My friend Lalla Lydia shares photographs from a unique protest of sorts going on at Portland State University (Washington).
I admittedly have neglected my blog since returning from Miami but ah, with good reason, for I have been reviewing restaurants for a new site (I’ll announce more when it launches), attending meetings for various ventures and going out more often than I usually do. The most exciting event this weekend? Running into none other than Jennifer Garner at the Wang Center (no, I will not refer to it as the Citi Performing Arts Center, thankyouverymuch) where I was working Saturday night. I didn’t say hi, as I think it’s generally tacky to assume a celebrity is interested in what you have to say, but I did get close enough to see how beautiful her skin is! Seriously, she has tremendous skin! Hamza, who isn’t even thrilled by her as an actress, was impressed.
Also, in other news of distraction, we finally got cable (and internet that we pay for, rather than the free kind that we steal from our neighbors, shh!)
In case you’re not in yet, I’ll leave you with this, my new obsession: Yelp!
I considered liveblogging the primaries for a moment or two – then it occurred to me that it’s 11:00 pm EST and really – who is reading my blog right now? Certainly no one in Morocco (it’s 4 am there – if you’re up, go to bed!), doubtful anyone on the east coast…Probably no one at all.
I worked for nearly 12 hours today, finally leaving (an event) at 9:00 pm tonight and getting home just after 10:00; needless to say, I’m exhausted, but I stayed awake hoping that there would be some news…and so far, the most exciting thing is that Huckabee finally dropped out (and I mean that in no offense to Huckabee – a) because he hardly stood a chance and b) because anyone who can garner the support of Chuck Norris is cool with me).
Anyhow, hardly any news – I’m disappointed. I suppose I was hoping for the best – that is, that Obama beat out Hillary. No such luck…yet.
