Tonight’s the first time in awhile I’ve done nothing and even then I accomplished laundry. My days and nights have been busier lately, intentionally and unintentionally. I started work early, earlier than I probably had to. I didn’t go to sleep until after 1 a.m. last night, but still sprung out of bed at 6:45 a.m. to make it to the Library of Congress by 8 a.m. There were these public broadcasting awards there, all meant to honor a couple members of Congress. Not to mention the free coffee and bacon and eggs.
From there I ended up dashing to the JW Marriott for more speeches and food and flair. I discovered the best place to corner lawmakers, if that’s a thing you find yourself doing, is on hotel escalators, especially if it requires a couple floors’ worth of escalators for them to get to the building exit. I hopped on after Sen. Klobuchar this morning following her big speech to these local broadcasters and had a nice long chat on her way out of the building.
