Today jenny and I went on an adventure to the blue mountains.
This is us at the bottom of my driveway.
this is us on the highway somewhere, just put the camera on the dashboard, I’m sure jenny is looking at the road.
the three sisters
the valley and the side of one of the sisters (probably her hip)
We also went on the scenic railway down to the bottom of the valley, that was fun, we then wandered along the boardwalk looking at the rainforest and birds and stuff to the bottom of the scenic cable car thing.
and here is jenny pretending to be a wheel.
Jenny glances over to howie with a really cute innocent face and says “Am I really a turd burger?”
so cute, and no jenny your not a turd burger
In response to the previous post.
Reducing the risk of food posioning and infection, jenny and I just went to Pizza Hut and had the all you can eat works.
Man i feel bloated.
i need to lay down
It has been brought to my attention that after all my hype about getting a camera shoved up my bum and down my throat. That I never actually told anyone the results.
So heres the go.
I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, apparently its quite common and not a severe case. But it does mean my bowels get irritated, hence the catchy name of the syndrome.
I have to take Metamucil everyday and be careful with my diet and food preparation as I am more susceptible to food poisoning and infections.
So there you go, the dude thinks that’s why I throw up and have diharea so much is because I so often have an infection or food poisoning because of my irritated bowel.

my blog visits are going down big time.
I think its mostly due to my comments being broken so people cant interact, but maybe also due to that fact I haven’t said anything funny or controversial in a long time.
hmmm what can I say that’s controversial or will rustle up some hits.
I would tell you my most embarrassing moments but all of the ones that come to mind involve me not having any pants on or losing pants if I did have them on. So maybe that’s not the ticket.
Instead I think I might list the people who if I was to spend a minute alone with in a room I would find it hard to not connect my fist with their heads.
Reason for beating, well he tires to be funny and really just inst, but that’s not why I’d want to hit him. The real reason I’d want to hit him is because of his stupid haircut with that stupid fringe combed across to one side of his forehead. In fact I’m finding it hard to type now because I find my hands clenching as I think about his fringe…grrrr
Well he gets a punch, probably a softer punch than tim, just cause he’s old. Anyway he gets a punch for not “loving our neighbour” and also for always wearing a grey suit. I mean come on Phil grey suits are soo 70’s
for leading this country
for hosting the worst late night talk show in the history of the universe. For having a stupid hair style very similar to Tim Fergusson. For always talking about himself during interviews with other people. for wasting airtime. Oh Conan in one minute I reckon a few punches could be thrown at your head.
The hooley doleys
For being allowed to influence children. Coming generations of kiddies are all going to end up in therapy all because three middle aged men bought a handycam and decided to dance around in their pyjamas
for making the worst films in the history of the world, over and over again.
The rest I cant be bothered giving reasons for, but Its not hard to find reasons to punch the following.
Jar Jar Binks
George W Bush
Tim Fergusson (again)
Carl Scully (when he was transport minister)
Anyone who goes on a reality tv show (excluding ‘the mole’)
oh the list goes on.
ok so maybe I don’t really want to condone punching these people in the head. but that was a rundown on some of the famous people I struggle with, who make my cringe or make me angry. Don’t go punching them in the street if you see them.
Well yep I’m home now from Armidale.
It was probably one of the best armidale trips i have had. Its much better knowing someone else aswell as my parents.
I think jenny coped ok, shes very brave.
On our way home today we cut across to the coast dropping in a port maquarie for lunch.
Todays CD’s in the car where.
Xavier Rudd – Solace
Robbie Williams – Swing while your winning
Counting Crows – Hard candy
Paul Colman Trio – Live (electric)
Various Artists – In the name of love
Train – Drops of jupiter
Audio Adrenaline – under dog
Howie compilation – Uts all about me
John Butler Trio – sunrise over sea
and that is that.
And still over a week left of holidays, oh the bliss.
Well here we are on our last night in Armidale.
been a pleasent experience.
lets see last ngiht i stepped in what smells like human vommit. And yes i was bare foot.
actually thats probably the only dodgy thign thats happened.
