My sister's at the DNC!!!! Follow her every move if you're cool at twitter.com/meredithtwhite .
So, I've been out and about lately. I went to Chicago in the beginning of August for a wedding of a girl I can't remember not knowing (our mom's are BFFs).
...and I rode a "seg-way" on a lovely tour of downtown.
As I tell everyone who asks -- it was not at all embarassing.
not even a little! I felt cool! Everyone at the music festival (lollapalooza? I forgot which one it was already) was like, high fiving me and really encouraging our whole be-helmetted party. It wasn't surreal at all. (full disclosure, it was somewhat fun)
I went to a look at a house.
Went to a music festival.
found some funny pictures (was then reminded I was going to try to think more visually -- b/c its pretty fun/useful, actually -- especially when you're playing JUMBO NINTENDO - but also for work, i guesssss) .... went to a cool coffee shop,the stone spiral , visited the shopcat at the firecracker press, went rollerskating , where I saw some crazy acrobatics .
I broke (temporarily) my batman rollerskates, but it was worth it.
I went on the moonlight ramble.
My job had some crazy intern activities .
I went on a little adventure across the river with friends, , one being Miss Kelsey, who's started writing for the rft event blog (!), and she's doing an amazing job. :) I saw a kick-ass open mic end its days at one place --(now it's moved a block down the road) - cool.
I saw a hilarious license plate, and found some old pictures from the summer after my junior year at penn () and halloween senior year . So random, and taken on REAL FILM.
I scanned in some kooky/classic old pictures of myself and others! (it needed to be done!)
and my grandma in Tijuanna.
and last but not least, check out the beginning of my brilliant artist-mom (who's busy crafting costumes for the music man at Stages! amazing), and her masterful pumpkin carving hobby.
Using the words "carving" and "hobby" seems to make it less of a big deal that those are the EXACT images of the Beatles there in orange and "pumpkin rind."
My favorite is Paul. There, I've said it! Ask me why, I've given it plenty of thought.
Also in work-news, we're launching the project I've been working on all summer in less than a month.
And the Olympics!
Conclusion? I am not bored. So much more ahead, too!
(sub conclusion -- i need to blog more, this all-in-one digest business is for the birds!)
