A post about Nothing Much Really, just for a change.

I just saw an ad for Nerds FC and it reminded me of the only time I ever actually caught this truly awesome bit of programming. It was a Saturday and it was on repeat and I was just about to change the channel when I realised that I was looking at someone I knew. A guy I went to uni with who endeared himself to me for being, totally pretentiously and quite ironically, a [would be] fop of the highest order. He was even funnier when he was high, come to think of it.
I shall always remember him as being in need of a proper pocket watch but too poor to buy one. I do hope that has changed.

Note that this was probably an ad for Season 2, with brand new nerds. Well worth the watch.

I have a fob watch! Depicts quite a zesty scene, too - remind me to show it to you when you next visit the gin joints of Melbourne...

mclake - it was indeed. Having come across one of the nerds in the latest Quarterly Essay I'm starting to think that these nerdy boys are well worth keeping an eye on...also, of course, because I have an unnatural interest in nerdy manboys.

Tim, ah, fob! Don't I feel foolish now?
What's this 'when next' thing? I've never been to the, allegedly, fair city of Melbourne - I'm not sure that my brain would function at that latitude either.
Also, that kind of opens the door to all manner of 'what's that in your pocket' jokes that I'm way too classy to capitalise on [damn].

FAME!

I love the nerds - I saw them on good game and they won karaoke - lovely.

TimT said...

Even better! Combine your next visit with your first visit! My shout!

Also, I believe the joke you're looking for is, 'Come on! Are you a fop or a flop?'

Enny, I just kinda heart nerds. AND I PUBLICISE THIS FACT [apparently to everyone I know].

Tim, actually, I can make up my own jokes - not that yours wasn't lovely - the point was I was being polite and tactful and...oh never mind.
Right now you can scream yourself hoarse, I hae no desire to go anywhere that's colder than where I am right now.

Cold? I'm sitting in my house with two jumpers on and I'm feeling perfectly warm. 'Snot cold at all.
