Elizabeth -

Is Annie joining DAR?

That God-Awful Marion Cotesworth-Haye wrote Abbey, asking if they can "reserve" the White House for the 2005 DAR Induction Ceremonies - this isn't a fucking hotel conventional center, for Christ sake.

She's probably looking for another key.


P.S. - How are you doing? Still sick?

Does anyone know of a "politically savvy" assistant who might be seeking employment now, or in the near future? I know of someone who has a great opportunity for such an animal.

CJ flocked a post to "the sisterhood" about Josh's coffee war. She included me.

I'm sure she did that by mistake. I've never been included in anything the sisterhood did before.

I've always wondered if it was because Josh and I used to date, or because of my ties with Abbey.

I'm sure it was a mistake. No one has ever been friendly with me here.

I've been sicker than a dog, dragged myself into work, and have Ms. Moss emailing me on a bill that I just don't give a rat's ass about at the moment. Shit. I hope Miss Perky leaves me alone.

Dying slowly of the flu. This has to be more than the flu.

No seems to have noticed I've been gone.

Lizzard - Happy to you!

All the great people were born in February - Washington, Lincoln, you and I.

And I can't wait for you to move to DC - we'll be just a few block apart.

Attached are some articles providing the background information you requested on the Pharmacists Refusal Clause (a/k/a the Conscience Clause), the Amendment to the annual Pharmaceutical Funding bill currently in Appropriations.

Let me know when you are ready to discuss whether or not you want to take a position on this attempt by ultra-conservatives to deny women control over their own bodies. I guess I just gave away my stance on this amendment.

As always, I will restrain myself from setting loose the hounds of hell onto the opposition until I hear from you as I have learned my lesson well. As we have discussed, ad nausea, my mantra shall be, "I am a Constituency of One only in my private life."

Just kidding - re the ad nausea - I appreciate all your help regarding that little transgression

Please, you know I'm not coming, so stop pestering me. I do have a place to go; I am not sitting at home, moping with Henry. I am going to have a delightful holiday experience with friends from the White House.

I would be more than happy to come over sometime this weekend and see you once they are gone.

Loven ya

[private entry]

Everyone has been wringing their hands and bitching about David's editorial in the Post.

They see it as muckraking. They are screaming about degrees, experience and lack of research; yet they miss the point. This is an incestuous administration.

Thank God David didn't mention me. After all, I was the one who pointed this all out to him.

It was all innocent enough. He asked how I had gotten my job and I told him about working on Sam's campaign and speaking with Abbey at a fundraiser which lead to her hiring me. It had nothing to do with the fact that Abbey's parents were friends of my parents, and that she used to babysit me. He had thought it was because of my on-again off-again relationship with Josh. I then pointed out that although Josh never let our relationship interfere with his willingness to get me fired from a job, he would never help me get one.

I just didn't think David would write on op/ed column about it. I'll have to make it clear to him that our pillow talk is private - not for background on articles nor as attribution for off-the-record statements.

Though I am still waiting to find out what the "Director of Special Projects" does, other than make Josh's doctor appointments.

First Entry

The First Lady has recently started a Live Journal and has been talking about it non-stop for days now.

She suggested that I do the same; that I start a Journal, record my thoughts, words, actions, deeds. She said that writing down my thoughts and feelings would help me to get a handle on my life, to decide where I stand, where I want to go.

She said it would help me discover myself, to determine my destiny.

What an excellent idea! I thought I'd give it try. I just need to figure out how this works.
