Clearly a lack of D.C. landmarks

I was on the Web site today of one of my favorite restaurants in the city, Central by Michel Richard. (Stay with me here, this isn't a restaurant review, though I would give it a good one).

Anyway, as I was looking for some information, I noticed something odd -- this Washington, D.C. restaurant has, featured prominently all over it's site, the Statue of Liberty. You know, the one in NEW YORK CITY.

I guess Washington, D.C. doesn't have any recognizable landmarks? I mean, it's not like we have the White House. Or the Lincoln Memorial. Or the Washington Monument. Or the Capitol of the United States of America. Bummer that a restaurant in our city has no landmarks of its own to promote on its Web site.

This is seriously going to bug me until they fix it, but as there is no way to contact someone via the Web site, they probably won't ever know. Sigh.

I am an apple

OK, I admit to being one those people. You know, the type that takes every personality quiz known to man. "Which Jane Austen character are you?" "What color are you?" "Are you an introvert or an extrovert?"

Yadda yadda yadda

But the following quiz nailed my personality better than any other one I've ever taken.

For the record, before you take it yourself, I'll disclose that I am an "apple."


In the middle of the table is a round food tray with five kinds of
fruits on it. They are:

A. Apple
B. Banana
C. Strawberry
D. Peach
E. Orange

Which fruit will you choose? Please think VERY carefully and don't
rush into it. This is great, I was astounded! Your choice reveals a lot about you!

Test results: Please SCROLL DOWN

If you have chosen:

A. Apple: That means you are a person who loves to eat apples

B. Banana: That means you are a person who loves to eat bananas

C. Strawberry: That means you are a person who loves to eat

D. Peach: That means you are a person who loves to eat peaches

E. Orange : That means you are a person who loves to eat oranges

I hope you find fulfillment in this new insight about yourself. May it bring you peace and understanding, tranquility and all that other profound stuff.
