My computer is in for repair. Blogging is going to suffer in rhe next week.
We are going to port stephens tomorrow.
The other day I got a letter from one of my super places telling me my current balance.
It seems to have dropped quite a bit thanks to the GFC and fees.
Looks like i’ll have to reconsider retiring in a couple of years. This account had about $100 in it last time i got a letter.
People who have ‘Australia – love it or leave it’ stickers annoy me. Obviously they are complaining which would imply they don’t love having different cultures present so to them I say. Australia – love it or leave it, preferably leave it.
Whats with people tagging postcodes now instead of miss spelt tag names. It’s so lame…2080 reprazent!
One more thing, How come short shorts, bum bags and adidas caps worn on the back of your head with a 3 metre long rats tail hanging down, are seen as cool? People who hang outside shopping centres all day used to look intimidating with big baggy pants and long shirts. These days they look like a cross between AFL players, American tourists and 6 year old boys from bogan land.
After Oscar had 2 spoons of his dinner and decided that was enough, it was time to take him for a walk to fill in time until bed time.
So off the two of us went, him screaming in the pram and me sweating as I pushed it up the hill.
After 20 mins of him screaming the appeal of wandering the streets on a lovely summerish arvo was diminishing dramatically. But i had to press on as it was still another 5 mins until we would be home.
It was at this point we went under a tree along the footpath. Going under trees is not normally a blog worthy experience, but today it was. Whilst passing under the tree a bird decided to defecate all over my face and arms.
I know what you are thinking – how did a bird crap on my face? Was I looking up? No I wasn’t. And the reason I have called this post ‘house bird’ is that the bird must have been the size of a house to release that much carnage from it’s back door. I felt it spray me from the top of my head, all over my face and my arms.
The 5 minute walk home from this point was significantly reduced by my now fast moving legs.
If there is dog poo lurking in grass you can be guaranteed that my shoes will find it. I get poo attacks from below and above and I’m sure Oscar will find ways of covering the horizontal region too.
I had to blog again just so that last post moves down peoples RSS a bit.
This is another one of those “you are an amazing person if you make it to the end of this video” videos.
Thanks Spike for finding this painful experience.
Howie’s Ye Olde Shoppe of Global Goodness has had a fresh coat of paint and a restock of the shelves.
Never on sale but always saving!
since getting an Iphone i have been neglecting blogs big time. I see something and i twitter it or send it straight to facebook instead of blogging. Shame.
I did it, I developed the 2 bestest iPone apps ever.

We just spent 2 days up in Newcastle for a wedding for a work buddy.
Often wedding sermons bore me a bit casue they are all smooshy but this one was cool, the dude even made jokes about incest.
The place we stayed was ok but nothing special, i guess that’s what you get when you look for super cheap on wotif.
So I now have an Iphone. My old phone has been spending the last few weeks having seizures so it was time to opt out of my contract and get me a unique and unpopular iphone.
Because i’m a MobilbeMe customer i can send messages to my phone in an attempt to get it back if it’s stolen.
I thought i would test this message system.
this image should also boost blog hits which have been slipping lately, nothing like boobs to get the google referrals rolling in.
That’s it! My last weekend away from home with work is done.
Blackstump was mild, in weather, content, attendance and enjoyment.
