Firstly, welcome to the new home of Limbo. I’m really enjoying learning a new platform and can’t wait to really dig into things here at WordPress. I’m sorry to say though, that it feels like I’ve missed a lot while I’ve been making the transition and deciding on my final space. It certainly feels like a lot has happened since the midnight showing of Star Trek (which, YES, was as good as I thought it would be).
Mother’s Day went well (happy belated Mother’s Day to those of you out there!) with my mom visiting from South Carolina (something different, as normally I visit there). We actually got to do some things that I haven’t done in ages – sitting and soaking up the sun in Dupont Circle (which I’m still paying for via sunburn), brunch at J Paul’s in Georgetown (normally GWichAsh and I keep our brunches to smaller, out of the way places just to try something fun), and I even gave her a walking tour of the Hill (down from Union Station past the SCOTUS building, and back through to Cap South). It felt wonderful to just spend a weekend getting to know the city again, one of my major goals for this summer.
This week has been more of the same, with play practice beginning down at CHAW this past Monday evening and then last night spent getting to know the Women Who Tech at their annual happy hour at Science Club. To compare the two, I felt much more at ease with a beer in a room full of strangers than I did standing beside my best friend and being told to sing among professionals. This production is going to be absolutely amazing, they are just so talented, and I felt like a fish out of water all evening! Here’s hoping the stage fright eases.
I feel like this summer is going to be a good one in Limbo, with things to keep me busy and hopefully not too much time to contemplate the larger issues of living one’s entire life in Purgatory.
