Leaving for DC!!!


I am so sorry for my infrequent posts lately! For what it's worth, i'm working on a few great pieces including bullying among girls, future directions of the feminist movement, and tolerance.

BUT first thing's first: I AM LEAVING FOR D.C. TOMORROW MORNING!!! D and I are headed down to stay with my bestest friend, Jackie, for the week.

Will you be at the inauguration? What are your Obama celebration plans, in D.C. or otherwise?

If you see a freezing cold Russian girl in a red coat, say hello ;)

So jealous.

Have a safe trip and a good time while you're in D.C.

I will (probably) be skipping class to watch the festivities...here in the arctic that is the Midwest.

I'll be looking for you among the millions on TV. Wave and wink! My plans are to work. I may be able to catch the speech before I leave for my office. If not, I may turn on NPR and suggest my clients and I do an hour's worth of meditation!

I'm so excited for you! I really cannot wait to hear about your experience. Stay safe and warm!

Also - I'm curious to hear your take on the Obama on the cover of Ms. magazine. Couple of places I've been checking it out:

My first thought is - "It's an inauguration special - who else should be on the cover but the president to be?!"

I am looking forward to your blog posts! I've missed them. We can discuss more on the 30th when I see you next!
