Ellen Feiss is hot. I only knew about
this meme today. That translates to a two month lag between the propagation of the meme and the
time I hear about it. I heard about the All Your Base and Mahir one several days after they
become popular and now I have to resort to hearing about Feiss from The Age
[theage.com.au] of all places. Alas, I have been out of the scene indeed.
Anyway, I heard this Indian couple arguing on the shuttle while on my way back home today. They
were sitting beside me and talking so voluminously that the whole shuttle bus were exposed to their
quandary. It seems that the boyfriend was tardy in introducing his girlfriend to his project group
mates. Allegedly the girlfriend “finished photocopying half the fucking book” before the boyfriend
thought to introduce her. Good thing he didn’t introduce her as only a friend because she sweared
she “will knock you down there and there if you introduced me as your friend”. I could see several
other people in the bus making minute changes like shifting their seating subtly and casually
removing their headphones to maximize their auditory bandwidth.
