The Post Office is kind of a jerk.

And other moving stories.

I arrived just fine in DC on Friday night, and promptly parked my car in the garage and didn't unpack anything save a few days of clothes and toiletries. Interspersed with going out, I've been slowly unpacking and organizing the apartment, and it's plenty big enough to absorb my stuff without looking hoarder-ish. It will still be helped by future purchases of shelving, a wardrobe, and a dining room table, but in the meantime it's working out fine.

Recent events: Friday night Brian and I had dinner at Annie's and then embarked on a whirlwind tour of second home and Nellie's, interspersed with Jameson shots. Saturday we met Keith, Tristan, and Pat for brunch, then all but Pat embarked for Tysons Corner to buy jeans and housewarming gifts, and we somehow had to visit two bars to withstand the maul on a spring weekend. That night I went to Elisabeth's new condo for her housewarming party, and talked to she and Renee and Melissa for a while before running out of steam and taking a cab home.

Sunday was Stephen R.'s graduation party, in which Chris H., Tristan, Brian and I played the most bumbling game of pool I've ever been a part of (but let's be real, I contributed more than 25% of the incompetence), drank extensively, ate Norbert's amazing spread of food, and hung out with children. Then after a brief stop into second home to say hi to Brett, we came home and ordered pizza. And were not prepared when the delivery guy actually called. Oops.

Now back to reality. I've missed the mail carrier twice when trying to deliver packages so I physically went to retrieve two of them today. The third one ended up at a different post office so I've requested re-delivery, which may or may not work out. Gah.

I'm assuming you invited the pizza guy in to join you?
[visions of cliche porn setups in my head, obviously]

Hahaha, noooo. Not that we would have anyway, but this pizza guy was not all that.
