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.

Please be very careful in the heat today!

  • RANT: hate, hate, hate this weather. Please let it snow tomorrow. Please.

  • Amazing we’re actually burning natural gas today to make hot water! We should do better at gathering the sun’s awesome power.

  • Two kids, indoors yet again, so BORED. Too hot to do ANYTHING outside. Ugh. Bring on October.

  • I’m usually scratching summer away as fast as I can for the heat and humidity. These days, upper 80’s/low 90’s sound good to me right about now. Everything is about perspective.

  • I went out early this morning to try to beat the heat today. OMG – smack! in the face from the heavy humidity. Dew point of 75!? Please go away dew point.

  • An impact winter sounds so very inviting right now.

  • Somebody I work with screwed me just for the sake of screwing me last night.

  • Rant: having to take a last minute, somewhat expensive trip to Vermont to start cleaning out my mother’s house, which after 3 years, is finally under contract for sale (bonus RAVE).

    Rave: gonna be soooo much cooler in Vermont this weekend

    Rave: got a not-so-ridiculously priced ticket with a last-minute Priceline bid that landed me on Delta Shuttle, so at least the flights and layover have been comfortable.

    Rave: it must be so hot in DC that you guys are really stuck inside, because for once the Saturday RRR actually has some traffic! Something to amuse me while in Laguardia…

  • Rant: Earl Gray

  • Rave: In the column of things DC does well – the Ft. Totten Transfer Station. I had a couple of garbage bags full of documents to shred. Searched the dc.gov site for bulk shredding and discovered that there is bulk shredding the first Saturday of every month. Apart from a relatively short wait in the long line to get in, everything went smoothly. And the folks working there had fantastic attitudes, given that they were working outside in 110 degree weather.

  • Rant: Had to call back a waitress at Lauriol Plaza who used the bathroom, flushed the toilet and tried to walk out without washing her hands. I called her back and told her to wash her hands or show me who her manager was. What pissed me off was the fact that SHE was pissed off that I demanded she wash her hands after using the bathroom. And you know what, even if she DIDNT use the loo, she was IN the bathroom. You wash damn hands anyway. That’s the last time I am going to that restaurant.

  • great pic of the eastern mkt vibration. inspired by this pic i’m employing the wet towel from the freezer on the head air conditioning these days and nights

    I can’t believe that I am actually looking forward to a Monday…only because this awful heatwave will be over.

  • Rant – Come on…just rain already. The weather gods are playing such cruel tricks on us.

    Rave – “Ted” was surprisingly pretty funny. It’s like a 90 minute Family Guy episode…if you like that sort of thing.

  • I had an interview and a second interview for a great job and they said they would be contacting me soon…its been a week since the first interview- when can I send an email to follow up?
