What makes you grin? Antidote to grumpy thread


Recommended Posts

Last time I went to the ‘Dam was with a group of mates, one of whom was desperate to shag a prostitute. Not sure why, must’ve been a bucket list thing or something. Despite being outwardly confident about the whole idea he ended up prevaricating so much that he ended being taken down to the red light district by another mate’s girlfriend so she could do all the ‘setting up’ for him and so she could make sure he got a nice girl to go with.

They use so much lube I doubt he'd notice either way. So I've heard...

I'm done in, I've spent a goodly portion of yesterday and today painting the fences in the garden and I'm exhausted! I've done about 40m of 6' high fence panels in Ronseal 'one-coat*' stain.

They look good though, and doing it now means I could get in behind all the shrubs in the border on one side while the leaves have fallen off. I just have 2 smaller panels to do on one side that I can't get at until the new grass I put down as seed has grown a bit more, and its less boggy, plus the far end which I think is three more 4' x 6' panels but I need another tub of stain for that.

I'm pretty pleased with how it looks, and I'm also very pleased that of the three fences that hem in my garden, I'm only responsible for one of them. And its the most recent and most stable by quite a long way!

In an age of political upheaval, global instability, pandemics and conspiracies, there is a person in New Zealand who cuts through the confusion and reports on what really matters

A728934F-B0FA-4DC6-A16D-7EAFCA5176B4.jpeg

Keith Fishingham, 22 from somewhere cold said he had “been on a massive sesh with some Walruses” and last remembered climbing into a Taxi outside an Ice Bar.  He said he had enjoyed the Park “especially the roundabout” but eventually a Policeman with a Pork and Apple with Sage had proved too tempting.

”Normally I’m more into Fish but variety, spice of life and all that”

Keith was last seen heading home.  When asked whether he knew the way, he said “Its OK mate, there’s some Japanese whaling ships nearby, I will check with them.  Cheers yeah”

Lovely tale all round.

Got a Horn problem ?
Read on....

After next to no reasearch I settled on the idea of a Stebel Nautilus twin tone 12v thing, integrated air compressor and dual horns.
Supposed to be 139db of loud.
I had a Stebel musical air horn years ago, played a "Cavalry Charge" tune, if you just blipped it a few times it could possibly be mistaken
for a French Police vehicle if you happened to be driving through France in a Banger Rally vehicle.

Amazon price £41 delivered by 9th February

mx5parts £34.48, could be here tomorrow

https://www.mx5parts.co.uk/stebel-nautilus-electropneumatic-horn-p-3369.html


1 x 12V Stebel Nautilus Electropneumatic Horn, Red (Si6778) = £29.54
------------------------------------------------------
Total Goods: £29.54
 (Delivery Charge): £4.94
Total includes UK VAT of: £5.74
Total: £34.48

 

So if your horn is lacking, a bit of MX5 enhancement might help.

It made me happy because a UK company has what I want on the shelf and getting it in my hands does NOT put money in the genuinely massive pockets of Jeff Bezos.
Buy your Italian stuff from a company supporting Japanese cars, its the way forward !

I’m sure it’s safe to post here as nobody from my extended family would ever frequent such a forum focused on vehicular nonsense.

watched a programme on BBC iplayer yesterday. Nothing unusual with that, I know, but it was narrated from start to finish by my niece. 
I know I have played no part in the tireless effort and tenacity on her part in achieving what she has achieved so far and I know that she will grow much, much further.

Still, makes me feel a bit proud of her.

Had an unusual car accident this morning, hit a snowman. I was assuming snowmen would be soft and fluffy, this was like hitting a boulder. 

Its what would stop me driving into a snowman unless I'd made it myself first or poked it with a stick to be sure... Same reason I tell the kids to shut up when the want me to 'splash the puddles' which entails hitting the shitty fucked up verge of wherever B road we are driving at b road speeds with my nice airtight tyre and non knocking suspension... No thanks kids, be quiet!

tomorrow i am going to throw my notice in at work.

i've been in the shit-can job for 10 weeks and i really fuckin' hate it, plus i really suck at it too!

today it took me the better part of two hours to drive to the office, and got snide remarks for my apparent tardy-ness when i arrived.

see all that rain we had last night? well north of Whitby, and above Sleight's, that rain was snow.... and i've got no choice but to drive that way. to get there! the others in the office drive something like 8 miles to get there, i'm doing the better part of 60, each way. all i'm doing with my time is sitting in the car and spending what ever i earn on diesel.

so fuck it, if i don't jump ship i'll only get pushed, plus each time i get in that road i feel i'm taking my life in my own hands. no job is worth the heartburn, sleepless nights and general malaise that it is causing me.

 

 

today i have done the deed.

after fretting all weekend about it, and i mean fretting about it too, sleepless nights, screwed up tum, palpitations, heart burn and no appetite, 

the whole long list of symptoms  of "stress" i have handed the notice over.

ok, so i originally wrote it on Thursday, and this morning i rewrote it cos it was, well, "terse" to say the least, but today its gone and been handed over.

i finish on Friday.

and after that, well lets just say that it has lifted a weight off my shoulders.

to compound everything, i have actually had an ok working day today to.

odd, eh?

No wonder why you was stressed. You were doing the work of 3 hence 3 resignations. Hope you find something else soon.

Was it walking, driving, or were you on a neighbours front lawn?

It just leapt out at me. It was on the verge of a very narrow country lane, and made more treacherous by having frozen solid last night. 

Luckily the Cashcow shrugs off impact damage like a Volvo 740.
