A nice little meet up with Trek BBS posters, shopping with my sister, and a troll attack at the board. Wheeee!
Pics and details under the cut!
mutarada (005)came back to D.C. from California just for us. Not really, but it was nice to see him again. dalaire (Dama47) and Max came, too. He's getting so big! He was still a toddler when I saw him last. He kept us entertained. UWC Defiance and mrcoaster were also there. We had our usual fun of mocking certain posters (and giving them the traditional middle finger salute).
Here are a few pics- 005 gives Max and his balloon a lift while Mom watches.
Me and 005.

After lunch, Dama and Max had to leave, but the rest of us went walking around Clarendon, ending up at fountain, where we chatted.
Katie and Sam were up there, and after I was done with the meet up, we went to Potomac Mills for some shopping. I didn't buy anything (except for some chocolate from the Lindt store), but had fun browsing at Nordstrom Rack. I found a pair of gorgeous Marc Jacobs heels in my size- originally $500, marked down to $100 and 33% off of that. I was tempted, but A: They were very high heels, and B: What the hell would I do with a pair of $500 Marc Jacobs shoes except brag about them? I can't wear very high heels. And even when I dress up, I hardly look like the type to wear designer shoes! No, I'll stick with my Tommy Hilfiger sneakers.
Finally, while I was doing all of that, there was a troll porn attack at Trek BBS. They even hit my forum. How ironic, that my Meet Up forum was attacked while I was at a meet up? Yuck. I hate those attacks. I feel bad for the folks who got stuck cleaning it up! But one good thing- I have an excuse to post this (found in the Motivational Thread at Trek):
Oh, yes. I do. Really. Keep firing, Assholes! You give us moderators plenty of work.
