Watercooler Moments!

Well our new weekly segment will soon put that right. As you know, we like to keep our finger on the pulse of the world of lunch, but also on the pulse of the world in general.

So if you get stuck for conversation while making tea this morning, or if you need something to talk about over lunch, here’s some carefully chosen conversation points from the weekend, all wrapped up in one post!

Matt wins X Factor

The 27 year old former painter and decorator was flagged as a possible winner from the start, and, much to the dismay of millions of 13 year old girls (One Direction), and presumably thousands of people with bad Liverpudlian accents (Rebecca) he was crowned winner of X Factor last night. Cardle sang "Many of Horror" by Scottish band Biffy Clyro last night, which is to be released next week, and is sure to be heading for a Christmas #1.

To be discussed with: Any female in the office, and any male whom you suspect to be a closet X Factor fan (of which there are many!)

Paul O Connell sees red on his return to action

Channeling some of that “manic aggression” that he is so famous for right onto the cheek of Ospreys player Jonathan Thomas proved to be a futile exercise for “Paulie” yesterday, as he got himself sent off. Following a tug back from the Ospreys player, O Connell proceeded to throw his right arm back and connected with the player. He was carded to much hostility from the Thomond crowd, and is set to miss next weekend’s return game, and all the festive action too.

To be discussed with: Any red blooded male in the office, and anyone who likes a good scrap!

Christmas is coming!

With only one shopping weekend left until Christmas, people all over the country are panicking over which tea towel to get Granny, and which tie to get Dad.

You are sure to be asked 400 times within the next 12 days “Have you all your presents bought?”, so be sure to get in first with that little chestnut today!

Try out a nifty little Irish site called out if you’re still at a loss over what to get that special someone in your life.

To be discussed with: Anyone who has that look of Xmas panic on their face today!

Oh and if you really get stuck for small talk today, just ask someone if they reckon your likelier to be a hit with the opposite sex if you use a horse for transport rather than a car. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, then search Youtube for Rubberbandits' viral video phenomenon!
