I did get to go with a group and watch the lobbying of Sen. Toomey--or rather, his very very new intern. In a cafeteria. This young intern stated that she hadn't even had a chance to familiarize herself with all of his positions. It appeared to be a head-spinning, back to the wall, terrorizing few minutes for her, even though we were as polite as we could be to her. We all felt sorry for her.
We'd wanted to visit Sen. Casey, but it just didn't happen because time was too tight, and there were so many ahead of us--as I say, we were enough to be a crowd. While we were roaming the Dirksen Senate Office Building, we got lots of thumbs up and thank yous from government workers, and that was nice. The only anti-PP group was small, enemic, and outside. It was a very peaceful day and the hardest part was finding our way out of the building afterwards. It's a labyrinth, unless I'm really from Kansas.
During the rally, my favorite speaker was Sen. Barbara Boxer, though everyone was good. That's how I spent my day off.
What else is going on in my fast-paced, exciting life? Well, I subscribed to the Nook version of The New Yorker and I love it. It's just three bucks a month and keeps me in interesting diversions. In fact, it's a challenge to keep up with. I'm also still reading Wolf Hall, which yes is long, but is also being preempted by the new stuff. The TBR pile is reaching new heights.There was a humorous piece in March 28's edition about something called Going Outside. I suppose I should do that, it's shaping up to be a decent running day...Have a great weekend, y'all!
