    No, waving your arms and yelling ineffectually inside your metal box does NOT entitle you to turn right from the center lane of Thomas Circle.

    I got about 80% of the way to work this morning before I realized I forgot my laptop. Since pretty much my entire job occurs on that laptop, being at work without it is not terribly productive.
