Skunkgal - Too Much Skunk In Your Junk

coming this weekend: clusterf#$%

all the dc blogs are talking about it, so i might as well tell my friends living around the country: this could possibly be the worst weekend to be a dc resident.

what do flowering trees, runners, kites, and baseball have in common?

the four are relentlessly converging upon dc saturday and sunday, ensuring a traffic nightmare and overall discomfort for residents all over the district.

cherry blossom festival: starts saturday
national marathon: saturday, 7am
smithsonian kite festival: saturday, 10am-4pm
nationals games in brand new stadium: exhibition game, saturday, 6pm; home opener, sunday, 8:05pm

it’s going to mean a lot of suburban yuppies coming into the city and clogging up the streets. it means road closures. it means chaos. it means two of my flag football games on saturday were cancelled. luckily, it also means tourists coming from far and wide, paying our sales tax and funding district public works, so i guess i shouldn’t complain too much.

anyway, i’ll probably go to the kite festival and see if any of the cherry blossoms have bloomed yet. maybe show off my photography skills (or lack thereof) on this blog later. probably not though. stay tuned.
