Mad as a balloon you say?


A couple of weeks ago I went out for some drinks with friends who in turn brought some of their own friends along. I spent a pleasant evening chatting and drinking with everyone.


Yesterday I was talking to my friend. He told me that one of the guys I had been talking to that night had mentioned me. I asked what he had said. The response...



He said that you're "pretty but completely bonkers".



What a brilliant contumely compliment!


So my little blogarinos... what's the best compliment and worst insult you've recieved?

Ok, best compliment - "you have beautiful eyes"
Worst - "ever considered a nose job?" Haha!

My friends always insist I am clinically insane, though I can't see it. Fancy a worm cocktail? :D

My ex trying to reassure me about my body after the birth of our son:

"You still have great legs. Okay, they're broader than before, but they're still long!"

Mid shag, too, if you please.

I was once told that I looked like one of the cheeky girls by a drunken Irishman who promptly fell over- now that's an insult!

When I had short hair I used to get compared to Juliette Lewis in What's Eating Gilbert Grape all the time which is quite a nice compliment.

Ive been told I have lovely eyes and nice teeth, but the worst one I can think of is that I have a hairstyle suited for transpotters..

Don't know if it's a compliment or not. A friend of mine once remarked that my appearance reminded her of a well made grandfather clock. I'm still none the wiser.............

Someone once told me I had nice eyes. Again, i'm none the wiser...........

A group of friends I hadn't seen for a while.

"We played the Rizla game yesterday."

You know, the game when you have the name of a famous person written on a rizla stuck to your head and you have to guess who you are by asking the others questions.

"And you were one of the people."

Aw.

I was once called "the pony-tailed stallion". When I was younger I did gymnastics. I did something incorrectly while using the bar (like parallel bars but only one) and the instructor called me a "demented dinosaur". I promptly fell off the bar, laughing too much to hold on. Until I hit the ground, at which point I quickly stopped laughing.

An old man in the post office "You're lovely you are. You remind me of my Mum".

Gosh, thanks...

Best compliment - old boyfriend once said I had "cupcake boobs" - I've no idea what it means, but it made me laugh.
Worst insult - being told by a bloke in a bar that I looked like Robert Smith. Bah.

Compliment and insult rolled into one by being told that I am 'a very nice person' which is longhand for as ugly as sin.

Heather said...

Cello, Not nice! Never nice! Having met you I can say that you you are lovely, charming and eloquent, and beautiful to boot.
