Wrestled all day with a massive bamboo plant and, using a pick axe, fork, spade, shovel and Stanley knife, removed about 95% of its roots from an area of about two square metres. It may only be a battle won, rather than the whole war, but fuck it - they're pernicious fuckers, bamboo. Grrrrrr.

Stanley knife?

 

That bastard gave the Congo to the Belgians.

Actually it's not a Stanley; it's some generic rip off. It's cuts up bamboo roots, though.

I can confirm that this is a manly act. I helped my friends remove bamboo plants and their roots and managed to break 2 shovels with lifetime guarantees on them with manly brawn. Though I'll concede this didn't happen to day.

I built a new shed a couple of weeks ago Grrrrrr.

 

Last night I was moving all the stuff out of the old one and into the new one. GRRRRRRRR or rather laying it all over the garden to see what to dump and what to keep.

I found 1/2 a bottle of Macallan I did not know I had so I drank it and went to bed leaving the back garden covered in junk. GRRRRRRRR

Put water and oil in my car while on my dinner break, and then wiped my hands with an old rag - it gave me a stiffy.

 

 

That's some diet coke break porn right there, for any women watching that through an office window. Did you cradle a new born baby afterwards?

 

You'll be getting offers from RB14 soon to come and be his pit man.

I didn't even know bamboo grew in England. Are their Panda's on the Wirral?

 

Over here you can get root rot, or you could. It was some chemical you pour down on the roots and in 6 hours you can dig em up. Smelled awful.

Wow Paul, you're so much more manly than me (repped). Grrrr.

 

Haha. You massive cunt, Paul. I actually would rep you for that bit of creative abusive of power & position if I had any to give you. You'll be practising your creative budgeting next! Little bit of misappropriation of funds never hurt anyone!

 

Who says teachers can't be fun?

I've used a cold saw to chop aluminum extrusions, lifted a ton of boxes, and driven a forklift today.

 

In the last month, I've done the following work on my car: Changed the sparks, changed the oil, changed the brakes of all 4 wheels, replaced the starter, removed the alternator (then put it back because it wasn't the problem), and done oil changes for three friends.

 

Grrrr.

He's a Texan, his ride is more important than his family (although I think he drives a Jap model)

 

If its a jap one and he is doing that it must be a classic.

You will break before a jap car.

You will probably kill yourself because your car has no charisma.

I live in Texas, but I'm a Californian.

 

Car's a Mitsubishi, I took off the Alternator because I was curious, not because I mistakenly thought it was my problem, the starter went out, which isn't surprising at 80,000 miles, the rest was just regular maintenance as I have to do my inspection at the end of the month.

Last Saturday I roasted a 55 kilo pig on a spit.

 

I know this is cheating as I didn't do it today but on the other hand it was pretty manly.

On Wednesday night I singlehandedly carried home a bag of charcoal from Sainsburys, set light to it on the barbecue and made me and my woman a meal of cooked meat. GRRRR.
