Day 28

mid-day addition: there is some kind of weird satisfaction i get from being able to maneuver my honda accord coupe better than these huge four wheel drive vehicles around me. dc is notorious for having people who can not deal with any form of liquid on the roads. the problem is compounded when that liquid is in some kind of solid state. to make matters worse, there is the sense that if i "throw money at the problem" and buy a gigantic gas guzzling 4x4, i will all of a sudden be the greatest driver in the world. dc proves that is not the case over and over. not only that, but you just made yourself THAT much more dangerous by adding a ton or two of metal careening towards stationary objects along the road.

at the end of the day, it doesnt matter what kind of car you are driving, if you are a bad driver/cant drive in the snow, please dont endanger my life or the lives of those around you by taking on a few inches of snow. its not worth it.


ps bicycles and snow do not mix. to the man that tried to ascend the hills on 20th street nw (not that big of a hill... but he succeeded at blocking a lane of traffic for 2 blocks, taking him almost 10 minutes to get through), please walk, bus, or get a better bike.

Day 26

i think mark brunell and mark sanchez are trying teach us something very important.

you can pick your friends.
you can pick your nose.
but you cant pick your friends nose.

close second is wiping what you did pick, on them

thank you mark and mark for taking time out of the biggest game of the year to provide a moment of education... and sorry again that you weren't able to pull it out last weekend...

no no mark snotchez, we all KNOW you pulled something out of your nose... i meant winning the game.

i wonder what happens when mark brunell isnt around...

Day 25

life is anything but well thought out.

btw, the dirty martini is phenomenal. its this new spot next to midtown, across from public bar in dupont. i didnt order one specific drink. instead the bartender just made things... pretty good too. you do end up paying for the ingenuity but well worth it.

Day 24

congrats to the packers and the steelers...

one quick note on the end of the steelers game. did anyone else notice that after the steelers basically secured the win and just had to take a few knees to run out the clock, on first down, mendenhall jumped on big ben after he took a knee and ever so subtly began "gyrating" on him? it lasted maybe 5 or 6 seconds and it was hilarious.

anyways, other than wanting to see how mendenhall will celebrate with/on big ben if they win the superbowl, im probably going to skip the super bowl all together and just see chromeo in concert instead...
