Overheard at my work
Coworker 1 : Don't go to Landing Strip.
Coworker 2 : Why not?
Coworker 1 : Dude, Landing Strip is the convalescent home for dancers. Its where strippers go to die.

It was a highly entertaining conversation.

Here are a few quotes I've heard over the past few weeks that have been written down in my notebook of awesomeness. Thus, I will share them with you.

Anthropology professor, upon describing Viggo Mortensen's outfit for an awards show, "Those crazy Scandinavians! You always have to watch out for them; you can NEVER be sure what they'll do next!"

Same professor, a week later in class: "I'm salivating from all of this palpation of my glands"

Asian boy: All those fucking Korean girls look exactly alike!
Asian girl: But-
Asian boy: And they all have American names like Jennifer and Christina. I know twenty Jennifer's and Christina's and they're all Korean.
Asian girl: But you're Chinese!
Asian boy: So? I said all Korean girls look alike, not all Asians look alike. That's not racist.

on the lakeshore/north riverside bus
girl on phone: "well, I want a Gucci wallet, 3 peacoats, a Tiffany ring and a Coach purse. If you pick something I don't like, I won't even want to touch it...my list isn't more expensive, you bought Donna an iPod for $300! I'm sorry, am I pressuring you?"

and the best part?

"I'm not that materialistic. All Asians are materialistic."

I was sitting on campus at UT today when two bros and two bro-ettes walked behind me. I caught the following part of the conversation:

Bro #1: Dude, I'm sweating like a stuck pig.
Broette #1: Pigs don't sweat.
Bro #2: STUCK pigs do.

I should have told him to "make like a tree and get the fuck out." Ah, hindsight.

overheard at Flugtag
A woman, to a bunch of guys in the crowd at Flugtag: If you can visualize this, she was standing with her feet spread out to each side, bending slightly at the knees, and repeatedly making a swift, downward thrusting motion with her hands, starting at her abdomen and moving down past her crotch.

Woman (over and over): My ovaries are falling out! My ovaries are falling out! Do you know what ovaries are!?

IDK if this is that funny, but...
Little girl, probably between 4 and 6 years old: OMG!   A butterfly just landed on my hand!  OMG!!!

Cracked me up because I didn't realize that kids know all the internet/text message slang at such a young age these days.  Made me feel old.

More of a "misheard"
I guess it counts as an overheard, since there were witnesses -

Co-worker: "I haven't heard much recently about Crookshanks, have you?"
Me: "No, not really....oh, wait - who's Crookshanks?!"
Co-worker: "Hermione's cat in Harry Potter."
Me: "Oh - I thought you were talking about Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Nothing gets my attention like a discussion about spongiform encephalopathy!"

edit: I guess I deserved the embarrassment, since earlier I'd been asking him leading/teasing questions about the book - I finished it, but he's only on Chapter 15.

Current Mood: embarrassed
