If there were no brunches I would be so fit.

And if there were no gyms, I may have died by now.

Let's see, pretty boss weekend. I met Blake at Duplex immediately after he had finished a giant filing on Friday night and was a little frazzled. Uber was also offering free rides to or from gay bars and LGBT centers as a post-Orlando promotion so I partook to get there on time. We had a couple of drinks and enjoyed the start of the Breakfast Club party before it got too loud/annoying, then went off to DIK Bar and then JR's.

We were pretty lazy and useless on Saturday other than me going to the office for a couple of hours and attempting unsuccessfully to fix my broken trunk latch. Then that evening Elliott texted us to come to Duplex (again) to celebrate his birthday. I misunderstood and thought he was bartending, which when done on one's birthday can actually be fun. But he was serving, so B and I sat with him and watched Zoolander and some post-Orlando LGBT awards show on Logo in between him tending to his section. Finally he and Sara wrapped up there, by which time Brett, Stu, Will S., and other characters had materialized and we all moved over to Larry's. And like prior visits to the Larry's basement, we played the random category guessing game where you hold a Smartphone to your forehead and your friends yell out clues to you, with the goal of guessing as many of the nouns as possible in 60 seconds. I'm a terrible guesser but am actually a decent describer of clues to others, so there's my utility to the Mad Max world after the apocalypse. :)

Sunday wasn't bad either. Even though it's hot, we certainly haven't reached the heights of 2010 or 2011, and it's fine to be outside with sunscreen. I walked to the nearly deserted gym around noon, then showered and on my way out one of the only other locker room denizens complimented my (admittedly very short) shorts in a rather cruisey way. I think I'm flattered? From there I met Tyler for brunch and we wandered for a bit before settling on Duke's Grocery. We even sat on the patio since there was a shady spot available, and there was so much bacon in my sandwich that I should probably have gone directly back to the gym. We caught up and had an excellent leisurely conversation; Tyler had some great insights on politics and the role of Big Federal Agencies like those that direct our work.


For real, that's a lot of bacon.


Work today wasn't particularly notable, except that Boss Man for some reason decided to open our staff meeting by asking us to share our feelings about the Brexit vote and consequences. That burned at least 10 minutes but maybe we all feel better now? No idea.

On any future DC trips, go to Duke's Grocery. They produce this and many other amazing menu items every day.

If ever I make a trip there, shall do!

This is presuming you could get me out of the museums long enough of course. I have always wanted to visit the Smithsonian museums and the National Arboretum.
