Numbers - DC Edition

Since I last saw you, I:
  1. Took two train rides, one to and one from DC. the one to DC left super early on Saturday morning but was so nice and relaxing.
  2. Saw at least three monuments, including: Lincoln Memorial, World War II and the Vietnam Memorial.
  3. Was asked by one police officer to get off the grass near the Vietnam Memorial; witnessed my friend asked by one police officer to get off the steps of the Department of Justice.
  4. Went to brunch on Sunday where 32 mimosas were consumed. Bottomless, baby! Flavors: blueberry, peach ginger, blood orange, mango, pear.
  5. Took no less than six cab rides. Six? One from Union Station to our hotel, one to Penn on Saturday morning, one home from Penn on Sunday night, one to Union Station from Georgetown, one out and about DC...maybe just five.
  6. Received one free bottle of champagne for our stay at the Beacon Hotel.
  7. Cried one time on the trip, while reading the Emancipation Proclamation. Go on, Abe Lincoln!
  8. Saw four stories worth of my peeps at the National Museum of the American Indian. That museum was pretty awesome, you guys, and not just because it's about my people. I'll tell you more about that later in the week.
  9. Spent a lot of time on numbered streets: 15th & Pennsylvania, 20th and M St to name a few.
  10. Partook in three dozen buffalo wings, at .25 each.
  11. Partook in an $8.00 pitcher. ($8.00 pitchers during Red Sox games - too bad the Sox lost. Not really, I'm glad they did.)
  12. Hung out with at least five amazing people all weekend long. Sometimes a couple more, sometimes a couple less.
