What aspect of the AMG will be a first for you?  For D and I, this will be our first trip to S.F.

My first time in California- outside of landings at SFO and LAX. 

Also my "first time" seeing my friend Beth in about 15 years.  She lives about 30 miles out from SF and plans to come into town to see me at some point during the visit. 

Everything's going according to plan so far!  I woke up this morning with the beginnings of a cold sore- right on schedule! 

I want to look my herpetic best, ya know.

More specifically, it'll be my first time in CA.  This will also be our first time seeing a prison inside... unless David's been keeping secrets.  ;)  I was thinking specifically about you, Nadine, having never flown.  I would suggest perhaps having a few tranquilizers on hand (Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, etc just in case).  It'll also be our first time seeing Tim clothed!   :o

My first time attending an AM gathering, and first time to meet most of you in person, which I am really looking forward to most of all.  I've been to SF many times before, albeit mostly for work -- though it's probably been about 7 years since my last visit.

1) first trip I've taken at 50 years of age !

2) first time I've celebrated 20 years of living with HIV!  (will let you know when the 40th anniversary rolls around......)

3)  first time to meet some forum friends who weren't there last year...especially Melia, Rodney, Nadine, Tim, Dennis....

4) first time to CA since Arnold is Governator! (I was in S.F. at Gay Pride in '02)

5) first time I get to give 5 or 6 birthday greetings IN PERSON !
