oh well, it's off to bed with me. Turned my program in on Friday, got my grade back on it earlier too. 15 for 15 on this one. But a few things were pointed out that I need to change. The next one is due Friday but I will be on the island so I have to finish it on Thursday and upload it then.
