Oh, I’m so not that brave.
I’ll never be THAT brave.
I seriously want to thank all of you who did not lash out at me after my political post this week. Yes, a few of you were uncharacteristically silent but I respect that completely. And I appreciate all the amazing, insightful, supportive comments. Even those of you who see a different future for this country.
For those of you who wondered, Barack Obama did not actually leave a comment on my post. Just a man who looks very much like him.
So now that I’m on a political roll – or more accurately a political obsession with the presidential race – how about McCain’s choice for Vice President?
As a woman, I’m extremely proud.
As a political junkie, I love an unexpected, interesting choice that brings frenzied excitement to a close presidential race.
As a now-professed Obama supporter, I’m not sure whether this move helps or hurts the Democrats’ campaign. It will be fascinating to watch. I told you. I’m obsessed.
As a native Alaskan, I am – oh wait, that’s not me.
My husband thinks Governor Sarah Palin is a hottie. But he wants to see her minus the bobby pins, with her hair down and her glasses off. I do think the 44 year-old could look A LOT hipper and more stylish.
Of course, probably also the case for 65 year-old Senator Joe Biden.
Still, I just want to be on record as saying, a cute cut, sassy blow-out and chic outfit never hurt anyone. Yeah Biden, I’m talking to you too.
By the way, after my apparently misguided assertion that “there is more to life than Starbucks,” a Starbucks representative invited me to a Better Breakfast Hour in New York City – “an opportunity to chat with other bloggers about breakfast trends and the importance of starting off your morning with a healthy routine.”
Wouldn’t kicking my caffeine addiction be a really super healthy way to start off my morning?
The Starbucks rep sweetened the offer by promising free Wi-Fi service on the day of the event. Ok. Pardon my lack of enthusiasm, but I thought Starbucks had finally started offering free Wi-Fi in all its coffee shops.
I’m not a PR whiz, but how about a free $15 coffee card? Now that’s change I can believe in.
I think I may have just gotten uninvited.

Now I have one more reason to adore Mommy Poppins. She has been working with Seneca Houses, an organization that provides temporary housing for homeless families in NYC. There are 100 children living in their apartments who desperately need school supplies for this coming year.
