A sip of year-old eggnog: D.C.'s blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. Have been too afraid to venture outside, but I understand it's a cold, windy, hold-on-to-your-hat kind of day. The kind of day that makes lunch in the company cafeteria look pretty darn good. So what happens when you leave eggnog in the refrigerator for a year? Well, you might be surprised. The Bitten Word has a video of their tasting of a bottle of year-old eggnog. Not impressed by this morning's snow showers? While, neither was The Restonian.

The Restonian has already coined a nickname for this morning’s snow flurries. Meet “snowpiddleipse.”

The Penn Brangler writes about the launch of a new local blog, And The Autism Thing. Its author, Shielda Dyer, is autistic and has been keeping daily journals for almost a year on a href="http://theautismthing.blogspot.com/">what her life is like.

The results are in … from The Bitten Word’s weekend tasting of eggnog they’d aged for 12 months. The good news: Nobody ended up in the emergency room. The other good news: The above-mentioned nog was pretty darn good, but incredibly boozy. Here’s a hilarious video of the tasting.

Happy 2nd anniversary. The Georgetown Metropolitan celebrates the second anniversary of its launch of web-only publication. As part of the celebration, they’ll be looking back at the five biggest news stories of the year.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day. I'll be back tomorrow with more great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere.
