Train flashbacks…

“My train delay made me late and uncomfortable. But thankfully it was relatively brief.” — ABC7’s Stephen Tschida, our wild train rider, in a PTSD moment earlier this week. And a Thursday tweet from Stephen we couldn’t resist: “Aghast dry cleaner asked ‘what wrong with your face?’ shivers down my spine till I looked in mirror. Gotta RUB in sunscreen!”

Teaching a dog new tricks

JRC media employee and former TBD Community Engagement Director Steve Buttry: “Actually, he wasn’t too bad on today’s drive.” That, in response to his wife, Mimi, who wrote: “Ladies & gentlemen, Duffy caught in a mischievous act.” Watch here as Duffy tries to juggle balls and then speak (i.e. bark).

News of the Nude

“So it’s National Nude Day. How are you observing this most undressed of all holidays?” — Mediaite TV Editor Mark Joyella in a Thursday tweet.

Journo Love

“Just want to give a quick shout-out to @rollcall’s @melstarkey, who has been invaluable this week w/ late-night & weekend edits.” — Roll Call‘s Meredith Shiner in a Thursday tweet.

Hopefully not a new trend: butt tweeting

“Think I just pocket tweeted :)” — NBC Washington’s Jim Long in a recent tweet.

Oh no, could it be?

“DmzsYodtlyylollzsalzmymz,t” — Mediaite‘s White House Reporter Tommy Christopher in a Thursday tweet, causing one opinionated reader to write, “Most intelligent thing you’ve ever said.” Moments later, Christopher explained, “LOL that was a pocket tweet.”
