Favorite music does not include Nirvana

In Jumbo Slice in Adams Morgan and two girls were talking about a dating site and one explains: I didn't want to put "any" in my profile 'cause I didn't want anybody into Buddhisism...you know, like, BUDDHISISM! That would be too weird for me.

(Editor's Note: that's how the religion was spelled in the email we got - not sure if that's what the girl said or if it's just a typo).

We're letting this one stand on its own.

Boss man to staff: Growing up, there was a kid on my block who was a lot like John McCain. His team was losing touch football 10-75 so he said, "um my mom needs me" and ran home, and, of course, took the ball with him. That's John McCain."

When all you're left with is tired-ass jeans.

Overheard exiting the Dupont Metro Station ...

Two young guys (not overtly gay) standing on the Dupont escalator behind two girls ...

Girl #1 to Guy #1: "Excuse me ... but would you please stop staring at my friend's ass!"

Guy #1's response: "Bitch, puh-lease! You're in Dupont Circle ... and I was staring at them tired-ass jeans."

Girl #1's response grinning ear to ear: "I like you ... you're my new best friend."

Girl #2 looking shocked and slightly hurt: "And where does that leave me!?"
