" To sum up my whirlwind first three weeks in Congress, I've:

  • Been kissed by Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellen -- on stage, no less at the Human Rights Campaign Ball).

  • Had my congressional ID pin accidentally stolen by fellow Freshman Rep. Tom Periello of Virginia.

  • Hosted eight houseguests in our humble, one-bathroom abode on Capitol Hill for the inauguration.

  • Participated in the greatest single outpouring of national pride and emotion our nation has ever seen.

  • And gotten lost (repeatedly) in the labyrinthine passageways beneath the Capitol and House office buildings.
  • "
