Firstly, I’d like to apologise for how crap this blog has become. I wouldn’t normally care but I’ve recently read some old posts and, well, geez I’ve written some seriously dull shit lately. I promise to try to maybe make some kind of attempt to do better or something.

Secondly, I know you’re all gagging for an update on my life and times given the simply fascinating life I have been leading lately and so, without further ado, here’s a brief update.

  • my neighbours are having a party tonight so I will be spending the night curled up on the couch crying at their awful music/conversation/selves/anything else I can think of and stabbing myself every single time I hear ‘like’
  • erm
  • oh yes, sister & nephew have been and gone - I believe that we did buy almost the entire show and I am still digging bits of building toys out from in/around/under my furniture
  • the early mornings really sucked
  • children get harder to manipulate and fool as they get older [little shits]
  • siblings get easier to manipulate and fool as they get older [I’m LYING]
  • my sister is someone whose company I can only cope with in small doses
  • likewise my nephew
  • my mother was here last week has gone away this week and will be back next week
  • tomorrow I am getting [blessedly] drunk with someone I’m not related to
  • I’m bored with this now

Thirdly, who the hell is actually reading this blog? My stat counter is weirding me out as the numbers climb faster than I can account for and since I can’t access my stats properly I’m just dying to know who you [yes you] are. Therefore, lurkers, please stop lurking – come on out and say hi.

Fourthly, honestly, next post will be something reasonable. I have some ideas [yeah yeah pick yourself up off the floor].

P.S. My arms hurt.

I read through bloglines, so I may not be in your stats, but I do read. And tghe bloglines bonus is that I don't notice if you don't update for a while ...

And, so, yeah. I like it.

Aren't family wonderful?! Mine are about 10000 miles away and I love them dearly but somehow they occascionally manage to irritate me even from that distance.

For the last 10 days my mum has been emailing, Messenging, sms'ing, even calling me, to tell me to write my sister an email because 'she misses you' (yeah, right!). I done it last night and sent a victory email.

Her immediate response was : 'Don't you think you should email your cousin too while you've got time?'

Here's to a dramatic increase in quality! Don't take me the wrong way, but I've never known you to write about... well, anything really. I'd be interested to know what kind of topics you pick.

Herm. Can you really measure lurkers if they don't have much opportunity to comment?

TimT said...

You should have a delurking post. Then people can come out and say things like 'I lurk and I vote!' or maybe list their qualifications in lurking/stalking. It could be like a reality TV competition, we could figure out who is The Biggest Lurker! Maybe give them a celebrities address as a prize, what does everyone say?

Hello Chesty, love it when the people I [mostly] lurk on lurk on me. [Did that sound borderline revolting or what?]

Attention all, this is the kind of commentator I'm talking about. Aside from the last post [how very ANZAC] who among us knows John? Hmmm? Thought so.
John: Family are indeed a trial though to be frank [hey, it's my blog I'll be who I damn well please] your mum is a wee bit scary there. I've never been prompted to email a cousin but that might be because my mother considers all of mine to be a waste of space.

Mark: I write about stuff. Gosh, what is it with you? Always nag, nag, write a proper blog, nag...

Phishez: Hey, I wouldn't even be interested if my stat counter would give me some decent stats and/or I'd bothered to find a new one. My recent posts have been too boring, haven't they? It's okay. Ever since I read the best blogs of whenthehellever I've kind of just written [even more] shit. Damn good bloggers/writers.

Tim, I was only interested in lurkers [sorry you don't qualify], where do the stalkers come in [and do you qualify]?

alexis said...

Me, I semi-lurk, and I've been voting since 1996.

Meredith said...

Hi, I'm here sporadically & unchronologically.

Boo said...


I blog therefore I lurk....!

TimT said...

That would make you a blurker!

nailpolishblues said...

Blurking is something I occasionally do after imbibing a few too many shandies.

themarina said...

I don't think I'm a lurker but just in case.... HI!

Pomgirl said...


Me lurk too.

Mark said...

Oh man, I haven't had a shandy since I was seventeen and went to neighbours' for Christmas dinner. I'm gonna go and order one next time I'm at the pub.

I'm here. Keep writing. I'm reading.
