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


I've been thinking on some of the things I've learned over the years that no one bothered to tell me while I was growing up. Today, I'd like to discuss the concept that your personal Time, Energy, & attention are finite resources. Whether you measure it by the day, by the month or by the year. It all amounts to the same thing, you can only do so much. How about we think of all these items combined into one big pie chart to represent 100% of everything you can do. Let's toss in some of the basic sections…. There is Physical Fitness, a social piece of the pie, also family, financial, professional/career, & well, you get the point. Add in your own for this example as you see fit.

Basically, I'm convinced that I can achieve over 110% for myself yet every time I try it, I prove myself wrong. Put in an extra 25% into social life, and either your physical fitness or your financial or your professional will take the hit. Whether the entire 25% comes out of one category or a portion of it from all three, it's still a hit. Over and over I've tried to find an extra piece of the pie so to speak, but unfortunately, this pie is a finite resource. And I learn this lesson reputedly. Push your self too hard at work or socially, you end up getting sick (ie. Physical Fitness). I could make examples and scenario's up the wazoo, but you get the idea.

Oh, and in case you are wondering what the hell that GE Wind Turbine picture is doing here... that's a play on finite fossil fuels and renewable resources. Get it? Now, if only I could find my own personal GE Wind Turbine device... hmmmm.

I have absolutely no clue what triggers random memories, but I felt like I had to share this one with you. I have lived in DC for going on 5 years now and am getting pretty good at getting around, not getting lost, using the bus/metro, etc. Well, as you might imagine, this was not always so. This takes me back to one of my first times going out in the city after I moved here. I have no idea where I went, but I do know it was a Friday night and the venue was a bar with friends. Well, it's time for last call and I head for the metro. Managing to catch the last orange line train from the mid-town area. Think Farragut Square or McPherson. Now, I need a blue line to actually get home, but we'll get to that. I meet a nice couple on the train and we start chatting and exchanging stories, next thing you know we are at Balston Metro. Ok, so far, the story is pretty lame b/c we've all missed our stops on the metro.

All three of us jump of the metro and proceed to argue with the station master that Rosslyn doesn't exist as he's busy throwing us out of the station. If it was just me, I'm new to the city and a tourist, I could see it. But the couple that had lived here for a while was 100% on my side!! In retrospect... I just sit back and chuckle at the silly hot headed kid that was 100% convinced that Rosslyn Metro didn't exist as I pass by it on the blue line train.

The Word


posted by Cptn S.A. Ho @ 1:06 AM, ,


Ok, I have been such a worthless slacker when it comes to posting for the past week or so. I've had family in town for a week or so, namely Grandma & my step dad. We were able to enjoy many nice meals together at Chinatown Garden, Lebanese Taverna, Famous Dave's... you get the idea. There was much feasting. We did some touristy stuff, took in a museum or two & visited with some old friends of grand ma's. Over all, it was very nice. I hate to keep using the word nice, but I really can't put it much better. I've never really enjoyed family time very much, so the fact that I was able to enjoy the conversation and company on this family visit was very pleasant and deff. a positive first for me. Perhaps not a first, but a first in quite some time.

Below, I took a photo with my berry in the Ansel Adam's exhibit, it was quite nice and a much needed break from life!

Another Saturday Niiiight....

So, let's add this to my failed attempts of not going out! I had spent a long day in the city with family doing touristy stuff and family stuff. Both very draining things for me. I'm driving home, I'm tired, when all of a sudden I get a text from a friend who's people are all bailing on her. Wow.. that sucks. But she used the magic words...

Wanna get a round at Bailey's?

Rat's! I'm powerless against this option! So, of course I'm in for it. As we are heading to the intended destination, we take a small detour and end up at the Crystal City Resteraunt (What? It's on the way, sorta!) for what was supposed to be one round. A few hours later... wouldn't you know it we ended up closing the place down. I had a blast, but clearly, their staff is well trained at seperating the clients from their money!! The girls were walking out with freakin grocery bags of money!! Wow... just wow!

