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.

    Rant – Drivers who pull out too soon and like to make themselves feel better by honking at pedestrians that a) have the light b) are in the crosswalk and not jaywalking! You know who you are red Mini on Wisconsin

    Revel – This beautiful day today!

  • Rant: Neighbor thinks that Saturday morning before 10am is a great time to blast music. I’M TRYING TO SLEEP IN FOR ONCE!!!!!

    rant: I have to be out in falls church tomorrow at 7:30 am. I remembered yesterday that metro doesn’t open until 7. So, I’ll need to leave at 5:15 and take 4 busses to get there or hope i can actually find a cab early on a Sunday morning and that it will take me out to Virginia. Any advice Popville?

    Rave: Beautiful day to drive with the top down!
    Rant: Drove to the office to work all day. Boo!

  • SadRant: My childhood dog passed away this week. She stayed with my parents after I went away to college but it’s still sad as an adult knowing you can’t go home to your puppy. She had a very long happy life for a corgi at 15 years. She was already at the vet when she got sick so she had the best medical care and didn’t suffer. Hug your pooches, all!

  • dreaming of me

    Rave: I know it’s tough to lose an hour of sleep but I truly love the extra hour of daylight and the promise of Spring just ahead of us! Happiness!

    Rant: Bizarre dream last night. I dreamt that my landlord asked me to perform a contract hit on one of his enemies. He was going to pay me $612,000 for the hit, gave me a very menacing looking gun and told me where and when I could find the person. I agreed to the request as though it was no different than agreeing to pick up his mail while he was out of town. Fortunately, the profound moral implications of the request finally kicked in and I ultimately refused to perform the hit but all throughout the dream, my landlord was creeping around watching whether or not I was complying with his plans.

    Yeesh. Annoyed that I had to deal with serious moral dilemmas and murderous intent while I was just trying to get some sleep.

  • Rant: Bicyclists who want to be pedestrians when they turn in front as you take off from a stop sign “Hey asswipe, I’m in the crosswalk;” who want to be cars when they’re coasting at 3 mph in front of you in a 25 mph zone “Shut up dipshit, I’m a vehicle too.” Actually, I just hate bicyclists.
