Kenneth Starr's hotel room faux pas

 I read an article on NPR this morning about men in hotel rooms and their interactions with the house keeping staff.  At the end of this article, the author notes that people behave in hotels as if they are at home and that maybe they should be more aware of boundaries… Read full post »

Packin' Up & Headin' Out Soon

After much frustration in using this site, I've begun to set myself up at a different one so that I can blog using the latest in blogging technology - at least it seems that way.  For a short while, I did the RDP - Razzle Dazzle Picks - because I thought… Read full post »

The Single Lady's Registry

One of my friends married her fiance/love today.  I didn't go to the wedding.  I love her, but am sick of weddings and think they are a ridiculous waste of money.  Bottom line, they're social statements proclaiming that said man and said woman are no longer publically available for cou… Read full post »

Yes, I fell down when I went to step off the curb and cross the street to the bus stop yesterday morning.  My left ankle rolled and down I went onto the pavement.  The only casualty: my black patent leather shoe (kitten heal, completely reasonable).  A hunk was taken out of… Read full post »

I have nothing to celebrate.

"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light canRead full post »

 I just found this and hope it goes viral.  I am so proud of this man for standing up and taking on the very small man that is Donald Trump and all of those who would call themselves Patriots and fall in line with Trump's deep-seated racial beliefs.
 
Trump campaign manager Carl Paladino, former Republican Candidate for NY Governor and CEO/Don of Paladino Family Crime Construction Company, has issued a statement that President in Waiting Trump will hold a press conference today, Wednesday, April 27, at 12:00 noon, Eastern Standard T… Read full post »

On the Campaign Trail: President (in Waiting) Trump

Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump's interview with Katie Couric of "Finally My Own TV Show!"

Katie Couric:  "Mr. Trump - "

Donald Trump: "Please address me as President in Waiting Trump, Katie."

Couric: (Clears throat and breathes deeply.  Speaking slowly.) "President in Waiti… Read full post »

I was feeling guilty, but I don't think I should.  I went to the doctor this morning, and arrived 15 minutes early after commuting an hour and a half through morning traffic via metro and zipcar.  Her office is only 7 miles away and in real world time, that would take… Read full post »

Boehner: Prepare for Garbage.

Some people I know who live on Capital Hill reside just down the street from House Speaker Boehner.  When the government shuts down tonight at midnight, DC trash collection will cease.  Absolutely no trash will be picked up during the entirety of the shutdown, no matter how long it las… Read full post »

I'm doing it. Damn it.

My rowing class starts in two weeks.  I'm craving Mexican Food and won-ton soup with those crunchies floating around in it.  I'm listening to Bill Withers and wondering why more men can't/won't be just as expressive as he was in his music and still be mentally stable.  Did he really wr… Read full post »

Oh my God!  I'm frantic.  I went to Yahoo's homepage to see the only headline that could be worse than "Elizabeth Taylor Passes Away" - this is worse than anything I could have ever imagined: "Controversial Diet About to Hit US."  I'm distraught.  I just can't imagine anything wor… Read full post »

Do Me I'm Irish

I bought a T-shirt at Spencers about four years ago that says "Do Me, I'm Irish" and has a four leaf clover printed on it.  One of my friends informed me that there is actually a whole market for "Do Me, I'm Irish" gear, such as hats, ones-ies for babies, and… Read full post »

I am not ok.

Less than a week from now, I have to go in for a biopsy. 

There are cells living in me at this moment that are abnormal, but were caught early enough that they may all be removed via the procedure.  This happened to another family member and they were all… Read full post »

Bye-Bye Moon Cycle :( ...

I took the first birth control pill in the pack today.  Because of a history of certain cancers in my family, it's been recommended that I take it to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer (hormone therapy to reduce cancer risks?).  I don't like it. I don't want to do it,… Read full post »

DC Rallied and Stands With Wisconsin

I showed up at Dupont Circle today at 12:00 noon sharp for the rally to support Wisconsin.  I showed up expecting to stay about an hour and to only take pictures...oh, was I in for an afternoon of spontaneity.  I was there about five minutes when a man walks up to… Read full post »

There I was, penis in hand

I knew I could get you to read my blog!!!  Hahaha. Ok, back to the post:

No, it wasn't my penis.  I actually don't have one.  But, that's another story.

Actually, I'm sitting here thinking about how badly I want to get laid, and thought about what it feels like to… Read full post »

Regulating Abortions in VA - GOP Success

The General Assembly of VA has just passed legislation that requires abortion clinics that perform at least five first-trimester abortions a month to be regulated with the same standards as hospitals.  Granted, these abortions are outpatient procedures, just as plastic surgery and oral surgery a… Read full post »

The RDP #8 - Take It Back Edition

As I watch the GOP destroy forty years of women having control over their own bodies, destroy 100 years of progress made in the labor movement which affects the majority of men, women, and children, I sit and realize that I am sad.   I know no other way to say it. … Read full post »

That Snollygoster of a Mumpsimus!

In all of my geekiness, I have Merriam-Webster's Dictionary saved on my toolbar amongst my favorites.  While looking up a word last week, I happened to look over in the sidebar thingy and see that they had compiled a list of "10 Rare and Amusing Insults."  I've listed them below and… Read full post »

Why I'm not married - Oryoki's OC

I'm just so glad I have the opportunity to share the reasons why I'm officially an Old Bag.  I'm going to dispense with the intro and get right to it:

1. I'm not your mother.  Sorry, boys, I'm not going to be calling you every hour on the hour so that… Read full post »

The Valentines that make it better.

I was doing fine until I went into the Valentine aisle at CVS last Tuesday to buy my mom and sister valentines.  That was when the first feeling of misery struck.  I walked to the metro thinking about how I wouldn't be receiving any Valentines or flowers from that "someone special"… Read full post »

Let's just get rid of women.

House Republicans have proposed a budget that eliminates over 60 government programs according to this AP Article.  One of those programs is family planning assistance.  WIC, or The Women, Infants, and Children program, that provides financial assistance to mothers who are pregnant and/or h… Read full post »