Fire Dancer

So there we were out at a happy hour, which turned into a small migration to this party up in Tacoma. The party was ok, but the coolest part by far were the fire dancers in the front yard. I think there were three of 'em, they all had their gear and seemed to know what they were doing. Based on the speedy arrival of the cops, I'm guessing the neighbors really didn't think it was cool at all!!

Crystal City

This is another one of those spots in DC that I really enjoy. The CC water park. We had a company outing here on Friday catered by Famous Dave's with some nice ambient techno in the background. Really, a great spot for any outdoor event!!!

What a Weeeeeeekend!!

Ok, buckle up sports fans, this one is gonna be a long read. I'm talkin' - set an away message and put up an out of office reply on your outlook - long read!! Oh, and just so you know, you wanna sing What a weeeeeeeeekend kind of like "What a Feeling" by the Global Deejays. As I was walking this morning debating how to better approach this post, I was tempted to do fun stuff like tags and what not to help navigate all the days that are involved. However, I'm just gonna go old school and write strait through… hope you stick with it!

Day 1 (back to top)

The weekend sorta started off Wednesday when I was feeling a little under the weather in the morning and took the whole work from home route. I know, weekend? It's only freakin Wednesday!! So, it's a light yet restful day of working from home sucking down OJ and taking vitamins… wouldn't you know it? Come 4ish, I'm feeling 100% better & it's time to kick it off with a little Dreidel Hour!! What is that you might ask? Well, it's happy hour(s) with one of my Fav peeps... it has just been nicknamed Dreidel hour - I just think it's more fun to say! We had a few rounds of Guitar hero and a couple small rounds. Awesome conversation as always, and I was bestowed one of the finest complements I've ever had via text later on that evening from this Dreidel hour. Deff good times!

Now it's time to move on. This evening, I'm hitting Richmond to catch up with a friend of mine whom I haven't seen in years!! Sounds good, go out down town take in the sites and party it up!! Well, first I have a few cars standing in my way by the name of rush hour traffic! I am happy to report that my shiny new top did a kick a$$ job on the highway. Yeah, I think it's a little louder the OEM, but at this point I'm used to it and it's starting to sound quiet to me! Maybe it just had to snug down into place and now it's all good! Anyways, I follow the NAV thinking that I'm heading into down town... Noooot exactly. Try more on the outskirts of Richmond. On the plus side, all the Waffle Houses I've every wanted to check out are here! I think there's actually one every couple miles. I'm not doggin' waffle house, I like their eats, but I didn't know the waffle market was this strong!! The pic a few days ago is from this area, you know, the one that I found the hunting pack of Busch beer? Yeah, that's where I'm @! Anyways, long story short, I get there and we catch up over a bite to eat. "Hey, how's so and so doing? OMG... prego? What? Who got fat? Who moved away?" the usual stuff followed by a few really silly drinkin games. Have you ever played MTV the drinking game? It's easy, any time anyone is topless or in a bikini... Drink!! Ok, now you try it!!

Day 2 (back to top)

Still with me? I hope so, b/c we are just getting started!!! In walks Thursday with a mean hangover... I'd give it a 2-3 star. Ok, so not that mean, I can function just fine, but during the day, I'm really not feeling going out. I'm just not! But surprise, surprise, a few phone calls and texts later, here I go. I hit the Pre-Game today dressed in just party clothes b/c my effing ankle is STILL NOT BETTER!! Ugh. I might as well socialize instead! The pregame was a quiet spot with light Irish music, decent little snacks and a couple pints. We have a dozen, maybe 20 or so people. Good folks good talk, but it's time to moooove on!! Due to our remote location (well, I think that's what it is) the crowd is not as insane as I had imagined it being. Only 160 or so for the Thursday before RDR, yes I know that most hashes around the country don't see those kind of numbers even at AGM's. Well, what ev. The weather is ideal, clear sky's not too humid, and the crowd is great. The evening is going along swimmingly until disaster strikes!! My blackberry is locked, and my alt key won't work!?!?!? OMG!!!!!!!! I won't go into details, but rest assured I got it working and we hoof it on to the end. A nice circle, a decent naming, and a closing song. At this point I'm thinking, ok, it's been a night. I'll just go inside say my hello's and take off to prepare for the weekend...

