After a quick stop at Blurt World Headquarters, the Jolie traveled to Maryland where she spent several days with the author of the fine blog, Hippie Cahier. Over the course of their time together, Hippie thoroughly documented their adventures over on her blog and sent several highlights of their time to be displayed here on Blurt. Please take the time to look through Hippie’s work, I highly recommend it!
The Jolie arrived in time for dinner and enjoyed a glass of white wine and some light reading to help her relax after her travels.There was a small incident with the neighbors’ cat, but that’s what attorneys and homeowners insurance are all about, right?
The Jolie enjoyed the quiet mornings here in the marina community. It’s a shame the weather was cold and a little gray sometimes. She really wanted to get out there on the water.
The tabloid stories are true: she really doesn’t like DC much, but she did agree to a quick evening around town. EVERYONE recognized her. I even heard folks speaking in languages other than English but could clearly discern the “Angelina Jolie” part. It is, indeed, exhausting to be a celebrity.
She saw the White House and the Capitol Dome and a few other local spots before it was just too dark and cold to go on. She’s a bit testy when she’s tired and cold. (Note the two gentlemen on the roof of the White House. Think they’re replacing some shingles? Me neither. Hippie Cahier is a security risk!)
We also visited the University of Maryland, where she learned the tradition that Omawarisan is well aware of: rubbing Testudo’s nose for good luck. She just about managed it, no small feat seeing as how she’s just about the size of said nose. (Omawarisan, a proud Maryland grad, is well aware that rubbing Testudo’s nose is good luck. He also takes note that Testudo still hasn’t flown) (That part in the last parenthesis is the first time I have ever written of myself in the third person. Omawarisan is sorry about that)
The Jolie visited another proud institution of higher learning when she got back to Annapolis.
Her visit ended with a whirlwind tour and some window shopping in historic Annapolis. For such a tiny girl, she sure loves to eat! (note the lamp in the window of the ice cream shop. Maryland is the greatest, I miss it. O.)

Very anxious to show The Jolie around Saint John…will be sending an e-mail with details…
Got it ma’am, I’m glad youre playing!
Thanks much, O. It was great fun. I wasn’t going to mention Testudo’s flightlessness, but y’know, someone had to do it. 🙂
Looking forward to her future adventures!
The link I found didn’t mention him being shot down by the Minuteman at the other end of the Mall if he did fly…is that the version you got or just the flying around thing.
…that lamp has only one leg. I saw the other, enrobed in black fishnet, adorning a shop in Calistoga last weekend. Eerie.
That’s not a lamp. That’s a major award! Calistoga has won a major award! 😉
It’s a statue! Yeah, that’s it. A statue!
My favorite part is testudo. Great job, HC!
I think they had to rebuild Testudo’s nose by the time I graduated. I rubbed that thing every way I could think of. It seemed to work, they gave me paper!
The Jolie atop the upturned shells = fantastic.
She really went all out!
Great photos, especially the one with the terrapin. Also, I like the picture with the naval officer.
I think it’s so cool how she’s gonna end up going around the world.
Nicely done, everyone.
I want her to be the most well traveled action figure in history.
I’m not sure why that is important.
Is it just me, or am I picked up on waves of judging from her as she gazes upon that Star magazine?
I got that too, but then, she is The Jolie. She defines judgementalism. Judgementalismness. Judgementalatarianism.
If the Jolie is interested in Las Vegas in February, let me know.
Cool! Have a particular part of the month youre aiming for?
It appears February 26 is my departure date. I’ll let you know around early January if that is in fact the date.
Guess I’m a little behind here. Had I known Jolie was coming to town, I would have made suggestions for site locations like: Eastern Market, Social Safeway, or anywhere in Virginia. What’s up with Maryland???
The Jolie travels in mysterious ways, mostly by mail. She doesn’t often alert the media to keep from having crowd issues.
She’s still in Maryland and will be moving on to Baltimore next before the Canadian Tour starts. Never mind suggestions, she can come see you and you can show her around. This wont be her last DC area visit.
Love the DC area, but I grew up in MD.
I had all sorts of ideas — Georgetown Cupcake for Betty and Eastern Market and more than a drive by of the Capitol among them. Unfortunately, she was a bit behind on schedule and we only had one day in DC on a holiday weekend. There’s so much to cover here. I’m sure you’ll do a fine job, especially if she has more time to spend.
I love The Jolie on the turtle’s nose!
That is my new screen wallpaper.
Email me. I’ll send you my address!
