Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 170

Shootings in Baltimore

Everyday at the moment my email pops up with another news notification that there has been another couple of shootings in Baltimore.

It’s a time of great sadness when this dominates the news of a city 😦

Edward Norton

The movie-star Edward Norton is from Columbia, I found out today. That is very exciting for movie-buffs and shallow celeb-lovers like me. He graduated from Wilde Lake and is the grandson of none other than Jim Rouse, the clever chap who planned and built Columbia. Well I never did! Ed, next time you’re in town, let me know and we’ll hook up for a cuppa πŸ™‚

I love your work, especially Primal Fear and American History X

Martin O’Malley, Governor of Maryland

I got told today something that made me squeal with a) untold delight and then b) sadness and despair….

Martin ‘Muscles’ O’Malley (= squeal of untold delight) was in River Hill, that is in my neck of the woods, not a mile from my house (= double squeal of untold delight!).

But ‘was’ = ‘last winter’ = squeal of sadness and despair upon acknowledging the fact that we had been so, so close to each other and yet I was unable to meet him.

I was shown pictures of this event. He had his clothes on = squeal of sadness and despair…..

This is a better picture (squeal of delight) :)
