Posted:well... when its late at night... like at 04:05 maybe... i know that the milk man has been doing his rounds since 3.30. as a student, its my duty to know when the milk man comes.

just followed him, right on schedule, picked up a couple of pints after he drives out of the street, jump into a couple of allys, and catch him on the next one.

all in a nights work....

Posted:yay!
we can have a gut competition!!! would love to catch up for a spin. although youd better be careful how you say 'cumming to auz' as some ppl may get the wrong idea.... or the right idea depending upon your target audience.
drop us a PM when you know your schedule is. i spin with the glebe crew on thurday, and whenever else i generally feel like it.

funky, im confused are you saying you keep cool by creeping out in the early hours of the morning and stealing the neighbours' milk?

Posted:at the hottest part of the day, find a pool, get in it and refuse to come out until it starts to cool down again. Remember to use sunblock, and be prepared to deal with confused/angry pool owners.

The optimist claims that we are living in the best of all possible worlds.
The pessimist fears this is true.

Always make time to play in the snow.

heat is wonderful and a clear blue sky is the nearest thing to heaven.
but if it does get too hot, swims or showers, liquids (not too cold and with lots of salts in them) and the brilliant too-hot-to-move "siesta" when the sun is at its peak.

oh and lots and lots of ice-cream

Posted:it was 116 the other day! now thats a hot temale still i have seen far worse. like ray says. loose clothes (gotta get the breeze up your leg )no black, tank tops and water. also it helps to kinda zone out and not think of it. dont zone out to much while your drivin though SCREEEEEEECH.

oh ya avoid confrontations people are just plain nasty in the heat i have noticed. everyones ready to flip.


In my hands I hold your smile and in my heart it runs so wild You are the one you are unique I'm so in love you make me weak And the reason that I feel is like a shadow from a light so if you have the chance to be with me be my shadow in the night

If you're not confused, you're not thinking about things hard enough.

Perfect temperature here but I'm presuming you're also on your way to the Nevada desert? It's going to be pretty hot there I reckon. Can't wait!

the majority of the summer it has been around like 103 here in kansas. and everyday i have been wearing baggy jeans and a black t-shirt and i have never felt more comfortable.

or i guess i am just proving dentrassi right about being a teenager and dressing like that all the time.
