I had a very rare opportunity yesterday that I jumped all over.
I got to meet my internet heroine.The lady that inspired me to start this damn Blog in the first place,years ago.If you don't know who this lady is, you either don't watch television, use the internet or live in a cave.
She is just a sweetheart. She has about ten things commanding her attention at any one time but takes the time to talk to folks and really listens.
I got to meet a few other people there too, it was at the National NORML convention in Portland.
They are trying to get weed legalized, have been for years but it is looking like a real possibility.
This is Teddy Partridge, one of the contributors at FDL I have yakked back and forth with for years, hell of a nice guy too. Hell, everyone there was nice and very polite!
We all had a great time.
The event is being held at the Governors Hotel in downtown Portland, a fancy old place. It cracked me up to see these formal doormen opening the doors for all of these stoned out of their gourd hippies.
I went up to the second floor where all of the display booths were and when I got off the elevator all I could smell was skunk weed.
I went looking for a rest room and stuck my head in this room at the end of the hall and got knocked over. There was a bunch of people in this room just smoking out.
That would explain a lot, I almost got a contact high just sticking my head in there!
Anyway, I had a good time and like I said, everyone was real nice.
I chatted with Jane for a while and then waited while she went up to the fourth floor to watchone of the speakers that she was highlighting at FDL.
While she and Teddy were gone, I manned the booth for a while and had people fill out a petition and gave away stickers and pins for their trouble. Did I mention there were little cuties all over the place? Oh yeah.
Jane finally came back and got busy again, people are always coming up and talking to her and when that isn't going on she has her nose in her laptop doing something or other, like I said, she is a busy lady. Sweet, quick to smile, genuine and has beautiful sparkling blue eyes.We sat and talked for quite a while, I think I was there over three hours.
Yep, I had a great time.
