One thing I try to never do here, is voice my political opinions. Well, there is this one story that I've been meaning to tell you about - when Miss Lucy and I bumping into Mitt Romney, in a hotel lobby in New Orleans during the last presidential election. Miss Lucy was wearing her OBAMA bandanna. The gasp heard from the crowd was priceless.
And there is this other story - about how I made my own OBAMA buttons and hand delivered them in 6 different states. One of them was mailed to a friend in Hawaii and hand delivered to Senator Inouye. He wore it at a democratic convention (see Steve's Inauguration Travel Log).
that's my button! the smaller one, under the bigger one
But I'll save those stories for another day. Today I am heading into the city to meet my dear Monkey Girl friend and her friend. I'll also be swinging by Time Square to take part in a massive convergence in solidarity. Today, as most of you know, is World Day of Action.
There will be music, performances and a big message - that the people of this country, not the banks, not corporate american - hold the true power.
Because I'm opinionated, bossy, and do not handle direction or barricades well (see story Whats Wrong With Me), I realize there is a slight chance that I might get arrested.
To prepare for this possibility, I gave the cat her catnip, shaved my legs, and put on Spanx. I wonder if laptops are allowed in the slammer?
So, if I don't post for a day or two or 20, don't worry. I am fine. I'm with my people - my outspoken, I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore, people.
Today, I'll be joining thousands of you, in hundreds of cities across the country, in support of this movement. For me, once again, its about HOPE and a new vision for the future.
Together we are the tipping point.
