Warning: may contain microbial references

I'm in the first throes of a major snot infestation. I've mobilised the handkerchief collection, stocked up on mandarins, and cancelled all engagements (except for a brief walk this afternoon with Antwo from Sydney to inspect the self-composting toilets in East Brunswick [with which I was favourably impressed, but I'm not sure that the body corporate will be amenable to my suggestion that we rip up the carpark and install pit dunnies]). Meanwhile, two fresh pairs of gentlemen's bloomers made their way onto my balcony today, the first such incident in several months.

Lovely.

Snot good at all - both the impending infestation, and the preponderance of bloomers athwart your balcony! Who could be getting about "au naturel" not knowing where the devil their knickers got to? Perhaps the Operatic Chap Upstairs? "Damn it all Marjorie, lost m' prize Puccinis again!"

Hrm. Yairrs. Quite.

Try liquid echinacea - it works a treat at easing the symptoms and restoring vitality!

You are quite the player these days. Two pairs of bloomers? Impressive.

Meanwhile, my blog has a new web address URL thingee:

Me? Quite the player? Heaven forfend! No. I prefer to think that these free-ranging pantaloons (one pair in racing red, the other a rather unsavoury browny-orange) were a votive offering to the transcendent spirit of the great Birthday Suit ... though why the transcendent spirit of the great Birthday Suit would set up its shrine on my balcony, I'm not sure.

Thanks for your kindums, Snottlesby. Unfortunately I am allergic to echinacea - as I discovered a couple of years ago when I chugged down a couple of echinacea tablets, broke out in hives, betook myself to that great medical authority we call teh intertubes, and found that there've been quite a few cases of echinacea-induced anaphylaxis. Shame the echinacea-vendors don't mention this on their product.

Good lord, a booger evil hath no man known! (and a very loud FEH to "Snottlesby", although a tip o' the trilby for a pun served fresh)

I was rather hoping the knickers came complete with men but I see not.

Lemon tea with grated ginger and organic honey, great for a hacking cough.

I feel pleased and vindicated that my predictions about the return of the falling underwear are coming true...

Now if only my predictions about imminent fame and fortune could work out, everything would be just natty.

alexis said...

Thanks for the tea tip, Jahteh. Hacking coughs seem to have passed me by, but I'm never one to pass up an opportunity for ginger and lemon and honey.

Tim, you have every right to feel vindicated. Good luck with the fame thing. You could try chalking your name all over town until you get arrested?

Others - just in case you were wondering - the nose is clearing wonderfully.

TimT said...

I've tried that. All over the web - it's graffiti for the cyberspace generation. Perhaps thankfully, my idiocy has not met with wide acclaim.

My apologies for not offering any more practical suggestions for the nasal attack. But rug up well tonight - it's cold in them thar Melbourne-town at the moment!

Ain't it! Freezing. I have a hot water bottle for each foot.
