coming up on the 3 month mark of living and working up here in dc. summary of my life here:

I work M-F 730am-430pm managing a website, designing a new one, helping with various computer related things
I go swing dancing twice a week, one night of which includes lindy hop lessons
I play ultimate frisbee on the national mall most saturday afternoons
I started taking krav maga lessons (2-3 times a week) last week and am really enjoying it so far
I go see a movie or two every other weekend
I'm reading a ridiculous amount (everything after march) because of the commute time on the metro and bus/shuttle and in down time between work and other activities
I've also been to quite a number of concerts - Squirrel Nut Zippers, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Iron Maiden, Dropkick Murpheys and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Friday I'll be going to see the Cherry Poppin' Daddies. I might go see Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, Mos Def, and more this sunday. jethro tull & the young dubliner's in two weeks, and judas priest, testament & motorhead the next night. and I just heard that the who will be playing in DC on november 3rd. *splooge* favorite band ever! must. go. see.

i try to get out and wander the city occasionally. jon and british came up this past weekend and we and jon's sister went to a dc united game. it was only worth watching for about the last 20 minutes. dc united just didn't look like they were trying. and watching american soccer bores me, it's so stagnant compared to european and latin american soccer. after that we went and wandered georgetown and hit up a few bars. we had quite a fun time, though jon's sister lost a lot of her drink in the cab home. silly girl. i went and saw dark knight on sunday. great movie. ledger's joker was absolutely phenomenal.

in case you hadn't noticed, i'm linking to my other blog. if you want to make things simple so you don't have to check there for updates, you can add the livejournal stream i created
