My bro is about to buy some front loaders too. He'll be moving to a new unit in a week's time.

I on the other hand am taking advantage of the Steam sales and the further $8 off when spending $45. Picked up a few things that have been on my wishlist for a while...

Nice and diverse range of games to keep me sane.

That's a fairly decent choice(i deal with broken shit for a living), as long as all the plastic isnt shattered when it comes out of the box you'll be golden.

Edit: fairly reasonable price too(with the code), that's about as good as you'll get without working for one of the big comps or the right supplier contact.

Dan Murphy's probably wont approve my review so i feel like you guys need to be made aware of this product:

Image


I literally signed up just because people need to be warned about this...

Over the past few months I've been working my way through the available catalogue of ciders in DM's and I've only got a handful left to sample, so i feel like i have a bit of a handle on what I like and don't like (which is why this shocked me, as i like the less sweet varieties).

Remember in Highschool when you put that bruised apple in your locker and accidentally pushed it behind the chemistry textbook you never have to take to class?

Remember when you found it 2 weeks later and, mistaking it for the apple you purchased yesterday, bit into it?

That's what this tastes like, carbonated, brused, warm (somehow even when on ice), old apple.

When i first tried it i had drunk a few sweeter ciders and a Saison so, despite the shock, resolved to give it another try the next day with a fresh palate, perhaps out of a chilled glass with no ice(maybe i had a distasteful piece of ice?), the result was no different.

First can went down the sink, second can went down the sink, final 2 cans are in the bin. Also now my sink smells terrible.


-15/10, would not recommend to anyone, not even Hitler.

If i stumbled out of the desert and one of you were standing there holding an icy chilled can of Stowford Press and a warm, 2 week old jug of your own rancid pis.... I'd ask you for two glasses of the piss.

Honestly mate, buy a single next time you have mates around and all taste it, everything else you drink will go up 5 points.

There's still vacant rooms on the ship, Neko ;)

Technically I didn't buy this now... I bought it over 10yrs ago. But it's spent most of that time at my bro's place than mine. He didn't learn how to play it but rather than shoving it up his arse (see my signature block if you don't get this), now that he's downsized, I've taken it back so it kinda feels like I've just bought it.

I saw the picture before I read the commentary, and was about to threaten to shove it up your ass if you don't learn to play the fucking thing too :lol:

As for the boardies, definitely not bullet proof, but I'm going on this holiday dressing like the person I am (ya know, almost 40, married, a professional) aaaaand my cousin (who is 4 weeks older than me) is coming along dressed like she's "available for a fee" if you get my drift. So we're going to look quite the contrast!

Physio has suggested wearing a wrist brace with a metal thing in it to make it more rigid to help the stretched ligaments in my wrist and hand.. so

Yeah I used a cheap one when I first hurt it but the physio suggested something more robust and to wear it more often, I'd take this over plaster any day.

Added 16kg to my grip strength compared to my last physio though so the exercises are working but not helping the ligaments, so we'll give it a few more weeks then off for CT or MRI scan and referral to a specialist, although fingers crossed it doesn't get that far.

I'm going to have to start driving my mouse left handed at work, would be good if I could find a cheap track pad or one of those mice with balls instead.

Just booked "The Ultimate Romance Package" for our cruise, purely because it's awesome value. You get a bottle of Moet and chocolate dipped strawberries in your cabin on departure, canapes served in your cabin each day at 4pm, champagne breakfast for two on two different mornings of our choice, one professional 8x10 photo and a $120 dining voucher to use at any of the premium restaurants on board.

A bottle of Moet on board is $89, so just that plus the dining voucher covers the $200 fee, so the strawberries, canapes, breakfasts and photos are essentially free.

Also just purchased our parking through Cruise Control Parking - highly recommended, you drive up to the cruise terminal, they're waiting for you at the drop-off zone. They unload your bags and take them to baggage drop for you, they photograph the condition of your vehicle and then they drive it away to secure parking. When you disembark, they're waiting for you with a freshly washed car, they load up your bags and off you go.

It's actually more expensive to self-park in Wilson Parking and pay for 4 x return ferry transfers, and a lot more fucking around especially if it's raining.
