((You guys don’t know steampunk until you head on over to this awesome little slice of heaven over here in Baltimore. This is a repurposed power plant that was built in 1900 that was converted into a Barnes and Nobel. It boasts a good selection of books, has the obligatory Starbucks inside with an awesome view of the city, but also has a really neat and informative aquarium that features wildlife you’d find in the bay! This is one awesome looking place to read. If you guys ever visit me up here in Maryland, we’d totally visit this Barnes and Noble.))

*barfs from over-excitement*

This is where I’ll go when I die.

I’ve been there!!! Business trip ages ago (10 years? 12 years? more? not sure) was in Baltimore. My hotel was within walking distance of this. :) The damn convention was in the boondocks an hour drive away but I spent a bit of time there at Pier 4 and the bookstore… I wonder if I still have my old photos from Baltimore ….

*For best results, read using your best David Attenborough impression. If you don’t have a serviceable David Attenborough impression, Morgan Freeman works as well. If you can’t do Morgan Freeman either, just use Samuel L. Jackson. Everybody has a Samuel L. Jackson impression.

I’d heard rumors…

Morgan Freeman impression now being attempted…. And I actually don’t have a Samuel L. Jackson impression…

The view directly overhead… I get a drip on my head not into the buckets behind me once every minute… From the circuit box labeled: panel #4 Cir#13 120V…

No problem…. ;-p

Friday nonsense….

Living under the constant expectation that something warm and wet is going to suddenly drop into your lap is supposed to be exhilarating not frightening….

It’s official…. I am the #2 Chicken Little of the company…

But the list is so long for the site that you’d never find my name….

Until DC passes a budget, every one on that list, we’re all SOL…. There is no budget for rain damage…. suffering from only 2.6” of water makes DC look at us like we’re insane for even having a problem. :) 

Our Safety person came to inspect and brought extra buckets. :) I just hope I don’t slip and kick the bucket… there are so many all around….
