Event Gone Wrong...

For months at my part time job, we have been getting ready for an event today, Heroes of the Hemisphere. The event was hosted by Royal Caribbean for Pan American Development Group, an organization that focuses on raising money for Haiti, building schools, fixing water and sewer systems and trying to help the very poor people that live there. President Clinton and possible Hillary were supposed to attend, along with the President of Haiti and many dignitaries, Consuls, etc.. So, you can imagine the logistics involved with security, Customs and Border Protection for going onboard the ship and much, much more.

This past week, the Clintons definitely were not coming, then the President of Haiti dropped out and all the planning went out the window. There were some notables in attendance, Rainn Wison from The Office and Jimmy Jean-Louis, the Haitian from Heroes but the big draw was Tim Hardaway, Miami Heat player. I decided to get in line to get a picture with him, somthing I am never shy about doing. I look horrible becuase I am so tired, I could barely stand up by 4pm.



Big Website News...the basics of my website will be up on Monday, but the products will take a little longer. Take a peek though, it is so cute!
