Theater Lobbyist

Today I took a couple hours off from lobbying to go out and see a movie about lobbying. I never go out to movies (the last movie I went to see in the theaters was the newest Star Wars flick). This afternoon my buddy Steve called me up to see if I wanted to go; I had nothing going on, I'd read a lot of great reviews for the film, and the theater is only 2 1/2 blocks from my office, so I decided to give it a shot.

If any of you want to know what I do for a living - Go see this movie. It was really, really, really good, and actually made me proud of my vocation. Good stuff, and crazy-funny.

When I came out of the theater, the first thing I saw was the Washington Monument blinking in the distance. On the way back to the office I passed by Ford's Theater and Lincoln's place of death. I looked around at the Capitol and down the street toward the White House. I realized that I was in the cradle of the most powerful government on Earth, and I'm paid to subvert it. I couldn't have been happier.

Look at you all proud of your life. . .I think I shed a tear reading that.

Yeah, the whole Ford's Theater thing - I've always had a tehory that crazy ass Mrs. Lincoln made our 16th President see the 1860's equivalent of RENT. Then the poor bastard shot himself.

I also think there was supposed to be a second shooter for the attempt on Reagan's life - but he forgot to show up.

Feel free to delete these comments...

...and God Bless America.

Nope, Those are definitely tehories.

Tehories aside - I, like jesboud, was touched by this post. You're normally such a crabass about your life, it's nice to see you happy. That doesn't mean you have to go around taking pictures of flowers and bunnies, though. Although, it is a nice picture.

Keep it up, you subvertin' m.f.

I just like to rant (and take pictures of bunnies).
