moving: what, again!?

Yes… again. The apartment hunt is on, actually has been on for a few months now with not too much to show for it. I’m on the lookout for a 2 bedroom in the Mount Pleasant/Columbia Heights area and pickings...

in DC: Crafty Bastards

Last week I confessed–to twitter–that I had yet to attend Crafty Bastards. No real reason, I think, just no one else had ever expressed much interest and it wasn’t the kind of thing I wanted to attend solo. Well I...

books: a modest bestiary

My alarms go off at 5:15a and 6:05a in the morning and I’m usually woken up by the middle of an international story on NPR or if I hit the snooze button, The Writer’s Almanac.

birthday: gauntlet? thrown!

I suppose this is a technical win, since it’s wishing me a happy birthday and not an early happy birthday, but it’s still a win. Thanks karona! Are the rest of you going to let her get away with that?...

time: like a clock of the heart

Actually, it’s nowhere near that poetic or new romantic. To be honest, I’m ready to see the past year put in the ground. I’m just shy of a week away from my birthday and one gets into a state of reflection…

video: big cats, tripping balls

This has been cracking me up all morning, at appropriate intervals. I do a little work, get a little stressed and take a OMG CUTE BIG CATS break. It’s a bit old, but Big Cat Rescue posted a video to...

photo: Earth First…

Fatigue caught up with me this weekend and I wasn’t feeling very well, so I didn’t make it outside that much save a food run or two. I didn’t really mind considering the masses descending upon DC for either the...

snippets: on a rainy morning…

I hope everyone out there is having as lovely a morning as us DC folk are. The rain, she’s a comin’ down and showing no signs of stopping! I wish I had the option of these fine city workers to...

race: she said what?!

It’s only because of who it is, that I’m not foaming at the mouth, but I still couldn’t let this go by without comment. Socially conservative talk show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger done gone and put her foot in her mouth on the air… again.

spam: it’s just business

This is officially the best spam comment I’ve seen on my blog this week: HELP! I’m currently being held prisoner by the Russian mafia xyzrxyz penis enlargement xyzrxyz and being forced to post spam comments on blogs! If you don’t...

health: psych!*

First things first, the Afterglow happy hour is still on this evening at Againn from 5-7 (or thereabouts). It’s just going to be technically premature now, but still happening. I went in yesterday afternoon, as usual, it was mentioned that...

on the elevator: blondist

I was on the elevator a few minutes ago to let a new employee in through security. I had my coffee in one hand, iPhone in the other. We have wi-fi in the building and I was being an obsessive...

happy hour: Afterglow

In case you haven’t been following my twitter or Facebook account… I’m almost done with radiation therapy! Barring any complications, Tuesday will be my last day for treatment, the lesions have responded really well and are nearly gone with only...

blog: still here!

Um… surprise hiatus? Yeah, sorry about that, but it’s been a bit of an exhausting few weeks with not much else going on to report.

Ok, not really.

in DC: it’s a miracle?

Anyone living in DC will attest that you often see some really weird stuff lying around in the streets and alleyways after the weekend–but a mobility scooter chair!? You’d think that they might need that!
