rose sparkle : charliemc

Vamos Festival (and Rafa)!

(Happy Birthday, Rafa! Is that a banana in your throat, or are you just happy to see me?)

So, how can I catch up? I really can't, so I just need to move on.

I had a few too many adult beverages at last night's fireworks party. I was surprised how much fun I had, but then Kelly and Adrian came, so why not? I'm sure I went a bit far (hope I didn't scare the beautiful p.r. intern), but I did meet and greet some of the people I was supposed to. And the weather was perfect.

So far today is beautiful, but we're supposed to get more rain tonight and tomorrow. We'll see. We were supposed to have rain yesterday and last night, too, and it didn't materialize.

I just believe it's going to be a good year, all the way around.

Since MSN.com called us one of the top ten things to do all summer, things just seem to keep rolling. This was the most amazing media week I've ever had, almost overwhelming. And Rich and Jeff are both loving it, really rising to the occasion.

Aside from a slight hangover and sore feet, I'm feeling good today. I need to go into the office and get some stuff out, then I think I'll park, head down to the waterfront, then to the formation for the Starlight Parade at 6:00 or so. Just checked the front page of the paper, and the Starlight map is there (and they used the sponsor names, thank goodness!) What a difference a year makes! Last year on this date we had a color photo on the cover of the pissed off Buffalo Soldiers, and I spent most of the day dealing with negative press.

And I just read the editorial, and it was wonderful. Here's a quote Collapse )

In another day or two (or three or four), we'll start sliding into home. And it will be the winning run! (Whoops. Mixing my sports metaphors. I should have said sliding into the final winning topspin forehand!)
