Feeling: determineddetermined
Listening: Imogen Heap - Missing You

This place is a mad house. I thought it was bad before. With the president signed in now, there's twice as much to get done. The new staff is trying to get in as smoothly as possible, but that's turning out to be about as smooth as Jeep ride over a mountain covered in land-mines. Everytime I turn around something is broken or someone's lost. And now there's a terrible pounding in my head. Unless that's just Mark beating his head against his desk.

We've all got a million meetings all of the sudden and no one knows where anything is. You'd think that if people are expected to run a country from this building they would have made it a little easier to navigate. I've got Xavier with a map practically nailed to his forehead.

The ball was a beautiful event. I think it really sunk in that I'm really doing it, working in the White House. It was a good night, regardless of the dancing. I almost started to forget how much I hate dancing between trying to hold Mark up and dancing with the President. He is an exquisite dancer. Even better than Andrew was, and that's saying something, Andrew was a fantastic dancer.

But now it's back to writing statements and comments and remarks. It seems like I have to write something new for everytime the President sets foot outside his office.

Yea, you shouldn't nail maps to my forehead anymore. I realize it is insane in here, and you are developing the migraine of all migraines, but think about my head! It can only take so much pain! This nail hurts...*silently sobs*..

It was metaphorical thank you very much. Now stop crying, I'll have to pay for it if you short out that keyboard.

Metaphors hurt too, Kate. Words are weapons, don't forget.

Well, now that we've had our after-school-special Lesson Of The Day, could we get back to work?

Im so happy I was one part of an after-school-special lesson, Kate. I feel like Jeri Blank!

How am I supposed to work? I still dont know where the damn files are. You'd think with Mel right next to me she could show me...

She told you where they are. They're in the side-board thing. You have access to plenty you can do anyway. So don't get cheeky Jeri.

You'll get back to work either way. Thats how this works, you know. You actually do things.

I think it is supposed to have two R's - Jerri.

I do, in fact, understand the reference, kind of. It doesn't matter, get back to correcting my important spelling errors.

I think you mean 'mighty' there Super Proofreader. Maybe you should change your name to Slightly Adequate Secretary.

HEY! I told you where they were! And don't you dare get the idea that I'll be holding your hand around here Cliffie! :)) I have Mark to take care of, and trust me, that is a job for two people.
