Интересный и часто смешной веблог, полностью состоящий из фраз и разговоров, подслушанных на улицах, в кафе, в магазинах итп. девушкой, живущей в Беркли. Очень рекомендуется. Я как-то потерял к нему ссылку очень давно и долго не мог вспомнить, как называется, и найти, а сегодня наткнулся случайно опять.
Ни дня без слова. Сегодняшнее моё слово: pooh-bah. Подсмотрено здесь. Ещё хорошие письма из этой рассылки: 2, 11, 20, 27, 44, 45. On second thought, let me just paste them all here: 2: Subject: obvious (#1)
this was said by a woman down the hall from me who holds a Ph.D. in immunology:
"You know, it's always the case that there are things that if I don't remember to do them, I forget."
for this i give her an honorary Ph.D. in neurology. 11: Subject: But what about Camus?
A Saturday night not long ago, Prince Street at West Broadway, a youngish guy in a long leather coat, into his cell phone, passionately:
"Yeah? Well Sartre was a DICK." 20: Subject: two girls on a train
deep thoughts about hanging out...... "When it's fun, then I have fun but when it's not fun, I have to be funny to have fun."
later on one of the women pulls some hand lotion out of her bag....
"I really thought this was a scent that i would like......crystal blue water."
crystal blue water? to me that's a fancy way of saying fragrance free. 27: Subject: Guest Posting
From Andrew Beaujon, who works in midtown at Spin magazine. This is really funny if you try and visualize it. ----------- I was walking by a residential building near my office; the doorman was standing outside on his own, saying "I am so fucking high" in a strange,whispery high voice. 44: Subject: Godspeed you, Multitask Girl
The quote itself was unremarkable:
"Can't talk right now, I'm having lunch"
It was the way she said it - cell phone unit strapped to head, bowl of noodles or possibly sashimi in one hand, chopsticks in the other, barrelling past my bike on rollerblades. 45: Subject: quote of the day
technically this happened in sf, but it's SO funny!
while walking down the street, two homeys passed me just as i was checking the time on my watch. one of them called out to me:
YO! what time is it, BITCH --i mean-- MISS!
57: Subject: The Channel Thirteen Elevator
Scene: Crowded morning elevator/Hot June day 1) A slight/polite Japanese woman conversing with 2) a woman who works at Thirteen
3) A sweaty Thirteen pooh-bah.
The woman sees pooh-bah
Woman: "Hi, pooh-bah, have you met *** (Japanese woman) Pooh-bah: "No, I don't believe we've met" Japanese woman: (quietly) "Oh yes we have. On 9/11 when we were all trying to get away, you took my cab outside of Grand Central Station."
Pooh-bah exits on his floor and as walking away loudly says "Well, I guess you can't get away with murder in this town."
