Got to be honest I don't really see the point, though I always liked lime which some people think is silly.

Returned an external hard drive on the weekend, 2 and a half years into a 3 year warranty. Last time I returned something to Jb Hi Fi I had to argue the point so was prepared for a punch on. Not only did I get a new HD on the spot, I got a new warranty for another 3 years and got 44 dollars refunded as the new HD was cheaper, remarkable!

The girl was young and hot and oh so friendly, pretty sure she just wanted the D.
Did you wipe the porn first?

ok this is the greatest individual song ever recorded. bar none. you cannot nominate anything better. what makes it so great, the meaning is one thing, but the huge grand scope of it all as a music, all the instruments, styles, genres, all mixed into one song. its like an everlasting anthem, like "smells like teen spirit" etc, but far grander. as always, must listen to it on a loop for ages, youll never get bored and pick up more subtleties. if you dont agree you can go fu** yourself.

was back in Adelaide last weekend. took my mate I was staying with out for lunch on sunday, got a parmi each (his was a surf and turf parmi), a beer each and a garlic bread to share for $31!

(admittedly we used a 2 for 1 voucher, but even with that the whole thing would have only cost $50)

My bookbinder pleases me enormously. Funny old Scottish guy, cash only, a Wisden rebind costs the rather odd amount of $57.30 and he does it in a week. I dropped off a 1912 to get done this morn.

It pleases me that book binders are a thing. I've never had a book bound and probably will never need to, but I like hearing that niche old professions still exist.

You can get a colorbond fence or brick wall knocked up in no time, but I wonder how many people still do quality tuck pointing and wrought iron. Probably costs a mint these days.

Ouch, the nostalgia feels.

It's still behind Empire Records in my book.
Empire records another classic.

What did you use instead?
Fold a thick kitchen sponge in half. Put that in a glass. And

wait.

I texted the now 34 year old women who I took to see this at the cinema in Slough when she was 14 when I read this.
Did you say "you won't guess what. Peternorf just posted about American Pie on bigfooty! Remember when....."

Bloody young hotties trying to curry favour with me by giving me great customer service.

I'm on a diet so went down to get some chocolate sundaes at Mackers last night but got made some frappes instead. When I pointed out the error they apologised profusely, made the sundaes, gave them to me, refunded the full amount that i paid and then also offered me the frappes to take as well.

When you got it you got it
