We all fall down

20 February 2006

I blame de mudder. Met her for lunch last week and she told me that pretty much the entire family had a cold last weekend. On Friday I had a bit of a sore throat which developed into a snuffly cold on Sat. and Sun. Thought it had cleared up this morning, but no. I’m still snuffling away. Hopefully annoying the students. :evil: Must remember to get some beechams at lunch time.

While I was home brother #4 played a rugby match and ended up pulling a muscle in his stomach, which was hi-larious as sick people when he tried to laugh or cough. Ever seen Muttley, well, heard him? De brudder sounded just like that. So of course we attempted to make him laugh as much as possible. I also learned that despite being around 20 years of age, brother #4 is still as immature as ever. As he spent at least 10 minutes in a Yes-No war with the sister. She is 9, so has an excuse.

I’ve made the short list for fictional piece, but that site says that everyone who voted should’ve gotten an email to verify their address. As far as I can see I never got one, does that mean my vote didn’t go through?

    A 20-year-old immature guy? Surely you jest.

  2. Fence says:

    Ah yes, but there is immature as in messing about. Which he does, a lot. And there is saying nothing but no for ten minutes.

  3. NineMoons says:

    Immature as in less mature than a nine year old girl, like?
    I hope you have more tales of the doings of the Brothers. They keep us so entertained!
    How's the nevvy?

    I woudn't say less, after all, she was quite willing to continue the debate, despite both of them forgetting what they were yessing and noing until she was defeated by another question from another person.

  5. I didn't get an email either…..hmmm, can you say conspiracy?

  6. NineMoons says:

    I never got one either. I reckon certain people have rigged the bloody thing. FOUL!

  7. Kelly says:

    I got ALL your emails. "Yes, I did. Yes, I did. YES, I did." (JK, me neither.)

  8. Fence says:


    Or maybe no emails were sent out at all. Who knows.

  9. NineMoons says:

    I've decided that oh, let's say… Twenty Major bribed everyone. It's politics man.

  10. Fence says:

    We must set up a tribunal to investigate these terrible affairs.

    And then maybe a tribunal to investigate the orignial tribunal?

  11. NineMoons says:

    Bags the job of judge. Am fed-up being lowly researcher.

    I'm twenty myself… we're all pretty much still kids. Don't blame us for that :) It's the Spirit of the Age :)

  13. Fence says:

    Max somehow I doubt you'd get involved in such a "debate" and mid-way through forget why you were repeating no. But keep on doing it anyway :)

  14. Max Lee says:

    I may have very well done other foolish things! :)

  15. sally says:

    And, you're shocked by that fact?

  16. Carl V. says:

    I haven't thought of Muttley in forever. Loved those cartoons when I was a kiddo! Probably still do today truth be told!

  17. Fence says:

    Foolish things are all well and good Max. People need to be foolish every now and then.

    Sally, which fact? That my brother is turning into Muttley? Not at all :)

    Carl, they are still showing repeats of <cite>Catch the Pigeon</cite> over here. Or at leat, they were fairly recently. Does a year or two count as recent?
