try explaining to your parents why they cant call you until after 8pm on sundays because you've been out all night dj'ing.

"what time did you finish"
"7am"
"what time did you get home"
"11am"

What exactly do they put in them when they ask you if you'd like to give your juice a "boost".

Post by sweetcheeks » Wed Dec 22, 2004 11:39 pm

dear you,

fuck you for not buying me chocolates for christmas. cuntlipses, every single one of ya. i don't want your namby pamby floral porcelain 3-piece tea-brew kit and i don't want to give you this lovely thick box of pink lady truffles that should be floating in my digestive tract, in all honesty I don't want to give you anything at all [because Christmas is the payday of already insanely rich Fruit of the Loom stockholders and i's po', goddamit] but i heard on the work/family/general social circle grapevine that you got me one and now I have to fucking reciprocate else look like a grinch with a beef against 'the man'. besides, if you really knew me and liked me you'd get me 30 fucking ferrero rochers that i can cram into my mouth all at once, bitch, I don't even mind if they're melty, just as long as they're still in the original packaging, which just goes to show how DECENT and LOW-MAINTENANCE and NON-PRECIOUS i'm being about this whole sorry cocoa-free situation! no no, not those jelly jubes that have gotten all gelatinous looking and moist as they sweat in the plastic and the sugar dusting melts and if i touched them my fingers would shine and taste like glycerine, I want the stuff in the festive looking christmas-shaped boxes! with all the metallic foil! fuck you and your half-arsed commercialism, how the fuck can i take you seriously when you don't even die by the sword and there no lindt balls i can stuff myself with like they're expirin tomorrow. "Thanks for that! You shouldn't have! Wow! WOW! A cut-price Christmas decoration from target with the glitter half come off and such a lovely shade of aquamarine!" fuuuuuuuuuuuck you!

love, trish. happy freakin holidays.

there is a list of what is in the 'boosts' on www.boostjuice.com.au. but after reading a recent report on www.choice.com.au about how these powders dont provide any benefits and can actually harm people in some cases, i decided against getting them.

I just like making my own juices and smoothies!

Hmmm. I saw that post. I actually thought you were being serious too.

It's not a matter of not understanding sarcasm, it's a matter of sarcasm usually being too subtle to translate to internet message boards.

Sucks to be you Tash!

My second gripe for today: Calling up head office to see where our pay is, only to be told "oh, thats right, I'll just do it now". Which means it wont be processed until 12 Friday night. The chances of it going through because of weekends/public holidays... slim to none.

When I reply, this isn't fair, our employees need to be paid etc, I am told not to start having an argument with her. First of all, I was calmer than most people would be when they find out theyre not getting paid before christmas, and secondly, what does the stupid bitch expect?.

VERY ANGRY!

NOT TRUE!!!

After Finding Nemo found major box office success, the public demand for Clownfish as pets skyrocketed. The way clownfish (and other exotic fish) are captured, is by using a chemical which temporarily renders the fish unconscious, thus making them easy for divers to bag and return to the surface. However, the chemicals have a largely toxic effect on other plants and many fish, and also kills the rare coral in which the fish are found.

Nemo harmless? I think not! He's a menace.
