Napping in D.C.

Babycakes and I spent the weekend napping in Washington, D.C., that is, when we weren't eating.

Okay, it's my fault. I had one (maybe two) martinis too many Thursday night. An error in judgement. I had not packed for our 7:40 a.m. flight Friday.

After attempting to clear the toxins from my system (yeah, you're imagining the right form of purge) I decided to take a dramamine tablet at the airport moments before we boarded the plane.

When we arrived in D.C. I decided to nap some more ... then we went out to forage for food in the lovely Dupont Circle neighborhood where we were staying. A couple of gourmet pizzas later, we were back in the hotel sleeping some more.

Saturday was spent at the Museum of the American Indian which has the best food court of all the Smithsonians. All the food was traditional native foods ... corn (we call it maize), beans, bison, salmon, turkey ... and oh yeah, the exhibits were good too.

After the museum we came back to hotel to nap. Then we went to the Adams Morgan neighborhood in search of Ethiopian food ... and pie.

Today we slept late, ate breakfast, shopped and had lunch at City Lights, a terrific chinese restaurant in Dupont Circle.

I had to move hotels (to be where my meeting is being held) and sent Babycakes off to the airport this afternoon.

Then I took a nap.

Thank god I didn't have a 7:40 flight to board on Friday morning.

Speaking of which, dott, I don't think it's fair that you get to hang out all night with the fun, tipsy eek, then send her home the moment she starts turning into the drooling, slurring-her-words eek. Next time, I'll have drinks with her, and you can dry her out!
