at my sister's wedding:

cousin stephanie: oh my god, I love your dress!
cousin mare: Oooh, thank you, sweetie! I think it makes me look like jackie O-
Grandmother: (drunkenly) Shut up, MARE!!

and yesterday I was at a friend's house during a fourth of july party that their stepfather was throwing for the neighborhood:

neighbor 1: oh your boys are very handsome.
stepfather: they aren't my boys, I just pay for them
neighbor 1: ah, well. Very handsome, but I bet they know it!
stepfather: they don't, though! that's the thing! they don't get it! they're dumb! they don't get anything! I got it when they were their age! Did you see the girl?
neighbor 1: oh yes, they could do better, but they'll learn that pretty quickly
stepfather: I tell you what, these boys don't learn NOTHING quickly.

Heh.

This isn't really an overheard conversation considering I was a part of it, but this guy I know from class (who, incidentally, I am meeting at the bar in a little while) is a witty sort. When I was first talking to him on a break I asked where he was from and he said, "The sprawl. Same as you."

I am easily amused.

Is he singing gospel to himself?  I had a co-worker once who would listen to gospel and like SHOUT the lyrics super loud, regardless of who might be around.  Kind of awesome, but weird.

Overheard conversation as heard by Favoritest Bartender in Whole Entire World and repeated to me:

girl [singing praises of her boyfriend]: "And his brother lives in New York, in Soho."
Dude: "That's in Manhattan."
girl: "I thought it was in New York."

Guy #1 walks into the bar, wearing an Explosions in the Sky shirt that prominently features a falcon.

Guy #2:  Hey, wow.  Are you a falconer?

Guy #1:  What? ...No?

Guy #2:  Oh.  I saw the shirt, I figured you might be a falconer.

Guy #1:  Oh!  Oh, no.  I thought you said "Faulkner."  No, I'm not a falconer.  This is just a band T-shirt.

Guy #2:  Ha ha, no, "Falconer."  Not "Faulkner."

Guy #1:  Ha ha, no, I'm not a falconer.

Guy #2:  Okay, cool.

A few minutes pass.

Me:  Excuse me.  I couldn't help but overhear what you were just saying.  Are you William Faulkner?

Guy #1:  No...

Me:  Oh.

...

Me:  I thought maybe you wrote The Sound And The Fury.

Guy #1:  No...

Me:  You didn't write Absalom, Absalom?

Guy #1:  No.

Me:  Okay.

...

Guy #1:  Isn't that guy dead?

Me:  ...     Yeah.

Getting the bus home on Monday evening, a girl got on at the same stop as me.  She was around 20, carrying a copy of Heat magazine (UK celeb rag- soap stars, D-list oompah-loompah tan wannabes, etc.) and talking loudly into her mobile phone about having to finish off writing words for a song (yes, you heard me correctly).

Upstairs on the bus she sat right in front of me and the phone conversation continued, leading eventually to this gem:

"No, I have to write them tonight.  So listen...  What rhymes with 'love'?"


(It went on later with "What rhymes with 'glass'?  ...  Don't say ass!")

this was not overheard, someone actually said it to me.

"yeah, I'm kind of an environmentalist now, I've become one with nature.  Like, I was on the bus, and there was this caterpillar on my arm, and i didn't even flick it off, i just let it stay on my arm."

"Getting lipstick on that pig was really hard"

"What I think you should go is get a lot of makeup and lipstick and get that pig to look real pretty"

Overheard in the elevator in my building.

His name's not Marques (pronounced "Marcus") is it?  If so, I absolutely went to college with him.

no, but i know a marcus who would also be capable of saying something like that.  but he's a 45 year old teacher/bartender/pedophile so i don't think that's your man.

Two chicks with orangina tans and abercrombie shirts at the grocery:

Thing 1: Yeah I like Chad and all, but he has this, like, hideous tattoo next to his, you know.
Thing 2: What is it, like a unicorn or something? [titters]
Thing 1: No it's this big skull, with an open mouth and stuff, it's got skin still on it and everything.
Thing 2: Gross.
Thing 1: Yeah and when I said "this is not too hot" he goes "well fuck you, babe, it's the hissy gits and they kick ass"
Thing 2: whatever



I can only assume she misheard 'misfits', though I would be in a band called the hissy fits.

Man: Donnie Darko?
Woman: Yeah she was in that alright, but that's not the one I'm thinking of.  She was in that film a few years ago that was set in an office.
M: Oh right, I think I know the one you're talking about.
W: I can't remember what yer man's name was, the main guy in the movie.
M: It's on the tip of my tongue...
M (sounding slightly elated): Was it Being John Malkovich?

W: No, not that.  It was an odd movie.  She played a quiet girl who got a job as a legal secretary and got involved in a dominant / submissive relationship with her boss.  He used to spank her while she was bent over a desk.
M: Sounds a bit weird.
W: Yeah, I wish I could remember the name of the damn thing.
M: How's your soup?
