Breaking my rules

I have two rules, never discuss Politics or Religion when I blog
the third rule is coffee cup must be full which it isn't so I'll just go fill it up
.
.
.
.
.
.
Ok right the cup is full now, which means I can break one of my rules and it has to do with Christmas
I believe that Jesus was born in Bethlethem , that he was a real person who lived a full life (maybe even married if you go by some) and was crucified when he was 33 which for those times was a fair life span unless you were Methusla 33 was a fair age
Anyway look as I said He was born, He lived and He died ok fair enough
BUT what I also believe is that at the end of the world He will come down on his horse and fight the dark forces .. you know the bit at the very end of the Bible the ones that says you all gonna die , well it says that we will all rise again and live together in peace as well so I'm not worried about that bit, not in heaven of course because that doesn't exist there isn't any heaven no such thing as fluffy white clouds, just living in peace with everyone who you've lost, every living creature of course that includes animals, dogs and the ant that just crawled accross my desk

I don't believe that Jesus was born in December , shepards tend flocks at night in the summer so unless Jesus was born in Australia he wasn't born in December that would be the pagan winter solstice in December
Do believe that the miracles he performed happend, even though with the loaves and fishes the women did that (think about that one who brings the food on outings the women do)
I believe in the great flood .. been proved scientifically that has
Oh I believe in dinosoars as well God made those, didn't like em wiped em out with a comet same way somtimes you or I make something don't like it so delete it or throw it away

Ok so there you go I've read both Bibles King James and the JW version they both start with Genisis, mention Herod, loves and fishes and Romans and both have the plauges of locusts big floods etc (no mention of dinosoars though) only one has our Saviour actually fighting for us at the end and both call his father Jehovah

As for locusts yes we have them at the moment but seriously I'm not worried because I'll live in peace with everything after the end of the world ...even if I do go online and the Bible don't mention computers, then again if there had been computers in Jesus's lifetime what do you think he would have talked about ??

Readability and size

One of the most important things for anyone reading your page is readability
If they can't read what you've written they won't read it

Now I've seen a couple pages today (yes I've been looking) that where either blue on a dark background or had a flashing gif background I opened that one and went "OH [swear removed]" and closed the page didn't even bother to really look at what was written
The blue text at least I could highlight it but the flashing background oh boy way too much sorry

Of course size (which does matter) comes into play as well, before I post I allways choose "Normal" from the font size drop down list makes the text a little bigger and easier to read

Yes I could because I use Firefox choose [View > Page style > No Style] or hold down the ctrl key and scroll my mouse wheel so text is bigger and on a plain background but hey lazy person here I like to read things straight up

So if you are a theme designer or you are just starting or maybe you don't know anything about CSS and use Custom Colors or a default background, please make sure that things are easily read
If you have to cross your eyes and squint at your page to read it then chances are others will have too as well so make it easy on everyone remember when you are posting what color your page is it's an easy mistake to make because compose is black on white to make the text colour a dark color by habit .. or even yellowish orange or brown..

You may have to highlight some parts of this so you can read it

I'm not that good

I'm not that good, know this for a fact don't go about telling people how wonderful I am boasting to all that can hear because I'm not all that good
If I was magically fantastical with everything we would have 9 working monitors instead of three, and a dozen working printers instead of the few that do work because can't magically fill them with ink ..I'm not that good

If I knew everything it would be boring there wouldn't be anything new left to learn
If I had a darkroom I'd develop my own photographs
If I had a dishwasher the dishes would be washed
A workshop I'd work on the car
but I don't
I don't know everything and I'm not that good, never said I was

What I do know is what I know and how to share it
What I am is straight forward if there is a problem I'll tell you what it is
What I do excel at is double meanings which some just don't get
What I can do is write
What I am isn't perfect and never will be
because no one is perfect and they never can be

I'm telling you he's a plick with ears

No joke that twat next door, the drunken fool upsets the dog yells across the fence at midnight just as I'm about to go to bed that the dogs been barking all night ..blah blah *hic*..fall over in the dark... well don't know if he fell over but he sounded so drunk he possibly did
Anyway the dogs been inside all the time only let her out so she could wee and come back in because the plick with ears taps on his fence so she barks which means I can't leave her outside
besides she don't like being outside at night hates it , ok in the day time but night time she's scared ..woosie dog.
So anyway I yell back at him right mate I'm calling the coppers out on ya, only it's Friday night (Saturday morning) so they're busy aren't they typical hopefully though they will be here tomorrow morning

