How about we… Jazz in the Garden, then a Nats game. Sangria + Strasburg = summer.
How about we… some apps, some Caps -- while they're still thriving -- and some good beer..
How about we… Get caffeinated/hydrated at Dean & DeLuca, tackle the C&O Canal on bicycle and then enjoy an indulgent lunch in Georgetown.
An awesome place I've visited:
Aix-en-Provence, France. But spending most of my life in the Golden State was pretty awesome, too.
My perfect Sunday:
Run. Coffee. Paper. Outdoors. Cook. Consume. Watch. (I'd settle for 4 out of 7 here).
The movie I've watched the most times:
Breaking Away. Still get pumped up rooting for the Cutters.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Youngest of nine children. California native thrust into the greater DC area a few years ago. Career journalist still gainfully employed in the industry. Two-time survivor of reconstructive knee surgery, still knuckleheaded enough to continue playing hoops.
My first concert / My dream concert:
The Clash/a Talking Heads/Clash twinbill
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Reams of useless sports trivia, JFK assassination theories, airline hubs nationwide.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Combine smarts, wit, and a fun-loving mentality with some degree of spontaneity.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Bogarting the wine.
What I would bring to show and tell:
A random collection of work-related lanyards. Would put the "Up in the Air" characters to shame.
I secretly want to be:
Voice-Over Guy for movie trailers.
An infatuation of mine:
Maggie Gyllenhaal. But I've got it under control.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Quit my job again, just to make sure. Buy a saxophone. Make sure my passport is updated. Switch to brand-name Greek yogurt.
