DCeptette: What's the worst that I can say version

  1. There is a hairdressing school in our office building, whose students have frolicked in the portico for the past couple of days. Based on what we have seen, the future of hairdressing will be in the hands of sullen My Chemical Romance fans. You have all been warned.
  2. Dweebieboppers cross paths in Adams Morgan, and before you know it, everybody was kung-fu fighting. Well almost, anyway. But like true men, they took their fight to Craigslist.
  3. The Anacostia Diaries blogger shot a video of some nude guy at the White House getting arrested by Secret Service and proceeded to go into toxic Xanax withdrawal after no one in the media offered to drop everything they were doing to cover this prosaic event, wondering, "What if my life depended on this tape getting to the public?" If the current world circumstances were such that getting Mr. Nudie Kazoodie covered by the news were a matter of life and death, I would be overjoyed, because that would mean that we wouldn't be losing a war, a deadly-ass hurricane wouldn't be bearing down on Biloxi, they would have finally found that Natalie Holloway girl, Nancy Grace would be getting blunted, Christopher Hitchens would be at about step seven of his sobriety program, and every single problem in the world would have dissolved into a chocolate bunny paradise of clogging, hugging, and free daquiris. They're just not that into you! (The Anacostia Diaries)
  4. Only four months of shopping until Christmas! What do you get the county that has everything? I know! Another tedious WaPo blog! Congratulations, Band Camp! Welcome to 2002! (DCist)
  5. What do I think about Columbia Heights? Hmmm. That's a really good question! I'll tell you what I think: the next person who refers to that neighborhood as "CoHi" is gonna get throatpunched. (Craigslist)

SO I guess you won't like my idea of refering to the Area in SE as SoPo, South of the Potomac.

I likve how that Anacostia Diaries site is averaging a 6:1 spam-to-actual-comment ratio.

I can't believe someone would actually take the time to post that on Craigslist (re: kung fu fighting). Jeez, let it go already.

Huh.

I guess I live in SoArJuWePoaPR (you know, South Arlingtion Just West of The Potomac at Pentagon Row) then.

Sheesh. A hip-sounding name, regardless of the amount of intercapitalization doesn't make a crappy neighborhood (Columbia Heights is trying so hard . . . ) any cooler.

DC, outside of BeDuCi restaurant, has avoided these terrible sorts of neighborhood names that are like a plague in NYC. As the South Bronx gentrifies, look for SoBro. Apparently, they already call Washington Heights-Inwood "Wahi". "Wahi" is something you eat on a luau.

We're in grave danger of the neighborhood developing at the intersection of New York and Florida Avenues coming to be known as NewYoFla. We must act now to prevent this.

Dude, some developers are trying to re-christen Mt Vernon Square and the convention center area NoMa (north of Massachusetts). Seriously.

DCepticon said...

NoMa (North of Massachustes Avenue), has been buzzing around for a couple of years. But unless you are outside the developing world of the District these nominclatures don't seem to catch on. Its hard enough explaining to someone that if they are closer to Logan Circle than DuPont Circle they are not part of DuPont East.

Regardless, the abbreviations are still shorter than the actual Metro stop names.

Winter Sorbeck said...

And wouldn't it be terrible if they started doing it to the longer-than-necessary metro stop names? Like RIBWood for the newly christened Rhode Island Avenue-Brentwood Station. Or my personal favorite, WoPaZoAMo (for Woodley Park-Zoo/Adam's Morgan).

You have a hair school in your building??? You have GOT to hang outside during their breaks on your lunch hour and listen to their scissor stories. "So...I said, "Ohnoyoudidnot," and she said "yesIdidsayyoudidnot," and then I said, "oh yes you did."
