"I love Live. I'm their biggest fan, I go backstage and everything. I like all three of their albums."
"Oh, really? 'Cause I like all four of their albums..."
--A guy bragging to everyone around him at the Live/Counting Crows concert, and an amused bystander
And that, my friends, is what we like to call a "smackdown."
*tsk tsk*
Sheesh, everybody always forgets that there was an album before Throwing Copper. Cool points to folks who can name it.

"She picks up dirt like a vaccum."
--One woman to another in a cafe
So d'you think the woman in question enjoys gossip, or that she has issues with cleaning?

"But before we went out, I had no idea how raccoon-like she was."
--One twenty-something guy to another, standing in front of Blake's Bar & Restaurant on Telegraph
So do you think that means that she wears a lot of dark eye make-up, or that shiny things grab her attention?

"Yeah, but sometimes don't you just feel like saying, 'NO! I don't want to wear orange eyeshadow?'"
"No, because if I did, I'd never work again. Plus, I saw a picture of Giselle wearing it once, and it looked alright. And she was on a magazine cover."
--Two abnormally tall, thin girls in Sephora, a cosmetics and fragrance store
Can I express how badly I wanted to be that girl's mother for just 30 seconds, so I could say "If Giselle was going to jump off a bridge..."

"Listen, you say that Britney Spears is crap, and I say that Limp Bizkit is crap. Let's just agree that we'll never agree, because really we can't BOTH be right."
--One guy to another, walking past me on Durant Ave.
And I think to myself "Oh yes boys, yes you CAN both be right..."

"Like hell! Do you have platonic relationships with ANY of your female friends?"
"Of course I do. *indignant* I have platonic feelings towards ALL of my female friends."
"I do-- I want them all to be healthy, happy, and sexually satisfied."
"That's NOT platonic." *growling*
--A rather cocky sounding 20ish guy, and his dubious female companion, walking down the stairs behind me.

"That's not a sexist remark because I know men paint their toenails too, they just don't tell us about it."
--A very small, elderly woman, lecturing her younger walking companion
You know, if I were a guy, and working in some grand, important, suity and serious job, I'd probably paint my toenails sparkly purple and no one would know.

Hrm, I wonder if this is why they don't make open-toed shoes for men-- to conceal the pedicures?
