CLE to DC, roadtrip edition.

Monday, March 22, 2010

this past weekend i traveled to washington DC - road tripped to be exact.

to me going on a road trip with someone can tell you a lot about that person.

like if they sleep during the drive or not, if they are a backseat driver, if they are a radio nazi or if they have to pee every hour on the hour, etc.

on the drive from CLE to DC and back with my friends AJP and lara i learned that AJP likes to sing like me, lara isn't allowed to be in charge of getting directions ever again and the only person that has to pee every hour is me.

as for radio nazi there was only one band that AJP and lara wouldn't listen to - the dave matthews band. which sucked because i love him so, but was funny as i threatened them with playing DMB repeatedly - i did trick them into listening to phish and grateful dead. sneaky hippie.

AJP and lara went to DC to run the national half marathon with our friend kerns while i went to visit with my loves lexa and maxie.

the aim was to have it be a "low key" weekend... yup.

with dinner and drinks for all at comet ping pong friday night, it started off kinda low key.

but when lexa and i spent saturday afternoon drinking at alero it became a little less low key. especially when i ordered a pitcher of sangria, and the server began to walk away. we had to stop him because lexa needed to place her order of a pitcher of margaritas still.

the pitcher was just for me...obviously.

four hours of patio drinking later we headed out for the evening meeting up with the rest of the girls and some of their new friends and my old friend patrick. we were out in the adams morgan area and hit up multiple bars all of which i'm too lazy to list here.

the area was fun and the dance party of one i was having was only made better with it became a dance party of two once maxie arrived.

the drive home was beyond easy especially because we took the turnpike instead of the dreaded route 30 - never again.

and now it's monday, i'm back at work, playing catch up like whoa, and counting down the minutes till i hop on a flight to NYC this weekend.

can't. wait.

editors note: yes, i know there aren't any pictures, epic fail on my part ok? guilty as charged.


  1. Unless you're sick and cannot move, I can't imagine anything you do as being low key. Not a chance.

    No pics? Epic fail is right. Boo.

  2. Saturday was perfect for afternoon patio drinking. Glad you took advantage!

  3. your such a world traveler! pics give us a reason to come back..

  4. Gotta love road trips if it means you're gonna have that much fun in your destination :) pitchers of sangria sound so tempting!

  5. I would just like to say that for the record, I am 99.9% of the time a sleeper in the car. The singing was merely a distraction from the pure terror that I felt as you were whipping around corners and twitpic-ing. Sleeping was not an option.

    Love ya!

  6. i do believe my post will be a "how to" road trip with you...i might have one pic for proof.

  7. I can't believe you don't have pics!

  8. Ugh I need to party with you. I have no idea if I'll survive though.

  9. Haha, I am low key. You are not. And I love that about you. I'm glad that you had a fun roadtrip, I always prefer them to flying. Next a trip to NYC? I need a nap just reading about all your travels.

  10. Gah. It's like I'm not even a DC blogger. I need to start existing again.

    Glad you had fun in my new fair city. :)

  11. Yep, you're fired for not taking pictures. Hello!?


Comments are cool. This is a fact.
