Re: People who talk about the telly

DB, perhaps you could look up two more things on the intertubes: 'drama queen' and 'narcissist'.

I'll do that as soon as I've looked up "humourless" and "jealous".

Always travel off the beaten track. If it looks touristy, trendy, cool, full-up or full of "vactationers", just say NO!
The primary reason that although I would really love to see the architecture in Venice, I have never been there!

Hmmmm, from the intertubes of Wikipedia:
Quote:
Healthy narcissism represents the functioning of narcissism as an emotional-immune system for safeguarding the familiarity and the well-being of the individual against invasion by foreign sensations
Could we assume that some of these foreign sensations may actually be bad ones...he-he.

Who's the sad **** here?



I don't like television documentaries, as they're all aimed at four year olds.
I finish work at 11pm, go out into the city until 3:30, catch a cab and go home to chill with my girl till the wee hours. Thats sad, is it?
Not all of us are fat old men who go to bed at 9 sharp every night, DB you goddamn invalid.

Re: People who talk about the telly

Please close this thread, it is completely idiotic and has no value other than some virtual I-am-better-than-you-are. Besides, there is a good movie on the television; I need to concentrate and wont be able to post.

You've hit the nail right on the head!

I can't remember ever having watched a television documentary that didn't have me throwing things at the telly in fury at how inane and shallow the whole business was.

It's even worse if you actually know something about the subject they're covering. You find yourself wondering if the researchers ever bothered to leave their Facebook and espresso machines long enough to look anything up.
Throwing things at the TV or shooting at the TV is very dangerous and not advisable at any time. Khaddafi once shot at his TV when Sadat was speaking. The thing almost killed him. Rumours say that the Americans tried to sell him a TVset exploding when being looked at angrily !

If you wish to visit Venice, do it in October. I will never forget my 20th birthday there, it was cold but nice, most tourists out, which meant easy access to the beautiful treasures of the city and a good and attentive service in the restaurants. Sure you have to mobilize your Italian as the multilingual waiters are out on holidays.

You forgot to say when you start working, and when you have your break.
