Word of the Day
Overheard (last night) on Marylebone High Street:
Female #1: Just saw Borat. Self-satisfied crap.
Female #2: Really? But the reviews were so good?
Female #1: I should have gone to the French one about the piano teacher. What is it with the French and pianos by the way?
Female #2: Not sure. But, what I have always wondered is, how French women can wear scarves without them falling off one shoulder?
Female #1: Dunno. Hey, are there any Spanish wines on sale in Tesco's this week?
Female #2: No, think it's a cheap Chardonnay left over from summer.
Female #1: I always take to drinking more after the 15th of October. I call it my melacoholic season. A Croatian guy told me that once and it has stuck with me. Melancholic and alcoholic, get it?
Female #2: Yeah, I am drinking more too. Think it is because you feel entitled with Christmas on the way?
Female #1: Na. For me, it's the realisation that I live on a small island that is going to be covered with greyness for six months.
Female #2: I agree. Why is everybody calling grey the 'new black' this year? The fashion world is so conspiratorial.
