Congrats on the awards, Amy, and keep up the great work.

What did you wear, by the way? Don't we get a photo!?

Drat...I think we forgot to take one. I wore a black fishtail long skirt (so fishtail I couldn't walk too fast because it was rather tight in the knees), and a black sleeveless shirt and a bright lavender men's ruffled tuxedo shirt, bought at an SF vintage store, tied behind my back. With typewriter key cufflinks! And lavender earrings Arianna tried to kill me for at Andrew Gumbel's book party so she could wear them to the Grammy's. "But, dahlink, they go so vell with my dress."
