I'm interested in a shirt. Adult medium, I'd think.

I'm trying to figure out how to work this evening. I think I'm going to try to get my housemate to drive me into the city and take the Metro home. Stupid ****ing suburbs.

14th and K is SE, right? And chimbley, I have your phone number in case I get lost or whatever, the area code is 202?

i can't believe you posted that
* must kill chimbles

[edit] it really is a beautiful hat though,, and as i've received several "comments" on it from my coworkers here at the office, i don't think i'll take it off.

dress code what?
who needs it?
i think i'm going to go change into my biking clothes and tell em to shove it.[/edit]

sounds like a smelly idea, tink.

folks have been asking, so i must answer...
everywhere we're going tonight serves food. perhaps we'll plan on fooding at stop #2? or so? i leave it up to the group, but no, we're not going pillaging on an empty stomach. we got waaaaaay too drunk too early last time we did that.

last night was great!
good fun mixed with good people = good times.

i have photos to prove it too!

so we rolled over to arlington to hit up some pilsners at Dr. Dremos
we caused quite a stir with all our bikes piled against a wall inside
but not nearly as much as when we were leaving!!


after a nice drag up the crescent trail to bethesda
we found ourselves at Rock Bottom for food and drink a'plenty
there we holed up in our very own pirate cove and made merry


after that was a messy ordeal involving 4 bars in downtown
in the pursuit of the pitcher we ended up at Harry's
ChimbleySweep looks like she had a bit too much!!
(consider this my retaliation for that hat photo )


We were joined by fellow riders from the WUSS delegation for most of the night
BIg up fellas! We'll see you again one of these Tuesday nights.

I was really pleased with the evening.
The pirates rule!!!!


oh,,
and another phrase to add to my growing list of tink-isms
"heey guy!"
