Wedding Recap

Posted by: meaplet on: May 27, 2008

Week so far in review

Posted by: meaplet on: May 1, 2008

Remember that time when, instead of doing any work, I went to conferences all day and my chief business was to scmooze and make connections and take photos like the one below of MC Hammer? That was a sweet week. Check out my album on Picasa for some other photos, including more celebrities. It is […]
