News and notes from Reston (tm).

Happy Blogiversary, or whatever, to us, plus a children's treasury of hilarious Google search terms

Well, it's been a heck of a year since our first heartfelt post, and we'd like to thank the tens of you who visit the site regularly to get the latest news about Bratz-hating Oakton parents, our tolerant neighbors to the west, or the awesome long-foreshadowed yet still somehow imminent demise of our beloved Macaroni Grill. Mostly, we'd like to thank the words "mauve" and "awesome," because it if weren't for them, we'd actually have to learn how to write.

We've also learned what you, the folks who come to this site after Googling some vital fact about life in Reston, are really looking for. Below, some of our favorite search terms that led folks to this humble site in the past year:

  • Lake Anne hispanics loitering
  • Should I move to Reston
  • Reston singles (Ed. Note: We found them. Don't bother looking.)
  • Robert E. Simon dies
  • Free ice cream
  • Reston expensive
  • Reston macaroni grill closing
  • car towed away from Reston Town Center
Yes, it's been a heck of a year, and we're proud to share a little slice of life from the 37th best place to live in the U.S. of A. After all, you can't spell "fundamental restrictions to land usage and homeowner covenants" without the letters F-U-N, right?

Ahem. Anyhoo, as we look forward to another year of mocking ridiculous regulations and the vague possibility of mass transit possibly coming here someday, we'll leave you with just one word:


What else did you expect?


  1. I love your blog and snarky commentary. Please keep up the good work!

  2. Congrats on your one year anniversary!