You guessed it... Wrong! We go in and have a few rounds, end up dancin a little bit, having some good conversation and next thing I know, the bar is closed. What? Closed? Me thinks not! So, we all pile into cabs to the next spot. Time to take on Adam's Morgan! The Jello shots are abundant, the beer flows freely, and I start singing country with some random ladies on the machine! Wow... good times take two! And wouldn't you know it, it's time for this bar to close too. We're not done yet!!! So the group of us piles into yet another cab and takes off for my place!! This night needs a little Guitar Hero and a few more rounds. Well, there musta been sleeping gas or something in that cab b/c we all pile into my place, and no one even cracks a beer. I think I ate one hot pocket, and everyone passed out. Light weights! Well, everyone else is doing it… night!

Day 3 (back to top)

Good Friday morning Campers!! It's a shiny hang over day... wait... Who the hell are you? Turns out some out of town hashers ended up with our crew and our bar closing adventures last night. Ha!! Been quite some time since I woke up with people I didn't know at my place!! Anyways, all good folks that just needed a place to crash. So, tidy up the place and we all pile into the Jeep to drop everyone off. Oh yeah, did I mention that I took Thursday & Friday off? Yeah, totally did! I was hoping to sleep in more, buuuut guess that wasn't in the cards. Anyways, time to get ready for the evening party!! The plan is to start off at a pool party around 5ish (others are starting at like noon, but I know better then that!), then head out to the bars for some birthday celebrations. Ok, good plan! I hit the beer store and stage my booze up at the next party so that I don't have to carry it & grab an air mattress to keep at my place for the weekend for a buddy of mine that was supposed to be crashing in the spare bed room.

After running a few errands, I have time to lay on the couch for a while to try to recover from last night a little more which I take advantage of. What I do forget to do, like an idiot, is eat any breakfast or lunch for that matter. No prob, I'll get a bite soon! Right? So, a buddy of mine stops by later in the afternoon so that we can roll to the party together. Let's start the day with some Guitar Hero and a few rounds until it's time to go. (Ok, did I remember to eat before I left for the party? Nooooope!)

We arrive around 5ish as planned to find the party in full swing… There's snacks on the grill, beers in the coolers, music on the deck, people having a great time in the pool... I think that guy is even dry humping an inflatable whale?? I want to be shocked, but I'm really not... Isn't dry humping an inflatable whale a metaphor of some sorts? We shant go there! Ok, a smart me at this point would make a bee line for the food. Nooooope, we keep the party going with a few more rounds and some more socializing and meeting a good handful of out of town hashers. The imbibing goes into the evening and as dusk settles, we all start heading for the bar to start our infamous birthday crawl for a couple of folks that were with this group.

Bar 1 - Murphy's!! We drink, carry on, sing songs, drink some more… notice the blatant absence of eating. Good job genius!! As you might all imagine, I've had a couple rounds by this point and was egged into some Car Bombs with a table full of visitors. Now, I can tell you that I did make it home safe, but I did not make it to another bar so there will be no "Bar 2" paragraph - that woulda been Flying Fish (love that place!!). Lesson learned today... if you are gonna stay out boozing all day… EAT SOMETHING!!!

Day 4 (back to top)

And now... The maaaaaaaaaaaain event! I woke up early dazed, confused, disoriented and with a patchy memory. That sort of thing happens after 3 straight days of heavy drinking ya know? I gather my costume and accessories for the day and catch a ride over to Balston to start getting ready with some good friends that are also helping with sign in. Wait a minute, what's this? You don't want to wear the outfit I gave you to wear?!?! Fine! I'll wear it myself and save the costume for another day! So, we are all ready to go in Red EVERYTHING!!! Hair? Red! Dresses? Red! Thigh Highs? Red!! O... I did mention this is the Red Dress Run, didn't? So we hop a cab, and get on over early to start setting up. After the initial cluster of getting everything sorted out, sign in went quite smoothly. They kept bringing us beers and mimosa's the entire time we were there, so a few of us started having our own little mini dance party right there at registration desk in between people coming in. It gets a little hectic at times, but I really enjoyed sign in. It was great seeing everyone when they had just put on all their dresses before too much partying tore them up!! Well, 550 people later, sign in is closed and we head up stairs in the bar to a sea of red!! It's impressive and everyone seems to be having a great time!! 3 bars are flowing bottomless beer for 8 or so hours, so the party gets started right!!

