Hot- the yummy mummy I saw with the kids at the park a few days ago. The little tyke had mummy's mobile in his hand and was cutely toddling along the path. He runs ahead, stops, turns and slams the phone on the ground with all the strength he could muster! The phone disintergrated, mummy's face disintergrated, and I pissed myself!! Gold, and it was a sunny arvo- good times!
Not- Anyone hear the 'outrage' at the cyclist killed by a truck on Kings way a few days ago...? I thought not...

p11 Herald Sun, in about a 50word article tucked away in the corner while some crappy footy coach sacking graces the front page..I hear ya brutha..

AJ said...

one of my good mates was running errands in the city on wed and saw the Kings Way death aftermath. Won't describe grizzly details, "extensive head injuries" from the article said it all. Be careful out there fellas.

Hey thanks Joel, when we going DH shuttling dude (i'll bring the 575)??

And Gunsle the choppers are here to stay..someones gotta keep the tradition on when Kabush retires...! AJ- Flying the flag at Mont with the Yeti crew which is always a hoot...first stop on the travelling circus tour 2006/07..cheers, cw

I hate hunger flatting!! Its the worst thing eva, worse than dry s3x, seriously, if u have eva badly hunger flatted u will agree with me.

Im so paranoid about hunger flatting that i constantly carry at least $10 on me on top of all the food i take on all rides/races.

I've flatted on the elbow with still the ride back to chirny to go...now that sucks the big one! Lets just say that hunger flatting = freewheeling @ every op.

:)

Great blog winny
