JTA biting a piece of loose thread off his new hat: This hat doesn't taste as good as my old hat.
Ruth Varley: You tasted your old hat?
JTA: No. But it fitted better.
Claire Q: You need a wireless booster thingy, like a repeater speaker.
JTA: An internet parrot.
JTA: Polly want a packet?
Ruth Varley: Why aren't pillows made out of breasts?
JTA: Because they'd have to be refrigerated.
Talking about putting a mobius strip on a record player
Ruth Varley: You'd have to move the strip, not the needle, though.
Paul Mann: But that's how turntables work!
How to make a gramophone quieter
Ruth Varley: You could put something in the horn, like a trumpet. I mean, like you do with a trumpet, not put a trumpet in the horn, because that would be silly.
Ruth Varley: I don't have anything in my hand right now, I should put alcohol in it! Not, like, intravenously, because that would be wrong.
Ruth Varley is playing Tenchu...
Ruth Varley Man, another dead thing! Seriously, I don't know how you're meant to do this level unless you've brought the swords that kill dead things! Hey... that would have been a good idea...
Ruth Varley: Thinking about masturbation causes you pain?
JJTA emphatically : It does the way he (Dan Q) does it!

* JTA [firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #rockmonkey
<Clare Q> summoned
Claire Q: Has Ruth bought new boots yet?
Paul Mann: Ruth has lots of boots!
Claire Q: No, walking boots, not poke-JTA-in-the-nipple boots.
Claire Q: There aren't enough quotes about breasts.
JTA: Can you write notes in notepad?
Ruth Varley: Hey! I know about things that aren't sex!
Ruth Varley: I don't care about the plot, I just want to jump on stuff.
Claire Q: I think political correctness just passed me by.
(Paul adds the quote)
Claire Q: Hey! That's not even worth quoting. It would be if I said "just passed me by like all those Jews." But I didn't say that.
Ruth Varley: I'm sorry; raw dripping organs just don't do it for me... well... not internal ones.
Ruth turns away from computer source code, dejected, and mopes accross the room.
Ruth: That's it. I'm sick of breaking things.
*tinkle* *crash* as Ruth walks into a wine glass
Paul Mann: Go on then. Explain rap music...
Claire Q: Okay.
Paul Mann: ...without being racist.
Claire Q: Fuck.
Claire is hacking in Perl
Claire: I tried that, but the source highlighting didn't show it... but it worked anyway. It felt wrong, but it still worked; 'cos it felt wrong in a Perl way. Like anal sex.
Claire:Sometimes you need to not say things.
Amy:Yeah, but sometimes they say themselves!
Ruth: Nothing I'm saying tonight makes sense. I should just stop talking.
Paul: It's ok, I'm ignoring you.
JTA: I am gonna wobble through to Paul, so as to be sociabubble.
Ruth:It wouldn't be Christmas if we didn't all taste of glue!
Ruth:Not everyone is as geniusy as me.
Dan: It's can't cock, won't cock.
Claire: The show where lesbians learn to be straight!
Ruth: I've got a neckache in my ear.
Claire is holding a chocolate log at arms length.
Dan: What are you planning on doing with that?
Claire: I'm going to hold it until somebody takes it away and does something with it.
Ruth: I'd recommend putting it on a plate and chopping bits off it with a knife.
Paul: Then put it on a higher plate and worship it.
All eyes turn to Paul. Paul is silent.
Ruth: I think that killing Jews is wrong.
Claire: I think it depends upon the Jew.
Claire dances like a robot
Amy: Stop it or I'm going to have to oil you.
Amy: I'm only dyslexic when I'm writing.
Dan: Ruth: Female Genital Expert.
Claire: Fem... ital... SPURT!
Dan: *ring ring* *ring ring* *ring ring*
Ruth: Wait! I don't know how to pick you up!
Talking about word disassociation games.
Ruth: I think there's a link between "mead" and "brown." After all, they're the same colour.
Lizzie: Mead is a colour?
Claire: I know some history. I just don't know when it happened.
Playing "Chez Geek"
Claire: I'm calling "The Whiner" to your room.
