Live from Capitol Hill - a Challah Shortage & Sweet Video Skills

Well, I'm probably the worst videographer ever. I spent five years getting a college degree in journalism & these are the dazzling videography skills I end up possessing?!

If the light were better & if I weren't so unforgivably zoomed in - the zoom-out function wasn't working, I swear to you I was trying! - you'd have seen that my friend who first mentions the alleged challah shortage is actually holding a half-eaten challah. Clearly we were not in desperate need of dough, so Congress can take its good old time on that one. Focus on health care, guys.

But just to prove that I'm not a total imbecile, I covertly filmed a second round of chatter that quickly devolved into a conversation about Muppets, followed by some incoherent ramblings in German accents. The air-kiss at the end is directed toward our good friend Rebecca, unable to join us on our rooftop dinner because she resides in that other city, NYC.

In closing, let it be known that I hate the Muppets. A lot. Except for those old men who sit in the balcony.

Statler and Waldorf (sp?!) are definitely high class Muppet characters.

As an actual Film/Video major I can tell you that I neer expect Journalism majors to ever know how to shoot. You are supposed to know how to report and look good.
