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 long weekend?

Congrats to Spain on their World Cup victory.

  • I’m in that pic! And the guy with the vuvuzela is my roommate. His name is Juan. He’s from Spain.

    Something is wrong with commenting, I’m trying to fix ASAP, sorry about this!

  • rave: bachata music in the columbia heights square

    rant: bachata music in the columbia heights square.

    – i am big fan of latin music including bachata, but i cant stand song after song of bachata, would it kill these guys to play some salsa, cumbia, or merengue too?

    rave: the white boy dancing some excellent bachata.

  • Thank god I don’t have to hear any more VUVUZLEAS BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

  • RANT: Where can you go to enjoy a sporting event with a baby? I have not been able to find a solution.

    RANT: Wife and baby fall asleep watching World Cup final on TV at home. Awesome atmosphere….

  • Rave: World Cup is over so I won’t be this bored for another 4 years.

    Rave: World Cup is over.

  • FIFA owes me reimbursement for the ales consumed waiting for the Final to become a decent match.

  • man, that’s a great question.

    espn zone ( has it closed yet?)
    best buy
    biergarten haus
    cheesecake factory?

  • rave: FIOS installation on Wednesday. Glad to have the service in Columbia Heights finally. Anyone else getting FIOS?

  • How does the cost compare to Comcast, once the initial promo ends?

  • The promotions aren’t apples-to-apples, but the first six months of the FIOS package is about $5 more expensive compared to Comcast, but months 7-24 are about $5 cheaper (for Internetz and tv). Too lazy to do a channel comparison, etc.

    The big saver may be in the installation, it is completely free right now for FIOS.

    The caveat is that the pricing for FIOS after the two year promotional period are not yet available, so it is hard to say how it will ultimately price out.

    • so what’s better about FIOS? Picture quality or something? Is this the sort of thing that only makes a difference if you have the right tv and the right hookup?

    • Moot point for me now because I checked yesterday and according to the website, FIOS isn’t available in my part of CH (I’m near the Park View Rec Center).

  • Rave: Started new job today, so I can actually afford my apartment
    Rant: Hate my new job

  • Punk thugs shooting teenage tourist girl in the Virgin Islands. What is with this country? This fashion trend sucks.
