Whoever said that driving in traffic wasn’t fun? Surely wasn’t me, because I think that I’m still enjoying it a little too much.

Finally caught up tonight on the West Wing from Sunday night (episdode 4 for those keeping track at home). I was worried that this season wasn’t going to be up to snuff. If this past episode is any indication of the direction and writing of the rest of the season, then this season will be great, and I wish that I didn’t have to wait a week between episodes. :) Amy, if you’re behind, then you need to catch up! This episode reminded me of some of the greats of the past, and even had me yelling at the end of the episode because I didn’t want it to leave me hanging.

Bonding Sunday

Posted by Thomas Sun, 16 Oct 2005 18:35:55 +0000

If Adan’s away message is correct, then today, I think, is the first Bonding Sunday that I will have missed in the past 6 years. :(

I took the weekend mostly to do nothing, and it was nice. I guess that I did a little for work yesterday, but didn’t do too much. I’ve posted some to the photoblog over the past couple of days. I’m going to try and be sure to post the good stuff from the trip, and I’ve been contemplating throwing together a gallery, so that everybody can see all of the pictures, but I’m not convinced that’s the smartest thing in the world to do.

Also, my external drive isn’t broken at all. I’m sure that everyone was worried about that one…

The answer to all of the DP in the fridge was that they were empty boxes. Or maybe just mostly empty. Now I have quite a collection of boxes.

Since I just dl’ed the West Wing, I’m going to feed my addition.

Here is the good ol’ Onion horoscope of the month. Plus check out the photoblog, as I posted a new pic.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Your future seems to contain a great amount of fluorescent lighting, a lot of spreadsheets, and a great many people trying to avoid meaningful contact with you; basically, everything you went to college for.

Why do I feel like I got hit by a Mac truck today? Or maybe it was more like I ran into a brick wall.

Note to self: when going on long trips, don’t forget your passport, fingernail clippers, and enough razor blades.

Now, I have to go do my laundry because I’m a tool…

Yesterday I got up about 10, I think, and headed to the mall around noon. I walked around taking some pics for several hours. I had phoned James Glueck the night before to see if he wanted to get together since he works in DC. So, we got together around 5, I think, went to a little bar in Georgetown and then walked around G-town for several hours. The Georgetown area really seems to be pretty nice, or at least what I saw of it last night. It has the university, and what seems to me to be pretty much an outside mall. What I mean is that there are all the stores that are just in regular old buildings. Stores that I normally see in an actual mall. Lots of people walking around the streets. Plenty of really expensive townhouses/row houses. But it was nice to catch up with James.

I watched the 2nd episode of WW. Since I didn’t see the first, I think that I missed a couple of things. And after watching it, I realize how much watching episodes one week at a time, with a bunch of comercials in the middle is for the birds.

I didn’t do much today besides chilling in the hotel room. I really need to get the laundry done, and I’m trying to decide between doing it myself tonight, or having it done tommorow… I may try and see the national archives on Tuesday after work. They weren’t open today and won’t be open when I could go by there on Monday. Tuesdays they are open late. While I’m in DC then I might try and do some night shooting. Unfortunately I haven’t bitten the bullet for a tripod, so no real night photography with any length of exposure time. So, I might try and take some pics of well lit stuff. We’ll see.

The Keys to My Heart

Posted by Thomas Sun, 02 Oct 2005 16:27:26 +0000

Why do I post these things? I don’t know…

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.

In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you’re told that you’re loved.

You’d like to your lover to think you are loyal and faithful… that you’ll never change.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was ruthless, cold-blooded, and sarcastic.

Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything… no secrets.

Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.

You think of marriage as something precious. You’ll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.

In this moment, you think of love as commitment. Love only works when both people are totally devoted.

1st week in DC

Posted by Thomas Sat, 01 Oct 2005 00:29:52 +0000

Sorry guys that I haven’t written for the past several days. Between starting the night late after work and going out on the town pretty much every night, it’s been pretty jam packed. I’m pretty sure that I’ve eaten some authentic Szechuan, Vietnamese, and Thai food. I may have reached my Asian food quota. But we did eat at a steakhouse, and I got some decent prime rib (although I think that I ordered it a little too overcooked), as well as some blueberry/strawberry shortcake dessert. The dessert was the best that I’ve had in quite a while. Most of you would know that I really don’t care about food that much, nor about desserts, but this was excellent. I’ve even considered going back just to get it. It was so good. Now that my co-worker flew back to Atlanta, I’ll have a little more time to chill, as well as doing whatever I want. He had lived here before, so he wanted to see certain people and do some specific things. Most of which involved his favorite restaurants. Hence the wide variety of Asian foods. It was a good experience to get to venture out a little bit. The Szechuan food was pretty hot, but not too bad. I probably did sweat some, but it didn’t ruin the rest of the meal.

I would have thought that I might have been able to get up pretty early like I did in England, but that hasn’t been the case. I’ve been sleeping late as I can, which really hasn’t been the best. But I guess that I have been going to bed pretty late, so sleeping is a good thing, and will be keeping me well.

I’m going to try and get up at a reasonable time in the morning and head out to the mall. I’d really like to hit up the sites again and try and take some pictures. I’ve been here before, with my parents, so it’s not too big of a deal. I called up James Glueck and we’ll probably get together sometime. I’m happy about that. He said that the local Aggie club watches the games at a local pub, so we might do that.

But, the thing that pisses me off the most for this particular post and time is the fact that I brought my external drive up here so that I would have some stuff to watch besides crappy TV (I had forgotten how bad TV is, in terms of good programming). I put the drive in my checked luggage, because I didn’t have room in my carry on. Now the drive is acting funny. Hopefully I haven’t destroyed yet another drive and enclosure. This would be quite another blow, since this drive is 300G. Let’s hope that it’s either just crappy USB 2.0, or that my laptop doesn’t really want to play nicely with it today, and that the firewire will work flawlessly when I get back home. I guess that it’s time to put that fibre channel array to use.

Yep, Amy, I’m quite a fan of West Wing. I have the 4th season on DVD and every episode through last seaon on the ol’ computer. I’ll try and catch the second episode of the season on Sunday, but having not seen the first one, I may just actually skip it. I would try and download it at the hotel, but I don’t think that they would approve. It may just have to wait until I get back to ATL.

I’ve also tried to take some pictures while here so far. Like I said I’m going to try and take some pictures on the mall tomorrow or Sunday. Hopefully I won’t get arrested or anything for taking a picture of something that I’m not supposed to. I’ll try and post some, or I may just wait ’til I get back, I dunno.
