For My Fellow Road Warriors

Even though I’m “retired” from the road, a part of my heart is always out there.  A friend recently shared this video with me and I love it.

Go ahead, open up yahoo.com and do a search for the term “wall.”  You know what you’ll get?  The number 1 image is a picture of a brick wall that I took a few years ago.  The isn’t particularly special or interesting, but somehow it made it to #1.  Here is the wall for you:

Hubby Hubby Ice Cream

I have always loved Ben and Jerry’s favor “Chubby Hubby.”  It contains CHOCOLATE COVERED PRETZELS FILLED WITH PEANUT BUTTER!!!  But now, I present you another reason to love this ice cream.

For one month only, Ben and Jerry’s has renamed and repackaged this yummy concoction to celebrate Vermont’s new legislature allowing Same Sex Marriage as of September 1, 2009.  So let’s all grab a pint this September and raise a spoon of “Hubby Hubby” to same sex marriage in Vermont!

While you’re at it visit the Freedom to Marry website.

President Obama

I was SO excited for President Obama’s Inauguration on Tuesday.  I have been wearing my Obama button faithfully since Election Night and was really looking forward to watching the Inauguration after work in the green room with an international group of artists and crew.

However, I got food poisoning or accidentally ate a bit of meat or something.  Starting in the middle of the afternoon and continuing on into the night, I got violently ill.  At 6pm here (noon EST), I was at the doctor’s office getting a shot of some wonder drug to make the vomitting stop.  By 9pm, I was able to drink water and keep it down.  Needless to stay, I was not celebrating the Inauguration.

I am very happy and proud that our country might finally be taking a political shift towards sanity and responsibility.   I am proud to have voted for Barack Obama and hope to do so again in 4 years.

I link here to my friend’s blog to show videos and text of the speech.

For Queen SaraToday

Hmm, how is my carnivorous friend SaraToday?  Is it still freezing, below freezing, really far below freezing?  Is everything white and gray and icy?  Bet you still have the cleanest safest driveway.

I recommend getting reusable instant hand wamers by Wonder Warmers.  I got sets for me and my NYC roommates at the Holiday Market at Columbus Circle.   Easy and fun to use.

Anyway, to brighten your day I present you with a flickr set dedicated to you and your flickr set from last year.

I miss you.
