Internet Dating
Failed Southern Lady
This may be the definitive indictment of Internet dating and the men who use it. FSL is on a tear here. An excerpt:

…the most often suggested means of meeting men short of spending Saturday night standing on a street corner in a micro-mini is internet dating. I have friends who swear by it. I know people who married the guy they met on Well, god bless you all! Just leave me the hell alone, thank you. I call it the land of the maladjusted, malingerers, miscreants, and misanthropes for a reason….

Sheehan vigil in Dupont Circle
The Life and Times and Chai
Chai attends a
MoveOn vigil for Cindy Sheehan.

The cool thing about it was that I got to see SUCH a diverse crowd in Dupont Circle. There were older people there. Actually, now that I reflect back, there were mostly older people (when I say older people, I mean people over the age of 55 years). I was amazed! I hope I keep my political activism up when I am older. I also saw families. I saw young professionals, students, and hippies. I kept thinking, “This is why I enjoy DC.”

All about *ette
The Kitchenette
This is a new food blog, smartly written, which introduces itself with a take on: *ette — the sassy suffix appears in words such as: cigarette, drum majorette, novelette, Antoinette, Wonkette, lorgnette (a pair of opera glasses with a short handle) and yours truly, kitchenette. There’s also a report from an “

… a creperie meets bubble teahouse named snap came to the surface of the red brick alleyway. the sterile white paint job, beaming lights and charming lowercase font were almost as striking as its innovative combination. how come we didn’t think of this before? the menu contained both “savory” and “sweet” crepes with a diverse line-up of fillings—chicken guacamole, spicy thai tuna, white chocolate peanut butter, red bean paste, mint chocolate chips, surely unique enough to wow even the French.

Mobile Photo Weblog rides the Circulator
Small Picture
Our writer uses either her RAZR V3 mobile phone or my Casio Exilim digital camera to take photos on the go. This particular post is about the DC Circulator bus.

This bus route is designed for people who want to go out and about, not just to work. When I first saw it, I thought Wow, here comes the party bus, but unfortunately, it only operates until 9PM. On the bright side, it’s scheduled to arrive at each stop every 5-10 minutes, and it only costs one dollar per ride (compared to $1.25 for a Metro bus ride).
