If you can remember...

A clever person once said "if you can remember the sixties, you weren't really there".

As someone whose formative years were in the - much less fashionable - eighties, I've often wondered what our equivalent saying might be.

I've come up with a few alternatives:

"If you can remember the eighties, I'm sorry"

"If you can remember the eighties, that's unfortunate"

"If you can remember the eighties, don't"


"If you can remember the eighties, it may pay to drink 'til you forget them"


...feel free to add your own... if you can remember the eighties that is.

i'm not feeling clever enough at this hour to add one but i'm with you, that decade is one which should be forgotten.
i'm amused at the reaction of the younger set when i say the 80's is embarrassing to remember, asking me "but why?"
i think you had to be there to understand.

I saw a sign in a jeans shop, who's market is the younger generation, with a sign saying "Come back 1986, all is forgiven!"

As none of the customers would have been born in 1986, it occurred to me:

"If you remember the eighties, you wouldn't want to be there!"

 
At 12:42 pm, Blogger cotard said...

I like that one too!

And what gives them the right to forgive 1986! I wasn't invited to the meeting where that decision was made...

The 80's were horrid!! Although I loved them at the time...

but let's see, If you remember the 80's you'll remember that legs stay warm just fine without legwarmers!
or alternately...

tight leggings, flouncy bubble skirts and big bows everywhere flatter only the tiniest people...the rest of us are SOL!

if you enjoy the idea of Cotard's Syndrome then heres something a little more criptic: BIID (Body Integrity Identity Disorder)is an illness where a person believes that the only way they can lead a normal life is by cutting off one of their limbs. So they will go to great lengths to amputate or have one of their appendages amputated. CHEERS!

First off all I would like to thank you for that great post. It's very interesting to read your posts. As I can see, a lot of people here knows much about ED treatment maybe they can help me. For a log time I can't decide what is better: to buy viagra, to buy cialis or levitra? I found this online pharmacy no prescription to buy all this things, so can somebody help me to make a decision? IMHO I should buy viagra

The classic Monogram Canvas has been louis vuitton outlet trademark design since it was first introduced in 1896.

while this is not an 80s comment,
(however, i DO remember the 80s and wax poetically about them all. the. time.)(just ask my kids)...
i did want to say this...
i happened across this comment that you left on my blog (i'm not sure when) but it must have been awhile ago

"Do you remember writing this:

"hmmmm...i did not even
want a blog...and now i have one
just so that i could tell my top 5..."

I was just trawling my archives when I came across this comment. I followed the link to see if you had actually posted anything on your blog, only to find you have three!

Anyway, thought I'd say hi and remind you of your bloggy beginnings."

and I wanted to say that i do indeed remember that this is exactly how i started blogging...in april 2005...in order to leave a comment on your page. :)

I believe it had to do with a list...and maybe something to do with Canada. :)

it's kind of funny, really...

If yes, then flowers may be in order, and a little note to apologise.

Actually, probably a good idea anyway.

I don't get it...

Just when I thought I was "dog's gift" to women (or however that saying goes), my romantic life re-implodes... bringing it back to a more familiar and comfortable status.

The thing that I don't get is that "it's got nothing to do with you" (meaning me), but "I've just got some stuff going on at the moment".



"Stuff" is my word!



You're not allowed to have "stuff" going on!

You can have issues, you can just not be "into me", you can be reconsidering your own sexuality, you can even be considering becoming a nun... but your not allowed to have "stuff" going on!

Get your own bullshit excuse!

Ah well, back to the drawing board...



P.S. Does anyone care?

10 Comments:

At 6:37 am, Blogger Zézette said...

Maybe the "stuff" is reading about themselves online, rated (like movies) in a list of other women? Just a thought. But if I'd stumbled on someone's blog and found myself in a list like that I don't think I'd even have bothered to buffer your feelings with the "stuff" excuse. Sorry, but I think it serves you right.

But we can still be friends, right? ;)

I think you were pretty self depreciating already no need to feel too bad. I think we've all at some stage gotten a buzz out of getting attention from more than one person. When it rains it pours, when there is no rain, there's drought. :) I've felt like that at times.

I'm not surprised, I don't feel bad for you. I certainly don't care. I'm just compelled to tell you that from the looks of it (and your profile) you're fucking jerk. And Cotards?, I doubt you know the half of it. People like you are what make it difficult for just about everyone else.

It is definitely easier to find out informative tidbits on the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra by inserting the keyword “Viagra” in the Google search tool bar. You can also log into theResources section of the website http://www.buy-viagra-with-us.com, and obtain comprehensive Viagra information.

