Small Talk: Ughngnggh! Ugghhnnn!

I always thought "peter" was a British way of saying "dick." It's not used often in the US, in my corner anyway. 

I'm also pretty hard to offend, but I'm easy to offend others! 😝

It’s also a skill which which I seem to have been blessed , as for ‘Peter’, I’ve honestly never heard of it before, and once being an English schoolboy, I’m pretty sure I’ve heard them all 😁

People used to have the great gift of being able to laugh at themselves. I still do, since I can be an enormous ditz, but better to laugh at yourself before someone else does it.

Maybe you would prefer some from the late 18th century? Yes, I looked them up.  Don't ask why but some are rather poetic.

Pleasure Pivot

Tirly-Whirly

Cupid's Kettle Drums

Bower of Bliss

Shaft of Delight

Gaying Instrument

Bowsprit (pretty good one, actually)

Tally-wag

Whistle and Bells

There are many more, some truly hysterically funny, but that's enough.

Way back in high school, Mrs. Johnson was one of my teachers, now I think of her as Mrs. Penis.

Interesting fact.  She once came into class so upset, because she saw two dogs in the park "doing it".   Okay, maybe that wasn't so interesting.

Which brings up another topic entirely.  Does anyone here know how to play a musical instrument?

Anyone have any interesting hobbies?

I always wanted to learn how to play a musical instrument, but I could never learn to read music.  I am pathetically slow when it comes to learning and memory recall.

I once said Tallywhacker in class, it was english and teacher man was talking about sailing or something and said "tallyho" and I followed with tallywhacker.

I played french horn in junior high, although, I should say I "pretended" to play. Whenever we had performances I didn't actually play my instrument because I didn't want to be the one bleeting when we were at rest. So I mimed playing. Also once saw a kid, Nathaniel but we called him "Nutty" for good reason, drink his spit valve. Might be the grossest thing I've ever witnessed.

I used to play bass guitar at the semi-pro level. I never learned to read music, which is probably why I never got past the semi-pro level. 

Now I just play with myself. 😁

I can play a mouth harp and a kazoo - does that count?

In truth, I can play a little on harmonica (badly) and tin whistle (a little better).  Among my post-retirement goals is learning how to play the guitar and/or bass; I’ve wanted to learn how to play for years.  When I was growing up we never had the money for things like music lessons; now I have the money, but my primary deficit is free time.  😞

Depends on what you consider ‘interesting’, don’t it now? 😄

My primary hobbies at this phase in life would be scuba diving, photography, dragon boating, and music festivals - or were, pre-2020.  🤬

[ETA: Actually I have a ton more hobbies than that, but most are temporarily(?) on the back burner- that whole lack of free time thingie again, donchaknow.]

I’ve simply never had enough free time to seriously focus on an instrument, and the older I get the worse it’s probably going to get.  But I refuse to give up - yet.

So, you took up the organ, so to speak.  Interesting. 

BTW, the commercial section of the forums are good for a few laughs.

I took a Spanish class in high school, I didn't do well at all.  I have enough problems with English.   I have never met a comma that I didn't want to stick somewhere, whether it belonged there or not. 

Anything that requires memorization is something that I am going to fail at.   I would love to have a memory palace, but I wasn't ever able to develop one.  I learn through repetition, which I think is the slowest method of learning.  Just ask Pavlov's dog.🐶

I am sure it will ring a bell.  Well, actually it was Pavlov that rang the bell.🔔

Sirius has some of the former MTV VJs.  Those VJs get on my nerves after awhile.  I just want to listen to music, and not have to listen to them.

i can't remember what Sirius channel I was listening to, but I just have to say, a little bit of Bob Seger goes a long way.   Every song he sings sounds pretty much the same.

Most things I don't think are filmed, some pilots are shot way back and so new shows might actually have a better shot than normal years. I think most shows maybe finished last season but haven't started a new season yet so returning shows may get pushed back. but who knows?

