I declare Eric Nuzum our official mascot

Not just because I keep linking to his stuff (the dude entertains me, what can I say?) or because he works for my radio station of choice, but because the heavens have aligned and shown him to be The [WLDC Blog] Chosen One.

But the best part: my office has a view of the capital.

Well, technically.

The picture above and to the right (click to enlarge) is the view out of my new office window. Look just to the left of the center of the photo. You’ll see a church steeple. Slightly to the left of that steeple is a pointy thing rising above a long flat roof.

That “pointy thing” is the Freedom Statue on top of the Capitol building.

Yep, the only part of the building that he can see is a part that, if you look at the  upper left corner of your browser window, or on my business cards, or our stationary, or our flickr icon… well, you get the picture. Lady Freedom is our adopted mascot and she’s just barely visible over the rooftops to Mr Nuzum. You’ll have to click the link above to see his picture of how the Lady just is barely visible – I couldn’t put it here. *cough*creative commons*cough*suggestion*cough*

Any of you have a just-barely-visible bit of the DC skyline visible to you from your workplace or home?

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.
