Spotted: Who Wears [Short] Shorts

In the Senate Cafeteria this afternoon a young brunette intern was spotted wearing black wedges and tan "formal shorts", that hit mid thigh. I know it's recess, and it's hot out but unless you're a tourist, honey, no.

Heard: It's not like we are in New York

Intern #1: Hey, you know New York Sports Club? It's in DC too but they call it Washington Sports Club.
Intern #2: Do you know where it is?
Intern #1: Somewhere on K Street.
Intern #2: You know, like, K Street is a long street.
Intern #1: It's not like we're in New York. I'm sure it won't be hard to find.

Spotted: Time Off for a Happy Hour

My office has a fairly simply system of keeping track of the staff. We have an online leave form that you fill out and then post on our office site. This enables everyone to know where you are in case there is a call or someone is looking for you. Today, one of our interns filled his form out, graciously letting the entire staff, including the director of our division, know that he would be leaving early for a crucial "intern happy hour." If you are going to skip out on work for fun, try not to publicize it.
