Day 16 – all day at a warehouse!

They sent us (Britney, me and two other interns) to some warehouse in Virginia to shred more documents!  We were there yesterday and all day today too.  We had to be escorted by Secret Service guys!  Very scary!  Got all this dust on my hands now.  Britney says she wants to quit!  I think we might be sent out there again tomorrow.  Keep you posted!

Day 13 – 5:20pm

We’re not in lock-down anymore and they told us the reason for it. 

It seems Michelle lost an earring.

Day 13 – 4:30pm

We’ve been in “lock-down” now for over 2 hours!  That means no one can leave their office without an escort and no phone calls!  Not sure what’s going on but the Secret Service guys are running around looking for something.  Britney thinks it might be a terrorist threat.  Holy sh*t!

Day 13 – Barry’s back!

The Prez is back today and in a bad mood.  Apparently the foreign trip didn’t go so well.  Michelle is on a rampage about something too.  I can hear her barking orders all the way down the hall.  From what I’ve heard, she and the Secret Service guys don’t get along too well.  Anyway “Bill” the senior intern stopped by and told us to keep our heads down and look busy (even though we don’t have anything to do).  So I guess I’ll just do the blog.  Good thing my computer screen doesn’t face the door!

Day 9 – while the cat’s away…

Yesterday I got three new suits, ties, shirts, a custom pair of Nike Skeets (sweet!) and  a bunch of other stuff with our clothing stipend money. Thinking about a new watch too but can’t decide if I want a Tag or a Rolex.. keep you posted on that.

Been like a party around here this week with Biden running the show.

Today for lunch there was a big spread for all us interns and other staffers in the Roosevelt Room: oysters, caviar, imported cheese, etc., even Champagne (but I don’t think we’re all of age to drink here – LOL!)  Even some of the Secret Service guys got in on the act.

I could’ve eaten the caviar all day (and practically did) but Britney doesn’t like it so she gave hers to “Bo” the Dog who lapped it right up. Hilarious!

Day 1 – my first day!

Well, it’s my first day as a White House intern!  I’m sitting here in my tiny office now waiting for word on my first assignment.  They gave us all shiny new laptops so I thought I’d start a little blog about my experiences here.  I’m also getting a little bored.

In case you’re wondering, we (my fellow interns and I are) are part of a new group they just brought in.  Rumor has it they knew yesterday’s elections were gonna be a legislative bloodbath for the Democrats so they’re focusing on the executive and I guess they needed bodies.  I also keep hearing there’s some kind of “shake-up” going on around here.

So the day started out kind of interesting.  I had never been to the White House before.  They said it really wasn’t a good day to “orient” us as things were a little chaotic trying to get the President ready for his press conference and all.  But we were given kind of a mini-tour of the back offices in the West Wing.  After a quick pat-down by the Secret Service guys, we met our tour guide “Bill” who is one of the senior interns.  Bill walked us through the halls pointing out some of the various offices: the Personnel Office, the Political Affairs Office (which includes the Muslim Outreach suite), the National Security Advisor’s Office, the Arizona War Room (yes, they actually have that), the Office of Media Affairs (also known as the Fox News war room), the SEIU and Acorn suite of offices and the Move On office which they say Mr. Soros sometimes uses when he’s in town.  We passed by the Oval Office but it was locked.  I thought I heard Biden’s voice.

Anyway, can’t wait to find out what my assignment is!

PS. Haven’t seen “Barry” yet.  That’s what someone told me they call Obama around here, but not to his face.  🙂
