A Long Weekend, Suddenly Free

The plan was to take the train up to New Jersey to spend the next three days with Amy and her folks, far away from tourist-season-DC. But Amy took ill, so I cancelled my tickets at the last minute, and suddenly I have the 4th of July holiday all to myself. A neighbor has tickets to some shindig on the roof of the Department of Labor, so the night of the 4th itself is handled, but otherwise I’m using this time to kick back and relax a bit after what has been a very hectic June.

So I only did four things today: I napped, I rollerbladed around a bit, I took impromptu photos of Pandora, and I cut off my sideburns, which were getting kind of long and annoying. I’m just not a sideburns type of guy.
