A retelling of my life in DC and all the stupid ass sh!t I get myself into...

New Job

What’s the happs party peoples? Sorry that I’ve fallen off the edge of the world for a hot minute or two… Things have just been entirely too hectic recently for me to catch up on any bloggin’ here and there… I’ve started a new job, which puts a HUGE dent in my blogging time as I don’t have nearly the amount of down time I used to at my old job. On the up side, the new location is great!! I’m off by 4ish on most days and I now work 4 metro stops from where I live! Love the commute, but the parking fees kinda suck! $10+/day…. Ugh. O well, you do whacha gotta do to make it to work on time. I also had to down grade to a 2ft antenna on the jeep in order to fit in the parking deck, but the reception is still good on that one so it’s not that big of a deal. Hope all is well with you guys and you’re gearing up for some kick a$$ new years parties!

Movie Popcorn?

I know it's a bit hard to read, but this is the menu from the movie theater where I went to see Aeon flux in Georgetown, now is it just me or did the days of just movie popcorn disappear? You can order quesadilla's, chicken tenders, and burgers at this place isn't this a little bit much for just a regular theater or has this been happening all across the country?

Leaving Texas

This weekend started out much like any other weekend would... sh!tty DC everyone wants out of their office traffic, some lazy time on the couch (LOVE IT!!) then off to the bar to meet up with some peoples as the happy hour is very close to my house... about 2-3 metro stops depending on how you count. What a great turn out!! It's been a while since our friday happy hour has been this good! Any wayz... i'm kinda restless as I've been wanting to see this group all week long called Leaving, TX. Just stumbled accross them randomly on the web, but they have a great sound and just got a CD put out so this was sorta their CD release party. (there's a few trax to download on their website if you wanna give a listen) Anyhow, i mentioned this to a few people, and next thing you know... we took off to go hear em! Score! They were playing at Austin Grill... Xcellent food and a pretty good drink specials. But they are part of this new no smoking in the bars bit... strange to me being from NC, but whatever floats your boat.

Tequila Christmas Cake

1-cup water
1-tsp. baking soda

1-cup sugar
1-tsp. salt
1-cup of brown sugar
Lemon juice
4 large eggs
Some Nuts
1 bottle tequila
2-cups dried fruit

Sample the tequila to check quality.

Take a large bowl. Check the tequila
again, to be sure it is of the highest quality.
Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point, its best o make sure the tequila is still OK.
Try another
cup...just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Pick the frigging fruit up off the floor. Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a rewscriver. Next, sift two cups of salt. Or something.
Check the tequila. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window. Finish the tequila and wipe counter with the cat.

Chicken 'n' Waffles...

So apparently, this trend is back!!! & I'm psyched... bringing together things I love.... like chicken & breakfast foods. There's a new place in the DC area just opening up serving such an item. If you glance at the website tho, either they seem to want to take this trend to a more upscale market or they spent waaaay too much on their web developers... b/c somethin isn't adding up. When I think chicken & waffles....
...This is what I'm thinkin. A giant animated bird logo, open 24 hours a day, with some hella tasty food. More of a waffle house-esque sorta place. So, did I miss something with the opening of this new high class chicken 'n' waffle place?? I'll promise you this... I'll be investigating personally and will let you know what I find!!

First Snow Rant

The first snow of the year in DC and already the govt. workers are shutting down!! Not even an inch on the road, and all the stores are out of bread & milk... silly people, the staples are beer and fried chicken, not bread & milk! What are they thinkin!?!?!?

Dear random person in my way going 25 under the speed limit on 95/295/395/66/MD50/VA50/Glebe,
I weave b/c I know my vehicle and it's abilities, b/c you are going 25 under the freakin speed limit and I'm late for work at a job I h8. Don't you worry, I'll still come back and pull your dumb Toyota Camry a$$ out of that ditch you just drove yourself into b/c your going to the fcukin store to buy all the fcukin bread & milk in the entire tri-state area for this "weather emergency". I would like to take a minute to thank the power of locking front and rear differentials that allow me superior traction and give me peace of mind which I don't need b/c there's no fcukin snow or ice on the road to start with!!! If you can't drive in these conditions, stay the hell off the roads and stop screwin it up for the rest of us that can! If you still need bread & milk... click here!

Best Regards,
The Jeep that just cut you off!
