You are so right. That's why I am having a (very long and getting longer all the time) break from dating. There's a lot of 'strong willed' men around in the Melbourne dating scene. (Can't understand why they're single, really....)

I can't remember what I was going to say because I have just picked myself up off the floor and rejoined the laptop.
I kid you not, the Word Verification is PROMEN.
At least Blogger doesn't think you're all "strongwilled".

ps - and don't think it went unnoticed that you called her a bitch without saying the word... smooth. very smooth.
WV for this one is MINGGA. I don't know how good your grasp of the vernacular is but I may wet myself if Blogger keeps the gags rolling like this.

Froggy - I find that being "strong willed" besides being an excellent way to prove oneself unpleasant to all and sundry, is also a colossal effort. Why anyone would want to strain himself to be disliked is beyond me but, and this is the important bit, it's indicative of a personality best avoided.
Bec - You see right through me. Rest easy in my grasp of the jargon of the greater Anglosphere. The excellent octogenarian who was the recipient of the rejoinder was -- and probably has been since the mid 1920s -- a "right minger."
You may also be pleased that I derive much pleasure from the reactions wrought by my unexpected use of vulgarities. Not quite as impressive as hearing the Queen saying them, but close.

Trivia moment: did you know Honesty is the Best Policy is the company motto that led the Australian Arnott's Biscuits company to use a parrot on a perch as its logo?
Think about it.
(Nothing funny in WV this time, the glory days are over)

Shula sits, quietly pondering a connection, of any kind, between truth and parrots, and...
turns up nothing.
Perhaps the connection is geogical (WV).
What is it exactly that Joke does, anyway?
Apart from foaming up the Opposition?

I also foam up those who ostensibly agree with me.

"On His Tee is the Best Pol I See."
The T is the shape of the perch; Pol for Polly.
You'd have got there with google in the end...
