How did you cool off today?

rosebud 31 January 2009 63

What a stinker.

Spent most of the arvo in prol soup, aka the local public swimming pool, dodging kiddy turds and wondering what foot fungus I’ll get this time.

Not too sure how high the UV index got, but the dirt bag index was in the ‘extreme’ range. (A dirt bag rating is calculated by multiplying a person’s number of missing teeth by their tattoos.)

Then calmed down with G&Ts sitting about a foot away from the portable air cooler at home.

Icy cold Coke and an air conditioner. And the giant freezer at work, of course.

Has the watermelon been macerated with vodka?

BoM says it’s going to be 39 on Saturday – then 23 on Monday. I recommend a big bowl of chilled soba noodles, followed by watermelon, all washed down with lots of wheat beer.

Ngunnawal shops (Non Platypus ones) sell Monaco Bars as well – I also discovered that they are my closest bubble o bill pusher – Man Bubble O Bills kick Monaco Bars arse the whole way around the freezer section IMO.

Good luck with the experiment, NoAddedMSG! I’m a great believer in experiments. They’re fun and often informative. You might invent something truly superlative!

Whats with the anti tattoo sentiments?

I guess everyone who has a tattoo is now a dirtbag by default, including myself.

Thank you very much….

At least mine was designed by me, and NOT a southern cross.

I have nothing against people with tatts, I just think they look like poop, unless of coure they’re written with Asian symbols.

Whoo! I am going to have a bit of an experiment tonight though, I’ll try making a sugar syrup from equal parts lemon juice and sugar and then putting a load of seriously crushed mint in it. I also have a bottle of strawberry cordial which I have been a little uncertain what to do with (it’s not so nice on its own) so I’ll try adding a lot of mint to some of that.

Here’s hoping it works better than my last experiment (honey roasted cashews) which I ended up feeding to the ants.

I’m putting in another request for the mint cordial recipe, please Granny!

I’m working on it, NoAddedMSG! We’ve fired off an email. I may even start a cordial recipe thread.

I was thinking about doing that….

I smeared my naked body in ice-cream and had Swedish lesbians lick it off.

I thought it was a gardening term used by salts of the earth.

Got a nice surprise to find that they’ve finally brought back MONACO BARs! Best.icecream.ever.

It’s a medical term, used, I believe, by doctors and nurses in casualty.

You would only rate if you had a missing tooth.

Tatto X Missing tooth = Dirtbag

shame that the “dirtbags” I saw at the erindale pool all had teeth and no tats. typical lowlifes though, jumping into the kiddie’s pool and scaring the kids. didn’t seem pleased when confronted by a couple of angry dads, me included. perhaps they buggered off to tuggeranong pool.

I’m just so happy to hear that Monaco Bars are back!

Danman Danman 10:06 am 02 Feb 09

I would start somewhere with infusing several hundred grams of mint leaves with a sugar syrup – maybe add some whole cardamon and star anise for some subtle variances ?

A splash of vanilla extract?

I’m putting in another request for the mint cordial recipe, please Granny!
