< < < First off I have to say a special Happy Birthday to my arch nemesis and
big bro, N8 Dogg. I wish
him all the best and many more "n8 day's" to come.
Dance Night Out
Last Thursday I was lucky enough to be invited by Tony & Serena to a friend's dance performance
at the Dance Space Center in SOHO.
We arrived there with enough time to meet up with other friends before showtime. I was introduced to Tony's friend, Tim
and his lovely mother. Her and I may end up going to Queen's College together. I also met Jen & Greg.
Greg is taking motorcycle instruction classes soon - him and I talked a little about my days in Miami and desired motorcycles.
Jen is a bright-eyed sweetie who loves to talk and has a great sense of humour.
So showtime arrived and I wasn't sure if I was gonna get a seat along with all the cool people I met.
Space was limited and the due to the seating plan, I was split up from my new group. Just when I sat in my
seat, I noticed that I could sit on the floor right up at front on some cushions. I thought that would be much
more comfortable than to sit on a steel chair for 2 hours. So Jen, Greg and myself went right to the front and
seated ourselves right on the floor. Besides me, there were these two really cute girls.
Their names were Posy & Lauren. Posy was the first one to talk to me asking if I was a dancer,
and I told her that I wasn't a professional, but I can dance. After 20 more questions, we both found out
that this was our first time being here and we knew nobody performing that night.
During each performance, everyone in attendance viewing the show was given a piece of paper to write
feedback about the choreography, dance movements, etc. There were 8 seperate performances in all.
Unfortunately, there was no flash photography allowed. So I was unable to take any pictures of the
amazing dance performances that I witnessed that evening. I could only use my camera after the show.
So I did.
Below are the photos I took outside the dance studio after the performance. Maylin Hago, Michael Kidney,
and Jennifer Medina all performed "His Sadness" which was choreographed by Jessica Hoch.
This was the debut performance of "The J. Hoch Dance Company".

My little sister, Angie in Miami, sent me this photo of her as she was dressed up as "Elvira" for Hallowe'en.
( No, this is not what she looks like all the time! ) She is a little sweetie. It looks like she put
a lot of effort into this. Unlike me this year, I wasn't dressed up at all. I was just on my way home from Connecticut that night.
Maybe next year I'll get all dressed up and participate in the Hallowe'en Parade in Greenwich Village here in New York.
Or... who knows where I'll be next year. I could be back in Toronto going to "Screamers" at Exhibition Place like I did every year with
the rest of my nWo Toronto crew.
If you have a pic of your Hallowe'en costume this year that you'd like to share, don't hesitate to send it!

According to "The Guinness Book Of World Records 2003", the most expensive credit card to own
is the American Express Centurion. (aka The Black Card)
This card has a $1000/year annual fee and you must earn
a minimum of $215,000 a year to even qualify for it. This is a card that you cannot apply for, its by invitation only!
The card is designed for individuals who travel frequently, eat out and like to entertain. So for those "ballers"
who are posing with their Gold and Platinum cards - that means nothing, until you have the BLACK card.
cK's Weekly Thought
If you haven't noticed by now, my website needs a little redesign to get ready for 2003. But unfortunately,
I don't have my computer with all my magic software to produce it. It is still left in Florida where its
currently collecting dust. Due to recent demand for my web skillz, I may have to return to Florida briefly
via a rental car to pick up my stuff. I also have lots of my winter clothes in Orlando that is doing me no use there.
I really need them as New York is beginning to get more and more chilly as the days go by. I know that when
or if I make this return trip to Florida, my little mom will try to keep me and make me stay again. That can't happen now.
I really need to break free and maintain some distance.
In other news, my best friend N8 Dogg just celebrated his birthday. When I broke free from Florida, part of the
idea was to return to Toronto just in time to make it there to help N8 celebrate. But, that didn't happen.
I'm still here in New York. If I had the money in time, I would have flown up to see him and just party with him
one day, then return to New York. But him too, wouldn't let me leave --- he'd keep me in Toronto. Now this is where
I'm torn. I love Toronto, and I also love Miami... but New York is just so far a learning adventure. I can actually
see myself build something here in the future. I want to live here for a few more months before I know what I want to do.
I still say to my heart that I will return to Toronto, and I know I will... the only question is when?
I don't know if I will be as warmly welcomed there when I do decide to come back as if I did now, but when I
do, at least I'll have 2 other places to go back to if Toronto decides that I'm no longer one of their own.
