“Amazing find in the free section!”
“Have to leave DC for a new job, and really can’t afford to take care of these babies anymore. Would love to give most away before I try with a local pet store. Please be responsible with these great creatures and show them a good life. Downtown Washington, you have to come pick up.
I have 17 in total to give, many have eggs which will be included as well if you want them. I have a stand to hold the tubes too. Offer stands for a week, please call or text show contact info . I’m always up so don’t be shy!”
Update: “Unfortunately, it looks like the posting was taken down. I guess someone claimed the ants!”
Thanks to Becca for sending yesterday:
“When Ta-Nehisi Coates is speaking at a church in DC, the line wraps around the block and the people are reading while they wait.”
Look I don’t know why these things bring me so much joy but I can’t stop laughing. So just indulge me this once for God’s sake. hahaha. And thanks to Jeffrey for spotting this one yesterday:
“October 3rd and there’s a mini xmas tree on the curb at 12th and S.”
And I just wanted to take a moment and say what kind, considerate and thoughtful folks you have been this week. May the wind be at your back and the sun warm your face.
Thanks to Jessica for passing on from the Hollywood Reporter:
“Politics can be boring. Vice, which has some experience in making boring topics fun, is in the very early stages of developing a reality show that will have people of all political stripes living in a group house in Washington, D.C.”
Can the magic of MTV’s Real World visit in 2009 possibly be recreated?
The Vice Casting Call document says:
“POLITICAL REALITY SHOW
VICE Studios is casting for an experimental unscripted series that will bring together 18-45 year-olds from all walks of life and political extremes to live in close quarters in Washington, DC. If you are passionate about your political beliefs and will go to any length (including appearing on “reality TV”) to get your voice heard, we want to hear from you. Whether you have dreams of becoming a politician, or you think all politicians are crooks; whether you think its better to be judged by twelve than carried by six, or think that Obama really should have taken everyone’s guns away; or if you quite simply want to change the world and are bold enough to put your beliefs up against your political opposite in the most public setting imaginable, then we want to hear from you.”
Ed. Note: To say the Real World D.C. experience was a flop is being generous.
First I’ve seen with an ‘End’ up front. From the highfalutin car2go.
These have been showing up in the elevator of the L’Enfant Plaza Metro stop over the past few months.
They are brilliant. Kind of touching to find and read the messages during our normal rushed commute.
I wish I could start collecting them but they are left on the urine soaked floor of the elevator.
Thought PoPville would appreciate.”
Ed. Note: In other Express commentary – found this one in Cleveland Park:
More beautiful ones from L’Enfant Plaza after the jump. (more…)
hahaha thanks to Rob for sending: “Seen near Dupont Circle… They are starting to flock… I think it’s time to worry.”
At this point, I might welcome our robot overlords…
Hell yes it does, hell yes. Thanks to Meg for sending “August 1st, G st and 7th SE.”
