"The Girls Scouts provide a wonderful opportunity for young women to achieve their potential. I am honored to be named by the Girls Scouts as one of San Diego’s 10 Cool Women of 2009 and wish both organizations continued success in our community."
- Joan Waitt, 2009 'Cool Women' Honoree
Some very 'Cool Women' gathered March 11th, 2009 at Tiffany's Fashion Valley for some delicious coffee, breakfast by the bite, shopping, and most importantly, a ceremony to honor this year's Girl Scouts San Diego -Imperial Council cool list. That would be 'San Diego's 10 Cool Women of 2009!'

And there was so much more to the event.
Solveig Deuprey, the President of the Board of Girl Scouts San Diego / Imperial Council spoke from the heart about leaders and setting an example.
Solveig added this when speaking to attendees. "I represent the local Girl Scout membership of nearly 30,000 girls and 12,000 adults. The mission of our 97 year old organization is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Girl Scouts is America's premier leadership development program for girls. We hope today's Girl Scouts grow up to become just like the courageous, confident, charismatic and cool women we're honoring today."
And they were cool. Girl Scout Roshni Kakaiya was there to witness her mother's honoree award. Also there was Brownie Girl Scout Sabrina Nguyen.
More there at this special event were Event Chair Marla Black, Jo Dee Jacob the Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts San Diego-Imperial Council, and Barbara Bry from the initial first year of Cool Women, class of 2001. Other Cool Women there from past years included Marissa Bejarano, Linda Katz, Delores McNeely, Carol LeBeau, Rana Sampson, Patti Roscoe, and Mary Walshok.

Lucky were all guests going home with a Tiffany's bag. Inside were Girls Scout cookies. 'Cool Thin Mint Cookies of course!

Kima and Hugh Jackman.....
Oh yes, that was Kima, The Social Diary's German Boxer kissing actor Hugh Jackman last Sunday morning. Kima was hanging with Mom and Dad in the lobby of their hotel in Beverly Hills when who came over but Wolverine, star of Australia the Movie, The Oscar's emcee, Hugh Jackman. He was very cordial and loved Kima....so Kima loved him back with lots of kisses. Hugh was there with his son Oscar. They were later followed by Hugh's wife Deborah Furness. They make rather the golden good looking couple with oodles of talent.
more star kissing by Kima ............
And Kima was on a kissing rampage in Beverly Hills over the weekend. The night before her encounter with Hugh Jackson, Kima was at the Genesis Awards for the Humane Society of the United States. Among the stars kissing Kima and vice a versa were Corey Feldman and his wife Susie, Jennifer Coolidge, the MILF in American Pie, and the ever sexy gal in Best in Show and Legally Blonde, and Paul McCartney's former wife Heather Mills, who is now better known as a terrific supporter protesting Canadian seal slaughter.
Malibu Sunday brunch at its finest.................
Meanwhile over in Malibu, Tra di Noi still serves up the best Sunday Brunch. And they do it with Italian panache.
And the shopping is great too!.... Madison's, Planet Blue and a stop in at the very cool Traditions Jewelers.
Need a house with some 'extra' closet space?? .......................
Candy Spelling was out and about supporting the Genesis Awards too. Candy is an animal lover big time. She's also big in the news for her gy-normous home for sale. It's 56,000 plus square feet.... lots of closet space and a steal (tongue in cheek) for $150 million..... Yipes!
