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 and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or rejoice about daily life in DC.

    Unfortunately there were some shootings last night – from MPD:

    “The Third District is investigating a shooting which occurred in the 700 block of Harvard Street, NW at approximately 12:45 AM.”


    “The Third District is investigating a shooting which occurred in the 1300 block of Columbia Road at approximately 3:10 AM.”


    “Units continue at this hour to investigate a shooting that occurred around midnight in the 800 blk of Oglethorpe St NE. Units responded to the location for a report of shots fired and an adult male was determined to have received a non-life threatening apparent gunshot wound. The male was transported to an area hospital for treatment. The lookout. Is for a white Nissan Altima occupied by two unknown males. Anyone with information is asked to call 1-888-919-CRIM(E).”

    Chez Billy’s patio opens today at 5pm! [3815 Georgia Ave.]

    • I played upstairs at Chez Billy last night, and they were putting the finishing touches on the patio. The place looks great, and the vibe is really cool. Plus, the staff was awesome, and they fed us (the braised pork shank was phenomenal). I’m a big fan of the place…definitely looking forward to it being a regular Friday gig!

  • Rave: Pictures of kitties faces in glasses.

  • Rave: Beautiful weather & happening upon a soap-box derby at the Capitol this morning.

  • Rave: Finally! Someone came to take couch-zilla! Here’s to another 20 years in a new household!

    Rave: The young man who volunteered to help the ladies carry couch-zilla out.

    Rant: I have no excuse, except a sore back, to finish painting my den. room.

  • rant: migraines will not stop!
    rave: headache doctors!
    rave: my garden is beautiful!

    • If you’re getting migraines more than a couple of times a month and the meds aren’t working, ask your doctor about taking propranolol daily. Worked wonders for me.

    • I take topamax daily to prevent migraines… it has completely changed my life. You may want to look into preventatives.

  • Rave: Gorgeous weather. I took a walk around the hood. A father and son were out playing basketball in the street in front of their house. Standing there watching them play with great interest were three deer. Of course it’s the one time I left home without my cell phone so no pictures. The father said they watch all the time before heading across Eastern Avenue.

  • rant: woke up yesterday with an awful head cold. a cold in the summer on a weekend is so cruel

    Rave: The weather this weekend

    Rave: Canales @ Eastern Market

    Rant: Those covens of college chicks who cluster around the samples at the outside fruit & veggie vendors (and the chips & salsa stand) who refuse to let anyone get past them to select and make a purchase until each of them has tried whatever it is at least 3x and had philosophical debates about whether it “really is better than Whole Foods” (while pushing people out of the way so their friends who just got there can join in). “Excuse ME! Will you wait until we’re finished checking out the samples? You’re just buying stuff!” And, then, they don’t buy anything. Not even so much as a “thank you” to the vendor for the samples.

  • I love your photo – kitty head licking dry the glass of water.
