That night they had a big dinner with entertainment from Michael Cavanaugh, lead in the current Broadway musical "Moving' Out".
There were hundreds of people at the dinner and it was really delicous. We sat in the back since we are staff. Once the music started we started clapping, singing, dancing, etc. And everyone else just sat there looking all bored and uptight (like most people here on the east coast). Later we made our way to the front to dance, by the stage. Here are some pictures. The first one is of Kathleen and me (not a great picture, because I look like I'm about to fall asleep or something, but I curled my hair and I wanted you to see). This was before the dinner--we went to a restaurant to sit on the patio and get some drinks (or in my case, free water).
The second picture is of Stephanie and her husband Dominik. Stephanie's last day is tomorrow. They are moving to Lexington, KY because her husband just graduated from Georgetown Law school and he has a clerkship there for a year.
The third picture is of Kara and her husband, Mike.
This next picture is of one of the lobbyists that I work for and his wife-Peter and Alice. They are the funniest people ever. And he is fun to work for. Alice also got on the stage to dance with the band.
Well, now that ya'll have seen the fun people I work with I feel ok with leaving this city. I have packed up all of my things and sent most of it with a guy who left for Utah today. My room is now empty and I love it. This makes it official. I have to leave. Too bad I still have two more months of living here. Liz is coming to visit for the 4th of July and then after she leaves it won't be long until I move away!! Yay!
I'll have more to post in the next couple weeks with pictures from kickball, Memorial day in New York City, and the BBQ this weekend. Stay tuned.
