I have a trip coming up to Washington D.C. I've never been there and I wanted to ask if I'll be OK walking from these hotels to F Street?
George Washington University Inn
Holiday Inn WASHINGTON-CENTRAL/WHITE HOUSE
Washington Plaza Hotel
The George Washington University is near a Metro station which I could take another metro station then walk a couple blocks. I have to be up early for a class so staying close is a necessity.
So if anyone has any recommendations or can tell me if any of these are a bad idea for any reason please let me know.
Thanks everyone!1 AnswerAir Travel7 years ago
It's for a class for work that's just a few blocks from the White House. I need to find a hotel that's reasonable. I'd also like to know if there's anything to do in the evenings, like museums, or do they close early. Is it better to pay a bit more and stay in D.C or should I find a hotel in one of the states? I'll be going by myself for about a week.
Anything anyone can tell me or recommend would be greatly appreciated.1 AnswerWashington, D.C.7 years ago
Are there any books or techniques to train myself to think a little more before I speak, in other words....?
not to stick my foot in my mouth?
I'm not looking for anything on romantic relationships, just advice in general. I stuck my foot in my mouth today during a Q&A at work which we were asked as a group about the positives of our job. Although my answer was 100% truthful for me and my work it was at the same time inconsiderate and may offended others due to job uncertainties. My answer also brought immediate attention to myself that made me feel really uncomfortable.
Does anyone have any advice, techniques or books they can recommend besides just not doing it again? Something to practice or teach myself the proper etiquette so I subconsciously take greater consideration before speaking? Needless to say I'm embarrassed and all around feel bad that I probably offended people.
Thanks in advance.1 AnswerEtiquette7 years ago
You wouldn't age. You'd get to relive the funniest moments of your life over and over again without tiring. What's wrong with that? Is that Hell or eternal bliss?
For the sake of the question forget about characters such as Kenny from South Park. Think of characters that are practically care free like Peter Griffin, Dennis the Menace or Garfield.
There's no right or wrong answer here. If I can't decide on the "best answer" (which I don't know that is yet) I'll let this question go to a community vote.3 AnswersComics & Animation1 decade ago
Is asking a woman for a second date in a voice mail a turn off to women? (25-35 years olds answer please)?
I had a date with this woman on Monday. We met online so this was the first actual face to face meeting. At the end of the first date she said she had fun and we would speak again. On Tuesday I sent her a couple of text messages that she responded to. I liked her enough that I wanted to try for a second date so I called her on Wednesday and I left a voice message asking if she'd like to meet again. In my voice message I asked her if she would be interested in going to this restaurant. I have not heard back.
My question is was it completely the wrong thing to do to ask for the second date via a voice message? If so since we only met once what kind of message should I have left for her asking her to call me back?
I'm not obsessing over this woman, but I am curious with not knowing if my actions/approach was somehow a turnoff so not to repeat my failures in future encounters with women? (Obviously, I don't date enough which is why I am doing the online dating thing and asking here.)4 AnswersSingles & Dating1 decade ago
I want to understand the process involved in friend suggestions on Facebook. Recently I joined Facebook and my friend said he was going to suggest a bunch of friends to me. I noticed that I am getting email notices trickling in stating so-and-so has added me to their Facebook account, but we need you to first confirm that you know the person.
So does Facebook first send an email to the person who is being suggested asking them if they want to add me? Then depending on their action I will get an email if I was added? In other words, my friend Joe suggests friends for me, one of them named Bob. Will Bob have to first approve the suggestion by adding me to his friends list before I get any notification?
I am a bit concerned if these suggested friends are not approving the suggestion first, because and I don't want to become Facebook friends with just acquaintances or people I barely know without their prior approval. I'm OK with making new friends with most of these people, but I just want to be aware if they have any say in the suggestion process. If they don't, that may change my mind before accepting them.1 AnswerFacebook1 decade ago
I had 2 wisdom teeth pulled today and for late dinner I decided to have macaroni and cheese, thinking it's soft food. I got a couple large pieces stuck in the hole, but was able to pull them out with a tooth pick. I thought earlier I saw something white which I was thinking may have been macaroni that I could never get out.
Tomorrow I'm suppose to start using warm salt water to rinse my mouth. Whether I was suppose to or not I used regular water a couple of times lightly to clean my mouth. This didn't appear to remove the foot particle.
My questions are:
1) Will the salt in the salt water dissolve any pieces in the hole?
2) If not how worried do I have to be about macaroni being stuck?
3) Will he gum heal from the bottom or does it heal from all sides? In other words will the food get pushed up from the bottom? (This tooth was way in the back and at an angle).

