Meeting Montgomery & Other Bits
Thanks to everyone who posted birthday wishes yesterday. I actually don't feel 39, nor am I having a mid-life crisis...yet. Don't worry, the moment I have one I'll be blog about it.
My co-workers took me out to lunch at one of my favorite spots, Manuel's Tavern. Yesterday was the first cool day we've had and you could feel a snap in the air. I had a big bowl of Brunswick Stew (yummy!) and some of Manuel's to-die-for cheese sticks. Today, the temperature was back in the 80s. I want autumn now!
Best part of my birthday was finally meeting the great Montgomery Maxton. I raced to the Atlanta airport and we met in the atrium for about 25 minutes before he had to dash off and make his connecting flight to San Francisco. MM filmed me with his Flip camera and I'm now a YouTube celebrity. You can see the video below. Lord, I look so much better in black and white... I took some photos with my phone but can't seem to get Bluetooth to connect with the Macbook, so I'll post 'em when I can get them out of my phone. Damn, I really want an iPhone.
CNN is reporting that Obama is up in the polls nationwide. Hooray! CNN has been doing a "poll of polls" where it aggregates all the various numbers. The McPalin bounce is over and old John made a serious gaffe this week on the economy. Lipstick Barracuda is under close scrutiny after she refused to comply with the investigation over "trooper-gate."
