She was a working girl, north of England way. Now she's hit the big time in the USA.
[Allan's stuff] I've uploaded the pictures from Allan Rothstein's estate sale at the lasfs clubhouse, 22-Aug-2004.

So Saturday afternoon (21-Aug-2004) saw us racing down from Temecula to Mission Valley. We found the temple that Ariel's Bat Mitzvah was held in, and we'd missed the service. No! But we got to hang out with Ariel and her family and friends. Some familiar faces from the usual suspects, so we had someone to talk to other than the immediate family... I hopped around shooting pictures, natch, and then eventually it was over.

library_lynn and Maria wanted to do a little shopping and get something to eat. We went to one of the Mission Valley malls, where they went inside (Nordstrom Rack, I think) while I sat outside and read/dozed. We had a late lunch/early dinner at On The Border where we once again ran into the marinated-meats problem... we figured it out in time, though, and library_lynn didn't have a stroke. It sort of defeated the purpose of getting a bite there, though -- we wanted to make sure she got something that she could safely eat before going on to the wedding reception...

Thomas and Johnna's wedding reception. Wow. It was held at the Women's Club in San Diego (I think) at Mission Beach. A local barbecue joint catered it. (Ironic, given that Thomas is a vegan, but they put on some vegan veggie burgers before putting the ribs and chicken on the barbie.) And they had a live swing band. Oh, it was a happening place. The decorations had a balloon motif, which was cute. We also all got wedding favors: a little tin of fridge magnets that the happy couple had made for us. All of them different. Mine had flamingos on them...

[Desperately trying to bring my LJ current with my photo uploading]

And then the next day was supposedly a memorial thing for Allan Rothstein at lasfs. Wasn't very thoroughly publicized. I got there late, by which time it had devolved into an auction to raise money for the club, selling off various items from Allan Rothstein's collection; apparently it was the wishes of the family that they be sold this way, instead of putting them up on ebay for the highest bidder. I came away with some Star Wars souvenirs (such as a Darth Vader corkboard I gave to Maria) and a few other oddments.

When I die, I don't want my memorial service to be a fundraiser for the club. You heard it here first...
