Do you see people and immediately associate them with animals? Like that tennis player who is a horse/turtle?

So, I am on the way home from uni; I am on the tram. I am tired. The kind of tired where your mind drifts and day dreams and later you realise you haven't been paying attention and 15 minutes has gone by and your eyes may have been closed...in fact you could have been asleep.

I had just had one of my first lectures on transport and you know what I thought about the most during the lecture...Did the lecturer have fuzzy ears or was it just his hair that strangely misplaced? No really? And the more I thought about it, the more I hoped he had fuzzy ears - and the more I hoped he had fuzzy ears the more he looked like an aging yellow lab with a British accent.

Not only could I not concentrate on the lecture, my tram ride home was mish mash of wakeful sleep (not relaxing) thoughts about fuzzy eared human-yellow-labs...Not to mention the guy behind me who was talking to his girlfriend on the phone which was both sickening and kind of adorable until he started to sing repeats of every sentence he said. "I'll pick up cheese and what else? chhee-eeese and wha-at eeeelllse." I just wanted to turn around and be like "buddy, sing catchy show tunes or shut up...I am busy thinking about a fuzzy eared man!" but he probably would have just sung "Fuuu---uzzzy eared maa--aaaan?"

  1. oh my goodness, I TOTALLY do that. So many people look like animals.

    And yeah - the whole left and right thing - I don't really get it, but I do know that I get it wrong all of the time. It is so weird.

  2. That lecturer totally sounds like a brittish yellow lab and I love every minute! It's like when I look at Nadal and immediately think, MONKEY MAN!

  3. Jociegal - Seriously, Lefts and Rights are HARD. And people look like animals - sometimes it can't be helped.

    Becky - Gawd, you're so right. It's Nadal has a bit of the primate about him. It's no one's fault -it just is!

  4. :) Well at least you stayed awake during the lecture. I have one lecturer who looks exactly like an owl. It is a bit scary.

  5. Does he sing the backstreet boys?

    hmm, that joke would've killed if the rest of the world were as obsessed with whose line as I am.

  6. Fuzzy ears = old men.

    I saw a woman recently who looked like a horse... of course. :-)

  7. Chris - I know, and usually fuzzy ears would kind of repulse me. but I found myself just wanting to scratch behind his ears....that whole puppy dog thing.

  9. Anon - But the question is do you like a wombat or moose when you do it?

  10. lol...I had to look up just exactly what a wombat is...I'm a big guy so I'd have to go with a moose with some grace...#;-)

  11. whoops...perhaps I misread your question on looking at it again...I would say either if the play was good.

  12. Er my fault entirely, look structuring a sentence is hard. I meant "do you LOOK like a wombat or moose" ...which you answered. You show a shameful knowledge of Australian wildlife ;)
