I only associate with famous people

March 10, 2012


Happy Birthday, Deborah!

Warning: The following sentence will be quite convoluted. My friend Kate, who I work with at the CDC, has a daughter, Grace, who is a herself a photographer and also works for a famous National Geographic photographer in Lincoln. *Whew*

Joel Satore has traveled the world taking pictures of wildlife for National Geographic, and his pictures are amazing. He has a passion for nature, and uses his talent to raise awareness about how we are losing our biodiversity. His photos are incredible!

This past week NBC Nightly News ran a story on him, and I think you’d like it. Grace is briefly in one of the clips, you can see her here on the far right. I love knowing celebrities.

Er…. moms of daughters who work with celebrities.

Go, Grace! Go, Joel! Go, animals!

    I saw this live last week & heard them say the photographer was working in Lincoln and I thought to myself, “I betcha Lloyd and Lauren know all about that.”

    I saw “who I work with at the CDC” and thought “I thought Lauren worked at a preschool-not at Centers for Disease Control.” Then I thought, “Of course she only associates with famous people, what with working at CDC.” (Oksy, so CDC workers are probably only famous in my world, er educational world at least, of health promotion, but still, that’s what I thought.) Then I realized that CDC stood for “Child Development Center.”

    Apparently I could have really used that hour of sleep I didn’t get last night.

    Grace is finding out what a joy it is to work for something you believe in! (And don’t you think her hair looks cute?)

    I have seen Joel speak at a Nat Geo Live lecture here in Seattle. He was great. If you ever have the opportunity to attend any of the Nat Geo Live lecture series, you should definitely do it.
