1. Faiza, Marianne, and Micaela are coming to San Francisco in early May for a girls' trip/stalking mission! Marianne has as obsessive a personality as I do, and she's got quite the crush on new Angels' pitcher CJ Wilson. Because I, of all people, understand the irresistible urge to stalk hot celebs, I perked up when she suggested that we trek down to LA to see an Angels game (and also find out where he is staying/stake out at his favorite sushi bar/etc.).
Fortunately for Marianne, CJ has already tweeted her twice (!!!), so we're not exactly starting from scratch. In any case, I can't wait to see my girls! Any LA peeps willing to bail us out if we get arrested for trespassing?
*p.s. Might I point out that Charlie Hunnam, aka Jax Teller, resides in LA?
2. My dear friend Truong's new art show is opening tonight after months of grueling preparation:
Truong is a brave ass poet-turned-artist whose work will have you gawking & thinking for days. The opening reception is tonight at SOMArts from 6-9, so if you're in the Bay Area, swing by!
3. I'm finally reading The Help (takes me longer than most with these well-hyped books) and I don't want to do anything but stay in bed and read all day. It's SO GOOD. Such a great feeling to be so immersed in a book. Now I'm afraid anything I read next won't live up to it!
4. Susan G. Komen wised up and reversed their horrible decision. Looks like there is still work to be done, but it's progress. Let this be evidence that loud public outcry, petition-signing, etc. can be incredibly effective!
Happy Superbowl Weekend! Wish I cared about either of the teams playing. :)
