Still parking at Zombie Safeway?

Sorry for the lag in posting lately.  I've had another stretch of 12-14 hour days at my job, which leaves me with very little energy left to post.  But, with two deadlines out of the way this week, things are looking up for my schedule!

So, word on the street is that within the next day or two, the Zombie Safeway parking lot will be chained off and any cars parked there will be towed.  If you've been using that lot to park in, I recommend finding an alternate parking location.

Also, in case you haven't noticed, there have been a few Wheaton metro station mentions in the news lately.  The first comes from the announcement that WMATA is considering selling naming rights to its stations to raise income.  According to a blurb on WAMU, one of the funny naming opportunities people came up was 'Cream of Wheaton' station.  I like it!  Also, an amusing Washington Post article suggests that the strange whale-like groans and moans that metro's escalators make could actually be a modern jazz soundtrack to our daily commutes.  At the end of the article, the writer advises the true 'elevator jazz' connoiseur to check Wheaton's escalators, which give you a ride of '2 minutes and 44 seconds'.  The article also has a link to a contest they're holding for people to remix audio tracks of escalator noise into audio tracks.  I'm looking forward to checking them out.  It certainly gives me something to think about as I make my daily commute.
