Big week for PA


(Disclaimer: This post mentions politics, but it's not political.)

As you probably know, Pennsylvania hosts its primary Tuesday in the hotly contested race for the Democratic nomination.  It's been fun to see the city so engaged--Mayor Nutter was on the Colbert Report!  Greg and I went to see Obama speak last night, and it was quite a feeling to be sandwiched in between Independence Hall and the National Constitution Center, surrounded by 35,000 people who are excited and hopeful about the future.  I should probably say that we went to hear Obama speak, because we were too far back to actually see him.


Below is a picture of Independence Hall.  This building has recently taken on new meaning for me because I'm training for a new job this summer.  I'm going to be a tour guide for the Philadelphia Ghost Tours!  I can't even explain how excited I am about the job, and everyone I mention it to seems excited as well.  And then they threaten to come see the tour, which dampens my excitement and makes me nervous.  I'm still in the early stages of training--I've only memorized one of the stories--but it's giving me a whole new appreciation for Old City.

I bet you'll kick butt at the Ghost Tours job. You'll be like a Camelot Knight!

Why thank you. Now all I need is a trusty steed--by which I mean, I want to buy a bike!

Hey, Mom and Dad are getting rid of theirs. I called dibs on one of them, but I could bring the other out when I come out in June if you want it. They have a bike rack so it wouldn't be a problem. I guess I could've emailed you this, but I wanted the WHOLE WORLD TO KNOW!

Dear Nicole, I love your Blog and I check it several times a week to find out what's new. You and Greg have worked so hard, it's amazing what you've acomplished. When do you plan to move in? I would like your address, I think your mom may have given it to me but I don't have it. Keep up the blog postings, I do enjoy them. I think you are very amusing and I feel your pain. I love you, Aunt Peggy