Time for trail, and out we all pour outside the bar for quite possibly the most difficult to control circle ever. I can only imagine!! There are some costume contests out there, I get pushed into circle, but with the fierce competition of F****o in a red nightie... I couldn't even compare!! Like I said, some of us go balls to the wall for these events!! Post circle, the pack takes off. Yeah, my ankle hurts, but eff it! I'm running anyway! We all take the usual lemming route, and I'm usually with 'em. But for a change, I sniff out trail in a diff direction!!

Now, I'm not a strong runner, so for me to be an FRB is a huuuuuge deal. Kind of a bit of a high seeing the rest of the pack bearing down on me. Well, depending on how you look at it… 300+ people in red dresses coming at you could be a bad thing!! Anyways, we are running through not my favorite area of DC, but the residents are cheering and laughing and waving us all on! I push my self much harder then usual and when I finally get to the BC, I am beat tired and breathing heavy. Did I mention I wasn't much of a runner? Yeah, I'm not! I won't delve into any details, but I will say that the check was at a Sex Club in SW DC and was very interesting.

I leave the check with the organizers of this event, and since they have to get there first, we hop a cab and beat everyone back.. But just barely!! Fast a$$ bastards!!! Lucky us, we can bee line it thru the chow line before it gets soooooo insanely long that it's not even funny!! I'm talkin down the hall, down the stairs, around the corner… yeah, it was bad!! Well, post food, the stupid comes back out!! There is dancing to the killer sound system in this place, the 3 bars are pouring non stop, and everyone is having a blast!! There are sooo many people that I want to talk to and haven't seen in a long time that I can barely stay still at one place till I take off for the next!!

it's already 8ish?!?! Wow!! Where did the day go? Well, no worries, on to the after party!! The after party is in a friends house with 50-80 of his new closest friends!! I, being the party genius that I am, stake out one of the 4 chairs in the entire house and grab it for myself!! It's out side on a clear night, and it's just great catching up with everyone over a couple pints. Whenever someone was heading towards the beer, we'd stick our mugs out for a refill. Hey, I'd do it for you guys if the situation was reversed!! Due to lack of seating, many people sat on each others laps so there was no shortage of body heat!! Also, as he does every year he made the most amazing smoked port ever!!! He had 40lbs of the stuff and it was gone in NO TIME!!! Soooooo tasty! And time flies again… the kegs are floated, the party is winding down.

Clearly not finished with this long party day, a couple of us hit the U street strip in search of food and or beer. Ben's Chili Bowl was our first choice, but after we all emptied our pockets and found ZERO cash… we had to move on to another spot. I'm not sure I recall the name of it, but we all had some cheese steaks and traded stories of how the days festivities went down, the strip flip cup games, and all the silliness we'd seen. After some snacks, we catch the train and everyone heads their own way for some much needed R & R. What a great ending to a great day!

Day 5 (back to top)

Imagine being sound asleep after days and days of partying when all of a sudden… your cell goes off!! Ring Ring!! Ugh! Well, it's noonish, I guess time to get up and clean all the red costume off of me!! Hitting the shower is not only much needed, it's fairly amusing as I'm watching the red dye wash off me! It's turning the shampoo suds red, turning the soap red... Wow... persistent stuff. After only 3 shampoo's, it seems to be mostly out. Time to head over and meet up with some folks for a bite of breakfast before going directly into FULL TIME recovery mode!!

Hitting the Silver diner for brunch is just what the doctor ordered. The food is excellent (after the long line to get a table), our server is pretty good too. Recapping over the past few days again is great fun too not to mention hearing about Sweet Tea Infused Vodka… I must try it!! But the highlight is the 60 minutes of baggage jokes going around the table! I'm not sure how we got on this tangent, but damn if it wasn't funny.

