Miss America's visit  
Well, it'll probably be no secret to those of you who live in Hawaii what bank I work for after I get through with this post... But today, our branch was visited by our new spokeswoman for our ad campaigns, Angela Baraquio - Miss America 2001 (who was only the second Miss America to come from Hawaii). She's a perfect spokesperson because she's very personable, she brings a lot of grace and dignity to our ad campaigns - and she makes all the guys around her go completely batty...

My boss and co-worker were completely entranced by her when she made her way around the bank meeting all the workers today. My co-worker (shy as he is) even ran out - almost to the parking lot to ask for her autograph before she left the branch. :) I do have to say she was very stunning to see in person and her smile really lights up a room. I think it took my boss the entire rest of the day to recover from the hug and kiss she gave him. ;) Maybe he still hasn't recovered. :)

In other news, I ate toast for dinner - Mark ate frozen white castle hamburgers. :P Sometimes it doesn't surprise me that we're not ready to raise children just yet... :P

Sounds like a busy/fun day at work. Seeing grown men act like little boys has to be such a fun thing to watch!!! :)

It was and it was the cutest thing to see my boss so giddy about meeting her. :) I don't know if she realized how many people's day she made just by visiting us.
irisheyes77 on July 2nd, 2003 07:46 am (UTC)
Wow, that is really neat about her visit!

We had the Miss USA pageant here in Gary, IN for the past couple of years. The girls would go out to the local mall and walk around and everyone would just ogle them!

It was really nice of her to visit :) When Pat Morita was our spokesperson he used to visit our branches too - but didn't get quite the same reaction from the men. ;) That's so great that they have the Miss USA pageant there :) - we're still waiting to host one.

Is it wrong that the mention of 'Gary, IN' made me start singing 'Gary Indiana, Gary Indiana, Gary Indiana' from The Music Man....?

:op

Re:
LOL, of course not! It's too bad that Gary is not what it used to be, though. :P

Hi Katie! Thanks for stopping by my journal! I know you've been busy and I appreciate you taking time to stop by. :) Sydney's fine. :) And still very rascal, but I adore her. How are your furry children? Especially your new addition and little Mona? Hope things get better for you at work and *big hugs* to you too! :) Take care!

Glad to hear the family is fine.
My furry child ate my wallet this morning. *sighs*.
He did spare the ATM card and the essentials..just ate the receipts...hmmmm.
BIG HUGS!
