This past weekend I went down to the Washington DC area to visit Tim & Beth. It was really fun! I got to see their new place, go into DC for one day, watch the entire Spaced series, and eat some good food.
On Saturday, we took the Metro into DC and went to the Air & Space museum. I hadn't been since I was a little kid, and it was neat to see all of the space stuff. It really looks like all it takes to get into space is tin foil and duct tape.
After the museum we went over to the capitol building to walk up the stairs and go inside and do that whole thing. We were really disappointed, because we could only get this far. Apparently, they have closed the capitol building to they can build the stage for the 2009 inauguration. Do they really have to build a whole new stage for that? They are just going to take it down right after! Talk about an instance when they should use a scalpel or a hatchet, a money hatchet!!
