WaPo Reporter to Get Swirlie?

Fun times ahead at WaPo! Lindsay Applebaum, a sports editor at the esteemed D.C. establishment, posed a really intriguing question Saturday night at 10:36 p.m. Namely, who’s getting a swirlie? We looked it up in the Urban Dictionary just to be sure, but yes, this involves sticking a person’s head in a toilet. It is intended to be torture or punishment.

“Which of these people is going to get a swirlie on his last day at The Post? @PaulTenorio @dcsportsbog @RickMaese” she wrote. (Paul Tenorio and Rick Maese are sports reporters at WaPo.)

The tweet was later deleted, for which Applebaum is eternally grateful. “@PaulTenorio good work deleting that other tweet,” she wrote.

Tenorio and Maese: You’ve been warned.

FLOTUS’ Xmas present for POTUS is a secret, but no, it’s not a Presidential hot tub

“The truth is, we generally — we always say we’re not going to give each other gifts because the gift is the love that we have for each other.  Yes, that’s a good thing.  (Applause.)  But then he usually gets me something.  And them I’m like, we weren’t supposed to get each other stuff. So I got him something but I’m not going to say.  All right?  That make sense?  Last year one of the kids suggested that I get him a hot tub.  (Laughter)  Remember that?  We didn’t get him a hot tub.  (Laughter)” — First Lady Michelle Obama in remarks at Children’s Medical Center on Monday.

“@kjon Congrats on winning Trivia! Please send your info to special@foxnews.com for your prize!

Quotes of the Day

Movie metaphor for weekend debt ceiling debate

“This isn’t Groundhog Day. Groundhog Day was funny and had an ending.” — The Hill‘s White House Correspondent Sam Youngman in a Friday tweet. This was before Congress began to budge on a debt deal. A Senate vote is expected today at 2 p.m.

Reporter leans on anonymous sourcing

“It’s so sensitive that a lot of the conversations that i have at least are assumed to be on background. They don’t want their names or even their bosses attached to the information. The bargain is I will tell you here what’s happening behind the scenes, but you can’t give me up.” — Politico‘s Jonathan Martin on CNN “Reliable Sources” Sunday on using anonymous sources to update the Congressional debt story.

Blogger explains f*@%-filled hashtag

CNN butchers Weigel’s name

“CNN just called @DaveWeigel Dave “Wee-gul”. Good Fredricka.” — A California-based Progressive blogger who goes by the handle @GottaLaff in a Sunday tweet. To which Weigel remarked, “No respect, I tells ya.” Asked for other ways his name has been mangled, Slate‘s Dave Weigel explained, “Wee-gull or Why-GEL (hard g).” The correct way to pronounce Weigel is: WHY-gull.

Journo marvels over irony of middle name

“True story: ‘Hope’ is my middle name. #myparentshaveawonderfulsenseofirony” — Roll Call‘s Meredith Shiner in a weekend tweet.

More in movie metaphors…

“Durbin sat on park bench in #DC for 3hrs to clear mind this am over #debt” — NBC’s Luke Russert in a weekend tweet. To which Politico‘s Patrick Gavin wrote, “This debate now a Forrest Gump movie.”

Roland wants to smack cussing woman

“I hate when passenger whine about sitting on a plane when we land early. Gotta wait for a gate to open, fool!” — “Washington Watch” host Roland Martin in a Sunday tweet. Martin’s program is on hiatus until the fall. He continued his outrage, adding, “Ever been to a store before it opens? Same thing. Gotta wait for them to unlock door. Just wanna smack this cussing woman behind us on phone.”

What’s this about a ‘poop sandwich?’

“So I’m not saying omg Obama must be primaried or other emotional bs like that. But I am saying it’s legit to call a poop sandwich what it is.” — Media Matters’ Oliver Willis in a weekend tweet.

Bio of the Day

The Daily Caller‘s new Executive Editor David Martosko: “With all this manure, there must be a pony in here somewhere!” His Twitter handle: @EditMeDavid. His past: Nothing short of colorful with singing, swearing and public intoxication.

Superstitious journo

“I’m the only person in the office this morning. It’s eerily quiet. Storm’s a-comin. #sayingitsoitwonthappen” — WaPo Sports Editor Lindsay Applebaum in a weekend tweet. Watch out. She may get snappy if you call her “Lindsapple” on Twitter. (Shhh…it’s her Twitter handle.)

This just in…WaPo reporter Dan Zak announces that computers are down.

@MrDanZak: “Computers just lost power in the newsroom. Everyone’s standing up, actually talking to each other now. Lunch!”

“A power outage is impacting parts of our newsroom.”

Update #1: A WaPo reporter tells me, “Looks like our internet crashed. Messages indicate it was a major, major crash.”

Update #2: WaPo newsroom empties out.

Update #3: WaPo Book World Editor Ron Charles treats crash like a potential snow day, tweeting, “Who knows — maybe we’ll all have to go work at home!”

Update #5: WaPo‘s Lindsay Applebaum reports, “Angry editors and reporters, standing and waiting for power. Aaand lunch break.”

n5702314_35129200_386.jpgSay hello to Lindsay Applebaum, a sports producer/blogger at the Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive.

What word do you routinely misspell? “Guerdon.” Sameer Mishra knows what’s up.

What’s the name of your cell phone ring? “The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song”– The Flaming Lips. It’s just the “yeah yeah yeah” part, and it probably annoys people.

What time did you get up this morning? 8:30, and it was painful.

When did you last cry and why? Two days ago, when I saw this video.

How many emails do you receive a day, roughly? Hundreds, but most of them are junk. I’ve won the lottery at least three times today.

What’s your favorite letter? Q,X and Z (I play a lot of Scrabble).

What single person played the biggest role / had the biggest influence on your journalism career? Probably my father, who’s in the biz.

When’s the last time you volunteered? Where? I don’t know. … Anyone need a volunteer? Does it count as volunteering if someone asks you to do it?