Had trouble with him before see the goose saga it's on the blog somewhere possibly tagged "dog"
Looks like we might have to take out an AVO on him or maybe a big fat 2 by 4? Just to stop him harassing us by spying on everything we do, the guy is out there at 7am when the hairy one goes off to work, sitting on his back veranda watching , this is the same guy who won't mow his back lawn the bit between the fence and the road because it's the councils job but no one can walk on it as if they would anyway the grass is 6 foot high because it's his
I mow up too but not over his side btw

Oh and it's not just us he harasses either, the neighbour on the other side of him and Greg the lawn mowing guy (2 houses down) and the neighbour on our right I'll swear moved because of him
He won't let his son play with any of the other kids in the street, he's 7 I think and all he does is bounce a football against the wall in his backyard while the other kids are playing in the street.

Here look I'll show you where we live (2 year old Google satelite map), Greg's place has a red roof on the left , ours has an arrow pointing to it (grey roof) in the middle and his (the plick with ears) has a browny red roof on the right... can you see his grass at the back see told you it was long


Pretty bad huh when your long grass shows up on a Google map ...LoL those are trees, you can't really see his grass
Can see the cemetary though ... might even be able to see him sitting hiding on his veranda his head is shiny enough might be able to if you look close
Anyway now it's 2am and I've calmed down a bit I might be able to go to bed now
Stoopid plick hope he did fall over in the dark

To All American Citizens



To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Prime Minister of Australia

In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.
Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas, which she does not fancy).
Your new Prime Minister, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.

Both houses of Congress will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

-----------------------
1. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour,' 'favour,' 'labour,' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and the suffix '-ize' will be replaced by the suffix '-ise.' Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. (Look up 'vocabulary').
-----------------------
2. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as 'like' and 'you know' is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as U.S. English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take into account the reinstated letter 'u' and the elimination of '-ize.'
-----------------------
3. July 4th will be celebrated as a holiday but Halloween and Thanksgiving will not. Christmas will therefore start in the shops on the 1st October to align your holidays with the rest of the world
-----------------------
4. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you're not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting kangaroo . If you can't sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist, then you're not ready to shoot kangaroo...
-----------------------
5. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. Although a permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.
-----------------------
6. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left side with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British and Australian sense of humour.
-----------------------
7. The former USA will adopt UK or AU prices on petrol, whichever is the higher which you have been calling petrol gasoline it's roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it.
-----------------------
8. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with tomato sauce which you insist on calling catsup but with vinegar.
-----------------------
9. The warm, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper Bitish Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. Australian beer is also acceptable, as they are pound for pound the greatest
sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth
- see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.
-----------------------
10. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys and Australian actors as bad guys. Hollywood will also be
required to cast English actors to play English characters. Watching Andie Mac Dowell attempt English dialogue in 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' was an experience akin to having one's ears removed with a cheese grater
and watching Mel, Hugh and Nicole speaking in a foriegn tounge is also unaceptable Australian actors will be required to speak with a proper Australian accent, this may require sub-titles for some of you which mean you may just have to learn to read as well
-----------------------
11. You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancy boys).
-----------------------
12. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the Australians first, no laughing at Shane Warne allowed.
-----------------------
13. You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad.
-----------------------
14. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).
-----------------------
15. Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 p.m. with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) and scones when in season.
-----------------------
16. Re-runs of old so called comedy shows like Cheers and Everyone Loves Raymond will be replaced with shows more appropriate to the comedy genre, including Benny Hill, The Two Ronnies and The Paul Hogan Show

God Save the Queen! and Advance Australia Fair!

