I thought I was going to be bored today. I forgot to take Mrs. Boyle's 80th birthday into consideration.

Today, Arnold Schwartzenegger should be calling here to wish her a happy birthday.

Today, she will be getting multiple flower arrangements and gifts, which I will be delivering to her office when they come in.

Today, the media will be covering her party, which starts at about 2:30. I'm cutting cake. I ought to change if I'm going to be on TV. Various other important people will be stopping by. I wonder if they're going to be important to me or just to her. 'Cause it'd be pretty neat if someone famous came in.

Apparently, she's got a cake coming in from a bakery in Hood River, too. They're coming at about noon and taking up a conference room to assemble the thing. Apparently it takes TWO HOURS to assemble. Yikes. This is why I had pie at my wedding reception. :D

So it'll be busy today, I guess, after all.

I wonder what I should change into.

good thing you got all those new clothes!

Did she get a birthday cake from Polly's Cakes? (they have a store in Hood River and Portland). Those things are insanely expensive. My friends who like to toss money around had one at their wedding... It wasn't actually all that tasty of a cake though. They are really cool looking!

Now I just have to figure out which of the new clothes I should wear!

I'm not sure. It must have been them - I think the cake was like $1200.

And Ahnold's not calling after all. :(

This thing was really badly planned, the more I hear about it. Apparently PR invited the public in, and then they retracted it later but they think people will still try to come in, so they think the front desk needs to weed out the people who are Mrs. Boyle's friends from the general public and get rid of the public. That's so dumb.

She's the "matriarch" of Columbia Sportswear. Her son is the CEO and she's the chairman of the board. If you've seen any of those Columbia commercials, you've seen Mrs. Boyle.
