Maybe she did do more than nothing...She managed to pull a few celebrities to her cause, good for her! Did you postal vote James?

oh lol! AMAL just put into more eloquent words about my theory of the prehistoric modern woman I mentioned a few months ago. What is true about it? Everything.

Howard is a dick and Costello is a coward.

Yes, he can do budgets, but that doesn't make him fit for Prime Minister.

I don't see anything worth worshiping in Costello. When Hawke broke his promise to give Keating the Prime Ministership, Keating kicked his ass and booted him out.

Costello just moans.

He is simply not a leader and is completely unfit to represent the country's highest office.

I think his decision is leave politics is very wise. I respect him for that. I think he'll do much better in the business world. All this just makes Howard even bigger of a selfish, manipulative jerk.

Hey slight change of time for Annie's Bungalow 8 pre-Christmas dinner on Dec 8: Now 6pm. Post up on the wiki if you're going, and she'll check it for the RSVP

Something I received from a work colleague.

I thought I wrote this post...but anyway,

Sincerest sympathies to Costello: though as successful as he may have been as Treasurer, it was quite tragic that he never enjoyed the throne after being lured by Howard only to turn around and be told, "PSYCHE!!1!!1!2"

And now Howard's handing over leadership like kid with a once awesome toy whose gone ahead and broken it then passing it on as a hand-me-down to which Costello is now thanks...(faggot). He kept his head down (unlike the rest of the party) and got results but, unfortunately, no ultimate satisfaction. Even though I backed Labor, I still respect and understand why John so loves Liberal, because of his idol Costello :p

As for most part of the party, I think they are fags. Turn to p6 of today's Herald and you'll see yet another reason why the Bennelong Chinese community turned against the Liberals/Howard. But I think its mainly because the older Chinese community (including my parents) are not ready to forgive the liberals for "mild" racial transgressions from the past few decades. It probably is time to let go of that because we live in different times (compared to the Fraser/Hawke period that they went thru) and people and attitudes change, but I'm still iffy knowing there are nigger guys (or more appropriately, Chigger guy) like them in there. Also cf electorate of Lindsay...

They have gigantic boots to fill...

Australian version of top gear

That was pretty close so I guess the fail wasn't that epic on the face of it, but its the PM of the country tho...

Heres the figures for Bennelong. A +16.6% swing for McKew.. By first preferences, Howard still loses out by around 250 votes.

Bennelong ::

John Howard rolls 1d20 = 0 : Epic Fail

Even I could have done what KcKew did, that is, stood in place for Labor, done nothing and Howard would have lost. This is truly epic fail.

Looks like its Kevin07 and beyond

Hey guys, I'm going to this Engineers Australia talk this coming Thursday Nov 29 at 6pm in the city. Let me know if you want to come. It's free and there's a light meal included, which is unusual.

I was excited! I was gonna be insulted by the best chef in the world... - Random restaurant owner

Darren - you must clarify for Spain.

You must wear a mask in addition to your other attire. Not just the mask Spain

Whoever wears the Optimus Prime voice changing mask wins ...

How classy!

A note about Annie's Xmas Dinner: its a Masquerade party.. so you are meant to wear a mask of some sort.. Probably less like that mask..

Hey lads, lasses

Everyone keen for a pre-xmas dinner that Annie's organising on Sat Dec 8, at Bungalow 8 (King St Wharf) at 7pm?

If you want the facebook details it's here

RSVP by November 27. I'm in. Fungus and choogs are coming too, if you haven't caught up with them in a while.

It's an orsome way to find out whether they are willing to commit. Although it could mean they tried and failed

I find it rather peculiar that someone would ask you if you are married (at 23) before they ask whether you have a girlfriend or not.

Good tip: make the effort to wake up at 8am to vote early or you get boned on the line ride at noon.

Wednesday, November 21, 2007

I got asked today if I was married. Ironic, since I've never been asked before, and that it happened two days after all shit has pretty much hit the fan with Lisa.

Also, I got asked today at work if I was Jacky Chan. I said no, and took him to the real Jacky Chan, who works 10m away from me. Yes his name is Jacky Chan, yes it's spelt different to the actor, Jackie Chan.

Further, I just watched Gabriel at Hoyts Broadway last night, with some work colleagues. The star of Gabriel, Andy Whitfield, works for Arup, and also sits 10m away from me. In the movie, he looks...just like he does in real life. Actually, he's more handsome in person. He, on the other hand, is actually married.

