This reminds me of that great scene in Shallow Grave where they interview potential roommates. Hilarious! Do you make them take photos with you too?

HAHA! Only once, but that's because we decided to keep her on the spot (her best friend is my best friend's neighbor and we met at various "functions" over the years).

Our interviews are pretty relaxed compared to others. Back when I was looking, some houses would set up open house interviews. You'd wander through and when you were ready to be interviewed, you would do it with all the roommates around a table with all the other potentials staring you down while waiting.

Conne,
I'd definitely suggest visiting around Christmas time when there is snow on the ground. For as long as I've lived near DC and as much as I hate cold weather and snow, the area around The Mall is absolutely beautiful with a bit of snow and decorations.

Those are great photos. If I didn't live in DC I'd probably say that looks like a great place to live.

Even though I drive through DC several times a week I must say that the run down PA Ave is still majestic every time I see it:

I used to work at 8th & G SE, and my drive in would involve being on Penn headed toward the Capitol for a few blocks...

I concur. That view never got old. Even now, living in a high-rise in Silver Spring, it's kinda comforting to see the Washington monument on the horizon seven miles away.

Love these pics. The French ambassador gets one hell of a residence.

I blame it on the quadrillions of tourists getting in my way on the Metro on my way to work in the summer.
