Joke: An Texan In London

March 8th, 2003

[London]A Texan was taking a taxi tour of London, and was in a hurry. As they went by the Tower of London the cabbie explained what it was and that construction started in 1346 and it was completed in 1412.

The Texan replied, “Shoot, a little ol’ tower like that? In Houston we’d have that thing up in two weeks!”

House of Parliament next – Started construction in 1544, completed 1618. “Hell boy, we put up a bigger one than that in Dallas and it only took a year!”

As they passed Westminister Abbey the cabby was silent. “Whoah! What’s that over there?”

Personal: Not going clubbing

March 8th, 2003

[Not clubbing]Yesterday, because it was one of my co-workers quarter-of-a-century birthday (yep, she’s 25) we finished work early and went down the pub for a few pints. We had a good laugh and talks – everything from what our boss has got planned for the future (he’s a damn fine businessman with a lotta good ideas!), to what my co-worker (who I’m now going to refer to as MSSC – my sweet shy co-worker as she is!) had planned for last night (a meal out with family) and what my new co-worker (BRCW: bike riding co-worker as that’s how she gets to work) thinks of her new job, to my idea of a new source of power (I didn’t go into too much detail, because if it *is* feasible, which I doubt actually, it will practically make me a millionaire overnight) etc etc: good laughs all round really.

We went for 1 pint each because MSSC had to catch a lift home at our “normal” finishing time, but we didn’t leave the pub until around 2.5hours later! I already think that I’ve talked with BRCW more than MSSC despite her only working with us for a week now: they are both very sweet and nice, but BRCW’s got a boyfriend (and, co-incidentally, last year worked for around 4 months at my local Jacksons corner-shop along with having worked for Samworth Brothers who I used to work for as well at one point) and MSSC just seems happy to study and I don’t think it helps with us both being sortof shy and quiet.

No, don’t get me wrong, I’m not deliberately saying that I want to go out with either of them (although we all do seem to get on extremely well together and it could just be a case of getting to know each other a ‘little better’), but I’m just not ruling it out. Things between my GESF (green-eyed southern friend) are still going alright, but I think we’ll just be friends over the long term – we get on extremely well, but we’re just too far apart and involved in work and other stuff for things to spark. Story of my life really: Lots of female friends, but I’m single. Oh well, such is life! Saying that, I’ve always got on with women better than blokes (whilst I would class ciaran, Neil and a few other male ODP editors as friends, I’m not able to say that they are ‘proper proper friends’) so perhaps it’s to be expected…

Guess That Movie: XXXIV: Forrest Gump

March 8th, 2003

[Guess That Movie 34]Well, Kymberlie’s certainly taking the lead by recognising so many movies so quickly – she guessed round 33: Blade Runner amazoncom:0790729628 correctly in under ten minutes… That’ll take her up to at least 970 points once I update the high score table.

I haven’t got much time at the moment (as I’m going off to war against Baron Silas Greenback), but see if you can guess which movie this image is from…

“He’s the ace,
He’s amazing,
He’s the strongest, he’s the quickest, he’s the best.
Richy C….

He’s terrific,
He’s magnific,
He’s the greatest secret blogger in the world,
Richy C…”
A: Forrest Gump [Order from] amazoncom:B00003CXA2 . Correctly guessed by Shaun
