weekend wrap-up: Halloween!

The past few years I’ve been going into Halloween with no real plans, but seeing what comes of the evening. I don’t do costumes unless I’ve been invited to a costume party and I really don’t enjoy going out to...

weekend wrap-up: bake sale!

I was tagged in 6 Facebook photos following this weekend. I’m pretty sure that’s a record for me! And rather than bore you in one long post about the weekend, it’s only fitting that I instead bore you in a...

health: winning another battle

“When she woke up and saw they’d taken both breasts, she knew…” It sounds like a line from a horror story, but it was the best thing we could have heard last night. A friend was at GWU Hospital yesterday...

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!*...

moving: closet zero

Wow. As I said on brightkite, I honestly never thought I would get to this point. My closet–after coming out of it–ended up being a catch all for just about everything else that doesn’t normally see the light of day....

food: White House Farmers Market

So, yeah.. how was your Thursday afternoon? I can’t even try to play it cool, Shaw Girl and I went over to the opening of the new Farmers Market by the White House* and when Michelle took the stage, we...

time: birthday week, birthday week…

I am still deriving far too much pleasure from adding whatever word I like after “birthday” and singing it to the tune of Birthday Sex by Jeremih.* I was lucky (?) enough to hear this song during brunch at Tonic...

definitions: WIN and FAIL

For the layperson who still might not have noticed the lingual-drift that’s caused these two words to mean so much more than we ever learned growing up, here’s are some helpful current real-world examples. This is made of WIN For...

night out: The Two Towers at Wolf Trap

I really wish I’d mentioned this sooner so people would have had a chance to make plans to go. A few weeks ago, I won my company’s ticket raffle for Wolf Trap tickets to see The Lord of the Rings:...

food: RW at co co. sala

One of the best things, in my opinion, about Restaurant Week are the lunch options. In deference to many DC workers that have to head back home to the burbs after work, it’s nice that they have the option to...

food: RW at Cedar

This will be a quickie as I didn’t bring my good camera and I don’t have much to say aside from: GO. Since DC Restaurant Week is in full-swing now, it may not be easy to get a table at...

food: brunch at eventide

If I had the time and could find a coffeehouse that offered this, I’d be happy to delay my start time at the office for a little sit down and a nice cup of coffee. Being french press, this did...

time: not a good look!

Y’know, I was feeling pretty good this morning… I haven’t been picking up Express* lately as I was finishing off a book**, but this morning thought I might try to challenge my brain with the Sudoku puzzle at the hard...