Ruth: It must be really difficult to become addicted to things that can kill you.
JTA Reading a news headline over Ruth's shoulder:"Black given 6 years???!?"
JTA: Oh. Right. Of course.
Claire: Cocopops is a great word. You can colour in 7/8ths of the letters.
Claire: Erm... If you colour in the C's.
Alex Matthews: Man, I'm so out of date. I haven't watched Top Of The Pops in ages!
Gareth Hopkins: Top Of The Pops isn't on any more.
Ruth:Aww, I need a thing to put in that hole. I don't have a thing. That makes me sad.
Dan Q: I don't have commitment phobia. In fact, I'm committed to two girls at once!
To Rory about a mystery beer
Paul:Is this yours? Nope, it's got flavour to it.
JTA: New year's day? That's... the first, isn't it?
After suggesting going for a walk and being met with mostly negative responses
Ruth:What are you going to do if you stay in, you're just gonna sit there, and stare at the... Oh my God, I've turned into a grownup!
Ruth: It smells hot.
Ruth: If God had meant us to be monogamous, why would he have given us two hands?
Claire: Because you need one hand to drive.
Paul Mann: What's that word for.... being able to express yourself really....well?
Dan Q: Sounds like the kitchen's oxidising again...
Dan: Anyone want some hurple tea?
Ruth: Hurple tea?
Ruth: Isn't it herbal tea?
Dan: What did I say?
Dan: Oh, do you know why? It's because it's in a purple box.
Ruth: Can you not tell her hands from mine? I can!
Katie Sutton: There's nothing wrong with Rich Text; it's just the people who fail at using it.
Ruth: You're all made of elbows. Well, your elbow is.
Sarah: What are you buying from Argos, then?
Paul: Well, what do you think it is, bearing in mind I know exactly how much it will weigh?
Sarah: Why are you buying a sack of potatoes from Argos?
Dan: Woohoohoo! That went... amazingbang!
Martine: You must be one of the most eloquent people I know.
Martine: Transformers? Is that that boy-movie with the machines?
(discussing the situations in which it is acceptable to use a balloon whisk)
Ruth: Well... why would you be using a balloon whisk if you weren't making cake?
Claire: You might be... whisking... cabbage?
Claire: I always thought that balloon whisks ought to be able to float, if you put gas in them. 'Cos they look like balloons.
Claire: And... like a cloth over them or something.
Claire (to Dan): Your penis is like The Enormous Turnip. It takes a series of farm animals to pull it out.
Becky: Ow! You hit me in... in the phone!
(regarding Elton John)
Becky: If he had time to spend watching every programme that took the piss out of him, he wouldn't have enough time left to be gay in.
Claire: Is it alright to say "You never see an Indian with a cold?" Because it's alright to say "You never see a rabbit wearing glasses."
Dan: I'm scared of the cold.
Claire: Well hide under the covers!
(Dan gives a confused look for a moment, then understands)
Dan: Sorry; I thought you said "hide in the cupboard."
Claire: You can't hide in the cupboard. Kit's in there with no pants on. He'd keep you warm, though.
JTA: Two-stroke engines are really wierd. "Suck-bang-squeeze-blow."
Adam: Or "Friday," as some of us call it.
JTA: That's wrong. You fail Key Stage 3 Art.
Claire: No! I got an "A" in Key Stage 3 Art, actually.
(stops to think)
Claire: Hang on, I didn't take Key Stage 3 Art!
Dan: What're we going to eat on Christmas Day?
Claire: Duck! Duck! GOOSE!
Ruth: What about something vegetarian?

Dan: That's right: on Christmas Day, everybody will eat Ruth!
Ruth: Paul won't like it...
More of the usual level of crudeness...
Amy: I kissed Ruth, and then Dan splashed all over me.

Dan wishes to describe his favourite part of a hacking book
Dan: The single thingest... the thingest single... the thingle singest... the singest thingle...the REALLY COOL THING!
Beth: No, it wasn't Jimmy... it was one of my friends.
Beth: I only started eating chicken when I realised that they are just vegetables with legs.
