It was 9-11 Day yesterday, so Austria threw a party for Kofi! They made a nice building for him, and my favorite, favorite thing about it is the way they did the back-lit signature thing so that it looks like an upscale restaurant. Neat! Next time I'm there, I'm totally going to try to get reservations at Kofi's!
Oh, and did you notice that Ursula was there? Any Ursula fans in the house? Oh, I know; I'm teasing. But, OMG, look how fantastic she is! Fans of the affable diplomatic giantess' height should find this picture especially thrilling, as it shows how considerately she eschews the riser so that her seemingly puny -- but actually normally-sized! -- colleagues could feel more comfortable for the photo-op. She's such a class act!