PS: share this with friends who have a good sense of humour (NOT humor)!
PPS:: I borrowed this added some things that were missing and Australianised it

The guy next door

The guy next door is a twat, no joke he is.
This is the same guy who accused our dog of jumping the fence and biting his goose ..yes he had a goose in his backyard course the dog didn't bite his goose if she did the goose would have been dead **doh* cattle dog ..nuff said.
Anyway he's the kind of guy who mows not up too and over onto your side of the boundary of the property but leaves a line of grass there right on the boundary as wide as the fence, the kind of guy who won't mow the bit next to the road because that's the councils job yet no one can walk on there because that's his property

Anyway I've just mowed OUR strip next to the road and the edge up to his property the piece 3 feet wide between the two driveways, ours is flat his is 3 feet high and now there are grass clippings all over his drive, whoops tiny bit on purpose there it's the blower vacc see I can't control where it blows things can I anyway that's my excuse if he complains ..too bad I say I could have mowed his tiny little bit between the two drives putting the mower blades right down so it shaved it right off (leaving our side looking nice) could have done that ..is the kind of thing he would do but I won't I'm not that mean
Knowing him he will sweep up the grass clippings put them in a dustpan and dump them back on our drive ... possibly .... he's the kind of guy who would, oh well I'll just blow them back again

About the hairy one

Just been sat at my other halfs desk, made him some filters for his Multiply inbox and sent off a PM from his ID because he didn't know the person so I had to PM them on his ID explaining that it was me on his ID he's a pain in the butt..typical male
Anyway I sit down at his desk and OMG couldn't hardly see anything his screen was feral, I've cleaned it for him now but sheesh boy clean your screen
Normally I don't sit at his desk, his chair is soggy and too low for me ..yes I typed soggy he sweats a bit another ewwww

His is the one with the towel on the chair, mines on the right
The keyboard is the same as mine we have matching ones yeah I know how cute but his is strange to type on because it's set lower than mine I put my hands down to type on it well think I am and miss it by half an inch

This is him, now you know what I mean when I say " the hairy one who isn't the dog"


this one here this one is the dog

You know what you can do with that election.....

I'm serious about this no kidding I don't give a rats any more how long can one country go on about a stupid election FFS, how long has it been now?
I don't know and I don't care, we have elections here we vote that's it done, gone and over with
We've had at least 3 and got a new Prime Minister already!

No kidding am I glad I don't live there yak, yak, tak all day long about the dang thing ... just Nike it will ya (Just Do it!), get out those touch screens out and push a dang button vote already.
I mean look how long do they get what 4 years? Well spending 3 of those years parading around yacking and kissing babies ain't getting any work done is it
Just shut up already and get it over with choice of what 3 how hard is that

You know how many candidates we have? On a paper mind you, kills a few trees for Aussie elections it does but you know how many we have ? Put it this way it's no A4 size paper its a bed sheet sized one and we get that voting over and done with in weeks not years and you have to turn up too, no mucking around here turn up get your bed sheet sized paper and your tiny stub of a pencil and tick boxes
If they went on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on about it here like they do over there those pieces of paper would get thrown in faces "stuff you mate I don't want to flippin know"

bored

think I was bored before wasn't I?
no idea , was I?
possibly

my back is hurting, mowed the lawn I KNOW shock horror amazement the lawn mower actually started wonders will never cease
Might possibly have started because it had a new spark plug and I mean a brand new one this time not an old 2nd hand one in a new looking box that "looked" like it was a brand new one
You know the [smarta$$] cousin he sticks this spark plug in it right when lawn mover was residing at FIL's and tells them its brand new one ...my backside it was and he charged them $5 for it he's such a rip off merchant
Anyway still got a bit of lawn to mow as its a PITB lawn mower one of those with a "deadmans switch" handle means you can't let go of it or it stops and you have to start the dang thing up again, so if you don't have a garden furniture mover handy and you are mowing by yourself, you have to mow around things ...so I mowed around things
kills my back though mowing does must be the vibrations from the mower I don't know as I can push it around ok don't know anyway I'm ok as long as I don't have to bend over and have you seen our fridge?
Our fridge is built for midgets its tiny only about 4 foot tall so getting milk out for my coffee is a bit of a pain
Think I might go to bed and warm my back on the furry one bit like having a furry hot water bottle that snores except he's not made of rubber and he don't make sloshing noises, well he does make noises but its more like a chain saw LoL

anyway cup is empty ..... did you drink that?
find some pain killers and go to bed, made the mistake last night of taking the pain killers before I logged out then of course I was sat here longer because my back wasn't hurting ..it started again when I got into bed, not exactly what I wanted so do it the right way around this time huh

