Photos get taken. Photos get posted.

I winnowed it down to the least offensive. The least interesting. The least of the least.

That is the least I could do. Quite literally.

 

I’m so flushed. On the plus side, the urinal will electric shock you for a nickel.

When it’s wrong, it’s wrong.

Bobbleheads and rain.
Nationals + bobbleheads + rain

 

For the record, I did not die during that 1 minute of panic.

The photo is not blurry. You are drunk.

I’m hungry. Let’s get an empanada.

One Day Hike 2015
One Day Hike

I trust you were NOT tempted, but somehow managed to accidentally click the link anyway.

Okay. That’s on you. As long as you’re here…

As some of you may recall, I started writing about life on the edge (okay, living in DC…) on the blog, ParkLife DC.

So far I haven’t been asked to guest on any morning shows or had Jon Stewart lampoon me on The Daily Show.

But the blog about DC is young*.

I’ve written concert reviews and about other interesting ‘topics’ over the last few months.

Shall we have a look at a few of them? That’s okay with you, right?

 

Things I wrote, that I like

My 4th attempt at the annual 50K One Day Hike. How did I do? Should you try it next year?

Drinking and walking. A robust way to enjoy the breweries of DC.

Concert reviews I wrote

Here I pontificate about Mumford & Sons’ show at Merriweather:

Here I look up to The Tallest Man on Earth at Lincoln Theatre:

This one gives the impression I liked The Ting Tings’ show at the 9:30 Club:

Things I wrote about speakeasys and drinking (this is not a theme…)

Harold Black with Jim Beam:

Clicked through all those already?

How about some other examples of not-made-for-primetime reviews…

The Juan Maclean Band:

That’s all I have for you today. Check back in later. We’ll reminisce.

 

*Only five weeks left to get on Jon Stewart’s radar before he leaves The Daily Show! The pressure is on!
