Changes at Pentagon Row mall

If you didn’t make it out yesterday to do some outdoor ice skating at the Pentagon Row rink you have missed your chance for the season. I’m a little bummed – this is the first winter since I’ve come here that I haven’t gone out and done a little skating. On the other hand, this Miami boy made his first snowman this year, so that makes up for it a bit.

My darling girlfriend pointed out an amusing contrast when we walked by the rink on Saturday. The rink was filled with parents of either gender and their little girls. However the little boys seemed entertained to climb in and out of the empty fountain. I’m sure the fact that there’s no admission fee and skate rental for this activity didn’t bother the parents at all. Who wants to bet that by next year Row management manages to find a way to monetize it?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
