A word for everything on Australia

If there's one word that can be used in almost any situation,it has to be the word PISS.
read will see what I mean.......unless you want to

"Piss OFF"........ then you'd be out of here quick, but if I told you to "piss OFF",then you might or might not go depending how I said it,if I'm laughing ,you don't have to go ,I just don't believe what you just said.If I'm angry though, you'd better dissapear quick.
I can "TAKE THE piss" by making fun of you, I can "TAKE A piss" which is passing urine.

If I'm "pissED" then its more than likely because I've taken "TOO MUCH piss' :drank too many beers, because i was "ON THE piss",probably at a "piss UP" or party.There are stages of pissed ...just pissed, heaps pissed, way pissed,pissed as a fart,paraletic pissed,passed out pissed.

Because of the american infulence here, now young people can be "pissED" with you when they're angry, but because of my age I'll be" pissed OFF" at you ,when I'm cranky.

It can be pissING DOWN with rain,but the fireplace has already been set up so its " a piece of piss" to get it started,very easy.

I'm always pissPOOR when I have no money,.perhaps because I "Pissed it away" squandering it on something silly.

If my wine "tastes like Piss" it's not very good quality and I would have bought it at a bargain price because "Im as mean as cat's piss"

I just hope you don't think I've made a pisspoor effort on my blog and my writing is not pissweak.

Let's knock down this wall....

When hubby and I bought this 95 yr old house 5 years ago,it was a renovators dream.The decor was 1930's depression and 1940's rationing in style. We scraped back the lead paint,lifted the ancient carpet and layers of lino and did basic renovation on the bathroom and kitchen and moved in. 5 years down the track the paint faded the carpet was grubby and time to start again.
So in with the blue and white paint and it came up a treat,nice and fresh.
2 of the 3 kids have left home and hubby stared at the wall between the lounge and bedroom and said "lets tear it down".He did.Now, in that bedroom was about 30 boxes of assorted hoarding of the 4 out of 5 of us that hoard. Where to put it? The tiny sleepout now has the 30 assorted boxes,plus the remainder of the stock from our failed art gallery.
Now we have somewhere to put the pool table.
Hubby is one of those ebayers, that buys things for "one day". His one day has come and now we have an assembled pool table upside down in the extended part of the loungeroom. We just have to find 4 able bodied men to help us flip it over....One day!!!
To finish the room,we need to find the able bodied men, flip the table over and move it into the other half of the room,so we can lay the carpet in the new half,then move all the loungeroom furniture in there,but first we need to finsih painting the ceiling in the old half.
Then there's these new fangled ceiling down lights that change colors,he's working on that now.Just the other day he bought a tap fitting that changes coulour when the water runs.And it doesn't just run, it pours gently over a curved piece of glass before it hits the sink.
Yesterday he had a thought that if he put rollers on his full size suit of armour, he could attatch it to the door and when anyone opened it they would come face to face with...George!!!
I'm beginning to feel like a theatre nurse..only instead of scalpel...forceps..its...glue gun..hammer...paintbrush.....

That facebook thing

Hello, my name is Bee and I'm a facebook addict :)
Why? I hear you ask... the hell I know, but I have found lost friends and relatives,,made some new friends and I'm just a sucker for gossip I guess.

I've been in poking wars, barnraisings, collected many eggs and apparently had one too many cocktails.I'm one of those people that will become your neighbor so you can get more points in your game but I don't really play the games...I'm too busy returning all the requested items!

I have made some really nice friends there though and joined some fun groups including my old schools.I love the old photos.

I put a lot of old photos on my page too, lots of old family,most of them didn't mind and I only had one letter asking me to cease and desist.Some people have no sense of humour , really, doesn't everyone put straws up their nose and in their ears while sitting on a toy elephant at one time or another???

It is a fun way to catch up with people,but I know I'm on there too means I don't have a life.I do, it's just a very quiet one.I don't get out much.when I do,you'll hear about it here ...........or on facebook :)
