3. For a Laugh

I got this via email (source unknown), it’s probably been around since Sergey was in shorts – but it gave me a laugh.

An Aussie Love Poem

Of course I love ya darlin
You’re a bloody top-notch bird
And when I say you’re gorgeous
I mean every single word

So ya bum is on the big side
I don’t mind a bit of flab
It means that when I’m ready
There’s somethin there to grab

So your belly isn’t flat no more
I tell ya, I don’t care
So long as when I cuddle ya
I can get my arms round there

No sheila who is your age
Has nice round perky breasts
They just gave in to gravity
But I know ya did ya best

I’m tellin’ ya the truth now
I never tell ya lies
I think its very sexy
That you’ve got dimples on ya thighs

I swear on me nanna’s grave now
The moment that we met
I thought you was as good as
I was ever gonna get

No matter what u look like
I’ll always love ya dear
Now shut up while the footy’s on
And fetch another beer.

I reckon there’s a counter version to that – anyone feeling creative?!

4. UnMeme Memes

I like the concept of an “UnMeme” which is kind of like a Clayton’s meme – you say thanks, but don’t play along. It’s a bit more social than a No Meme.

So, thank you to Kelley for tagging me in the Eight Things meme, and also to Sue for the lovely Christmas card.

5. Funny Posts

Swollen Pickles displays five inappropriate logo designs – you have to wonder if these logo designers ever ask for a second opinion.

A funny tale from an Australian Google engineer about why he should not wear a suit.

6. Other News

NaBloPoMo officially concludes with this post – I made it!


Looks like we beat the parking ticket. I received a letter saying:

We have found meter ….. was not operating correctly at the time your husband attempted a transaction and have made a recommendation to the State Debt Recovery Office (SDRO) to cancel this infringement.

In the meantime, I apologise for any inconvenience you have experienced.

The council were exceptionally helpful and prompt. It was a very pleasant surprise 😀


G’day World turned three during the week – Happy Birthday Cameron! I had to laugh at this:

…I especially want to thank my family to allowing me to piss $500,000 of our life savings into TPN without lopping off my nads.

If you haven’t checked out the Podcast Network you’re missing some great content.


This fortnight’s Carnival of Australia is being hosted by Leigh at All for Women. The next carnival is being held at Mad Goat Lady so get your submissions in for Patric by Monday.


That’s it for this fortnight!

    YAY!! I made it too!

    Apparently there is a December one too. Not even contemplating that one! I usually post every day anyway but the pressure to come up with something cause you have to? No thanks!

    But it was fun! And if it wasn’t for NaBloPoMo I would never have found you!

    Hey Kelley

    I’m with you. I’ll pass! Fortunately I don’t think I resorted to too much “fluff”.

    Ditto, I have added a few great blogs but yours gives me the biggest laugh, don’t stop OK? You have a gift 😀

    Haha, Meg, you’re just trying to keep me busy. :-)

    Oh you are a sweetie. Gotta love the lovin’ from the internets. So now you can be my B….. well you know what I mean 😉

  5. Veronicaon 01 Dec 2007 at 9:56 pm

    I keep meaning to make my way over here and ask you nicely to add my blogs to the list of Aussie blogs that you have.

    Now I have! I’m proud of myself.
