Are you sitting down?
Anyway, I have big news!
Last night I got a call from my cousin Butch (hereafter known as the best cousin a girl could have or BC). Well, BC had donated 250.00 to the Clinton campaign in order to attend a breakfast with the candidate. AND HE COULDN'T GO! So, would I mind filling in for him?
Well, OK. I'm all about the family.
So, I went to the Hyatt Regency this morning, and who is introducing Senator Clinton?
That's right. . .
Yes, my friends,
Of course, the 250.00 tickets were the cheap seats (read, no seats at all--we just stood in the back), so most of my pictures of Senator Clinton ended up looking like this.
Yes, that is a man with thinning hair in front of the senator.
Before the speeches, I heard a rumor that Gloria Steinem was going to be speaking at Justin's Ice Cream Parlor later in the day.
So I high-tailed it down there and I met Gloria Steinem.
It was love at first sight. We laughed, we cried, she invited me to live with her in New York.
Okay, I could barely stammer out that I was honored to meet her, but it was still great!
Here I am with my new BFF.
Both women were stunningly beautiful, exciting, and inspiring.
I am a very happy girl.
I apologize for the general suckiness of the photos, but I had to share this with you.
