star struck

even though i've talked to him, have the cell number for his manager and can email him at a moments notice, i am still star struck by him and the fact that he was part of our film festival in May.

eerie that i'm watching his 'exit' episode -- but i still will follow his career and can see him going far.

it's 2:00 am - do you know where your children are?

it's as if my parents are away for the weekend and i'm pulling a 'Risky Business' kind of night.

2:35 am to be exact and i'm chilling on my recliner bed doing more wedding stuff on thE computer while observing what Soul Train was like circa "JAMES INGRAHAM!" -- (...who?)

there WERE a lot more white people on ST back in the day; observation #2: everyone's all covered up!

Bill Moyers Journal

Back to school!

{ or at least I wish I was. }

evidence that 18 months is too long to have a planner:

(yes, those are staples holding together the back flap in my moleskine.)

(hopefully by the 2nd to last week of 2008, I won't have to look at this page.)

Though 1 thing I do love is that within these 18 months of planning contain the 18 craziest months of my entire 28 3/4 years on this planet.

left my heart in Minneapolis


and yum.
Ethnic communities and enclaves are staples in many American states and cities. But Minnesota's cultural identity, which has been shaped by multiple refugee movements from Africa and Asia, is particularly unique. We talk with active members of Minnesota's Somali and Hmong communities, both of which have grown out of political strife on other continents.
