Yet another Alternative Spring Break: being tackled by Secret Servicemen

SI has a program called Alternative Spring Break, where SI students go to New York and Washington, DC during the week-long break and do projects for real live organizations to use SI-learned skills and gain new skills and experience.

I'd been hearing about this trip all year and had kind of thought about it, but hadn't given it much serious consideration until Young Matthew emailed me and asked me if I was going. I finally checked out the website, realized I had two days before applications were due, got my rear in gear, applied, and was accepted this week.

So later this month I'll be off to Our Nation's Capital to update the website of the Center for Democracy and Technology and do a bit of sight-seeing on the side. Our hotel is apparently right nearby the White House, so I will be close enough to spit on the president.

But I won't, because my mommy says I oughtn't.

Congrats on your ASB entree. That's awesome.

Oh, but spitting is so much fun! I've heard that DC is like a gray a white wasteland during the winter because all the buildings are marble and whatever's gray and then it's all covered with snow and griminess associated with snow. I hope that you have a lovely time though. :)

I tried when Mr. Shrub visited our own glorious leader's home patch a few months ago, but All The President's Men kept him away from the bad PR we were giving out.

So wait. Does this mean that you're going to spend your Spring Break doing work only at a different location?

Right. And then when I'm done, I have to write a report. :D

I was just there a few weeks ago, and I must say that it is, indeed, quite grey. However, it was also fun fun fun. If you have a chance, take the M out to College Park and see U Maryland and approve my decision.

Because I neeeeed your approval. ;)
