Quickly, Before Lunch...

  • "This adorable baby Phoenician character is a super original gift concept packed with a heartwarming positive message of hope for a bright and united Lebanon. "
  • There are a ton of Steelers songs on the airwaves right now, according to this article. And I know of at least one more (a knock-off of a popular muppets skit) that isn't mentioned in the article. Steelers fans are insane.
  • Want to visit DC? Need a hotel? Check out this special at the Georgetown Suites: Stay one night at the regular rate, and the, um, "second's night [sic] rate is the temperature outside at check-in!" Farenheit? Celsius? The loophole possibilties are endless.
  • Lynn Swann is one of the best receivers of all time. He's also a rich, white guy.
  • An FDA panel approves an over-the-counter weight loss pill, ironically named "Alli."
  • I present to you the Ron Mexico Name Generator. Johnny Shades = Peter Burkina Faso.
  • I finally checked out the Science Club last night. Overall, I liked it. Chill atmosphere - exposed brick, dark, candles, etc. - think 18th Street Lounge without the pretention. The main floor is a little loungier, the basement's a little grungier, so there's something for everyone. The music was a bit loud, but not offensively so. And the food wasn't bad - the pompously-titled "maison frites" were excellent, and the hummus was pretty good (not as good as Salim's, but good nonetheless). On a scale of 1 to 5, I give it 3 gyros.
