And another great experience ... got stuff done ('makin' moves' as someone would say!!), feeling pretty good about everything!


A Mr. Bob Dobalina. It isn't that he has two first names, Alaina. It is that they are THE SAME NAME. He was on my flight home today and I was the only one who recognized him!! Had I been able to recall anything that I thought she'd have said, I WOULD HAVE SAID IT. After all, I am a concerned citizen, aren't I?

Right now, I am too tired. Took the 125 SMART bus from Metro back downtown. And in another piece of bad allocation of either, funds, responsiblity or both, caught the #38 DOT back home...

The reason that something was wrong, is that we have a new transit center, or so the Germans would have you believe. A NUMBER of city buses can't use the new transit building because it doesn't have the freakin' capacity.

Why?!? Why aren't there enough spots for all the buses to use the new building, so that all the riders are shielded from the elements? Why can't all of the users of the bus, get a chance to sit down and be comfortable?

And why would my case worker call me TODAY for something that I called her on LAST WEEK. And since I called within MINUTES of her call, why didn't she pick up?

*sigh* I am back at my Pop's, and wore down. Took longer to get from the airport to the house than it did to get from airport to airport.


Conversation with my last bus driver ... lived in both the D.C. Metroplex and in flyover country. Anywho, I am going to crash and perhaps get back out here later.

Peace, love and hairgrease!!

I'll pass on the hairgrease, Mark, but like the others in line, I'm looking forward to reports.