Yesterday I got a lecture for being too nice. ha! at the call center job we are supposed to be nice, we call comcast customers and generally they're very angry and not happy so we are not allowed to cut them off, if they go off on a rant we just let them roll. Obviously if they start cussing us out we are allowed to end the phone call. That is not my problem, my problem is old people. On the one hand they are the only ones who want to take a survey but they are also just soooo freaking chatty. My questions are...on a scale of 1 to 10 how much do you like your cable tv/internet? They cannot, it is beyond their power to answer with a 1 to 10. They have to tell me how their cousins' brothers' neighbors' dog used to dig up the cable line. Yesterday the guy was chasing a wasp out of his garage, I said I could call him back at a better time. Nope, he's good. then he wanted discounts. I don't do that. I literally just take answers 1 to 10. I do have 1 section I can put in a note or special complaint. So he had to tell me about his adopted special needs kids and maybe his wife could get a discount as part of the educational something offered. We are supposed to just answer "I see" or "I understand" to most statements but if the man goes on for 10 minutes I can't say "I see" 56 times. He was searching for the word "buffering" cuz the kids watch the youtube and sometimes it's so slow to load up and so I asked "buffering?" and just said I'll put it in the notes. So my supervisor who listens in had to direct me that by asking about buffering it seems like I'm trouble shooting or by saying I'll put in the notes that he wants a discount for the wife, I'm being too helpful. I'm literally just trying to steer the man back to the survey while being polite. And it's astonishing that I'm nice at all, considering it's my second job and I do it after I do 10 hours at the day job and they do nothing but berate me and yell at me all day. You'd think I'd have frustrations and no fucks to give. sigh.

Yesterday at the printing job the "son in law" sent a file, that's always a trouble area, if it's a friend or family member because I don't get to talk to them like a customer. I get the info "relayed" to me and clearly they are clueless. What size is a normal sheet of paper? 8.5 x 11 and if you were going to make a tri-fold brochure we have templates for that. He sends me something that is 11.6929 x 8.26 so that's not anywhere close to anything. It's almost too big to fit on my normal paper that I run stuff on 12" so it's very tight on the page but my boss is screaming at me that he doesn't know what ruler I'm measuring with because when I said it doesn't fit he's all "it fits fine and it folds fine" where he would not accept that from a random customer, we make them fix their artwork. Many days I want to actively go attract the coronavirus so I can just get the fuck outta dodge.

I never progressed to anything so technical, when I was about 9 or 10, we had a tryout in the school music class, to determine who was suited to which type of instrument, which basically meant that those who could purse their lips sufficiently were allocated a brass instrument, mine being a trumpet.

My illustrious musical career lasted as long as it took me to lift a trumpet off the table by the mouthpiece, which amazingly, who knew? slid out of said trumpet, resulting in a major dent in the trumpet’s bell as it hit the concrete floor. Louis Armstrong, count yourself lucky dude 🙄

I was a bit young for that, but I remember the Bay City Rollers. I like glam rock, and the fashion to me is more of period costumes than actual clothing. The 70s in general have a lot to answer to.

I know who they are, but glam rock makes me want to watch "this is Spinal Tap" which I don't think I've ever seen all the way through and for the longest, longest time I didn't actually "get" because I thought they were a real band. I thought it was a real documentary and I didn't understand that knobs don't go to 11. I didn't understand why it was supposed to be funny.

Spinal Tap was a parody of 80s metal, not so much 70s glam rock. They did such a good job that a lot of people thought they were a real band. Anyone's who has been in a band can relate to at least one gag in Spinal Tap.

I feel bad for them.  There are a lot of lonely people in this world that don't have anyone to talk to.  When they get the opportunity to talk to someone, they want it to last as long as possible.  Who knows when they will get another opportunity to talk to someone?

I agree with you on Sweet.  As for Slade?  Not so much.  The song, Run Runaway, gets on my nerves.  That said, I wouldn't mind if it was 1984 again.  The year that song was released.

Still, Barry Manilow's, Copacabana, has to be one of the worst songs in the history of music.  The Beach Boys',  Kokomo is another song that causes me to run screaming into the night, and not in a good way.

To be fair, "Run Runaway" is about 12 years after their peak. I like their earlier stuff better. Noddy Holder is one of my favorite singers. But, everyone likes the music they like. 

I don't mind "Copacabana" for the silly schlock it is, but "Kokomo" is an abomination. "We Built This City on Rock n Roll" may be the lowest point in modern music, IMO.

I think It was late 80, early 81, I’m still so traumatised by the event it’s a bit hazy, they were ‘New Romantics’. I was 15 at the time so that period was ‘my’ time and apart from the 50’s, early 60’s, that was the best musical period for me, not withstanding that Italian dick 🙄