So I went out with this girl on Friday. I'm going to be honest after talking for her with 3 hours, and mainly for our love of baseball, I'm not exactly sure what she thinks of me.
I have been busy Saturday and today up until this point so I haven't called or contacted her yet.
I know she had plans today so I am debating whether calling her today would make me look in considerate or a bad listener for not realizing she had plans. I was thinking of texting her, but I wasn't sure if that's too impersonal. I am off tomorrow due to the holiday and I know she's at least off of work as well, but not sure of her plans.
Should I call her tomorrow, which would be 3 days after the date or contact her tonight, maybe with a text to say I enjoyed meeting her and I hope to talk with her soon again?
BTW, I'm not trying to be suave by waiting 3 days to contact her it's just that I've been busy, which she knew I was going to be this weekend.
Thanks for all serious answers!5 AnswersSingles & Dating1 decade ago
Did you purchase a condo or town home? What price range did you get it for? I ask because I am getting reading to buy a place and I am deciding if I can get a town home or if I should go with a condo instead. Plus, I'm not sure about the mortgage calculators online so that is why I am asking the people who've already purchased.
Thanks!2 AnswersPersonal Finance1 decade ago
I am getting reading to purchase my first place. Over the years I have saved 100K for a down payment with money left over. I make roughly just under 37K a year gross. I project without taking into consideration monthly mortgage payments and home insurance that my other bills and monthly expenses would probably be around $877. That's based off of what others have paid and during the winter months when it's colder.
I have looked at mortgage calculators online and my head is spinning on what I can afford. I know a house of $150K would still leave me with money to put in the bank each month, which I believe I can get a house for that I saw today.
Maybe someone can give me an idea how much mortgage I can really afford so I avoid getting into the financial troubles that people are in now. I am single and I would be the only income. The places I've looked at have taxes usually around $3600. Obviously the lower the townhome the lower the taxes.
I know with the $150K example with expenses I would have left over close to $600 a month.

Do credit card companies and phone companies accept bank issued temporary checks? Do they give people any problems? My checks have my checking number on them so I don't think there would be an issue, but I wanted to see if others have had problems?1 AnswerOther - Business & Finance1 decade ago
Homeowners, when you pay off all your bills for a given month, including groceries, on average how much money do you have left over? Is it in the ballpark of $200, $300, $500, $1000 or $1500+,etc?
I ask because I am looking to purchase my first town home soon and I want to get a feel for how others are living.

In celebration of the 2008 season I thought it would be fun if fans were to share their memorable moments, impressions, etc. from the 2008 season. Let me point out I am a White Sox fan who's either watched or listened to over half of all the Cubs game this year. Despite their disappointing loss in the post season, I still consider this a great year for the Chicago Cubs and I know there are Cubs fans out there that would agree with me.
So share with us:
What made this year really stand out for you? Was there a defining moment in which you may have thought this is going to be a great year, or as famously stated throughout the year that this "could be the year?" What was your most enjoyable moment(s)? When did you really feel good about the 2008 Chicago Cubs team?
What were the most turbulent part(s) of the season for you, did you feel there even were any?
Was there a certain player that you really enjoyed seeing play all year? Was there a roster moved that really shocked you?
If you have links to photos or articles that define the 2008 Cubs season for you then feel free to share, but links or images are not necessary. I want to get everyone's impressions of what made this 2008 season a great season for yourself. This will be a sort of virtual scrapbook of everyone's impressions and memories from this past 2008 season.
This question will be put to a vote so tell your friends!!!!
PS To opposing team fans I respectively ask that you do not post if you're goal is to bash the 2008 Cubs. Yes, their winning season came to a sudden end during the first round of the post season, but despite that there are some enjoyable memories for the Chicago Cubs fans during this 2008 season.3 AnswersBaseball1 decade ago
In celebration of the 2008 season I thought it would be fun if we all shared our memorable moments, impressions, etc. of the 2008 team that went to the post season. Sure the White Sox didn't go all they way, but despite that this was still a very enjoyable year for me and I'm sure many fans feel the same way.
So tell us:
What made this year really stand out for you? Was there a defining moment? What was your most enjoyable moment(s)? When did you really feel good about this team?

Now that you've seen what the other Chicago team can do against your own I want to ask if you could grab someone from that other Chicago team for your own who would it be and why?
Minor league players are acceptable to list as long as they are part of the other team's system.
Also, I respectively ask that you only reply with an answer of a person you would like to grab from the other team. This is suppose to be fun and I don't want a list of people simply typing things like, "The other team sucks! I wouldn't want any of their players."9 AnswersBaseball1 decade ago
I am trying to get a Java program to run on a Linux machine. The program is actually meant for a Mac computer. I want to see if someone with Java experience can help me determine what is causing the program to stall. I was successful in getting it installed on my linux machine and to partially run.
The program is an interface to a database. I get the login screen to appear, but then once I enter my information and hit enter the rest of the program never shows, however, it does appear to connect in the background.
Here is the error when I launch the .jar file from the command screen:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: illegal component position

the store or site has to have no minimum order value and I do not care to put a company logo on them.

There seem to be a few choices again, but after the 80's and very early 90's the very idea of cartoons on Saturday morning seemed to have gone the way of the dinosaurs.
Now that were adults and should be watching all that important news stuff, do get up early and watch the news programs that replaced our beloved childhood cartoons on Saturday mornings?7 AnswersComics & Animation1 decade ago
