Snippets

And stay out!

When will people learn not to cross flooded waterways?

Dude looks like a creepy wax figure.

Pfft! I do this every year!

I agree with Gervais

And how many people have overdosed on other drugs in the same period?

Oh, please!

Adios. He was one of my favourites.

Every time I hear her speak, I want to stab myself in the ear canal. "How's all that hopey changey stuff workin' out for ya?" Grr!

How was everyone's weekend?

I had the best lunch I've EVER EATEN IN MY LIFE at a local restaurant just down the road from me on Sunday.

Finished by a free home-made limoncello.

I am indeed living the life.

Puss In Boots said...

That's a big call! What did you have?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Just decent well made food in a quiet courtyard and a couple of glasses of the good stuff, Puss.

Nothing flash.

shitbmxrider said...

Not much really.. My girlfriend proposed to me, thats about it...

Puss In Boots said...

Sounds good, Ramon. I had fish & chips on the beach.

BMX - Congrats! Did you say yes?

Mr E Discharge said...

Altona Bi-Election.

Confronted by grinning politicians at every turn.

shitbmxrider said...

Of course I did!

Perseus said...

Small Kraut got really really drunk at a bar and turned up at my house at 1am, hardly able to stand. I was having a quiet night with two friends from Melbourne. She asked if she could stay because she was too drink to get home. She went to (my) bed at 1am. At 3am I got into bed and she pashed me but her breath smelt like vomit and alcohol.

The next morning she said, "Did I kiss you?"

I said, "For a few seconds."

She said, "Sorry, I was very drunk. I thought your were Matt."

"Who is Matt?" I asked.

"Oh, this guy..."

Come on BMX, cough up more details.

That's awesome, BMX. Congrats!

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Yeah BMX.

Are you getting married in white?

Kettle said...

Ramon by "best lunch I've EVER EATEN IN MY LIFE ... finished by a free home-made limoncello" do you mean you had lunch at Melba's place?

[I'm choosing to ignore "local restaurant" in your sentence because it doesn't fit with "Melba's place".]

And congrats BMX!

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I think Melba's hit a bit of a snag with her limoncello, Kettle.

Kettle said...

And by "snag" do you mean it's been bottled, shared and enjoyed so now there's none left? Or something less yellow hat?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

"Snag" as in "why the fuck isn't this working properly; fuck it, I'll bottle it anyway".

shitbmxrider said...

Well, we were at a friends art exhibition in Northcoat, and at the after party, there were people doing all sorts of poetry and the like...

What I didn't know, was that my (now)fiance had already organised with the artist to do some poetry of her own. In which she proposed to me at the end.

I never saw it coming!

Ahh, much was drunk, many laughs had and many hugs given... was good fun

And you better beleive ill be dressed in white...

Melba said...

Oh Ramon, yes, you have hit the mark a bit.

But you know what? Last night I bottled the fucker. Made the syrup on Saturday, mixed it in yesterday (after straining the limoncello twice through an old hanky. Clean.)

Bottled into 1 x Grey Goose empty and 1 x Absolut empty.

It's a bit orange though. Will see what the next 40 days do to it.

Melba said...

And congrats BMX. Even though I don't know you.

Good one.

Leilani said...

Puss, like your style

Ramon, give us a hint on the restaurant.

BMX (or should I just call you Shit?) congrats.

Perseus - how did the second date go?

wari lasi said...

I've missed this place. I asked someone to marry me on Sunday too. She asked the next day if I was serious, which I was. No, I'm not BMX's girlfriend before anyone asks, and congrats to you good sir.

Nice post Puss, you could start your own version of Crikey.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Nice post Puss, you could start your own version of Crikey.

Couldn't possibly be worse than the current version of Crikey.

Perseus said...

Leilani... second date with Songstress postponed, but replaced with two appointments.

She is staying at my house this Saturday night after a gig that happens to be across the road from my house (I got her the gig).

Then, the second date is next Wednesday (24th).

It may make more sense to have the sleepover after the second date, not before it, but, that's just how the cards fell.

My band is playing on the 26th and she may come to that as well.

Wari - so, did she say yes? Are you getting married? Is it the Thai chick you sent me a photo of?

squib said...

Congrats BMX and maybe Wari, too (?)

I can't even remember what I did on the weekend, Puss, so featureless have the days and weeks and years become… oh wait, I saw Doctor Who. I thought it was rubbish although I was glad to see the Gallifrey mob are returning because I like the way they dress

Puss In Boots said...

I post thought-provoking pieces of art, and hardly anyone comments. I post a few links and I get praise? You people are weird!

Are congratulations in order, Wari?

I've never seen Dr Who, squib.

Has anyone been to New York? The boy and I are thinking of going in June. The all important question is, are all the squirrels rabid? I love squirrels, and I would be very disappointed if I couldn't sit in Central Park and laugh at their antics for fear of being bitten by a rabid one.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I've been to New York Puss.

From memory, the squirrels were greatly overrated.

And possibly rabid.

The answer is to not get too close to the little fuckers.

wari lasi said...

Couldn't possibly be worse than the current version of Crikey.

Why are you so dark on Crikey Ramon? It has its obvious biases but less I think than the mainstream rags. I like FDOTM and I thought you'd approve of its very blatant left wing leanings.

wari lasi said...

Perseus - Yep, and yep. But it requires some clarification. I keep promising Witchie a long email on the whole scenario. I've pulled the long engagement routine though. We'll do the nuptials thing next Valentine's Day assuming things continue to go as well as they have for the last 4 months.

Squib and Puss - Yep as well.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I do love First Dog, wari but I don't think you can call Crikey left wing.

Bernard Keane is a libitarian, Stephen Mayne is a former advisor to Jeff Kennett and Greg Bairns is a former Liberal Party candidate.

My chief objection to Crickey these days is that it's host to a collection of dull conspiracy theorists.

Puss In Boots said...

Squirrels are not overrated! How dare you, Ramon! I was fascinated by them in Europe. They are the funniest creatures alive. Unless their US cousins are nothing alike. In which case, I take my faux outrage back.

Perseus said...

Squirrels are cute, but I prefer otters. You know, in that 'small cute animal' subgenre. I have never seen an otter in the wild but.

Puss In Boots said...

I have Perseus! On an island, off the coast of Chile. He was floating on his back and hitting molluscs against a rock on his stomach. So cute!

Mr E Discharge said...

Stephen Mayne is a former advisor to Jeff Kennett

I"m pleased and proud to have had a minor role in the "Great Ted Whitten State Funeral Affair" that got him sacked.

squib said...

I wanted to be an otter once

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

New York City squirrels are rubbish, Puss.

Think rats with fluffy tails.

notcatlick said...

Yeah, links are what make sausages, I guess.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Come again, Squib?

squib said...

You know when you go to the zoo and you ask yourself which animal you'd be if you weren't human and you had a choice and so you look at the otters having a swell time and you decide you want to be one? Don't tell me you've never done that, Ramon

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

When I go to the zoo I usually ask myself "is their cafe licenced", Squib.

Puss In Boots said...

I do that, squib. I always pick the squirrels or the giraffes.

squib said...

Puss, we are clearly more profound than some people

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Yeah, but I'm the one who will be enjoying a beer over lunch.

I'd like to be a koala. They eat. They sleep. They get cuddled. And then they do it all over again. All day. Awesome.

Alex said...

Congratulations to ShitBMX and maybe Wari too? Possibly, I think.
