bowling with "the axe"

Bowling is my least favorite activity in the world, but after this weekend I've had a change of heart. My roommate organized a bowling party at "Lucky Strike" in D.C.'s Chinatown. In the middle of our game, my friend Allison looks over to the lane next to us and says, I think that's David Axelrod. Sure enough, we look up at his scoreboard and it says, "Axe." In D.C., this is a big time celebrity sighting. We are just that pathetic.

Giggles, exchanged glances, nervous attempts to make contact ensued. Alas, the best we could do was take covert photos of him while pretending to take photos of each other (though my roommate did make some small talk with him, as you will see in the photo below). Blast ... the more I think about it, the more I wish we had said something to him. Ah well. What cracks me up is that at the end of this rather important week for the White House, all he wanted to do on Friday night was go bowling (and with this guy, no less!).

This weekend, roommate and I also went on a date to DC glassworks, a glass blowing studio out in Hyattsville, Maryland. It was a sweet little outing, and so cool to watch people make vases and sculptures out of globs of molten glass heated to more than 2,000 degrees!
