- But it’s not just texting, it’s e-mail, it’s voice-mail, it’s snail-mail …
- Well, that’s regular mail…
- Whatever, none of this is working. I had this guy, leaving me a voice-mail at work, so I called him at home, and then he e-mailed me on my Blackberry, and so I texted to his cell, and then he e-mailed me to my home account, and the whole thing just got out of control, and I miss the days where you had one phone number and one answering machine, and that one answering machine has one cassette-tape, and that one cassette-tape either had a message from the guy or it didn’t. And now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to get rejected by 7 different technologies. It’s exhausting…
Can I just say I love you? You don't know me but I am on of Wakey!Wakey!'s biggest fans and seeing your tagged posts on here reminds me that I'm not the only one who loves them and I love the fact that you're a fan :D i love them.
Well, you are my first anon, and what a message ! Thank you for what you said. I do agree with you, of course this is quite obvious, I love W!W! too !
DIARY OF A POMMIE IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA (just so you know, I love Britain, but this is really funny :), and sorry for the F-word...)
August 31 - Just got transferred with work from Leeds UK to our new home in Karratha, Western Australia. Now this is a town that knows how to live! Beautiful, sunny days and warm, balmy evenings. I watched the sunset from a deckchair by our pool yesterday.. It was beautiful. I’ve finally found my new home. I love it here..
September 13 - Really heating up now. It got to 31 today. No problem though. Living in air-conditioned home, driving air-conditioned car. What a pleasure to see the sun every day like this. I’m turning into a sun-worshipper - no blasted rain like back in Leeds!!
September 30 - Had the back yard landscaped with tropical plants today. Lots of palms and rocks. No more mowing lawns for me! Another scorcher today, but I love it here. It’s Paradise!
October 10 - The temperature hasn’t been below 35 all week. How do people get used to this kind of heat? At least today it’s windy though. Keeps the flies off a bit.. Acclimatizing is taking longer than we expected.
October 15 - Fell asleep by the pool yesterday. Got third degree burns over 60% of my body. Missed three days off work. What a dumb thing to do.. Got to respect the old sun in a climate like this!
October 20 - Didn’t notice Kitty (our cat) sneaking into the car before I left for work this morning. By the time I got back to the car after work, Kitty had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and stuck to the upholstery. The car now smells like Whiskettes and cat shit. I’ve learned my lesson though: no more pets in this heat.
October 25 - This wind is a bastard. It feels like a giant fucking blow dryer. And it’s hot as hell! The home air conditioner is on the blink and the repair man charged $200 just to drive over and tell me he needs to order parts from fucking Perth ……The wife & the kids are complaining.
October 30 - The temperature’s up around 40 and the parts still haven’t arrived for the fucking air conditioner. House is an oven so we’ve all been sleeping outside by the pool for 3 nights now. Bloody $600,000 house and we can’t even go inside. Why the hell did I ever come here?
November 4 - Finally got the fucking air-conditioner fixed. It cost $1,500 and gets the temperature down to around 25 degrees, but the humidity makes it feel about 35. Stupid repairman. Fucking thief.
November 8 - If one more smart bastard says ‘Hot enough for you today?’ I’m going to fucking throttle him. Fucking heat! By the time I get to work, the car radiator is boiling over, my fucking clothes are soaking fucking wet and I smell like baked cat. Fucking place is the end of the Earth.
November 9 - Tried to run some errands after work, wore shorts, and sat on the black leather upholstery in my car. I thought my fucking arse was on fire. I lost 2 layers of flesh, all the hair on the backs of my legs and off my fucking arse. Now the car smells like burnt hair, fried arse and baked cat. Fuck. Fuck.. Fuck.
November 10 — The Weather report might as well be a fucking recording.. Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny, Hot and fucking sunny. It never fucking changes! It’s been too hot to do anything for 2 fucking months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week. Fuck!
November 15 - Doesn’t it ever rain in this damn fucking place? Water restrictions will be next, so my $5,000 worth of palms might just dry up and blow into the fucking pool.. The only things that thrive in this fucking hell-hole are the fucking flies. You don’t dare open your mouth for fear of swallowing half a dozen of the little bastards!
November 20 - Welcome to HELL! It got to 45 fuckin’ degrees today. Now the air conditioner’s gone in my car. The repair man came to fix it and said, ‘Hot enough for you today?’ I wanted to shove the fucking car up his fucking arse. Anyway, had to spend the $2,500 mortgage payment to bail me out of jail for assaulting the stupid prick. Fucking Karratha! What kind of sick, demented fucking idiot would want to live here!
December 1 - WHAT!!!! The FIRST day of Summer!!!! You are fucking kidding me!
