Today was another day of meetings at the National Cryptologic Museum, so there’s not much to write about. However, I do have a few things:
- Yesterday, I bought a nice ceramic tea mug with the NSA logo. Used it all day with my immersion heater. This morning, while pouring boiling water into it from a hot pot — “crack”. Never had a mug crack like that before. The cheerful lady at the gift shop replaced it for free. Later in the day, I stopped in and picked up a book on Hobo-encoded Quilt Squares for my wife. Talked to the gift shop lady more–she had never had a mug crack like that either.
- Last night for dinner we hit a fancy Indian restaurant in Anne Arundel. Not that impressed. This evening I consulted Yelp. Found a wonderful local BBQ place in Laurel. Had yummy pit beef and collard greens… from the new owners, who are from Los Angeles!
- Tomorrow morning, I have a 925am flight out of IAD. This means leaving Annapolis Jct around 530am to return the rental car. Let’s hope the return flight to LA is better than the flight out to IAD.
Given how early I need to get up, I better go to bed so we don’t have a zombie on the Outer