Ruth: It must be horrible being a paedophile
Paul: Well, I imagine it's quite fun until you're caught...
Martine: The vending machines in ladies' toilets should sell food.
Dan: Do you think that would sell?
Martine: Hey: if you can have sex in there, you can eat in there.
Claire and Dan are in bed
Claire: Could you turn the light on?
Dan: I can't reach it. Could you?
Claire: Oh, fine then. [gets out of bed] I'll just clamber around the bed in the dark and hope I don't trip over some- [thud] OW!
Upon seeing a large pink pub which she can't fully make out the sign of.
Claire: The "Ship & Gaybar?" Oh... "Anchor."
Claire: It's where the cows all stand with their... wheels in... buckets.
Dan: Jimmy; can I bum your Boddi?
Dan: Every crap has a sweetcorn lining.
During a discussion about idealism.
Penny: In an ideal world there'd be... dinosaurs... in the desert... and it'd be sooo brilliant.
Dan: Yeah, sure: dinosaurs in the desert...
Gareth: ...with nothing to drink...
Dan: ...going round, saying "water, water..."
Gareth: ...or saying, "that wet stuff that we need to drink but that we don't have a name for BECAUSE WE'RE DINOSAURS!"
Claire: I'm just frustrated when my own incompetence fails me.
Claire: I haven't seen The Godfather.
Dan: You haven't seen The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly?
Claire: I HAVE seen The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly.
Ele: Me neither.
Claire: You (Northerners) take food, and you take other food, and you SMOOSH it all together, and then you put it in a PIE! With some CHIPS on the side, and put it all in a BUTTY, and then stick a layer of MASH on the top for good measure!
Dan: I hate these letters; there are more letters than numbers.
Ruth: Ooh, an envelope! Ooh, it smells of paper!
Ruth:Pfft. Optical illusion. Like those are real.
Ruth: Nothing I say is profound. Sometimes people hear profanities, but it's not my fault.
Ruth: There is no rational explanation that doesn't involve pixies.
Claire (of Dan): He was talking gibberish earlier.
Dan: I was not talking dibble-what?
Ruth: What use is an invisible towel? That'll never get anything dry!
Ruth: You look like you're sleepy. Or a zombie. You either need to sleep or to be decapitated.
Dan: Let's try one, and failing that, try the other.
Ruth: Which shall we try first?
Dan (looking at his web browser cookies): Hmm. I have some weird cookies.
Ruth: You *do* have a weird cock... I mean... COOKies.
JTA: Oh for the sake of Christ's limp cock.
Paul: They've got holes in, of course they'll float!
JTA (frustrated by the lack of working Internet): O for God's sake. Where does one buy new routers?
Matt Payne: Uhm. Online?
Discussing the advantages of Chinese Vs. Indian take-away
Paul Mann: This is the problem when your social group grows above... one.
Sarah Seaton: What's mutton made from?
Matt Payne: Lamb
Sarah Seaton: I thought it was baby cow...fish.
Dan and Claire have just finished packing, and are about to drive to Preston
Claire Q: Do I need my car keys?
Paul Mann: Turns out Carmen Miranda is actually Portugese-born Brazilian.
JTA: So, Spanish then?
Ruth Varley: I don't understand the thing that everyone has for Willow. Sure, she looks kinda hot, but she's just so wet...
Ruth: If you're trying not to get your hair wet, why are you wearing a bra?
Claire Q: There's nothing nut-like about Pecans. Apart from the fact that they're nuts.
Ruth: Now we have to make up more quotes about self-harm, and Claire will have to say something racist about it.
Dan: Like how she wishes the Jews would self-harm, or something.
Claire: Circumcision *is* self-harm!
<Penny Wild> Happy Thursday everyone :o)
<Dan Q> Happy Thursday, Penny.
* Dan Q passes out the Thursday Cake
Ruth Varley: Winning is for losers.
Ruth and JTA are talking about when they first met
JTA: Actually, out of the people in Block 9 I would probably have talked to me, too. But only because I would have gone: "Hey, someone else with a waistcoat!".
