the only downfall was that you couldn't bring the popcorn in the theater.
the movie was well worth the 8 dollars and I definitely would have spent the money on a full price movie ticket.
but go support the film industry and watch this film and if you can answer the "what is this movie about" question please let me know.

The Hishhorn Museum was on of the few museums locatacted on the National Mall that I haven't been to. It isn't that I was putting it off or didn't want to go, but there is just a bunch of other modern/contemporary art museums in DC.
after being inside for ten mins taking pictures a security guard told me that I couldn't take pic... i'm sure it was just for the specific exhibit but since i didn't notice anyone else with a camera I stopped.
and it was a shame the cool stuff was downstairs and I started at the top.
the building itself is circular in shape.
fun fact: the National Gallery of Art Ice skating rank circular shape is based off the design of this building.
the museum has 3 floors and at this moment a lot of the exhibit space were being changed out.

But when my friend Rachel sent me a text asking if I wanted to do Happy Hour my immediate response was: “yes! But only if it completes something off m list”
I'm sorry Mr. Franklin I decided that getting happy hour drinks was a better idea then learning about you.
In typical fashion and slightly like the brunch I had with her we gossiped and got caught up.

Last year I saw It’s a Wonderful Life there and anyone who knows me knows that it is my favorite movie. (and it was about 10X better on the big screen!)

During the past year I mentioned to anyone who asked that this poetry slam was the perk of my 2011 28 day challenge. When I made the decision to do another 28 day 28 thing challenge I had to add another poetry slam to this years line up. It also appeared that timing was on my side and the same exact event was going on this year during the month of February. It was a perfect win/win situation.
The event was being held in the Soutwest and since I was venturing to the area I decided I had to stop by Good Stuff Eatery first.
I started off my evening with a delicious burger and fries that came out to about $11. I was won over by the burger that included bacon and two patties…. I decision that was great when I was ordering, but eating the whole thing was a slight challenge. And how can you say no to a place that has multiple mayo options?
from the online advertisement:
Join the Beltway Poetry Slam for this qualifying competition to see who will represent DC at the Women of the World Poetry Slam this March in Denver
4 rounds: 1, 2, 3, and 4-minute rounds.
And before each round they had someone not competing go up and perform a poem to give the judges (aka me) a feel for the new time limit.
I gave out my 7.9, 8, 8.2, 8.5, etc.... and I was still constantly being boo-ed. if this was a sporting event they would be happy with these scores, but here they seemed upset that I was giving out constant 9.5's.
And I came to the conclusion: poets are narcissist.
even with the boo's I did have a great time and I'm always impressed by anyones ability to stand in front of a crowd of complete strangers and pour their heart out.
it is something I know I could never do.
I'll go again...

As a person who is technically a member of the 99% I could really care less about this and personally don't think camping out by Kst is really the best action to take. But I'm not the best educated on this issue, so don't listen to me.

I'm a little upset that I'm 2 days behind on updating these, but I promise I am doing something everyday.
