I did. I was at the Avenue, getting good and drunk, when I saw this table of gawkers and they were making fun of my TV movie, so I marched right over and gave them a piece of mind and then, later, when one of the women bumped into me, I punched her in the face.
That wasn't me.
If it had been me, it wouldn't be news. And a woman slapping another woman in a club is hardly news worthy or novel but damned if it's not supposed to be another mark against Lindsay Lohan.
If she weren't Lindsay Lohan, nothing else would have happened. This is such nonsense.
To be fair, I should point out that since this is expected club behavior, Lohan shouldn't have been at a club. She should be laying low until she gets off probation because what happened is a typical night at most clubs.
I did party last night. I didn't hit anyone. (That I remember anyway.)
I was home and having a blast when C.I. and Ava called to say they'd be going to NYC that evening and did I want to meet up because they were going to attend the UN briefing by Martin Kobler on Iraq?
Sure. Who passes up NYC?
So I packed a bag and hopped a flight. And I'm always more tired when I fly from California then when I fly home to California. I only get jet lag leaving my state. But I partied and had fun and, I guess, since Ava and C.I. don't post in the evening, I didn't even think about posting. I had completely forgotten -- to the point that I didn't even realize I hadn't posted until I read today's cheeky e-mail.
At the UN today?
Martin Kobler wanted to praise the Independent High Electoral Commission. C.I. goes over this in the snapshot (and does so wonderfully) but I want to weigh in too because this is disgusting.
All over the United Nations, as you walk around, you see various signs and greetings. One popular one is something about the UN being your world.
Is that supposed to be true?
If so, I'm a woman.
If the UN is my world, then why am I not recognized as a citizen?
Ban Ki-moon is the Secretary-General (leader) of the United Nations. His Special Representative to Iraq is Martin Kobler.
Kobler wanted to praise Iraq's Independent High Electoral Commission for its great work in coming up with nine new members.
By law, a third of the members are supposed to be women.
So if Kobler's offering gushing praise (and he was), we should assume that three or more members are women, right?
Well only one is.
The Commission failed to meet its own requirement to have at least 3 members be women.
And Kobler didn't even acknowledge that as he gushed endlessly about IHEC.
Is it really my world?
Okay, I just pulled up the UN website. Top left hand corner? "Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world."
They have slogans like that all over the physical building in New York.
But it's just empty words.
Martin Kobler felt he could praise IHEC to the Security Council and wasn't required to point out that the body he was praising failed to meet the gender requirements.
The real slogan of the UN? "Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world -- if you're a man."
Closing with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
