Today, I met the "Aluminum Man". For lack of a better description ("Aluminum Seller" perhaps?), that is what I will call him.

While sitting on the stoop smoking, I saw a man rummaging through my neighbor's recycling. He took an aluminum bar. Then, he told me why he does it.

Apparently, he makes enough for a beer and has a little left over ... every Friday.

I sense some business opportunities here.

I need a nap.

T minus 2 hours until I go to the New York Hilton for tonight's festivities ...

So, here's the PR wrap-up for you ...

- Photographers (many)
- TV crews (some)
- Journalists (an intimate group from the creme de la creme of New York's gossip pages)
- Floor plans (check)
- Contact lists (check)
- Artists' photos (Yes, we do need to know how some of these people look now)

Time for a smoke? I should think so.

I'll be at the New York Hilton from 4 to 10ish PM by the way. Mobile will be on vibrate. Brain will be hyped up on caffeine.

Maybe, I'll be in the background of some photos!

Check out Bluejake's photos from the Subway show at Hermes and you can find me, in a blue shirt, with Fab 5 Freddy.

Yes, you're jealous.

By the way, my little blog experiment has been noticed. Amy and Nichelle, my first readers.

I had no idea TMFTML was at Lindsay's Ritalin Reading Series last night. You can say hi, you know. I don't bite and I won't blab your identity to "Page Six". Personally, I'm just gunning for a karaoke-night invite.

Next up, the T. J. Martell Foundation's 29th Annual Awards Gala. Loads of work, but it's for a good cause.

Anybody interested in joining me? I've got some prime seats up in the balcony. Perfect for a view of the scheduled performances by ... Stevie Wonder, Indie Arie, Joan Osborne, and others. Whaddaya think?

Good evening, all ...

It's been a busy day.

As of this morning, I was expecting around 236 guests for The Week at Grand Central. According to my best guestimate, around 200 showed up.

Luckily for those of you not able to attend. Amy Langfield. Anonymous Outsider, Culture Kitchen, HereIType. and, of course, Jeff Jarvis blogged the whole shebang. Jeff even did it live. Impressive since we couldn't get him a phone line to jack into. (Phone line? Who uses those anymore?).

Then, I started shifting into high gear for The Week's next adventure in the panel discussion sphere, their CEO dialogue at The Four Seasons. (Almost time to hang with Julian Niccolini again. I know, you're envious. And no, he's not going to invite me into the clear canoe.)

To try to relax, I stopped by a knitting group at the Greenwich Village Bistro. No, no knitting for me. Just a beer and a burger.

Ah, the ever-eventful life of a PR person.

Should I just ask her and get it over with?

Yesteday, I spent three hours at a soup kitchen. For those of you who know me, you must be asking, "Who is she?" ::chuckle:: So, rather than beat around the bush, I'll just come out and tell you. [CLASSIFIED]. [CLASSIFIED].

When she asked me to go with her to the soup kitchen and on a trip to South Jersey and the Shore to research an article she's writing, how could I say no?

We spent the whole day together! The whole day. We had a fine old time. We even got to drive around in a red Mustang that Hertz was kind enought to provide us with.

Things I have learned today (II):

1. When the power goes out in your apartment unexpectedly and you don't know where your the circuit breaker is, you better pray the power comes back on.

Things I have learned today:

1. Don't mention a person's former colleague as their claim to fame when they don't get along with that person anymore.
2. Don't expect someone to reply to your calls/e-mails/IMs right away WHEN THEY JUST MET YOU.
