Tangent aside, we're pulling up to the valet, and it's a bit crowded by my side (passenger seat)-- quite a few people standing around, hovering. My brother, who was driving, turns to see what the commotion is all about -- and really, it wasn't so much a commotion as just a handful of guys standing really close to the car -- and makes a comment, "Hunh. Looks like the dude from Terminator; T-1000?"
I look and think to myself, "Hunh. It does look like the dude from Terminator."
Step out of the car, and as we're entering SAS, I hear a couple of guys asking T-1000 for a photo.
Dude. It was T-1000. Real name: Robert Patrick.
So we're in the lobby now, and still sorta smirking at Robert Patrick hanging out at the SAS. As we're heading towards Peacock, I hear a deep, gorgeous voice say, "Michael!" I froze mid-step and whispered to myself, "David Palmer?"
Hell effin' yeah, it was David Palmer! Only the greatest President the United States has ever witnessed!
Ladies and gentleman, Dennis Haysbert, who plays President David Palmer on Fox's "24."
They were both dressed in the same black T-shirt; looked like they were there for some sort of cause or event, but I didn't stick around to find out anymore.
There was shrimp on toast to be had.

As some of you may know, Director Amer Al Zuhair recently won first prize for Best Documentary at the Gulf Film Festival in Dubai for the second part of his documentary series, When the People Spoke. Tonight, and for the first time, he will screen the latest installment, which focuses on the elections of 2006, the first time women participated in the voting process.
This is an important documentary, particularly with elections a little less than a week away.
Your attendance and support would be greatly appreciated. So come one, come all. Tell your friends, tell your family and see you tonight.

Ah, yes, the American Thanksgiving, how I love it so. Despite the grumpiness, this is the time of year I like to focus on the things I am thankful for.
My loyal readers (hi, dad?) may notice I've cut my 'Thankful' list in half this year; take that as you will.
In any event, 2007's 25 Things To Be Thankful For This Thanksgiving:
1. Good friends
2. Melted cheese
4. Text messages
5. John Legend's Let's Get Lifted
7. Not being tied down to sucky jobs that drain your energy and leave you flustered and miserable
9. Good weather
10. My family
11. Poker nights
12. Music downloads
13. My BFF
14. Gay boys
15. Hours-long gossip sessions
17. Digital cameras
18. Letting go of the past
21. The perfect red lipstick
22. Unconditional love
23. Acoustic guitar
24. Weekend getaways
Happy Turkey Gobble Day, boys and girls. May you be safe, happy and warm.

I'll leave you with the wise, wise words of one Miss Lindsay Lohan.
"I feel like an asshole, an idiot, because I feel like I'm distracting from the other things that are important, like global warming and that kind of stuff."
