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 celebrate things about daily life in DC.

  • 13th St

    Rant: The limo with Maryland plates that has been parked in the same spot for 10 days on 13th St one block from U St Metro between Sand T. Zone 1 two hour parking limit! I’ve put in numerous parking enforcement requests at 311 online and most get closed with “No violation observed.” One lied and said he was there at 8:25 am and the limo was just pulling out and leaving. I left for work at 8:45 and it was still in the same spot. Tried a ROSA violation request this morning since it has been there so long. Again, why free parking for a Maryland business?

  • Rant: I have a headache, again. I feel like I’ve been sick all winter.

    Rave: I’ve got some books by my favorite author, Scott Westerfeld, to keep me company.

    Rant: Said books are YA so I’m blowing through them way faster than I want,

    Rave: but they are just so good.

    Rant: On my bike in Columbia Heights. Driver behind me honked and yelled “get in the bike lane” (and out of the road). I pointed to the truck parked in the bike lane – driver said “that’s still your lane, get out of the road.”

    Driving while impaired with stupidity – that’s what I would charge her with.

      How dare that car driver get mad at a slow lumbering vehicle blocking her lane while you were getting mad at slow lumbering vehicle blocking your lane. The NERVE of some people!

        how do you know the biker was mad?
        anyway, blocking the bike lane by double parking is illegal. a biker using the road to bike is not. the driver was the one in the wrong. whether you like it or not.

        Except I was keeping up with traffic and wasn’t blocking “her” lane at all.

    Rave: The ballet troops at the Kirov Academy really lifted my spirits. Had no idea there were so many talented dancers there.

    This picture reminds me of “The Craft” movie. “Hail to the Guardians of the Watchtowers of the East – powers of air and invention! Hear us!”
