What I Was Up to – January 2017

On to January – I’m only 7 months behind, I can still catch up, right? Doug and I headed to National Harbor for dinner. Baby! We met Janine and Ron for dinner – in DC at Zengo. I believe Diana and her husband joined us too. We didn’t manage a group photo, but we did get our twinsie Rey boots: … Continue Reading →


The Return

Just a short post with a couple of pics from seeing The Return last January. Always love a chance to see the guys, though we ended up not being able to work out dinner again. At least the weather cooperated this time – I managed to miss them plus a makeup show because of ice! I didn’t have a great … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To – July, Part 1

I’m way behind on pretty much everything, but here are some July pics, because I have to start somewhere! With Amber and Jody – two smart and awesome ladies who also work on JWST! We had lunch to talk about outreach stuff! My friend Unni sent me a care package from Norway and it had this nice, mild brunost (brown … Continue Reading →


Barenaked Ladies, Baltimore Arena, 2001

So here is something I never blogged about here because it happened a long time ago – and also all my pics are film. It was pre-digital and also I didn’t want my camera getting confiscated just in case, so I bought a point and shoot disposable camera. Worked out really well! And thank goodness I had a camera! Here … Continue Reading →


Fleetwood Mac Concert

So Doug and I saw Fleetwood Mac at the Verizon Center last Friday. I’d never seen them before but with Christime McVie touring again, I really wanted to see them! And when they added a second DC show (I couldn’t make the first), I splurged on good tickets. We ended up in Row V on the aisle, which ended up … Continue Reading →


Greensboro Adventure, part 2 – Paul McCartney

So when I last posted, we were going to try to surprise Janine with Katie’s appearance at the Paul McCartney concert. Despite the fact that there were multiple pay lots near the Colliseum, somehow we ended up in the same lot. We hid Katie behind everyone else, and Janine walked towards us apparently thinking “why are they all just standing … Continue Reading →


First Aid Kit

We were lucky enough to get a second chance to see First Aid Kit recently in DC. They played at Lisner Auditorium at GW University in DC. I was able to snag 4th row seats so we had a pretty good view, though not as close as we were for the 9:30 Club. A lot less standing, which was good … Continue Reading →

A while ago (after a tortured ticket-buying experience, wherein advertised pre-sale codes were withheld, except for a secret fan club few people seemed to know about, but wof hich I am now a member) I bought Neil Finn tickets for the Lincoln Theater in DC. Oddly, they were general admission. This is odd because the Lincoln Theater has seats, unlike … Continue Reading →


What I’ve been up to October/November (fall, meeting BNL’s drummer, old friends, Star Trek, and more)

Key Lime cupcake. Nom nom: Godiva had fall themed chocolates! I got a chocolate skull for Halloween. Yum. My favorite tree. Everything was so slow to turn this year.


What I’ve Been Up To… July

My friend Alex sent this email to our computer help desk about a bug in his monitor. Literally a bug just died inside his monitor! The email made me laugh. Hi Sysadmins, I’ve got a real doozie for you guys today. There is a bug in my machine. Specifically in my LCD monitor somewhere between the polarizing filter and the … Continue Reading →


Paul McCartney, Nationals Park, DC

Here’s my concert report for the Paul McCartney show I caught with Conley and Janine at the Nationals Stadium in DC. We were smart and got Janine her ticket the night before the concert. We figured it might be a clusterf**k to find her before the show and when there are big crowds, cell phones don’t always work well. It … Continue Reading →


First Aid Kit

So a while ago I stumbled across this video. I fell in love with the song (and I love the video too!) and I started listening to the group. They’re Swedish sisters and are called “First Aid Kit”. They played a show in DC at the Synagogue at 6th and I, which is a magical venue. The acoustics are awesome. … Continue Reading →
