You just changed your pronunciation to line up with mine, Fui! Which one is it?
Haha I stuffed up the breakdown, it’s more Mah than Mar..
What?? Mah IS Mar... learn your phonetics!!
Then what are you on about?! I’ve said both and they’re the same?

Good grief lad

Heading into the office tomorrow. Normally work from home on Fridays, but going in for an expo that’s being put on at work.

Heading to BankWest Stadium on Saturday to catch the Parra/Warriors game

I've got tomorrow off too PJ! Shame you're not in Canberra. I think I'd like to have a pub lunch and a beer with you at the Kingo one day! You can grill your own steaks.

I really have a pet peeve with those places like that and Stonegrill. It’s one thing to charge me to cook my own food, but to be more expensive than if their own chefs cook it?

Nope, that’ll do me. Same with places that serve food deconstructed. I ordered a quesadilla once, came with 4 plates. One for the bread, one for the meat, and 2 for the salads. Hated it.

I’m working down at Perisher at the moment, drove down early yesterday so I could get some training in, nice ride up to Crackenback and a run around the lake. Hopefully I can get the team fired up this morning and finish by lunch, then some extra training before heading down to Canberra for a family gig this weekend.

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.

Well..

My day off didn't turn out so relaxing after all. Suzy won't start in P. This isnt happening everytime I start her but it needs fixing. This has been going on for a few weeks now. I had Suzy serviced just recently and my mechanic said it wasn't critical and wouldn't cause any damage but I should get it fixed before next rego(Feb).

So she needs a new neutral safety switch.I knew that..thanks google.I went down to a auto transmission place this morning and saw the boss. He quoted me a new part and Suzys booked in. On top of other errands I've been busy.

Suzy got new rubber the other day..4 X $158.

You know what they say..if its got boobs or tyres ya gunna have dramas.

just home after taking Boju out for haircut day, the rise of the modern barber is something to behold.
I've long been a barber guy, sit talk footy get a good haircut and shave but now it's less chat more service, Walk out feeling super fresh. I don't give them much to work with but I'm still in the chair a solid 20mins of razor and clipper work.

Got a haircut in Barcelona a bit back. 2 blade on the sides and back, two beers and Argentina v Australia on TV. With about 5 words of common language, rugbyhead barber and I ended up pushing through at the Irish bar next door till 2am.

Damn fine haircut
