    You’re giving the tours?

    I’m just not sure I want to tour empty abodes in Velvet’s neck of the woods. I hear what goes on when no one is looking…

  3. Velvet

    Needtsza – I’ll be a “monitor” at one of the houses. There are 12 houses in total, it should be fun.

    Law-Rah – HA HA HA! No way man. The “Alta” is in Thomas Circle. I prefer to do those things in other neighborhoods, not in places where they know me!

  4. Washington Cube

    I don’t have anything to say about house tours, so I’ll just note I read “Dating Lab” in the Sunday Post magazine, and that poor woman was on the blind date from HELL. Texting during the meal, leaving her several times to …what did he say…tap one off? and really making phone calls. Total ZERO. Time for you to do a “things not to do on a first date” list, Velvet.

  5. Needtsza

    heh. I should go on the tour and see if I can figure out which is you. LOL