DAY OF CAKEAGE - Dec 01 2007

Okay kids, here's the details you've all been waiting for.

Location; My place (Gemoore st Smithfield)

If you're driving and coming from the the m4/Parramatta Road westbound turn left onto Cumberland Hwy, right onto the Horseley Drive, left onto Gipps st, right (last right) into Gemoore and follow it to near the dead end.

If you're coming westbound from the Hume Hwy, just turn right onto the Horseley drive and follow the directions above from there.

If you go by train, just catch the train to Fairfield station and I can arrange a convoy from there (4 max at a time).

Okay, now that that crap's outta the way...

The Fun shit!

As Hash said before, theres a pool here so there will be much partaking in the swimming occurring. There is also a school behind my place with a full sized Soccer field (Goals included...Last time I checked), Monkey Bars (Yey) and half Basketball court with ring (If someone hasn't stolen it again..)
There's also cakeage, PS2, Gamecube, DVDs, BYO Game System if you want. If anyone can network some sorta LAN then thats welcome too.


There'll be a BBQ running with a wide selection of farm animals for your partaking, also I'll be on the deepfryer frying up some chicken (Also Karaage if I learn how to by then), there'll be lots of random snacks, etc etc.. you get the point, there'll be food.

In Closing

A good starting time for me will be probably after 2pm, maybe 3.. or 4.. Depending on when I wake up and it'll go into the night for god knows how long.

Sound good? Email me an RSVP or SMS or whatever, surprise me :)

Toe is fractured along 2 points on the distal phalanx.
eta till reversion from sphere to toe - 1 week
eta till walking normally - 6 weeks
eta till full recovery - 8 to 12 weeks

also, fracture goes all the way to joint so there is a possibility of arthiritis in the future.

road accidents

lol notice how the top 2 are at toll escaping intersections.
guess it wasn't worth escaping the $3 toll for the victims ><

man, what the hell did you guys do at soccer? i'm thinking it was a good thing i didn't turn up.
its a pretty tough break, hash, but it could have been worse. if you fractured your hands, you would have to quit your job in full-time magic XD

Soccer is off while we mourn the fall of a great Hero by tall gangly stranger.

Surfer dude stuns physicists with Theory of Everything, and a link to his paper. Take THAT, String Theory..

Also, I won't be able to make Saturday soccer. One exam next week, and I calculated I need every hour I can get to study for it. Afterwards though, it should be alright.

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

I am a clean true hearted soul XD

Hash doesn't do sexual innuendo.

Monday, November 12, 2007

I was so sure that was Hash's post but then I saw 'butters'.

Oh boy...

Some people are easily entertained. Especially by feminine plastic objects XD

Sunday, November 11, 2007

My god, toys really have come a long way since our time. I've recently bought an "Ultimate Bumblebee" transformer toy and the fact that it can sense how fast your are moving it, ie pushing it around the floor, and make the corresponding engine noise and tyre screening noise is unbelievable. Though the thing looks nothing like the movie, it's still a cool piece of toy. In comparison to my old transformers toys being a block of plastic that transforms and do nothing else and my gundams that sit there on
my shelf looking pretty and collecting dust, this bumblebee is cool!

And seriously, when the box says it's for age 5+, it means it's for parents with children that are 5+. It took me and Hai almost 20 minutes each to transform the thing at first.

Your kind of 'rational' thinking causes an uprising of the lower and middle classes, widespread riots, looting and nationwide civil unrest.

Saturday, November 10, 2007

right. I can see you've provided thorough and thoughtful reasoning.

A thought just hit me -- the progressive tax system is absolutely ludicrous. Even the 'flat tax' system isn't truly 'just'. The only rational income tax system is a regressive one.

I noticed that too, but I chose to blame you nevertheless.

As Hash cleverly noticed that the whole text was in courier font - an indication that it did not come from me, but someone else.

Lol, Chess boxing!
Hammer the opponents head as much as possible so you don't lose the chess round XD

The first Chess-Boxing Light-Heavyweight World Championship Fight..

I wont be able to make poker tonight, I've still got an assignment to finish off. But knowing my luck, I'd be out in the first 3 rounds and just sitting around anyway..

Thursday, November 08, 2007

lol James, ever the vigilante. Tho, i suspect that that whole thing was copied so it would be incorrect to assign blame towards grammar.

Event: Benny's House for Poker
When: Friday, meeting around 7-8ish
Plans: Meet at Benny's grab dinner, then poker starts 9ish


Those are similes, not metaphors, sydney grammar boy.

