A little story for you

I've been sent this a few times... and my disclaimer reads as such: it's a joke. I found it funny though... nothing more ;o)

True story, I was happy. My girlfriend and I had been dating for over a year, and so we decided to get married. My parents helped us in every way, my friends encouraged me, and my girlfriend? She was a dream! There was only one thing bothering me, very much indeed, and that one thing was her younger sister. My prospective sister-in-law was twenty years of age, wore tight mini skirts and low cut blouses. She would regularly bend down when near me and I got many a pleasant view of her underwear. It had to be deliberate. She never did it when she was near anyone else. One day little sister called and asked me to come over to check the wedding invitations. She was alone when I arrived. She whispered to me that soon I was to be married, and she had feelings and desires for me that she couldn't overcome and didn't really want to overcome. She told me that she wanted to make love to me just once before I got married and committed my life to her sister. I was in total shock and couldn't say a word. She said, "I'm going upstairs to my bedroom, and if you want to go ahead with it just come up and get me." I was stunned. I was frozen in shock as I watched her go up the stairs. When she reached the top she pulled down her panties and threw them down the stairs at me. I stood there for a moment, then turned and went straight to the front door. I opened the door and stepped out of the house. I walked straight towards my car. My future father-in-law was standing outside. With tears in his eyes he hugged me and said, "We are very happy that you have passed our little test. We couldn't ask for a better man for our daughter. Welcome to the family.

"The moral of this story is:"

"Always keep your condoms in your car."

New .fun link

Check it out here

Lots and lots of flash games...

Oh the list grows longer!

Come better weather I have a list of jobs longer than the preverbial arm.

On the Calibra:
Full service including plugs, leads, oil, rotor arm and cap
Remove spoiler holes and prep for new spoiler
Investigate new clutch
Tax and run for a few weeks

On the Porsche:
Full service.. this would seem obvious and easy - but neither is true. I have my DIY guides (I'll be buggered if I'm paying £1000 for an oil/plug change) so time will tell
Investigate a front end repsray and removal of door dent (the most annoying thing for me!)
Investigate practicality of Supercharger install by hand (let alone purchase)
Investigate new wheels... I want standard Turbo twists
Investigate new suspension... she's LOW. I could do with a Koni setup to stop wheels and arches hitting too often

On the DeLorean:
Sell it :o)

On the house:
Oh don't tempt me... maybe a bathroom floor. Maybe not. {shrugs}




Gotta love the police

So a blokey is caught doing 406mph in Cheshire. Quite clearly impossible.. but the Police will try to prosecute anyway.

ONLY in the UK... honestly.

Thought for the day

Overweight women should not wear stilettos

I did some research on this Supercharger kit for the 993.

TPC sell the kit for $6495. With current exchange rates being what they are that's £3825. It's £4995 here plus VAT plus fitting (around £1k plus VAT). Hmm. A trip to the US would be cheaper and a week off to fit in the summer.

I like my thinking.

I'm also clearly nuts.


The world has gone mad

This is just one example of several... and it's true - not a joke either.

It's true - you only need one good business idea.

Note to self

Write something useful

Putting the world to rights

Everyone has their own ideas of how the planet should be run. Everyone thinks it's being run incorrectly and that they (or in their mindset) could do better.

I disagree.

I won't go on about how I feel it should all be run. I really don't care. I'm only here for a few decades and I'm not about to waste valuable drinking... sorry, thinking time on world politics. I hear enough of it daily and don't really need an opinion - there are enough of them about.

And even if I have an opinion what could I do?

What is interesting is how some people express their feelings and thoughts. I monitor a few forums daily from the Calibra/Porsche forums to Neocron forums. In each people will vent, moan and generally put that particular world to rights. I'm happy to have an opinion there. I can make a difference there - people listen.... there.

So I'm off to monitor and express myself. {more laughter files - this time evil}

10 Print "Your PC sucks"...

My graphic card died a couple of hours ago. Coughed, spluttered and then gave it up hollywood style. That, of course is about as exciting as a PC dying gets. The fan stopped. I got it running but with some lovely effects on-screen (Engage!). Bugger.

Well now I'm using a PCI card. WooHoo. I'm stuck at 1024x768 and can't play games.


New PC time? {insert laughter file here}

Open house

I was informed last night that, while attending a family meal, people noticed how close I am to my girlfriend Gemma. Well, sure why not.
I'm also told she "reads me like a book" or "knows you very well" and so on. Yes she does. In fact she knows me better than anyone I know bar none. That, in itself should be scary but it is not.

For years I would brush off comments of finding "the one" or those stupid ideas of love at first sight and so.
They were (are) buzz words. Fate, destiny, blah blah blah. Yet there she is. An impossible creature.

So why contridict myself? Well I'm reading a book my Bill Bryson and although that in itself is nothing new, his book A Short History of Nearly Everything is. It'll make you feel insignificant in the warmest way possible.

The possibility of a 1055 protein string coming together randomly is zero. But it happened (and here we are). The chances that Gemma would be... well you get the drift. I'm a lucky man.
