Sorry For Light Posting
But don't say I didn't warn you. There were a couple of great things that happened today.
I may as well start with the "this might have sucked big time but it turned out all right after all" thing. After a morning of running around, I wanted to take some friends to a dim sum restaurant in the Alexandria area, which was a bit of hike from where we were. So it's nearing 2:00pm on a day we didn't start out with breakfast (apart from coffee.) We were all notably peckish yet when we arrived at the restaurant, it was closed. Not for the day, not for a while, I mean, shut down, rent this space closed. Arrgh! However, by luck or the residue of Providence, the closed restaurant is about a block from my favorite Chinese restaurant so we were able to sit down to a delicious lunch only a few minutes after being DEnied. Our hunger may have seasoned the meal.
And I have to tip my hat to my blogging partner the Enigmatic Misanthrope who gave me a call this evening and it was a pure delight to talk with him after not having done so for a while. Good info, good laughs, good connection. You're my bud, bud.
Otherwise Lois and Lana are still here and they are the world's most perfect house guests. If I were a less moral man, I would try to steal these ladies away from their lives and start a cult with a compound and a community built all around us. But my cult would be small beer compared to their lives. Pity.
