It could be the excess eggnog or frenzied shopping centers, but some people's careful judgment can be absent during the holidays. This week's Overheard in L.A. round-up includes overheard conversation on sailing, office holiday parties and Momento.

Our Overheard in L.A. feature relies on you to send us the strange conversations you overhear in this city. Send them our way at (In the e-mail, put "overheard" in the subject and tell us who said it, where they said it and any amusing context.)
