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 week?

  • Rave: Three day weekend!
    Rant: On call . . .

    Rant: Daily muggings, assaults, stabbings, shootings, homicides
    Rant: DC’s broken DYRS, broken court system, broken crime prevention, underfunded MPD, inept council, inept mayoral office

    Rave: I have not yet been shot, stabbed, assaulted, robbed, killed

    Rant: The way things are going, it’s just a matter of time

    • But think of all the money you’ll get when you sue DYRS for losing track of a ward in their custody . . .

      • Rave: Class action suit! For Christ Sake Already! More than just a god awful embarrassment to mankind.

        Rant: Though apparently over-the-top-young-black-male-aggression seems to be in fashion for some for some time now, and it seems like it’s not going away any time soon no matter what anyone in the government or general citizenry decides to do.

  • Rave: My husband will be home in 48 hours from an overseas deployment.

    Rant: There is no rant!

  • Emmaleigh504

    Rant: Life

  • Rave: Got a new GPS, free! And it wasn’t even a Hunakkah present. No more getting lost while driving in Baltimore!

  • Rant – My new supervisor has Asperger’s Syndrome.
    Rave – She is not here today!

  • Rant: Neverending advertising and nonstop saccharin tv shows have made me incredibly sick of Christmas already and I don’t want to be.

  • Rant: Who knew labor would take so long!
    Rave: Our little guy will be here soon, I just have to have some patience!

  • Rave: Weekend! Tis the season of good movies (going to see Black Swan tonight!)

    Rant: Minor mistake on my part made my boss look stupid. Oops. Good thing she had already signed for my promotion!

  • Rant: Facebook
    Rave: Facebook

  • Rave: After being moderately crushed that my dream job was given to someone else with “more experience,” that someone else apparently turned out to not be so hot. One email asking if I was still interested, one follow-up interview, 24 hours and one offer letter later – the job is mine!

    Rave: Weekend plans include sleeping in, gardening (more bulbs to put in the ground), napping, and not much else.

    Rant: Still 18 business days of the current job left before I get to leave and not look back. Why can’t it be 2011 already?!

  • Rant: Congress..and the whole “Tax Cut” thing…jesus dems…its not that hard. I swear they are useless-there is a right way and a wrong way to frame this issue..and the dems have decided to do neither.

    Rave: solar panels.

    • Do you have solar panels because I would really like to talk with someone who has installed them and is using them. By all accounts Im not “green” but I cannot come up with a rational reason not to get them.

  • Rave: Free pass to the Miss Ann for the Parade of Lights Cruise. Party afterwards in Dupont.
