21 May

Despite missing happy hour last night, I did manage to meet some people out for a couple roof top drinks at City Bistro. A beautiful night to see the city and have a drink to unwind.

All in all it was a tame night and this morning I was awoken by a half neked 3 yr old and her Marine daddy. Not in the flesh but through Skype. I LOVE technology. I wa still wiping sleep from my eyes and talking to them in Okinawa. Presley is without a shirt and giggling about it all while covering herself with her hands. Then she says to me, “Mapp (i spelled that right. She calls me Mapp) dont look at my boobies!” Ha! I almost peed the bed. What a great way to wake up. That should be standard a couple days a week. As I’m crawling out of bed, they were just turning in for the night. AND what is a 3 year old doing up at 10 at night?!

Quick breakfast, some final packing and off to wire some money to get new Marc Jacobs boards into production. Easier said then done. It took an hour and a half to get the transfer to go through and I almost missed out on fish sandwich Friday. Almost I said! I phoned in my order to Steve from the bank and he had a fresh special with tartar, lettuce, tomato and cheese waiting on me. Oh joyous day!

Hit Von Hollands, skate back to the Path and into NYC. The city was just yearning to be skated but I didn’t have enough time. The city just seemed alive with the buzz of people and i had a certain flow while skating. Wish i had the time. Made it to the megabus bus stop and actually was 4th in line. I even got the front seat so I can watch the world roll by.

I put down my sandie with a vengance and laid claim to the first person ever to eat a Von hollands fish sandwich on a megabus! I know it has to be true bc no one else would go through all the trouble I do for this weekly delight.

Still on the bus trip from hell now an an hour late. Thankfully the Orioles v Nationals game doesn’t start until 705p. I’m not letting this get me down at all. This ordeal is almost over. Less than ten miles now to DC, Danny Everett, and a screaming clan of 13 Os fans. Sprinkle in some beers and a corndog and I’m in heaven. Can’t wait to stretch these legs at the new Nats stadium!
