Site maintenance

We're doing some work on the site (migrating it from blogger to a hosted account - we're so fancy) so www.eavesdropdc.com might not work intermittently for the next few days. eavesdropdc.blogspot.com shouldn't be affected. It's all in the interest of progress (and it isn't like we post over the weekend anyway).

And on the 4th day, God created giant slices of pizza

Guy: They're doing God's work here.

--Jumbo Slice in Adams Morgan, 3:30pm on Valentine's Day. Yes, PM.

This could get ugly!

I was waiting on the Blue and Orange line platform. One of the subway preachers starts yelling his version of the gospel, and a girl in the distance audibly laughs.

The girl next to me, who is apparently full of Christ's love, says: "That bitch better quit laughin', shut up, and listen!"

That's right, you'd better love Jesus, bitch.

A sign our criminal justice system works

I was walking up 14th street between U & V and there were a bunch of guys standing around - one guy said, "Man, I have way too many felonies to fuck with that guy!"

Alright, see ya at home honey

Overheard at George Mason in Fairfax:

There was a bald guy walking around in the student union, talking on his cell phone.

"I'm not sure how I feel about you giving hand jobs to the guys you work with..."

Were you at Cornell with Andy Bernard?

After a very loud argument between a couple and the female getting off the metro ...

Nosy Girl- "I understand where you're at. I was jobless for six months, and I went to Cornell!"
Sad Guy - "Yeah, it has been rough."
Nosy Girl - "Seriously, I mean, I went to Cornell! An Ivy League school. You know it's bad if I can't get a job right away."

I believe you mean illusionists.

Early-40's Dude #1: I'm not like that anymore. I've matured.
Early-40's Dude #2: Really? Show me. Do something mature.
Early-40's Dude #1: It doesn't work like that.
Early-40's Dude #2: You know, magicians and psychics tell me the same thing.

I call shenanigans.

Crossing the street in front of Gelman library, 20 year old guy to his friend:
"Yeah, then I finally found my lap top...in the dumpster...covered in semen. So that's pretty much how that went."

End of the story: he was beaten to death with a prosthetic leg.

Waiting for the elevator doors to close inside Union Station metro -

Guy (as he jumps into elevator): "hurry up and close the doors before any wheelchairs come in!"

(chuckles to himself and looks around to see if anyone is in agreement - we're not.)

Door closes.

Guy again: "Whew! That was close...I mean jeez, they already get free parking."

She needs her own boyfriend, you mean.

In a restaurant bathroom in Penn Quarter:

Girl 1: I don't know, I just think she's depressed and she needs a boyfriend or something.
Girl 2: Well I mean she keeps f***ing your boyfriend, so I guess she needs a guy.
Girl 1: Yeah, I guess that's why she and I aren't on really good terms right now.

You heard it here first - suck it, TMZ

A woman walks into the cafe with her two- or three-year-old son and points to a magazine with Obama's picture on the cover.

"Do you know who that is, sweetie?"

The little boy looks at the picture for a minute, then back at Mom: "DADDY!"

Mom looks around to make sure no one heard - oops!

Wait, Is Bette Midler Haitian?

In Shirlington:

"I talked to Ben and he's in for Bette Midler....that reminds me, I gotta send some money to Haiti. That shit is baaaaad."

Duh. It was totally Freddie Prinze Jr.

Group talking about Dawson's Creek. After 10 minutes of conversation:

Guy: Yeah, so Dawson was Rachel Leigh Cook right?


Sorry about the lack of 2010 posts so far. The holidays came and went and then your editors spent some time eavesdropping in sunny LA. Here's one of our favorites (heard on Venice Beach):

Cashier: Yeah I'd say that bacon makes everything better. I try to give it up, but then I think, being addicted to bacon is way better than being addicted to crack.

Our humblest apologies. Keep sending those eavesdrops in and we'll work to get them online for the world to see!
