I was inspired to post this particular video because the wind in your nation's capital is currently at GALE FORCE, blowing all plans of what to wear out the window. I mean, I'm talking about some serious WIND people. My car just got blown out of its lane. So, the natural seque is
All I want is a room somewhere, far away from the cold night air...It just came into my head! "Lots of chocolate for me to eat..." Oh yes!
I'm feeling a bit discombombulated at the moment. The nice restful day I had planned evaporated when I came home last night to a note from the condo office informing me that I needed to completely clear out the storage unit on my balcony, by Monday morning, because they're doing some fiber optic rewiring thing. Monday would be the day after Sunday. The day of the marathon. I couldn't really envision myself coming home from the marathon and hauling nine years of accumulated crap out of the unit; so that was today's excitement, along with laundry, and 27 phone calls to Bex and the Other Jen (who I did my best to scare the hell out of but she was unflappable), trying to figure out What Not to Wear. And where to meet in the morning? Oh my God, forget the marathon, it's the details that will kill you!
So now, I am finally, finally trying to get things in order for the morning. I plan to leave home around 5 a.m.-ish. Meet the gang at the Organisation for Autism Research booth at 7 a.m. (that's right i'm leaving two hours early. Parking.), who have generously offered to store all of our gear. And then? Then it's off the bed to sleep the sleep of the dead (note to self: turn back clocks!!!)
And finally, thank you thank you thank you for all your encouragement and for making me laugh so hard things came out of my nose.
You rock. And You Know Who You Are.
