-Moved house. Ouch. But I got to drive a truck! Echo-Charlie-Rubber Ducky!
-Painted 90% the interior of a 3-bedroom house in 6 days (the psychological scars will last a lifetime)

(Speaking of Gastro, I once asked a girl out on a date but she told me no, she was in bed with Gastro. I gave up on her straight away. I mean, how could I compete with the leader of Cuba)

-Painted 10% the interior of a 3-bedroom house

-Wondered by so many bots/trawlers/spammers and enigmatic anoymous commenters are leaving comments on my little blog.

Oh, and that was all before lunchtime! I think I need a lie down.

Welcome back brother. Oh and stay away from those birth videos they're more perverse than anything Quentin Tarantino could have ever dreamed of.
