This kid is special. Her parents broke up when she was in her teens and she went her own way. Lived away from the family unit through her year 12 studies and university. Qualified as an Occupational Therapist. She surfs (very well by all accounts), she parties - sometimes a little too hard - and yes - has been known to crash into the dog fence a couple of times due to over imbibing and I have held her hair on one occasion as she drove the porcelain bus. She's organised and pragmatic, helpful and simply delicious.
She popped in tonight to say G'day and drop off a suitcase of Clare's one of those little wheely things that I haven't yet had the courage to open because it's probably full of dirty laundry and it's raining outside so I don't need more than I already have this weekend. Might be better to contain the pong . . then again there might be a little 'essence of Clare' that I'll save for a quiet moment.
Jem is home and back at work . . Clare is in Germany and planning the next leg to Tolmeso, Salzburg, Vienna then on to Slovenia and Croatia then Spain . . only 11 weeks to go but who's counting.
Unlike Clare who usually spends her Skype time venting, talking about hostels, asking what we're up to (which is significantly insignificant) or what they ate, Jem actually 'shared' a few of their travel stories and there is no doubt they had a mad time. South America still flowing through her veins and without doubt for her, the best part of their 7 month trip so far. Gem is back working with disabled children as an Occupational Therapist, recouping and regrouping. Getting some money together and rekindling friendships and reconnecting with family and planning a new year road trip to meet up with the SA tour group.
As always, it was nice to hug a 24 year old who'd spent so much time with my own intrepid traveller.
So tonight,after a pretty awesome day (no mean feat considering I was at work) no Friday Fuckwit.
Well alright, can't disappoint the punters - this week, the award goes to a Malaysian man who decided he would squeeze his pencil dick into a 'nut'. Not a pecan or walnut but a metal nut, the type that should be secured on the other end of a bolt!
A Malaysian welder had to have a nut removed from around his penis after an attempt to lengthen it before he gets engaged next week went embarrassingly wrong.
The nut got stuck on his penis following an erection, (don't ask) the Star newspaper reported, forcing him to seek help at a hospital in southern Johor state.
Staff from the Sultanah Aminah hospital had to drain some blood from the penis and cut away a top layer of skin before the object could be removed.
It said the fire and rescue department were also involved in trying to remove the nut from the unnamed welder, who is in his 20s and hoped the nut would weigh down his penis to make it longer.
On August 25, another young man in Kuala Lumpur had tried to increase his sexual prowess by slipping a steel ring around his penis, forcing the fire department to cut off the ring after doctors were unable to remove it. (Brings a whole new meaning to the 'jaws of life').
Favourite song of the week from electro/rock duo, The Dukes of Windsor with "Get It". No connection, One for the two young wide boys out there who have just experienced part A central in London, I hope you at least scored "Just one passionless kiss" take care . . .
