Overheard at my house

Mum: (of a pub in Britain) They had a bar made out of Richard III's bed.
[info]zeborahnz: Did she go back when she was finished serving?

My life will be over if I don't get those cool boots from Hot Topic!!!1

Mum was just in my room, where we had the following conversation:

Mum: What are those?
Me: Oral syringes for giving my rabbit medicine.
Mum: *laughs a little*
Me: *not sure why* They keep giving them to me so I have about five.
Mum: I shouldn't be such a cliche suspicious mother.
Me: Oh, yeah, they're for shooting up. I use oral syringes because needles are so passe.
Mum: Well I couldn't see what they were!

This song is like the most filkable thing ever.

from metaquotes on lj

A long, long time ago...
I can still remember
How my Gmail used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could delete that spam from France
And, maybe, it'd be empty for a while.

But this afternoon made me shiver
With every reload I'd deliver.
error message on the screen;
I couldn't help but scream

I can't remember if I cried
Couldn't read the world web wide,
But something touched me deep inside
The day that Gmail died.

So bye-bye, to my LJ replies
Firefox said it loaded Reddit
But was 404 denied.
And them Redditors were posting pun thread replies
Singin, "Google til the day that I die.
"Google til the day that I die."

Did you play that Facebook game,
Or do you think that they are lame
If your friends wall tells you so?
Do you believe in settings and styles,
Does the fox in the teahouse make you smile,
And can you teach me set my iGoogle up just so?

Well, I know that you're off twittering
`cause I saw your tweets about pointless things
Like the mold you picked off your shoes.
Twitter is such a giant snooze.

I was a lonely MySpace whore
With a pimped out profile and friends galore,
But I knew I was out of luck
The day that Gmail died.

I started singin,
bye-bye, to my LJ replies
Firefox said it loaded Reddit
But was 404 denied.
And them Redditors were posting pun thread replies
Singin, "Google til the day that I die.
"Google til the day that I die."

On Canada

David: So they have no unmounted police?
Stephen: Well I dunno--
David: That must be difficult on raids in small flats. 'Ow, my head!'
Rich: You should see the squad cars. They're a mess, David, they are a mess.
David: Try and chase a heroin addict up a small staircase on a horse, it's ridiculous.
Alan: All the heroin addicts would know to head for the small staircases.
David: It's like trying to police a country with daleks.
Rich: Which would never work with the disabled access we have now, the daleks can get everywhere.
David: Are you saying that you think that disabled access is a dalek conspiracy?
RIch: .....Yes. That is exactly what I'm saying.

overheard at family dinner

[on Transformers the movie]

Zeborah: The important thing about that movie is--
Sass: Megan Fox is an enormous hypocrite and I hate her.
Zeborah: No, the important thing is, they don't have the theme song!
Dad: I think the important thing is that it ends.
Zeborah: Well no, because that means the people who go to see it eventually come back out.

God my family is so harsh, it's amazing.

Overheard at home

(on tv) Merlin: The future isn't set in stone!
Me: But some points in time are fixed. Like Pompeii.
Dad: But if you go back far enough you could change it.
Sister: Not Pompeii, it's a fixed point.
Mum: According to who?
Me+Sister: Dr Who!
Sister: He should know, he's a Timelord.
Me: And he's the one who blew it up.

[on Canadian Mounties and the difficulties of policing inner cities while mounted on a horse, particularly chasing heroin addicts up small staircases]

"It'd be like policing a country with daleks!"
"Which you never would these days, with all the disabled access they can get anywhere."
"Are you saying that disabled access is a conspiracy of daleks?"
"Yes!"

Oh, mother.

(on me asking my brother if he had the back-episodes of Lost I've misplaced, while the final of Survivor was playing)

Mum: Why do you have Lost?
Me: We watch it.
Mum: But it's so bewildering!
Me: It's like Survivor, Mum, but with polar bears and plot.

So true, Marianne. So very, very true.

"Perhaps," said Elinor, "thirty-five and seventeen had better not have any thing to do with matrimony together. But if there should by any chance happen to be a woman who is single at seven and twenty, I should not think Colonel Brandon's being thirty-give any objection to his marrying HER."

"A woman of seven and twenty," said Marianne, after pausing a moment, "can never hope to feel or inspire affection again, and if her home be uncomfortable, or her fortune small, I can suppose that she might bring herself to submit to the offices of a nurse, for the sake of the provision and security of a wife. In his marrying such a woman therefore there would be nothing unsuitable. It would be a compact of convenience, and the world would be satisfied. In my eyes it would be no marriage at all, but that would be nothing. To me it would seem only a commercial exchange, in which each wished to be benefited at the expense of the other."

"The truth is the most important thing in the world.

And the truth is that I want you, Ferdinand, and if you had asked for me I would have said yes. If it had been a choice I might have said no, but it wasn't a choice and I can't change it. And Walden is lovely and I will try and be happy because I must, but tonight, before I can't anymore, I am thinking of you."

*dies of sad*


Incidentally, am I the only one giggling at CJ's assurance that they "aren't going anywhere!" and people should tell their LJ friends to move there despite how many times they've had to beg just to pay their current bills?

oh my god *tears*

Oh god I literally just had to pause the playback of my video to LAUGH UNCONTROLLABLY. I have tears in my eyes.

"Are you sleeping with my daughter?"
"No!"
"Why? Are you gay?"
"No!"
"Is she not attractive enough?"

Oh maaaaaan. This reminds me of Pepper going "ARE YOU SAYING MY GIRLFRIEND ISN'T OBJECTIFIABLE?" to Kingsley.

You know, he has a point.

Worker #1: So, is everyone coming for break?
Worker #2: Not me, I have to stay and make pirate hats.
Worker #3: That's the worst excuse ever to avoid us.
Worker #2: Well, I cant have a drawer labeled "pirate hats" without pirate hats. That'd just be silly.
