dang and blast
Well, i came back to a fully downloaded Spn ep22, only to find it was a bastard of a duff file planted by some fuck-ass jackfucks who have nothing better to do than make people irritated enough to kill them ded. Don't worry, i haven't actually killed anyone. I don't know where they live.

So, while i start again with the downloading, we need some more quotes from my work:

Me: "I can't barter, I get guilty. Sometimes if they're friendly i want to pay them more. It goes the other way. 'Here, have a tip'."
Phil: "Don't eat yellow snow."
Me: "Oh ha ha. We don't get snow here, that's not even useful. You could at least make it something useful. Like..."
Phil: "...?"
Me: "... i can't think of anything."
Phil: "Don't look a gift horse in the mouse. In the mouse??"
Me: "Don't look a gift horse in the mouse!?"
Phil: "It's a strange one i know."
Me: "Is it because the gift horses don't like you looking at their mice? Stop staring at my mouse."
Phil: "That's my mouse..."
Me: "...get your own."

phil: "You're brain is as...erm..."
me: "I thought you were going to say something like 'your brain is as squishy as the rest of you', or something."
phil: "Yes, well, i don't know, i've not squished you recently."
me: "Ahaha, "i've not squished you recently.."."
phil: "I think you'd have noticed... I'd have to do it secretly. Yes, I waited 'til you were asleep on the sofa sometime and then came up and squished you."
mark: "Isn't that illegal?"


[to phil, about a form he just printed for him]
night-freight man: "That's perfect. Just like you Sir."

Nigel: "If we don't do your site well, you'll go around telling people we're cowboys and we don't want that."
Me: ::looks down at cowboy boots::

Dave: "Have you got the menu? What does it look like?"
Nigel: "It's a white piece of paper with text on it, but that's not important right now."

[Dave talking about football and trying to sound important]
Dave: "It was nice when we went there and got the use of a box"
Nigel: "We didn't get a box."
Dave: "Well we walked through a box to get to our seats."
Nigel: "We walked past the box to get to our seats."

::electronic ding::
Phil: [looks around, and up, confused]
Me: "Come in?"
Phil: [to Dave] "Have you got new gadgets or something?"
Dave: "Just this little feller."
Me: "A Mitac Mio! Did you get it turned on yet?"
Phil: "Dave can turn anything on. Women want to be with him, men want to be him."

Phil: "Nigel's staring at me for some reason."
Dave: "That's because you're a freak."

Dave: "And did you let him know this?"
Phil: "Huh?"
Dave: "What?"
Phil: "Eh??"

Me: "Team Design, Activate!"

Phil: "Sociable Bookmark Links, Activate!"

Phil: "I can see all obsticles in my way..."
Me: "Lobsticles??"
Phil: "Yes, lobsticles. They're like obsticles but they're made of lobsters."

[talking about me being happy John Barrowman is marrying his boyfriend soon]
nigel: "why is that something you want?"
me: "why do you guys think lesbian sex is hot? For women.. gay sex is just so hot."
nigel: [looking freaked out] "i'm leaving."
dave: [also looking reaked out] "so am i!"
me: "leaving together eh?"
dave+nigel: "ARGH!"

nigel: "It was a good meeting, if not terribly focused. ::laughs:: Phil would say something, and then the client and i would go off on a little story, and then Phil would say something else, and we'd go off on another story..."
phil: "Yes, and it was like, he'd say "i'm running out of time" and then you'd go off on a little story about running out of time."

::thunk::
::phil peers down at the floor, looking for something::
me: "did a bit of you fall off?"
phil: "i've dropped my ball."

[nigel is putting a golf ball towards a cup, after daves repeated claims of how good he as is at this, since doing it all day. every time nigel gets a good shot, dave says his were better. nigel hits the ball in again...]
nigel: "Wahey!"
dave: "Yeah well. when i hit one it stayed in the cup."
phil: "Yeah well. When i hit one earlier a woman orgasmed next door."


And if i ever wrote a book? It would be about this...