Damn... How the hell are you able to even walk? You know, with all that baggage you are carrying!!

Day 6 (back to top)

Monday... is ALSO a day of rest this weekend!! A day filled with Super Mario Galaxy, cleaning out my Tivo, much time spent on the couch recovering, and a glass of water soooo big, it has no business being just one glass!! Oh yeah, and finished off by weekly Chinese food = the recipe for recovery!

Nutrition Steps...

This morning finds me with a nice tall cup (I really prefer eating cereal out of a cup, makes it easier to drink the milk I'm done) of Whole Grain Total as pictured here on the right. Ok, I know it's supposed to be good for me. Start your day off with a healthy breakfast blah blah blah... The fiber and vitamins.... 100% of your daily... Yeah, I get it. But does it have to taste like cardboard? Yuk! Well, it is good for me. Any suggestions for my next healthy breakfast cereal??

Ok, bad idea in the making!

Just to clear this post up, this is what I was watching someone take at the bar. NOT me. Either way, it just doesn't seem like a great idea to take a pill cocktail and wash it down with a beer chased with an Irish Car Bomb. I mean, I'm not doctor, but wow...

The perks of hangin out in the boonies.... I think the last time I gassed up in the city it was approx $3.70 for cheap stuff! Like these prices much much betta!

bout Damn Time!

Since I moved here, I've found my weight and body shape fluctuating greatly. Sometimes dropping muscle increasing fat, sometimes increasing fat and dropping muscle... basically, all over the place! Factors have included moving from manual labor into an office job (the worst place to try to be in shape in the history of time!), dating someone, recovering from dating someone, partying waaaaaaaaaaaay too much, a happy hour or 5!! Anyways, you get the idea... I eat poorly, drink, and don't get nearly enough exercise.

Ok, tough talk Nancy boy... what now? Well, it goes in several different lines of attack. First, as you might have read, I bought myself a bike to sub in for local trips rather then driving. Think going to the store, or to the gym, or going to get a hair cut, that sort of thing. It's not far, but it's more exercise then just jumping in my Jeep and going. Next, I'm walking everywhere. To work, going out, you name it. I don't even use a tank of gas every month anymore unless I have to drive out of town.

So the plan is to work towards everyday fitness, I'm hitting the gym... Let's talk nutrition. Am I going to quit going out drinking or stop partying? Not gonna happen!! But perhaps instead of beer, go liquor for less empty calories. Basically, little steps to a goal on the horizons. Oh, and in case all of that doesn't work, I've found a trainer the size of Shrek(w/o the belly) to give me a little extra motivation!!! Let's see if I can undo all the damage since I moved here. Wish me luck!

Metro Time

This is another one of my fav metro spots, on the yellow line north bound over the Potomac. For some reason, I find riding the train next to this rusty old bridge very relaxing. There are boats in the distance almost constantly... You can see some of the monuments depending on the side of the train you are on. And during rush hour, the train usually stops or slows down right here. They say it's b/c of train delays, I say they just want to mellow out their riders with this view. The view is nice day or night with everything lit up.

Door Jam

I started off yesterday evening getting a quick happy hour bite to eat at McFadden's, which is really a wicked cheap spot for happy hour. I had a club wrap with fries, bought a few beers for my buddies and my tab was still only around $12 or so!! That's what I'm talkin about, no more of those $100 happy hours, that's just ridiculous!

As you may well have figured out by now, Thursday is a hashing day so off we go for some trail. This will be the first time I've tried to run on pavement since I busted up my ankle at the monsoon AGM a few weeks ago... is it time? Well, as it turns out it is not!! Running half, getting lost and switching to the walk was the best option for me on this one. As we get to the ending circle, DHS is right behind us. They are very cool about everything, but we still gotta get out of there. Well, lookin like an early night so far, right? Wrong!! We get to The Science Club which I think is a really cool 4 story restaurant/bar in the city. They are playing some great island or reggae music as soon as we walk in and it just really seems to match the feel of the entire evening. The club itself seems very nice and has an upscale feel to it. What are we doing here? Ha! No, seriously, I'm just staying for one round!
Sooo... that one round turned into a couple and some shots and some good times!! I mighta kinda sorta missed the train. Ooops. O well, it happens. A friend of mine wasn't having drinks like the rest of us and happened to have his car nearby... Score!! Let's take it to the house and play some guitar hero, eat lean pockets, & be merry!!

