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 week?

I’ll take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted for PoP as best local blog in the City Paper’s ‘Best of’ competition. We took 2nd place this year. And thanks to all who sent congratulatory emails – I really appreciate it!

  • Rave:

    It’s Friday, Friday
    Gotta get down on Friday
    Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend
    Friday, Friday
    Gettin’ down on Friday
    Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend

    Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)
    Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)
    Fun, fun, fun, fun
    Lookin’ forward to the weekend

  • Raves: Sun. Spring. Rooftops. Balconies. Flower shoots. Adorable bicyclists. Busy bike lanes which remind me of Berlin and Seattle. PoP’s open forums — where sometimes things are discussed that no one else wants to discuss.

    Rants: Speeding drivers. Bored kids who harass. Life is fleeting.
