A trip to the zoo

I went to the National Zoo this week to take some pictures of animals. I ended up taking lots of pictures of bugs. I seem to be developing a bug problem.

At the zoo there were stinky things, and loud things, and smelly things, and animals too!

Here are some bugs.

I'm a Crafty Bastard

This may not sound like much to those of you not in the DC metro area, but Crafty Bastards is a rather big deal. It is DC's largest annual indie craft show. This year there were around 480 applicants, and I was one of the 120 chosen. I'm psyched, and I cant wait to start getting my craft on!

Here are the Photos I applied with. It will give you an idea of what I am planning to bring with me. WOO HOO!

There will also be some surprises, but you are going to have to wait to see those!

Ugh. Really?

I got back on the online dating bandwagon.

I've met a very lovely fellow, and we've gone on a few rather enjoyable dates. In general I think he is quite charming, and very intelligent (and I have no idea if he reads my blog...)

Since I have paid up through the next 60 days I feel like I shouldn't put all my metaphorical eggs in one basket, so I've been checking my eHarmony inbox when people send me a request to communicate. This afternoon I finally sat down to weed through it and see who has been checking me out.

I don't care what anyone says, it's a scary thing to date on the Internet.

The number of people who misrepresent rather obvious details about their lives is staggering. If you say you are 5-10" and I meet you and you are eye level with my boobs -you are not 5-10". If you say you are 32 and you post a picture of you and your daughter, and she is my age- you are not 32(also if you have that many crows feet at 32, go to a dermatologist). If the only tid-bit of personal information you are able to give me about your life is that you liked The DaVinci Code(barf), scored !@#$ on the Myers-Briggs, and make 145k a year, I'm sure there is some girl out there for you, but I'll be damned if I know who she is.

it's a jungle out there, and I'm not sure I have enough bug spray.

On the upside, I'm having a great time getting to know this non-scary guy I met online, so it can't be all bad....

A very Large Bug

I went picture hunting with a friend today around Eastern Market in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of DC. This is the very large bug I found. I thought he was rather handsome, so I took some pictures of him.
