The Shocking Goal

Anybody else a runner? Apparently, I am.  Or will be soon. I’m not sure why but, if it kills me, I’m doing the Army Ten Miler here in DC next year. Luckily, the worst case scenario is that you end up walking it but I want to run at least most of it. After seeing […]

I Love LA (I LOVE IT!)… But Not of the Reasons That Brought Me Here…

Ah… friends… Ever have one of those weird/fun/sad trips? Yeah, that’s me right now. Hopped on a plane to LAX and had a really funny, smart seat mate and we gabbed our way to LA which was a great way to start a trip!  Hopefully he comes through with the two invites to his upcoming […]

Can it be? Australia, New Zealand and Africa in One Trip?

Holy cow… this is exciting! Assuming our preliminary plans work out, we’re heading to Australia, New Zealand and Africa from about 20 February to 7 March.  Can you say “epic potential”? I knew you could!  I am so going to have to start posting pictures!! If all goes as planned… 20-23 Jan: London 23-27 Jan: […]

Stalked by Cupcakes

Beyond being a decent name for a band, it’s the reality of my life at the moment. I am craving cupcakes.  Specifically, dark chocolate with cream cheese icing cupcakes. Even more specifically, said type of cupcake from Baked and Wired in Georgetown.  Truly, though, I’ve not met many cupcakes I didn’t like so from vanilla […]

Frosty and Kat Take the Pentagon

The gods of Priceline were kind in my latest endeavour and where did we land?  A HOTEL DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM THE PENTAGON. They really should have charged a fee for the stunning views because they are EVERYWHERE.  You can’t throw a stick without some vision of military-uniform-clad yumminess moseying around.  Except another bit of hotness […]

Dating Hilarity Written by Fellow Hilarious Single Women

My favorite dating blogger, DateMeDC, went speed dating and I literally laughed at loud at her post relating her experiences and for managing to work the Chupacabra into her post. http://datemedc.blogspot.com/2011/01/speed-dating-sequel-or-mythical.html#comments Like DateMeDC, I have been speed dating, but not lately.  When I lived in Portland, Oregon back in the day, I did go speed […]

Even the Luckiest Woman Gets Colds

Santa was mostly awesome to me this year. Clearly, if I’ve been naughty, I managed to hide it from the Jolly Old Elf.  I always knew that my acting chops (and Tyler Sue can attest to them) would come in handy 😉 Sniffling, Sneezing, Coughing, Aching… The only non-awesome part has been the cold that […]

DC, My Old Friend Dressed in Holiday Finery…

By now, it’s pretty clear that I love DC.  As much as I love it in general, DC is even more striking when twinkling with lights,  bedecked with festive ribbons and pine boughs, and sparkling with silver and gold. During this last visit, I got to see how they doll up Old Town Alexandria at […]

Here’s Where Things Get All Jet Set…

The next two weeks are going to be incredible! On Tuesday, I head off to NYC for a viewing of TEDWomen with a group in NYC, a very cool meeting on Wednesday morning then off to Boston for Thursday’s Massachusetts Conference for women, business breakfast on Friday then back to DC (I think). At that […]
