Report: Occupy Wall Street gets $300K

$300,000 in cash donations have poured into Occupy Wall Street from around the world. Now, the group based in Manhattan has a storage room, a warehouse chok full of supplies. Everything from blankets and food to swimming goggles. My morning report below:

Potty paranoia

If you follow me on twitter you notice I put a rather disturbing story up that almost everyone can relate to. Coffee drinker or not you have likely stepped foot into a Starbucks. Well now a lawsuit has surfaced where a man alleges the Starbucks on 7th and Pennsylvania (one I visit often!) had a spy camera pointed at the toilet. He claims his daughter spotted it, he noticed it was on and called the manager and eventually the police came.

True or not… that’s yet to be determined but it makes me think about how easy this would be to do. With the tiny lipstick cameras available to anyone these days this is a big possibility virtually anywhere.

Anyone else out there feeling a little potty paranoia this morning?

Sundays can be fun days. Check out our breakfast potluck at NBC4 this morning. There’s nothing better to get you going early on a weekend morning then some egg sausage casserole and cinnamon rolls. Enjoy the rest of your weekend everybody!

More than 500 people showed up for the opening reception of Chef Jeff Black’s Pearl Dive Oyster Palace. The group raised more than $25,000 which will go towards making a special teaching kitchen. The kitchen will be at the Washington Nationals Diabetes Care Complex at Children’s Medical Center. The new restaurant dishes out an average of 4,200 oysters a night! PS… did I mention they have a bocce court in the seafood house.  More photos by Andrew Lightman.

Facebook: Your stalker list

Imagine the horror: A list of all the people you stalk on facebook revealed. If it happened would you be embarrassed?  It wouldn’t be so bad to know as long as no one else can see it. Well now you can.

According to TheKeesh.com you can drag the  Facebook Friends link to your browser’s bookmark bar. Then log on to Facebook and click the bookmarklet and BAM your “most stalked” are revealed. I did this in 5 minutes.

I was gonna post my screen save of it but then I realized some of my friends may think I’m a freak considering their ranking on my list.

PS: Hurry up, who knows when Facebook discovers this capability and yanks it.

 

We remember

Thinking of all the victims, their families, their friends, their children on this 10th Anniversary of 9/11.  I don’t normally let my baby watch TV. But that’s not the case today.

I’m having Splashbacks

America’s favorite mermaid gets arrested at the White House. Daryl Hannah was protesting an oil pipeline expansion. As I watched her be cuffed and whisked away a couple random thoughts came to mind.

  • My childhood visit Aquarena Springs in San Marcos TX- where you could see pigs dive and an underwater mermaid show
  • “Madison” use to be an uncommon name
  • This time she wasn’t arrested for indecent exposure but can’t help but think she looks awesome at 50

Where the beef… meets broadcast

Shawn, Me and Elaine with Chef Philippe Reininger

The weather was perfect for an afternoon lunch with the news gals here in DC. This time we gathered at the new J&G Steakhouse on 15th and Pennsylvania. As we enjoyed appetizing fried calamari and rice cracker crusted tuna we laughed about being moms and the new “Go the ___ to Sleep” book that’s all the rave these days amongst parents. When it was entree’ time we were impressed to find out that the steakhouse is vegan friendly! A couple of the gals had no problem ordering. Halibut in a scallion-spicy chili sauce was a popular pick this day. I was also happy to see they have Sips & Bites from 5-7pm on weekdays where you can get smaller portions of their dishes paired with wine at the wine bar.
