I had something like this 2 weeks ago. I was weak & achy all over like I had a virus, but no other symptoms, other than what seemed like a minor sinus headache. It went away after about 2-3 days.

commented on Have You Ever Thrown a Drink in Someone's Face?
On summer break from my uber-liberal college, I went to Boston to visit my boyfriend. We went to a party at his best friend's house, who I had never met before. I had several beers, and the best friend kept making racist comments about various people on TV (so turn off the fucking TV, right?). I'd had enough, and was appalled that my boyfriend was friends with this guy, and impulsively threw my beer in his face. My boyfriend immediately excused us from the party and we went home.

Kudos to the mom for calling it in. That would be a tough realization to come to about your own child - I'm sure a lot of folks would convince themselves it wasn't true until it was too late.

commented on Not Very Rapid
Agreed. I asked the Metro rep handing out pamphlets last week at one of the downtown stops how the D line was going to be faster than a 15E or 18E (I could take either) during peak hours given that the Rapid Ride has more stops. He said it wouldn't necessarily be faster, but with better service (more buses). But every 10 minutes doesn't sound like more to me (I leave work downtown around 5pm), so I guess it's just slower. Bleh.
