Men Talking Shit

 No, I’m not talking about the election, though the recent betting Scandal gives you as much confidence as a fart in a spacesuit.
I’m talking about geeky men and their conversations .
I’ve just had an hours worth and as L’Oreal so eloquently put
It WAS worth it.
Now some faghags will understand this phenomenon, as will the spouses of men ( and women) who frequent comic cons, but some people ( mostly men) love to talk shit with other men.
It’s a serious pastime.
I have three male friends I can do this with. Nigel is the friend of choice today and apart from the usual work talk, we galloped around subjects Such as the film The Stars Look Down, serial Killers, minor female characters in Star Trek. How bad Marlon Brando was, in Apocalypse Now and paraplegics we have known .
We had a lovely video chat at my kitchen table
The sun is fierce today and the sky is very blue. It feels like a holiday abroad.
Janet is gardening, it’s nice to hear someone beavering away in the garden.
The cottage feels alive, especially with Roger watching every move she’s making from his vantage point in the window.





I’m on night shift tonight
And  I wonder who I am on nights with? 
Night shifts are another strange place for talking shite!

  4. Nowt wrong with talking shite - unless it's in a professional situation, of course! On another note, I love those dinosaur lights. I remember you told us where you got them, but I can't remember where that was. I'm sure Roger would love to help Janet in the garden. Not so sure how much help he'd be! xx

    Great pictures and another brilliant post with your somewhat 'flight of ideas'. Hope your coworkers are an entertaining bunch.

    I've always wondered about farting in a space suit.

    Hugs!

  8. Very true. You can find yourself wandering into some very strange topics at 2 am. And random fits of giggling...

  9. What's the difference between talking shit and just talking? Not every conversation needs to be serious. :)

    I love your dinosaur lights!

    1. Perhaps I should rename the talk as geek talk

      No geek talk is intelligent meaningful and often boring talk. Yours is letting go feeling free talk …it’s more comforting

  14. I had to google faghag, now I know.
    I think straight men like to talk shit too, as opposed to how they feel about their relationships, god forbid.

    Men are funny (both ha-ha and-peculiar) but then so are women, I have always preferred chatting to men - I think many women are like that.

  21. a d - as a lady who has been told talks shite on many an occasion ( due I believe attributed to electrics in my brain) - (my neuroologists knowledgeable explanation ) - near miss of lightening strike - 2 sessions o f e c t - electrical storm in my head - apparently hemiplegic migraine in my head - plus betrothed to an electric engineer - My opinion is - You were attracted to the dinosaur to pass on its power of strength and courage x

    2. Migraines are the worst! I didn't have he mills if migraines but for 40+ years I suffered about 15 days a month with devastating migraines. Wish they had the meds back then that they have now. I missed out on so much.

  22. I love to talk shite but don't think it has anything to do with electricity.

  24. I think Brando improvised his own dialogue in that movie.

  25. Those kind of chats always make me feel lighter and happier. Especially if the friend has a lot in common with me.

    Am loving this weather and the garden at the moment. Enjoying every minute.

  27. Your gardens look beautiful through the windows. I would love to watch someone putter away in my garden. An hour of watching someone else pull my weeds would be beyond gratifying. I don't think it'll ever happen though.
