here’s the 411 of this grand old week of july.
we had a party on harvard sam’s roof. harvard sam is just that- a kid named sam that goes to harvard. he’s great. also great? THIS ROOFTOP LOCATION. hi, hello this is his rooftop view. bless you, building height restrictions! i hate paying for the bus because generally speaking, i can walk faster than the bus drives in traffic… plus it means i get to leave work earlier for my meetings, which, also a plus. this photo is just a gentle reminder of a perfect day with a BREEZE and only 37% humidity instead of the usual 500%. i might be on “official business” at the us capitol, but i have a feeling all the cred that comes with that is negated by the fact that i regularly carry a child’s backpack as a purse. last week we signed on a new place! yep! lookie here what a beaut! in full disclosure, we are actually living in that hole basement in the lower righthand corner and one of the bedrooms has no windows, but it is charming and perfect. also this church is around the corner, so i am feeling right at home in all my sins. on fridays we have meetings with various big wigs in washington instead of doing internships. last week we had one at the us treasury where we had to get about a gillion background checks and carry special passes. the ceiling ended up being more interesting to me than the actual speaker, so i spent much of the time gawking upward. outside the treasury. all the columnsdc has a plethora of good restaurants. they are making me broke. i like the ones devoted to salads. dc is probably the healthiest place in the nation, and i laugh every time i see a businessman walking down the street holding one of these salad pods. it is a common occurrence, so i spend most of the day in stitches, as you can expect. double points if they’re wearing a fitbit, too. another gem? THE FOOD TRUCKS! my intern friend and i spend an embarrassing amount of time some days stalking the cookie truck. the chocolate chip! the nutella! the oatmeal raisin! they are all spectacular. one day he was close, so we went after our briefings. this number is an oatmeal raisin topped with coffee ice cream. eaten after my salad lunch, naturally. taken after i probably exclaimed something like, “COOKIE TOAST! LET’S MAKE EVERYONE JEALOUS!”another highlight of my week? picking up my bike. i didn’t write about my accident yet, but to make a long story short, i was riding down this streetand it turned into this hill….and i lost control and ended up running into this treeand falling off and blacking out.and it completely effed my bike fork. expensive repairs are on the horizon. but in the words of john legend, “… cuz all of me loves all of you, love your curves and all your edges, all your perfect imperfections”
