We know that burning calories after last week's debauchery is hard work, and it's a bummer that Mother Nature doesn't come equipped with an LED display to measure your caloric output.

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.)
