Closed for Christmas

EavesdropDC will be closed for the next few days to celebrate Santa giving birth to baby Jesus on Hanukkah or something. We'll be back on Monday. Unless we get another sweater this year. Then we might go on a mad rampage and get ourselves locked up. Anyway, enjoy the season.

Drunk dialing isn't the only booze and phone related injury - don't let it happen to you!

Girl in Gallery (on GW campus): "I don't get it. My mom kept calling me last night, and I kept answering, and each time I was more drunk. How did this happen? oh and then she told me who I should have sex with...thanks slut"

Customer: "Wow, you're picky."

Cashier: "I'm picky about my men too; they have to have all of their teeth."
