It was all just one big malapropism

Over the last few weeks, I have been on a few dates with an ex-priest who is now a counsellor. It seemed to be showing some promise, especially the number of potential puns such as:

"I am dating an ex-priest. We have a lot in common because I am an ex-nun."
"I am seeing a counsellor."

But alas, it seems I bit more than I could chew off the wrong end of the stick.

That is, he told me he liked to hug and kiss me but wasnt sure about the sex part.

Never mind, next time I will burn that bridge when I get to it.

bright star review

saw Bright Star this week - a very awkward film to watch at first (I think intentionally so) but it sucked me in. How refreshing to have a character with bad fashion sense in a period drama! This was one of many nice touches. Not perfect but emotionally involving.

toothless attraction

Just did a gay tramp (gay bushwalk? that still sounds dodgy) today. Twas gorgeous, though was having to fend off the advances of a randy seventy-year-old.

I knew I was in for trouble when I told him my name and he said: "Nick - Nick with a big dick!" Its not exactly the best way to start a life-long platonic friendship.

"I am not in this group for sex," I said to him at one point, politely omitting the suffix "with you".

"Im not in this group for sex either," he replied. "Though it has happened a few times."

religious debate

Got into a debate at work about Jesus - now how did I let that happen?

I was saying how much I hate the hackneyed "If only we _really_ did what Jesus intended" argument.

I think if we all followed Jesus´ example we would all be paranoid, delusional and Oprah. (Note the first two adjectives might have been redundant.)

Anyway I voiced my opinion that the whole "do as you would be done by" thing kind of misses the point, worse still it keeps getting misapplied with disastrous consequences. (For example, the dreadful Amelie.)

Anyway one of my colleagues kept saying to me "but love is important" (he is not religious btw).

My comeback is to quote the great prophet Tina T: "Whats love got to do with it?"
