I’m still here.

Just very busy with work and taking care of the dog while Jason is visiting family in Florida this week. One of the perks of working for a major non-profit org of a popular cause is Special Events. Events are a big deal, and they make everyone nervous and excited and stressed out. Tonight is the private reception and viewing of the King Tut exhibit at LACMA. Newly elected Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa will be among the speakers! And a good number of celebs are going to be in attendance. (Debbie Gibson! I mean Deborah, Deborah Gibson.) This is my first event, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t do or say anything embarrassing. Many big donors are coming, so good impressions are key.

In other news, I lost a button on my blouse this morning. After chugging my coffee in the car, racing to the gift shop with my jacket on to buy a sewing kit (got the last one thank god!), and walking a couple more blocks to the office, I was a sweaty mess. Anyway, my blouse is now back together and I’m ready for a busy day.

And much more upsetting than a missing button this morning was the news of the attacks in London. Another sad reminder that we are not as safe as we may think we are.

How exciting! Tell me how the exhibit is. I hope you see lots of good gossip go down! You won't do anythign embarrassing - if so just chalk it up to Kristy's "breezy elegance" and then blog about it. At least your loyal readers will be entertained :)

It's fucking depressing the state that the world is in.. I wish people weren't so angry and militant.

How was the exhibit?
After I read your blog I had a worst case scenario vision:
I would have dressed up like Steve Martin's King Tut from the ol' SNL days. I would have delved into the concessions and open bar then made a drunken ass out of myself when I accidently tip over someone's sarcofigace. I would have guffawed foreign dignitaries and dressed to impress LA's history elite when I ask them if they picked out their own clothes or did they have their Mummy helping them. Unfortunately, my invite was lost in the mail.