Ruth: Working with Enterprise Java is like having an extra person on your team who hates you and wants your project to fail.
Ruth: I fixed the fix that fixed the fix. Then I fixed the fixtures.
Gareth Hopkins: Do you mean one pound weight or one pound money?
Alex Matthews: One pound.
Ruth Varley: People are always integer quantities. Unless they're cripples, obviously...
Claire: There's nothing brave about fighting cancer. I mean, it's not like you're fighting the Germans or anything.
Claire: I guess on reflection that sounds kind of bad. But it's not really a fight is it? It should involve fists and things.
Ruth: Oh my God, it's five past twelve. I need to go home.
Claire: My nipples tell you this?
Claire: Every year, it seems like there's more and more history.
Adam: And that's as true today as it's ever been.
Dan: It'll be even more true tomorrow!
Claire Q: If you breed an American Indian and an Indian American, do you have a 50/50 chance of getting an American American or an Indian Indian?
Ruth: It's a good point though....
Ruth: I'm disturbed, and I'm not even you!
Dan: I've been dumped on valentines day. Well, technically I was dumped the day before but I didn't get the voicemail in time.
<Ruth Varley> [dan]THEYSAY Â£ HR
<Ruth Varley> Sry, hi caplok
* Dan Q watches Ruth turn into a lolcat
<Clare Q> There's a helpline for if you hear voices. Why bother?
<Clare Q> You could just have a silent answer machine.
JTA: Nipples! Drink!
Ruth Varley: Didn't we already see those nipples?
Dan Q: This is why trainspotting is better than lesbian porn. All trains have numbers.
Claire picks up the landline phone to call her dad in Spain and stands staring at the keypad for some time...
Claire: Arrgh! I can't find the "plus" key.
in the wee-small hours of the morning, a message comes in from Thailand
<Jimmy Carter> anyone about?
<Jimmy Carter> I'm in jail- I'm sending this by morse code through an exposed phone line
<Jimmy Carter> send help
<Jimmy Carter> the cockroaches are eating my face
<Jimmy Carter> ...ok, not really, I'm in a webcafe in bangkok
<Jimmy Carter> cancel operation Jimmy CarterRescue
Matt Payne: Whenever my Dad thinks, his brain goes to his head.
Rory: You're exploiting those bees!
Paul: But they make far more honey than they can use.
Claire Q: Just like those kids with those trainers.
Claire: I don't have legs. Because I'm short.
talking about wiki tags
Claire: We have breasts and nipples, but no penis.
Dan: Speak for yourself...
Ruth: C'mon, even armageddon has a good side!
Chris Cooke: You mean like, it's the end of the world, but everyone gets cake?
About to go to the Cottage
Ruth: I'm really not with it, today.
JTA: O dear. D'you want to take soft drinks?
Ruth: Uhm. no, thanks. I'm back on that whole "not drinking alcohol during the week" thing...
Talking about clubs at Aber Students Union
Ruth: Is there a disabled people's club?
Claire: There's an afro-carribean club. That's similar.
Dan suggests using his phone and a laptop to connect to the internet on the move
Ruth: By the time you're going on the motorway, won't you be going too fast for the... signal... fairies... to keep up with you?
Ruth: These jeans came from Debenhams.
Dan: Are you sure? The label on them says "Pineapple."
Claire: Could that be the washing instructions? Is there a picture of a pineapple too?
JTA: They've... release Super Monkey Ball for the iPhone.
Ruth: My God. We've reached the pinnacle of Gay.
Ruth: Can I drive?
JTA: No, you've been drinking!
Ruth: Erm, no I haven't.
JTA: Oh, right, yes. That was me.
Alex has a satellite photo of Earth on his desktop wallpaper
Gareth: Where was that taken from?
Claire: What do you call pickled onions before they're pickled?
Claire: No, that's not right.
Dan: Umm. Yes, it is.
Referring to a film at Troma Night
Claire:It's in Japanese by the way...
Dan:How would I know, I can't see the screen -- I was wondering why I couldn't understand it!
Dan: Uhh... what?
Claire: Oh. Did I say that out loud?
