Last night was bitter sweet. I had a great time with all of my friends at Croxley’s but was sad to think about it being the last time I’d see some of them for a long time. It was fun to get together my friends, coworkers, ex-coworkers, and online friends and watch them interact with each other. Thanks everyone, for everything. I will miss you all so much. In September 2001, just after the WTC attacks, I moved to NYC and it stole my heart. I will always have a soft spot there for the city and each of you helped to make it a great place and a great experience for me.

Late into the night after most people had left, Eric, Dave, Jessica and I wandered from Croxley’s to a bar called Manitoba’s.

    Niiice hotpants pix.

    Sorry I missed your farewell shindig. Looks like you had a great time. Lots of luck…though for those of us you type to/with you more than we see you, maybe not much will change!

    Drinking with R-Beezy

    It’s strange, I’ve known Rachelle for a little while now, and we’ve gone on many adventures, but I seldom go drinking with her. I think last time was the first time I’ve seen her drunk and maybe the last…

    Are you 5′ tall? You just seem taller in pics by yourself.

    I’ll be looking for those hotpants in the next Victoria’s Secret catalog.

    New York’s loss is Chicago’s gain.

    I hear in Chi-town folks dont go out after work for cocktails as much as is done in Manhattan. Until now!

    Good luck to you Rachelle and if at all possible, please pass on that good Bowden DNA to the next generation :-)
