voodoo works!

Friday evening I was messing around with my camera, Flickr and booty brought from Arizona to create a small Mayan-SanterĂ­a-Voodoo shrine to ensure the spirits were on our side for a win in today's rugby match:

The sun and moon loteria candles bring me power from the heavens, the clay ruggers bring camraderie to the team, while the rugby ball sees me as I see it - illuminated and as one.

And it worked! We won against our competitive rivals from Aberdeen, Maryland - Renegades 13, North Bay 7. And such a win is especially delicious when someone on the opposing team calls my teammate a 'faggot' during said game, making the victory that much sweeter.

Geek Alert: there's a new comic book store on 14th Street just next to Sparky's cafe. It's called Big Monkey Comics at 1722-B (2nd floor) 14th St., NW.

Here is an interesting crosswalk design nearby Big Monkey Comics intended to designate a clear pedestrian area to enhance the customer flow to businesses around the 14th and S Street areas, NW DC. 14th St. is otherwise a wide impassable street that isn't conducive to a walkable neighborhood area.

We need these all over the city to prevent cars from stopping in the crosswalks at red lights. Maybe this way they will realize to stop behind the crosswalk instead of in it. Of course the red/white/blue U-S-A!! theme has to go...

Cool crosswalk. A bit surprised the fundies haven't cried "SATAN!!" at the stars inside the circles, but maybe they're letting it slide because of the patriotic colors.

Did you get hit it in the head during the game?The sidewalks on 14th are incredibly wide and walkable - more so than 17th. In a few years, people will be walking everywhere down there. It's easy to stroll through. You could even use that segway you never use.

Congrats on the win! Sounds more like The Sssecret is working for you more than your voodoo shrine.
