random: forgotten

It’s said that DC is a very small place and it’s so true. Especially for those that have chosen to make this place their home and aren’t just passing through. My friends often joke that I run into my ex’s...

pride: all ages

Continuing on the Pride trend comes a great announcement from AARP: AARP today announced the launch of a new online Web portal—www.aarp.org/pride—dedicated to serving older lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans. The organization’s first online home base for the...

pride: to the girl…

I typically don’t do very much for Pride in DC anymore, but with it coming up next weekend in DC, this post from a best friend, beautiful person and more than occasionally a myopic little twit* was well-timed: I know...

finally friday: and I’m spent!

I don’t know how some people do this writing every day thing, especially those people with non-blog-related jobs, sheesh! Then again, I don’t know how I used to do it every day back in the day.* Knocking out 500 or...

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...

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…

reality: there’s no whining in fashion!

I don’t watch Project Runway (or any reality shows, they’re a deal-breaker for me) but found the following part of a critique of a recent episode by Tom & Lorenzo–shared by friend J. M. Kincaid–to be both hilarious and appropriate…
