I have created a sleuth miracle!


Go ahead and try, but this thread is about anything and nothing, all at the the same time!

This is the place where Al can talk about world domination, Crunch can worship David Hasselhoff, SS can try and find even more complicated questions for his pub quizzes, Nikkie can advertise for Tim Tams, cfm can troll for more Sharpie victims, JR can beg for the chance to win Bobo back, and bedazzling can be a way of life!

So go off, rant and rave, talk about anything, i don't care, I just wanted to see my avatar on the page (when its actually me anyways)

So go ahead, I dare you all to try and hijack me :)

I was 14 when I'd heard the words that would change my life forever.
The guy's name was John, he wore this cream jersey.. with what I always thought was a cable knit pattern. He had blond-ish hair that I think was curly-shaggish and when he wanted our attention, he'd go silent and look down at his hands.
"Hey, everyone, John's looking at his hands." And with that we'd all settle down instantly. No mean feat for a young drama class fill of energy.
He had written the words on the board but while I remember them clear as day, I can't remember if it was a white or black board.

What I do remember, was the class room lacking a door, it was in the new block of a new school.
But that was no worry for us, we just used what I'd later find out was the magic "as if" pioneered by a Russian by the name of Stanislavky-( we just thought we were using our imaginations and thought we were acting) t0 build one. Later that day, Paddy came bounding in through the door. Paddy was one who bounded everywhere despite appearing quite centred.
"Paddy!" "Hey! You broke the door!" "Ow, that has to hurt!" "Paddy, are you ok?"
Quickly realising that he'd actually bounded through a "door" , Paddy rubbed his head, "took" some "aspirin" and put the door back. Years later this incident was to get me an "A", in my Thea 211 Truth and Representation paper on Stan and his magic "as if."

We came into the class one day after lunch and on the board, John had written,

"Those who say 'no' are awarded by the safety they attain. Thos who say 'yes' are the adventures they have."

This was a quote from Keith Johnson's book, Impro. The book that basically invented Theatre Sports which lead to Whose Line is it Anyway?

I instantly choose then that I would be a 'yes' sayer. That I would have adventures and *&^% any safety. I was going to live my life and not just survive it.

Years went by as they do. I got a job which meant working late Sunday night which meant getting up on Monday morning for school was a bit of a chore.

We lived 10km out of town and the school bus would pick us up about 5 to 8. Often, I didn't roll out of bed until 1/4 to and being that the bus stop was at the end of our 1km road/driveway, I often missed it.

That wasn't much of a worry to me, I'd just hitch to school asking that if a neighbour picked me up they didn't tell Mum.

They say the first cut is always the deepest, at least Cat Stevens does anyhow. Often the first anything is kind of difficult or akward or harder. But once you've done something once, each time after is so much easier until it becomes no big deal or just a habit. Maybe why you should never have the first ciggarette or first joint. But hey, where's the fun in that?

That pretty much started my hitching career. After all, if I could do 10km regulary, why not 100km?

Also, my sister and quite a few old school friends lived 2 hours away in the city since we'd shifted to this pokey little town and as my working funds didn't quite cover regular travel PLUS expenses there and back, I'd hitch.

Hitching is quite fun at times and extremly boring at others. While I never waited more than five minutes, you'd sometimes be picked up by boring, old couples who liked talking about... actually I don't remember what they talked about, boring as it was.

Anyhow, life once again went on, I left school, went to University, graduated, hiched now and then to Music Festivals or too my parents house when I had the time, got a job.

In the meantime, one of best friend's shifted to the West Coast and kept asking me to visit sometime. So, after a year or so, I decided it was about bloody time I saw her and the West Coast so made plans.

A man walked into a supermarket with his zipper down. A lady cashier
walked up to him and said, "Your barracks door is open." Not a phrase that
men normally use, he went on his way looking a bit puzzled.

When he was about done shopping, a man came up and said, "Your fly
is open."

He zipped up and finished his shopping. At the checkout, he
intentionally got in the line where the lady was that told him about his
"barracks door." He was planning to have a little fun with her, so when he
reached the counter he said, "When you saw my barracks door open, did you
see a Marine standing in there at attention?"

The lady (naturally smarter than the man) thought for a moment and
said "No, no I didn't. All I saw was a disabled veteran sitting on a couple
of old duffel bags.

uggh bicmacs. i had one earlier on and really wish i hadn't :)

One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead men came out to fight,
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew their swords and shot each other.
