I'm thinking of starting a new tradition, declaring Friday to be Narcissism Day here at Preposterous Universe. A day we can take off from thinking about important world events and profound cosmic mysteries, and just think about me.
In this spirit, I offer this pointer to my first-ever (so far as I know) appearance in the society pages of a major newspaper. (To balance things out, here's a media moment more relevant to my purported expertise. [Update: I found another one. What a media slut, hmm?]) The occasion was the Dinosaur Dinner I attended to benefit Project Exploration. Here's more proof:
L to R: Sean, State Senator Barack Obama, Shureice Kornegay, Jean Claude Francois, Project Exploration Executive Director (and expectant mother) Gabrielle Lyon, Michelle Obama. I'm the one with the martini, to nobody's surprise.
I have to admit that I didn't see any evidence of the stalker that Jack Ryan's campaign has assigned to follow around Obama twenty-four hours a day. Probably he couldn't afford a ticket. The Obama campaign has started its own blog, which is worth a visit.
