Overheard in Various Places


This damned fibre optic internet is still being a pain. I was lucky to get more than 15 minutes of continuous on-line time yesterday. Hopefully today the line will settle down and stabilise.

Seeing as it was her Birthday New Year's Eve last night, I took Hay out for a meal.

Overheard in the pub:

Hay: "Basically, once they get to your age, there are two kinds of men; the sad ones who try too hard (going to the gym and obviously aren't suited to it), and the genuine slobs."

Chairman: "What about me?"

Hay: "Among the two types of men are such diverse elements as the try-too-hard, the slob....and the deluded - oh damn! Among the three types of men are such diverse elements as ....."

Later, while watching "Witness" at home:

Hay: "How can Harrison Ford make drinking a glass of lemonade look sexy? Among the three types of men are such diverse elements as the try-too-hard, the slob, the deluded.... and Harrison Ford - oh damn! Among the four types of men are such diverse elements as ....."

Later still:

Hay: "Kelley McGllis is about to abandon her faith."

Chairman:"Did you abandon your faith when you met me?"

Hay: "I abandoned by bloody senses!"
