Small talk? Love it or hate it?
I had a colonoscopy yesterday, as part of a free NHS check thing. So while I'm lying there with a camera up my arse, they attempt to relax me with small-talk! Yeah. Me! Haha. I've been recently diagnosed with ASD, which explains why I've hated the dreaded small-talk all my life. But I just wished they'f left me alone to ponder the absurdities of life... Anyone else hate the dreaded ST? ... See MoreSee Less
Yup. Brits can't stop talking about the weather anyway so its impossible to avoid but so bloody pointless. I also hate being asked questions about me and I'm really curious about other people so I generally end up sounding like an inquisitor.
I forget when people say 'how are you?' that what I'm required to say is 'fine' - not give a full medical history. I also like reciting facts and/or venturing an opinion. All pretty fatal in the small talk arena. But I just don't know what to say, or I just die from the utter banality of it all. Sometimes I just say silly things on purpose. Or make 'jokes'.
What sort of small talk? Nice weather we are having ? Do you come here often? Did you see Brighton play at home last week?
What do you do? How long have you been living in Brighton? And my favourite, after I'd stumbled through a few questions, 'what Antivirus software would You recommend?' - I had a camera up my arse FFS! I didn't even bother answering that one 😂
I know it's difficult, but they are trying to take your mind off the procedure. Just say I prefer not to talk. Here colonoscopies are done with general anaesthetic.
Fascinated to learn that even medical staff, on sticking a camera up your backside, then immediately decide (presumably based on visual evidence) to engage you in conversation. Many of us have held for years that you talk out of your arse. Now, Doctors agree. Win.
I'm a nurse. A District Nurse-got the qualification and everything- hate small talk. Hated it when the late hubby was ill, hate it when colleagues try it on people.
I don't know what ASD is. Is it some kind of corner shop trying to undercut ASDA?

No but I like French fries, does that count?
Le piscine.... La maison.... Ok I'm all out ....
I am living proof that the use of the text book tricilore to teach French at secondary school was a bad idea
I've got about as far as ménage à trois 😂
Expertly translated by Guillaume Bc-trad 😀
Ooh a menage a trois with a femme fatale perhaps?
Papa fume une pipe
Mon Oncle est dans le jardin
Yeah I can read it. Probably a translation of the original?
Yummy curry last night: Onion Bhajis, Bhuna Prawn starters with Chicken Jalfrezi as the main - with added Sag Aloo and mushroom pillau ❤️❤️❤️ Courtesy of my local house of curry, The Ganges. Nice!! Those loverly lagers are not mine tho as I've stopped the drinking 😮. Fantastic meal, although it sounds like my tum is attempting whale song this morning 😂 ... See MoreSee Less

Frankie Boyle, spot on as usual...
Frankie Boyle has some scathing words for the Conservative party leadership, with Michael Gove and Michael Fallon singled out. He tells Owen Jones the Tories lack any talent to replace Theresa May after her disappointing performance in the general election. ... See MoreSee Less

I prefer beaver
I don't really have the stamina to trawl through all the seductive otters and other stuff that Google would doubtless throw up, should I be unwise enough to try a search. I am therefore willing to accept that this otter is, precisely what they claim it to be. If anyone is prepared to do the proper otter research in this field, I would be interested in viewing the results.
Watched 'Steve Jobs' the 2015 movie. It's got a hefty 86% on IMDB and exists as a series of conversations, arguments and interactions before some of his more memorable product launches.
My knowledge of the man is sketchy and I was hoping for something that added a bit of meat to the bones of what I know about him.
But this movie was also sketchy. And was more about the myth of the man than about him. A sort of badly-coloured in version.
Jobs is a fascinating individual and I suppose a traditional biopic starting with him and Wozniak in their garage moving predictably towards his death would've been boring. This was a brave attempt to deal with the man in an interesting fashion. But it was just too light on the detail.
I would've preferred a movie that focused on one of interesting periods rather than skating over nearly over them.
Great performances all round. But was left with a feeling of... I need more depth. This was nothing more than a stylish veneer. ... See MoreSee Less
Ah, really? I don't get the hagiography at all. He had the revolutionary idea that a useful thing could also be desirable. Big fucking wow. That's every desirable thing ever. Imho, obviously
just think of him as a brilliant guy with an unpleasant personality and a bit of a Jesus complex...not sure if that's fair or not but my impression--
Haha! The Queen has come to parliament looking like an EU flag. The message is clear, Ma'am #remain ... See MoreSee Less
