On This Day: Shelfie!

Who knew I was so hip? Taking a shelfie before it was even a thing! I think the “On This Day” apps are fun… to a point. While it’s cool to see where I was, what I was posting on...

wishes: Somewhere that’s green…

I absolutely hate moving, but while looking over a friend’s shoulder at craigslist apartment rental ads this weekend, I noticed the following house for rent that made me think, “Hm… maybe moving wouldn’t be so bad!” At $2,999, it’s a...

photo: free for… hall?

Spotted this on my way out to work this morning. Yesterday afternoon, it was an easel, a few hangers, a roll of hot pink wrapping paper, a small rug and some books. This morning, it’s a TV and a multifunction...

photos: in your skin

There’s a new apartment–or possibly condo, it gets hard to tell the difference–complex under construction near my office and while that’s hardly remarkable in DC, one of the choices for their conceptual stock photos… well, it certainly makes an impression....

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...

home: “Hey you! Pick up that poop!”

Behold, the power of blogging… As you know, things got a little crappy around here with my rant on irresponsible dog owners. On my way home yesterday, it was getting worse as cars had driven through some of the piles...

video: flames, on the side of my… place

I didn’t really intend to have a blogging break, but it was probably a good thing for the holiday. Even so, it wasn’t meant to be such a long time away from writing. Once you’re out of the habit, it’s...

culture: I’m a believer

Look on my vacuum-sealed works, ye mighty, and despair! The exterminator came for the first of two visits yesterday and he could not have been more friendly and professional. Mostly the prep and eradication methods I’d done had helped a...

home: an insect of the family Cimicidae

So… yeah, I’ve got bedbugs. All those times hearing the rhyme, Sleep tight. Don’t let the bedbugs bite! and I thought it was just a cute thing to say at bedtime. Yeah… not. Even though this is just the latest...

moving: all done!

Well… almost. As I stepped out of the shower today, I realized that I didn’t have my bathrobe… which is still hanging on the 3M hook on the back of the bathroom door at my old apartment. Hello, after-work errand!*...

what I will miss: my perch

Right at the top up there in the middle. That’s me! The (current) lair of the urban bohemian. After getting out of that horrible roommate experience 5 years ago, I was really kinda lost. I’d already given up my car...

what I won’t miss: trash

I thought I might have a “what I will miss” entry before another of these, but having taken the day off work to try and get a handle on the clutter and pack some more items, this is really grinding...

moving: bait & switch?

It’s not another craigslist spam story, that’s something right? It is, however, a story of a legitimate ad that was still useless! After returning from errands, I fired up the ol’ browser. For some reason I still have faith that...

moving: Spam, Spam, Baked Beans…

I really thought I was done with the series of moving-related spam posts this week* but clearly not. But it’s Friday, so let’s lighten the mood first off: Salsus told me that I’d mentioned spam far too often not to...

moving: Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam…

I know that craigslist is supposed to be the savior of apartment hunters, but I swear it’s giving me a headache.* I can deal with ads for apartments out of my price range, even one in my own building for...