'To do' lists suck

Okay, so I didn't get around to doing all of the posts on my 'to do' list. I still might have a crack at the haka one, I think I had some good stuff to say about it.

In the meantime here are some gratuitous pet pics.

All taken today at the Dog Beach in South Freo.

The picture quality sucks 'cause they were taken on my phone. The quality of the day on the other hand was outstanding. It's hard to believe that it's still winter here.

Give me a dog beach over a people beach any day...

Things to do...

Work has been mental lately, so blogging has suffered.

It's not that there haven't been things that I've wanted to write about... it's just finding the spare twenty minutes or so to do it.

So consider this a 'things to do list'.

The 5 posts that I will attempt to 'bang out' over the next couple of days:

1) The post about the unexpected (but very welcome) increase in activity in my romantic life. And how it involves a number of girls whose names end in 'y'.

2) The post that explores the importance of New Zealand's haka (both versions) in the wake of the 'throat-slitting controversy' of last week, and why Australia needs something similar.

3) The obligatory post that bemoans the fact that Johnny isn't going away any time soon.

4) The post that talks of my love - and the importance of - commercial radio, with RTR having its 'Radiothon' in a couple of weeks.

5) And I'll try and think up a good Top 5 list, I haven't done one of them for a while...

Where did the weekend go?

I lost a few hours on the weekend courtesy of this post from Jessie from 'across the ditch'.

I'm a sucker for anything that involves music and my (admittedly anal) tendencies for lists, categories, comparisons, collections and the like. As a result I've spent the better part of my weekend at last.fm.

It takes note of what you listen to and makes all sorts of wonderful lists and recommendations, puts you in touch with those of similar tastes etc etc. It's a very smart music thing-a-me-bob. It also makes you listen to more music (which is not a bad thing) and steals hours from your weekend (which is a bad thing).

That said, I did manage to get out on Friday with Kim (who's living back in Perth - Yay!). We went and saw Freya Hanly at Kulcha. I've seen Freya many times, but Friday was very special. She played a set in two halves, the first half backed by a string quartet and the second by an all-acoustic band (guitar, double-bass and bongoes). She trotted out a swag of new material as well as some older stuff that doesn't usually get played at her live shows. It was all awesome.

Among the many highlights for me were Song For Amy (which left Kim a bit weepy and can be heard at her website), Feel This and Stay. Another highlight was seeing Freya's dad bursting with pride as he watched his daughter do her thing.

Freya's hitting the recording studio shortly and I can't wait to hear the results.

**EDIT** - Check out the funky new iPod thingy in my sidebar. It's courtesy of last.fm and means I will no longer be doing a "Listening to:" thingy at the end of my posts. Man, I love last.fm. Go there now and check it out for yourself.

Kids say the darndest things



We're racist, we're sexist, we're homophobic




No, these aren't the ravings of a neo-nazi-styled-lynch-mob. They are in fact the chantings of our very own Young Liberals.

Check out the footage if you find it hard to believe.


These fucktards can only remember one Prime Minister.

They have grown up under John Howard.

The same John Howard who continues to govern in an over-paternalistic manner.

The same John Howard who continues to peddle 'fear of foreigners' through 'children overboard' and his anti-terror legislation.

The same John Howard who has virtually killed off indigenous affairs as a political issue.

The same John Howard who has refused to allow the recognition of the rights of same sex couples.

Is it any wonder that they are behaving this way?


I'm angry.

In my experience, we coold all use a lesson in tolerance and diversity. Things like this our pretty simple. Let me show you example

1. What is your favourite country on earthe?

2. Are there certain jobs (policeman, world leeder, mother, football (soccer four American's) player, etc) that men do better and other jobs that women do better, ON AVERAGE?

3. in your life, is homosexuality equal to heterosexuality? That is, our you just as likely too have a partner of same sex as one of opposite sex?

Do NOT READ BELOW THIS LINE TILL YOU HALF ANSWERED ALL QUESTIONS
-----------------------------

Answer key


1. If you answer a country that speaks the same langage as yours, sorry you ARE a Rascist

2. if you answer yes, sorry you ARE a sexist

3. if you answer yes, sorry you ARE a HOMOEPHOBE


I wood be surprise if not a few of yout at least one of rascist, sexist, or homoephoebic.

correction:

for number 3, if you answer NO then you are a homoephobe, if you answer yes you're not.

Although with all of that double-talk, excuse-making and blame-shifting, young James would make an excellent Liberal leader.

