Fire in the sky

Anyone else see that shooting star flash across the sky arounf 6:08pm this evening? Pretty damned cool – it was visible for about a full three seconds and looked like it had calved – I saw two distinct bright dots next to each other.

Just to show that I haven’t entirely left behind the remnants of reaching adulthood during the cold war: As it disappeared off to the southeast I thought “Hope that really WAS a shooting star… wonder if I should close my eyes and look away so I’m not blinded by the flash.”

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
