I think this is the worst of DC weather: overcast and steamy. Gah.
But I had a good weekend nonetheless. On Friday evening I went to a free improv workshop at Washington Improv Theater. It was hard work, both physically and intellectually. Most of the two hours was spent playing some really taxing games. Probably the hardest for me were those that combined body and mind work, like when we had to clap and say someone's name at the same time. A lot of fun, and I'd definitely want to do a full course.
On Saturday I learned that playing tennis in 90 degree heat was not a good idea. I know I've had this lesson repeatedly but I never seem to make it stick. My doubles partner and I actually had a free pass since the other team defaulted so we just played around.
On Sunday MoBob and I went to brunch with our dear friends at Montmarte French Restaurant. I've walked by there a million times but that was the first time we've eaten there. The brunch atmosphere was hot and crowded but the food was pretty good, and it was cool to pretend to be somewhere in Provence, as the decor and the staff were very very French.
Despite a serious drenching on Monday evening, watching Star Trek II: the Wrath of Khan outside was well worth it. I met up with a group of friends and was amazed at how many people were able to squeeze into a small patch of grass in Crystal City, all wet and bedraggled.
