Topic: Crazy Encounters
Hello Internet People! It's 2010 and I can't believe I've been on and off this blog for, gulp, 7 freakin' years. I think it's been 7, well, close to 7 since I think I started this in the fall of 2003. Back when I started my masters, that still isn't finished. Sheesh - don't be so judgy people. It's hard to write a thesis about television and it's importance on the political agenda. Or something like that.
In any case, 2009 was a huge year. HUGE! Started out like any other year, but quickly included trips to NYC, Chicago, London and Paris. First time in Europe, people and let me tell you, it was AWESOME! Especially the ride in the chunnel. Ok - so that wasn't the highlight, but I don't think I'm capable of picking one highlight b/c it was all awesome. Well, except perhaps for the fact that just after I had been hanging out in Paris's Gare du Nord train station, everyone's favorite tabloid star Lindsay Lohan was spotted there as well. I missed her though...C'est la vie!
Then came summer which included making many new friends, a trip to middle Pennsylvania and a fateful night out at the bar on the bottom level of The Black Cat in DC. Those who were there know what I'm talking about, but suffice to say it had been a long, long time since I opted not to cab home and instead sleep on someone's couch to have a bit more time to chat a particular lady up (or anyone up for that matter.) Fast forward to a sweet tubing/camping trip and here we are 6 months later (almost)...so far, that 6 months (almost) has included Las Vegas, the Steelers, TransSiberian Orchestra, Hipster Night, Sticky Rice, Granville Moore's, a Real World DC sighting, Rock n Roll Hotel, Bowling, the National March for Equality, David Yurman, U2, the Chick Fil A bowl, the Delta Queen, silent q's, scramble, darts and most of all, tons of laughter and fun (oh and maybe some cocktails.)
So, if 2010 starts even half as good as 2009 ended? I'd put myself in the pretty lucky category. Thanks Halli!
