Scorpion

whuf

Good times last night hanging with mscongeniality. First, a belated birthday dinner at one of those cooking food on your table places, which was downright tasty. Also, everyone loves the onion volcano.* Afterwards, we retired to her place to watch the original Bedazzled, which I have to admit is pretty damn good.

Tragically, though, the Metro failed me again. I hit West Falls Church approximately one minute too late to catch the next eastbound Orange line train. So I waited. Got the next one, and made my transfer at Metro Center... about thirty seconds too late to grab my Red line home. Gah. There's so few trains run that late that those delays really add up. Eventually caught the last train home, hopped on the last bus home, so it all worked out. But still.

And then I stayed up for a bit talking, not having had seen M. all day. Meaning only a couple hours sleep. Meaning I am dead tired now. Whuf indeed. I really hope I don't accidentally fall asleep at my desk.

Tonight, a little housecleaning.
Tomorrow, people coming over for a cinematic treat.
Sunday, munchkin.

* - Yes, my next band will be named Onion Volcano.

"Order 17 is a document little-read today, yet it essentially granted to every foreigner in the country connected to the occupation enterprise the full freedom of the land, not to be interfered with in any way by Iraqis or any Iraqi political or legal institution."
