The film society office complained about a fruit fly infestation they have and I posted:

It's too early in the summer to be sick of fruit flies.

Do you think they'll get it?

You've been hanging around a certain punster too much, Jeff!  :P I got a text from offline Chuck yesterday: what's the difference between a person caught standing in amazement and a leopard's tail?

One is rooted to the spot and the other is spotted to the root.  ::)

No such thing as "hanging around a certain punster too much."  ;D

I didn't get the "time flies/fruit flies" one from him. I don't remember where I heard that one, but I'm sure it wasn't from him.  ???

This is not me using a brokieism as such, but still a brokieism, kinda.

While driving the other day, I listened to the radio with one ear, wihtout paying much attention. It was a programme with little music and a lot of talking. (I find it helps me concentrate when I drive)

Suddenly the word 'Gyllenhaal' stood out to me, and my ears immediately perked up!

It was about a military historian named Lars Gyllenhaal, who has written something or other. But still....

I think that could be called "selective Brokeback hearing" Sasoon.....
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

I guess you're right.

I suppose it's only one of the many symptoms that constitute the Brokeback fever.   ::)   ;D

Careful! They say it is when a cold or fever gets into your ears that it can get dangerous!   :D
