Well I tried another restaurant in DC tonight and it was a like dinner last night. Good food and slow service. Skewers, located in the Dupont Circle area of Washington, DC, is a middle eastern restaurant and they have wonderful food. I had the special stuffed chicken breast. It was stuffed with spinach, asparagus, feta cheese, and pine nuts. It was served with cous cous and beans.
The latte was wonderful, but is was a little cool. It could have been warmer, especially since it was quite cold outside. But as with the meal last night, the service was quite slow. It took a long time for dinner to be served and the waiter didn’t really come around in between the wait staff filling the water.
It was a good meal, but be prepared for a really slow meal. Sometimes a slow meal is good, but this was just too slow.
Sports Illustrated ran some great stories on from around the college campuses this week. The story “Campus Chronicles” looks at different stories from around college campuses. There are some great ones from this week including a fraternity that stole 10,000 copies of the school newspaper because it said something bad about them or at the University of Idaho where someone broke in and replaced the announcement loop with porn. Take a look.
I am in DC for work and decided to go check out the Christmas decorations at Union Station. It was decorated as well as I thought. This year they had a theme, Christmas in Norway. It was sponsored by SAS and had some interesting information on the country. I don’t get the display they had on penguins though.
I decided to go back to a restaurant that I have been to a couple times before, Thunder Grill. This is a southwest style restaurant that has pretty good food. But there is a problem, the service is less than desirable. It took forever for my food to be brought out and then had to ask for a desert menu and then for my check. They also did not keep my water glass filled, even though they kept asking if I wanted another beer.
The food is great, but if the service does not improve they will be in trouble.
I just want to send my condolences to the Kim family for their tragic loss. As a father of two young children, I don’t think I would have done anything different from him in heading out to try and find help for my family. Once again, my condolences to the Kim family. My families thoughts and prayers are with you.
I have been fighting a cold for a couple weeks. I am starting to feel better and will start to post more.
Once again, sorry for the long time in posting.
They are coming back.

A wonderful poem on partisanship written by Robert Wrigley, an English Professor at the University of Idaho and read on the Newshour with Jim Lehrer.
We will miss you Ed Bradley. It was always entertaining and educational to watch you interview some of the most influential people in the world and in turn became one of the most influential people in the world.
I always enjoyed your interviews. Muhammad Ali, Michael Jackson, Condoleezza Rice, and Michael Jordan to name a few. Especially when you covered our tradgedy here in Colorado.
We will miss you Ed Bradley. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
This is a must have if you are a Blackberry user on the Verizon Network.
The screen resolution is incredible and the speakerphone is a great add-on.
See my review on CNET.
When I last posted I thought that the Republicans would hold onto the Senate, but they didn’t. See the MSNBC article “Democrats win control of Senate“. It is interesting because the state has not declared a winner and they are still canvasing and their will probably be a recount.
If this holds, it will be an interesting two years. As I said in an earlier post, it will be interesting to see how the Democrats behave. If they try to exact revenge on the Republicans, I think they will be out of control of the House and Senate in two years.
With Rumsfeld leaving and a new Secretary of Defense coming on may dampen the nastiest of the likely upcoming hearings and questions.
It is certainly going to be a fun two years. Bring on the Presidential Election!
