Continuing from the previous post, after that enjoyable time at the bookstore, I went to Virgin Megastore. In the past, I'd never really spent much time in this store, but, two months back, I just wandered in out of curiosity, and found it a great TP, besides finding bargain comedy serials like Coupling, at a heavily discounted price. There's books(ahem!), music, movies, photo frames, tees, watchesand lots of other trendy stuff. Plus, there's the merchandise that Hollywood brings out when a movie's being released, and once the hype and hoopla is over, they sell it off dirt-cheap, if it gets sold of course.:) Let me just say-it's a 'different'store, something like what Planet M's trying to emulate there..somewhat successfully..would love to franchise such a nice outlet.:)Want to see more? Here's the link for their stores on this side of the world.
I'm really hooked to comedy serials...as I've said in the past- hardly see any movies on video these days...it's better to see these 1/2 hr max serials, have a good laugh and generally look at the brighter side of life for the rest of the day, or, during visits to dreamland.
So, anyway, let me share a dialogue(I did put part of it on my FB page) from the serial- the two wives are in the kitchen, discussing:
Wife 1(Doug's wife) is bugged because hubby said something she did not like: They should put a device on husbands that gives them a shock when they something stupid.
Wife 2:(Ray's wife): Yea, right- not a shock to kill, but just enough to make him bite down on his tongue.
Wife 1: Yes. Like 'Honey, did you put gain a little weight?'...and the device would go Bzzzzzz.
Wife 2: Yes- we could have a little remote control that we could keep on a keychain.
Wife 1: A silver keychain.
Wife 2: With initials.
...and so the dialogues go on....said so naturally that I couldn't help having the laugh of the day. And, they show the poor hubbies in the next room, with Doug trying to decide whether to put on the TV set to watch his baseball game, and worried that wifey might get annoyed.(Yea-both Doug and Ray are pretty docile most of the time in front of their wives, even though they practice tiger-y thoughts and moves when they are not there.
Believe me, if you haven't seen these serials or Seinfeld, you must...they're never too old hat for any age.
Once in a while, it's time for an Ugh joke. So, here goes:
Two male flies are buzzing around, cruising for good looking females. One spots a real cutie sitting on a pile of cow manure and dives down toward her. "Pardon me" he asks, turning on his best charm... but is this stool taken?"
And, an office joke:
When the staff goes out after work, they talk about football or basketball. When Middle management gets together, they talk about tennis or baseball. Top management discusses golf. Conclusion: The higher up you are in management, the smaller your balls are.
