  1. People mocked me too when I said that if a naked man rode a bike down Crown St, his only problem would be if he was not wearing a helmet and the police booked him. These blokes were in Riley St and NOBODY noticed, except me, ever the 'tourist' even in my own 'burb. Maybe they weren't 'blue spidermen' after all though? Wasn't there a commercial for British Gas or something where they all dressed up like that?

    Northern Beaches Blokes

    Hi all... I don't get on here as much as I would like but I have recently had a couple of quite scary experiences that have left me needing to offload somewhere that isn't facebook...!!!! I am well aware that boys & beer don't mix too well, but I have been on the receiving end of 2 who feel that it is their right to throw their weight around when I don't appear to be doing what they think I should be doing. One physically abused me back in January and was swiftly evicted from my life. The other, an ex who lasted all of 2 months, saw fit to trash my unit on the weekend. This happened after he had become verbally abusive to me (due in no small part to drinking all day while watching the RWC action). I decided to leave the friends place that we were at and head out to meet some friends where I knew I would be safe. He followed me home and I stupidly let him in as he said he had left his wallet inside... All is now fine, I have cleaned up the mess and life goes on alone. I understand that I could well be the problem, I don't particularly like being told what to do by an arrogant bloke.... I also have a wide circle of both male and female friends of varying ages and consider myself very lucky to have this after only being here a couple of years. The Aussie males I have met who want to be more than friends just don't like this or understand why I need this and seem to feel very threatened by the fact that they are not the only person in my life, even though we started out as friends... I just don't know what to do... How do you know when you can believe a bloke when he says one thing and then acts in a completely different way...? Confused Cx
  3. Interesting article from the Sydney Morning Herald. Ok, fellas own up, who qualifies and who amongst you poms are going :wink:
  4. Very important for the older blokes... When you are standing at attention, pointing Percy at the porcelain.... DO NOT SNEEZE:no::arghh::arghh: :laugh: Cheers, Bobj.
  5. Hi All, Did any of the blokes who have emigrated to Oz fancy a break from there other halves and a few beers and banter - That said other halves are more than welcome. I so it would be great to hear from you. Cheers !
  6. If any blokes fancy a few beers: PM me for details
  7. There seems to be lots of ladies that lunch kind of meet ups but little for the fellas on the expat forums. So as a few of us are meeting up on Friday after work i thought I'd open it up. Mrs Parmas, 25 Little Bourke Street - http://www.mrsparmas.com.au (fantastic beer selection) - I'll be there around 5 if not earlier!
  8. Hi there, We have just moved from London to Perth. So far we like it here a lot, specially the weather, beaches and all the outdoor stuff we can do. The only problem is that things are a bit quiet here and we don’t know anyone here yet! (except of course the people at work if that counts...) We both are professional guys in the early 40’s, and we like doing the usual stuff - short trips, going out for drinks and dinner, cinema, theatre, shopping, having friends around for dinner and go to the beach on weekends. Despite the fact that we love the beach, we decided to rent an apartment near the city to be near everything and to make commute to work easier (it was a pain in London...) I think it was the right thing to do as at any time we can just walk to our local pub and not feel too isolated... Still, we are just a 15 min drive from City beach! It would be nice to meet other like-minded (or not so like-minded) people! Cheers, Luis

    Three great blokes from Crown!

    Well, Crown have been here for 3 days and finally this afternoon all our worldly goods are on their way to Oz. We have had 3 of the most wonderful chaps I've ever met. Mark, Brian & Jonny (who has only just left school Bless!) have worked their little butts off! It didnt all fit in but boy did they try. We have a few boxes (45:shocked:) left over which will go in another container on Friday. I'm in bed now as its the only thing left in the house. Just wanted to say how well the Crown Boys did and we are more than pleased so far. Oh, and they're from Swansea too. Sam xx
  12. Apologies if this has had an airing before , but it is such useful info............. 1.) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up. 2.) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house. 3.) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine. 4.) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It! 5.) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.) 6.) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake. 7.) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you're welcome. 8.) Whatever: Is a women's way of saying F@!K YOU! 9.) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to #3.
