As the buzz begins about next week’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, everyone’s talking about President Obama at Facebook, Charlie Sheen’s visit to D.C., and the unfortunate Georgetown flooding. Here are some of this week’s top tweets.

@charliesheen: thank u DC! awesome night! epic day. the Warlock with the Zim! Nats park a beauty! and TZ is a Rock Star, NOT TMZ.
Off our radar temporarily, Charlie Sheen reappeared (although very late & escorted by a questionable police motorcade) this week to “perform” in D.C decked out in Washington Nationals Gear and ready to make a scene.

@jaredchristman: @charliesheen There’s a bottle of SoCo in my freezer with your name on it if you hook me up with some tickets. That’s #winning.
@onixvh1: I work up this morning ill with stomach pains. Not sure if it was the Spicey Bite from 7-11 that I ate at midnight or The @CharlieSheen Show
@dance_DC: Why am I listed under ‘Charlie Sheen Hits DC?’ Is there a way to remove yourself from a Twitter list?
@petersuderman: Perfect: The Salahis were spotted at the Sheen show…signing autographs in the lobby: http://wapo.st/ikcafW
News (and photos) spread quickly of the terrible flooding on the Georgetown waterfront earlier this week, leaving many of the area restaurants out of commission.
@dcist_updates: Images of this morning’s massive flooding inside Washington Harbour in Georgetown: http://bit.ly/giixnP
@pwgavin: We are all Georgetowners today.#neverforget
@FarmersandFishers: Due to the flooding, we’re closed for the time being. Everyone is fine, and we’re working hard to get the water out so we can re-open soon.
@SequoiaDC: Hey, we made the news…though not how we’d prefer to make the news.http://fb.me/sWY0aYNW

And finally, on the note of the upcoming White House Correspondents’ Dinner…
@delrayser: I hope everyone sitting at the Washington Post’s WHCD table has their birth certificates handy.
We’ll have more WHCD buzz for you next week — stay tuned!
