Overheard in my Life

Rather than weekly installments, I'm just going to post whenever there's been a good string of post-able conversations. By the way, I'm pretty sure everyone is going to want to overhear the Colbert Report tomorrow night because Sean Penn has accepted Stephen's challenge to duel in a Metaphor-off. That's right. Jeff Spicoli is going to battle to the death using one of the most powerful tools in the English language. It's going to be neat!

Anyway, OVERHEARD:

4/12

C: I’m about to forward you something. You tell me if she’s having a manic episode or started taking crystal meth.

LG: Are those my only two choices?

C: So it seems.

LG: Awesome. Can’t wait.

------------------------------------------------------

4/12

Kfo: Obviously, I excel at duels. Being from Texas and all.

------------------------------------------------------

4/13

C: Most surprising sentence I've ever read: “A lawyer for the Republican National Committee told congressional staff members yesterday that the RNC is missing at least four years' worth of e-mail from White House senior adviser Karl Rove that is being sought as part of investigations into the Bush administration, according to the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.”

LG: Yeah I read about that. Did you see Pat Leahy up there saying, "You can’t lose email! That's like saying the dog ate my homework!"?

C: hahahaha. I mean, what is the defense? "Whoops! I accidentally deleted FOUR YEARS worth of email"

C: Maybe Karl Rove just doesn't have gmail. So he had to delete to make room.

LG: Should we send him an invitation?

C: We should. It’s the Christian thing to do

LG: His email is kr@georgewbush.com. They showed it on the news last night. That’s the account he uses for "political" matters, not "white house" matters.

C: When he says "white house" stuff, he probably means, "e-vites and forwards from Laura."

LG: Naturally. That’s what I assumed too.

4/13

Rachel: If I wear that shirt, then I can sing “domo arrigato mr roboto” allllll the time.

LG: yes.

LG: and it wont be weird.

LG: [rolling eyes]

Rachel: thats the second time within two days someone has given me a digital eyeroll.
---------------------------------------------------

4/13

Ted: Does anyone know where the closest rope store is? Cause, God I hope it’s still open.

---------------------------------------------------
Late entry from an e-mail chain this morning:

Sarah:
Casting Call: The search for the new Menudo will come to New York on April 28 from 11a-4p at Queens Center Mall, 9015 Queens Boulevard, Elmhurst. Celebrity judges participating that day will be music manager, Johnny Wright and recording artist Don Omar.

Mike: Has Tobias Funke been sending you clips from Variety again?

Sarah: Yes, but not Variety. He said he found it in a trACTOR magazine under "parts parts parts."

Sham: He thought he was on his way to the audition but he accidentally boarded a bus full of homosexual pirates.

Leslie: I'm not really interested in recreating Menudo, but if they're auditioning for Dr. Funke's 100 Percent Natural Good Time Family Band Solution, sign me up.

Sarah: Sorry, I have already put together that super group. But I can make you an alternate.Current members include: Vanilla, "The Landlord" from the Will Ferrell clip "The Landlord", and Bob Anderson
