Giant spiders, eyeball-tinis: D.C's blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. Not the brightest or sunniest of days, but we've definitely been through worse -- so no complaints here. (I'll save those for the days of endless rain sure to come.) Halloween is less than a week away, so it should come as no surprise that the blogsphere is filled with Oct. 31-themed posts. I usually cringe at the sight of spiders -- but the ones spotted on Capitol Hill by Famous D.C. are okay with me. The drug lab bust in a freshman dorm at Georgetown University is the talk of the campus Monday (the three suspects are in court Monday) -- but Georgetown Metropolitan points out that this isn't the first time Georgetown students have been caught in a drug raid.

No cooks were injured during Macheesmo’s annual "Deep Fry" party -- but there are pictures galore of items floating in hot oil. What kind of items? Strawberries, ribs, pickles, Oreo cookies ... you get the idea.

It sounds like a headline out of News of the World – “Giant spiders take over Capitol Hill.” Better yet, Famous D.C. has photographic evidence of said invasion. Get your giant can of Raid.

And speaking of Halloween decorations, we like this Metro-themed jack-o'-lantern courtesy of Greater Greater Washington.

With news that police arrested three people after discovering a drug lab inside a freshman dorm room at Georgetown University early Sunday, Georgetown Metropolitan reaches back into the archives and unearths a clip from 1980, in which, yes, eight GU students and 10 other individuals were arrested for the sale of cocaine and LSD. A pound and a half of cocaine and 30 tabs of LSD were seized during the raid. Unlike Sunday’s incident, this one happened at an off-campus house on Foxhall Road.

The Brain Hemorrhage, the Black Widow, the Eye-Ball Tini -- Endless Simmer offers a list (with pictures) of 10 great Halloween-themed cocktails.

It’s been awhile since we’ve had one of these lately, so Happy 1st Blogiversary to the Prippy Handbook.

That's it for today. Thanks much for reading. Remember, if you're a blogger with a great blog or a friend of a blogger with a great blog, drop me a line and let me know. I'm always on the search for blogs to add to my RSS feed. Post a details below or send me an email at
