What a day. I was one of the few at class this morning, and we started a new book-I Write What I Like by Steve Biko. So good. You may have seen Denzel play him in Cry Freedom. I did (sorry Balz) cut class this afternoon to take the fam down to the Phillies parade! (photo set here)
Then we got back and ate, got ready to go to Northern Libs and meet up with Jesse/Lo/Ruke/Janey, Marni/Sage/Fern, Marlee/Oli, Brandi/Elisha, Kristin/Sammy, Jeff/Lola…and Reece’s PB Cups. A few photos in the set here.
Today was the second time in a month that Helena said “this was the best day ever.” Maybe that is just her thing to say right now, but I agree that we’ve been having a blast.
This one goes out to all those people who had their cars flipped over or smashed in (I saw a car all busted up at Broad & Ellsworth today), to the statue of the Man Holding the Umbrella, to the postal carriers who had their boxes knocked over, to the parents in Mayfair who couldn’t get their babies to bed, to the poor young ladies who were flashing teenagers Mardi Gras style, and to Joey Mahoney’s Russian neighbor who really did not know what was going on. Sorry about last night.
Sorry about the frat boys jumping through fire on Broad Street, for the luggage store getting robbed, and sorry about that Jeanne Zelasko. I founda a bunch of youtube videos here-not great quality, but this guy was really bummed about the situation and was in the right place at the right time.
The AP actually called the outburst last night minor, although many personal stories would say otherwise. My one friend made the observation that so many of the people doing idoiotic things came in from out of town to trash the place. It made him want to go up to Wayne, PA, and do some “celebrating”!
I do love that Bud Selig (MLB Commissioner) got booed when he gave Charlie the WS Trophy.
I’m glad I was at home, and I had an AMAZING time last night! And I can’t wait to take the kids to BW tomorrow!
