Reporter Bound for D.C. Seeks Gotcha Questions, Ball Gown, Proper Footwear
Fast forward to November, when we decided it would be fun to reprise our experience. This time, we're legal -- so we could while away the freezing cold hours inside a bar along the parade route! We fancied ourselves sashaying through Georgetown and seducing junior senators.
That, of course, was before I remembered that this time around, I'm a reporter. I could get a press pass! Next thing I knew, I had been granted entree to one and possibly two inaugural balls; credentials to the Press Gallery in both the Senate and House; and a date for an ice-cream social with Congress members Wexler, Klein, Rooney, and Wasserman Schultz. Not to mention at least ten reporting deadlines.
So, if anyone has questions for me to pose to any of our esteemed representatives, bring 'em on and I will try to pull a Geraldo on them as they suck down banana splits in the Library of Congress. Likewise, if anybody has an extra iPhone (for blogging) or ball gown, or happens to know what the hell kind of shoes go from walking-around-on-ice to the dance floor of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, please hook a sister up.
