November 26, 2018

A small bug crawling up the wall. What is that? A tick? Closer inspection confirms that it is probably not a tick. But, I’m still not convinced. It has some weird long thing that comes out of it’s head. It’s tiny though. Squash. Flush. Move on. Oh. There’s his friend. Must be looking for him. […]

Follow the Leader

November 07, 2018

Halloween in Glover Park is pretty amazing. (Shut up, I know it’s November 6th.) This year we were at the head of the neighborhood parade again. This isn’t a coveted position. It just means you got to the lineup late and last, so when the entire gang of people turn around to head out, you’re […]

DCPS Will Land Me in an Early Grave

September 10, 2018

Things I don’t have time for: another school committee. Things this idiot just volunteered for: another school committee. When I heard the history of said committee, I felt like I couldn’t not help. I shared my interpretation of how DC Public Schools work (or rather, don’t work) with a parent of older children.  They congratulated […]
