Written on Friday night (Saturday morning?) somewhere in Fairfax County

What a day!

I landed bright and early at Dulles, which I think was the first time I ever flew into that airport. I heard that shortly after my flight landed, many flights were canceled due to inclement weather (sleet, icy conditions). In fact, while in the shuttle to my friend’s home, we were listening to the school closure announcements on the radio.

I’m staying with my good friend Jan, who I haven’t seen in literally 5 years… the last time I was in DC (around the time I started blogging, I think). I couldn’t believe how great it was to be in the same room, instead of exchanging an email, card, or phone call with her.

My flight landed before 6am Eastern time, which would have been 3am my time, but I was wide awake by the time I got to Jan’s place, which was sometime after 7. I wanted to nap since I only slept about an hour on the plane the night before.

I did end up laying down for a few hours and woke up and took a much needed shower around noon.

I spent the entire day with Jan, who was busy working and taking a zillion calls (somethings never change) and also doing a few things on the computer. We spent the afternoon working on a side project together and by the time dinner time rolled around, we were starving. (All I’d had to eat all day was an orange!)

During the day I spoke to two of my friends. I was supposed to get together with one this afternoon in the city, but I decided not to go in since the weather was so terrible today. The other one (I haven’t seen her in 10+ years) is in Falls Church and we were trying to do dinner or drinks, but I was so distracted with Jan today, the day got away from me. Now I’m afraid I won’t see either of them on this trip and I say “phooey” to my suckage.

Anyway, for dinner, we ended up at Anthony’s Restaurant in Falls Church. It wasn’t fancy, but the portions were large, the restaurant was warm and we were able to have a long conversation and catch up on all we had missed in each other’s lives in the last 5 years.

We came home, took her little dog on a walk around the neighborhood (COLD!) and we talked some more until Jan couldn’t keep her eyes open anyway.

Needless to say, we’re still catching up.

I’m getting tired, but I decided to play with my iPhone for a bit and to take a few pictures for Yoshi. Here’s one I thought was funny…

Joz is shocked by something on the iphone

This one was for The Other Yoshi, just to make him laugh. I call it “No paparazzi, please…” but I also sent it to Yoshi, who also liked it. Hee! There’s nothing like getting complimented on photos you take of yourself with a crappy phone cam right before you are going to go to bed.

No paparazzi, please...

Yes, I am wearing my cloudy PJs already. I’m ready for bed soon.
