Back to New Hampshire

Sorry about that unrelated rant before. Nathaniel told me last night that he had a $188 bill for the period ending December 15, which means that is just for the time he used his cell phone over thanksgiving, and does not include the 1-2 hours a day we have spent on the phone over winter break. So I am a bit pissed off about that this morning and I felt the need to alert other people so they don't end up in the same situation. But now back to New Hampshire.

Things have been getting a little easier. New interns have come in, so now they are at the bottom of the pack and I am less expendable than I was in the beginning. Plus, Steve and I confronted the volunteer coordinators and the "superinterns" about the way we were being treated, and they have made a conscious effort to make sure that we know we are appreciated. Steve was still having a hard time and decided to go home, so I brought him to the bus in Boston yesterday. But I am staying, and there is a part of me that really wishes I could stay until the primary. Even though I never planned to stay through the 27th because I have to get back to school, I feel like I am copping out early, and I want to stay to the end. But I know I can't - my mom said no way, since missing 2.5 weeks of school would mean I might have to take the semester off, and besides, Nathaniel is flying into Boston on Wednesday and I am his ride back to school! So I will just try to make the most of my time here and do as much as I can for the campaign while I am here.
Consumer Alert: A Completely Unrelated Rant

This is completely OT, but if you are thinking about signing up for Cingular Wireless, don't. If you have the misfortune of having a Cingular cell phone, if you ever see the word "extend" on the screen, do not use it. This is Cingular's sneaky way of telling you that you are incurring roaming charges, if you do not have a nationwide plan. Before using your Cingular phone out of area, make sure you have a national plan. Otherwise, you will be charged at a rate of 79 cents a minute. In other words, don't be like Nathaniel and unknowingly rack up a cell phone bill that will probably be over $1,000 for using a DC cell phone in California thinking you have a nationwide plan!

Airport Craziness

Yesterday was a crazy day. I had told Paky, one of the people I have termed "superwinterns," that I would be happy to pick up other winterns at the airport. So at 2:30 PM yesterday, he asked me to go pick up this girl named Eva at the Manchester Airport. He gave me her cell phone number, and picking her up went really smoothly, except for the fact that her luggage had not arrived on the same flight. But she said that it was not a big deal because her friend was coming in an hour later and she had left a message on her friend's cell phone to get her luggage.

Eva and I talked on the way back, and she is really cool. She is from Texas, and has worked for everyone who has run against George W. Bush, for governor and president. When I got back to the headquarters, I was talking to Nathaniel online, and he was angry about Ralph
