in a holiday inn suite with two surprisingly comfy queen size beds, twins fell asleep to their mantra of being homesick. we did washington yesterday afternoon, it was supposed to be a whirlwind visit but thanks to mapquest who got the geography of washington, nw, sw, se, ne, etc totally screwed up I’m pretty sure we saw ALL of das capitol. road signs to manassas and dumfries which Iona quickly turned to dumassas and manfries helped me stay alert. food on the road is a huge problem. bigger than universal healthcare. in fact if food on the road were only slightly better we may not need universal healthcare. i will send an open letter about this to obama, who we did not meet on our visit, which was a good thing since michelle was bound to spot the large grease stain on my new donna karan skirt (which she would admire) caused by the breakfast sandwich i purchased, and chucked out the window. savannah tonight with the possibility of a green salad.
