So, my sister and I met the Deputy Mayor today along with his posse, other local business owners, and community activists. They were all pretty cool! I use to imagine politicians and community activists as being something that I wouldn't touch with a 20 feet pole. "Who wanted to get involved with them?" I would ask, "I'm not crazy and I like to shave my legs and pits. " But meeting the Deputy Mayor and all the people surrounding him I found them pretty decent and they all had a sense of humor. I know. What a shock, right? They were all very nice and no one was wearing plaid, birkenstocks, or a monicle (don't ask). They all had the community's best interest in mind and that is wonderful. They all seem so passionate about the changes going on in the CD and that makes me proud to be a part of it. We not only met the Deputy Mayor, but we were able to meet city planners, and the owner of the soon to be Japanese sweets shop. I'm so excited for that. He said he trained for 5 years to make these sweets and that he's hoping to open in June/July. He promised me some samples. I can't wait!
On another note, we also got all the equipment into the kitchen and hung wallpaper in the bathroom. Don't worry, we chose something tasteful. In fact, you might like it so much you may stay in there a little longer just to examine the pretty walls. We just wanted to give you something to do while you sit on the john. Who just wants to sit on the toilet and do their business when they can distract themselves with wallpaper? Oohh...maybe you guys might get all "Yellow Wall Paper" on me. Well...maybe not go insane with depression and stuff, but exhilarated with the sophistication. (Please do not shred my wall paper). Anyways, I got carried away. Just wanted to let you guys know that we are making some progress. Okay, check with you all later.
