QUOTES of the DAY
The above photograph is dedicated to my FBDC co-editor Matt Dornic for inexplicable reasons. And no, he doesn’t use hairspray.
Hopefully you like the windblown look
“D.C. weather Tuesday: No amount of hairspray will be enough.” — @washdcnews in a Monday morning tweet.
“No amount of hairspray will be enough to save hairdos around DC today. Expect some high winds.” — The illustrious TBD in a Monday morning tweet.
“Forget that little flirt with spring. Temperatures plummeting and gusty winds.” — Eun Yang, an NBC Washington morning anchor in a Tuesday morning tweet.
Reporter distracted by gurgling
“OK, whoever is making these bizarre gurgling noises really needs to stop. Oops. End of Gibbs quote may have been “foreign,” not “other.” The gurgling is going to my head.” — TWT‘s Kara Rowland in Monday tweets from a White House briefing.
Scribe offers ‘sweet ass’ compliment
“I wish more Press Sec’s tweeted like this RT @moirabagley Check out this sweet-ass op-ed we had in the WSJ today.” — The Daily Caller‘s Chris Moody in a Monday tweet regarding Moira Bagley, a former DC colleague and now spokeswoman to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). Read the release.
Weather and sex
“This frightens me.” — Former TBD GM and now consultant Jim Brady in a reactionary Monday tweet to a poll that claims that 4 percent of Americans have fantasized about a weather reporter. Read the WaPo story about sex and weather here. The poll asks you to compare your sex life to weather — ie. dark and stormy, hot and steamy, etc…The story is based on an AP and Weather Underground poll. In the AP story, winter gets an awfully bad rap: “Two-thirds of people find shorts and bathing suits are easier on the eyes than sweaters, scarves and boots.”
Happy Birthday Amos!
“I turned 31 years old today … and forgot to wear a belt to work.” — FamousDC’s Amos Snead in a Tuesday morning Facebook update. Yes, it’s his birthday.
