We (a bunch of us from work including a survivor who has been working with us for some time) hauled our asses to Augusta for a dv press conference and legislator schmooze-fest, yesterday. It was okay. I photo-journalled the whole thing for work, the state coalition, and ME! I got to stand in front with the press (both of them!) and everything. Here are some of the pics. Afterwards we went to a Thai place that was literally next door to the Maine Greyhound Placement kennel, where I got star. And we have an intern from the U of Colorado with us. Somebody gave her crack so she would act really funny. At least I'm pretty sure somebody did. It was awesome. We had the whole restaurant to ourselves. :) happy friday, ljl
Some of the legislators meant to stand behind the speakers. Some just got caught on the stairs. "What the hell are they doing? I need to get to the cafeteria!"
The Silent Witnesses commemorate domestic homicide victims.
This is a pretty good restaurant, though some members of our party were not into thai food. I was yelling, "gag into the camera!"
Just say no, KD. And take that nice man's napkin off your head. Please.
Off we go, into the (lack of) sunset!
