Kennedy Center Honors and other stuff
A couple things: one, the Gopher volleyball team lept into the NCAA sweet sixteen tonight with a come from behind win in five against Washington, and two, Meryl was feted with the Kennedy Center Honors this evening. Both equally exciting. Of course, we don't get to see the Kennedy event televised until the end of December (the exact date escapes me, sorry Streepers), but I checked out a few pics and Meryl looks pretty good in a Grecian plum gown, as you can see. I look forward to hearing all the hyperbole about Meryl and her career. I've no doubt she'll do her best to act appalled at all the fuss.
I also wanted to add a link to a great article from the Washington Post that I came across a couple days ago (maybe yesterday?) that I feel is a great commentary on Meryl and her craft. The article has been circulating Meryl blogs so I realize I'm slow, but I don't always know I'm going to blog until I "feel it." Check 'er out.
ps-I can't believe I still have to wait more than a fucking month to see The Iron Lady. That is unless Joe and I go to the Rose Bowl and I force him to then see it in L.A. Fingers crossed(?).
