"...and my apartment smells of rich mahogany."--just Ron Burgundy's way of telling you he's important. I'm not particularly important but I had a lot of crazy stuff going on this week.
Wednesday I rocked a suit for the second day of our foreign affairs conference, because I was also having lunch with our kind-of-a-big-deal donor. We went to Harry Browne's, where I had an awesome crab cake sandwich.

Then I threw on some jeans and a tee shirt and drove 4 hours south to Harrisonburg, VA, where we competed at the Madison Cup debates, which was pretty fun. A different format for us--"long table" parliamentary style as opposed to policy, but I guess a change of pace is always refreshing, especially when that pace is much slower than usual.

Got back home tonight at about 9:30 pm, planning on working from home all day tomorrow to prepare for the Elysee Debates, which are being sponsored by the French and German Embassies in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Elysee Treaty. The ambassadors and other dignitaries will be there so it's a really fun and cool opportunity for my students (who are bigtime government nerds...yeah, like I'm not).
