best. day. of. my. life.

hands down.

didn't sleep at all monday night. suppose it was either nerves or the
caffeine from that snapple i had before bedtime?

woke up (rather, rolled over again to see that even though i still
hadn't gone to sleep, it was time to get up) bright and early to staff
my politician at a few subway stops where he shook hands, meet and
greeted.

took a detour to the jimmy choo sample sale (but it was a total bust).

got dolled up, went to Face Stockholm to get makeovers with the
spokeswoman and the policy advisor. headed to the hotel where the
GIGANTIC party was being held. put on my fancy "staff" all-access pass
and worked the VIP suite for my politician. lots of very very
influential people there, mostly politicians, and even ivanka trump
(yeah, i thought it was weird too).

ran down to the main ballroom to see the folks give their speeches. YAY!

went back up to see all the congressional results flow in.

SEE WE WON BACK THE HOUSE

SAW WE WERE THREE TWO ZERO SEATS AWAY FROM WINNING THE SENATE! WE FUCKING TOOK BOTH HOUSES PEOPLE!!! EXPECT A WEBB ANNOUNCEMENT TOMORROW!!

continued to the private private lavish grand penthouse suite rented
by the campaign where the man and some staff gave some really lovely
thank you speeches. we danced, ordered room service, were brought huge
buckets of beer every hour and partied away till the weeeeeeeee hours
of the morning. lots of singing, dancing, tequila and maybe a new
little romance as well. (zeke is in singapore and then in thailand for the next three weeks,
i'm bound to lose interest, right?)

and now i have to get ready for a little trip i'm leaving for
tomorrow. guess where??? stay tuned...eeeeee!!! i love my life!!!!

Good result! If you've time, can you explain how your Government system works to a British person like me. In Great Britain, the Government puts up legislation; that's the Cabinet and Ministers (your Congress?) and this is voted on by Parliament (your House of Representatives?) and if the Government loses a vote this is either serious - and they have to go to the country with a General Election - or less serious when they excuse it away and go and think again. So Parliament is made up of the opposition and the Governemnt's own party MPs, and if they lose their support they are in trouble. The Prime Minister heads the aprty in power and has become increasingly imporatnt in defining policy, and the Queen's role is to be Head of State and accept a Prime Minister who can state they have a majority in her parliament - your President seems to be these role combined. Except that when the Prime Minister loses it, he has to leave office and there is an election, whereas Bush can go on for two more years...

Have I got it right?
