[livejournal.com profile] ellen_fremedon and I have been talking for a while about putting together a large DC "Deathly Hallows" book release party, and it's time to start properly planning that. This will be a welcome-all-comers kind of thing, meant to bring all parts of the local Potter fandom together to celebrate the release of the last book.

So! By 'party' we really mean 'drinks!' and the idea is to find somewhere to get together earlier in the evening and then finish up with the book portion of the evening at Politics and Prose. In order to begin the planning, we ask you to use this post to do two things:

(1) Have an idea of where we should have drinks that's close to P&P? Leave it here.

(2) And if you think you'll want to join us, let me know here. You're not committing to anything too firmly; we just need to begin to get some sense of numbers before we can move forward.

Have something else to add? Please do so! Have any brilliant ideas? Leave them!



Yay Harry!

DCigans: Anyone interested in joining me for the Crafty Bastards street fair on Sunday?

Also, while we're here, these shoes are fantastic. ♥

Hellish, hellish, truly nightmarish traffic day - it took over an hour to travel 8 miles on the Beltway because some braintrust decided it would be a good idea to steal a car so crappy that it would randomly break down at 7:30 am. What *I* want to know is what kind of decent car thief is out driving the Beltway at that hour of the morning. I'd have thought that car thieves wouldn't be among the teeming masses of DC morning commuters - shows you what kind of criminal mastermind I'd be. My ass would be in bed at least until noon if I had such a flexible profession. I'd also steal a car that worked, though, so maybe I'd break even. At the very least, if I were going to sleep in my car, I'd do it someplace a bit less conspicuous, thanks.

Which reminds me, dear MoCo voters (and by my count there are 8 of us here! go us!), that county primaries are next week and OMG, can't we get us a purple line? Won't you go and vote, pretty please just for me, so I won't have to bitch about traffic any longer? Go here for info about where candidates stand on what I have taken to calling My Beautiful Purple Traffic Salvation.

In other news - I have no other news. The job is fantastic and I have to learn about something called AuthorWare (I don't even know what this is. There is a flowchart and it's a GUI so, you know, how hard can it be? right? anybody?) and the a/c unit in my office that I set on fire the first day has been replaced and I am getting ribbing from colleagues about my cushy corner office. Life is good, if very busy.

ETA: I lied, I have other news. It's not really my news, though - woxy.com will stop broadcasting a week from tomorrow. It's a pity to see it go - it's had an amazing run as an internet-only modern rock radio presence and I'll miss it terribly. Next week, M-F at 9 am, they'll be rebroadcasting their Modern Rock 500 from this year on their vintage channel, 100 songs per day. It should be a great way to end an era and as sad as I am to see it end, I feel very lucky to have enjoyed it while it lasted. Do tune in to say goodbye!

And once I move over to the other building, probably sometime in the spring, internet radio or streaming audio is all I'll have for music in my office - no iPods allowed. Can anyone recommend any other great internet radio sites? Anything that will let me customize content?
