Apparently, everybody’s upset today over Barry’s decision to let Bill Clinton take over the press conference they had together on Friday. Including Michelle, since he told everyone he was leaving because she wanted him at the Christmas party. Everyone else is just saying it made him look unpresidential – like he was turning over being President to Clinton or something!
A couple people heard Michelle say “Barack, you should never have turned that podium over to that pig!”
Intern Bill told us to hide today! Said everything’s “coming to a head” (his words) on a bunch of things: the tax deal blowing up, the Wiki-leaks insanity, terrorist stuff, Michelle flipping out about the holiday tree not standing up straight (yes, true!) .. and on and on! We’ve been told to keep deleting emails but not to leave our office.
I hear A-Rod yelling at someone now! Yikes! Over and out…
They’re letting us go early today for the Thanksgiving holiday! I didn’t finish my Korea memo but they said they don’t need it now anyway. I’m good with that.
Happy Turkey Day! 🙂
Britney and I got a new assignment today: shredding!
This morning, Intern Bill came by with a pushcart with @ 15 boxes of documents on it and told us to get to it. We’ve been at it since then and they keep bringing us more boxes! Ugh!
We’ve been given a short lunch break but then it’s back to more shredding! What a great job!
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!
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!
Nobody’s around so I poked my head into the Roosevelt Rm. Very nice! Couldn’t go in though because carpet cleaners were in there. Apparently “Bo” the dog made a bit of a stain.
Bill stopped by and gave me my intern badge. I guess now I’m official! Woo-hoo! He also mentioned I’ll be getting an office-mate on Monday, another intern. Hmmm…
See y’all Monday!
Went to lunch and now sitting here with nothing to do except play on the computer. This place is like a ghost town! Did they take everyone with them to India?
Think I’ll wander around some more…
Still waiting on my first assignment. I’m told it will come later today. Decided to wander the halls; nice furniture here. I guess there’s some kind of cabinet meeting going on –lots of press types here and there. Also lots of staffers scurrying around getting things ready for the President’s India trip tomorrow.
Think I’ll get some lunch.