its all in the guts

Connect IDE to disk drive making sure cable select is pinned correctly
insert ram horizontally, remove video card for easier insertion and replace
DOS dir a:
BIOS check for master status and boot device
drop screws on floor while trying to tighten up alignment of HDD
insert dummy ROM to cover up fact that rom slot cover is broken
trip over case cover from another computer three or four times


ok you want me to type in English right , not sure if I can had my head stuck inside the computers guts for most of the morning sounds disgusting that does
well it kind of is, was a bit of dust in there
Anyway computer is fixed now Frank the computer that is, he's all back and running again using the parts from another computer yet agian.
Someone broke his face though so it looks like he has two roms (burner and CD) doesn't actually ones a dummy not plugged in because the plastic plate "hole" cover wont stay on now very annoying because that one was painted to match
It should look the same as its partner .. is a silly thing I know but we have matching cases, keyboards and mice only Frank doesn't match now he's slightly "off"
Anyway won't explain what I had to do inside Franks guts if you didn't understand what I wrote first you'll have no idea what I did
No kidding though I wish those pin selectors would come off easier have to use tweezers to get them out and I've dropped one or two inside cases before, things are so tiny and slipperly as well they should have knobs on them so you can get them off easier with your fingers and don't get me going about case wires either change cases the wires for the lights never fit on the pins on the motherboard
The ram wouldn't go in because the Video card was in the way had to take that out to get the ram in and then out it back

Ok I'll shut up I'm talking "computer lingo" again, I've been in the guts I've fixed the guts up and now we have a computer without guts because its guts are in this one, well parts of them anyway
and no I did not put a sheep in the computer LoL that would be silly

Dana! you drink my coffee again??

I'll swear no kidding, Dana is still drinking my coffee
BRB

extra long straw that girl has
with all the suction of a Dyson vacuum

back .. ok who typed that bit ?? wasn't me well ok maybe it was LoL
Speaking of the coffee drinker with the long straw, there's a big difference between me and her you know she can sit there and write about things I can't you know, she can write about death and people in her life, how they lived what they were what they still are
I can't almost 3 months now and I've been shoving it back in it hurts you know , hurts too much I can feel it trying to get out and it hurts so I put this big fat band aid over the top of the leak, you know the one the one with the big yellow smiley face on it, I stick that on the leak.
Don't want pity don't want anyone to see me cry , I've been smoking too much, not sleeping well not exactly not sleeping not wanting to go to bed more like it, drinking more coffee than I should doesn't help the fact that the cup is always empty and there's never enough chocolate around here

I'm burying my head in the sand here, not wanting to come out, you know I've played every level of Zoo Tycoon (Dinosaur and Marine upgrade) and made so many themes since the end of May I've lost count, have to keep myself busy can't start thinking can't let it out I'm afraid it wont go back in if I do

TP, Wap and Washed Windows

what was I going to write ?? umm shoot forgot anyway I worked out the phone its got an icon thingy I click on that and it takes me to the WAP thingy I can then sign in to emails and stuff
but one problem the dang phone has auto complete I type (well mobile phone type) M which is fine then go to type an "i" but it does put an i? no it does not it puts Miierinda or something flip knows I know it took me 1/2 an hour to type my name out every time I pressed a letter 3 times it made words on me instead which I had to delete
Don't worry I didn't do that while I was in the WAP thing ..only used 95cents of my credit so far and wasn't using up a whole $20 typing my name , anyway have to work out how to turn off the auto complete on it, its a bloomin nuisance if I want to compose the word Missy its press 6 once, 4 three times, 7 eight times and 9 three times
I can TXT faster that way rather than it "thinking" what words I want I can do them myself faster
So still haven't been able to email from the phone .. could get stuff for it I spose maybe a Guns n Roses ring tone ? anything would be better than that stupid ones that are loaded on it rap cr*ap whoops did I type an a there I did didn't I oh well LoL

What the heck was the other thing? Ummm I washed windows today can see out now, don't think that was it though that's pretty boring apart from the fact that I had to do them with TP because I didn't have newspaper ..who buys newspapers nowadays? Anyway didn't have any and I'm looking at this terrible cheap TP and I thought well its paper isn't it ..shut up with the laughing( I know you are don't deny it) it worked thank you very much

Speaking of the TP this batch is terrible you heard the saying "thin as TP" well this fits it no kidding you have to use twice as much because its so thin, silly thing is right it's cheap BUT because we are using twice as much it's not saving a dang thing ..not getting that agian

on a go slow ..and how do you use this thing??

