Don't Forget Young Dems Convention & Kissell Reception Tomorrow

Don't forget the Young Dems convention tomorrow in Greensboro at the Koury Convention Center. It's located just off I-40 at the Sheraton Four Seasons. This is working out to be an excellent event. I'm sorry I will miss the morning session.

Matt Gross is no longer able to attend for what are probably obvious reasons, but Chris Bowers from MyDD will be filling his shoes. Bowers is an excellent addition to the convention in my opinion. I don't always agree with him, but over time have become very impressed with his work.

More on the flip....

Also don't forget the reception for Larry Kissell. Congressman Davis will be attending. BlueNCers who are planning to attend so far are Momoaizo, Thomas Brock and I'm going to take my youngest along for the fun. We also might have a surprise visit from another possible congressional candidate. Oh my! I wonder who that might be? (This is me being coy.)

I received an email this morning from a gentleman with Young Dems to let me know that The Nation magazine will have someone down covering the event. This extra attention on politics in the south - especially on how younger Democrats are helping to energize our party - is excellent.

I will have my youngest Dem with me, so won't be able to attend the convention, but hope to see you all at the Kissell Reception.

Today is crazy

I have to go get some stuff for the girls for their respective trips/sleepovers this weekend, but wanted to get this up.

I still have a lot of catching up to do, but will be able to do that tonight as I curl up on the couch with a good movie and my lap top. (Who says I don't know romance?)

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Do I go to the convention or the reception?

what time should I be there?

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Reception, sweetie

Now, you can go to the convention. It would be worth your time to see Chris Bowers and Ed Cone who are conducting the morning session, but the registration is $35 for the convention.

Do you still have my cell phone number? Is hubby coming with you? I'm so excited you're going.

What have YOU done today to make the world a better place?

My oldest son is attending....

....traveled with the College Democrats from UNCA...I can't wait to hear his impressions of the day.

I attended the Kissell reception

and many college/young dems attended. This is a great group of Democrats. I wish I had been able to stay for the convention. I will plan on it next year and will arrange for my kids to have something else to do.

How old do they have to be before they are YD's?

She wasn't excited about it?

Young Dems

are 18(?) to 35. College Dems are....um....in college and teen Dems are probably high school. I don't know what the age group for teens is.

Emily is painfully shy and gets overwhelmed in crowds, even when she knows people. She was happy to see Larry and she knows Steve and Leanne, but kinda hid behind me for a while. She was very tired from a sleepover. She really liked Mr. Brock and Hampton Dellinger impressed her. Her words: "He's really nice but not that fake nice." He did go out of his way to include her in the conversation. He pulled her out of her shell. He has a son just a little younger, so I'm sure that helped.

Linda, I'm so sad you weren't able to miss it. The two of us would have been (T)rouble. :) We'll have to make it a point to attend next year.

Now, that didn't make any sense at all

Linda, I'm so sad you had to miss it. Now, that's better.

Wish I Could Have Been There

I wanted to but today was CRAZY.

So was yesterday and the day before.

Where did all this work & madness come from all of a sudden?

I thought March Madness was over; isn't it? :P

Only for the Mad

Heh, only for the mad.
