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 […]

Does it make more sense to Bikeshare or Bikeown?

It is no secret that I can be a major bicycle evangelist. I am a born-again rider – like many kids, I learned to ride a bike in my driveway sometime in kindergarten. My interest tapered off once I hit ‘begging mom for rides to the mall’ age, and it wasn’t until I moved to […]

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. And by shameful, I actually mean oddly unsanitary—like “I need to hunt down the inventor of Purell hand-sanitizer and thank him by agreeing to birth his first born, NOW” unsanitary. 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 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 […]

Our date with the pet psychic

You guys might not know this but apparently Fargo, North Dakota is a hot bed of psychic activity. How do I know this? Because I now know everything my dog really thinks of me. And it’s terrifying. But let me explain. My boyfriend’s mom, Karen, recently consulted a local pet psychic when struggling to decide […]

How to follow through on your New Year’s Resolution

So, you’ve made a New Year’s Resolution! Congratulations. You are awful, and you need to be fixed. What better time to emotionally self-flagellate than the completion of an arbitrary unit on the Gregorian calendar? You are, like, really serious about it this year. You mean it. But what about those of us who forgot to […]
