Between the election and the holidays it's been hard to get any movies made, but my lovely sat down this weekend and cranked out another classic! I hope you enjoy the many scenes of our 10 days on the west coast. We had a spectacular time and made some great memories, then again, I love every day no matter how big or small when my girl is by my side. Enjoy! Don't forget to pause the awesome song playing first!

Wicked is a musical with songs and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman. The story is based on the best-selling novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire. In 2004, Wicked was nominated for 10 Tony Awards and garnered trophies for Best Scenic Design, Best Costume Design, Best Book, and Best Actress in a Musical.
Wicked still runs at the Gershwin Theatre to SRO crowds for eight shows a week. The show recouped it's 14 million dollar investment in the first year, and continues to gross a million dollars weekly. A "Sold Out" sign is affixed to the theatre exterior. The show is currently on tour in many cities in the US and abroad.

I attended the Feminist Women's Health Center Awards Ceremony in Atlanta. Wowee of the Year 2008, Rachel Maddow was due to be in attendance, but unfortunately we only got a video appearance and I think it most likely had something to do with the fact that Robert Redford was live in her studio that night. Career-wise, Robert Redford will always win out for a journalist!
Instead, we were serenaded by the magnificent Phoebe Snow, and I was so fortunate to have had a nice conversation with David Bender, from Air America's Politically Direct. David excitedly gave me a white knot, and I couldn't have been more excited to pin it on.
I was also fortunate enough to speak with a new-to-me author named Jennifer Baumgardner about her books, her passion and love of Spanish Moss. I picked up Jennifer's book Abortion & Life and look forward to reading it this week.
Thank you to my friend the Rev for thinking of me when another ticket appeared. I am honored to have been a part.

- Citigroup gets a $300 billion dollar, poorly structured bailout from the government
- Citigroup proceeds to form a partnership with Morgan Stanley using said bailout money
- Citigroup now states that they will post a $10 billion dollar profit from the Morgan Stanley venture
- In November, Citigroup agreed to invest $10 billion in the transportation industry, and bought a toll road operation...in Spain
- Citigroup's CEO salary for 2009? $216 million or $108,000 per hour
- And my Citibank card with excellent credit has an interest rate of 27.9% which makes it impossible to use.
Okay, NOW it's all clear to me. I just needed it spelled out. S-C-R-E-W-E-D.
