A toast

edge_dancer's traditional toast: "Ladies and gentlemen, here's to the New Year -- and may it be a damn sight better than the last!"

And my own: My friends, may the coming year bring you all of what you need, enough of what you want, and as little as possible of that which is neither.

Another benefit auction

Lois McMaster Bujold books, autographed. Auction to benefit "S.J. Tucker, a.k.a. Sooj, musician and fun-inciter, [who] has been having unfortunate medical adventures lately, involving all sorts of alarums and excursions that are now pointing to appendicitis." Self-employed musicians typically don't have health insurance, and, well, hospital visits, tests, and probable surgery ain't cheap.