I get to the outside door to my building... turn the key in the lock... and nothing. huh? What? This is the key I used to lock this door. One more try. The door handle is jiggling but nothing is happening. WTF? Who dead bolted the damn door on me?!?! I call my neighbor.. nothin. I call again. Grrrrrrrr. I give it a good solid kick.... Thfwhack!! Surprisingly... nothing. Grrrr..... So the confusion goes on for a few minutes then we start looking for ways to do a little B&E on the house. One guy is throwing pebbles at our neighbors window to see if she'll come down to let us in, another guy is mercilessly beating on the door... well, it would seem all of these strategies came to fruition as my neighbor comes down stairs to find out what all the racket is and let us in.

It appears that our combined assault on the front door has incapacitated a portion of it... namely the deadbolt and the door knob. Crap! Somehow, we are able to work the door to get in but those two items have officially had it. Well, that's not stopping me from some lean pockets and some hang out time with my peeps. Guitar hero here we come!!

Fast forward to this morning... did you know that Lowe's opens at 6am?!?! I had no clue, but I was over there at 730ish getting a new door lock combo and some keys cut. Next, an hour or so of installing some new door locks and it's finally time to catch a shower and head to work. Wow... what a night! Other then the damn door, gooooood times!!

Generic Taunt?

I sent this for an upcoming competetive scavanger hunt we are having soon and I just wanted to share.. Sooooo funny!! Now, I need to disclose that this is a mock up of a generic sports team taunt email that's on the web. I've adjusted it a little, but I started with a template. Enjoy!!

T3's Team... As you know, the game is coming up in a few weeks. I'm sure you are as excited for it as I am, as our teams are rivals and have been for quite some time. Your confidence in your team is high, but rest assured, you will suffer humiliation when my team defeats your team mercilessly.

On numerous occasions, you have expressed the conviction that your team will be victorious. I must admit that every time I hear you make this proclamation, I react with both laughter and disbelief. "Wanker!" I say to myself with laughter. "What the fcuk?!" I say to myself in disbelief. How could you believe that your team could beat my team? It is clear that yours is inferior in every way.

When the contest begins, the members of your team will be treated as though they are inconsequential. It will be remarkably easy for my team to accumulate more points and consume much more beer than yours. There are many reasons for this, starting with the inferior physical attributes of your team members. Strength, speed, drinking
ability, and stamina are just a few of the qualities that your team lacks. My team, on the other hand, have these traits in abundance!

I would not be a bit surprised if the individuals on your team were sexually attracted to members of their own gender. That is how ineffective they are on the field of battle.

If you need another reason why my team is superior, look no further than the supporters for both our two sides. Not only are the supporters of my team more spirited, but they are also more intelligent and of finer breeding than you and the rest of your ilk. In addition, the female supporters for my team possess more attractive countenances and figures than yours. Some of the women from my side that I have observed could make a living by posing for pictures for major men's magazines such as Maxim, GQ, & Playboy. The women who cheer for your team, I'm afraid, are far too unattractive to do so. I believe the term 'butterface' has been used in reference to your female supporters.

Do you still doubt that your team is inferior to mine? Just look at our teams' respective histories. In the past, we have defeated you on any number of occasions in a variety of events. Granted, there were times when your team beat my team in flip cup or beer pong, but those were lucky flukes and few and far between!!

The day of the game will soon be at hand!! And no matter how hard you pray to a higher power or how many hash necklaces or knee high socks you wear in support of your team... Your will be defeated!! We will win and you will lose. This is your fate!!

Prepare for humiliation. It shall be upon you at the designated hour!
