Phickle Thoughts

Obama has started to woo us centrists with his promise to continue/expand Bush's faith-based programs. It's a good start. (At first, I accidentally typed "it's a god start". I suppose that is also accurate). I'm just not sure if I believe him or not.
I've started biking to work a couple times a week. Basically whenever I don't need to be presentable for clients and/or court. Washing up in the bathroom is a bit awkward, but the exercise is worth it.

I also like that it cuts down on my metro time. The metro system is terrific, but sometimes it gets to be a bit obnoxious. A nice quiet bike ride gives me a chance to be alone with my thoughts in a way that metro doesn't. True, on the bike ride my thoughts are pretty much restricted to "Another hill? I'm... not... going... to... make... it."
One of the younger attorneys at Legal Aid left our organization this week for a job with the DOJ. She was hired a couple months after I was, and now is leaving before I am. It's kind of weird to think that in a couple months I'll have been at this job for two full years. And though we're working on building an escape plan, getting away from D.C. is proving kind of difficult.
With my last post I made it up to 11 in the last month, more than I've posted since April of 2007 (also 11). I've been trying real hard to post more often, and it seems to be working out.
Speaking of posting a lot, I'm off to vacation for the next week plus, so there won't be any posts. See you the week of the 14th!

You said I must eat so many lemons
'cause I am so bitter.

I'll be gone the next week plus on vacation.

Hope you're having a fabulous vacation! I thought about biking, but two problems: (1) I don't own a bike, (2) I don't have to transfer metro stations, so the metro is uber-convenient, (3) I'm super scared a car would hit me. Okay, so that's three problems.
