Michelle Is Coming To Town

In just 5 days, Sat. May 8, Michelle Obama, will be the commencement speaker at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, where I am an alumni, as well as a faculty member. How cool is that!

I love Michelle, and I'm a colossal fan. When we got the news, she'd be 'The Speaker,' a couple of months ago, I was skeptical. I got the news via a forward text message. I've learned my lesson about passing on, and believing those forwards. You can't always trust what's on Facebook either.

And of course, it was all over Facebook, with links to her page. Still I didn't believe. Surely it was a hoax. After the 5 0'clock news reported it, only then was it the real deal Holyfield!

May 8th, is THIS Saturday. I am so freaking excited! I will be in the same room with Michelle Obama, the wife of the President of the United States, and will listen to her speak in person. Many will watch on television, but I will be there in person, on the floor with other faculty, in my regalia.

To Mr. Husband, it's not a big deal. He has to work anyway.

I know I won't be able to take pictures, and all that, but I don't care. This event will be forever etched in grooves of my memory, like a wax album. Hopefully, I will be able to sleep this week.

What famous person, have you encountered?

Wow - I'm so jealous! I love Michelle! I hope - even if you can only take pics with your mind - that you'll make notes and you'll come back and blog about it. That is awesome! :)

Famous person I've encountered? I did meet John Travolta way back when he was in "Welcome Back, Kotter" - before his movie fame. I had his autograph, too, but I'll be darned if I can find it now.

And I met Adam know, Batman. Now, THAT was a hoot!

I am sooo excited for you. I'm sure you will paint a mental picture for all of us. I have the joy of meeting and taking a picture with Boys2Men and just recently David Tuterra who is a famous wedding planner. Hoping to hobnob with some others LOL.
