Exactly like towels.
Who has matching towels? Always makes me think of Sleeping With The Enemy. If digressing into modern jargon, I'd like to consign 'blue sky thinking', 'counter intuitive' and 'thinking outside the box' to the fires of hell.
Naah, just a moderate flirt. If I am not mistaken you're on a different continent. I've tried that before and found that relationships over such a huge distance require a lot of effort from both sides and therefore tend to not work in the long run. Frankly, I am looking for a long-term relationship atm, and preferably with someone from my continent.
But a bit of just-for-fun flirting can't harm
Jim, I very much agree with your interpretation of "the customer is always right". In Germany we say "the customer is king" - contrary to the British saying the German one doesn't imply that the customer might be right. It only means we should treat them respectful and ought to understand that they have certain expectations (still, we are a republic, so kings don't really have much to say here).
"Dance like nobody's watching."
I prefer to dance like everybody is watching and they're all jealous of my sick moves.
Exactly - if nobody's watching, then I'm sitting down and reading a book
That line about if you're not a liberal at 20, you have no heart, and if you're not a conservative at 30, you have no brain.
Mostly because I only hear it from smug Fox News viewers.
I loathe with a perfect passion the saying "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve". For similar reasons I dislike "They call it global warming, but it's God's Warning".
Oh, and people's obsession with slapping -gate onto everything remotely controversial makes me slightly murderous.
Dammit! *chloroforms Rhubarbodendron who is then put into a FedEx box and sent to Bora Bora*
So teacake...how you doin'?
To be fair (assuming anyone cares about being fair to Fox), they didn't invent it. That phrase has been around since the 19th century at least.
Now THAT I can agree with.
I hate the "War On---." FFS, people! Someone disagreeing with your or even just not being bug-eyed-obsessed with a thing the same way you are doesn't mean they've declared "war." Stop saying it; it's childish.
But.. but.. I've been strategically planning teacakegate for a year now!
I'm good sweetie but you fail my Lady Gaga test.
Does it involve your breakfast cereal? Because then it might be teacakecornflakegate.
That does come with added assonance which can only be a good thing..
^ I hope I didn't make you angry with that last sentence. Or in other words, causing teacakecornflakegatehate.
Not sure exactly what that means, but thank you for the compliment.
But that's MORE assonance!
I like an optimist.
Kind of like 'God only helps those who help themselves'.
thank you! Being a big fan of Methos (from the Highlander series), who is reported to hide there when he needs a time out, I've always wanted to go there but lacked the money.
I agree, Nick, those two sayings are not exactly realistic (particularly from teh point of view of an atheist).
We Germans are more pessimistic when we say "of friends in an emergency, 1000 weigh an ounce" [Freunde in der Not gehn tausend auf ein Lot] (meaning that if you need them, the vast majority of people you thought of as friends will turn you down).
Still, I was lucky enough to prove this proverb wrong in the past.
Ugh. I cringe when someone says that...
^Does anyone actually say that anymore?
Just preparing them for the military, that's all.
