The Only Fun Thing About Meetings...

...in DC is that, if you have a little time, you can snap some pictures. This time, sadly, I only snapped one that was anywhere near decent.

Oh, you probably already knew this but something for future reference - when you're walking around DC between meetings, make sure it isn't 98 degrees with 98% humidity. This causes one to sweat. And one's shirt can get blotchy. And one might not smell so hot in subsequent meetings. For what its worth, I didn't smell. But it was touch and go for a minute there.

Acutally, I think if it were 98/98, you would smell hot. Unfortunately, this kind of 'hot' just isn't in Paris Hilton approved.

Hey at least here in CALIFORNIA it isn't humid! ;) I saw what you said! ahahahahahaha! I take one small break from your blog and you call my state a name. Wacky? Hey, I resemble that remark! (runs away giggling!)

Stay cool and dry!

you should let your fans decide which pictures are decent... you are probably too harsh a critic

What building is this? Who designed it? It is probably something I should recognize? But I don't . Looks sorta like Noah's Ark at low tide. Nice picture! Chill.

it's the native american smithsonian vicki. it's architecture really is cool. i've been there once, but it was too crowded to be very enjoyable. *sigh*

I'm really glad you are in touch with how you smell during the day.

I am too. I just went running. I'll just tell you right now. I smell.

A lesson learned, and a reason to always carry deoderant in the summer! Glad you didn't "stink" in the meetings in any way :-)

Since Tim and I moved, it's been in the upper 80's with 80%+ humidity. I can barely stand it, so I sympathize with you.

Although I think I'm feeling sorrier (is that a word?) for myself,... we moved from central air to open windows and fans. Even the cats have retired to the basement for relief!

And just think, maybe that woman didn't ride in the elevator because she was worried SHE might smell!

You know why they originally made DC the capital? They wanted to pick a gross, unattractive place so only TRULY interested people would come and be a part of the government. On summer days, it's completely not hard to understand the rationale behind the DC choice. Oh, the rapture of central air.

Yeah...yesterday sucked eggs in the DC area.

Pennsylvania isn't any better. It was hot and humid and I got attacked by a dog almost when I was out running. Funny how people look at you like you're the jerk when you get attacked by a neighbor's dog...i thought there were laws for that crap? Oh well, either way I was smelly too...this weather needs to take a break!

That's a Might big mushroom!!

Uuummm yeah. I'm from Washington, you know great Northwest, snow during winter, freezing rain during summer and all that jazz. Then my wonderful husband, I secretly believe, decided he needed PROOF that I love him. So he moved me to Louisiana. As if the idea of the swampiest state in the nation wasn't bad enough he crammed the four of us into 550 SQUARE FEET of apartment and I began attending a college which is ALWAYS under construction, who's central air NEVER works and who's buildings are at least a full block between one another in well over 100 degree heat, with you guessed it, unreal humidity! How do you like them apples??? I'm telling you, it's a darn good thing I really do love him!

what is that of? I've only been to D.C once and that was for the 4th of July two years ago. It was a great experience to be on the lawn near the white house and close to those fallic monuments.

Is that a photo of the new American Indian Museum? I want to go there.

I always forget how miserable the summers are here until it's too late and the oppressive heat is on us.

I'm doing a raindance now on my roofdeck, willing the rain to cool things down. :)
