This morning my Mom woke up and said: “I don’t want to go to work today”. I’m excited to know that 25 years from now, I’ll still be waking up and saying that :(
Those Bloody Vuvuzelas, and Other Thoughts on the...
So it looks like William and Kate got married this morning. I know that some people were up at 4am EST watching it all but I wasn’t planning on doing all that because though I cared, it wasn’t worth waking up early for. Instead I woke up at 6am so I could get to work early and leave at 4pm. Leaving work early is worth waking up early for [see where my priorities are?]. I happened to...

Full Blooded American Men
Guy (sees me looking at him): Are you trying to pick me up?

Me (appropriately shocked at what just happened): So you're American?
Guy: Yea I'm from Virginia.

Starbucks: Where Everybody Knows Your Name
This morning when I walked into Starbucks, one barrista said: “Hey Esi!” [I’m not kidding, they actually know my name]. And then the one at the cash register turned to me and said: “Tall Pike, right?”, sliding a cup of coffee towards me. “Is that for me?”, I asked. “Yep”, he replied. He had made my coffee as soon as he saw me walk through...
Facebook event: If Boehner shuts down the... →
If the Federal Government shuts down, DC residents will no longer get their trash picked up (for a week). This is one idea with how to deal with that problem. My co-worker also pointed out that since parking enforcement will also be discontinued, everyone should also double park in front of John Boehner’s house after they take their trash there.
