Why do I love the WaPo so much? Because they seem to publish whatever I come up with on a fairly regular basis.

Example 1: someone on the WaPo Express website staff somehow thought my post on "Mormons in international relations" as a Googlenope to be worthy of publication. Why? It's not even vaguely DC-related.

Example 2: a common sense comment I made was picked for the "best of" list on the local shopping blog. (I know, I have an unimaginative screen name.)

Today's agenda, 'cause, you know, it's General Conference weekend and I like my talks on paper, not on video.
* buy pumpkins at Eastern Market
* buy a small pot at Frager's Hardware
* visit the National Museum of Women in the Arts
* see the drumming circle at Meridien Hill Park, affectionately known locally as Malcolm X Park

I had a cool "googlenope" just the other day. I wish I could remember what it was but I was very surprised to see that it yielded no hits. I think it's great that you get quoted in the WaPo so often :)

I wish I got paid each time I got into the paper!
