The Social Networking Debate and A Scheduling Note

No Cooking Tonight

We'll be making Matzoh Ball Soup for Rosh Hashanah next week!

I worked late tonight, came home, turned on the tube and headed right to the DVR to watch the Debate. I got it up and running and then launched Twitter. It was abuzz with debate chatter. I wish I were a sociologist or a political scholar or a statistician or a woman with ESP, because I’d like to analyze the Tweets. It seems to me that the overwhelming majority of tweets were in favor or Obama.

I’m Tired

I don’t know if it’s the trip to Vegas this weekend or if I am battling the Ebola virus that is going around, but I’m tired — pooped — exhausted — I need to get to bed and sleep it off. That said, I need to mention that Tenten is on his way to DC in 10 days and we plan to meet. He says he will not get on camera, which is a shame since viewers are curious. I’ll see what I can do. I am a pretty darn good saleswoman! :)

I will leave you with a gallery of shots of the DEElicious dinner we made tonight.

More From Blog World

City of Light?

A Blogworld vendor asks the question for which I have no answer

I am going to finish my “discussion” of Vegas and Blog World tonight.  I ended up publishing last night and realizing I had forgotten a few photos which led to another post tonight.  I am done though.  I promise!  I’ll be back to catching up a bit with Justin.tv and cooking another great meal live!

Vegas is billed as The City of Light. Perhaps not so much in the daytime. I had been to Vegas two times in the past and had stayed in hotels on the strip both times. This time using points I stayed at the Westin Hotel which is just off the strip. Next to the exit is an empty lot. It looks like it’s been empty for a while.

Setting Expectations

BlogWorld Expo ’08

The best meal I had in Vegas was at a surprising place -- the Flamingo Hotel Coffee Shop for brunch -- and I'm not talking about one of those über tourist buffets it was a menu-ordered brunch

I tend to do daydream — big — especially when I am seated in a plane and in airports for hours Unless I am hunkered down in a negative frame of mind, I daydream and imagine big things, things that make me smile. Things that inspire me and make me plug away.

Cheering for Runner Up Status! and a BlogWorld Expo ’08 Party

It’s All Good
I'm not sure how much of a Welcome to Vegas this guy is, but he was waiting for me in the airport this afternoon!

I'm not sure how much of a Welcome to Vegas this guy is, but he was waiting for me in the airport when I arrived this evening :)

I arrived at the airport this morning to see a couple of Tweets letting me know that the finalists for the Whole Foods Budget Recipe Challenge had been selected. I was very excited and thought I’d check my mailbox first because the contest registration documentation stated that finalists would be notified mid-September. Logic told me that if an announcement was posted that the finalists were selected that probably meant mail was probably waiting in their boxes.
