the sun never shines in DC

Day 482 of overcast weather, or so it seems. I believe we had a sliver of light break through the storm clouds yesterday, but otherwise we are still having our typical soggy DC spring. It promises to get warmer tomorrow, and is slightly warmer today. I could have done without the coat this morning.

But my quality of life has improved in the workplace with my new windowed office. It's all mine, with nobody else's stuff in here. Yesterday Chip helped me move my 4,900-gallon aquarium from home to work, and I'm debating on whether to put marine cetaceans or giant plankton-skimming megalo-sharks into it. Marine mammals poop a lot and tend to jump out of the tank. On the other hand with a basking shark I'll have to establish a zooplankton colony in my aquarium to satisfy the critter's dietary needs. I'm just not sure yet.

I was just thinking of getting a beta fish for my office - I feel so out-fish-classed now.

I'll second the motion for the merman, but failing that, go with a marine mammal. Cute and furry goes over big every day - playing with balls is just a bonus.

We had sunshine today! Here! In Philly!
We rushed to the bathroom, where we have the best afternoon exposure, and basked in the warm yellow pool. It hazed over, but then returned. Now it's mauve and blue with Maxfield Parrish whisps of torn cotton candy clouds glowing peachy pink around the edges. The sun's going down behind the old Inquirer tower, with the yellow streelights switching on below, block by block. Can't wait to spring forward! Ed
