The conversation rambled on from there. Eventually we got to the subject of TV shows and I waxed enthusiastic about The West Wing, which I recently started watching on Netflix:
Me: It’s so much fun! The writing is excellent (it is Aaron Sorkin, after all) and I love that it’s set in Washington, DC, and follows the lives of the senior White House staff. The funny thing is that I watch them and I get all enthralled and start thinking, “Hey, I totally want to have a high-powered Washington job where I’m surrounded by brilliant people and work all the time doing Important Things” — but then it hits me and I’m all, “I’ve GOT a high-powered Washington job where I work all the time with brilliant people — YAY!! . . . oh wait.”
Ashley: Yay, you’re a llama again!
Leave it to Ashley to hit the nail on the head with a movie quote.
