Silver Spring translated: D.C. area blogs

By Lori Aratani
Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. If you haven't been outside yet -- YOU HAVE TO GO. Now. Really. It's lovely. But if you must linger inside, be sure to peruse the best of the D.C. area blogosphere, where there's always something entertaining.

You've got just a little over a week before the Oscar ceremony -- and if you're like me, you might have some catching up to do film-wise. French Twist, D.C. offers this guide to theaters around the D.C. area screening the Oscar contenders.

The Promenade. Hellsworth. Silver Spring Singular offers this primer on the lingo of Silver Spring.

For shopping with a bit of a twist, I Spy Things DC reports that the Temporium pop-up craft fair is opening Friday (Feb. 18) in Mount Pleasant. Never heard of a Temporium? It's essentially a temporary store that opens up to sell a variety of items. They've become popular attractions around D.C.

Interested in adopting an alpaca, goat or donkey? City Paper reports that the National Zoo is seeking homes for animals that will be displaced as a result of the closure of the Kid's Farm. Blame it on federal belt tightening.

New Columbia Heights posts this plea on behalf of a Georgetown grad student studying local online media in Columbia Heights. If you have a minute, you can help her out.

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