Today’s Express had an article about an upcoming mini-baby-boom in DC:

Outside the white December snow piled higher. […] They grew restless.

They looked at each other. And then they – well, you know.

“Once a day,” [she] admitted. “Twice a day,” [he] interjected.

(Yes, I was a bit surprised to read this while eating my morning bagel!)

Overheard while crossing a busy street today: “The safest way to cross the street is get behind a big guy – like him – ’cause he’ll absorb all the impact if a car crashes.”

Ate a great crab cake at the popular Baltimore restaurant Mama’s on the Half Shell. Very busy on Sundays. Lunch for two runs about $35.

I love going up in towers. Here’s a list of some I’ve visited:

And, I hope to visit the Washington Monument soon…

Here’s a video that shows the Scott Monument’s tight stairway:

The Breadline restaurant has excellent bread, as you’d expect. Good veggie pizza and lentil salad, too. Lunch for two costs about $20.

Fridge report

My local Safeway opened this morning after being closed two days due to this snowy weather. Good thing, ’cause my fridge was completely empty. They were all out of milk and eggs, and were running low on cookies. Kudos for having all check-stands open for once.

Note: there might be a baby boom in DC come November…

Kabob Bazaar (located across from the Clarendon Metro stop) serves a great kabob kubideh. I had it with rice, and hummus on the side. Their hot tea, served in a glass, is also great. Worth a visit if you like middle eastern food or Persian food. Dinner for two costs about $30 (ex. wine, tip).
