I’ve had meetings in D.C. today, so thought I’d sprinkle in some fun and friends. Enter a real mish-mosh of my present, past and future. Here’s the cast of characters: Eric: a fellow author and consultant; Leah and Leslie: working to end teen violence with the Century Council and Jen: one of my fave people from college who is now a lobbyist and political powerhouse. (I’ll work on her campaign someday…I’m an awesome envelope stuffer.) Add some amazing Thai food to this gathering and you had a serious good time.
