It has gotten to the point where I bring a clan of friends from MA to the event. One year, 2 friends, next - 5, etc. Our group this year was 12 (+ 2 when we arrived!). Unfortunately, I was not at 100% and did not enjoy lobsterfest to the fullest extent. (No drinking, plus an exit at 6:45, to return to Archie's at 8:30)
Even though I felt sick, everyone else had fun, which is the important part!
Look out Lobsterfest, here we all come...
We are great at posing for pictures. What is Jen doing?

I was talking to a fellow Obama supporter recently and realized that just voting for him in November isn't enough. I really don't think it will be in this country's best interest to have McCain run it for 4 years, and cannot just sit back and hope people figure that out. I was displeased when Bush* was elected**, and devastated when he was re-elected.***
So, I need to browse Obama's site and figure out how to get involved and help make people aware.

And, since I'm such a bum, I'm super boring and haven't done a thing. Not even all my laundry, which I have said I was going to finish since Saturday. Ugh.

The law originated when lawmakers in many states were trying to prevent interracial couples from crossing state lines to marry. It fell into obscurity for decades. But it received new attention in 2004, when Republican Governor Mitt Romney invoked it after gay marriage was legalized in Massachusetts to prevent out-of-state gay and lesbian couples from marrying here and forcing their home states to consider recognizing Massachusetts marriage law."

Weekend plans: Tonight - dinner w/ a friend. Tomorrow - possible beach day, perhaps going w/ a friend to her husbands softball game, driving to Vernon, CT to see my cousins play at 7pm. Sunday - Softball double header at 6 and 8pm. Semi quiet and relaxing, but not boring!
I'm off now to make sure we are all set with our orders for the shoot in LA next week. Oh and some billing fun. 1:30 cannot come fast enough.

I spent the 4th of July weekend in CA with Heather, Erik, Evie, and Heather's friend Cristin. We drove to Santa Cruz, where we hung out at the beach, grilled, and had a fun, relaxing weekend. Perfect!

*** the elusive plane has landed. I think someone actually cheered.***
We boarded the plane, sat on it for 45 min and then were told it wouldn't take off til 7:30. I thought - 1. there is no way I will make my connection in Chicago. 2. If I stay on this plane, I might not get to CA til tomorrow. So, while on board, and in the process of de-planing, I called United, and asked for any other way to get to San Fran. They booked me on a flight through DC, and while I was in line to print that ticket, I got a call from United. The Chicago flight was cancelled. I saw the entire plane line up at customer service and was grateful for cell phones and the 1800 customer service number! Needless to say, I got to San Fran by midnight, almost hassle free.
I think airports are one of my favorite places. There is so much to watch and people are generally amusing.For example, people really freak out about delays and not getting what they want right away. Sometimes, things get to a point when you really cannot control what happens and you have to wait it out. I guess if you are trying to get somewhere important or have been traveling for a while your patience wears thin. I'm actually surprised I am so patient with airlines, considering I have to work hard to remind myself to be patient sometimes.
