I'm sure you've seen it already, but just in case you haven't , 1UP released a sequel to their classic Child's Play article where they have kids play ancient games like Donkey Kong and Space Invaders. In the new Child's Play article, the kids play a bunch of games that I played as a kid, like Legend of Zelda, Defender and Galaga. Kind of makes me want to get my old Atari out and play some Joust or Crystal Castles.
I'm sure this one is actually Metro Center, the sign in the background even says so. Well, in a higher res version at least.
Last Thursday, I went into town to the DCist Happy Hour and hung out with the nice folks who run DCist. I took some pictures, and since I'm too lazy to put together a Simple Viewer gallery like I usually do, the rest of the photos will be after the jump.
Sign that a joke has run its course:
I saw a car with the license plate "MOR CWBL" on Route 7 in Tyson's Corner this evening.
A statement you do not want to hear just after you shake hands with a co-worker: "Sorry, I shouldn't have done that, I have pink eye."
I suppose it could have been worse, he could have said that he had ebola or smallpox. In any case, I just spent the past ten minutes removing a layer of skin from my hands.
This evening, it occurred to me that I've been updating this site for a year now, which is far longer than I thought I would ever go with it. As a one year celebration thing, here's a collected gallery of metro station photographs, which a few people have asked for recently.
A few odd and ends about the site:
1. The most visited pages are the photos from Hart and Melissa's wedding and a little rant about Christmas music I posted last year. The photos of Hart and Melissa get a ton of visits primarily because of people searching for Melissa McDermott, who as far as I can tell is some type of middle of the night broadcaster with CBS. As for those of you who are looking for WASH FM's All Christmas All the Time playlist, you've got the wrong place.
2. Busiest days of traffic overall are most likely when I first was linked to by DCist (thanks guys!) or when I posted a set of photos from Geno and KC's wedding.
