It's Friday- storm's a-comin'!
Last Saturday we went and saw random221b's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. It was fantastic, and people in the DC area should really try to go! On Sunday, I decided to go downtown to the National Geographic- it was the last weekend for their "Race to the Pole" exhibit. I'm kind of fascinated with Antarctic exploration, so it was right up my alley. A very nice exhibit- there wasn't a whole lot that was new to me, but it was cool to see the artifacts and dioramas. While I was down there, I also went through their exhibits on the Etruscans and Hiram Bingham’s photos of Machu Picchu, both of which were also well worth seeing.

My car was still having problems starting, and I eventually had to call AAA to jump it to get it back to Goodyear. Guess what the AAA guy found out? Goodyear had actually forgotten to install the new battery I paid for! Grrrrrr… Luckily for them, they were abjectly apologetic (and gave me a certificate for a free oil change, too). Then I had to bring it back because installing the new battery triggered the alarm system (which I had never had activated by CarMax, so that was a complete surpise) - the lights were blinking although the horn wasn’t sounding.

That, and some other things that happened that day, got me into a sneaky hate spiral. Gotta watch out for that. I suppose having a 5.8 magnitude earthquake didn’t help my composure any, but still…

Now we have a hurricane bearing down on us, which I’m mostly succeeding in not fretting about. We were planning on going to the cabin (well out of the swath) anyway, and I’m hoping it won’t be too bad in the DC area. I hope everyone in the path will take care and that things won’t be too bad for them, too.

Walls sway, ground ripples-
A reminder of the deep,
Shifting miles beneath.