Having a hard time opening pages at the moment , our internet is on a go slow
used it all up I think and have to wait till the end of the month til it comes back fast again when is that next week I think
anyway bit slow at the moment and it ain't me

In other news I've got a new mobile phone ..its a metallic pink Motorola got a camera on it and it does other things as well ..hasn't rung yet then again this is me, my phone never rings the house phone does but my mobile doesn't
have to work out how to get pics from the mobile onto here ..or somewhere no idea how you upload the things onto a place like here no idea how to get them onto the comp either oh well
and no I don't have a book for it ..its new one for me but its a 2nd hand one about 2 years old
got given one before exactly the same had the charger but it didn't work was my nieces and her son had thrown it in the bath, this one that works which didn't have a charger or a book is from the nephews girlfriend ..confused yet ?
Two phones both exactly the same and I've ended up with one that works ..can even charge it up and it has flashing lights and makes noises kinda neat
Now all I want is a new battery for the "antique" Nokia brick love that one it doesn't do photos doesn't do Mp3's it's just cool and as big as my handbag won't loose that one in a hurry LoL

So how do you do things on one of these fancy phones never had one before and seeing as my pages are slow as a wet week may as well learn how to use the dang thing even if it never rings ..flip me if my phone rings I jump out of my skin wondering what the noise is
I'm serious about not knowing here btw ...tell me how do you do email and stuff like that on one of these phones???

and if you know my number it's the same ..same number just "new" phone is all

Mothers and sisters

Only got one mother and one sister (TG for that)
my sister my little big sister whos only 5' 3" but 12 years older than me is a nut job
My poor mother was going insane with her around , I mean look ok she cleaned up and dusted for mum who doesn't dust or vaccuum like ever , my dad used to do that and since he's been sick mums had a cleaner come in but the cleaner was organised via the nursing home so seeing as my dad is longer there no cleaner
Thing is right my sister cleaned the furniture and dusted alright but no kidding you should have seen the kitchen floor , think it was polenta from the "thing" she was making I dunno what it was some kind of flat bread with no taste at all anyway most of it was on the floor
Still trying to get my head around her new hubbie ok so he's Indian and a Muslim that doesn't worry me he's very quiet and has no idea what you are saying half the time but he's only 36 years old that's younger than me, she's old enough to be his mother
Poor little bugga didn't get his dinner till 8pm the other night even though he's Muslim you should have seen his eyes light up when mum offered to get pizza for dinner but my sister says "but I'm cooking" this was at 6pm only took her another 2 hours for the food to arrive Mum had cooked for herself by then
Oh my sister keeps hiding stuff on mum as well , ok not exactly hiding but putting stuff away in the wrong places I was chasing her around and putting them back were they should go
Yes mum does need organising and I could have stayed another week down there , see that's what I used to do for mum clean the fridge out tidy cupboards that kind of thing not move stuff or make more mess
See I lived with mum and dad for longer than she did I got married at 19 and that's when I moved out only moving up the road , my sister stayed in England when we moved to Australia she was 17-18 , came to OZ when she was 24 but didn't live long in mum and dads house
I've lived with them longer I KNOW where stuff goes , even though mum has moved house the "things" are still in the same places you don't move stuff or mum can't find it and if you make mess you clean it up or its still there next time.

I think my sister will be ending up a little shorter soon because mum is going to whop her on the head with the frying pan

RWC #14

Random Writing Challenge #14

The party had gone ok I suppose plenty of people there plenty of laughs always was at one of the fancy dress do’s that Susan threw, you knew it was going to be good before hand and they always where good

Fancy dress though and she always did this, she chose the costumes that way no one ever came in the same outfit

Had me dressed as a turtle one year, another year a big fluffy dice that one was great NOT couldn’t eat couldn’t drink couldn’t get my hands up to my face should have seen me oh boy head sticking out the top, hands sticking out the side and little skinny legs sticking out of the bottom was itchy as well that would have been the worst one except for this year

This year when she showed me what I’d be wearing I nearly fainted to the floor, you ever seen one of the pantomime horses, one person is the head and front legs the other person the back, well guess who was the arss end of a horse this year? Me of course

I’m telling you life isn’t far it really isn’t I mean who wants to spend an entire party with their head up someone else’s backside I certainly didn’t

