This ain’t no Washington Post peeps diorama, but peeptastic nonetheless.

National Geographic peeps contest!

The Nation is now recruiting participants:

KMM: “this would be fun to do!!!!!!”

The Twin: “i’d like to eat them too. maybe we can incorporate their new choco covered kind and take them to the MoMa as they are the essence of modernity.”

The Twins go to DC! Well, technically little J already lives there. The real reason for the trip was to try on bridesmaid dresses for the upcoming nuptials of Big Brother. Turns out, a bridal store like David’s Bridal was everything I dreamt it to be and more:

The worst part? We had to register our information since the bride didn’t have an account (got her dress elsewhere). Which means we inevitably are on 39473865 wedding mailing lists now, great! But on the bright side, the dresses were cute (& inexpensive), the wedding will be in Puerto Rico, and The Twin bought me a burrito afterward.

After the suburban scare known as Springfield, VA.. we headed off to Georgetown, where I was able to acquire my much-lusted after whale hat from Vineyard Vines!

First seen at the Head of the Charles last year, I had been on a mission to get one of my own. The VV store in Copley was giving them away to children last November (I was too mortified to ask for one), but finally I was able to procure one in Georgetown!

Afterwards, we headed back to The Twin’s abode in Columbia Heights, where there were presents for yours truly waiting:

Yes, that’s a WALL-E toothbrush, al paca figurine from Peru, and CHOCOLATE COVERED BACON!!

Next day: Nat’s game. Sorry to say to my beloved Bravos, Nationals Field is pretty much the nicest ballpark I’ve been to (although have not made it to the new Yankee Stadium). Even the recycling containers were awesome.

The best part? The Presidents race, of course. Like sausages except our fearless leaders and not in Milwaukee.

After the game, the Presidents were out and about in the stadium. I got to say hello to GW.

George really liked my new Dooney

And this is totally unrelated, but I really like this shirt:

Just to prove to all you naysayers, evidence of yours truly enjoying Tuck Winter Carnival. Southern girl in the snow! (Okay, it was cold).

Unfortunately (or fortunately for the BC kids), no pics will be posted from the 80’s party. Mostly cause we are trying to be as employable as possible. But here’s a nice non-descript overhead shot:

There is one thing to be said, though — Kimberdoodle was born to be an 80’s chick. Seriously. Also, Forever 21 has a frightenly large amount of neon and spandex.

Christmas break in Seattle!

Obligatory Niketown shot. I stop in probably twice a week. Hey, it’s right across the street from my bus stop! Totally valid excuse.

Pre! Technically more of an Oregon thing, but I’ll take it. Also upcoming: roadtrip to Portland for another swooshtastic day with my favorite Tarheel. Actually, technically he might be second, after Tyler Hansbrough.

Busy at work.. Celebrity Salvation Army bell ringing. Basketball legend Sheryl Swoopes and Storm mascot Doppler ring it in. Check out Swoopes’ kicks!

Dusting off 8 years of basketball rust and playing on the Sonics/Storm practice courts.

Who said anything about rain and overcast weather? Snowpacalypse in Seattle! Seattle-ites are worse than Atlantans!

Oh, and Sue Bird has one sweet ride.

Don’t call me chicken legs anymore! After demonstrating Hulk-like strengths doing squats at the gym, I’m now referred to as ‘Quadzilla’.

Lance Armstrong’s comeback.. possibly dumber than Favre’s.

We need to start churning out the iphone applications. I have ideas, I’m just an idiot. This is where you come in. You on board??

QOTD2: “‘My booty is stale.’ If I had Facebook, that would be my status.” -Kimlicious, in reference to her subpar tasting Pirate Booty snack

Also, I totally want a WALL-E. The twin was right: So happy, yet so heartwrenching.

August 22, 2008

Last day in the city!

Today’s agenda includes: run along the Hudson (in perfect weather), grand opening of the Nike Sportswear Flagship store in SoHo, NikeTown (need to exchange something, what a great excuse), the happiest of hours, and possibly Wall-E cause I still haven’t seen it. Almost all packed up.. hopefully the GPS won’t forsake me this time.

Back to $10 lunches, the BC shuttle bus and homework (and class in the evenings, no less). On the bright side.. my own bed, in unit laundry, Beacon Hill Athletic Club, and most importantly, being reunited with TiVo.

Just in time — Nike will be opening a Nike Sportswear Flagship store in SoHo this Friday. Hmm, any guesses whether I’ll be packing for Boston or checking out some new diggs?

Nike Sportswear announced the opening of 21 Mercer Street in New York City’s SoHo. It is the first Nike Sportswear-specific store of its kind. Opening August 22nd, the stand-alone shop will be the only location globally to carry the complete NSW collection and seasonal 21 Mercer products.
