Luck of the Irish

I was in Pittsburgh today on business, and my plans to fit in a bit of playtime went awry.

I hope Shaun isn’t too disappointed.

Shaun the Leprechaun was sent to me by my friend Sophie. Her class back in Kentucky is studying geography, and sent Shaun and other leprechauns out across the country a la “Up in the Air” to report on what they see, hear and do.

So far Shaun has tagged along with me on a video shoot; riding the subway; walking the dog; and now taking this trip with me to Pittsburgh.

I had planned to take Shaun to the Andy Warhol Museum after my meeting. But then I had to jump on a conference call and there was paperwork and cabs were impossible to get in the rain and…

Time ran out.

Hopefully taking him to meet Jon Stewart next week will ease the blow.

Hats off

Ever feel like you’re wearing too many hats?  Perhaps it’s time to make yourself a new one.

And what better day than today — Annual Make a Hat Day!

Yep.  That’s an actual holiday, folks.  I read about it on the Intertubes, so you know it’s true.  It’s apparently very popular in pre-school, kindergarten and grade school classrooms.  Kiddies love making hats as crafts projects.

Why do they get to have all the fun?

I think we would all benefit from a little headpiece handiwork.  Whadda ya say?  Are you ready to hit the pause button on your usual 9-to-5 routine, strap on the hot glue gun and dream up a tempting ten gallon topper?

No????

Okay.  Meet me at Target.
