Obviously, I haven’t been around much lately. The reason for that, as some of you know, mainly had to do with a whirlwind trip to Washington, followed by a week of holidays that ended up not really being holidays.
The trip to Washington was amazing, and Scott and I are definitely going to be going back there for a longer visit. The Epilepsy Walk with Lana was fantastic (although, with the slow speed of the crowd, you’d think it was more of a zombie walk), and we had a blast. Clark Kent (Lana’s BF) invited along one of his friends, and we all had fun looking at the sights, and just goofing and laughing. It looked like there was a great turnout for the walk, and it felt amazing to be there supporting my bestie in something that is so important to her.
We also managed to hit up all the ‘site-seeing’ spots that were on my must-do list, and THE INTERNATIONAL SPY MUSEUM BECAUSE SPIES ARE SO COOL! For reals, I could have spent an entire day there. We spent two hours though, which was also pretty long and pretty awesome. Apparently, from the moment we stepped into the spy museum, I pretty much had my Disney Face on.
Scott and I flew back home at 6am the Sunday morning, so like I said, it was pretty whirlwind. But a blast. Both of us had more fun than we’ve had in a while, and although we were exhausted, decided the trip was definitely worth it. And this time, Lana and I actually got a BUNCH of photos together, unlike our usual one or two, so YAY. The only downside of course, was we never ran into Obama.
We did however encounter a rather disturbing protestor out front of the Whitehouse, who called himself an Amerrorist. He looked like a hippie (with a chain necklace that was completed with a USB key), was shirtless, and holding a sign that read ‘If you get me high, I promise to harrass our government. On his chest was written ‘FREE LUNCH’ pointing down to his wang. I should have snapped a picture, but we were in such shock at what we saw that it didn’t cross my mind until AFTER we booked it away.
Other than that, of course, the day was pretty calm. It was also the Cherry Blossom Parade day, so we caught the tail end of that and were wowed by how many gorgeous cherry blossom trees there were in full bloom around the city.
We also learned that the Secret Service’s vehicle of choice is not a sleek, black sedan like they show in the movies, but is really a white Dodge Caravan. Yup. Apparently the Secret Service is like the Soccer Moms of the government and espionage world.
