in DC: Greyhound celebrates 100 years

One fun thing about working for a federal agency is getting to walk into work past some pretty cool event setups. This morning it was vintage Greyhound buses… WHAT: 100th Anniversary Celebration of intercity motor coach travel. The celebration will...

video: Address Is Approximate

My Friday morning started out with paying medical bills, so even after a nearly two week vacation… I kinda needed this. I don’t have travel-fu. I’m totally unable to research and plan a getaway nor am I able to roll...

photos: Fröhliche Weihnachten!

Isn’t he so adorable for the 5 seconds I got him to sit still? This was one of about 15 photos, and the only one he’d stay for. He knows the stay command, but he just wasn’t into it. With...

weather: numb finger blogging

Ye gods, it is butt ass cold out there! Somewhere in my bones I realize that today is a wee bit better than yesterday as there’s less wind, but still… ouch! Even so, I’m not sure what it says that...

holiday music: a unicorn in the veldt?

I don’t generally go for holiday music. If I forget to bring in something good, I might resort to a Pandora station based around some jazzy or piano holiday tunes. My usual fallback is Christmas Cocktails 1 and 2, with...

office: best advice ever

I don’t know about you, but I am really looking forward to the day–hopefully day and a ½–off. I’m not bothering with all the nonsense of travel, but staying in town as in previous years. Like a moron, I also...

Saturday is usually my lazy day!

The plan seemed simple enough, get up and out to see the new G1 phone at a T-Mobile location. James was our navigator, so he determined we should head to Pentagon City. I haven’t been to Pentagon City in ages,...

the most wonderful time of the year

Forget the holiday song, it’s right now, as August makes its slow slide into the cool, crisp and brisk days of Autumn/Fall. I love finally being able to shut off the air conditioner, and actually wanting to leave the house...

travel: You’re grounded!

I’m no good at traveling, I rarely take vacations sometimes because I either don’t want to go on my own but mainly that I have no head for making the arrangements. Trying to wrangle good air deals and good hotel...

Same Madness, New Year

The same scene over and over again. Long lines, frustrated travelers and no assistance from the clearly over-worked airlines employees. Tell me again why we ALL have to fly at the same time of year to see our loved ones...

The Rainbow Moose says Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone is having a good holiday, whether you’re going to celebrate, or already have or if this is just a few days off for you to sit back and watch the world go nuts over a silly holiday....

Thanksgiving Dinner: The Ultimate Table for One?

In her book, An Alphabet for Gourmets, the late M.F.K. Fisher wrote that “dining alone” has its place, however unpopular. “This misanthropic attitude is one I am not proud of,” she writes, “but it is firmly there, based on my...

A few Sunday table scraps

Yesterday was a bit of a good food day, breakfast, farmers market, and last night’s dinner of salmon roulettes with spinach stuffing, and lime thai-style rice in coconut milk. While I was having breakfast, I saw that my local watering...

And.. I’m back.

And I am going to bed! It was a good trip, I may write more about it later, but for now I’m just exhausted. Doing the flying down and back in the same day really leaves one knackered. Even though...

Well, I’m off!

It should be a pretty easy going trip down and back, but I’m sure to be exhausted when I get home late tonight. I haven’t tried blogging from the iPhone yet, but if the hosp has wifi, I just might....
