Ohh! I’d forgotten about this goal!
I photographed my crotch this last year.
This last year I’ve gone on a zip-line twice, climbed 2 walls, repelled, and climbed on a ropes course. Each time I had to get into a harness and each time I was amazed at how it made everything look bigger. When no one was looking I discretely took a photograph of myself in my harness. I later showed the photo to my wife and she wasn’t impressed. I didn’t have the light at the correct angle.

My father can appear a little eccentric at times. It never occurred to me until I was 26 yrs old and thought about it that I realised his behaviour mightn’t be considered totally normal by some.
The funniest example I can think of is as such:
You ask any of my brother’s close friends about my Father’s preferred driving habits and they will recall how he used to happily drive them around locally, in London, in the Summer sporting just his y-fronts. Then also whatever the weather over the weekend he’d always be found in the garden pond with the kitchen colander, again in just his y-fronts.
About a year ago I was eating at my big brother’s home. It was pouring with rain outside and I commented on the miserable rain.
My brother turned to me and said: “You know what that means?”
I replied: “That Dad’ll be in the fish pond again?”
He laughed. I told him about our little brother’s bestmate telling someone exactly this and about our dad driving around London in just his y-fronts with the window open.
My brother muttered quietly under his breath: “At least he had his pants on.”
I asked him to repeat and confirm. Apparently this brother remembers at least 2 occasions when my dad collected him from the local underground station in Summer, window wide open and totally naked. We’re talking a very busy tube and bus station. ha!
My brother verified with: “Yes, stark bollocking, starkers, in his birthday suit.” 12 months ago
When I was young (grade 1 to 3) I stood up in front of class and told them that my mom said that I could grow my hair as long as I wanted. This was in the 60’s, long hair was a sign of rebellion. That very evening my parents pulled out the scissors and chopped my hair. The next day I heard a choir of “Spyrunner got a hair cut, Spyrunner got a hair cut”. My parents never knew the pain of embarrassment that I felt from that episode. I really wished they would have held off for at least a week. 12 months ago
Yesterday at church the minister’s daughter got up in front of the congregation and confessed that when she lost her job 8 months ago it was because she stole from the company. Her court date is coming up next week. I’ve done some embarrassing things in my life, but I have never told them to a large group of people like that. Kudos for her for her bravery.
Not surprisingly, her father preached about casting the first stone.
Good luck T. I hope everything turns out OK. 13 months ago
This actually happened to a co-worker of my mom’s but it’s too good not to pass on.
One day a lady was sitting at a coffee shop drinking a cup of coffee. A gentleman near her sat down with a donut and promptly got up and left, leaving an untouched donut at the table. Temptation finally got to the woman and she picked up the donut and took a bite. Suddenly she saw the man come back to his table with a cup of coffee. She was so embarrassed that she threw the donut at him and stormed out of the coffee shop.

Today at the British Library cafe I saw some young woman have her mobile phone stolen. This is a bit of a long dribbley story, but the upshot is that I kind of felt the girl deserved it for being so bloody stupid. In fact to the extend where I actually felt very little compassion towards her. Below’s the reason, but please only read it if you think I’m too heartless for words and need to know my logic!
Lunch time and the cafe’s very large but also very crowded. No tables are free. Most of the tables are little singular high tables with tall seats. A table just big enough for 1 person. This is probably as the cafe is also kind of an open hallway and loads of students use the tables for hours at a time. They come in with their own Costa coffees and work for hours hogging these tables.
The only table free appears to be reserved by someone’s jacket and small backpack on a seat. It annoys me as I saw it as the only table when I entered, and then again ten mins later when I have my drink. Someone’s selfishly hogging the table.
As it happens a guy leaves at the table next to it. Hence I sit there. For 10mins more the table in front is left empty and the person doesn’t seem to return to her belongings. I do think about letting security know (bombs n’ all), but I figured i’d rather enjoy my drink without the hassle. After all, students are so stupid with their heads in the clouds I’m certain it’s more likely to have been left there than a real terrorist threat.
Some guy comes along with a drink and wonders about sitting at the only free table in the cafe. I mention to him to just sit there as the table seems pretty empty. He picks up the bag and shakes it up and down 4 times saying “well, no bomb in there.” He sits at the empty chair also at this table. The guy goes after his drink, approx within 5mins. He was most likely the thief. Hence the inappropriate shaking of the bag for no real reason.
Then the girl at the next table, who’s been working on her laptop for yonks, suddenly wakes up to the fact that she’s left her backpack and jacket at the next table. She reclaims it. Then she starts panicking as her iphone’s been taken. Derr. Turns out she said she’d left her jacket there for 1 hr. 1 hour?!!! Umm, derr, what d’ya expect? There are large signs within 3 meters telling you to be careful as thieves operate in the cafe. This is London. People know you have to be very careful. Students have their heads in the clouds. Oh, while sitting there I also saw some other idiot student walk off leaving her files on a cafe table.
Note: Despite believing she deserved it and hoping maybe she’d learn from it, I still was nice to her and took her to security and helped her. With all those warning signs about thieves in the cafe, it’s sad but the only way some people learn is when it actually happens to them! She was particularly negligent and careless.
But maybe it’d be better not to publicly reveal on 43T that I’m so heartlessly cold! 13 months ago
Growing up we had a boarder. One day I was mad at her. I tightened up her right bra strap an inch and loosened the other one an inch. I was hoping that she would walk around lopsided all day. 13 months ago
The doctor had two free days for my surgery. I scheduled it for the day before we had two family weddings. I told my wife that was the only day I could get in. 13 months ago
This emu’s knocking on a bit (getting old). I’ve just ‘had’ to buy one of those emu-control underwear. The pull your stomach in type.

When I lived in Canada I taped 80’s T&A movies at the end of my parent’s VCR tapes. When I went to college I taped over the movies with baseball games. While clearing out my mother’s condo I came across a recording of Magic Flute; I’m pretty sure it included a few inning of the Blue Jays. 13 months ago
A year and a half ago our family got hit with lice. I had a rather mild case, since I have so little hair but the rest of the family was not quite as fortunate. We had to go through 2 treatments on successive weekends to get rid of all the nasty little guys. We did find the cheaper lice kits did not work nearly as well as the name brand versions. We also saw that many of the stores were out of their delousing products. Grand Rapids had quite a large, but silent epidemic. Several times I’ve gone to the local pharmacies I have noted how stocked their shelves are to see how paranoid I should be. 13 months ago
It’s 2:23pm and it’s probably the first time in about 4 weeks the sun has shone it’s rays between the clouds… shamefully I’m still suffering from this morning’s hang over, so much so I can’t even get it together to sit outside with a cuppa tea for 10 mins.
Oh, and a second little confession:
I’m not really an emu13 months ago
