We are trying to get Ophelia used to a combing routine. This morning I combed her. It was semi successful as she let me comb the top of her. She had lost interest when I tried to brush her stomach.

Not at eventful commute today. I wore another new outfit: black capri pants and a white and black patterned, peasant style top. The weather is cloudy and overcast. Even Jaunty was somewhat muted as she was wearing a tan cotton jacket with a tan and gray skirt. Hah–I finally out-jaunted Jaunty! I haven’t seen Miss Piggy, Tubby or Well Groomed, they must be on vacation. I sat in the back of the bus and snoozed. At the Archives/Navy Memorial Metro stop there was a bus load of young sailors in uniform and those cute little hats. Had I been 20 years younger and not married, I might have gotten off there and said, “Hey sailor, new in town?”

At Metro Center I bought a copy of the Post and read about Monica Not-So-Goodling and the Department of Injustice’s latest scandals.

Tourists ARGHH ___ the bane of my existence.  They clog Metro entrance ways, kiosks and escalators.  When they use their metro cards they stand and scratch their heads.  Its simple–you put the card in here, it comes out here and you pull it out and go. Sheesh.  OK, I admit I got confused in the beginning too but darn it I forget that when I’m running to catch my bus.  They also don’t know the escalator rules, left side walks up.  They clog the whole escalator and I can’t walk up. GRRRR.

There was some huge motorcade along with police escort at metro center today.  Maybe Jenna ran out of  beer and cigarettes!

On my drive home I was behind some A-hole in a gas guzzling SUV with a flag magnet and FOUR-Count ’em-FOUR “support the troops” magnets.  What a super duper mega patriot!  I got to chuckle though thinking the guy probably pays $100.00 bucks to fill up his magnet holder’s gas tank.
