    Ya know, I grew up here, and don't ever go see the sights.

    My girl is in town for her spring break. We pulled an all-nighter last night clubbing around Georgetown (there on M St.), and slept in until 12:30 this afternoon. Felt good to act like I was young again, but I know I'll be paying for it for the next week. Anyway, we went back in to DC today, this time using the Metro, to play the role of 'tourist' around the Mall. It was nice. Check out the pics, comment as you will.


    (Ya'll like my hat?) Last night, out with my best friend and his girl:

    Here we are at the new WWII Memorial:

    This one didn't come out as well as I'd hope, but I hope you can read the message:

    DC was cool. Went in 8th grade for a school trip.

    It was a place on my "Places to see before I die" list.

    EDIT- GF helped me with this one.

    If we do today or tomorrow, you'll get a PM.

    hahaha..... Yea, I'm kinda big. I'm hoping to swell up a bit more with a new workout program I'm starting next week (should have been this week, but I'm lazy). Thanks, though.
