Why D.C. is the place to be!

Happy long 4th of July weekend, everyone! I celebrated in the time-honored tradition of staying home all day, doing nothing and interacting with no one. This making friends thing is tricky. Every once in a while I do have a social life, but apparently not on national holidays.

And speaking of what an absolute social effing butterfly I am, here's a question for you: I hesitate to even bring this up, because the idea of it is quite frankly terrifying to me, but I will be home during the second or third week of August, and would anyone be interested in doing a D.C.-based meet up of some sort? I promise I am only marginally more awkward in real-life than I am in blog-form. Also, taller.

By the way, if no one responds I am totally pulling this post. What, me, invite people to a party that no one shows up to? Not me, and you can't prove anything!

  1. You are absolutely the cutest in the world. And if it were anywhere near possible for me to be in or near D.C., I'd be there with bells on (not really) and hug you around the knees (really).

    PS. Lest anyone think the knee-hugging is really weird and awkward, let it be known that I'm MUCH shorter than Rachel and this would be a result, not a choice.

  3. I am jealous! Why do I have to live in the middle of a really far away and large state?

  4. And why do I have to live on a totally different continent?

    I'd so be there!!!!!!

    You still ROCK, Rachel! I've been a silent reader for a while, but man, you've saved me so many times with your posts. "why casual relationships can only lead to casualties"? - awesome. golden. and totally relatable. It's scary, in a way!

    And oh! The post you wrote a while back about the blogs anniversary? It was my 1 years anniversary with DoW as well! I've been an avid reader since I googled "dating+french guy+difficulties" (or something like that) and I've loved every minute of it. :)

  6. Wish I could come. But I live near Vancouver, so quite a long way away!

    I don't know why you seem to have such crap luck with boys. Clearly they're all idiots. Because it's obvious to me that you are awesome!

  10. I don't think it would be too weird for me to meet you. You, however, would probably think I'm batshit.

  16. Hell yeah! I even remember writing the following, "If I Could Buy Their Writing A Drink, I Would. It’s that [F]ucking (legato) Good."

    So ah, yeah. Bring on the awkward.

  17. Okay, living in Baltimore qualifies me for this meetup. And though I am fairly certain I will embarass the shit out of myself (I tend to be really quiet in real life at first which shocks people since I can ramble-write like nobody's business) I would love to meet up!
