Something to Say


Not me, YOU!

After yesterday's model ( "My...because..." ), here the answers. Have fun:


My. God, its 8.45 and Belgium isn't the best place in the world to be but its still dark and thats pretty depressing. Still all is not lost ............................. ........., because. the croissant I have will be infinitely better than the rewarmed one from Tesco's you will have Alex ! ...... .......... Aubrey

MY life is in pieces!, my friends will desert me!, my family has shunned me! because i haven't forwarded the joke from Alex!! Neil

My office is soon getting full of paper, because so many people are posting their stories. Thank you Alex that you send yours by e-mail! Pirkko

My journey to work is filled with excitement and anticipation because I know that when I switch on my PC and open Outlook, Alex's morning mail will be sitting in my inbox and as I start to read it I immediately sink into a spiral of depression and despair but then suddenly there is a ray of light, a high to follow the low, yes I'm talking about the joke at the end of all the mindless rambling about Brussels, Eurotunnel, IKEA, B&Q, One2One, Luxembourg, Portugal, etc, a sort of morning after feeling but in reverse but hang on a minute, I sense a conspiracy here, could it be that Alex is really the codename of a fiendishly clever advertising campaign on behalf of the above companies/places? Kevin

MY God. Not only do I have to wade through this crap every morning, now I have to write it myself. Of course, I'm only doing this BECAUSE I realize how sad you would be if you opened your inbox tomorrow morning, only to see 'You have Zero Mail'. Barry

My! Oh my! I just love to read the morning mail. The thing which impresses me most is Karine's ability to stay in bed and the cat's ability to show you such affection. The morning mail is the highlight of my day as it is about the only mail I get which does not ask me to do something --until today! Its like coffee- I don't function until I've read it. Veronica

My weekend will be so exciting this weekend why you ask because this girl is going to see U2 in concert! :o) Kate

MY oh My, who would have thought it possible, Alex, the would be Belgian lost for words. I wouldn't have BECAUSE 1 Those of us who enjoy our daily sleep, look forward to the tails about Luxembourg. 2 Those looking forward to holidays enjoy the tails from Portugal 3 and the rest just delete the message without reading it. Derek

My...friend Alex is trying to outsource his peculiar inner world to his peculiar friends. Wont work because most of his friends are that kind of boring besserwissers who can criticize his sometimes odd humor but cannot produce anything better themselves. Marko

My..head is blank this morning........ ............., because.........I had too many the night before, attached is the evidence................ ............................ ( attached evidence here )Deano

Have a nice day


A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from Los Angeles to New York. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He says, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me five dollars, and vice versa."

Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500."

This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment, agrees to the game. The lawyer asks the first question: "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill, and hands it to the lawyer. "Okay," says the lawyer, "your turn." She asks, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?"

The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references ... no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the Internet and the Library of Congress ... no answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and coworkers but to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the blonde and hands her $500. The blonde thanks him and turns back to get some more sleep.

The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, stirs the blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?" Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.

And you thought blondes were dumb.
