First the Clooney's Now This?

Muhammad Ali center will be a knockout Builders scurry to finish public display areas for November opening; other behind-scenes areas must wait their turnBy Sheldon S. ShaferThe Courier-Journal
Although scaffolding is still up and most of the reflective exterior tiles aren't installed, the Muhammad Ali Center will be ready for a private celebrity gala Nov. 19 and a public preview the next day, center officials said Friday.
The center's exhibits and public space will be open for good on Nov. 21.
But administrative offices, support space, a surrounding plaza and a pedway connection across Sixth Street to Riverfront Plaza won't be done until next spring, they said.
The scaffolding and the bare frame of the building without the exterior tiles make it seem as if the six-story center at Sixth and River Road has a long way to go before completion.
But "we're moving right along," center President Michael Fox said at a news conference.
About two-thirds of the center's exhibits, which will be concentrated on the fourth and fifth floors, have been installed, Fox said in an interview.
They include six pavilions, each reflecting an Ali trait - respect, confidence, conviction, dedication, giving and spirituality.
Each of the six stations is designed to tell viewers something about Ali and also themselves.
Displays include Ali boxing gear and memorabilia, and the exhibits make extensive use of multimedia, including film clips of fights and interviews.
Fox said the exterior tiles, which will show images of Ali, have been delivered. The tiles on the building's north face are up, and all should be in place by early November.
Fox said the scaffolding is scheduled to come down by Nov. 8.
The first peek at the center's interior will be a media tour on Nov. 18.
The following evening, there will be a "grand opening gala" sponsored by Yum! Brands, including a red-carpeted entrance into the Kentucky Center.
A tribute to the former heavyweight boxing champion and humanitarian will be at 8:30 p.m. at the center's Whitney Hall.Stars due to attend include Angelina Jolie, Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx, Will Smith, Gladys Knight, Wynonna Judd, Kris Kristofferson and numerous athletes, Fox said.President Bush and all living former presidents were invited, but only Bill Clinton is expected to appear.
At 1 p.m. Nov. 20 there will be a "community celebration" for the public on Riverfront Plaza, dedicating the center.It will be open to the public for two hours, and at least a few hundred people will be allowed inside for a look. But they will have to pay the regular admission, which is $9 for adults.
The center will begin its regular hours Nov. 21. They are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

my iPod Posted by Picasa

I Ain't Sayin' She's a Gold Digger
So sorry about the random picture of me below, I downloaded the free picture sharing that this site offers so I had to test it out. Moving on...

Today we did some Christmas shopping!! The parents put the iPod mini on layaway, it's pink!! I'm so excited about it. Like now, anything else I get is icing on the cake, just knowing that I'm getting the iPod. I can't wait to walk on campus with my mini! We got like a million versions of Scene It. Game night anyone? haha.

I quit Target. Yeah, crazy I know. But, Candace you know the story and I don't want to go into it again so if for any chance you read this and aren't Candace and are dying to know the story, just ask me through AIM or e-mail. So I'm worried about finances. They'll be fine after the first of the year, but until then I need to be money conscience. Mom said that her and Dad will pay my insurance in December so I really don't have that much to worry about, but hey: I stress about finances.

So, that said. What do ya'll want from Macy's for Christmas? That's the only charge card I possess.

Good Night and Good Luck
Well here we go again. I've come here to blogspot to do a little blogging. I hope you like it, feel free to leave me some comments: we'll call it a blog-warming present. The biggest news of today is this: I'm attending a special screening of the new George Clooney flick, "Good Night and Good Luck" in about two weeks! The journalism students are getting in! I'm so pumped about this. Nick and Nina Clooney (George's parents) are going to be there and Nick is having a little Q and A session after the screening! Seeing his parents is probably the closest I'm ever going to get to George Clooney so I really can't wait.
In other news: when the heck is it going to finally get cold around here? I'm getting a little fed up with the 80 degree weather. And probably cause I just spent all that money on that North Face fleece I was dying to have. Ugh. I've also been thinking about my 2006 travel plans. I'd really like to go to the beach again, which I'm sure will happen with the parents. I would also like to go to a major out of state city. Chicago, Washington D.C., NYC, L.A. Umm yeah, one of those. I looked up how to get tickets to the Oprah show. You have to call and make a reservation, but it doesn't seem that hard to do. So, with that said, I'm only going to Chicago if Oprah is involved.
I had a meeting with my advisor today. And let me tell you, I'm just so pumped about math next semester. Haha..yeah right! Oh well...onward and upward.
