Combine beach week, the office holiday party, and more balloons than a 5-year-old’s birthday and what do you get? The conventions.
n. one who annoys by continually demanding how everyone else got their convention credentials.
n. meals made from the minibar when you cannot nab lunch or dinner reservations (All the restaurants were booked, so we made do with mini-apolis.)
n. inappropriate e-mail sent to VIPs, used to claim some sort of relationship with said VIP (see Scarlett Johansson and Barack Obama).
St. Pauli girl
n. the girl who gets uber excited then totally wasted each night after the speeches.
v. to wear signs; pins; and head-to-toe red, white, and blue with the belief that the more you wear the closer your candidate will get to the White House.
n. racy lingerie worn under your campaign tee in the hopes of hooking up with one’s convention crush.
n. interactions between accredited media and bloggers housed in different areas of the convention parking lot.
n. the last available motel room in Denver or St. Paul, located a good half-hour drive from everything and still $1,000 a night. (See you tomorrow; I’m headed back to my woe-tell room.)
For more fun with words, we nominate our book, The DailyCandy Lexicon: Words That Don’t Exist but Should.
