goodbye minneapolis

i'm all packed and ready to leave my parents house in minneapolis for washington DC. i leave at the crack of dawn in a six hours. a few moments ago my car thermometer said that it was -3 degrees out. the only instances where these types of weather conditions are permissible are when you're within the range of a mountain range (say that ten times fast). i thoroughly enjoyed my two weeks here in the 612 (highlights include: a black tie formal, a birthday celebration at 112 eatery, a blake alumni pond hockey party, checking out the james j. hill mansion in st. paul, witnessing my meat-headhockey player friend smash his head open in a bar, the big wu show on new year's, long runs around lake calhoun, a delicious paella dinner party), but the holidays are also terribly exhausting and i am ready to get back into my (seemingly changing) routine. i'll be in DC for three weeks.