I think he's trying to say that the Young Liberals were chanting that stuff because 'the left' made them... us lefties can be so nasty.

 
At 12:55 pm, Blogger Zézette said...

I actually thought this meant that you're bisexual, rather than a "HOMOEPHOBE" [sic].

just as likely too have

... a few convincing arguments for that old commie chestnut: free education for all.

 
At 1:20 pm, Blogger cotard said...

I think that was the only argument that was clearly made... I'm still trying to figure out the point of that whole '3 question quiz' thing.

I'm thinking that the commenter is: confusing ethnocentrism with racism, stating that all heterosexuals are homophobic and indicating that; holding any sort of opinion on vocational suitability according to gender is sexist.

...my brain hurts.

 
At 2:23 pm, Blogger Zézette said...

Ha ha! Yes, my brain needs a band-aid, too. (Or is that "banned ayd"?)

Apparently to consider women better suited to being mothers is sexist. Well, y'know, I try to keep an open mind about these things, but....

How immature

A brief exchange at work last night:


Co-worker:
I think I might suffer from immature ejaculation.

Me:
Ummm... don't you mean premature ejaculation?

Co-worker:
No. When I blow my load I giggle and squeal like a teenage girl.


I guess I walked straight into that one...

Premature ejaculation was ruining my sex life but Viagra gave me the necessary confidence. After 6 months, the problem has gone and I am far more relaxed. Probably the best thing about these pills is that their effect is felt soon and now after taking the pill every day for 6 months my sexual performance has gone up and my wife is extremely excited about the progress. THANK YOU http://www.buy-viagra-with-us.com/ "!

...pants on fire

So Johnny's been: telling porkies / breaking promises / reneging on deals.

It's front page news.

Why?

It's not like he hasn't done this sort of thing before.

I'm with Rex on this one; 'The Smirk' has got to find the nads to call him on it.

The sad part is that Beazley will be incapable of gaining any political mileage out of this episode at all.

Gillard, on the other hand, would have a field day with it.

I think it's time that both teams changed their aging and incompetent captains.

Randomness

The return of the bulleted post:

  • You can buy vanilla essence, why can't you buy bacon essence? Bacon is the best flavour known to man (well - this man anyway), I'm sure I'd find uses for it.
  • How come 'freshly cooked toast' scented insence sticks haven't been invented? Is there a more homely, comforting aroma? I think not. Sandalwood schmandalwood, give me toast!
  • I want a t-shirt that reads: "Warning: May contain traces of nuts".
  • Apparently I did a bit of sleepwalking last night. Witnesses saw me move a bowl and bang on a wooden chest before returning to the couch and a more orthodox method of slumber. I don't think I've ever sleepwalked in the past.

Whine of the week

When did 'sweet chilli' become the default chilli sauce?

Did I miss the memo?

When I ask for chilli sauce I expect something with a bit of 'heat' in it. Instead I get some sweet stuff that apparently makes any meal a 'Thai' meal.

I shouldn't have to say "not sweet chilli" when I ask for chilli sauce on my burger, pizza, kebab etc.

It annoys me no end.

Am I alone here?

The image “http://cookery.newarchaeology.com/chilli.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Sweet chilli sauce is to real chilli as tomato sauce is to real tomato.

And it tastes like a soft drink flavour Coke decided not to market to me.

I saw that Pink Floyd special too - I'm going to go buy one of the CDs from that era now.

 
At 4:47 pm, Blogger Clueless said...

Try asking for chilli flakes instead that's what I do or for them to add more chilli to the dish, except sometimes then they get mean and add too much to see your reaction.

i'm with ya kid...i hate the sweet!

Trident brand Sweet Chilli Sauce seems to be fine. It's fairly solid stuff, looks like pulverised chilli (including whole seeds) but claims to be "Authentic Thai" in a little badge on its face.

It's hot enough that I'm the only family member who'll touch it, here. Ingredients are: sugar, water, pickled red chilli (16%), distilled vinegar, garlic, salt, stabiliser (xanthan gum).

Made by Mannassen Foods from Oz, Hutchinsons from NZ, "Made in Thailand from local and imported ingredients". The glass bottle I'm reading from is 730ml, acquired from an IGA supermarket here in Wanneroo.

A long time ago, I had some Mexican in Subiaco (the restaurant closed some years ago) and ordered the food hot. When it showed up very mundane, I asked for some hot chilli sauce, which they (UWA student working as waitress) brought in a little ceramic bowl. I tasted it, then used my plastic straw to drink it (wasn't so hot). The waitress blanched and shuddered. (-:

Sleepy review

So tired.