Claire: Not that it's even possible to think that.
Dan: Well, you obviously did.
Claire: I don't really mean, "Did I say that out loud?" I meant, "Did I say that while you were here?"
Claire: I was making a scrolling sound because I'm reading a PDF.
<Clare Q> /^(.*)_(.*).txt$/
<Kit Lane> um
<Clare Q> My regular expression is staring at me
<Kit Lane> lol
<Clare Q> or possibly is made of shiny breasts
Claire: Feel my hand. It's numb.
Alex: It's so hot I'm sweating like a pig. And I don't sweat.
Dan: Did you ever fart so hard that your ears popped?
Claire: When do you want to barbecue stuff?
Penny: I'm tasty now.
Pennny: It's like when you're trying to spell things with spaghetti - if you don't have alphabet spaghetti, it's just not going to work!
Claire: He probably was younger than me: he's ginger.
Dan: And ginger people... don't live very long?
Claire: Not when they're around me, they don't!
Claire: You're all... nose.
Dan: I think you've had enough to drink.
Claire: No. I always say that!
Dan: No you don't.
Claire: Oh yeah.
Claire: Do you get hedgehogs in the North?
Dan: What's that game that the Mayans used to play with their elbows?
Ruth: I always like the sound of "making love." It sounds like "sex," but... with cake!
Penny says something that could be construed as racist.
Dan: Welcome to Claire's club.
Claire: I have a club? Cool. Can we not let any blacks in.
Claire: My mouth hurts from thinking.
during a discussion about going and watching a show involving lesbians
Dan: Yeah, I could manage a lesbian.
Ruth: Well, I could manage two lesbians.
Claire: I could manage three lesbians.
Ruth: And I could manage four lesbians.
Claire: Lick that thing!
(reference to "Eat That Thing!" - a game and a Chez Geek card)
Penny Wild tells the history of her sex life
Dan: So what you're saying is that the first boyfriend was too big, and the second boyfriend was too small, but the third boyfriend was just right.
Claire: You've forced me to throw away perfectly good trousers that I really liked, just because... ... ...
Dan: ...they don't fit?
Claire: Yeah; you could put it like that.
Claire: EVERYBODY loves the Grand National. Because it's just a load of horses. Running.
Dan: Watch you feet, Penny!
Penny: What feet? Where?
Dan: They've done a remake of Settlers 2 with a 3D-world.
Claire: But the surface of the Earth is 2D. Well, it's not, but it is if you think about it.
Dan: Am I more or less fun than cheese?
Claire: What kind of cheese?
Claire: You're gone all aromatic.
Claire: Uhh. I probably mean "romantic."
Ruth: There's no such thing as invisible things. Except for things that are invisible... but they DON'T INCLUDE TOWELS.
Claire is masturbating at the end of a day of too-much-coffee
Claire: Maybe this will make me calm. Maybe this is how you calm down toddlers.
Claire: Have you something'ed the thing. No... wait, that's not what I meant. I meant that stupid thing I said earlier.
Claire: Why have I undid the things? No; wait - that's not even a sentence.
Amy: You are such a goth! When did you last wear a colour?
Ele: Umm. 16?
Amy: You were 16 when you last wore a colour?
Ele: Oh, sorry. I thought you said "collar."
Claire: Black people wear all that bling so they can find one another in the dark.
JTA: Also, so there's something for the police lights to reflect off.
JTA: There wasn't any black pudding in that breakfast! I've just had a vegetarian breakfast!
Ruth: But there was loads of bacon and sausages and things...
JTA: There wasn't any pig's blood. That makes it vegetarian.
Kt Errington: "Why is it that when Europe gets together the result is 'gay'?"
Dan: Have you ever played Chronotron?

Dan: C, h...
Dan: um... er... r?
<Jimmy Carter> I'm trying to be more literealy

<Jimmy Carter> into literature

Claire has been talking about extradition laws
<Dan Q> 
<Ruth Varley> Dan Q: Bringing moderation to #rockmonkey
<Ruth Varley> Now there's a sentence I never thought I'd type
Alex: I considered getting myself a hobby, once. Then I took up drinking. Now I consider that a hobby.
