Previously I have received:

- A sweet graphic novel

- A USB full of music

- Some awesome cards

- Some postcards from middle of nowhere USA

- A lot of smiles and laughs

 

The idea is to keep it small, significant, personal and managable.

Why are they paired off? I thought usual SS was just the pick names from a hat method? Anyhow count me in. And apologies in advance to whoever gets stuck with my junk ;)

well - it's hard to pas around an e-hat. I can pair people off randomly pretty easily (ie, use a hat at home), but it's not as if we can meet and do it, and it also needs to be relatively private for the surprise.

 

hanks for the question and thanks for being interested!

doesn't XL do a random number generator thingo??

Stupidly I let one of my sisters do the kris kringle xmas list for the relos this year and she didn't do it properly - she mucked around with it - instead of just advancing one column on and a small tweak here and there - and now I've got one of my brothers - AND hes got me - arrrrgh - its not supposed to be like that - stupid - I've got them all - except those O/S - descending on my place for the brunch /lunch/dinner /party.

Just had a call, from the in laws on the other side, who couldn't organise a f* in a brothel with a gift card, have finally at last sort of spoken to each other and organised that xmas 200ks up country the bloody day before!! (In a park - "What time" said I - "Oh thats a good question " says dopey B-i-L) and the street party here is the day after my family do - talk about squashed.

In other exciting news from the suburban dad front - I've just got rid of Telstra in the last month.
Gone TPG - all you can eat ADSL 2+ and Phone - free unlimited calls to Oz , m. & pot, and 8 other countries, m. & pot, including ones I want to ring - Taiwan and UK. $89 pcm. All working well. $50 at least a month cheaper than before.

Thank you! As TBM said, they're calf. The fit of the Inca is slightly wider in the forefoot than the Rain but similar otherwise. They suit my feet very well.

Are there such things as tasteful runners? 

 

I need to get a new pair and am wondering if they come in something besides 90s monstrosity.

Us men are all familiar with it. The desire to be cool. To have the perfect body . Well at least abs. And be admired. ( Luckily for me it all came easy)
But not every Body is perfect.
Some of us wear orthotics in our shoes.
Ironically we are probably the ones whose shoes fit the best. (not looking at anyone in particular here - quiet down the back)

One of my heros.
Well hes not really a hero but I do admire him.
James Newell Osterberg, Jr.
He's cool. Like Angus and Bon.
He still puts out good music.
Hes unique and famous but astonishingly available, unpretentious and ordinary.
Not only is he cool and one of the real rock gods but hes also a very bright fellow who has had an article published in an established journal of classical scholarship, Classics Ireland, on his reflections on the applicability of Edward Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire to the modern world in a short article, Caesar Lives, (Vol. 2, 1995).
I recommend you listen, properly, no MP3s, up loud on a good system, good speakers, to all his music . And read Danny Sugarman's books to get some insight beyond shallow media nonsense..

Perfect body? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Iggy has his right leg 1.5 inches shorter than his left, Iggy has incorporated a stacked heel to his right foot to give him equal balance.

'I have one leg about an inch and a half shorter than the other. When I was thirteen, I was run over by a big guy playing junior high football, and the right leg ended up a quarter-inch shorter. By my midtwenties, it was a half-inch. 'Then in the Eighties, I had no money and was taking packed economy flights everywhere, night after night. The combination of that schedule and a fall I took dancing on an amplifier left me with my spine twisted and a slight limp.

Melbourne - summertime and the livin' is easy.

The other day it was 30C+ and I busted out the linen and the night was too hot to sleep.
Today 17C and rain /drizzle all day. Pinkie must feel right at home in summer.
Tomorrow hail and 16C.
