Open House: Lee and Marty from ChristineDriscoll on Vimeo.

“The first two episodes follow one character, Tabitha, while she looks for a spot in a group house in the competitive and high-strung world of DC group houses. As anyone familiar with the process knows, the challenge of convincing strangers that you are the best possible version of yourself is sometimes demeaning, always strange, and often funny.”

Gotta respect the good sense of humor!

A reader admits:

“Yesterday, I reached a new milestone and managed to find myself locked between the two front doors in the entry to my almost-purchased new home in Truxton Circle. After twenty minutes of trying to open the doors, sitting on the floor, checking work emails, wasting time on social media, my relator came to let me out.

New homeowners beware—bring all keys with you at all times!”


A reader sends from 11th and U St, NW:

“We witnessed a younger police officer and his partner lock their keys in the squad car. Several police and an hour later they finally got in.”

D’oh! But I admit it, I’ve locked my keys in the car too. Though an hour to get back in with all that went down yesterday…


Thanks to a reader for sending – I needed this today.

From Craigslist:

“This ottoman has character. Just look at it. Charisma even. in its day it was the best ottoman ever. Then you have kids who turn in to teens and they destroy everything in your house and your soul. They broke the ottoman but only the top. He cracked a little under the pressure. I tried to fix him. I used bungee cords #dontjudge. It works. Some people who you gave life to make fun of the ottoman now and call it names. Then they have friends that come over and laugh at the ottoman and its inability to be a true ottoman. He doesn’t deserve this! Please take him. Fix him if you can. Just don’t let the millennial tease him any more.

I’m keeping the bungees though they cost me $3.98.”