Working nights and watching football 'til sunrise makes for a zombie-like Cotard.

Bad news for Australia last night, they're out of the World Cup.

Good news for Italy though.

In Fabio Grosso, they have uncovered a man with the sort talent not seen since the days of Klaus Dibiasi.

Things that make you stop and think

For quite a while now, I've been using Bloglines to keep track of my favourite blogs, news stories, sports stories etc. It's such a time saver.

One of the features of Bloglines is the 'Quotes of the Day' section. While I don't check it everyday, I do on the odd occasion. Every now and then I see a quote that makes me stop and think.

Today was one of those days:

"We don't know one millionth of one percent about anything"
-Thomas Edison


It definately made me stop and think.

It made me think:

Speak for yourself Tom, ya' dumb cunt!

Harsh, but fair.
(Yes... I've resorted to swearing at dead people for a cheap laugh)

In your face history

The Socceroos live to fight another day in Germany. The USA do not.

The brilliant Jon Stewart tries to fathom the whole situation here (thanks Norm).

It's worth checking the link, and downloading Quicktime7 if required.

But if all that's too hard, here is some of the text, in which Jon eloquently compares our two nations:

"Australia - the drunken us. It'd be like if our country got out of a bar at 4am, drove into a tree and left their car. That's Australia."

He knows us all too well...

WooHoo!

I think I may have mentioned before that I'm a little bit addicted to internet poker.

Well I just WON my first tournament!















That's me with the '1' next to my name (click to enlarge).

$270US for a $5.50US outlay, not a bad morning's work.

Am I excited? Much!

I even jumped out of bed and did a little poker dance when I won.*

For those who care, I won with an Ace high flush in hearts.


Watching: England v Sweden

*Yes, I play in bed... because... well, because I can.

NOT someone to dare to strip poker *chuckling* I think I'm glad I don't have a home pooter

Dare I ask- how long you played prior to the win - I mean all the times you had played, and in that time, how much was lost? ..

 
At 11:38 pm, Blogger cotard said...

How pessimistic of you Wendy.

Are you implying that I have a gambling problem?

...I have been playing for a year or so, and I can assure you that I have received more cheques in the post than I have made deposits on my credit card.

I'm still a bit scared of the high stakes stuff, but I'm happy winning my $30 here and $50 there.

 
At 6:36 pm, Blogger miss wendy said...

just asking.... gambling is actually a recreational activity - so, not a method of making money .. that is, you usually lose more than you make.
Not so sure about cards but that is certainly the way it goes with machines -
Gaming stats- the losses are stated by the Australian Productivity Commission in 2002 estimated it at $14 Billion pa, or an average of $1000 per adult. Problem Gamblers contribute approximately one third of this figure.

Gambling artefacts have been recovered from China (2300 BC).
A set of ivory dice was recovered from Thebes dating from 1500 BC.
King Henry VIII tried to outlaw it among his soldiers, various governments since have tried to regulate, with varying degrees of success.
Playing cards were brought into Europe by the Marmelukes, followers of Islam.

Mandy just wants to be happy

Amanda Vanstone speaking about proposed changes to migration laws:

"This is not so much a bill to keep the Indonesians happy, it's a bill to make us happy"

Just who are the "us" in that sentence Mandy?

If you think you are speaking for all Australians; you'd be wrong.

If you think you are speaking for all of your Liberal colleagues; you'd be wrong.

Have you given any thought to the happiness of the innocent children who are going to end up in detention as a result of this 'happy' little bill of yours?

Hi,
with regards to the cotard syndrome's comment at the top of the page, No it isn't cool i'm afraid. My wife is a psychiatrist and she sees people really troubled by it.
You might never know what its like.
It would be kind of you to rephrase the comment particularly by removing the "how cool is that" bit, not for Political correctness, but out of sensitivity to those who's lives are hell because of it.
thank you

I went to an online pharmacy a month ago to Buy Lipitor
, Lipitor (Atorvastatin) is an oral drug that lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood.
Hydrocodone Online
is one of the most commonly abused prescription pain medications today. One of the most widely prescribed medications, Cheap Vicodin
and its related medications, loricet, loritab percodan, and oxycontin are opioid-based pain medications. Cheap Hydrocodone
is a derivative of opium, which is also used to manufacture heroin. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction become deeply depressed, and their thinking, attention, and judgement become impaired. Their thoughts dwell on the next high, although they tell themselves they are still taking Vicodin for pain or to avoid the withdrawal symptoms. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction often truly feel physical pain, but it is psychologically produced.
