Weekend Wrap-up

Following a leisurely night of burgers at The Counter and trolling for Christmas lights in Herndon, Saturday morning was actually quite productive. We did our final raking of the year and then put up our assorted Christmas decorations.

In the afternoon, we headed to DC, by way of my inaugural ride on the Silver Line. We met up with Marc and toured the annual Christmas tree exhibit on the South Lawn. Th exhibit was much worse this year, thanks to Google, who applied their historical prowess at messing up things that people had already gotten comfortable with.

Instead of quirkily decorated trees from each of the 50 states, the trees were covered in nets of LED lights, supposedly coded into different flashing patterns by millions of girls from all over the country. Since half of the trees had the exact same pattern, one can only assume that most of those coding efforts didn't compile correctly (or alternately, that the girls collectively tried but failed to emblazon the trees with flashing penis shapes for giggles' sake).

In the evening, we went to the second annual Sausageween party at Annie's, a pastiche of all of the different fourth quarter holidays rolled into one with extra sausage. We took the Silver Line home, safely falling asleep since our stop was the last stop, and then fell into bed at 2:22 AM.

Nothing happened on Sunday.

How was your weekend?
