What is your view on wearing hats, caps, beanies etc in church?
Personally i think its fine to wear a hat in church, I dont think its disrespectful to God or the people around me. People should be able to come before God in way that is comfortable for them, i guess thats why there are so many denominations and different styles of services and stuff within those denominations.
this evening jenny and myself where having a romantic night in the city, we where heading for pancakes on the rocks but unfortunately there was a massive line to get into it so we ended up going to city extra instead.
Anyway on the way we decided to walk from central station to the rocks. Jenny needed to wee so we stopped off in some toilets in the world square building. I decided that I needed to wee too so I went off into the boys toilets. I went to the end cubical and did my business then I walked across to the sinks to wash my hands. There was another man washing his hands and I noticed a long white thing on the back of his pants. At first I thought it was a towel or something like waiters have but then I realised it was a long strip of toilet paper. I had a dilemma, do I tell him and he is really embarrassed or do I tell him and he gets angry and punches my head off.
I decide to tell him.
Me: “excuse me”
Me “you have toilet paper hanging out the back of your pants”
The man looked quite puzzled and I don’t think he understood what I was saying,
Me: “there is toilet paper hanging out of your pants”
He began to turn around to see for himself but as he turned his body the paper turned with him so he didn’t see it, at this stage I think he got a bit confused as to what the hell I was talking about. I then realised that verbally this wasn’t working and I took the plunge and lent over and grabbed the end of the toilet paper. He was a bit shocked probably wondering why this strange young man with funny eyes is reaching around below his bottom. As I lifted the dangling end of the toilet paper up to where he could see it his embarrassment suddenly became very apparent across his face.
Man: “thankyou thankyou thankyou”
Me: “No worries”
and that was that I left the bathroom and met jenny at the end of the corridor and the man walked out very slowly behind us.
poor fella, I hope I didn’t ruin a fancy dress costume or anything.
I went into this film not knowing anything about it and I cant recall seeing a trailer for it. So I didn’t have any preconceived ideas of what sort of film it would be and whether or not it would be good.
But it was good, ewan mcgreggor is a bit of a hottie. He does well that boy and being a fellow Scotsman helps.
A film about a bunch of people who have been artificially made but a rich crazy doctor who builds these people so he can sell there organs to rich humans.
The twist is that the people that the doctor built think they are real humans and that they live in an underground paradise. But really they are in a unused army bunker in the dessert.
That’s not the best explanation of it. I’m sorry.
But it was a good film I enjoyed it and am giving it 5 / 7
Over the years myself and tom have copped a lot of flack for our commitment to the Compact disc constitution which we developed. But we have stood by it.
Often people say how they can see how it may be a good idea but they couldn’t see themselves putting into practice, well I have a testimonial for you to read.
Bowen thought the constitution was a funny joke and printed it out and stuck it around a radio station he was working in but the other day a received a message from him saying “You’re a genius howie”
I replied asking him why?
He responded with this.
“Well since loosely following your cd constitution I have been able to listen to my favourite albums more often rather than waiting a year because I had burnt them out ?”
It really works folks, it preserves music, it liberates music, it energises music, it prolongs the life of good music.
It would seem as if i am heading off to Greece in three weeks. Like last year.
All a bit sudden, my work is like that.
It seems to me that God seems to have a humerous sense of timing, he never seems to d things with plenty of time to spare, i think thats why we get on so well! Anyway a few prayers will be sent up in the next three weeks. as around $3500 neede be rased for me, but there i s three of us so really its $10,500 that needs to be raised in the next three weeks. Ah i love it!
So yay for my loyal readers, feel free to go balistic on the ads, send up prayer and give me dosh.
I love jenny, and yay for putting up with me for 6 months so far.
David and I just saw the oyster farmer.
I know a lot of people say that Australian films are dodgy and they have nothing on Hollywood. But I thinks its just that we have been bombarded by Hollywood and they have explosions and famous actors but really most of the films that Hollywood pump out are just remakes of old films or films that are identical to each other but they give them new names and have different actors.
I think we should support Australian films, I mean it seems they need the support just watching the intro to and Australian film and you see that it has been funded by about 6 film companies.
On to the film itself.
I thought it was a great little film, and it was really fun too see all these places that I know so well up there on the screen. Most of the film was filmed around brooklyn and mooney mooney. A good story that didn’t really go anywhere but that was nice. Some good lines and great characters, I felt like I was there on the waters edge of the hawksberry hanging out with these rough yocals.
