Sunday School



Lessons learned on a Sunday:

#1: Coupling (the British version) is the funniest thing on TV.
#2: I'm impatient. Especially in the grocery store. Does the fact that I wanted to knock over all the old ladies traveling approximately one aisle/hour make me a bad person?
#3: For some reason, a freshly un-decorated house looks so sparse.
#4: Brittney got married but NOT to George from Seinfeld.
#5: When you talk in your sleep, sometimes your wife is actually paying attention.

"Does the fact that I wanted to knock over all the old ladies traveling approximately one aisle/hour make me a bad person?"

No, no, and hell no!
Or either that, we're both bad people. Ahem.
Slow people hogging aisle in stores makes me insane.

You didn't actually knock them over did you?

When I was 8 months pregnant, this old cow banged in to my tummy, so I pushed her and she fell over.. I felt so guilty, but i was protecting my little guy!

Ok so I'm BAD!

#1: Never seen it
#2: HELL NO. I swear sometimes their going so slow they'd have to walk backwards to go slower. As long as you don't give in to the urge then you're good to go.
#3: It's the lack of colorful stuff tucked into every available nook and crany that does it.
#4: Brittney who? Huh?
#5: Uh oh, tell us what you said, c'mon you know you wanna ::winks::

Oh god, I couldn't stand Coupling. Damn us Irish & our hatred of "funny" TV ;)

I want to knock over all the old ladies, even the ones that aren't doing 1mph. Does that make me a bad person?

"#1: Coupling (the British version) is the funniest thing on TV."

DUH. Glad I escaped the States before the AMerican version came out. Unfortunately, I don't think a lot fo Americans would "get" the british. It's too bad becasue it's a great show.

"#2: I'm impatient. Especially in the grocery store. Does the fact that I wanted to knock over all the old ladies traveling approximately one aisle/hour make me a bad person?"

You and me both. Sometimes I feel bad, but if I ALWAYS let them get infront of me I'd NEVER GET ANYTHING DONE!!!!

"#3: For some reason, a freshly un-decorated house looks so sparse."

Hrrrm... no comment from by 28sq flat ;)

"#4: Brittney got married but NOT to George from Seinfeld."

What are we talking about here????

"#5: When you talk in your sleep, sometimes your wife is actually paying attention."

Same goes for my boyfriend - I usually hear "Mumph lubber gramph..."

I agree with #1, I have season 1 on DVD yay! waiting for season 2 to be released.

Now I really am curious too what you said in your sleep. Mine is usually nonsense stream of consciousness but sometimes I hold conversations I don't remember. Scary.

mwaha...dan talks in his sleep sometimes, and I have conversations with him. I suppose you should watch what you say about us in your sleep then, huh? :P

1. Hysterical, been watching for a couple of years. Horror, when I heard they were going to do a remake here. Never saw the Amercian version never intend to.

2. Don't EVEN get me started on the topic of grocery shopping.

3. Hoping mine comes down before garbage pickup this week.

4. Could really give a crap whatever that HO is doing.

5. Careful, could get dangerous ;d

so yeah...what WERE you saying in your sleep? hehe

Posted by: tiffanie at January 4, 2004 08:51 PM

What gets me is when they stop right in the MIDDLE of the isle, you can't go around and they have the nerver to look pissed at YOU when you move their cart to the side or say excuse me. Don't get me started, this turn signals and people pulling out in front of me and going at a snails pace are some of my biggest gripes.

Interesting that Britney got married. Publicity stunt I am guessing.

::raises hand:: I am a sleep talker, thankfully my husband sleeps like the dead.

Have you seen The Office? Even better, I swear.

Posted by: feisty girl at January 4, 2004 10:54 PM

Feisty Girl beat me to it, but The Office is the funniest thing on TV period. Don't hate me but I hated coupling...both the Brtitish and American version. Sorry. I know the feeling with wanting to knock over the old ladies, but sometimes it's my crippled ass moving slow. Yeah, I've seen the looks. I do try to stay the hell out of people's way though...so please don't knock me over..I'll probably just fall over anyway. :)

Posted by: Hunter at January 5, 2004 12:29 AM

I absolutely agree with The Office thing.

Funniest. TV show. Ever.

I recommend the DVD if you haven't seen it already ; )

ok, grocery shopping all by itself is a sucky thing. And to add to it, I love the people that make it a family affair, bringing along the 12 kids and all of them spreading out hollering, screaming, poking out lil sis's eye, pulling Bobby Joe's hair. One of the lil tikes running down the meat aisle, poking his grubby lil fingers in every single package he could reach. I actually hollered... 'HEY, let me get ahead of that &^%*(( idiot. Then he can resume poke and pop.' Grocery shopping is a job folks, get there alone, get it done alone and get out alone.

Ok, yea, it's a peeve of mine too... ;-)

Posted by: wlfldy at January 5, 2004 08:05 AM

actually, my preferred way to grocery shop is by going w/david's mom...she's one of those little old ladies, but what *i* do is run around getting everything on the list while she travels ever so slowly through the aisles...she never makes it past the meat section...i've already run up and down the aisles to get everything...more "work" for me, but i just see it as extra exercise ;)

(plus, i love walking really fast around all the people w/cumbersome carts...makes me feel like a gazelle amongst hippos...add to that the fact that i'm taller than half the people down here (and you know i'm short) and it really makes me happy...hehe)

Hey, wipe that puss off your face, Chris! It's nice to see that you are indeed working on that shyness thing :)

And The Office kicks Coupling's ass. However, Coupling kicks nearly everything on American TV's ass.

You actually sleep with your wife? Wow!

Heh! I've been caught out on #5 several times now ;)

Posted by: Amber at January 5, 2004 12:41 PM

LMAO on #4 and 5

Posted by: Rachel in Alaska at January 5, 2004 06:32 PM

LOL... I like *Coupling* and also the hilarious British cooking show "Two Fat Ladies"... British humor cracks me up. And I LOVE the accent. ;-)

#1: Coupling (the British version) is the funniest thing on TV.

[well, haven't seen the brit version of coupling yet...but it makes me gasp in wonder that it has to surpass THE OFFICE (@ BBC) to become "the funniest thing on TV."...Ahem...er, are you sure its funnier than The Office?!!!...coz the way I think is that, if there is anything even a tiny bit funnier than that show, it could actually cause some serious hysteria, putting some poor, unsuspecting viewers to death...lol]
