Found: Two sets of keys in Columbia Heights

I found two bunches of keys today (Sunday @ noon) on Park Rd between 11th and 13th. Let me know if you’ve lost keys and what keychains/membership cards are on the bunch.

Places to walk your… cat?

Hi all,
This is sort of a ridiculous question but does anyone know of a good place to walk your cat?

I’m from NC and my cat is used to being an indoor/outdoor cat and doing whatever he wants. Now he is stuck inside all day and is going CRAZY. I’ve gotten him a million awesome toys and structures but he just wants the real deal.

I got one of those cat leashes but i don’t have a backyard or anything to walk him around in. Anyone know of a place where there would be little to no dogs that I could walk this guy at? Has anyone else wanted to walk their cat?

Thanks!!

Housekeeper Recomendations

Hi all, we are looking for a housekeeper who works in the Petworth neighborhood. I’m looking for the kind of housekeeper that would move an ottoman to vacuum under it rather than just around it. Anyone have a good one they’d be able to share? I can be reached here or at hwhitpan at gmail.

Road Rage Attack on Cathedral Ave & New Mexico Ave NW – January 26th @ 8:35am

This morning, on my way to work, I was victim of road rage. Some psychotic asshole started honking at me frantically as I was pulling to the road (Mind you that I did look before I started pulling out, and saw him, but he was far behind so I felt comfortable pulling out. Obviously I didn’t realize he was coming down flying on a 25MPH road, and was pissed that he had to stop, he made such a big deal he also pissed me off and, YES I flipped my finger at him.
I moved on and kept on driving but had to stop at the light located on Cathedral Ave and New Mexico, this asshole got out of his car, and started pounding at my window so hard I thought he was going to break it… not once, not twice but 4 times and he also spit on my window. I just looked at him standing right on my face in disbelieve, with just a glass in between. When the light changed, I had no other reaction than to keep on driving. He made a left turn, as I did, and then the very first right after the turn.
When I got out of my shock, I pulled my phone and called 911, gave them the description of the car and the individual which is as follows:

Blue Ford Pick Up Truck with DC tags
White Male, on his mid 30’s, with light brown hair and a full beard, he was wearing a blue hoodie and jeans.

As this was happening, there was a number of people standing at the bus stop (Cathedral & NM towards TenleyTown Metro), probably watching in disbelieve as I was… If you happened to see this, please reply to this message. Assholes like this can not be terrorizing people because they are having a bad day. If this is what you do for something as little and insignificant as this, you NEED HELP!!

Tankless Water Heater

Hi Everyone – I am thinking about switching to a tankless water heater and I am looking for advice, red flags, and contractor/plumber recommendations to talk to. Here is the story: Our water heater is old and will need to be replaced soon. We currently don’t always have enough hot water going to our upstairs bathroom for 2 of us to take decent length hot showers. I have never taken a bath in this house because I am confident I couldn’t fill the tub with hot water. I just want enough hot water to take a nice, long, hot bath and on other days get a few of us through hot showers in the mornings. Finally, our water heater is located *behind* our washer/dryer. I have a hope that if we go tankless, I can recoup a little space back there. I know we’ll need to deal with our gas line, but thats all I know. Any advice? A solution other than tankless that would get me a hot bath in a deep tub? Our current water heater is about 80 gallons I believe but its not easy to check. And currently there are only 2 of us.

Where would you want to live if you worked late on the Hill?

I currently live and work on the Hill (by Capitol South) and am thinking about moving. Problem is, I rarely work 9-6 or 7, and I don’t want to have to deal with changing metro lines or buses late at night or walking through emptyish streets late. That said, I’d still like to be in an interesting, even bustling part of town and not spend a butt-load of money. I wouldn’t even mind a longish commute if it meant the actual walking late at night part was minimal. I’m looking around close-in parts of the Hill and Eastern Market (even if the walk is longer than my current 15 mins, I can hop on a bus when it’s really late). Also considering Glover Park on Wisconsin (30s buses) – after years on the Hill, convenient grocery stores are way more exciting than they should be – and U Street (96 stops in front of the Capitol when I don’t feel like waiting at L’Enfant for a change). I’m also restricted by affordability, as I’m looking for a studio for around $1300. So I’m curious, if you had to commute late at night from this part of town and didn’t have a car, where would you want to live? Or if you do work on the Hill and live in another neighborhood, how do you feel about your commute?

Certificate of Occupancy Basement — Seeking recommendation for architect/permit expediter

I know that this topic has been addressed in the past but I am hoping for some current recommendations from the Popville community. We have a basement unit that needs a Certificate of Occupancy. It is essentially up to code, we believe, but may require a few minor updates and possibly some window masonry. We are looking for an individual (could be an architect) or company that could handle any needed updates to the property in order for it to be to code while also dealing with inspections and expediting permits. Any referrals would be most appreciated!

Wedding After-Party Suggestions

Hi PoPville,

I’m getting married near Dupont Circle this May and am looking for a place for our after-party. Preferably a bar without a room rental fee for about 30 people. It doesn’t need to be totally private, I just want to make sure we have enough space to stay together. I’m considering the front room at Jack Rose, any other suggestions?

Desire Map Workshop at Yoga Heights DC – Jan. 31

The Desire Map Workshop – Level 1 is a one day retreat to ditch relentless goal setting and orient your goals around your core desired feelings. Knowing how you want to feel can transform the way you work, live, and love.
.
Let 2015 be the year the journey feels as good as reaching the destination.

Get all the juicy details + sign up here: http://www.jessicaleighlyons.com/#!desire/c20wm

Part I: Desire Map Workshop – Level 1 led by Jessica Leigh Lyons
When: Saturday, January 31, 10:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Where: Yoga Heights DC

This program is for clarifying what you truly want in every area of your life, and using that powerful awareness to guide your choices from now on. You will be guided through 5 life areas, to explore your most desired feelings in:

Lifestyle + Livelihood
Creativity + Learning
Body + Wellness
Relationships + Society
Essence + Spirituality

We will create sacred space, inner and outer – backed by a great music playlist and tied together with shared intentions. We’re going to burn limiting beliefs (figuratively, and maybe literally.) We will offer up our own wisdom, relate, and learn from each other — like women (and some very cool dudes) always do.

You will make some soul-anchored declarations and attach them to some every day PLANS. Poetic to the practical.

Part II: 60 Minute Coaching Intensive

After the workshop, you’re bound to be brimming with ideas. You’ll have a one-on-one 60 minute coaching call to solidify your CDFs and craft a high-level plan that feels good for your 2015.

I want to support you in 2015 being the year that felt joyful, so if you have questions about whether this is the right fit, the right time, the right group, please reach out. jess@jessicaleighlyons.com
