even got a win up over the mother inlaw, she hates sport.
She decided at the 30min mark that boney jr and I shouldn't be sitting in the media room watching the footy so had a meltdown that the TV had to go off and that no sport gets watched in her house, I calmly grabbed the car keys and my phone to go watch in the car kids started following me she burst into tears took off for the bedroom, father inlaw called her an idiot and the footy stayed on.
She apologised, sort of, about 2hrs later but the kids and I turned in early avoiding the frosty atmosphere.

Hahaha what the hell, Boney? There’s not a person that knows me that would ever try to get between me (and Erin!) and a Raiders game

I reckon Mrs.bonehead should get involved too, but probably trying to find out what’s going on for her.

Unless that’s completely normal for her, sounds like crying out for attention?

God, you accidentally go to the toilet in someone’s washing machine and they never let you forget it, do they?

I imagine walking in, finding you on top of and squatting over the top loader is a mental image that is difficult to shake.

Yeah same. I prefer Mrs Fui’s family than most of my own.

I’m sure most people would be quicker to forgive if it only happened the one time...

Once is a mistake.

Twice is a coincidence.

Three times is a clear pattern of behaviour.

mental note, gh seems to frown on top load download.

Up until the last year or 2 I've got on famously with the dragonlady but I dunno what's going on with her mental health. Father inlaw I would count in my closest circle of mates, best inlaw you could ask for, fantastic grandparent to my kids.

Spent yesterday in bed with a migraine.
Today walked 2kms from home to a local vineyard and indulged, bad Boney.
Early night ahead I think

Botman just made me realise December will be a mini-milestone for me. It will mark me living in Sydney as long as I lived in Bega.

Kind of trippy, kind of making me feel old. I still remember Day 1 of moving into this share house with nothing but a garbage bag full of clothes and my video collection, no job and only knowing one person. Three months later I discover that share house was actually a halfway house for released cons, and I felt it was time to go.

To think I've gone from there to owning my own place, finding Mrs Fui, and working in the area I am, it's been a bit of an adventure

Life certainly flies by Fui.

Live it..enjoy it.

With the footy season over this thread will ramp up I reckon.

I've got a summer of pure, unfiltered dribble to spill.

Hey Boney..

You left a couple of coldies in my fridge. I'll tidy them up for ya. And in return I'll compensate you next time we catch up.

Stout’s done. This is easily the best I’ve made. I added different Hops and Grains to this one, and you can tell. This is the first beer I’ve done that has a bit of a profile.

Ready for the Fui original recipes now

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.
