Oops, forgot to reply to that other bit of Danny's post... Yes, I am considering moving to the UK for a year or two and working/seeing stuff. There was a bit of a time limit involved if I had to get a working holiday visa (have to apply before turning 31), but if I can become a citizen, it takes the pressure off a bit. Still would like to do that next year, though.

Got a pay rise backdated to May, though!
Ah ok, nice! Where in the city? What's it called? And are you moving to the UK or something?

I remember you telling me about that I think.

Oh and by the way, when I got off work yesterday I went to wog school. I walked from HWT to Southbank, to Flinders, then caught a train to Melb Central, then got off, walked round the block to get a tram to the uni at the end of the line, to discover I could have caught #67 I think it was from Flinders and it would have saved me all the trouble.

I hate that thing as well

Yeah, about the only thing MX is good for is laughing at it.
u2gigs

Spot on about MX

Oh really did they end up together?

It's a shame Mick Molloy hasn't been funny since The Late Show, not including Crackerjack and Bad Eggs. Also a shame we don't see much of Tony Martin either.

Sounds cool as Go for it. Just rug up I think.

(Can't you get a visa if you're 31 years old?)

Sounds not too bad. I will go one day, but I want to see Europe first.



That's four people who know of it.

"That's it. This interview is over. I don't want to talk to any of you. Except for Jane, she's a very beautiful women and I would make love to her like a tiger, like a tiiiiger..."


That would be awesome... thanks!
Arafat too.. oh gawd, the Mr Whippy thing... Pissweak world! Shirty the slightly aggressive bear... *wipes tear of mirth/nostalgia*

The US is at least cheaper than Europe at the moment! Urge to go back to Hawaii, rising....

Tony Martin as Warren Perso, creator of arthouse movies such as 'Filipino Furburger' and 'Confessions of a Bloke With a Really Big Donger'... ah they don't make em like they used to.

Ooh did you make it to the Hawaii concert?

I get a phone call and some of you sod off! Have a good one!

And where have Kim and Jen got to? They've both rather uncomfortably vanished ...

No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!!

I have a small amount of paranoia about broadcasting all the details of my life online... it's probably far too late by now to worry about that and I've probably mentioned it all at other times, but there you go. *L*

The building I work in is around William st/Flinders St... kinda near the Aquarium.

*phears teh stalkerz*

Yeah, some fucked up druggie who chased me. I've spent enough time around St Kilda to know that it's a dodgy-as-hell suburb despite what impression it might like to give to the world.

There's shitloads of trams that would have saved you the trouble there!

Visit: Champagne Comedy: The Late Show fan page. Forum, clips, D-Generation news or The Late Show - Australian Champagne Comedy 1992-1993 or

I also love Tony Martin's ragging on Neil Diamond, good as he is.

Or when he gets a letter from a fan about Cameron(?) Daddo which uses the word 'pisstake' to which Tony goes "which comes from the Italian piss-tah-kay"

night

Yeah, I'll be getting some thermals at the Snowgum sale, I think!

You can't get that specific working holiday visa if you're 31 or over, no. There are probably other visas you could apply for, but they'd all have different requirements etc...

And seeya!

And Danny... you'll never be a proper postwhore if you keep multiquoting like that.

No... by the time I wanted to go, it was far too late and I'd already spent the money on the plane ticket for last year's holiday.

Oh for a time machine!
