Long time no see!
It’s been awhile. I know, I know. A lot has been going on. We had the DNC in town last week, which was pretty cool. Lots of big black SUVs with government plates, newscasters everywhere, and oh yeah the President was in town as well. It doesn’t matter which way you swing in the political sphere it was a big deal here. All eyes were on our small city, which rarely happens. So I kind of took that week off of life and spent as much time as I could downtown stalking political celebrities.
All I saw were super excited delegates, none of whom I recognized because well, they’re delegates. They’re normal people. I was looking for Joe Biden, for Michelle Obama. Shit I would have settled for Sarah Palin!
Anyway, I didn’t blog, I didn’t edit photos, I didn’t do anything but become a political junkie.
The DNC has left, the dust has settled and I’m ready for work.
I’ve finished scanning all of my photos of the trip. Thats right. ALL OF THEM! Woo Hoo!! I don’t remember if I did a blog about that when it happened. If I did, my apologies. But it’s so exciting, it needed to be said twice.
What do I do now? Well, onwards to the book!
Valerie and I had what will now be a weekly meeting on Tuesday. It’ll be weekly because Whole Foods has $2 glasses of wine on Tuesday.
It was quite a productive meeting and we both left with high hopes, and a little buzz. We’re meeting again tomorrow night to work on our book and to draft up a proposal for the publishers we’re submitting to.
**If any reader out there is friends with a publisher, knows one, sleeps with one, or has passed one in the street,
please let us know. We haven’t done any of the above (that we’re aware of)**
While I did take photos of the DNC, you guessed it! They are film and have yet to be developed.
But while you’re waiting, please check out our website because we’ve uploaded more of our trip photos! Not all of them by any means. (Let’s be realistic people. It took me two months just to scan them all in)
And in conclusion, I leave you with some sound advice from the Great Houdini
