I was wrong

When a cow orker today sent me this link to the reader’s poll about the peep dioramas it took me all of three seconds to be certain which would win: The Rosslyn Station peeps, of course. Everyone loves hearing about themselves, and it doesn’t even have to be positive attention – when Jonathan Coulton appeared at Jammin Java and played “I hate LA” he commented that he got more requests for that song in California than anywhere else, and the most applause and excitement for it in – you guessed it – LA.

Well, turns out we’re not quite as big a bunch of self-absorbed bunch of media whores as LA. By 0.4%

Nope, we’re bigger pervs. The peeping peep is our big winner. The WaPo’s actual winner, it’s worth nothing, is 8th. Out of 22. And I’m at least a little bit right – the number 3 place is a full 8% behind the Rosslyn creation

Now, this is an ongoing poll so I suppose the final vote could change, but I’m assuming by now we’ve settled into our averages. Personally, I voted for the Reservoir Dogs diorama, but I’m still on a Tarontino-Grindhouse high.

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.
