Modern Dating

A man is dining in a fancy restaurant and there is a gorgeous redhead sitting at the next table. He has been checking her out since he sat down, but lacks the nerve to talk to her. Suddenly she sneezes, and her glass eye comes flying out of its socket towards the man. He reflexively reaches out, grabs it out of the air, and hands it back.
"Oh my, I am so sorry, " the woman says as she pops her eye back in place. "Let me buy your dinner to make it up to you, " she says. They enjoy a wonderful dinner together, and afterwards they go to the theatre followed by drinks. They talk, they laugh, she shares her deepest dreams and he shares his. She listens. After paying for everything, she asks him if he would like to come to her place for a nightcap and stay for breakfast.They had a wonderful, wonderful time.
The next morning, she cooks a gourmet meal with all the trimmings.The guy is amazed! Everything had been SO incredible! !! ! You know, " he said, "you are the perfect woman. Are you this nice to every guy you meet? "

"No..." she replies. . . . . . "

(Wait for it...)

(It's coming...)

The suspense is killing you, isn't it?

She says: "You just happened to catch my eye"

I want a man who's handsome, smart and strong
One who loves to listen long.
One who thinks before he speaks
One who'll call, not wait for weeks.
I want him to be gainfully employed,
And when I spend his cash, be not annoyed.
Pulls out my chair and opens my door, massages my back and begs to do more.

Oh!? For a man who makes love to my mind
And knows what to answer to "how big is my behind?"
I want this man to love me to no end,
And always be my very best friend.

I want a deaf-mute nymphomaniac with huge boobs who owns a liquor store and a boat.
I know this doesn't rhyme and I don't give a sh*t.

Prisoners use video game to relive crime

Telegraph News Prisoners use video game to relive crime

Which just goes to show that Violent Crimes cause video games!

"The use of high-tech goods, such as PlayStations, as privileges is common practice across many prisons and has been proved to be a successful method of generating a positive response from prisoners."
Duh! How negative would you be if all you had to do each day was eat free food and play video games... (OK so the "night-life" might not be so attactive...)

Finally! The offside rule explained for girls...

You're in a shoe shop, second in the queue for the till.
Behind the shop assistant on the till is a pair of shoes which you have seen and which you must have.
The female shopper in front of you has seen them also and is eyeing them with desire.
Both of you have forgotten your purses.
It would be totally rude to push in front of the first woman if you had no money to pay for the shoes.
The shop assistant remains at the till waiting.
Your friend is trying on another pair of shoes at the back of the shop and sees your dilemma.
She prepares to throw her purse to you.
If she does so, you can catch the purse, then walk round the other shopper and buy the shoes.
At a pinch, she could throw the purse ahead of the other shopper and, "whilst it is in flight" you could nip around the other shopper, catch the purse and buy the shoes.
Always remembering that until the purse has "actually been thrown" it would be plain wrong to be forward of the other shopper.

There you go, poppet!

IT's here! IT Crowd has arrived

Channel4.com - IT Crowd [Windows media]


Stick up for Real Women!

Delia's Way #1
Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.
The Real Women's Way #1
Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for God's sake.
You are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it anyway.

Delia's Way #2
To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
The Real Women's Way #2
Buy Smash mashed potato mix and keep it in the pantry for up to a year.

Delia's Way #3
When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking tin, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.
The Real Women's Way #3
Tesco's sell cakes. They even do decorated versions.

Delia's Way #4
If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a potato slice.
The Real Women's Way #4
If you over salt a dish while you are cooking, that's tough sh*t. Please recite with me the Real Women's motto: "I made it and you will eat it."

Delia's Way #5
Wrap celery in aluminium foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.
The Real Women's Way #5
It could keep forever. I don't eat it.

Delia's Way #6
Brush some beaten egg white over piecrust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.
The Real Women's Way #6
Sainsbury's frozen pie directions do not include brushing any egg whites over the crust.

Delia's Way #7
Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.
The Real Women's Way #7
Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and drop it in 8 ounces of tequila. Drink the tequila. You might still have the headache, but you probably don't care anymore?

Delia's Way #8
If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dishwashing gloves.
They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
The Real Women's Way #8
Go ask mister tight arse cutelegs, single neighbour to do it for you.

And finally the most important tip -
Delia's Way #9 Freeze leftover wine into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
The Real Women's Way #9
Leftover wine????!!!

Jan doesn't like King Kong

IMDb user comments for King Kong (2005)

I worked in Germany with Jan.

I kind of agree with Jan, King Kong was a piece of CG spectacular. It was just too slapstick for me. I guess Peter was trying to capture slapstick nature of 1920's and 30's movies...

The movie is entertaining, but it's "American fodder", brain-off.
