1) I see the Virginia Blog Carnival is up this week. Go check it out.
2) Also worth checking out, Virginia Centrist has a post up with his top 100 guitar solos of all time.
3) At a party this weekend, somehow my name came up (alcohol can make even someone boring like me interesting, I guess) and Tom Davisite Nick Meads told my cousin Noah Shussett he was a big fan of the blog.
Noah gave me this comment from the situation: "He seemed like a decent guy, however his red-state style was not nearly as exciting as my beer. If you are going to be a monkey, be a gorilla". Good advice there from Noah.
It's worth nothing that Nick attended the party as the date of one of the Beiter twins, a hot catch indeed in Northern Virginia circles.
4) As she noted here, I met up with Virginia Pundette this weekend, while she was in Arlington. No question about it, she's the best looking blogger in the Virginia blogosphere (actually better in person then the picture). We had a great conversation, and it was good to finally meet up. It didn't occur to me how young she was until we met up though.
UPDATE: 5) I forgot to do a story on my meeting with the Republitarian a few weeks ago. Yes, it's true that he makes his wife wear a burka, but other then that.... they seemed like two really cool and informed young people in the Valley. I really enjoyed meeting them, and Republitarian is moving back to a "Gold" level blog.
UPDATE: Virginia Pundette reports on our meeting.
