Well, it had to be done, didn't it? And since this is both the first and last post, I have won. Thank you all.
You leave my morals out of this young lady, I need them to mix in wiv the roasted chestnuts and mulled wine wot we are avin. An' yer can't scare me wiv yer pointy stick. I've got me chain mail shirt on wot me grandad wore in 1066 at Hastings. There's a couple of 'ols wot your soup put in it last time but apart from that it's a great pointy stick stopper.
Drunk. What can I say? Call Gesine when you can't find your legs and she will come and pick you both up. Don't throw up in her car, though.
Oh no, get a taxi, just point to the label hanging around your neck and the driver knows where to go. Don't forget paying him...
He kept losing the label, Gesine, so he had the address tattooed on his belly.
You's bin peekin again girl. How many times have you bin arrested for that now ?
Anyways, 'snot my address, prizey put it on there wiv a biro and it's takin ages in the baff to get it orf. I might put some water in it next time.
Hmm - let me see...
"5 parts gin, 1 part vermouth, 1 green olive and ice"
You're right. That doesn't sound like your address. Have you been teaching the prize to cook? And it's just as well there was no water in the barf. You didn't take off your clothes.
Eeee, that don't sound 3 bad. I'll av'e bucket o that please m'dear. Hic.
Skål, I take a beer on doomsday theories
Coca Cola is the strongest thing I drink - and the caffeine in it makes me jumpy. We winners can afford to drink whateve we darn please, doomsday or not. Did anybody's world end yesterday? My work ended for about ten days, but I'd hardly call that apocalyptic. And I'm on call, anyway, so no rest for the wicked.
Saw a strange message on facebook saying
'Did you actually expect me to allow the world to end just before my birthday ?'
Can't remember who's page it was now.
LOL - It must have been Mithra or Neptune or one of the other pagan gods, because they all had their birthdays on December 25.
Merry Christmas, Phil! Don't get arrested like you do every year.
Yep,'append again. You always get one who objects to you climbing down their chimney and putting presents in their stockings. Not my fault she was still wearing them. You'd think I'd get away wiv it seeing we've been married for 40 years !
Hey you got the 1 prize for beeing married so long
But not THIS prize, so wipe that smirk off your face young 'arry! I hope you all had a nice time. I've just driven back. My graddaughters decided they wanted me to stay longer and take them to church (their mother is Catholic, but I take them to the Seventh-day Adventist church) on Saturday. They love going to Sabbath school - like Sunday school. And it has been a sort of tradition with us when I'm in Brisbane. I'm not really a practising Adventist, but I do believe what they teach. So I felt morally obliged and emotionally blackmailed to spend even more money staying there, but I'm so glad I did. I took them swimming in the motel pools three times (the weather was scorching) and to a few parks, shopping, played endless games and wore out their new Christmas teaset - which they loved - and their new hula hoops - courtesy of their Dad and his partner. I'm worn out. They still had some puff left in them, so I was glad to hand them over to Dad and partner for the next few days. Then they go back to their Mum's for a week, then back to Dad, and so on for the seven weeks of their school holidays. They start grade three at the end of January. I adore them!
But I still win this game. :o)
Great, you had a big time in Brisbane. It is unusual for me to hear the kids have summer holidays now. Hihi!
And the game is not over yet...
LOL! It'a only about 2 hours to midnight here. Very quiet, but I'm sure someone will set off fireworks and scare the animals soon.
Yes, it's the middle of a heatwave, too. I have the airconditioner going full blast. That is why I absolutely have to win the prize munny. I have to pay the power bill!
Happy new year my little gremlins. I'm now job hunting so haven't got time to take prize out anywhere. That means the young lady of Oz can pay her bill and put her feet up :0)
Good luck, Phil. I hope the new year brings you a great new job. And how do you expect me to put my feet up? I'd fall over!
Phil hope you'll be successful soon.
And Dez are you allright or are you melting away by the temperatures you have in Australia?
I think it is too hot for the prize in Oz. I take it to Hamburg. It's barely cold but we heaten the oven
I am melting - although it has been only around 35C here at its hottest, so we have been okay. And no fires nearby.
Where have you been, young woman? Holidaying and having fun while I have had to keep in control of this unruly prize? Take it. Smack it when it's naughty. And send it to bed without supper.
Unfortunatly no holidays. Working, working, working... New staff who needs a lot of instruction, normal stand bys with no sleep at night and a lot of changes at the websites I care for.
And my hospital want me to be ACLS (advanced cardiac life support)Trainer. I get a thick book I have to study before the practical course starts and must make some test to show I understand waht they wrote there.
Livesaving algorithm, medicaments, team leading in emergancy cases...
But it gets better day by day.
And Prizey isn't able to behave hisself?
He can build snowman here and make snowball fights with the children around here. So he'll get tired and go to bed alone.
If I could I would take about 10° of your outside temperatures because wetter.com says no degrees above freezing point the next two weeks.
You're clever, aren't you? I envy people who are full of practical skills. And important ones, too.
You are welcome to the heat. 10 degrees less would make it perfect here!
I have a lot of experience. Would be silly if not after all those years.
And I like to learn new things.
I have been away. I am back. I must be the winner.
Yes, experience is everything. Training is necessary, but separated from hands on experience, it means very little.
