I have successfully approached Roxanne St. Claire and introduced myself - so her conference goal is complete. And she’s really sweet. read more »
Is wearing Maggie Gyllenhallallallaaal’s Oscar dress, which she won in an auction, and she looks great. And that’s the awards folks. Hope you enjoyed our complete lack of capitalization and rapid thumb typing action. I’m going to rest my thumbs now - be back in a bit. read more »
