On my way out to try the Candy Corn Martini, I noticed the following spray painted on the escalator maintenance shelter at Columbia Heights. BAD WOLF. I’m not sure if this means the universe is still in danger, or that...

“I Almost Made a Racist Joke!”

One thing I didn’t really mention when talking about cleaning up my place is that, with my kitchen counter covered in poison, I haven’t been cooking a lot because I’ve lost my prep space. This isn’t really a problem since...

in DC: It is dark.

Good morning and Happy Hump Day to all! The boy and I are used to leaving the house early enough that we beat the sunrise, and even though we’re used to going to work in the dark, this isn’t exactly what I planned on.

ads: bad timing?

I kept noticing this ad for DC Takes On HIV in the Columbia Heights metro station for the past week: When I visit my doctor, I Ask For The Test. It’s not just for me. It’s because I care about...

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...

in DC: creative express

Just one of those “Ha ha, neat!” moments from this morning’s commute. Normally both the Express and Examiner guys are out there, handing out the free daily papers. Sometimes neither is there* and the riders self-serve. I thought today would...

time: thirty-something

In roughly thirty-something days, I’ll be turning a new thirty-something of my own. Freakouts have already begun about this. You can’t help but evaluate your life, where you are, where you thought you’d be. I see myself as getting too...
