Introspection ahoy!

For some reason, this site seems very popular with podiatrists*, who like to pop in now and then to brighten our day with their very special brand of nonsense.

Yesterday “Flecy” asked

Interesting blog. It would be great if you can provide more details about it. Thanks you.

Well, “Flecy”, I’m glad you asked.

The Site Formally Known As** – and for convenience, we usually call it TSFKA – was created just over two years ago in the aftermath of two other sites crashing and burning in an orgy of screaming and painful death.

Here at TSFKA we’re passionate about;
* Eating,
* Drinking,
* Shoes,
* Politics,
* Chocolate,
* Cats,
* More eating,
* More drinking,
* Handbags,
* Poetry and
* The evil of owls.

Contributors tend in drift in and out, but major ones tend to be;
Perseus – Texan Goth and musician. Living in a small coastal town in Victoria, his hilarious antics in trying to find love has delighted many and lead to the creation of the term ‘love gumby”,

Squib – Poet, badge-maker and party-thrower extraordinaire,

Puss in Boots – Short chick and heat freak, living in Brisbane. Her handbag and shoe collection has delighted some and horrified many.

Lewd Bob – Often hilarious and possibly deranged. Currently absent, and

Me – Turn Ons include drinking, eating, staring moodily out of the window and the Labor Party. Turn Offs include Liberals and owls.

I think that just about covers it.

Oh and if you could work the expression “dick-biscuit” into your everyday conversation, that would be ace.

* Possibly because they’re looking forward to all the work Puss will bring in, once she gets a bit older.

** We’re well aware of the grammatical error in the title, so there’s no need to point it out.


Again.

I thought we were also passionate about giant squids?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Damn!

I knew I'd leave out something!

Cath said...

What about pretentious alleged appreciation of poetry?

Mr E Discharge said...

Hooray!
Someone who cuts other peoples toe nails for a living finds the blog "interesting".

Well done all.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

It is indeed a proud moment, Mr E.

We should get an award, or a prize or something.

Mr E Discharge said...

I haven't been this excited about Nails since Deltagate!

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

*Snort!*

Puss In Boots said...

Once I have finished my walk-in-robe, I will post a photo for everyone. Then you can admire/stare in horror at my wall of shoes.

Moving has been very stressful. The Boy has not been very helpful in reducing said stress.

Joanie said...

You forgot Melba! Shame!

Mr E Discharge said...

You also forgot about Joanie!

Whoever the fuck Joanie is!

But Shame anyway

And Me!

Poor little old me, still trapped in a third world backwater.

On holidays for 4 weeks, where I stood Witchie up (shame on me, and sorry again Witchie) and the last 3 weeks moving on to a boat. The internet was successfully connected two days ago.

I just spent an hour reading all the election stuff here on TSFKA and all I can say is that it was much better reading than the "real" coverage, whatever that is.

Kettle said...

I was going to ask about Melba. Have you guys invited her to become a contributor but she turned you down? She is a classy lass (seriously).

Also, I vote EMS should join the contributors list, and that Squib should post more, and that Perseus and Lewd should stop ignoring us, and that Ramon should have his own show on the ABC on Sunday mornings.

I also think there should be more Witchy. More Witchy, I say.

And Alex, do you have a blog? And if not, why not?

And who is Joanie, anyway?

Kettle said...

And Wari! Someone suggested a coupla weeks ago that you, Perseus and Lewd may all be one person. But if not, there should be more Wari!

wari lasi said...

I'm almost certain, without being able to provide psychiatric proof, that Perseus, Lewd Bob and myself are all different people.

And rest assured that if I posted about my real life, no-one would believe it!

So no, you don't want more Wari.

I vote EMS should join the contributors list,

Trust me, you don't want this to happen.

Seriously - posts about trifle do not a blog make.

Plus, I wouldn't be able to handle the pressure. It would make me turn to the evil drink. And none of us want that.

But bless you for saying so anyway, Kettle. Also, I second all your other suggestions.

Alex said...

I haven't been this excited about Nails since Deltagate!

Thank you, Mr E. I really needed a laugh like that.

Once I have finished my walk-in-robe, I will post a photo for everyone. Then you can admire/stare in horror at my wall of shoes.

Looking forward to it, Puss.

And Alex, do you have a blog? And if not, why not?

Kettle, apart from some software projects, this is the only presence I have on the web (No, no FaceBook). I found this crowd way back in the early-to-mid TSSH days, but only started commenting sort-of-recently when Perseus made a plea for lurkers to join in and give something back. Issues of sexual identification aside, I don't think I'm capable of producing much that's of any interest. I do support all of your contributor related suggestions, though. I was especially keen on that one about EMS, but it seems that's been knocked on the head now.

patchouligirl said...

It has been a long time between weekend wraps but with all the fun of the election who can complain?

Mr E Discharge said...

Ramon should have his own show on the ABC on Sunday mornings.

Inserters?

Alex said...

I would relish the opportunity to see Ramon host a chat session with Piers Akerman, Andrew Bolt and David Marr.

Alex said...

Especially if there was inserting involved.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I'm not too sure the ABC would welcome someone whose favourite phrase is "oleaginous cunt", Alex.

More than happy to have Melba as a contributing author here, if she wanted too.

WitchOne said...

Kettle, you're lovely, thank-you. I definitely second your other suggestions!

After being made redundant from my job on Monday I have been plotting revenge, today I have a meeting (in an hour in fact, I better get dressed!) at which I expect some dreams of revenge to come true.

I'm not bitter at all.

Noooo........

WitchOne said...

Oh, Wari, I did find it strange that your other half knocked our meeting on the head, I would have been by myself, but not a single woman from the evil interwebs out to steal her man. So yes, I was perplexed to say the least.

Happy for you anyway when I heard your good news.

Melba said...

Oh, thanks Kettle sweetie! I don't think I've ever been described as classy and I can only think it's because you haven't met me.

And who IS Joanie? I took the comment to be a bit of a shit-stir. But thanks?

And Ramon, thank you for the offer of contributor (put in a bit of a spot weren't you, old chum) but I struggle to keep my own bloody thing going. I am more than happy to just come here and read and occasionally comment.

But where oh where are Perseus and Bob. I really miss them and I'm thinking I pushed P too far with the flotilla thing. Because you know it's all about me...

Alex said...

I'm not too sure the ABC would welcome someone whose favourite phrase is "oleaginous cunt", Alex.

Their loss, Ramon. Still, they employ The Chaser team, don't they? Surely you're more tasteful and highbrow than them.

Not really Alex, no.

Fad MD said...

You're evidenty not too fussy about contributers... hey gave me the keys to the car for a couple of posts.
