Overstretching, and it's cold and Gough is dead and things we don't say



Good morning world, guess what I slept in this morning the first thing I thought when I got up was I slept in the second thought was I don't feel well so maybe that is why I slept in..............I am now up and dressed but really don't feel like doing much of anything this morning.

It looks cold and wet outside, I am in long pants and socks on my feet as it is cold, have to say this weather lately is annoying, it's hot then cold then hot again sometimes all in one day.

Now here is a question for you do you ever find yourself over stretching while on the toilet, I have there have been times when I am on the toilet wiping my bum and think to myself stop stretching Jo-Anne where do you think your bum is in the next room. Really have no idea why I do that but I do and it is annoying but being annoying doesn't seem to stop me stretching like my bum is in another room. Yes I know you are wondering why on earth I would share this with the world but hell my life is an open book and I share many embarrassing things.

The big news here today is that Gough Whitlam has died he was our 21st Prime Minister, what I remember about him is that he was the only Prime Minister to be sacked from office that happened in 1975. Although everything I am hearing on the telly this morning is that he did a lot of good for the country in the 3 short years he was Prime Ministers. He brought in no fault divorce, which is a good thing, he is also the one who brought home our troops from Vietnam.

Moving on to things that are not said in Australia by Australians, like “crikey” the only person who said that was Steve Irwin (the crocodile hunter),http://www.crocodilehunter.com.au/crocodile_hunter/about_steve_terri/

Also don't hear people saying “fair dinkum” that was a saying from my grandfathers generation.

We also don't say “g'day” usually we say “hi” or “hello”, also my generation and young generations don't call women “sheila” that is also one for past generations.

Lastly we don't use the term “root” because here it means to have sex, it is often used in place of f****k. So to say you are rooting for someone just sounds wrong.


Ok that is enough dribble for this post, hope all have a good day, or night or whatever it is where you are.

  1. Yes, I find myself stretching. But it's because my ass is so freaking huge that I have to. LOL

  2. I had just seen the headline about Gough- I will have to look into him further. Your stretching I think can go without further exploration on my part, though.

    1. I didn't know that much about him as when he was PM I was only a child I was in year 6 when he got booted out of office

  3. Okay, I've read further. Sounds like Kerr was your basic skunk and Gough let his overconfidence get him shafted... kinda like Nixon.

    1. Yeah we all know Gough's words after he was booted out 'God save the Queen', because nothing will save the Governor-General!

  4. You taught me a lot about Australia. I don't think I overstretch when I'm on the toilet. I feel quite certain where my butt is.

    Love,

  5. Hi Jo-Anne or should I say g'day mate!

    I didn't turn on the news this morning so I missed the breaking news of Gough's death. He was a spunky old guy wasn't he? He tried really hard to make Australia a better place in some ways. I'm eternally grateful to him that I went to university when he opened it up to other than the elite of which I am not lol! So RIP Gough! A good innings as a previous generation would say, and a few die hards today!

    Fair dinkum, it's so good to be reading an Australian post in my rounds. Getting a bit sick of bloggers whingeing about being cold. What's that again?

    1. Yes he did a lot of good in the short time he was in office, I didn't realise how much he did till after his death and seeing about him on the news.

  6. I used to find myself stretching in the bathroom when I was a teenager.
    Despite what the nuns said, though, I never went blind.

  7. Thanks for the Aussie stuff. It's good to get a glimpse of what it's really like as opposed to what we see of you here. Hope you're feeling better.

  9. I'm shocked people don't say, "crikey" there, I thought it was like "you guys" here in the states, it depended where you lived. Huh, learn something new every day!
