it would be enough.

Got Wood?

Anyone got a good place to get firewood for the ball?
We are trying to have some firepits to keep the outside less chilly
150 pre-sale tickets have been sold. If the weather is good there will be more tickets available at the door for $!5.

Since we are trying to have a greenish event, if you BYOB please also bring your own glasses. Also make sure your containers are recyclable if possible or take them home with you. Smokers should bring their own ash receptacle. We will try to provide some of these things but to make the event scalable please pitch in!
 
This is a Leave No Trace event, if you bring it please take it home.

If you want you can bring extra formal wear with your name on it to let other people borrow. Also bring a warm coat, the obama video will be outside!
The first 100 tickets have sold out
I have released an additional 50 tickets since the weather looks good
sorry if you got the sold out message please try again

https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/52693

if it is nice outside there will be more room for tickets at the door but it all depends
Since I have gotten some questions about it,  children are very welcome at the ball and minors are free with thier parents or guardians.

I want them to run around and dance in the fancyness and watch Obama on the big screen.  I want Sofia to always remember this day however things turn out in her life or what comes next.  One of the best things about election night was having kids there and realizing what this might mean to them. So yes kids are not only welcome but they are part of my original vision. If you don't want to bring them I understand, but there will probably be a little herd running around if things go the way I hope.

Political Goals For 2009
By Smoove B
Smoove is not a political man. However, during the most recent election, something changed for Smoove. He has found a purpose. A new desire.

I will make Michelle Obama my woman, body and soul.

No more Gas

Jan. 8th, 2009 01:34 pm


This DJ earworm mashup is a comment on the problem America (and everyone else) has with oil consumption. I missed it the first time I heard it, but its is really layered

If you are what you say you are American Boy how you gonna fix it tick tick tick
gimme gimme more gas I just can't stop it's dangerous dangerous


anyway it is stuck in my head so I had to share
So the theme of 2008 was
"don't stop believin'"
and I have not quite come up with the them for 2009
the one we came up with on new years was
"impervious to doom"

I haven't really come up with anything better
but I wanted to reiterate my  focus for 2009

sanity- use the opportunity that the drugs have provided to actually listen to myself my thoughts and feeling as I go through the day. notice where i could  continue to design my life to get the results I want without judging myself harshly

nesting - invest in my home space make it what I need to nourish me and give me a place to take risks from get prepared for next pregnancy mentally physically emotionally financially

joy  -I will enjoy my life happiness is finally a choice for me everyday relish it  keep finding ways to lovingly connect with sofia while maintaining boundaries keep growing my partnership with carlos and all of my fantastic friendships

success - find a role model for success get a good picture of what it would be for me so I can manifest it I can have whatever I like just gotta get the picture of it

so sanity+nesting+joy+sucess= impervious to DOOOOM!

I will need to be uber girly and go
ballgown shopping
this weekend
anyone in?

Look no further
Look no further
Look no further
Cruelest almost always to ourselves
It mustn't
Get any better
Ahhhhhh-ohh-ahh- off
It's in our hands
It always was
It's in our hands
In our hands
It's all here in our hands
It's all here in our hands
Well now aren't we scaring ourselves?
Unnecessarily
Aren't we trying too hard?
'Cause it's in our hands
It's in our hands
It's all here
It's in our hands
Look no further
Look no further
It's in our hands
It always was

-Bjork
