I went to a rain-delayed night game with some friends. I screamed my head off for the Washington Nationals even though their opponents were my favorite childhood team the Pittsburgh Pirates. "Bay you Yunz'er! Go back to Pittsburgh!"
I went to a great baseball game yesterday. It's hard to believe how only months ago Washington wasn't sure if it would have a team or not. Now the Washington Nationals are one of the best teams in baseball. I imagine last years' Montreal Expos are excited to be out of Canada.
In the winter when I day dream of short-sleeved shirts and mini skirts. I forget forget about humidity. And I remember not to wear my mini skirt in public.
Rolling with Craig Walker
I saw my friend Craig today moving to another apartment. I looked around for a moving truck but there wasn't one. He was moving to an apartment only a block away. I grabbed a laundry hamper full of blankets and followed him down the block.

Because I am a member of Vets for Peace I receive the heads up (via email) on countless opportunities to practice the constitutional right of protest. In the immortal words of a true American Hero and U.S. Marine Brig. Gen Smedley Butler, "War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious."
Yesterday I saw the storm rise over the buildings as I started my walk home. It was a race against Mother Nature. I made it home and closed my last window as the rain started to pour. June 6th also marks the first day this year I've used air conditioning.
