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. But please no personal attacks. I’ll open this thread every morning at 10am.

  • Rant: Trick or Treat Carjackers in Petworth. What will they think of next.

    Rave: I am going to take my kids trick-o-treating in some other neighborhood, where thugs aren’t so pervasive.

    Rant: snow in October

    Rave: even though it’s cold, it’s a beautiful day to go out walking and checking out some open houses

    • Rave: Snow!
      Rant: Everyone on facebook either complaining about the snow or bragging that they live somewhere with no seasons where snow isn’t an issue. I like snow and the change of seasons, and I don’t want to live in your supposedly ideal location that stays 70 all year.

  • New furnace works like a charm. Good thing, we remodeled the firs floor and took out three of the original radiators. Drafty old house no more.

  • what temperature does your house get before you turn on the heat?
    mine is at 64 and i’m being stubborn about not turing it on. might be time.

    what temp do you all keep your thermostat set?

  • Anyone know anything about the police helicopter was shining it’s spotlight into the woods behind the public garden in Glover Park starting at about 2:30 last night? Seemed to be focused on the area around Tunlaw and New Mexico. Circled for a good 20-30 minutes then heard lots of sirens. Nothing on the MPD 2D listserv so far.

  • Maybe they were looking for the mountain lion.

  • maybe the mountain lion was released by Sherif Coltrane since he understands that the mountain might get ’em. But the law never will …

  • Rant: our contractor, who’s already a month behind, left for his vacation while our house is a disaster.

  • Anyone know what happened on the 4300 block of Kansas Ave. this morning? The front door glass is smashed in, blood all over the porch trailing down the front walk and across the sidewalk. Police tape and oddly parked cars in front. Lots of blood everywhere. Very disturbing, sorry my gf had to see this.

  • Rave:

    Being aggressive with the landlady has come up with some results. I’ve now got status reports on all of the issues!

    When things come together, this is going to be an awesome apartment!

    And I got a haircut, massage, manicure and a good night of sleep. Starting to feel like a real person again.

    I can’t adopt a cat until I get things settled here and get back from my trip. But Widget, the cat living at Old School Hardware in Mt P is the sweetest cat in the world. I hope someone snaps her up soon, but I wish it could be me.
