The Jolie Pez Project: Annapolis and College Park, Maryland & Washington D.C.Posted: December 2, 2010
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.)
