I am so proud.
and yes, I know. The boys have their jackets on backwards. They are boys.
We got to Democracy Plaza and could see they were ready to present the news. This afternoon it was still a tie.
Those banners will rise. The first one to 270 wins.
When I started typing the score was 000 - 000. Now it is a win for the United States.
But Democracy Plaza was not really about politics, it was about the MS in MSNBC. Microsoft. It was really a place to show off the new Windows 8 Products.
A few interesting things about these drawings.
First they were done on a touch screen computer. No pencils, no paper. (see below) They had to be emailed to me. Once I received the email I was unable to download the images to my Picissa account. (Hmmm.. Microsoft does not play well with Google.)
The artist was really cool. Sarah Dahl of Dahl/Yang . My kids kept asking her who she wanted for President. She said that she had no opinion. I said of course you do, but you are not allowed to tell us while working. I got a smile.
I often play a game with strangers. When I am out with my kids and at least 2 of their friends, we play "Can you pick out the twins?" Sarah Dahl was the first person to get it right. Right away. She was looking quite closely at these kids.