A few dvd’s watched, some new clothes (thanks mother) a trip to koorong.
Today jenny and i Hung out with my nan for a bit. That was fun she said jenny “looked nice:” and in reference to me and jenny she said “you’re a good picker”. Good old nan. We took her to Maccas, her favourite place, sat around eating happy meals then wheeled her back to the parents house.
this afternoon jenny and i ventured out to the Armidale Dam, damn exciting place, it had some grass and some water. We played frisbee and ate biscuits and rolls.
tomorrow we are leaving early and gonna travel across to the coast and back down that way.
“Bearable one day, best to leave the next”
Well here we are in down town Armidale.
And oh wat a amazing town it is.
We left hornsby at around 11:15am yesterday and arrived here at about 6:15pm. We stopped for lunch in singleton and then again for a break in tamworth.
we listened to:
John Mayer – Room for Squares
The Lads – Live
Jewel – Pieces of you
Barenaked ladies – best of
Diesel – Singled out
Jamie Cullum – Twenty something
After we arrived we found ourselves walking around the street to some old ladies house. We where all led into her garage where she bombarded my mother with bread, telling her to take as much as she wanted.
The armidale underworld is alive and kicking. THey dont deal in arms and drugs and hi fi equitment. Up here they are on the hard stuff. Bread. Little old ladies across the new england some how aquiring bread that has just “fallen off the back of a truck”, then pasing it out to their fellow grandma gangsters.
Welcome to the Armidale hood.
today we need something to do.
Well howie’s picnic of fun lived up to its name. It was fun.
Although today my body is very stiff and sore. I was so sporty i played frisbee and soccer and footy and more frisbee.
thanks everyone who came.
dinner last ngiht was fun too. I never go out to dinner at reasteraunts, its not something i like doing lots but every now and then its nice to fe grown up and go out to dinner.
And today i went to the AFL
the swans one.
I tell you what being on holidays is awsome.
The picnic of fun is going to be fun.
noon til whenever
So this morning we decked ourselves out in gear from wombat wardrobe.
And did our hair the nice old school way, tom had a part and i had the comb forward.
twas a fun filled night.
The fun began at 8pm when Sam came and picked me up. We drove to St leonards then trained it into town hall.
We joined the queue of Star Wars fans at about 9:15 and slowly our group grew over the next 3 hours as we progressed about 6 inches in the line.
Once inside the cinema, there was a competition for the best dressed and some star wars trivia.
The whole cinema turned nasty when the film was supposed to begin and instead in all greater unions wisdom they played 20 minutes of advertisements and trailers. There was booing and shouting. All quite entertaining.
The film itself. Well it was definitely much better than episode 1 and probably better than 2 as well. I’m so tired its hard to remember what even happened. Umm Yoda did some kick but fighting again. My main man R2D2 also kicked some but. He’s so cute.
The best thing about it was that jar jar binks only had about 2 seconds of screen time and in that 2 seconds he didn’t say anything.
I’m gonna give it 5 / 7 I might elaborate more when I have some brain cells.
Its getting quite anoying not having working comments.
Hannah and i just danced for about an hour to the cat empire.
Here is two photos of myself and jenny on our adventurous day to Parramatta.
It seems we where spotted by some paparazi on strathfield station.
As you will probably find these photos in most gossip magazines this month I thought it would be good to release the photos before the mags get to it.
And this way you see them for free.
I know I know I’ve been a bit slack the last few days with not much posting.
Well this new red background has something to do with it. You see i have been creating thehowie.net and its slowly coming together.
still a few hitches and much more content required but the basics are down.
oh and i still need to fix the comments on here
Yesterday at work we had coloured hair spray.
Someone manages to spray it in my right eye. (accidently) but it hurt a lot.
Then last night when i had a shower to wash out the hair spray i managed to get both shampoo and soap in my right eye aswell.
on a side note a lot of my hair ended up in the bottom of the shower last night too, i think my rate of balding has increased. The thinning process has begun.
