Things I Regret Not Savoring During Unemployment

Parties in DC are the worst when you are unemployed.  You’ll be minding your own business, just trying to enjoy your fourth (or sixth—no judgments in the land of unemployment) Cape Cod, when some 22 year-old Hill staffer will come bounding up to you to asking, “So, Lindsay, what is it exactly you do?” You […]

Some Concerns I Have About Titanic 3D

I saw Titanic for the first time over Christmas break in sixth grade. I remember this, because that is the moment the Earth skidded to a grinding halt on its axis. The pinnacle of human creative potential had been reached. No film would ever need to be made again. Indeed, no art would ever need […]

How Your Boy Band Crush Secretly Determined Your Future

With the wave 90’s boy bands recently reuniting on stage, adult females are suddenly busting out faded concert t-shirts from the back of closets throughout America. 98 Degrees, New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys have all decided to pretend it’s 1998 again, and for someone that regularly jams to the “Ace of Base […]

DC dating doesn’t have to disappoint

Not to throw a certain boyfriend under the metaphorical blogosphere bus, but I was recently subjected to a pretty shameful DC date.

Our dinner and […]

Getting robbed sucks and other obvious news

Living in DC sometimes requires us to make sacrifices. And for me that sacrifice is sunlight and humanity—my life is largely spent living underground in a basement apartment. This arrangement allows me to save rent money and cultivate a fondness for other burrowing creatures (or as I like to think of them, allies). In this […]

Dispatches from a standing desk

According to recent studies, if you spend your work day sitting at a desk, you are statistically already dead by now. This caught the attention of my manager, who was inspired to tackle the problem by replacing our regular desks with standing ones . While the idea first struck me as a bit bonkers, I […]

The Quest for the Perfect DC Gym

I like to start my New Year’s fitness resolutions around the beginning of February so that I can pretend to have been really committed by the time March rolls around. All the people that foolishly started their resolutions on January 1st are typically weeded out by this time, allowing me to feel a sense of […]

Forget Shameful: Celebrity Gossip

Award season is once again upon us, and thus my cold and somewhat callous heart could almost explode from the joy of watching film nerds rubbing elbows with Tilda Swinton, sparkly dresses, and an open bar all in one glorious evening. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. After all, it’s the only season […]

The best of DC tourism promo photography

One question I am surprised to be asked so often, both in my capacities as a blogger, and human residing within the limits of the District of Columbia, is “what should I do while I’m there?” There are, of course, plenty of things to do and see during your stay in Washington, DC. It is […]
