i'm leaving for california tomorrow morning and things have been crazy here! it definitely didn't help that i lost all the work i did yesterday afternoon. i was working on a photoshop piece and took out all the layers that separate all the objects (logos, text boxes etc) to turn it into a pdf and i could have sworn i didn't save it that way. but i did. so i had to do it all over again from scratch. boooo for making mistakes.

working under the gun to prepare press packets for a meeting is difficult with this unbelievably slow inkjet printer i have.

my big accomplishment today: a friend of mine works for 20 minutos, a spanish daily in the a.m./metro vein. for those of you who speak spanish, here's his blog: http://blogs.20minutos.es/entradagratuita/

he's working on a story about the olympic torch protests in san francisco and was trying to get in touch with someone involved. i still have a strand or two of connection to my days as an erstwhile political activist in the bay, and they are still just strong enough. thanks to a friend, i was able to track down the email of one of the climbers from the golden gate banner hang.

and there is my contribution to international journalism for the day.
