U. S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice , right, meets with Belgian Foreign Minister Karel De Gucht at the State Department Wednesday, July 19, 2006 in Washington. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)He seems like a nice man, and it's probably a nice break for our heroine to get to chat with somebody who, like, totally doesn't matter right now. He's just, you know, a nice guy from that country that makes Tintin comics, OK? Next!

(AP Photo/Evan Vucci)See what I mean? New Zealand? OMG, because there's, like, WAY important things happening there right now! OMG, I heard some sheep got abducted by abortionists or something! But seriously, Condi needs to meet with these people or else they start thinking she's all uppity and thinks she's better than them, but she's totally not like that!
But the day before yesterday was a toughie:

REUTERS/Joshua Roberts (UNITED STATES)Hmmm, this guy doesn't look even nearly as fun as the hot Lebanese action Condi had a few months ago, does he? Do you think she had fun meeting with this robey-guy? Well, you tell me:

That caption was written two days ago, and now it looks like Princess Ferragamo is totally not going to get to go to that party in Korea! That's so not fair!
But anyway, whew! It's a busy Condi week, isn't it? I don't know why she's so busy; is something, like, superimportant going on right now? That soccer thingy is over, so I know that's not it.
PS: Pssst, Condi! Um, can you get do-overs on your eyebrows? I'm just saying.