'Gordon Bennett & the Server of DOOM!'
Gordon Bennett is no ordinary cat, he's a cheshire cat, meaning he can't wear red. Despite this disability, and the fact that his claws make an awful sound on his keyboard, he nevertheless manages one of the biggest server centers in the UK and handles thousands of clientelle a week. But one day, Gordon's server rebels, sucks him into its circuitry, and shoves the Scottish cat into a journey that will make him wish he hadn't eaten so many donuts the night before.


Does the phrase 'gordon bennett' translate humourously into Americanese?
Our server guy is called Gordon, is scottish, rotund, and i totally want to make him into a cheshire. The End. Again.

Forget Gordon, you should write a book about the conversations you get into at work!

SPN may just make you cry... I may finally have stopped flailing.

I'm so wound up and anxious to see it, it just might make me cry! Bittorrent says 4 hours. I have to get up at 6am tomorrow, lmao, and i'm going to *have* to stay up late and watch this! I might not have the foritude.. they'll find me collapsed at my desk, soda spilt in a puddle around my face. :P

Forget Gordon, you should write a book about the conversations you get into at work!

lol, my mum keeps saying that. but i'm no good at writing about it, i tried. i can entertain my parents with the stories at dinner, and i write the quotes, but beyond that it all goes to heck!
vespurrs From: vespurrs Date: May 18th, 2007 10:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have decided to watch SPN over again from the beginning before getting into the goodness that is the season finale for season two. And also, because I missed most of season two which would probably make it have less of an impact on me. But I'm slowly working my way through, woo-ha!
knights_13 From: knights_13 Date: May 18th, 2007 11:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
YAY!!! There are some good episodes in Season 2. Much worth watching! =D

We will convince you that Supernatural is MUCH better than CSI! *nods*
vespurrs From: vespurrs Date: May 18th, 2007 11:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Good eps in Season one, too. ;)

Well, I will readily admit that the Brothers Winchester are more pleasant to look at than some of the people on CSI, sure. :P But wow, CSI is one of those fandoms that I can't walk away from yet!
knights_13 From: knights_13 Date: May 18th, 2007 11:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh yes, that there was! =D

And I most definitely have to agree with you there. Dean or Grisim? Really, there is no contest!!! ;P (Is Grisim in CSI or is that a different show...?).

Hmmmm, you don't have to walk away, Supernatural should just be show priority number one. There's Dean, There's Sammy and really good eps and plot. Have I mentioned Dean and Sammy? lol
vespurrs From: vespurrs Date: May 19th, 2007 12:12 am (UTC) (Link)
:) I'm on the third episode at this point. I envision my weekend will be filled with watching as much SPN as is... INhumanly possible! ;)

Now, I keep telling you, dear - SAMMY. I am all about SAMMY! Who is this 'Dean' that you speak of? :P And yep, Grissom is on CSI. But so is Nick Stokes. ;)

Hey, I'm catching up on it! Slowly but surely, yes indeed! :) And I think you might have mentioned them once or twice!

*hugs you tight* Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I'm going to try to catch up on comments this weekend.
knights_13 From: knights_13 Date: May 19th, 2007 12:21 am (UTC) (Link)
Supernatural GOOOOOOOO-OOOOOOOOOD!!!! =D

PFFT!!! Sammy is cute in his own way, but it's DEAN dude!!! lol
Dean has such wonderful angst and such issues with self-worth. You just wanna huggle him to death. Or whump him as much as possible! =D

Hee! Well, if you forget, just let me know and I shall mention again. lol

*hugs you back* No worries, I really haven't been around much either. I will be around tonight but then I work the next four days and it's hard to say if I will be on after work or not and if I am here, it's even harder to say if I will be coherent enough to make comments. lol *hugs*
vespurrs From: vespurrs Date: May 19th, 2007 04:57 am (UTC) (Link)
I took a break to go next door and chat with the neighbors at their bonfire, but I'm now up to episode five of season one, yay! :)

And PFFFFFFFFFFFT right back atcha! ;P *rolls eyes* Sammny has just as much angst! And he's got the puppy-dog eyes! I'll give you this, though - if that proposed Knight Rider movie EVER gets made, Jensen Ackles would make a really good Michael Knight, methinks.