But you know I did it anyway, got to spend the whole night with my hands on Susan’s backside which was a perk and every now and again someone would laugh hysterically at a hand snaking out from the horses body too grab some munchies off the table had no idea what I was grabbing of course, grabbed what I thought was a party sausage roll at one point in the night , yeah well it wasn’t have no idea what that was

Another one of Susan’s ideas that was the “bring some food” idea so we would end up with six dishes of tuna mornay and no dip but that was part of the fun

I did at the end of the night, actually early morning get to not be a horses arss anymore and say good night which was good, not good for everyone else those panto horse costumes make you sweat another good thing it did make the other guests clear off pretty quick, nothing worse than finding a sleeping person half in half out of a boose stained panda costume on the front stoop in the morning

So we got rid of them fairly quickly and Susan and myself sat in the swings in total silence and stared at the stars

“No horses arss next year ok Susan” I whispered not wanting to break the silence “I’m never, ever doing that again that was the worst costume ever

“What ever you say Farlap, what ever you say”

This time on Superball


About this Superball thing

Lets see it has advertisements which are obviously more interesting than the actual match, game what ever it is think its football ..na can't be football, ball is the wrong shape it should be more like an egg not pointy.
Looks more like the blokes are getting ready to rage war in some arena gladiator style I mean they have all that padding, helmets and shoulder pads ..hang on shoulder pads what the??
Ok then the game was obviously invented in the 1980's shoulder pads were very popular then

Can't be football I mean here football is played without padding because Aussie men are tough

Lets see the names of the teams we have teams like Adelaide crows see ADELAIDE you can tell what state they are from that way and the Canberra Raiders are from the city of CANBERRA , this superball thing I have no idea if its a national thing or just one state or might even be one town for all I know
I think its the end game the Final match so should be two teams playing no idea who they are though could be Wobbly Wombats could be Yelling Bears could be Loud Flushers

Yep yep I think I got it now the Squeezing Thinkers versus the Loud Flushers at the Superbowl yep yep ..no wait I don't think that is right do you?

About my Wordpress

My Wordpress
Which I just found by the way because someone commented on it, no idea who either but hey it wasn't spam so who cares even if it was slightly rude click here to see
Think I have a blog on there too ..gawd knows where though

See I have that Wordpress thing and I've just been on it and got lost AGAIN too confusing Wordpress is.
The theme is dark font on a dark background too and there is no way of changing it to a lighter colour font like you can on Blogger its CSS or nothing and I can't be bothered even finding where to change it never mind bothering doing CSS on it
Ok so Wordpress tell me how many "hits" I've got when, I can find that part and so? Who cares I don't care how many "hits" I get , the anti spam thing is neat though I will give it that.

Basically its so fancy smancy that its impossible and I can't be bothered with it
I want a blog that is readable that one isn't, I want a blog site that's easy to hit "post" that isn't
Don't care how many "hits" I get, I know what "pings" are but do I really care what they are?
No I don't

I blog for me not "hits" and and "pings" need to be able to read what I've typed and what others have typed
I can't do that on Wordpress I can't hardly even find my own blog

Oh and I'd post this on Wordpress too but Multiply doesn't cross post to it and finding the "post blog" link on Wordpress **rolls eyes** just been on it looked couldn't find it and can't remember where it is

Give me Blogger for "that" kind of blog its a darn site easier

We should know! .. Jan 23 '08

Australia

On the 26th of this month it’s Australia Day, most Australians think of it as just a day off a day for BBQ’s a holiday

They forget the history behind it they for get the history full stop, never mind about Australia’s national day

History isn’t taught in schools here only as an elective subject we don’t have a Mabo day we don’t think about the slavery the persecution of the “black fella” that went on, the poisoned blankets the murders the shootings, that the Aborigines sometimes fought back that they themselves have culture and songs and community

Culture that isn’t taught, history that isn’t taught

We are taught about the white settlers, we learn about Ned Kelly we see drovers and swagmen and tall ships , convicts and Chinese on the gold fields but the history the “black” history the dreamtime and the culture isn’t taught

There is no Black History month in Australia, our most famous most talked about is Kathy Freeman, you saw the Olympics you saw her.

We don’t have a MLK day, we don’t have marches we don’t have “months” in fact we hardly have anything at all.
