Rather than reading the plain, barely literate prose normally served to you here, you can now read the splendiferous verison thanks to those awfully kind people behind the Bright Young Things movie.

This comes to you via Too Fabulous for Words, who I thought had been drinking too much of the cooking sherry over Thanksgiving…

Update: that first link might not work. Here’s a sample:


Last rugby related one today, honest

This Friday night, how about taking the time to settle down with a good book and a bottle of plonk…

Jack and Jill

Friday, November 28th, 2003

Jack was about to marry Jill and his father took him to one side and said,

“When I got married to your mother the first thing I did when we got home was to take off my trousers. I gave them to your mother and told her to try them on, which she did. They were enormous on her and she said to me that she couldn’t possibly wear them, as they were too large. I said to her

“Of course they are too large for you. I wear the trousers in this family and I always will. Ever since that day we have never had a single problem.”

Jack took his father’s advice to heart and as soon as he got Jill alone after the wedding, he did the same thing. He took off his trousers and handed them to Jill and told her to try them on. When she did she said “I can’t wear these, they’re far too large for me.”

“Exactly” Jack replied “I wear the trousers in this family and I always will. I don’t want you to ever forget that.”

Then Jill took off her knickers and gave them to Jack. “Try these on Jack” she said, so he tried them on but they were too small.

“I can’t get into your knickers” said Jack.

Still basking/wallowing in Rugby World Cup glory/self-pity? You might like some Johnny Wilkinson and Martin Johnson wallpaper. Or maybe a chuckle [via Gert] at a current ebay auction. With some very generous bonus offers…

Mensa evaluation

Friday, November 28th, 2003

I’ve just spent an interesting hour or so taking this Mensa test. It brought up some interesting issues, particularly career related, that I’m off to think about.

The Anti-Christ?

I think “the evidence” will please the mathematicians amongst us. Poor bloke. And on Thanksgiving too. It’s not very charitable of us is it? Well she started it.


To everyone celebrating today…

Two new words to sprinkle liberally into the conversation: “manscaping” and “zhuzh” [via Gina Smith].

Apart from the humour in the email, British English speakers will appreciate the link.

I wonder why Richard didn’t include this link in his recent gloat post?

Huwge has written a thoughtful piece about contributing to the WWF.

And I was enjoying a post about Anglesey from Razorhead but got distracted by a list of unusal place names.

Until the next time, my little blogging bunnies.
