Obama is coming to town

February 18th, 2009

Downtown Ottawa is awhir… the manholes have been welded shut, mailboxes and garbage cans have been removed, and streets will be shut down tomorrow morning. All in preparation for Barack Obama’s visit to the nation’s capital. People have been buzzing about this for weeks, and the visit itself will last all of six hours. As a tribute to tomorrow, here are a few of my favourite à-propos etsy items:

  1. Barack Obama Art by the lovely emcee
  2. Inaugural Obama Necklace in sterling silver by onelifejewelry
  3. Barack Obamouse by TheHouseOfMouse
  4. Yes we can Letterpress Birthday Card by afavorite
  5. Wood Obama Pin by silvercocoon
  6. O-BALM-A Lip Balm by herbanlifestyle
  7. Blue Wings Women’s T-shirt by coup

What a group of talented folks, I must say!

As for me, I have opted out of being part of the teeming masses who will undoubtably gather on Parliament Hill for the event. Instead, I have very smartly *GROAN* booked an eye appointment on the other end of the city at 10:40 a.m., ten minutes after Obama lands.

And with that… welcome, Mr. President!!! I hope you brought longjohns.

    You didn’t miss much. I *ahem* stood on my desk to look out my office window at Bronson. 12 Ottawa cop cars, 40 motorcade cars, 2 ambulances and 2 helicopters later, I still would have rather seen the impressive flying Obamamobile (aka. Air Force 1). Having seen Bush’s motorcade, Obama’s was MUCH more impressive. ;o)

    Thanks so much for featuring my lip balm (all profits go to charity), along with all the other cool Obama items! btw–I’m sure he felt right at home in Ottawa, weatherwise. He essentially said we have wimpy winters here in DC, and we do :)

    Thanks for featuring my wings shirt! I received over 200 hits for my ‘1.20.09′ design shirt around the 18th, but you have the wings shirt pictured…wasn’t sure where the hits were coming from…maybe your blog ;)