I think you may need to mention it again. ;)

LOL, I won't worry so much then. I really just haven't felt up to doing a whole lot. And guh, another uninspiring TM challenge. *sighs*
knights_13 From: knights_13 Date: May 19th, 2007 12:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh the next episode is Skin if I recall correctly. Very good episode! =D One of my favorites still.

How was the bonfire? Last night would have been awesome for that.

Nah, Dean has so much more to angst about than Sam. On top of all the shit Dean and Sam deal with, Dean has no self worth and feels responsible for all of Sammy's angst too. *cuddles poor Dean* Oh yeah, JA would make a good MK - but I doubt he has time to do it. It will likely get made into a silly parady, which would just suck!

Okay... There's DEAN and Sammy. lol

*huggles you* Oh yeah, wasn't that TM challenge just... NOT!? Logan read that and asked me if they were kidding.

Anyway, Yo-ho yo-ho it's off to work I go... *whistles away*
vespurrs From: vespurrs Date: May 21st, 2007 06:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
That was a very good episode, yep! One thing I'm finding by going back and re-watching them all is that I've actually seen a lot more of Season One than I had thought. Apparently I really only missed the tail-end of the season. Season Two is pretty much a bust though - I think I've seen maybe three eps, total. I'm also finding, as I mentioned to Jaki, that SPN is a really well-written show. Lots of action, good pacing, the leads are brilliant in both acting and their chemistry, lots of excellent one-liners. The only problem I have is that time seems a bit... relative, in the SPN universe. Six hours seemed to pass by awfully quickly in 'Bugs', for instance! ;) Still, my Sammy-muse is starting to rumble again...

It was a very nice fire, and the conversation was really pleasant. It's nice to talk to adults every once in a while! :P Brent and I have been diligently working to get our yard into shape and we may have a cookout/fire here soon, I think. Um, those two things will hopefully be unrelated!

Hmm... I dunno. I guess I can see some of that, yes. And being able to watch the show in order is bringing that more to the fore. When I watched before, I saw most of the eps haphazardly, out-of-order, so it wasn't as clear. Still, I prefer Sammy's sensitivity on his sleeve as opposed to Dean's blustering. Just me, I guess.

LOL!

*snugs* Um, yeah. The past few TM challenges have just been... yeah.

*hugs more*

Sammy is cute in his own way, but it's DEAN dude!!! lol

AaaaaMEN! to that. Dude.
pheral From: pheral Date: May 19th, 2007 03:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
SAMMY. I am all about SAMMY! Who is this 'Dean' that you speak of?

Aiieeee! Begone, with your blasphemy!!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I've been ejected from Pheral's LJ! The pain, it BURNSSSSSSS!!!!

;)
pheral From: pheral Date: May 19th, 2007 04:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
Awesome idea!! I am so pleased when people have the strength to watch in order, it is going to make *so* much more sense and impact when you do it that way. I hate when people watch the finale first, and don't get to experience those wonderful surprises and cliffhangers. I loved watching the last ep of s2 without knowing anything about what was going to happen.. so much more exciting.

Now watch faster so you can watch the finale, faster faster! Come on, for gods sake, there are 24 hours in the day! >:P
vespurrs From: vespurrs Date: May 21st, 2007 06:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
LOL, I'm very nearly finished with the first season - I'm hoping to be all caught up by next weekend, if not sooner! :D
knights_13 From: knights_13 Date: May 18th, 2007 11:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
I wish to come work with you! *nods*

K, I wait to make comments on Supernatural until you've actually seen it... So, have you seen it yet? ;P
pheral From: pheral Date: May 19th, 2007 04:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
You must! No, wait, we were going to set up the dog kennels. Well, we could set it up in the empty lot next to our building! Aha. Plan.

