Not for you – you already look great. DC’s schools, however, are about to open and could use some sprucing up. There’ll be a big community effort tomorrow to do last-minute work on the schools and- somewhat amazingly – you can still sign up. Work starts promptly at 8a (no word on if you’ll get detention if you’re tardy) and you’re out at 1p.

If you go, they list these things you might be called upon to do:

  • sweeping/washing the sidewalk
  • painting exterior doors
  • picking-up trash
  • planting flowers
  • trimming bushes
  • pulling weeds
  • laying mulch, etc.

More details are here.

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.
