Quickly babies because I feel as though the world has turned into a vat of things to do and I’m just swimming in it. I know how to swim — quite well in fact — but it doesn’t change the immediate need to understand that I’m in the water as it were and am therefore asked to survive by moving calmly yet efficiently. How’s that for an extended metaphor? Also, I miss swimming laps. I need to find a new pool…
I have many things today but first I want to give a shout out to my friend who sat and had a few beers with me last night and actually asked me some things that no one’s asked me in a while. Like, “Are you glad you decided to stay in DC?” and “How’s work?” It is not an untrue thing to say that people here get very involved in their own things and unless you put your life in their faces they may never ask how you are. I’m guilty of the same. So it was a nice reminder that sometimes people can just relax and reconnect. Even if it does get a little deep. (I can’t help it okay. wink.)
So, Just for fun — and I’ll take better pictures at a future date of our actual team — here’s what flag football looks like along the Anacostia River. That’s the coach reffing in the foreground and waaaaaaayyyyyy over on the other side of the field in the red shirt is Bay setting the line. This is Iowa and Virginia, both really good teams I’m glad we don’t play. Anyway, this is really for you family, so you can see what I’m into up here. Also, Virginia’s quarterback was wicked hot. But that’s really neither here nor there.
And now for randoms:
So much talk lately about how the nature of science is not consensus thinking. Exactly because of this kind of thing.
I have a hurt hand today as well Michael Vick. Just put some ice on it. You’ll be fine.
Number 1 is true. Also, Karma Police is one of the top 10 songs of awesomeness.
I do this, come by it honestly from my Pops, and I’ve never been more proud.
Finally, this has been floating around. It. Is. Incredible. Dance people. Be amazed.
