Looks like we’ve got a vigilante in our midst

Commenter, friend, and recent birthday girl Lemmonex mentioned the term “vigilante justice” as has to do with people cutting in line yesterday. That got me to thinking, and eventually led me to the most memorable case of vigilante justice, and that’s because the offender ended up in handcuffs.
It was 1999. HFStival was at what is [...]

End of the line

The scene: Petsmart. Four people wait in line behind the customer checking out at the only open register. I-66 is third in line. Two registers over, a Petsmart worker appears, evidently ready to start serving customers, but since he doesn’t speak it remains unclear. A fifth person joins the line.
Customer 3: [to Customer 2] “If [...]

24gasm – Part 2

Things are getting curiouser and curiouser at the conclusion of the two-night, four-hour premier of 24.
Okay, so Dirty Tony is evidently not really dirty after all. This was a foreseeable turn (Suicide Blond), but I still maintain that Tony bites it before the end of the season. What was not foreseeable, however, was the [...]

24gasm: Day 7 begins!

So… Anything interesting on TV last night? Let’s see… AFC Championship Game that was out of reach before the 4th quarter? No… Oh, I got it.

First of all, right about now I want to marry Annie Wersching (FBI agent Renee Walker). Let me just get that out of the way. Dibs. Got [...]

Prank you

When I saw Sarah’s entry about her senior class prank, I got to thinking. I don’t think we had one single joint-effort prank our senior year. What we did have, however, was many little things – I won’t call all of them pranks – that equaled “awesome” when added up.

The summer before our senior [...]


Longtime readers here know that I make no bones about my Bon Jovi enjoyment. Since I’ve been writing (4 years this summer), I’ve seen Bon Jovi 3 times: Once at Live 8 in Philadelphia, the concert I live blogged at Verizon Center in February of 2006, and with Lemmonex at Verizon Center, led off by [...]

Comparison, shopping

It’s been nearly 8 months since I made the move from suburban Virginia and roommatehood to DC and livingalonehood. To be frank, there are some things I miss about having roommates, and some things I really appreciate about living alone, so I decided to break it down for myself.
When living with roommates, there usually is [...]

Tick Tock

The only reason that you’re conscious right now is because I don’t want to carry you.
You are going to tell me everything I want to know or I swear to God I will hurt you before I kill you, and no one will be able to stop me.
You have no idea how far [...]

Would you like some cheese to go with that?

While the puppy was being transfixed by the kangaroos on Planet Earth in HD, I was having a look around the intertubes and noticing a prevailing theme on places like gchat, Twitter, and the MyFace, and it went a little something like this:
“Going back to work on Monday is going to suck after being off [...]

TMI Thursday: Vom.

After a break from TMIness for the holidays, we’re back, baby. The past couple of rounds have been about other people, but this one’s about me.

Not but a couple of years ago, a group of I think five began the night at Clarendon Ballroom. Buoyed by a bartender we knew, I proceeded to [...]
