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?

  • The National Arboretum is lovely. Yesterday was the perfect day to run around in the grass, pose the kid with the flowers, splash in the fountains, and generally be glad spring has arrived.

  • Rant: Weather on Saturday

    Rave: Weather on Sunday!

  • Bear

    Rant: The Monday after vacation is the worst.

  • Rave: Nats swept the Brewers! Woo.

  • Rave: Passover!

  • Rave: Thank you to the folks who saved my vacation by carpooling with me from the Charlotte airport in the middle of the night. You were fun!

    Rant: Now vacation is over and I’m back to work.

  • Rave: Put up a mosaic tile back splash in our kitchen on sat and it looks awesome! and no we did not get the tiles from Home Depot.

  • Rant: The Capitals are the number one eastern seed in the playoffs, yet 106.7 FM insists on airing other sports instead? Really?

    • saf

      RANT: 106.7 has a CONTRACT to air the Nats, yet they keep pre-empting baseball with hockey. Winter is over. On to summer sports.

      • They also have exclusive FM rights to air the Caps playoff games.

        So you’re saying we should ignore the only successful local team in favor of one that has yet to ever participate in the post-season?

        • Screw the Caps. Go Nats.

          Not that this necessarily applies to Anonymous, but:
          Rant: Caps and/or Redskins fans who insist that the Nats will never have a fan base because the city is too transient. Umm, well then how is it that the Caps and Redskins have fan bases? Oh right, because they’ve been around for longer. Well…perhaps we’re just being a bit impatient/unrealistic then, eh?

  • Rave: Tomatoes, jalepeno, squash, onions and garlic are all planted! Looking forward to those and strawberries, blueberries and blackberries fresh from the garden! yum.

      If you find yourself with an excess, a friendly neighbor would be happy to take some off your hands 🙂

      Rave: Petworth Farmers’ Market time is approaching…

  • Rave: CapMac for lunch.

    Rant: Taking a post-lunch nap at work would probably be frowned upon.

  • Rant: Dim Sum! Complete waste of anyone’s time.
    Rave: Vincent Gray in handcuffs

  • rant: people not giving up their seats on the metro for elderly and disabled people or pregnant women.

    rave: its nice out at least.

  • DC Brau’s launch party was one of the best Friday nights I’ve had in this town. So cool to see people out supporting a new local business.

  • Emmaleigh504

    Rant: headache. It’s Monday, and I already feel like I was hit with a bus.

    Rave: enjoyed a night of bad TV last night
