Jeez, he's a fcuking dullard isn't he ?

2 wickets at 134 in 3 tests, compared with MacGill's 7 at 31, and puts his arse on feeling hard done by / scapegoated when he's dropped.

He's the rusty penknife on a tray of shiny new razor blades.

Bizarre.

We went to selection. I hadn't bowled well [and] we had lost - Brian Lara batted unreal - but I felt like I was being the scapegoat, that because I didn't bowl well it was my fault.


So exactly whose fault was it?

Have one of those girl friend things so haven't been posting much...

Not sure how much longer it's going to last though so might be on here a bit more in a month or two. We both have a similar sense of humour but we don't agree much on films (she can't understand how anyone can like films made before the mid 90s despite some of the best films of all time being made before the mid 90s) and with regards to food the conversation usually goes with me saying "Shall we go to ** for some food?" and she will say "Oh I don't like **" so I'll say "Have you ever tried **??" and she'll say "No".

She thought The Usual Suspects was really shit, was even taking the piss out of me for liking it and was laughing with her mates about how shit it was. Then tries to get me to watch Bates Motel which I agreed to and then found out she hadn't seen Psycho, she said she would want to watch the film the series is based on until she found out it was an old film. 

It's not just the not liking old films that grates, it's the assumption that liking old films is ridiculous, like there is something inherently irredeemable about them and she laughs about it with her friends about some shit old films that I'm "making" her watch.

She thought Ex Machina was great so I described Blade Runner explaining that it explores similar themes and has some of the most beautiful cinematography and amazing world created for it. But because it was made in the 1980s the look on her face just dropped. It's f*cking infuriating.

Cracking pair and pretty face though plus she's easy to get along with apart from those things, but the film and food issues are getting more annoying every time I see her for the weekend.

She's extremely thoughtful and kind so maybe I'm being a bit qunty by focussing on such minor things, compared to the other women I dated last year she's a god send so maybe these cracks will iron out, but I love food, and I love films so having such fundamental disagreements on them is irritating (she does like decent recent films or at least not terrible films).

I've gone on a bit of a rant there, was originally just meant to be a "have a gf so not been posting" type post  Laughing.

I'm hearing you man... but they seem reasonably minor points. Usually you 'grow' to like some of the things the other person likes, so it's no real biggedy - it's just that you're doing datey things, which is dinner and films. When you get down to the possible more regular cohabitation, you could find it's all good. Kindness, for instance, is a nice trait to have. So's a good grill and superchebs. Putting your penis into something is also a 'nice to have'. Chill baby.

Have to disagree with Monkey on this. So sit back and prepare for some Richard Madeley-esque cod psychology.

If your lady really can't fathom how people can like films made before the 90s then I'd suggest that hints at potentially major personality issues. If she can't grasp that concept (is it even a concept?) then how would she deal with things that really matter. I'd say that down the road you will be confronted with more foibles and that in time these foibles will change from being minor irritants to things which make you want to punch yourself in the face until you're unconscious.

Out of interest does she apply that thinking to other things? How about books? Anything before the 80s? That Shakespeare guy, rubbish obviously. Is there a music rule - pre 1 Direction is the cut-off?

That said I'm guilty of overlooking all manner of warning signs in favour of cracking norks and a pretty face, shit I even got married using that logic (spoiler alert - it didn't last that long).

So roll the dice chief.

I think we are in an odd time. Our Pommy mates are low posters during periods of English success. Fortunately, these periods rarely last too long. A few standard thrashings brings an upswing of postings. Even Monkey develops an interest in cricket. Sadly a number of posters have left over the years as a result of bullying, ennui and sexism.

Personally I miss the diversity and general madness of earlier days.

Jayzus, we are not even at 800 posts at a third of the way through the month. Can the WT20 (God help us) save us from breaking the all time lowest posting month of April 2014 when we couldn't even crack 2,000 posts??

FTR, the lowest monthly post count record is 1,953. April 2014 is the only month we have ever failed to crack 2,000 pearls of wisdom.

Where's Dello with his saving banalities???
