I had a great weekend, though- kept quite busy. Friday after work was Baltimore with Katie, Erica, Rohini, Sharif, the Tim, Will, Lacey, and (Lacey's friend whose name might be spelled) Madhu. Many delicious pizzas were consumed at the California Pizza Kitchen. Sharif and Ro and I did a 1/3 1/3 1/3 pizza swap. After dinner was a jaunt to a Baltimore-y souvenir store so that crab-related knick-knacks could be purchased. Katie's baby brother is destined to own a stylin' Baltimore bib. Rock on. We then hit the counter at the Cheesecake Factory, where most of us got ourselves slices of the dangerous dangerous beauty that is cheesecake. (Tim, on the other hand, got a massive slice of chocolate cake that I understand served as four desserts. Ye gods.) We took our rich sweet prize back to my place, where there was more eating and talking (and a little bit of snoozing). A good evening.
Saturday, despite a late start, Katie and I went into DC for a bit. Walked the area around the Foggy Bottom metro stop, explored the Watergate and the Kennedy Center. And the thunder and lightning waited to start until we were safely on the train on our way back. Dinner at Perk later. I was supposed to accompany Erica and Katie to a Rocky Horror cast movie night, but I was cranky and tired, so just headed home for a quiet evening.
Which meant that I was good and rested for our exciting Super Tourism District of Columbia Day! Man, did we do a lot of walking yesterday. Katie and Erica and I walked between the Capitol, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial, the Natural History Museum, the American History Museum, the White House (not in that order). . . The weather cooperated, the company was good, and I think all had a good time. Upon returning to Perk, we were footsore and exhausted. Katie introduced us to Firefly, of which I'm now going to have to see the rest. We headed out for fantastic food at Mandalay. We watched some MST3K. And I went home to fall into bed.
Today I am feeling energetic and cheerful. Odd for a Monday. Exciting. I'm looking forward to my yoga/pilates class this evening. More immediately, I'm looking forward to lunch. Very soon. Very soon.
