I realize that I have been out of action here for some time. Wow, in fact I just realized that I only posted twice during the entire month of February. Not good. This month marks the one year anniversary for my blog, and I hope to be much better about posting.
Work has been very busy lately. In the last month alone, I have attended a conference up north, finished a challenging feature story, and worked to finish a couple of editing projects. I am also working to complete a presentation I am going to give with my colleague tomorrow.
I have had some fun too. I serve as the lead editor of Where Twin Cities, one of the magazines that my group edits where I work. It’s a magazine for visitors to our wonderful part of the country. In February, Christina Applegate visited Minneapolis with her show, Sweet Charity, as she and her talented cast members worked out the kinks before heading to Broadway. Needless to say, we put her on the cover. In return, they were very kind to invite us to attend not only a show, but an after-party as well. I had a blast. I loved the show, and rubbing shoulders with the cast was great fun, especially meeting Tony Award-winner Denis O’Hare. I think the best part was when Ernie Sabella (you’ll recognize his voice as Pumba from the animated “Lion King” movies) bought a $200 bottle of wine and shared a glass with me. He is one nice guy.
OK, I know I’m name dropping. But when will I get the chance again? Great fun indeed. If anyone from the cast or public relations team is reading this, thank you very much for allowing me and my colleagues to attend the show and party. Thanks for visiting the Twin Cities; good luck in New York.
