It's Been 50 Days Since I've...


BS (blogosphere): Ok dave, now that we've clicked on your smartassed titled post, will you at least tell us what it was you last did 50 days ago?

YT (yours truly): Gaahhhn, take a punt mate!

BS: We don't speak Aussie slang, *sshole.

YT: Go on and give it a go!

BS: In english, perhaps?

YT: Take a guess, mate!

BS: Hmmmmm, perhaps that's the best translation we'll get...

BS: 50 days since you've picked your nose?

YT: Nope!

BS: 50 days since you've scratched your privates in public?

YT: Nope!

BS: 50 days since your wife was embarrassed to be seen with you in a public place?

YT: Nope! *grin*

BS: 50 days since you've gotten your lazy ass out from in front of the computer?

YT: Nope! I spend time in the pool, too!

BS: We give up...

Before I let you in on my little 50 day secret, I feel the need to post some cool parrot pictures. Especially since I've just subjected some of my more sensitive readers to my odd scents of humour.

Notice how everyone is watching the bloke flying:
cockatoos at sunrise

As cool as the lories are, whady'all think of that pigeon in the upper left?
lotsa lories

flash lorikeet
Flash! Aaaaa-ah
Saviour of the universe
He'll save everyone of us
He's a miracle
King of the impossible

Whoopsie, sorry about that. Just a bit of nostalgia kicking in.

It has now been 50 whole days




Washed my shorts!


Time out for a cool bird pic!



Ok, time in.

No seriously! It's true! I haven't washed my shorts for 50 days. Just ask my wife! Well, maybe you'd better not...

You gotta remember, I don't wear underwear. Here's a photo to prove it, see?
no underwear

Well, actually that's not true. I wear underwear beneath my cycling shorts when I'm riding. Yes, I can hear all you roadies and mounties screaming that you can't wear underwear under your cycling shorts. Ha! 40 years later and no blisters, boils or saddle sores.

I also don't shave my legs. Here's proof:
between hairy legs

And why don't I shave my legs? Cus I'm not vain! Read this for proof.

Anyways, back to me not washing my shorts --yes, I'm back on topic!

I jump in the pool 3 or 4 times a day, for a swim (or breakfast or lunch or dinner) between 30 minutes to 2 hours at a time. I keep 4 or 5 pairs of shorts outside on the bench and a couple of towels. That way when I get out of the pool not only do I not have to remember a towel, but I also don't have to remember dry shorts!

See!!?? Ain't I smart?

The way I figure it, the shorts being in the pool for a long time (wrapped around my butt, of course) while soaking in chlorine cleans them suckers pretty darned good. Then, after drying in the direct sun for a while, they are ready to be used for the next time I get out of the pool!

Neat, huh?

Just thought I'd let you all know that it's starting to cool off. In fact, WP is wrapped in a blanket as she types away next to me. And I've even put clothes on! (shorts and tank top, no underwear though)

Today's official high was 33 C (91.4 F) and I saw 92.5 F here. In the direct sun it was a very cool 117 F. As usual, the damned weather pixie on my sidebar is her usual lying self as she says it never got over 85 F. Twit.

But don't worry, I had my hour of pool excersize at 7 am while watching the parrots, no worries!

Hi Dave, did you know that Cockatoos love to nibble on wood.
In your first pic I would say that they're not looking at the birdie flying but are deciding which end of the deck fence they will gnaw on first especially those two on the right .. The Generals ... the Troopers are standing at ease... waiting... or maybe they're waiting on the flying cocky to finish his air surveillance of Operation:Shredder.
