in DC: the sounds of hot monkey lovin’

I was up early and decided I needed to shift my ass and take a walk through the zoo. When I map it out, it comes to about 3 miles through and back which may not sound like a long...

Light, Refracted.

A small coffee break to post about the rainbow we got in DC after a quick shower moved through the city. I looked out my window and saw the perfect unbroken double arc outside. So I naturally grabbed my camera...

DC weather: Trade-off

I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again. I have no problem walking through a torrential downpour if we get a good payoff as a result. Yesterday afternoon was downright nasty, and me like a fool just had to...

Paraskavedekatriaphobes, ahoy!

I was getting my cereal and milk this morning and the cashier says, “Have a blessed day!” to which I respond, “Happy Friday the 13th!” I’ve discussed with Christopher that one never really knows what to say in response to...

Too hot to…

Fill in the blank, really. It’s just gross. I feel sleepy even though I’m not tired. I still feel hot even though the office is air conditioned. Weather people say we’re 10 degrees above our average and it must be...

calm after the storm

We had a slightly, but not too, empty office yesterday after the results of the storm. I knew of places without power and school closings, but overall it seems like there wasn’t anything too severe. Had a little blogger meet-up...

Shoeless Hump Day

I can’t say for certain whether today will be a good day or a bad one. I got up a wee bit later than usual as I was having a dream that contributed to me thinking I’d gotten up when...

I don’t give a hoot about what you think

3,739,934 views so far, and I admit that quite a few of those were mine. I already love Weezer, but this video was truly inspired. Metaviral is the only word that really fits, I’m impressed that they were able to...

Stepford Saturday

Ever had a Stepford morning? I used to have them in Alexandria a lot more often. For me it’s a morning when I’m up bright and early, willingly, and a plan forms. Even though I’d been out the previous night...

Random Rainy Ramblings

iPod shuffle is never random. As I was leaving the office getting sprinkled and then full-out rained on, my pop music mix was playing a remix of Rihanna’s “Umbrella”. I advanced to the next song and it was “Umbrella” by...

Ahead, Geek Factor 10!

New TV + VGA/PC Audio Connection + Netflix Watch Instantly + Justice League: The New Frontier = ♥ The other picture shows it off better, but I realized there was some schmutz on the tv which I had to clean...

Wouldn’t Earring Magic be more appropriate?

I was pretty reluctant to get up and out of bed this morning. Last night was movie night which I haven’t done in a long while. I got some good snacking food and drinks and planted my ass on the...

Bag-less

Since it may turn out to be a mild, though not necessarily pretty, day I decided to leave my satchel at home. I’m sure Ford Prefect is looking down on me with disappointment. I don’t know how people do it....

“Men and nature must work hand in hand…”

“Men and nature must work hand in hand. The throwing out of balance of the resources of nature throws out of balance also the lives of men.” — President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Message to Congress on the Use of Our...

Still not quite sprung yet

It’s still a little chilly out there this weekend, but the blossoms around my neighborhood are peaking. I was up on Capitol Hill earlier today freezing my tush off and the trees along Pennsylvania Avenue are still keeping their petals...
