    Ricky Gervais

    Mmmmm Some of it was. And I had a few laughs. Some of it was just offensive and Ricky taking things too far (again). I think on the whole Ricky is a likeable very funny guy But he certainly has a cruel streak in him, which I find unfunny. Especially last year that awful joke about Caitlyn Jenner where a lady had died. Extremely offensive to her family I am sure. Surprised nobody had tried clobbering him or suing him yet.
  2. Good point. However, he could have been a bit more subtle about it, as he sounds a bit patronising and lacking empathy Although yes in principle I agree with him. I was unemployed for a year and struggled to pay the rent, pay the bills, feed myself and my cat. No way would I have brought a kid or three into the mix. Whereas a lot of people already long term unemployed or on benefits are just having kids all over the place. The other thing is lack of knowledge for cooking and making cheap nutritious meals. For less than the price of a Maccas Happy meal, you can make a healthy nutritious meal that will last for a few days. So when they say they cannot afford to feed their kids, what are they actually feeding them on. Whilst I agree with what he is saying, I think he could have said it better, as if I was in their shoes I would have felt upset and offended by his lack of manners on a deeply personal issue.

    Yes. That is what my boyfriend said too! Lucky for his partner I am nearly 4000kms away, so I can only lust from afar Ah well.

    How is Megan doing so far?

    . I certainly don't. Arthur is part of the problem. The media (especially the Daily Fail Mail with their free-for-all comments from demented readers) has had a nasty agenda against her from the start. Quotes I have seen were : Too common (out of Compton), not white enough, too American. They wanted an English rose with a title for Harry and turned on Meghan as a result. And most of her estranged family have been awful money grabbers for attention. Just imagine your half brother who you have not seen for ten years, wrote a letter to the gutter press that your fiancee not marry you, then turn around and beg for a wedding invite. She gave up her job, her career, her home, her religion, closeness to her mum and friends, all her roots, everything, to move to a new country that was hostile to her from the start, then had a baby soon afterwards which can be hugely life changing, I actually consider she has held it together fairly well all things considered.

    Things you just don't get.

    Yes. I had just finished watching the movie when I signed up for PIO. Lack of imagination made me use the name. But I can safely assure Tonyman that (well at least last time I looked) I am a red blooded 100% female all over.

    Why do goodbyes never get easier?

    I would not expect them to. I never said that. I said would they consider it as an option.

    Bushfire season

    ? You miss my point I am in Sydney. And had friends and relations in the UK ringing, and emailing, in panic as they think the city has burnt to the ground. Some of the media in the UK (particularly the Daily Fail Mail) has been reporting the most exaggerated stuff and putting Armageddon fear of God into people. When in reality, for most cities, life is continuing as normal apart from some smoke. Brisbane city centre is not on fire. Just saying to keep things in perspective Hope you understand the meaning of my comment now

    ? Then I stand by my first comment that Tony is possibly "retentive" But I don't care, since I fancy him now (from his hot pool photo) - all is forgiven

    Well Tony that cheeky photo of you (extremely handsome BTW) turns me on But my dog is a lot more discerning Either way, wet slobber coming your way........................

    Bushfire season

    Well please remember that the media exists to make money - most of that by fear mongering Yes things are horrific and far worse than usual this year But in Brisbane CBD.... well life goes on as normal Keep it in perspective .

    Why do goodbyes never get easier?

    ! ? Bit confused. You say you have a narcissist mother (which sounds awful)......yet you feel tremendous amounts of guilt Why? Is that YOUR guilt?........ Or something your mother is projecting onto you? All parents age, but the actual health of your parents is their responsibility - not yours. Would they consider moving to Australia? Certainly a better lifestyle than in the UK. If not, consider my cousin who lived in the UK against her will as she felt guilty about leaving ageing parents. She had 30 years of being a martyr, before finally permanently moving to Australia upon their deaths. For the last 5 years they had no idea who she was (added stress).... She could have been happily living in Australia (where she wanted to be) and looked after them just as well there. But none of that eventuated, as she was lambasted for years by a narcissist mother Hope the same fate does not befall you

    Avalon Beach area to Sydney CBD

    I do it daily. About one hour by car (nearly two hours by bus) - I drive myself It gets very congested if you leave late (after 7am) I leave home around 6am every day, and it is still fine then Alternatively, you could drive to Manly and get the ferry from there. If you are ratepayer on the Northern Beaches, you get a yearly parking permit, and you can park free all day at Manly Loads of people do the commute, no dramas at all. My commute in London was worse. .

    Which Labrador?

    Black or chocolate for me - as shows up less dirt But then again, having said that, yellow would be better, as you can see the ticks more easily Honestly, ticks can very easily kill at pet, so better to see them on a yellow dog .

    Yellow Dusters

    What a bizarre question I buy dusters (pink) from Coles and Bunnings. Otherwise, if you anal-retentively want "Traditional British Yellow Dusters", then eBay is your best bet. Personally I cannot use anything yellow, as brings me out is a rash

    Things you just don't get.

    Next time my dog does that, I will track you down Tony, and give you a tonguey

    Things you just don't get.

    Yes. I have slavered at the thought of steamed kale after mowing the lawn - true - not joking
