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. I’ll open this thread every Monday and Friday. So anything good happen to you this week?

Thanks to all who came to the happy hour last night and thanks to Social for hosting. Looks like we’re in for a beautiful weekend weather-wise!

  • JrWorthy

    Total rave – 48 Hr Film Competition this weekend. 48 hours of maddening non stop mayhem.

  • 12th Place

    Ha! I’ve been waiting for this all morning.
    Rave – A big THANK YOU to good samaritan Ivette Basterrechec who found my purse on the ground in Georgetown after it fell off of my bike on the way to work this morning. I didn’t notice it was gone until I got to the office. So upsetting! But she googled my name, figured out where I worked and called the office to say she had my purse. Cash, phone, credit cards, and check book all untouched.
    Good to know there are still some good people out there. Even in cities…
    (Rave #2. I got to bike all over town looking for my purse (in a panic) on this beautiful day.)

    • MT

      That’s cool!! And also creepy.

  • E-Rich

    Rave: This dude’s post brings back really good memories. Good luck! I had a couple small roles in 48 Hr competitions friends of mine did in college. It was always a lot of fun (especially for me since I didn’t have to stay up for two days of production and editing).

    • E-Rich

      Oops…that was supposed to be in reply to JWorthy. Best of luck!

  • Badger

    Does anybody know where I can get a good Cornish pasty around here?

    Not a calzone, empanada, or any other imposter. A real Cornish pasty.


    • m

      Represent! I’m from Montana where a good pasty is something of a birthright. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find any here in DC. On more than one occasion I’ve had to resort to making my own.

    • PT Varnum

      From a Cornish burlesque dancer?

      • Badger

        You’ve apparently not seen too many Cornish women. No.

        Pasty like pass-tee, not pace-tee.

        • PT Varnum

          I thought all Cornish women (and men for that matter) were pasty.

          I know the difference, couldn’t resist.

  • Ragged Dog

    Rave: Lead water pipe replaced with copper.
    Rant: Plumber was a numskull.
    Rave: Signed on the dotted line for roof solar today.
    Rave: Sunshine.
    Rave: Married.

  • Rave: have gotten a lot of praise and recognition this week at work A LOT i tell you A LOT!!! My hard efforts are not going unnoticed.

    Rave2: heading to Philly for nice weekend

    Rave3: all my hard work in the gym is paying off — my butt and belly look great!!!


    No Rants

  • Smilla

    Not really a rave or a rant — more of an FYI…

    Chain Bridge will be closed completely (again) this weekend for repairs. See https://www.arlingtonalert.com/latest.php

  • DC_Chica

    rave: tasty tacos at Distrito DF last night!
    rant: the rat we saw lurking next door while we dined al fresco… under the front steps of a building appropriately named “The Asrat”

  • Lady

    Soooooo, how was happy hour last night? I couldn’t make it. Lamp shade awards for anyone?

  • Stoney Danza

    rave: MMJ tomorrow at MPP
    rant: can’t wait to rave

  • PG

    Rave: Great weather, leaving work early today to enjoy it, awesome, fun outdoor gig tomorrow afternoon (I get paid to play music, have fun and eat amazing food.)

    No rants I can think of.

  • Buttercup

    Nice HH last night! Can we do the next one at Meridian Pint?

  • Brian

    rave: beautiful weather, grill season, bike ride, weekend, new LCD soundsystem, beer.

    rant: exams, work, tons of laundry, messy room.

  • notwithoutmerit

    i almost hit a biker today. and it was totally my fault.
    i’m sorry i almost killed you guy!

  • PG

    I hope it wasn’t one of those Sons of Anarchy guys.

  • MK

    Rave: A friend is treating me to a week at the beach in Florida. Hopefully the salt water will knock out this sinus/hayfever crap.

    Rave2 and gross: Opened the blinds this morning to catch the black garden snack sucking down a rat. I was thrilled but it’s not something I want to see when I’m trying to eat breakfast.

  • Lrob

    Rave: Phoenix and Two Door at Constitution Hall on Monday. Easily one of the best concerts of my life. Made my whole week.

    No Rants here.

  • Rave: I didn’t pee my pants today. Almost did, but then didn’t.

    (Captcha: full liners! awesome.)

  • 5th street
