DC rush hour is nuts, no other way to say it. I left Subway because I didn't want to be towed and because they don't have coffee. After stop and go hell I finally decided to park and sit down somewhere - the Barnes & Noble cafe looking like a good spot. I'm now sipping (not drinking) a cafe mocha (not just "mocha"), grande (not medium) at, where else, Starbucks. I think it was $4.50 for this fancy beverage (g pronounced like mirage) but I'll try to get some work done, finally, to pay for the drink...hopefully when I'm too tired to keep working the roads will be relatively clear.
