Pigeon induced swiss coma

Subjects that were introduced into the conversational wild by our Asian IT temp over lunch with a friend at Swiss Pigeon. He'd recently completed his Ph.d in Mathematics so not only were we culturally off base but he thinks in math that I will never use to count stitches, adjust patterns or make change.

- I find your voice "magnetic" and unavoidable in the office when you're on the phone.
- I went to see the horse races and Ontario Place this weekend. I missed the races when I got there the beavers were riding the horses. (ed. he said people but I heard beavers - I SWEAR IT.)
- I love the Discovery shows. You know, you don't need to see the beginning to know how it will end.

Angie: Oh yeah, those shows LOVE the Serengeti.
Me: I'd be dead within an hour if I was in the Serengeti

Temp: No you wouldn't, if you get attacked you just climb on an elephant - nothing can kill an elephant.

- Do you know anyone who is doing quantum financial planning?

It was really an excellent way to start the week and now I am nappy from the power of the pigeon.
