Today is all about new, cool things.
Drove to a different part of Virginny today. I was driving down the George Washington Parkway at 9:00, with the sun roof open and the heat on my feet [yep.] when a plane flew overhead. As I looked up through the sun roof [like I said, 9am on the GW Parkway...I wasn't really moving] the plane passed, and there was a HUGE rainbow bridging the sky between Washington DC and Arlington. It was visible for quite a while [read: until traffic started moving], and was just awesome. An auspicious start to the day!
Have been sitting in the control room at a local radio station, listening to two cool guys talk about music from the 2006-2007 Discovery Series, threading together pieces for our radio series. It's a cool place, and watching the process is really interesting; I'm mostly listening, doing a tiny bit of last-minute research, and - most importantly - getting lunch. [mmmm....Thai food...] They're knowledgable and personable, and a whole lot of fun. And they're all good sports, especially after I folded them all into my roller skate of a car this morning at the metro station.
It's been a great day so far - can't wait to see what else is in store!
