The Thoughts You Think When The Draught You Drink
OK so... This is developing into quite a routine for the Thursday night stamtisch.
Someone suggests a bar and then, suddenly, nothing happens when, en masse, no-one turns up.
There was just myself and Indy at the Prince Of Wales last night.
Next time we keep it a secret and millions will swarm!
Conversation hovered around various topics:
Such as why E@L has 2-3 stoic and reliably nice female readers and maybe 12 priapic male readers, while Indy who is much more "blokey" in person, in E@L's opinion, than E@L is, gets 5 male readers (most of whom he actually knows so it hardly counts) and 256 honey-babe female readers.
For example if E@L posted about a cute girl who had electrolysis of her genitalial(alialal) hair, he would be immediatley sterotyped as a gross pseudo-pedophile sex-tourist and fat bald dirty old man... Whereas if Indy posted about such a phenomenon, he would be praised for highlighting crucial self-image issues for the narcissistic liberation of the contemporary female gestalt.
In contradistinction, we agreed that we could both boost our hit-rates through the roof by putting a naked photo of Izzy in a post.
The difference between "showers" and "growers" - I'll let Indy explain that one.
About meeting people through the Internet. Some people are REALLY weird... Present company excepted...
The oh-so-fine line between an unrequited lover's "determined romancing" and stalking. When does Sleepless in Seattle become Fatal Attraction?
Whether we should go on Singles Web-site, and whether we'd put up a photo if we did. E@L: No. Indy: Yes.
Why San Miguel beer costs so much in Singapore yet is so cheap in the Philippines - Indy's already mentioned that.
Whether Clive Cussler
rocks SUCKS BIG TIME, or sucks ROCKS, DUDE!
And much more, pleasant gossip beyond the scope of E@L's memory.
Meanwhile, still reading:
Don't want this to end...
What to Talk About While Drinking a Martini
What is a clubbable condition of mind? Conversation should attempt wit (failed wit is fine); there should be a curious anecdote; some carefully carried new information from the work of the day; a newly reasoned position on the affairs of the world, or a surprising relinquishment of a long-held position; or the sharing of angst in a novel or humorous way. The mischievous act of gossip-telling as well as its content always confirms to me the exhilarating frailties of the human condition.
Think we managed most of that last night, just on San Miguel.
OTHER MONKEYS SAID
I'll take the nice, I'll even take the reliably but "stoic" !!
One who is seemingly indifferent to or unaffected by joy, grief, pleasure, or pain.
And.......... sorry I couldn't join you, next time perhaps. Glad you had a good time, some times a quiet night with Indy is just the ticket.
I mean "stoic" as in putting up with my crap and still coming back...
sorry miss izzy & Milos unable to attend, the studio was full of transexuals with machine guns again. You know how hard it is to control them.
as for naked pics, E@L it's time, you know what I am talking about!
Is it Near Naked Friday AGAIN? And me wif no camera!
You realise of course that your comment about me mentioning sans-pubic hair would not illicit a round of support...but to test this theory and put it to rest I will write the said post and post it next week.
About the only smart thing we sadi last night was Izzy photo's would increase traffic ~grin~
This Monkey Says:
Hello, came to your website through Milos'.
My daughter became quite disconcerted by the photo of the Noh Goat.
She could not decide if it was a man of a woman.
Finally, she proclaimed, "WOMAN!"
I didn't check its gender as I put the mask on... That's an udder story.
