So last night, I was on the platform at Farragut West with Joseph waiting for the Orange Line train in the direction of Vienna. Joseph was parked at Clarendon and graciously offered me a ride home to save me the trouble of waiting for the bus or getting a cab.

All of a sudden this cute girl comes up to me and tells me that she loves my bag. For those who haven't seen my bag, it's one of those ballistic nylon satchel things, but it is red and has a picture of Henrietta emptying a Fabrique Nationale P90 submachine gun into a room full of criminals. It's this picture, but on a bag:
Henrietta is a bad-ass!

My bag also has a bunch of pins and buttons on it, including Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye from Fullmetal Alchemist, Misa from Deathnote and Osaka from Azumanga Daioh, as well as a few other silly anime things. I talk to this girl, who is actually reading a nonfiction book about anime, for a little bit. Then she gets on the Blue Line train, which is going the way I ultimately need to go. And I don't get on that train. I didn't even try to get her contact info.

This is why I am alone.

Got off four hours early. Ate lunch (burger). It was good, but passed s sushi place later and wished I'd had sushi instead. Got the MINI washed. On internet now. Contemplating nap.

Work Stuff: One person who was temporaily gone, now permanently gone. Another person leaving soon. Plus the other guy we knew about. Sucks. Was highly praised by a senor the other day. Always feel awkward in that situation. Like I am a big fraud.

Social stuff: Went to happy hour pre_keane with gitl from Church. Snippet:
GfC: Oh you just had your birthday, how old are you?
PB: thirty-one
GfC: Really?? You look good for your age.
PB:...

Yeah. She quickly said that since she's 26 she thinks all of her friends must be 26. But seriously, is 31 that much older than 26? Geez. She does own a gun, though...

Tech Stuff: Still love the MacBook. Still trying to figure out a bag. Like the Timbuk2, but the clors I really loved are no longer available. Next color refresh not until back-to-school time. Want to haul tis thing before then. May have to settle.
