This would be a good night for a big glass of dry red, but for now I’m switching between tea and seltzer with lime. ha.

Daryle’s DJing a wedding tonight, so I am at home making sure our drain doesn’t clog near the basement. Good times. The eye of the storm is supposed to pass over DC right around midnight. I hope Daryle will be home by then. He’s only a short drive away in Arlington. I don’t think I can stand another moment of NBC4. I’m up-to-date with the Outter Banks, Virginia, Delaware and NYC. For now, it’s me and Rob Bamberger’s Hot Jazz Saturday Night. How are you waiting out the storm?

Crank Radio – It comes with a built in flashlight and cell phone charger – he will thank you when he really needs it. $49.95
Black Soap – with lanolin and mineral salts from the island of La Toja, it sure get’s ya clean. $7.49

Swiss Army Blanket – This blanket will look so good folded with the cross side up at the bottom of a white duvet cover. (I’m dying for one myself). They can be pretty pricey, but you can also find vintage ones on eBay for cheap. $29.95-$298
Whiskey Rocks – (You’ll need to include a bottle of Maker’s Mark). Sort of like the black soap—it gets the job done, but doesn’t water it down. $22.50
Plaid shirt – For the behind the times dude in your life. There’s so many cute color combos to choose from. $41.99
