this week i

joined the chaos. no oath of office complete without

live jazz

live salsa

live civil war - union army

and a concert of the century, garth brooks my favorite act. the jumbotron cameras enjoyed a feast of mittens.

played a few rounds of chess, i'd been meaning to use this set.

wondered why our nation has an obesity epidemic, sarcastically.

honed my sarcasm. felt much safer.

mourned the loss of the onion's bush coverage.

stumbled upon the magna carta.

in other news...

employee handwashing just doesn't compare to warning signs of yesteryear.

overflow crowds blurred restroom lines' gender lines.

the secret service couldn't explain this one.

her parents met at hopkins, another debt the world owes baltimore.

oh yeah and america is #1.