These are all metaphors in Yr 12 essays! Frightening to think that one
of these people could one day be running the country...

1. Metaphors Found in NSW Year 12 English essays:-

2. Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two sides
gently compressed by a Thigh Master.

3. He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a
guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of
those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country
speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse
without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it.

4. She grew on him like she was a colony of E. coli and he was
room-temperature prime English beef.

5. She had a deep, throaty, genuine laugh, like that sound a dog makes
just before it throws up.

6. Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.

7. He was as tall as a six-foot-three-inch tree.

8. The revelation that his marriage of 30 years had disintegrated
because of his wife's infidelity came as a rude shock, like a surcharge
at a formerly surcharge-free ATM.

9. The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a
bowling ball wouldn't.

10. McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like a Hefty bag
filled with vegetable soup.

11. From the attic came an unearthly howl. The whole scene had an eerie,
surreal quality, like when you're on vacation in another city and "Sex
in the City" comes on at 7:00 p.m. instead of 7:30.

12. Her hair glistened in the rain like a nose hair after a sneeze.

13. The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots when you
fry them in hot oil.

14. John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had
also never met.

15. Even in his last years, Grandad had a mind like a steel trap, only
one that had been left out so long, it had rusted shut.

16. The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law Phil. But unlike Phil,
this plan just might work.

17. The young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you get from not
eating for a while.

18. "Oh, Jason, take me!"; she panted, her breasts heaving like a Uni
student on $1-a-beer night.

19. He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck, either,
but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land
mine or something

20. The ballerina rose gracefully en pointe and extended one slender leg
behind her, like a dog at a fire hydrant.

21. He was deeply in love. When she spoke, he thought he heard bells, as
if she were a garbage truck backing up.

22. She was as easy as the TV Guide crossword.

23. She walked into my office like a centipede with 98 missing legs.

24. It hurt the way your tongue hurts after you accidentally staple it
to the wall.

Hey ppls,

Anyone interested in Poker this Friday night? Haven't played for a while...

Stoopid daylight savings. Made me go to work at 9 today.


AHAHAHAHA. Yes, Alexis speaks like that. I can imagine him now...with his pimped up clothes, his cane, and his low-rider of an Impala.

I saw 4 dude off the road on Sat after Jono's get together. From the looks of things, the p platers just understeered into someone's backyard...(3 out of 4 of the ppl who slid off roads that night, were p platers.)

BTW, enjoy Melbourne Cup ppls, hope you guys win some.

Monday, November 05, 2007

Alexis says (8:59 PM):
nigga pleasssssseeeeeee
Marc says (8:59 PM):
i dont want anymore viruses please
Alexis says (9:00 PM):
Fo'shizzle ma nizzle. Look at my awesome pic's yo -

Sunday, November 04, 2007

Thanks for hosting Jono. Thnx to Marc and Jono for the Milkshakes. Thnx John and Linda for cleaning up our mess XD.

Drive home was nuts! Epping Rd was esp. funny as we saw some really badddddd drivers. One guy was driving on 2 lanes for about 5 mins straight before he changed to one lane. Another guy was swerving in and out of traffic at high speeds while approaching a red light. Once again, AWD system ftw.

Good to hear you all got home safely. Thanks again for the night in yesterday! And for a nice walk around the park. Thanks Linda and John for doing the dishes!

Indeed. On my way to Jono's, I experienced a brief moment of oversteer as I turned right into Falcon Street. I thought I can delay a change of rear tyres. Guess not. On the way home, from Pacific Highway to Epping Road to Lane Cove Road, was even more...exciting. I couldn't see the road! Let alone the lines...

PS: Bloody hell, look at the fine weather! Not a cloud in the sky (from Lidcombe)

Driving back was insane and fun. It was pissing down and I took River Rd/Penrose Rd back home which is my favourite road around here.

Saturday, November 03, 2007

In case people are unsure, tonight at mine IS going ahead, due to the 8 people on the wiki signing up. :-)


Friday, November 02, 2007

Ok, I'm down. Haven't actually spent time with any friends since Yi's BBQ zzz

Did people want to do so something indoors tomorrow? Charlie suggested DVDs

I'm happy to volunteer my place, say 5pm? We can grab dinner and watch some flicks

Who's keen?

Thursday, November 01, 2007

haha KJ, you don't owe me anything.

I also have a new soccer ball, and it I am down for saturday soccer if people are.
