I am no good at blogging. However, the DC trip was amazing. It was the happiest I have been since the fire. And because I enjoyed it so much, I wrote down everything I could remember and listed it here. It's pretty incoherent and won't make much sense to someone who wasn't there, but I am writing it anyway, for myself more than anything. But if you see something and are curious, feel free to ask me and I'll (try to) explain it.
So this is what a train is like...
GA blocked by Amtrack’s wireless service—no anthologies
Meeting intune for the first time in Union Station
Q’s story about the Constitution
Q complaining about his boss and reminding me of my own law clerk that I treat at work, who complains of almost the exact same thing about her boss.
Q’s tidbit about the statues (I looked and looked, but never saw it)
The video game exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery
The Spring and Summer portraits at the National Portrait Gallery
