weather

It's supposed to be 96 degrees tomorrow. NINETY-SIX DEGREES, people. You know what that is? Too damn hot. We should get hot days. Like sick, but for hot, as in "screw this, I'm not leaving my sweet air-conditioned apartment today."

In better news, tomorrow is the first day of the Smithsonian's Folklife Festival. This is pretty much the awesomest thing that happens in D.C. all year, and this year sounds particularly awesome - they're featuring Northern Ireland, the Mekong River, and...ok, Virginia, which is somewhat less exotic. I'm psyched for Irish set dancing and Southeast Asian food!!

i've yet to go to the festival . . . i wanted to last year, but i just couldn't get there. (that, and i didn't know my way around very well, so i didn't quite figure out that you CANT' drive there and park easily.)

any specific events i should keep my eyes peeled for?

Heh. Yeah, it's definitely an event to go to on metro. Important tip: the museums are all air-conditioned with lovely water fountains and bathrooms. (And they're happy to have you, even if you're just using them for the AC.) For events, just get there when it opens (at 11) and rove around reading the boards - I plan to hit all the Irish set dancing.

No doubt. Today is the first day all week that it's not 90+ degrees with 90%+ humidity here.

Ahhh.....

Yeah, we're supposed to get that less-crappy weather in time for the weekend, so I look forward to strolling around the festival when it's 80ish degrees!
