Sick note

I am Not Well. Got a wog from snogging some bastard the other night. Going back to bed after a nice hot vodka and lemon.

Storm building over Woy Woy

Storm building over Woy Woy. Nice bit of thunder and lightning and cool refreshing rain to follow. Just what the doctor ordered.

Storms galore at the moment. My trainer nearly cancelled last night for fear of lightning strike:

"RIP Aesthetic/Callisto. Struck down, just as her arse was looking good."

Oh yeah, and I hope you feel better soon.

Get well soon. Didn't you at least enjoy the snog with the bastard.

Blabberon said...

Wog? You got a wog?

I looked it up in your Ducktionary, to no avail.

What ever.

Bummer.

from Wikapaedia
Wog has also been used in Australia as a slang term for illness such as colds, the flu or malaria. This usage has been in existence since at least the early 1940s. It is recorded in the 1941 Popular Dictionary of Australian Slang by S. J. Baker as meaning a germ or parasite.[1]

Hope you're feeling better!

Just wanted to let you know I've spent the last couple of hours wading through your blogs... a trip down memory lane thats given me a renewed respect for the Peninsula (I hope Peninsular Plaza has removed the "r" since I last visited!).

I spent the first 25 years of my life in Woy Woy/Blackwall, and it's easy to take it for granted. Loved your walking adventures and the house photos.

Now I'm stuck in Sydney because of work, but look forward to getting myself a fibro shack in the next couple of years and getting back home. As my Sydney toff mates say "You can take the boy out of Woy Woy, but you can't take Woy Woy out of the boy."

Did you encounter the old WWII airfield bitumen on your lane walks? I remember digging it out of the back yard with the old man with fond memories.

Aesthetic - S/he must've seen that lightning programme as well :)

Struck down, just as her arse was looking good.

ROFL.

Thank yer.

Emma - Thank yer. I did indeed. He was a sexy beast.

Ron - Will add that one to my Ducktionary toot sweet. Thanks for the heads up.

Peter - Thank yer, I will.

Anon #1 - Thanks for the wog definition.

Anon #2 - I never noticed the r on the Peninsular Plaza. Will have a look.

Thank yer kindly. It's good to know people are getting as much out of reading my wee adventures as I am having them.

Haven't laid eyes on any remains of the old airstrip yet but I remain hopeful. Was your house right on Trafalgar?

Gosh! A snog? I must go out and get one of those, now you mention it.

I was going to say something frightfully witty about the Coathanger post but Comments don't appear to be enabled.

Unless this old Demon Box is thwarting me again.

Bah!

its not just you, inexplicable, the comments for the harbour bridge post do indeed seem to be missing did you forget to turn them on or something spike?

Spike said...

Device dear - I highly recommend it though you might want to get a flu jab first pr stick a thermometer in them.

Michael - Nah. Blogger was having a little lie down. Seems to be working this morning. Good thing too. I've got a shitload of Coathanger photos to post.

I remember digging up some strange black gooey stuff in the sand fill dumped on my neighbours block in the 70's adjacent to Trafalgar Ave , what was the bitumen used for ?
p.s Spike do you have that council map online or could you email moi a copy ?

Spike said...

Steve, as far as I know the old WWII airstrip was gravel but I've no idea what else they were doing there. The armed forces do some weird shit so I'm betting the gooey stuff is theirs.

The map is an A2 and may never be scanned. A pop into Gosford Lib's LS section might get you a gander at the old maps.
