Got a couple on the boil now. I tried to clean some old carpet with soapy water (IDIOT!) and am now learning how to properly lift it, dry it and restretch it. Useful but avoidable.

I've cycled the distance of Melbourne to Mildura in the last month, all within 5km of home and in ~1h increments. I also picked up a skipping rope yesterday. All in the name of burning the excess energy that isolation is building.

This sounds like the Sri Chimnoy Transcendental

Not quite that level of focus but there have been times when I've questioned my sanity.

The other fun project (provided you're slightly OCD and a bike geek) has been called "burbing", where you attempt to cycle every named street and lane within a suburb. I'm slowly chipping away at Coburg (fairly large area in the northern suburbs of Melbourne) with a friend. We'll meet up for an hour over lunch and cruise around having a chat. It's a bit repetitive and given the area, involves too many cobblestone lanes, but we're seeing lots of new places and shooting the shit.

Not so much a COVID project but given the timing and the fact that it doesn't really fit anywhere, the first waratah from our plant has bloomed after planting it a couple of years ago.

They should get bigger and better formed each year. This one should still improve as it finishes blooming and turns more red.

So, a bit like Lukhan Salakaia-Loto?

I've finally had it with my old man's neglected court yard. I've ordered a pressure washer and have made the yard's rejuvenation my iso-project.

Fielding suggestions for low-maintenance (don't trust him to do upkeep) plants for the flowerbeds that border the courtyard.

Athens concrete mate, no worries!
 
Convinced I have the Rona brainfog. Either that or fullblown early onset Alzheimers. Few months ago I noticed I was buggering up the typing out of words first thing in the morning. Not typos either. Just way off words in the wrong fucking place every now and then.

I heard the Alzi's lose control of their bowel functions towards the end. Better nip out and buy some man nappies. Camp Leader shouldnt be unduly alarmed. She's seen worse.

I try to visit this forum on a daily basis to keep my brain stimulated and ward off the Alzheimers but it doesnt seem to be working.

Whatever could be going wrong?

FFS.

LOL.

You're fine. When you log in each day with a different spelling of Dismal Pillock we'll get an MRI.
 
Film Pitch

Working title: "The Corona's Are On Me".

Genre: Action

Premise: The year is 2034 and the USA is unable to get more than 60% of its citizens Rona vaccinated due to false information/nutjobs etc. The subsequent increasingly virulent strains are slowly wiping these dopes out anyway but the US govt, led by President Johnson (Dwayne) loses patience and decides to "finish the job" by bringing in the military to inoculate the final few millions of resistors with pfizer-loaded tranquilizer guns. Let the hunt begin!

Brutally-Honest Meeting Room Pitch to Film Execs: "It can't fail! It's just one 3-hour long video-game safari hunt. Plus both sides can root for their guyz! Anti-vaxxers get their underground resistance types, the rest of us can see anti-vaxxers get hunted down like wild livestock! Are you AIDS-faced cnuts even listening to me? Ching ching motherfuckers!"

Location: The sweep starts along the length of the US/Canadian border and pushes down, door to door, hand to hand, down, down, until it finally gets to the Mexican border where the lasting remaining limping insurgents are pushed into the Rio Grande.

Lead Actor: The Rock.

Lead Military Actor: Rictus Erectus

Trailer Line: "Take your goddamn sweaty disgusting bloody facemasks and try your luck in Mexico, hombres! The Corona's are on me!" (Rictus)
