Snippets - August 2001

Conversation with Jen's nephew:
"Liam, is James taller than you?"
"Almost."

Interesting Statistic
The average age of members of the Conservative Party is 67.

Exacting Standards
I opened a fairly expensive bottle of wine the other evening and immediately realised that it was corked. Without hesitation, I pourred it down the drain. A couple of years ago, I would have drunk it. When did I become such a connoisseur? When did I become sufficiently affluent to treat sub-standard wine like effluent?

Excellent quote from a surprising source:
