what they said: quips from Communique 2011

You know what it's like. You get a bunch of friends in a room, add a couple of bottles of wine, and sooner or later somebody is going to say something weird. Sometimes you don't even need the room or the wine.

Continuing with the grand olde tradition established at last year's beta version of Communique, we made sure we had a note pad and pen prominently displayed at all our Communique gatherings this year. For note-keeping. Because sooner or later, somebody is going to unload.

Here are some quips that were quipped. See if you can guess who said some of them.


So I'm sitting there, with this man between my legs...

I only do Indian if I'm outvoted.

He's some kind of tech god!

I'm Allyson ... with an "L".

You can't buy seeds in a nut store!

Communique is about meeting people you wish were your neighbours.

Personally, the first thing I do when I get home is take my bra off.

I'm not feeling very protesty today.

It's a bit like herding cats. Thank goodness you're not a cat. You're definitely a dog, and I mean that in the best possible way.

What is oyster gravy egg sauce?

I love theatre. I love how they fuck with me.

OMG that was the most boring thing I have ever seen!

Dear Jane Siberry...

I won't guess, but I love how it's primarily dominated by two people. ;) Such a quotable bunch. Also, I've been saying Whaaat?! all week.

Oh, and I have they best picture to go with the "herding cats" comment. It'll be on my Caption This post soon.

I will leave this one alone since I know the answers, and yes, as Allison states, it's pretty much down to two people...who shall remain nameless...

I have the feeling that "Whaaat?!" has been resonating across the continent all week, Al.
Looking forward to the cat herding picture! I'm sure we can find a suitable caption or two...

What a bunch of quotable folks, WC! Let them remain nameless as we quote them...
