I wrote a whole intro for this post on the Metro this morning (had plenty of time because of delays) and for some reason the damn WordPress for iPhone app ate it. It’s been such a long time since a post has vanished this way I had forgotten about this particular bug. I’m at work now and don’t have time to re-create it, alas, so I’ll just note the important items:
Sorry there are so many pictures here. I’ll try to not get behind again.
May 18: The most bizarre cake I've ever seen made it's way into the kitchen next to my office.
May 19: One of my favorite buildings in my neighborhood is the Grace Church Condos, which is exactly what it sounds like - a former church converted into homes. It's a beautiful building, and seems to be a great community as well... the residents are always outside hanging out grilling or playing with their dogs.
May 20: I needed to take some pictures of my kitchen for a post for the work blog, and they ended up being the only ones I took, so - without meaning to - I killed two birds with one stone.
May 21: Over the course of a few very blue-skied days, I noticed that the new roof over the Eastern Market station looked really cool from the bottom of the escalators.
May 22: It's officially summer -- I spent Friday night hanging out with my friends under the Rickey cubes, listening to free jazz and drinking wine.
May 23: My geraniums are growing like weeds.
May 24: This is (I think) the coolest photo I took at Rolling Thunder. I like that Steve is in the rear-view mirror and that Suzy is relaxing on her bike with her feet up.
May 25: Megan & Michael clowning around at her Memorial Day picnic.
May 26: I had noticed that new bike racks had gone up my the Dupont south Metro exit, but until I saw it empty, I didn't know it spelled "bike." I then - of course - wanted to know what the other half said.
I took a couple of photos on May 27, but the files got corrupted somehow. Sigh.
May 28: Ah... the other half of the bike rack says "here." So, "bike here." Nice.
May 29: I've seen a few "Smart Cars" around DC, but this is the first time I've seen two parked together.
May 30: For my birthday, my friend Marlene made me a beautiful lap quilt, which I have been guarding carefully from the cats, given their penchant for inappropriate vomiting. It hadn't been out for five minutes yesterday when the cat found it and curled right up on it. And so, after taking a picture, it went into the cedar chest for its own protection.
May 31: The whole team from the Old Job got together for a cookout in honor of one of my former colleagues, who is now moving on, too.
