Labor Day Weekend

I'm looking out the window of my room at the Sheraton Rockville, which offers me a leafy vista with I-270 in the background. P is watching As You Like It on the flat-screen tube while we digest breakfast, which ended early thanks to the invasion of the dining room by yuppie parents and their noisy, babbling spawn. We agreed that the Victorians had the right idea about children. That having been said, the new Sheraton Rockville is full of win and awesome, even if they do charge $9.95/day for broadband. Eh. It's worth it to have an Ethernet connection and not wi-fi for a change.

We actually managed to meet up with Mr. B for lunch yesterday, enduring the unusually bad service at the Club TD . It was only after we left that I remembered that this was why I usually ate at the counter there. We picked the Tastee Diner so that B could eat and drink in accordance with his low-sodium/low-fluids dietary regime, since the other options were fast food (bad) or OCB/Denny's (almost as bad). Over lunch I learned how my ex came by her horrible reputation among local fans and artists, which is of strictly academic interest now but does explain a few things; also, P was edified regarding the state of B's health.

Afterwards, we made the run to Brian's place last night by way of the hotel for chicken, beer, fire, and entertaining neighbors. Good times, to be repeated Monday afternoon, and this time I won't be so tired that I get on I-70 going the wrong way after a stop at the local Waffle House for coffee & waffle. Either that or I'll have more coffee first.

Today we're off to the Dunhams', with a stop along the way for sunglasses and earplugs, since apparently the nose hose doesn't completely stop the snoring.

welcome back
hey, the accountemps people called - you got glowing reviews,
of course ;-) Sounds like they are going to come through, eh?
That is a huge win - let the school systems figure out what they
are missing out on, they move slow anyway. Get paying work
and enjoy your return to the world.

Re: welcome back
Thank you! They have indeed come through, getting me out to a PT assignment at Strayer College next week. We'll see how things progress from there.
