All apologies


I have been trying to motivate myself to write about the trip, but with the news that a buddy who volunteers at my work has gone missing after a severe episode with depression, I am just not focused right now. This has, obviously, been very upsetting for those of us who consider him our friend.

So please send him your good thoughts - I left him a message and his phone is still on, which is a good sign.

In the meantime, so it's not all doom and gloom, here is the photo I wrote about! (Please ignore the hair that wilted in the New York humidity. I'm sure I would have appreciated it more had I been a mosquito.)

Love the photo!

All the good thoughts I can muster are coming that way.


Nice smile, by the way. And, yours is pretty good too ;-)

So sorry to hear about your friend. That is sad. Depression is a nasty beast and I hope he feels better soon.

Who is that hunk ? OMG, is he looking for tips ? Is he dressed like that for charity ? I would've totally donated to whatever cause he was pimping.

Ally said...

you look adorable! although your buddy doesn't look like the famous naked cowboy, he's still hunky ha ha!

sorry to hear the bad...glad you are back safely, though. And rumor is...Mr. Riot Kitty is happy too.

What a terrible thing - your friend is missing. I so hope he is found safely and can get some help. He is lucky to have a good friend like you.

I like the strategic position of that guy's collection bucket. :)

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. How awful! Hope he contacts one of you soon.

Btw, I love your photo...especially that guy on the corner sitting there all nonchalant while you and the man in tighty whities are posing behind him. Hilarious, chica!

I bet buff, nearly naked men were bothering you the entire time you were there. Poor Twin! *rolls eyes*

I hope your friend checks in soon.

Oh my. Is his position being held for him? Doesn't any of his family know where he might be? Do you believe, deep down, that he will be okay? Is there a police search involved? You are so sensitive that I know this is truly bothering you and I pray for his safe return.

Thinking of your friend.

Sure that guy didn't pop out of Abercrombie and Fitch for the photo? Did you ask him if he'd had his teeth whitened to match his pants?

RA said...

My thoughts are with your friend. Keep us posted, please. And hey, try to get some rest during the week end. :)

Riot Kitty said...

Thanks for the good thoughts, everyone...yes, I am really worried at this point, but hopefully he's just hiding out and will be OK.

For those of you who didn't see the other post, this guy and a woman in a tank top and tiny shorts were taking donations for Broadway Cares, a longtime charity run by Broadway actors and staff to raise money for AIDS research and treatment. It was money well spent ;)

Shionge said...

Hey I am so sorry to hear this and yes, fingers crossed that all is well with him

Mama Zen said...

I'm so sorry about your friend. Sending good thoughts!
