Thursdays, am I right?… because one just isn’t enough…

Once leaving the lucky lucky lady in the dust, because I got tired of her shit and just walked away hoping the rest of them would catch the hint and vacate the area post haste, we did the touristy thing and took a lot of pictures at the monuments. I would share these pictures but they have yet to be shared with me… im looking at you Urikah! First stop, Washington Monument. “stand there and look awkward,” they say. Stand there and look awkward I did. Made more awkward by the fact that the pictures now just look like im awkwardly standing in front of a random wall and not even a monument. There was a picture of people taking a picture of people taking a picture of people taking a picture of people taking a picture of me standing awkwardly in front of a seemingly random wall. Again, I’d share, buuuuut…

There were quite a few attempts of photobombing random peoples photos that went horribly wrong. I’m starting to think they knew what we were about because once we started making our attempts and they started taking pictures of the sky. I don’t know what it is about you dirty little hipsters these days but everyone was taking jumping pictures. You know, where everyone jumps on three and then you’ve all turned into hover crafts in front of the monument erected to memorialize the great man that was the first to lead our country into freedom. Because i’m sure he’d be proud, so keep doing you boo, just do you…

Fast forward through other monuments and photo ops and we make it all the way down to the good ol’  ‘Quiet, Respect Please’ memorial…


There was some guy sitting in a chair like he was important or some shit, totally was stealing the thunder of the true hero. But its alright, we know who to show our admiration to. There were some pretty fantastic pillars there as well and still everyone was taking pictures of the guy with the beard.

I’m just kidding Abe, we were pumped to see you to.


Im pretty sure the object of the game that weekend was to see who could out ridiculous face the other between me and Stevini. I think I won this round…

Along the way we found places that I had no idea had existed. Like this beautiful view of the George over a shallow lake full of goose poo. Really its the memorial dedicated to the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, but we thought it made a nice place to do a little taichi and stretches. This was posted on the book of the face and Momsie Salamsies response was, “please don’t tell anyone you are from this country!” I totally would have went on a rampage of accents and lies if anyone had asked us about it. Mind you, i’m not very good at keeping a consistent accent, but what I lack in skill I more than make up for in effort. It’s like going on an adventure, you never know what countries you’ll end up in, and to me, that’s more fun anyway.


After a bit we made our way to the museums, we only had time for one so we chose the Natural History Museum. I’m not sure who let us as a group in a museum, but im proud to say that we didn’t break anything. …even if a few curse words were said far too loudly at one point or another in a museum full of children. And yes, they were mainly by me, but we all know at this point that I have no control over this. But this is a pretty accurate picture of my friends…

It’s remarkable how shiny Tobias is, but look at that face full of childhood wonder and contentment…

The spy museum seemed like a super awesome idea…until we got there and quickly turned around and walked out of there. Ain’t nobody got forty dollars to spend on that… So in lieu of sweet spytastic experiences we just walked across the street and opted for tasty brewery food instead. Which was still pretty expensive, but at least I got food and beer out of it. Everybody looked at me weird when I asked the hostess for one of the little kid coloring sheet book guys, but guess who wanted to play tic tac toe…everyone!

While we were there and being antisocial with each other, as you do, and playing on our phones instead of having actual conversation. During my spelunking of facebook I found this…


And that’s how we kept ourselves occupied for the rest of the weekend. Walking down the street? Shatner. Walking to the bathroom? Shatner. Paying your dinner bill? You bet your ass you better Shatner the shit out of it. I believe that everyone should join in on this game so it takes the world by storm, because that shit is entertaining. Sometimes a little sad because of the lack of creativity, but still usually entertaining none the less. Especially when you break it out on the unsuspecting public and make shit weird real quick.

‘Thursdays, am i right?’ I can’t remember at what point that originated, but Stevini first uttered it on Thursday, logically, and the rest of us couldn’t wait for Thursday to be over so he’d stop saying that. Turns out it doesn’t have to be Thursday. Turns out Stevini is going to say it on Friday, Saturday, AND Sunday. And now its one for the ABC inside jokes book. …which now that I think about it, we need to create.

… and this isn’t even the end of Thursday! There’s still a drawn out game of Cards Against Humanity and Movie Magic that has yet to take place! And maybe, if you dirty little hipsters are lucky, I’ll actually get the next one written up before another entire week goes by and my poor concussed brain can’t remember anything anymore.
