I’m on record saying it’s ok to kiss a bumper when parking but this is, well, not cool.

I have to say irony is fairly entertaining. I recently recorded an individual casing our property for a possible future break in. I emailed the video the police and they recommended a sign to try to help deter an future theft. I ordered the sign on amazon along with a ten dollar motion light.

I had a taste for some dessert and remembered that there’s a new Insomnia Cookies on H St near my condo in Trinidad (half a mile away).
To my surprise (or dismay), Insomnia Cookies has specifically carved Trinidad OUT of its delivery zone. Maybe they think this is the Trinidad of 2006…even if it was, residents still deserve delivery options.
Does anyone know of any other H St food locations refusing to deliver to Trinidad??”