Dan: I don't think this schema's right. You either have too many tables or not enough.
Dan: Being gay gives you the runs.
Claire: Right; that's it. I'm making a Facebook friend group called "Actual Friends."
Dan: Why don't you just actually only add friends to your friends list if they're actually your friends?
Claire: You can't just tell somebody "No, I'm not going to be your Facebook friend."
Dan: Yes you can. And I do. I add people to my friends list if I might ever want to speak to them again, not because Facebook tells me that we have 16 friends in common.
Claire: It doesn't work like that. You don't add people to your friends list because you want to talk to them when you obviously don't, you add them to your friends list so that Facebook shares all the personal information with them that you don't want them to have.
Discussing bouncing walnuts off people's heads
Dan: "Walnuts aren't hard, it won't hurt"
Throws walnut at own head
Claire's doing the washing up
Claire: how do I make the water go away?
Dan: Pull out the plug.
Claire: Where is it?
Dan: At the bottom of the sink...
Claire: How do I see my hidden field?
Ruth: Dan's neck smells good.
Claire: It's alright, I guess. It smells of Dan, which means you can tell he hasn't transformed into someone else without telling me.
Ruth: Are you telling me that smelling his neck is the only way you can tell?
Claire: Well, it's a clue.
Dan and Ruth are talking about Claire's fetish for putting her finger in people's belly buttons
Claire: I haven't done that in years, but people keep bringing it up! It's like that time I gassed those jews.
[Claire Q Claire]: I'm not sure I can code like this. (topless) I'll get distracted.
[Dan Q Dan] gives a quizzical look.
[Claire Q Claire]: What? I *am* really hot.
Claire: You know what's wrong with being smarter than everybody else?
Dan: You know what's wrong with being more arrogant than everybody else?
Claire: NOTHING! It's great.
< Ruth Varley> I'll just carry right on proofreading text that users van view. what can piossibly go wrong?
claire_q: I am not a hobbit! Look at my feet! Look at my fucking feet! (Brandishes foot). Look at my fucking feet and say they aren't hairy!
[Alex Matthews Alex Matthews]: I can't believe it! This guy's ripped off all of my ideas, even before I had them.
Alex Matthews: If I was told I'd have to go back to school, I'd freak! I'd sooner go back to jail. I mean... TO JAIL.

JTA and some girlare discussing the taste of semen and have been for aaaaaages
Ruth: You two have loads of stuff in common and this is what you bond over? Semen?!?
Claire: Two positives DO make a negative... There's a black gay guy who can't dance!
claire_q: I assume I don't hear my stomach internally. It probably has to send... waves of sounds into my... ear mandible.
Ruth: Why are you testing on live?
Dan: I'm not testing on live!
Ruth: Then why did you say you weren't?
Ruth: You're so wrong! It's like you took right, and turned it inside out, and wore it as a coat, or something!
Claire: Why does a pillow cost £30?
Ruth: Maybe it's made out of babies.
Jimmy: Every time I say to get up or do something you turn into... a... Tyrannostaystillasaurus. Rex.
Annie: Ivan the Terrible wasn't evil.
Ruth Varley: I thought he impaled people?
Annie: That was Vlad the Impaler...
Ruth_Varley: Why are all the cute ones taken?
Jen_Banks: Uhhh, because you took two of them?
Claire: You don't say 'Corpus of Knowledge', you just say 'Corpus' - the 'Knowledge' part is implied because it's in latin.
Paul: The copy protection on this DVD is really clever. Nobody's been able to crack it yet!
JTA: Really? When was it released?
Paul: Um. Tomorrow.
Jimmy: Damn, I meant to go to a time management workshop weeks ago!
Ruth: (staring at code) Fifty-over-one?
Dan: Are you sure you aren\'t dividing by Friday again?
Ruth: Argh! Why is my code deciding to represent 28 over 7 as a fraction?
Dan: Um, because it\'s pi?
Ruth: No... it\'s 4...
Dan shows JTA his \"brave\" new shirt
