I could never throw my knickers at you

Well Tuesday afternoon I finally got around to washing my car. It took me 3 1/2 hours, and 3 buckets of car wash. (Which is a lot)

I learned two things:

  • My car is white
  • My phone rocks

Not that anybody has really noticed. I was expecting lots of smart-arse comments (ie "Wow, I didn't know your car was white Steve") from Darryl and/or Lauren.

I dropped in at home this morning to change my shirt (the other one had a stain on it that I didn't see before); Mum said to me "Dad asked me last night if I had a chat with you about your attitude".

My immediate response:
"My attitude? I have an attitude? If anyone has an attitude, its Dad."

My Dad isn't my favourite person at this point in time. Allow me to list a few of his most annoying traits:

  • Acts like a bully
  • Resents change, in all forms
  • His "rituals" - morning, evening
  • The smells associated with his rituals
  • Tries not to be sexist but fails miserably

I was going to put an example here but decided not to.

And I don't come from Wales. I have most of the new Orbital album; it's featured this week on that J thing, and it's pretty groovy. =]

Apparently recent Mozillas have been rocking ... don't have a Windows machine to test that, and I can't be arsed downloading the latest build just now. Damn limits.

Great! Now you can come around and wash mine! :) I don't have a hose or any actual car wash stuff, but I'm sure you'll manage :)

Your dad is okay, he means well. Just think about it like this ... it could be worse, you could have mine ;)

Or mine. Never leave anything out in the open when my dad's around it, if you do, it'll have a label or a tag on it within the next 10 minutes.

You forget he has several faces - one for Mum, one for me and my brother, and one for everyone else.

When (not if, WHEN) my Mum leaves him I could quite easily see him becoming just as bad as your Dad, if not worse. (Okay, I doubt he'd stoop to your Dad's level but we all have to agree there aren't many that would)

Let me put my opinion of my Dad on a scale you can recognise: my opinion of him is only slightly higher than that of Dale.

He's very quickly turned from being an ok guy to a bitter old man who is too stubborn to change his ways, that and he is the only person I know who can make the usually fragrant smell of soap stink. I can't stand the smell anymore. He won't use a bodywash. And if he walks past you after having a shower you can still smell it five minutes after he is gone. It could best be described as an overpowering stink.

That's only because someone stole them.
