so the #snowquester didn’t live up to its name.  though i was furloughed for the day and sequestered on my sofa, the snow part of the snowquester never came to fruition.  but while i was making a jenny-shaped indent on my sofa cushions there was a #filiblizzard going on up on the hill.  not familiar?

sen. rand paul ended his day-long filibuster at 12:38 a.m. thursday, almost 13 hours after he began speaking. the kentucky republican tried to stall a confirmation vote on cia director nominee john brennan.

he took to the senate floor at 11:47 a.m. et.

and as a snow storm swirled outside wednesday in the nation’s capital, paul started his own twitter hash tag that encapsulated his hours-long stand-off on capitol hill: #filiblizzard.

ahhhh, twitter.  the joys, and hashtags, you bring to my life.
