Hurray for passed deadlines

All my copy is in, all the photos I need have been taken, and after a super-crunch deadline week (compounded by the fact I did zero work over the Chinese New Year holiday, but for interviewing Usher at 3am one night), last night my first event I put on for the magazine went off at a really nice bar on The Bund.

Erotic Fiction Night - we had finalists read the Shanghai-based erotic stories they'd written. We'd planned for a crowd of 60 or so, and more than 200 people showed up, which was a really nice little ego boost.

After work I took a half-hour walk into the French Concession in order to get a beer and a pork sandwich at my favorite Vietnamese restaurant.

Ah, thank goodness for Friday night.
