I am considering applying for a temporary (one year) position in Baltimore, and am wondering if the commute would be worth it. Does anyone commute to Baltimore, and if so, do you drive, take the train, or some other method of transport? How long is your commute?
FYI, I will be living in Southwest.
If you recently had your pink “classic style” bicycle stolen you may want to check around Girard street between 13th and 14th. I saw a male teenager riding it, and it definitely looked like neither the seat height nor the bright pink color really fit his style. Just looked odd.
When I first moved to D.C., I thought I must be nuts, because I would wake up at 2:00am hearing drumming and a strange gutteral tribal chanting, but could never figure out where it was coming from. Eventually, the sound would fade away; but it would come back every few months. Now I know I’m not the one who is crazy.
I figured out that there is a man who walks around late at night (sometimes 14th street Columbia Heights) while banging on what might be a paint bucket chanting at the top of his lungs. It’s always mildly irritating when he wakes me up, but since he’s a walking one-man band, at least he eventually moves out of earshot, so it’s stopped bothering me as much.
Does anyone else hear this man late at night or know anything about him?
At my old grocery store in the pre-prepared foods section they used to have tubs of fresh pico de gallo. I used to buy it all the time because I dump that stuff on everything–tacos, sandwiches, salads–how can you not? Unfortunately, I haven’t seen tubs of fresh prepared pico at the local Giant. (If you have, will you let me know where?) Does anyone know where in the CH area I can get tubs or jars of fresh pre-chopped pico? I’m afraid I’m just too lazy to mince tomatoes and onions all day.
This morning my husband’s zipper “jumped the track” on one side of his dress trousers. While this is normally something I would fix myself, I’m not sure I have enough black thread to finish the job properly by hand and am considering paying to have a tailor do this simple fix instead. Are there any cheap local tailors people have had good experiences with who will do this for a small fee, and approximately how much would it cost? If it’s going to be expensive I’d rather just replace the pants and donate them as they’re old anyway. Thank you!
