... passed me. Most people would reply and we'd exchange a few words. One girl told me she loved my name.....because it was her name too. Even though towards the end of the shift, my feet were burning in agony from being tired stood on them all day, despite feeling like I'm coming down with yet another cold and despite being all hot and sweaty from scrubbing poo off the floor in a humid swimming pool environment I still smiled sweetly at everyone. ...

Karly Bungy Jumps

A travel blog entry by petermbeaumont


... is world famous and has a cult following. The burgers are described as gourmet and they are the size of dinner plates.

A travel blog entry by erotergum


... came on at the end and we were country dancing to "what shall we do with the drunken sailor" and we were literally the last ones on the dance floor. How embarrassing really! As you can probably sympathise today was a bit of a write-off. But it's also my Grandad's birthday, he's 81 and is the wittiest, wealthiest and wisest man I know. His legs may not carry him as fast as they used to but his quick tongue makes up for his slower pace. He may say the same old jokes ...
