My God Ritchie, there's a cat on the field!

The following conversation occurred late last night at Lenin House.

Me: “By the way, who won Celebrity MasterChef?”

The Mrs: “Some cricketer. Simon Kitty or something.”

Me: “Simon Katich?”

The Mrs: “Yes, that’s him”

And talking about odd conversations; Pers old son, are you still getting pleading messages from Suicide Girl?

That reminds me of a conversation that allegedly took place between Richie Richardson and Greg Ritchie as the latter raced onto the field (as a spectator) after the Australians had beaten the West Indies in 1995 for the first time in living memory:

Richardson: "Fat Cat, what are you doing here?"

Ritchie: "Get fucked Richie."

I was underwhelmed by Wendy Harmer. Stephanie Alexander looked like a witch and Alex Perry is gorgeous!

The cricketing dude with no sense of smell, cooking by numbers, any idiot can do that.

Alex Perry is gorgeous!

Alex Perry is a odious, pin-headed moron.

Stephanie Alexander looked like a witch

I've actually met her, about 16 or 17 years ago when we put a system into "Stephanie's", her restaurant at the time. Not sure if it's still there, somewhere in Melbourne, an old mansion. It was a fixed menu and very pricey but food to die for.

And she was nice.

Who?

More cats playing sport?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Yep, that's about it, Squib.

Bob I can't believe you couldn't have worked Richie Benaud into that exchange.

But then again Richie Benaud has been dead for twenty years, they used a muppet to play him on the cricket. With Billy Birmingham doing his voice.

I enjoyed bits of MasterChef, but nothing could induce me to watch or listen or attend to Wendy Harmer. She is a cunt.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Strong words, Catlick.

Did Wendy Harmer kill your cat or something?

Perseus said...

Yes, SG sends me about three messages a day. The late night ones are the best, when she's drunk.

"We are meant to be together. I love you. Blag truied to have sex with, but I love you so I said no. Look me in the eye and tell me you don't want me." etc.

The daytime ones are less intense.

Because I'm a softy, I am responding to emails, politely but firmly. Besides, we have a heap of mutual friends who have urged me to at least be civil, so I am. I kinda feel sorry for her, but my pity doesn't extend to seeing her gain.

I have a date with someone else coming up. I am far more interested in what is ahead, than what has already collapsed.

I was trying to keep it factually correct, Wari.

Nevertheless, here's Richie Rich introducing Richie Richardson to Richie Benaud and Greg Ritchie:

Rich: Richie, this is Richie and this is Ritchie.

Richardson: Thanks Richie. Hi Richie, hi Ritchie.

Ritchie: Hi Richie, hi Richie. Sorry, what was the other guy's name Richie?

Rich: Richie.

Ritchie: Hi Richie.

Benaud: Hi.

Good thinking comrade.

WitchOne said...

So you have a date with Obtuse? When? Where are you going?? What will you wear?

Leilani said...

I tuned in late to Masterchef so I must have missed the bit where Wendy Harmer ate Matt Preston.

Kettle said...

In The Mrs's defence, 'Katich' is a silly name. He should at least change it to 'Kaditch'.

Dr. Golf said...

Another date....Holy Moly

catlick said...

Nah, she's just a cunt. And her blog (no link, she's a cunt) is drivel. Self serving regurgitated media releases) She decorates her site with drivel & conditional praise and describes her "career" in lavish terms that could be described as delusional masturbation. She's a cunt.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Fair enough Catlick.

Can't say I'm a big fan of Harmer myself.

WitchOne said...

My beloved Velvet took one look at her on MC the other night and casually mentioned she has a face like a busted arsehole.

I had to snigger.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

The expression "a face like a cat's bum with a hat on" is also useful.

Do people want a PSF?

catlick said...

I have a date with someone else coming up.
Perseus please keep us informed. Reading about your life is as close as I will come to a reality show. I am gagging for the next installment.

Cath said...

I am gagging for the next installment.

I personally am very careful of my use of the word "gagging."

Mad Cat Lady said...

Yes damnit!

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Hey, MCL.

Did you know Myf Warhurst is stealing your stuff?

Mad Cat Lady said...

lol - i tried to get one of my cats to walk on a lead, but he savaged me and I haven't tried it again

Puss In Boots said...

I walk my cat on a lead...

catlick said...

My Burmese who lived a week off 20 years wore a harness that let me safely walk him, and sit him up in the car, (initially a topless red mini moke). He had a plush cushion in the passenger seat and raised disdainful staring at the traffic lights to a high art. Oh, and he loved the beach too. One great sand box perhaps.

This has just been written down elsewhere so I will never forget its fabulousness, and I am going to spend the rest of the day trying to work it into a conversation.

Puss In Boots said...

I haven't taken my cat to the beach yet, Catlick. He doesn't mind car rides, but I don't know that he could deal with 1.5 hours in the car to the beach. Actually, he'd probably just curl up and go to sleep.

He loves his carrier too. We have to leave it downstairs with the door open so he can go in and sleep whenever he wants.

catlick said...

My boy used to sleep on long trips. Don't know how, but whether it be Adelaide or Sydney trips, he would sleep until about 10 minutes from the front door, then, stretch, put his front feet on the dash, and look around. Spooky. I think if the cat has a sense that the car is an extension of you/home, then it's cool. Mine would race to the front door when I picked up the keys.

wari lasi said...

A belated thanks for that exchange Bob. I knew there had to be some fun to be had with that. And you do it so well.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Good to see Myf cementing her reputation as a halfwit.

Alex Perry is ridiculous, Wendy Harmer needs to just go away and stay away. I have no opinion of Simon Katich except that his name kind of/almost rhymes with "cabbage" which is a little bit amusing to me at the moment.

Celebrity Masterchef holds nowhere near the interest for me that normal Masterchef does. Mostly because it's rigged and you could tell that from the first episode when that old dude from INXS won.

I have a date with someone else coming up. I am far more interested in what is ahead, than what has already collapsed.

Good for you, Pers. That's the way, old chap.
