A pedido del unico lector varon que deja comentarios de manera peridoca en este blog:

1-. "el hombre se casa de negro por que es un cochino culiao"
(Robado del Blog de Endora, quien a su vez lo escogio del blog de mi hermano Felipe. "el maestro del metro cuadrado".)

2-."...masculinity is a shared set of assumptions and values that men can either accept or reject. You like football? then you also like music, beer, thumping people, grabing ladies' breast, and money. you're a rugby or cricket man? You like Dire Straits or Mozart, wire, pinching' ladies bottoms and money. You don't fill into either comp? Macho, nein danke? In whic case it must follow that you are a pacifist vegetarian, studious oblivios to the charms of Michelle Pfeifer, who thinks that only leering wideboys listen to Luther Vandross".
Nick Honsby. Fever Pitch, Penguin Books, 200, p.72

3-"Look at all the things that can be wrong for men. There's the nothing-happening-at all-problem, the too-much-happening-too-soon problem; there's teh size-doesn't matter-except-in-my-case problem, the failing-to-deliver-the-goods-problem.. And what do women have to worry about? A handfull of celluilite? Join the Club.
Nick Hornsby, High Fidelity, Penguin Books, 200, p.94.

4-Cal: [David and Cal Playing a video Game] You're *gay* now?
David: No, I'm not gay I'm just celibate.
Cal: I think? I mean, that sounds ga- I just want you to know this is like the first conversation of like three conversations that leads to you being gay. Like... there's this and then in a year it's like, "Oh you know, I kinda wanna, ya know, get back out there but I think I like guys" and then there's the big, "Oh I'm I'm a g-gay guy now".
David: You're gay for saying that.
Cal: I'm gay for saying that?
David: You know how I know you're gay?
Cal: How? How do you know I'm gay?
David: Because you macramed yourself a pair of jean shorts.
Cal: You know how I know *you're* gay? You just told me you're not sleeping with women any more.
David: You know how I know that you're gay?
Cal: How? Cuz you're gay? and you can tell who other gay people are.
David: You know how I know you're gay?
Cal: How?
David: You like Coldplay.

Matrimonio perfecto

Este lolo es el autor de High Fidelity, y un par de libros mas que se han hecho películas. ME ha sacado hartas carcajadas.

"What you don't ever catch a glimpse of on your wedding day -because how could you?- is that some days you will hate your spouse, that you will look at him and regret ever exchanging a word with him, let alone a ring and bodily fluids. Nor is it possible to foresee the desperation and depression, the sense that your life is over, the occasional urge to hit your whining children, even though hitting them is something you knew for a fact you would never do. And of course you don't think of having affairs, and when you get to that stage in life when you do (and everyone gets there sooner or later), you don't think of the sick feeling you get in your stomach when you're conducting them. And nor do you think in the husband waking up in the morning and being someone you don't recognize. If anyone thought about any of these things, then no one would ever get married, of course they wouldn't; in fact, the impulse of marry would come from the same place as the impulse of drink a bottle of bleach, and those are the kinds of impulses we try to ignore, because getting married -or finding the partner whom we will want to spend our lives with and have children by- is in our agenda. It's something we know we will do one day, and if you take that away from us then we are left with promotions at work and the possibility of a winning lottery ticket, and it's not enough, so we kid ourselves that it is possible to enter these partnerships and be faced only with the problems of mud removal, and then we became unhappy and take Prozac and then we get divorced and die alone."

Es del todo imposible en estos tiempos deducir sobre el nivel educativo de la gente por la manera en que hablan, o se viste, o por sus gustos musicales. Resulta mas prudente tratar a cualquiera que conozcas como un intelectual destacado"
MacEwan, Ian, Expiacion, Anagrama, 2005, pag 423.
