Random Reader Rant and/or Revel

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. I’ll open this thread every Monday and Friday. So anything good happen to you this weekend?

  • i think im falling in love 🙂

  • me too! but er not with christopher lol.

  • filthy lies… youve always been in love with me!

  • rave: my boyfriend drove up from fayetteville nc on Friday to surprise me when I thought i wouldn’t see him for 3 plus months

    rant: he really did surprise me and I had all kinds of weekend plans that included those comfy pants that you only wear when nobody will see you.

    rave: I really was happy to see him and to know hes willing to break the army’s rules to come see me on a whim.

  • Rant/Revel:
    Seeking a TV-less pub last night, went to The Wonderland. They brought in a TV for the game. At least they had the volume down and I was able to hear the live music there.
    Thought it was funny that on the sandwich board outside it read “Watch the game on one of our 18 TVs”. Guess they meant 18″ TV (there was only 1 TV).

  • Rant – Punks hanging in the back yard of next door foreclosure. Getting tired of hounding MPD and DCRA. MPD suspects is a stash drop site. Getting a web cam to catch the shits.

  • Rave – 60 degree weather in February!

    Rant – Christmas Trees are still clogging up my alley despite getting an email from DPW (at least two weeks ago) that they would be picked up in the next trash collection.

  • Rave: The weather!!! Fantastic! I’ve rolled up my sleeves and abandoned my tights…now just need an errand to run!

  • I think I want to break up with my GF of two+ years. She moved away for school and now that she’s gone I find myself really enjoying the freedom. She’s wonderful in many ways but this freedom has given me the chance to realize that we may not be perfect for each other. The weird thing is that I think that her being away has made the desire to stay together even stronger for her. Breaking up with her is going to kill her. I don’t know what to do… 🙁

  • Rave: What a fantastic Sunday we had! Was able to walk around for hours and hours.

    Rant: I am so overwhelmingly tired of hearing all these freakin’ talking heads screaming about every single thing Obama does. He’s acting like a “frat boy” for having a Super Bowl party? And if he didn’t have a party, he’d be accused of being elitist. Ugh.

  • Rave1: Went to the American History museum on Saturday and stumbled upon this great exhibit: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/02/01/AR2009020102032.html?hpid=artslot
    Rave2: Also saw Julia Child’s kitchen and learned that she was 6’2″ and had her countertops custom-made to be taller than average — hooray for tall women!
    Rant1: Had a lovely time, but came to the conclusion that I am NOT falling in love.
    oh well.
    Rant2: I collect unemployment statistics for a living. They’re depressing these days.

  • Rant: I’m under the weather and at work. 🙁

  • Anon–If you’re not feeling it anymore, then break up. In my experience no one ever does anyone any favors by staying in relationships they didn’t want to be in anymore. Good luck/

  • Rant: it’s Girl Scout Cookie Season again and I can’t have wheat or sugar!

    Rave: I still pre-ordered 14 boxes of the stuff from my neighbor!

  • Vonstallin

    Rant: 🙁
    My biker friend who got paralyzed 9 months ago Drilled me for not calling or seeing him. (I never drill anyone when im laid up in the hospital)

    Rant:2 🙁
    Went to Mystery Theater Dinner Saturday and the sh*t was A$$. Worst crap I’ve ever seen for $48 and standard hotel food.

    Rant: 3 🙁
    My back still hurts like hell from Yoga, but I think I might hit the gym tomorrow anyway.

    Rave: 🙂
    My back is good enough to walk without pain now. Now lets see how some whoopee works out.

    Rave:2 🙂
    Just moved into my new office and I love it. Window for the first time and a little more space, but now everything is far away.

    Rave:3 🙂
    Popeye’s have a $3,49 2 piece special. (this should be a rant since it will blow my diet out the box)

    More 2 come 🙂 🙁

  • Rave: I left my wallet at Commonwealth Gastropub last week after a tasty meal and not only did I get it back but no one raped my credit cards! Double rave!

  • Rant: I miss Thursday trivia. Too damn tired these days to stay up late during the week. So basically, I’m really quite old.

    Rave: My new favorite online activity is looking up the endings to newly released movies. I feel special. And it doesn’t ruin a thing to me.

    Rave again: I stopped biting my fingernails. They are very pretty, who knew.

    Rave again: I falling in love… with Parker Posey.

  • Everyone go shop at Trader Joe’s ASAP! I was just there and the cashier asked me what my zip code was — when I said 20010, she said “Yeah, that’s mine too. It would be nice if we had one of these in our neighborhood, wouldn’t it? That’s what the survey is for.” Which I took to mean that they are thinking about opening up a TJ’s in another part of DC and looking to see where their customer base lives. I don’t know how long they will be surveying customers, but if you want a TJ’s somewhere in POPville, it couldn’t hurt to head on down to Foggy Bottom and tell them where you live! (Sorry if I’m overly excited, but my cats like their cat food and the trek down to Foggy Bottom every other week kind of sucks. Ah, a girl can dream…)

  • Best Super Bowl Commercial Ever.

  • Whoo Whoo! Here comes the Pain Train!
