The book ruined true movie for me.

Read it before watching and thought the movie was overrated.

Godfather II is better anyway

Went to the footy today with my daughter. On the way out had to stop at the gent's. some young lads were kind of trying to chat her up whilst I was absent, nothing rude or lewd.

The looks on their faces when she said 'Hey dad' and I stood there towering over them.

Kind of feel bad for their egos, but watching them scurry away was pretty comical.

Love rainy mornings that clear up before lunch. Something very refreshing about it.

Just waiting for my neighbour to start watering his lawn now.......

That's because you have a life outside of your lawn :)

I've been finding that quite a bit with Aldi teas (Diplomat brand). It's got front flavour notes, but no depth.

Problem can be solved by using two bags, but then you're paying the same as a major brand.

Good choice. Peru, Honduras and Ecuador are all good. Brazil and Colombia are good, but not as good as the others.

Australia

Celebrating 30 years of electricity

So many little jokes in that episode

Love it how Aussies have embraced it.

I saw them in concert by accident.

Ended up eating hot dogs from a street vendor with them after the show and talking about career choices and how I should continue with my education.

Watching last week's SNL and the Beavis and Butthead skit is far better than the clips I've seen.

Google it and watch it please.

I used to think drop bears were joke. I know better now. Those cunts are serious business.

Surstromming, hakarl and natto. With some Malort to wash it down, thank you.

I can deal with BO of the day, but a stinky Gi is just so wrong. Our coach has asked people to leave class on account of stank.

Nah, too palatable.

Yes I have!!!!

1:1 ratio of rice to water

Pressure cook on high for 3 minutes.

Works every time.

DO NOTE CHANGE THE WATER TO RICE RATIO. EACH CUP OF RICE NEEDS A CUP OF WATER. BELIEVE ME

Always funny to see a cop show, where they pull over some beat up late model Holden, with bald tyres, that was speeding through a red light. Only to find gear, cash and paraphernalia inside and the driver arguing that cops should be catching real criminals.

Years ago I drove unlicensed (license expired, couldn't book a test soon enough, but still had to drive...reasons not excuses...it was wrong) and it made be the best driver. No speeding. No stupid shit.

Honestly, don't know. I've only ever cooked Basmati like this. I would try maybe like half and half as a trial run for 3 and see how it goes.
I can tell you that Basmati burns at 4 minutes though.

It's so nice out, I feel guilty for sitting at my desk. Lunchtime walk in the sunshine is on the cards methinks.

Hey now. Trained today and managed to submit a higher belt by pure will and strength.

That kind of sums up Australia. Except Aussie beer being the best in the world. Not even top 10 in my books 😁

I must say, the local jargon takes a while getting used to.

By now I've managed to get a good handle on it.

Tried something novel last night. Went to bed without the aid of electronics. Phone went on the charger and my head hit the pillow. 8 hours of sleep later, I feel fantabulous.

@MeanElevator@aussie.zone avatar

I have my moments, but generally when I go to bed I'm not sleepy enough. Just need to push through on the couch before going to bed I guess.

MeanElevator ,
@MeanElevator@aussie.zone avatar

My struggle is with falling asleep when only mildly sleepy. One little mental jolt and I'm awake again.

Generally I'm in bed between 11-11:30 but some days that gets pushed out past midnight.

Got my flu shot yesterday and feeling a bit meh today. Generally I have little to no side effects, but this one has managed to kick my arse slightly.

Get your flu shots anyway people!!

You'll probably be fine. I was sick a fair bit last year, so I figure my immune system isn't as good as it once was.

Stumbled onto something on insta that has become my comfort watching. Opening sports card packs from the early 90s (north american leagues). I used to collect cards around that time, and the nostalgia hits hard, but in a good way.

We were a pretty active community back on Reddit,. especially during COVID.

Many of us migrated here last year during the Reddit boycott/fuckery.

We share random mundane shit and talk shit with each other.

Most of my posts are me being annoyed with me neighbours mowing their lawn twice a week or watering the same lawn when it's raining.

Feel free to join us. You don't have to live here to talk shit 😊

My dad used to call meals like that 'week in review'

Sometimes it worked. Otjer times, not so much.

MeanElevator ,
@MeanElevator@aussie.zone avatar

It's weird that 'aiming higher' means getting a new job, more often than not.

I honestly think that workplaces, in general, pigeon hole a person into a role and that's all.

All the best in your search and progress.

If you can get a permanent government gig, they'll pay for your education in some cases.

City outing with the fam today. Dinner on Lygon street. Ordered a beer and the waiter put it in front of my son. We had a chuckle and asked the waiter how old did he think my son was. The dude said 18+20 for sure.

I think it made my son's, who is actually 14, year.

I think she's related to my fatty
