We then waited 45 minutes for our order to come out of the warehouse. Jen got it all straight in the end, but not without considerable aggrivation.

We made it down to DC to to see A Midsummer's Night Dream. Once again, DC's theatre troop rose to the occasion. They had great physical comedy. In fact, the comedy parts were in the zone. They had funny lines, pratt falls, slapstick, silly sounds, and running about. The whole thing had a 30's feel to it. Unfortunately, just as dawn was breaking in the play, the power went out. Blackout for blocks.
