I just did the same thing in the elevator that I overheard on the train this morning.
I get on and see this woman dressed exactly like Stella from Project Runway and say to her, “Cool! Stella, right?” and she looks at me blankly and says, “No.”
I ask, “But that is a costume, right?” feeling my foot in my mouth and thankfully she says, “Yeah… I guess. I am dressed as my rock-n-roll avatar” and I tell her, “Well, that is pretty much who Stella is” and thank God my floor came just then.
Awkward! It almost felt like asking a large woman when she is due to have her respond icily that she is not pregnant.
Palin spoke after touring Xunlight Corp., one of a handful of solar technology startup companies in Toledo, a struggling industrial city in this swing state. The city’s leaders are hoping that the solar companies will create jobs to replace some of those lost by downsizing in the auto industry.
But Palin made only a passing reference to solar power in her speech and instead renewed her call for more drilling in U.S. coastal waters. She repeated her signature anthem, “drill, baby, drill,” which seemed to fall a bit flat on the audience at the plant even as it’s become a popular chant at her rallies.
We had a fire drill this morning where the two connected office towers I work in fully evacuated and everyone assembled by floor in a public square in China town. It was really funny watching two office towers worth of Financial Services executives filling in this square that normally is empty save for elderly Chinese men gambling and the occasional school group.
"In another blow to the Republican ticket, President George W. Bush also said that McCain was too closely associated with the disastrous policies of the last eight years, and that somebody had to do something about the terrible mess out there in Iraq."
…Worse than my usual drunk texts where I write “good” instead of “home” (damn T9 word) and “he” instead of “if”, etc. and what was meant to be “I’m on my way home, if you get this soon, come over” becomes “I’m no my way good, he you get this soon bond over.”
