As Facebook’s On This Day is doing its best to make sure I don’t forget a rather painful and difficult breakup from three years ago1, I’m trying to focus on more pleasant, more recent experiences. Found myself in Georgetown with...

Scene from a Perfect Happy Hour

I know it seems dark and lonely, but this shot taken last week at Libertine in Adams Morgan is what the perfect start to a happy hour looks like for me. I love getting there when it starts, if possible,...

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...

Klingle Ford Bridge

Last Sunday, I was up and ready for my usual brunch at Medium Rare a bit earlier than usual so I decided to take a bus to Woodley Park and walk north to Cleveland Park with the extra time.1 It’s...

Be Prepared… with Pretzels

Spotted by me and a colleague on Monday while heading to lunch in the Navy Yard area: I have no idea what was happening over the weekend, but clearly someone needed pretzels on a string. Perhaps as a necklace, or...

Pick a Purple Pepper?

I have never really felt like I had a green thumb. My mother never had any trouble with plants around the house or in our greenhouse growing up. I could never keep anything green alive for very long and mostly...

Chicken and Waffles at Woodward Table

Cheez-Its, am I right? Looking back to a time when I was in one those, “just because I can” moods. Honestly, what else was I supposed to do with Scrabble Cheez-Its aside from eat them? And can we talk about...

Living Tomato Ripeness Chart

From Reddit by way of Boing Boing, this is a perfect tomato ripeness chart. Or tomato audio meter. Or a tomato-based video game health bar… I haven’t talked about my garden much this year but my cherry tomatoes did return,...

social media: instagram mosaic

So… that’s new. I’m used to getting random favorites and followers on instagram and most of them being “buy followers!” accounts, but this is a new tactic. At least it’s new to me. It’s definitely impressive and is banking on...

photos: Kogan Plaza at GWU

Letting the wind (after the wind actually showed up) carry us where it may, we ended up walking from Farragut Square over to the Albert Einstein Memorial by way of Foggy Bottom/GWU and stopped off for some photos in Kogan...

photos: Hey… I shot that!

Work has been kinda busy lately, so I’ve fallen behind on my “3 days a week” writing self-assignment. But to be honest, I was never very good with homework, including that which I assign myself. Leading up to the weekend,...

in DC: Franciscan Monastery

It’s pretty common that when you live in DC for a long time, you tend to take its sights for granted. Smithsonian? Seen it. Monuments? Yeah, sure. White House? Walk past it all the time. And even the sights you’ve...

photo: …they CAN jump!

Even though it was a warm and muggy day, it didn’t keep this guy down. Taken during a Martial Arts exhibition at the Asian Heritage Festival this past weekend.  The festival was a bit smaller than anticipated, and the food...

photo: gambling gnomes?

I’ve heard of garden gnomes getting up to some strange things in backyards, but nothing prepared me for finding telltale signs of a gnome gambling ring in the planters on my patio… Having a ground floor patio in a multi-story...
