Giving and Singing

Time’s People of the Year goes to the Global Givers: Bill & Melinda Gates and Bono for their work for the poorest countries (the Time website has it “Bono, Melinda and Bill Gates”, which kind of looks like Bono was adopted into the Microsoft family), and “Partners of the Year” to Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush for their tsunami and hurricane relief efforts.

Saw the Brooklyn Youth Chorus in their annual holiday performance. Someone at work had tickets that were shared with us. They were magnificient. Pictures on the flickr strip above.

Excellent Turkish food on Montegue Street: Kapadokya Turkish Cuisine, 142 Montague Street. Our old sushi favorite Nanatori on 162 Montague Street was great as usual. I guess I’ve officially became a regular there because I get recognized by the manager, and we always get seated in the window (business always picks up for her after we sit there).

Off to the boss’ holiday party tonight…

  1. Bill and Melinda Gates and Bono? Oh well. I was really hoping Mother Nature got it as Entity of the Year, but Time probably figured she got enough attention on a daily basis. Personally, though, I think Bill and Melinda and Bono have a lot to go before they save the world. But, I suppose what they do is a start.
