QI? What do you think?

I have just re read my latest ( and now deleted ) post detailing a tea bag incident in the Jacob's Ladder cafe this morning.
Apart from the phase "I like my coffee as strong as Montserrat Cabelle's knicker elastic" which I thought was a particulary delightful line,
The whole thing was as interesting as thrush.
Gawd, I need to stop writing shit

  2. WTF, John! I thought it was hilarious!!! Put it back up, man! I think you are your harshest critic... everyone else around here loves you. And I think the idea of you accidentally flinging a tea bag at someone else's table is FUNNY, FUNNY, FUNNY! It reminds me of the time I kept screwing up ordering coffee at a drive-thru. No matter how hard I tried, I embarrassed myself. I love stories like that! Bring 'em on!!!!!

  3. I always like posts explaining why you couldn't post....

    The coffee in Starbucks usually TASTES like knicker elastic. And it's about as strong as a cream cracker.

    You don't have Miss Perkins' phone number by any chance?

  4. Dear John,
    You are trying too hard, be yourself and just go with it. For Gawd's sake don't think about it!
    You are more interesting... just being you.

  5. Not having read it John, I'll take your word for it that it was shit!
    I did like the 'bored secretary's' line though!!
    hey, one can't be prefect all the time!!

  6. Why worry? I read everything you blog about and it always makes me smile or pee my pants with heart stopping guffaws of laughter.
    My rant/blog yesterday didn't get many views but I got stuff off my chest - it's a form of therapy and a damn sight cheaper :)

  7. It cheered up my morning no end. You're definitely being too hard on yourself. I was even considering reading it again after this post but it wasn't to be....x

  8. For those of us who didn't see your original post and are now being offered this frustrating tease, you get a QI score of +3 - which, as you know, is pretty darned good!

  10. I'm very shallow. A tea bag incident sounds right up my street whereas a quick google for the plot of 'Life of Pi' makes me want to hit myself over the head with a tin tray. Don't overestimate you audience..... :-)

  11. I'm with Raybeard. But I will have to deduct 2 points. Being left hanging like this is just no way to start the day.

  12. Oh please put the post back up, I still have some of it on my blog list. Accidentally flinging a teabag? What fun.

  13. The first para of tea bagging still exists in my reader...so I've been left in suspense...

  15. See, John, the thing is, you have such a great way of sharing everyday stuff. You often bring a smile to the faces of your readers.
    I only got what little bit is in the blogger history, but I'm sure, based on what I've seen here, it would have been a great post!

    Hope your day is going well, John! ♥

  16. You had me at "tea bagging."

    Don't you realize you have such a loyal following precisely because you make everyday, boring life so fascinating with your turns of phrase? Plus, we 'Murkins enjoy seeing the little cultural differences you don't even think about in day-to-day life.

    Honestly, John, if I didn't know you better, I'd think you were a pre-teen girl fishing for compliments. Hmph.

  19. Aw no! I missed it. I was just about to read "Tea bagging" when I saw this post. I clicked on your previous post and you'd already deleted it. Your posts are SO interesting John, I'm sorry I missed this one ! Hope you are going to put it up again. Jo

  21. You? Not interesting? I doubt that.

  22. As N.B. said, i too saw just enough to want to read more, but alas, it's not to be.

  23. John I thought your tea-bagging post was hilarious! I always find the phrase Julia Roberts uses in Pretty Woman the best one for these situations...'slippery little suckers aren't they?'

  24. I understand Trelawnyd has an annual teabag-flinging contest, won last year by Auntie Gladys. Or was it lovable despot Jason?

  26. Well rats! I missed it. It hasn't been that long since I started reading your blog and looking forward to the next. Now it looks like I'm gonna have to kick start my laptop earlier in the morning before all the good stuff gets deleted.

  29. Saw the word tea bag and clicked. Not the first time I've been disappointed with a click like that...

  30. What was wrong with it? I enjoyed the tale of the flying teabag. Made me laugh.

  31. Judging by the comments I have been robbed. By you. Please put it back - and let us be the judge instead of the self-flagellator. Plase.
