Harriet. I really really want to know, please, if you would be so kind. In what sense are you blonde on the inside? And how do you know? (The outside bit I have seen for myself.)

Perhaps it would be interesting to see how other readers interpret the phrase before you answer.

Well - is a bit of a long story, but:

I was in a meeting recently that got quite heated (lots of fists thumping on tables and threats to sue, counter-sue and contra-counter sue flying around). I foolishly tried to dispel a bit of tension with a lighthearted (and honestly pretty funny) comment, whereupon one person turned to me and said (rather crossly) "you really are blonde on the inside as well, aren't you ?"

It's kind of stuck, and I was feeling the lack of a catchy sign-off.

Am reliably informed by baby brother that said sobriquet is usually applied to a non-blonde, hence "blonde on the inside and the outside".

What a cad! Enough to put one off City lawyers...

By the way, thanks for the contra-counter-sue, shall try to use that surreptitiously in conversation in the next week.

I think it's quite clear: blonde (hair colour) on the outside, and blonde (as in "dizzy") on the inside.

Not that I've ever met you Harriet, so no offence meant.

...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.

Funny, Harriet was talking about you last night as if she HAD met you. I'm now a little confused...

Nope - the confusion is mine - I thought I had met Ivanhoe at the postal meeting, but it was (I think) Tharg ?

See, I am blonde on the inside !

No, she met you. and you are you. both of you.
Wednesday 21 April 2004 1.41pm
Of course she's met me. You were there, weren't you?

...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.

Are you blonde all the way through as well? Perhaps we'd better go somewhere more glamorous next time like Pacha?

Yes, you met me at the postal meeting, but I wasn't Tharg then. You also met Mapmaker, who is also Ivanhoe.
