At this early hour, we’re up, and you know what that means…

It is 3:30 AM on Saturday, March 17, 2007 as I am writing this. And you know what that means, right? Yes, that’s right – I’m going to Washington DC, and it must be something important if I’m going on a weekend and getting up so bloody early that the road’s not even awake yet.

As you probably guessed, and as I hinted to in my previous Journal entry about the Malkinites, I’m going to the M17 demonstration today. Yep! Despite the snow that hit the area yesterday, I’m still going. Nature’s going to have to do better than that to keep me away.

And I’m ready, too. The protest pack is already in the car, and Big Mavica’s batteries are fully charged, plus I topped them off last night. All I have to do is get my two big bottles of water, and I’ll do that on my Mt. Jackson stop.

One thing I wonder about for today regards the recent barrage of hate mail that I received from the Malkinites. I’ll be interested to see if any of them actually show up, and recognize me out on the streets of Washington DC. After all, my picture was on Michelle Malkin’s blog recently – the one where I was wearing the 3D glasses. At protests, as you may know, I don’t wear my glasses, plus it is physically impossible to photoshop one’s hair in real life (remind me to elaborate on that last point later).

So however it goes, it ought to be fun. There’s going to be a photo set about it for Life and Times, and with this being an Infoshop trip along with everything else, I’ll have an opportunity to write some initial thoughts about it in my Journal for your enjoyment.
