We'll see.

Both of these lights have come on before, but usually go away the first time I start it up again after letting it sit over night.

One says there might be something wrong with the airbag system (kinda worrying with all the miles I'm putting in...) and the other says there might be something wrong with the emissions system (but that has come up before as a result of the gas cap not being on tight enough.)

If they are both still on before I head back, I might take the time to stop and have them checked out.

Yeah, it's always gone off after a couple of days, and it always seems to happen when I don't fill it myself. And this morning was the only time on the trip I didn't do it myself.

The airbag one has shown up on really cold days, but gone away when it warms up again. Just a dicey sensor is my guess...

ah last night was a good time. hardware bar in scranton. though going in the room with the 18-20 year olds made me feel old. I had a good time drinking pitchers of long island iced tea.

Sitting in the Smithsonian cafe, having a snack.

Walked all around the city today, gawking at monuments.

Just took a picture of one of the original C3PO costumes.

I'll upload it when I get a chance.

Think I'll walk down to the White House before packing it up for the day, and trying to get the heck out of the city before rush hour.

Dinner with Mr. Farlander tonight.

It's kinda weird to think about...

It's going to be even weirder when you wake up in a seedy motel room bathtub, discovering that I have stolen your kidney and sold it on the black market. I mean, had dinner. Shoot, what did I say?

I guess I should report that Keyan was (maybe?) surprisingly normal and civilized.

(Except for perhaps that one moment where he tried to hack off one of my limbs with a steak knife... But that was perfectly justified and understandable.



My first face-to-face with another XWA'er was completely dramaless.

Hopefully this becomes something of a trend. Nitro has plans to come to Boston this summer... And Cracken has been talking about a Beantown excursion for years. And perhaps it's time to get off my butt and get a bowling lesson or 2 from the other Mass local...

Anyway: gonna hit the museums as soon as they open tomorrow, so time to try to catch a little shut-eye.

Dramaless? I took like...two wrong turns. What if we never found the mall and were lost for all eternity? That **** was drenched in drama.

I could travel on over to boston someday...

Vanilla Ice was awesome!!! but it was kindof a push-fest tons of people easily 5,000 people in there. plus girls gone wild was filming...saw some nice tits.

I tried getting drunk but failed. I make my own drinks much better (as in not watered down). pregaming next time. bottling it in a unmarked container, drinking it down in the parking garage then going in. lol cheaper to do that.

No clue what i'll do tomorrow. I might attempt to go to the gym. or at least get a couple sets of pushups and situps down. probably play some mass effect.

not looking forward to going back to work sunday...however i am 9-6 so that ain't that bad...least i dont gotta close by myself.

gonna drink a bottle of water and crash for the night. hopefully i wont get hungover in the morning.

Living situation really isn't all that much better.

Gonna head to MCC tuesday to talk to them about financial aid and going back for a Paralegal Certification. It's a **** job that pays alot more than I make now. (Avg Starting is 35-39k/year! +overtime! O.O) It's about 15 months of pure hell working full time then school full time, but it's totally worth the results.

My dad laughed and told me I shoulda done that 3 years ago.

Did all of Air and Space and most of American History and African Art yesterday.

Walking through museums can be pretty exhausting.

Natural History and at least one of the big art galleries today.

Maybe the Spy Museum if I have time.

Got through about half of the Natural History bldg before I got totally overwhelmed, not only with the displays, but by the throngs of families blocking every cool exibit, so I left, and went through all the Asian art displays... Which were empty, and amazing.

I'll finish the Smithsonian tomorrow, which leaves Tues for a few of the other places around the city.

There's still so much I know I'll miss... But I feel like I got to see a lot.

Had dinner with a couple of former students in Alexandria tonight. Great seeing them. Very cool town.
