These tweets reveal a candid and fascinating portrait of what is on our collective minds: Twitter gives a snapshot of what we're doing, thinking and hoping for.

I get that it's New Year's Day, but good grief is @farmfishbakedc service completely overwhelmed today. Had to go to bar to get water. (@hgil)

With a reservation, it took 40 mins to be seated @farmfishbakedc. Took waiter 10 mins to appear. No drinks 15 mins after waiter appeared. (@hgil)

Live tweeting a pretty bad brunch experience is not making it better. May need to visit Starbucks to get feel-good, unifying message. (@hgil)

Wife & I are sharing a knife @FarmFishBakeDC. Have asked waiter 3 times for a knife. Still no knife. May put out APB for waiter. (@hgil)
