Frederick native ‘jeddywq’ has a unique marketing methodology – “Please bid. If I have to list this again I’m moving the PS3 box in the photo,” his auction says.

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.
