HOH loves a good roundup of which Members of Congress are sleeping in their offices, and the AP has the latest estimate: Around 40 Members are bunking out in their official digs rather than renting apartments. And according to the story, no Senators are believed to follow suit.The AP also has a few fun details from life as a member of the In-Office Caucus. The AP reporter dropped in on Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.), who spent a recent evening in a T-shirt and blue jeans. He dined at his desk on grilled chicken and Trader Joes Pav Bhaji warmed in the office microwave. He drank milk from a plastic gallon jug, watched TV as the Pirates edged past the Cubs and glanced at a Web site, Catholic Advocate.Good times.The AP also says Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) hangs a sign on his door to alert cleaning crews: Member sleeping, it announces. Miembro durmiente. Dem Dance NightTonight, the Democratic Club is losing its coat-and-tie image and morphing into a club with a slightly different connotation (think more In da Club than country club). The venue is hosting a party called L.O.T.U.S. 2.0, with guest DJs Catlin ONeill, a staffer to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and Jessica Barba, staffer to Rep. Tom Perriello (D-Va.). Its a bit of a case of the mice playing while the cats are away a Democratic staffer notes that most Members will be jetting home after votes tonight, freeing staffers up for a night when they can put aside their BlackBerrys.Submit your hot tips, juicy gossip or comments here.Cant get enough HOH?
