I've over-dosed on double cream over the festive period. And I don't care.

Is that an early bid for "Most Shaggable M/F 2017"?

Been chasing an adult rat around for 4 or 5 months, Smart S.O.A.R. Finally cornered him/she in a 8 ft tight spot with one way out.
Using a dozen glue boards as barriers he was finally caught.
Much respect to the SOB since he avoided dozens of glue traps, dozens of snap traps and dozens of poison bait stations these past few months.
He went out in full fury, much respect little rodent.

You know you've probably got the hang of living in Australia when you see a live eastern brown snake in the wild and, rather than freaking out, take the opportunity to discuss snake identification with the children.

I only found out last night (by complete accident as well) that Rick Parfitt died on Christmas Eve. How the hell did that one pass me by?

Also, holy shit

No, I never bother with those. Usually I'll hear about most of them on arsebook or whatever.

I agreed to be a product tester for a new brand of soap. Can't tell you the brand because I had to promise I wouldn't blab about it. Was supposed to get 4 cakes of soap. Got 48 cakes of soap. I don't want to be a product tester anymore.