I have seen ep22 now, and i shall say this: wow!! Am going to post later this evening, and catch up on Flist comments on the ep too. Want to watch again at some point, and analyse, and soak it all in, and flail some more... :P
knights_13 From: knights_13 Date: May 26th, 2007 03:49 am (UTC) (Link)
*nods* That sounds like a plan! =D

I'm sort of all over the place with comments. I'm hoping to be all caught up again tomorrow. *fingers crossed*

I SO want to work in your office. Can I post myself and the elds over there with the computers and get a job? Hmmm? Please? *puppy eyes while chewing nonchalantly on Wolverine*
pheral From: pheral Date: May 19th, 2007 03:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Wheee, yesss! The dogs can be a resident security feature, and you can boost staff morale by introducing new shows to us all and interrupting work regularly with walkies and squeaky-toy time.

::reaches for a wolvie pec:: Mmmmm....

Ooo, morale boosting! *beams*

*grins* You have too much fun at work!

I don't get Gordon Bennett as funny, but I don't get a lot of things. I'm a little dense that way, so it might be a Shady thing not an Amercan thing.
pheral From: pheral Date: May 19th, 2007 03:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ahaaa! I had a feeling you guys didn't use that expression. Blast. Guess i'll just market the book over here then!

'gordon bennett' is a phrase we say to communicate surprise, like saying 'flipping heck'. I don't know where it comes from, maybe from 'god and' something, because it sounds a bit like that. Anyway, it makes the name Gordon Bennett kinda funny! :/
mzzgoddessblue From: mzzgoddessblue Date: May 19th, 2007 12:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
i want to work where you work.

Nigel: "It's a white piece of paper with text on it, but that's not important right now.

bwhahahahahahahhahaa!! love it.

and i think the last time i heard 'gordon bennett' used like that was in a Goodies episode.

Or was it EastEnders? Hmm....
pheral From: pheral Date: May 19th, 2007 03:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hahaha, that particular theme of joke gets quite a regular airing in our office. :P

Definitely a British thing then i think, gordon bennett, Shady didn't know it at all. I guess my book shall just have to become hideously famous in the UK only, then. :P
mzzgoddessblue From: mzzgoddessblue Date: May 19th, 2007 03:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
so who the heck IS gordon bennett?? i take it he's an english 'celebrity', that is used in fun? I understand it when it's said (like a curse, or kinda like "holy hell" or "omg!" or something like that...and i have to admit i used it once or twice in my younger days mainly because no-one over here understood what i was going on about...LOL)
pheral From: pheral Date: May 19th, 2007 04:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
No no, no celebrity, just a curse. It might come from 'god and' something or other, as it kinda sounds like that. You're right about the context though, it's definitely a kind of 'flipping heck!' type thing. I should do some research into its origins now...
mzzgoddessblue From: mzzgoddessblue Date: May 19th, 2007 04:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
wait....gordon bennett isn't real????


omg. i thought he was like ... perry como or something!! for years! you've just shattered one of my childhood myths.

i need to lie down.
pheral From: pheral Date: May 19th, 2007 04:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
Wait, don't despair, stand up! I don't want it to be a person (because that screws with my title, i don't want to name my character after someone else dammnit) but i've found some articles to suggest it was. A very old, eighteenth century chap, or something. But there are a load of other articles saying other stuff, some saying it just comes from a rehashed other swearword chinese-whisper style... maybe no-one knows. But i'm sure you're safe to continue believe it was a real bloke. Just not a modern celebrity.
mzzgoddessblue From: mzzgoddessblue Date: May 19th, 2007 04:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
wow.

LOL

i can't believe it. i honestly thought he was some ol' fart from the BBC radio or something. Heh.

Before one of my mates left, our conversations used to break the bimbo from head office.

For some reason, she doesn't find the demand to ride me like a miniature pony as amusing as I do.

Then there's my other mate who introduced a rather dim and self-centred office chick to the word felch. He told her it meant something entirely different and she proudly used her newly expanded vocabulary with friends who still haven't stopped laughing.
