  • Joe Wylie,

    Yeah, see, I'm calling 'actual sensitive pretending to be fake-sensitive to get laid'.

    I know that I really shouldn't go there, but I'm driven to picture that. The sounds he made as he was deconstructed were a bit like a faked orgasm?

    It does depend somewhat on the thing. As demonstrated ably by a good-looking young man of my acquaintance whose passionate speeches are largely based around the finer details of power supplies. Other engineers' eyes glaze over, let alone the rest of us.

    AC or DC.

  • johnno,

    The fireman's jacket works. Unbelievably, twice. Although in both cases I suspect the poor confused wench wanted to nick it when I wasn't looking. I lent it to a friend, and he confirmed the phenomenon.

  • Emma Hart,

    I've only seen that work for the visiting lecturer...

    Well, it was either this guy's knowledge of post-modernism, or my in-depth understanding of existentialism, which just sounds like the worst party in the world.

    He just played back that Meg Ryan scene with a knowing smirk (from the back of his Harley)

    I thought it was his arse.

    Well, I'm hardly going to point out his knowledge of post-modernism while we're watching him tend bar, am I?

    (The arse may have been a significant factor, it's true. You know what I need? Fewer people who know me.)

    And then there was the dress Marines Jacket. Mmm shiny buttons. Actually makes a great mini dress.

    Wait, was that... No, couldn't have been. But then, hang on, did he go on to quote Shakespeare?

    Is it time for this then?

    This advice is all well and good Emma, but where does it leave a respective male such as myself? Especially one holed up in Timaru for most of the time.

    My memories of any and all sex I had in Timaru bear an element of regret.

    Just sayin'.

  • Tony Parker,

    In my defence, it's by World rather than Hallensteins

    Don't you be dissing the House of H now. It's clothed me and my kids for a while now!

    On a slightly serious note, the ubiquitousness of Hallensteins (and Glassons) clothes on a night out on the town in either Christchurch or Dunedin is one of those eternal things, like the wind in Wellington, Black Caps middle-order collapses, or the Highlanders getting progressively worse with each passing year.

    You could be describing Napier there as well.

    I'm pretty sure I'm describing almost anywhere in NZ, on second thoughts....

    Join the volunteer fire brigade - or at least become chummy enough to borrow their jackets

    But yeah, people who are passionate about things, and enthuse: Hot.

    It's one of the things I most like about young people. They haven't learned to be all cynical, and still hold out hope that people might give a shit what they reckon.

    QFT. It's probably not enough samples to establish a pattern, but is it a risk you want to take?

    But then, hang on, did he go on to quote Shakespeare?

    He was certainly capable of doing so. Wouldn't have done it to impress me, though, as I was doing two post-grad Ren drama courses at the time.

  • Don Christie,

    why it's so easy to spot Stripy Shirts even when they're not wearing stripy shirts.

    If they are untucked they are stripy shirted...and probably also from north of the Bombay Hills.