There was some continuity issues regardi9ng cityrail trains but I’ll let them pass. The average punter isn’t going to notice the difference in carriage types in different shots and the number of carriages and stuff. A few other little
I would like to give this film 6 / 7
But unfortunately the makes of this film chucked in an un needed quite graphic sex scene.
So I’m bringing it down to 4.5 / 7

Today david bought me lunch.
I like lunch and i like david.
I had no money today and i was wondering what i was going to do about lunch then david came on msn and asked if he could buy me lunch.
I think more people should buy each other lunch, little random acts of kindness.
I’m going to start a movement called “Edible Kindness”
Its easy, buy lunch for someone each week. one person per week.
lets take it to the globe
last ngiht was a fun eveing.
Myself,, jenny and tom all went to see james’s band intone play at the carringbah bizzo. Tom drove and we didn’t get lost but we did take a very ‘scenic’ route to get there. Lots of laughs and funnys. Once we arrived we watched intone then went in search of food. We ended up having take away Chinese. But with no plates or bowels it posed to be a bit of a challenge to eat it. We went back to the car and sat in the car to eat our dinner. Jenny made trays for me and tom by ripping a cardboard box in half. Tom spilt food on his lap even with his cardboard tray.
Then we drove home.
One thing we discussed in the car is. Where has scott gone? He seems to have disappeared of the blog commenting world. Are you dead scott? Are you too cool for blogs?
Have you purchased several pink shirts and tight jeans along with a brand name sweat band for your wrist and you are too embarrassed to comment because you think we might tease you?
Today a man in a business suit walked past our office carrying a dead bird in his hand.
Margy is a ladyy that is short.
that is all
Well this eveing jenny and i saw Mr and Mrs Smith.
Right from the outset i’m going to give it 2.5 / 7.
It was a dodgy film, i think i have come to the conclusion that i dont really like brad pitt in films. Ok he was good in oceans 11 but thats a bout it.
It was a poor story, two assasains who have secret identities, they each get a job to kill the other. At first they fight asnd try to kill each other, but then ofcourse they realise they do love each other and end up kissing instead of shooting.
dont bother seeing it, even on cheapo tuesday
New York has been hit, London has been hit. Slowly the coalition of the willing is being smacked across the face by terrorism.
So Sydney, is Sydney on the cards for a terrorist strike?
Well howie’s halfpipe has this exclusive story to expose to the people of Sydney.
Terrorism is in our midst. Each day the terrorists are hitting the beautiful harbour city, causing carnage and destruction throughout the CBD. Why is it that these terrorst have manged to slip under the radar why is it that we only hear about overseas terrorist attacks.
Howie’s Halfpipe specialist reporter ‘Robert Andrew’ today spoke with a Sydney security chief ‘David Aitken’.
Mr Aitken was disturbed that state and federal authorities had not yet noticed the attacks of terrorism and that Australia’s biggest city was under threat and no one even knew about it. “Its appalling and disturbing that we spend millions of dollars on security against terrorism and all of it seems to be a waste seeing as they haven’t notices the destruction of our way of life” Mr aitken said.
So where are these terrorist and where are the signs of destruction. We asked Mr aitken to pin point the attacks.
“The attacks are occurring not just once but several times a day, they are affecting tens of thousands of people each day. The terrorists have infiltrated Sydney’s transport network. Using cunning techniques instead of explosions, they are playing a mind game and trying to bring down our freedom and way of life. Instead of planting bombs they are causing ‘service disruptions’ on our rail network. Trains are not appearing at stations, station staff are being impolite. The terrorists are sneakily infiltrating the rail network over a long period of time. Sure explosions have worked in other major cities around the world But here due to the implementation of the GST and high tax rates the terrorists are finding explosives too expensive to purchase is Australia, and it is tedious having to fill out a Business Activity statement every three months.”
Mr Aitken has been in talks with Government Security Officials this week and a special task force is being set up to combat the terrorism in our city.
Code named ‘Operation Timetable”. The special task force will investigate the attacks and implement measures that will help ensure our way of life.
Just yesterday an extremist group called ‘cityrail’ claimed responsibility for the attacks in a short statement posted on a website saying
“it is our intention to dog you, make you late, disrupt your journey and cause city wide frustration.
We are not sorry and it seems you have no power to stop us”
Mr Aitken said “they will be stopped”
