shopping: MidCity Dog Days & Alexandria Sidewalk Sale

I distinctly remember these shopping events taking place separately in the past, but this upcoming weekend is both MidCity Dog Days in DC and the Annual Summer Sidewalk Sale in Old Town and Del Ray. I remember Dog Days last...

shopping: just a few things

Wednesdays are telework days for me and they are often super-productive. I can get a lot more work done without interference from co-workers and clients and I can get the odd chore done at home without much time lost to...

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...

health: such a little thing…

I completely misjudged how long it would take me to get into work this morning, so here I sit at quarter to 7 in a nearly completely empty office. Which is actually a really nice thing. People always ask why...

wednesday wishes: Me wantee!

My plan to try and write everyday this week* was nearly derailed by some kind of crud lurking in my system. At this point I’m convinced that the few molecules of pollen I’ve allowed near me while not yet protected...

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...

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!*...

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...

day trip: Virginia ‘villes and ‘burgs

Since we figured too many people would be heading towards the beach this past weekend, Randy and I took a day trip in the opposite direction into Virginia. We didn’t really have a plan in mind, though stopping off for...

earth day: the green monster

Is everyone learning a lot about how to be more green this week and especially today? Good. Will anyone other than the more socially conscious remember anything next week? Probably not. My BGA is putting on their dog & pony...

shopping: zombie attack!

That’s sort of what it felt like when Michael and I went to Macy’s yesterday for a bit of shopping. We were fine in the bedding/linens area, and no one approached us in kitchen/housewares. When we got up to the...
