Design Sponge book signing (see above!), out for drinks and tomorrow I'm going to continue what's become a strange, surreal tradition: walking a balloon in the Norfolk Grand Illumination Parade:
If you've never done this (and I'm guessing most of you haven't), it's surprisingly strenuous and hard work. It's all about teamwork, watching out for horse poo, lowering the balloon for every overpass and power line and lifting the legs so they don't drag on the ground. Oh yeah, and you have to shout "Happy Holidays" and wave and grin for the cameras.
Did I say cameras? Why yes! If you're in the Hampton Roads area, you might catch me at work on Channel 13 at 7 p.m. Saturday, at 9 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day, 3 p.m. on Dec. 5 and at noon on Christmas Eve. Even better, you should come down to the parade; it really is one of the best local parades I've ever seen! Find more details here.
