I only ever share jokes and cheap plugs with people on Twitter. I'll sometimes share a random, weird thought. The most inane thing I probably share on it as it relates to my day is a movie I'm watching or album I'm listening to. If only to see if someone responds. You never know where you might get a good conversation from.

I have gotten to talk to my favorite adult film performer on Twitter though, so that's neat.

My blokey's not here tonight, for the first time in two or three weeks... weird how quickly you get used to someone being around. The house feels half empty and I feel lost and pathetic. :lol:

I live in a small block of four flats. This morning I heard same hammering coming from a neighbouring flat. When I left for work, I found two men huddled above the open manhole cover for the water drainage, wondering how to turn off the water supply for 'these flats'. What the...?!? You can't just turn off the water supply for 4 flats unannounced at 8.30 in the morning, because you're doing stuff in your own flat?!?

It's amazing how with two-bit rhetoric people who are the true victims can be portrayed as the guilty ones and vice versa, and some people swallow that like cheap wine!

I read somewhere that one person thought that the Queen visiting 10 Downing Street to observe a meeting was 'a sign" and after that she would be sent to a bunker in the Antarctic?! :?:

I think the worst joke that the pre-columbian people played on us is introducing us to tobacco. Imagine the countless lives that have been cut short thanks to that crap.

I was wondering if the world would end with a bang or a whimper...

Been a very confusing few months for me!

Currently puzzling me the most however is why the client wasn't told the court session was all day when everyone else knew so now I'm sat here like a muppet on my own waiting for a mcdreamy to break for lunch. All of this because the man wants to see his kids. It's fucking retarded!

Weird line from Rebecca from Season 7 Episode 17 of Cheers

After locking lips for an easy 6-8 seconds, Sam asks something like "What category am I in? Yes? No?" He gets no answer so he storms out.

Rebecca (gasping): Definite maybe!

Sam(walking back in): I heard that! I'm a maybe!

Sam(calling to bar):She thinks I'm a maybe!

Rebecca (chasing after him): No no, I said you kiss like my uncle Abie!



DiceMan: No wonder you eat so much.



Really though, probably just a bad improv or something. Still, had to rewatch to make sure I heard right.

I remember that episode very well and I am pretty sure that that's what she said. I don't think it's an improv. because that's the kind of crazy things that Rebbecca does also this time she adds "I said I think you gave me rabies"...
She was desperate to find something that sounded like "Definite maybe" and that's all she could come up with. I am sure that there are other times when she does that kind of thing, my memory needs a little triggering though.

There's another line that she says several times throughout her part of the series: "Is it been that long?" with a weeping voice. Each time someone, often Sam, reminds her how long it's been since (she had sex with a man, she was stuck as manager of Cheers etc...)
Rebbecca is depicted as an highly unstable bipolar personality with sometimes questionable hygiene (unlike Diane for example who was always impeccable, even drunk), immature, amoral, resentful... etc...

About her questionable Hygiene, off the top of my head I can count at least five or six occasions (including the big finale) when she becomes slattern. That's the thing with her, each time she gets into a depressive state she starts neglecting her ablutions and she keeps the same clothes on several days in a row... That's really a Rebbecca thing that no other woman on the show ever does. I say no woman because Norm did it once when he pretended to be away in Bora-Bora and was in fact living instead in Sam's office.

Confused over everyone I like seeming to abandon me at the moment. Also got confused in a shop today, forgot my pin number, my other card was rejected then spent 3 minutes looking for the change in my many many pockets.... Got a lot of people angry in the queue too I reckon!
Halfway up my stairs and I remember my pin number, shout bazinga and scare my Polish neighbour, who I hadn't noticed. Think he was confused too!
