CONVENTION update

Quckie post as I don't have access to any computer or upload feature for my pictures. My laptop has decided to go on vacation without me.

If you don't have credentials in this town, you shouldn't have shown up! Security is tighter than a _____________ fill in your own visual!

I'm knitting up the Audacity Yarn I received from Blackbunnyfibers.com. I decided to do a pair of Dashing and I'm hoping I can slip them to Michele Obama before the big speech on Thursday. I finished up one glove while at the convention on yesterday. I was at the Pepsi Center from noon until nearly 11pm!

I'm staying at the Marriott Hotel, the same hotel as the Chicago delegation so the entire place has been transformed into an Obama oasis! Everything for sale in Denver, it seems, has something to do with Obama - I saw Obama water, Obama sunglasses, Obama suits and ties... If you were a silk screen genius, you would have made a mint here!

I can't imagine how I'm going to ship all of this crap back home. I have these giant Michele polls that were being waved around as she spoke. I have Kennedy posters, Change posters, Yes We Can posters... maybe I can sell off my dirty clothes to make room in my luggage??

Ok, going to go right now. Today at the convention, I'll beg a media person to use their laptop to upload some pictures. Wish me luck!

P.S. Check out the Jon Stewart show tonight. My college son just txt me to say that he and a bunch of other Pages did some kind of skit involving Healing - the theme for the convention tonight!

I told everyone ...if you see some one at the convention from N.J. who's knitting...she's my knitting friend :)

Good luck finding a way to get all your stuff home...maybe you could mail it?

Have fun and I sure hope you get those gloves to Michelle...she'll love you forever :)

Cool!
You're at the convention. It's a little frustrating to be here in town and not be able to take part in any of the festivities.
If you get a chance go buy a replica of the Big Blue Bear - the coolest convention schwag in town! (my friend's husband is the artist heh heh) I'll be at her booth in front of the conventions center (not the Pepsi center) on Thurs noonish if you get a chance... Maybe I'll bring my knitting too.
Have fun while you're here! I hope Denver is being kind to you!
