Overheard

"They're not plastic, they're pleather"

"Dude, those pants have never been close to the skin of any animal alive or dead, ergo, they're plastic, deal with it"

Jazz, to herself: Dude, he's right, lose the pants.

==========================================================

And a quote:

Sometimes the appropriate response to reality is to go insane.
- Philip K. Dick

I love P.K. Dick . . .

Good quote! Here's one you might also like. It's an Abraham Lincoln quote about the popularity of what was called "spiritualism" at the time (seances and such).

He said, "Well, for those who like that sort of thing, I should think it is just about the sort of thing they would like."

I think it's really funny and can be applied to anyone that you think has bad taste. Who knew old Abe had a sense of humor?

I love PK Dick too, think he's awesome. Classic quote. have to agree with you ont he pleather pants too.

Big Brother said...

Yes but since everyone's reality is the product of their brain's chemical neuro-transmitter balance how do you know if your reality is real? Maybe a schizophrenic is just seeing the world as it really is?
Maybe you go around everyday in tight pleather pants and you just don't realize it.... What's your reality of the day lil sister?

Plastic is made from petroleum, which is thought to be the remains of dinosaurs... and pleather goes beautifully with an ultrasuede jacket.

Great Dick quote.

I never thought I'd type those words.

Jazz said...

Evil Spock - he is indeed lovable

Geewits - I have to remember that one.

Toast - Pleather *shudder*

Big Brother - Don't take me there again. Years of teenage angst wondering what reality was, and perhaps all those insane people were really the sane ones, and do strawberries taste the same for me as for everyone else...

Somewhere Joe - OMG! Those pants were an animal at some point in time. Probably not a T-rex though.

Jocelyn - Must be hard going through life with a name like that...

I don't think leather pants look good on anyone. Let alone plastic pants. lol

Tai said...

Dude?? Dudes should NOT be wearing plastic, leather OR pleather. IMHO of course!

Hageltoast said...

hmm, i have to disagree with Choo and Tai, I know one or two guys who look really scrummy in proper leather pants, but they only suit a very specific body type (tall, uber thin and a bit glam rock).

Dave said...

Yes... Go insane! Been there... done that!.... And it works! :-) Good to be back!

Love the quote, agree about pleather. If there is one fabric that makes me shudder it's pleather! Actually, anything fake makes me shudder.
