I work with this guy...

Some days at work are very frustrating and almost unbelievable and I felt that this picture I took of a supervisor in my shop's bumper sticker would explain why, better than anything I could write.
Luckily whenever work seems to be getting too much to handle, something comes up that changes my normal schedule and helps me survive another week. This week I got to work at the Pentagon so I didn't have to deal with some people in my shop and it was kind of fun riding the Metro to work and wasting so much time not working. The Pentagon is really beautiful and even though I'm not involved in any of it, I'm sure there is a lot of cool stuff going, it was exciting just in the fact that we could've been struck by terrorists at any moment! Haha. Not really but it was a nice change for a week. Back to Andrews tomorrow.

Whitewater Floating

I got back from my TDY a few weeks ago. We got to take a ferry from Conneticut to Long Island and drove to the Hamptons. We somehow made it possible to stay our last night at the Hilton in Times Square so we walked around a little and got some pizza. I was ready to come home so it was just okay.
The weekend I got home a coworker and I threw my friend, Brooke, a baby shower. It was definitely not your traditional, sweet celebration of the new life about to enter the world. It was a little more anatomical and real. Unfortunately the pictures are too mature for all audiences so just imagine a cake in the shape of 'what got her there in the first place'. Since I'd already done the dirty diaper game at my friend, Stefanie's, baby shower that was a no brainer and then a bottle chugging musical chairs where the 'mom' had to feed the 'baby'.
The next weekend some friends and me and Corey went 'whitewater' tubing on the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers out in West Virginia. I was so excited since I grew up floating the Umpqua river and it has a few pretty intense rapids along the 4 hour float. I was expecting the same I guess but was hardly impressed by the mighty whitewater the Potomac had to offer. It was funny 'cause I was really a little nervous since I always think I won't be able to hack it, so at least I was disappointed instead of the only person who couldn't hack the rapids. The Shenandoah was a nice slow float so we could relax and not get river rocks rammed into our butt cheeks like the Potomac.
