the rest of the weekend

But first, let's take a good long look at what I'll be sporting at the gym today.


HA HA!  Hope that was worth your life, Mr. Bee!
Note: I had been awake for less than 30 seconds.  I am not always this beautiful.
Additional note: I am very overdue for an eyebrow (among other things) wax.

NOW.  For the rest of the weekend!  After my lovely ride yesterday, we went to a restaurant in Del Ray that I've always wanted to try because I hear it's amazing, Fireflies.  I am pleased to report that it was quite delicious.  I am also pleased to report that I ignored all of the healthy menu items and had a cheeseburger with bacon & BBQ sauce and it was the best recovery meal EVER.  I can't remember the last time I had a big, greasy cheeseburger.  I barely made a dent in the fries though, and they were the yummy crispy baked kind.  Mmmm.

After that, we drove up into DC.  The original plan was to park on the Mall (HA, I know) and walk around to see some monuments and things.  We were thwarted by a) 5 quadrillion people b) zero parking and c) the 105-degree heat index.  So we plan-B'd it: put the top down on the car, did a driving monument tour, stopping with flashers on to take pictures and just generally be an annoyance to the district.  It was actually a ton of fun!  

We drove around the Mall, over the Memorial Bridge & back, and then down the GW to Mount Vernon & back.  It was nice to ride around and take a look at all the stuff that is usually just background to my traffic-induced-road-rage.  

Now, my lip and I have to go do some work.  I hope everyone had a great weekend!

  2. OMG, ouch!!! That crazy, crazy bee. sheesh

    Um, your driving tour? that's genius. A bike tour might be even more genius - but given your circumstances, I think you definitely made the right choice (i.e. not slowly dying in that insane heat/humidity) :)

  5. Oh man--that stinks! I hope the swelling goes down quickly.

    DC is so pretty..I'm so close to it and yet hardly ever take advantage of it. Good call on the car tour, though.

  6. Sorry about the bee sting, but I'm glad you didn't crash the bike during his attack. You have some serious coordination skills! Thank you for posting a picture of my most favorite meal! ;) Hope you had a good day today and the swellings gone down some!
