Sorry…no updates yesterday due to the fact that I attempted to go out after work and explore Old Town Alexandria. Well…it was pretty cool, very preppy, old streets/new buildings, kindof a Red Bank meets Hoboken meets Martha Washington kindof thing. Anyway…after getting dinner there I was walking along when the sky opened up and it started to pour. I ducked into a Cosi/Xando (I was actually pretty surprised that they have those here too; I thought they were only in NY), and had a couple coffees while I waited for the rain to stop. Once it stopped, I started heading back toward the Metro again, only to have it immediately start pouring, soaking me to the bone. The rest of last night was spent drying off and packing.
Today I came in to find out that the girl whose desk I had been sitting at came back from vacation, so I had to spend most of the morning running around until we could figure out a new place to put my stuff. So…a couple hours and a computer setup later, I am back in action. I fly home this afternoon; I should manage to scoot out of here at a decent hour so I can get home and actually do something tonight. Clam Bake tomorrow at Jenks with the rest of the company crew.
