On the Personal Side ...

Today was the "Mayor's Breakfast" for us Austin Under 40 finalists. It was good to meet some of the other finalists, since I don't really know many. We are quite a diverse group! The event this morning made me realize the awards ceremony is only a week from now! I don't know where the time goes sometimes, or rather I don't know how I manage to fit so many things in to my days.
I also wanted to let you know about something that may generate a lot of chatter when it appears. I was interviewed by the Austin-American Statesman for a story they are running next week. I talked with the writer yesterday and then met her this morning at the breakfast. One thing I can say is it definitely is different being on this side of the interview. I've literally interviewed thousands of people, but giving an interview and trusting it comes out how you mean it is an entirely different situation! I won't tell you what the story is about yet, but I will say it's something on the personal side. Hmmm ... I'll be sure to let you know when it appears in print. : )

Interviewed by the Spaceman huh ? Very cool. I'll have to see what I can do about reading that...hopefully you'll link it.

Yeah, it is different to be on the receiving end of an interview, isn't it ?

Interesting!
We are in the middle of the winter's last blizzard hopefully. I am not a television watcher but I have to tell you I had the BIGGEST laugh over Ellen D with "Gladys" per your last post. What a hoot. Barbara
