A welcome visitor...

We have my cousin and her best friend staying with me at the moment, so I'll be a little slack on the blog front over the next few days.  We'll be spending the days sightseeing, swimming and kayaking and the nights drinking... and drinking.  I'm sure I'll have some interesting tales to share come Monday!

Micko took Tuesday off work to put the roof on the pergola - the colorbond steel arrived Monday and you can't have it sitting around where it's moist (eww that word!) as it will likely start to rust.  Also, he wanted to get it done before Genna and Eliza arrived.
Here is the main man working hard on the roofing...

Took the poor bastard 11 hours!  He drank water like a motherfucker (although I'm not quite sure how much water a motherfucker drinks?  It's probably not a great deal more than your regular Joe)

Micko!  Micko!  He's our man... If he can't do it, no one can!
The finished product... with a glimpse of my Mosaic masterpiece!

Micko was rooo-ted!  Even though he drank a shitload of water, he started to cramp.  Working for 11 hours in the heat (fully clothed so he didn't get burnt) really took it out of him.  Where's the bloody Saltine when you need it? 

He hit the sack around 9pm and had a real prick of a sleep... constantly waking from his muscles cramping up.  Around 3am, I awoke startled... Micko said, really loudly, 'What was that? Did you hear that?'.  I hadn't heard anything but Micko's fucking booming voice waking me up!  'It was glass smashing... twice!'  I was like, 'Oh Faaaark!  I hope someone isn't breaking into my office, or smashed the window of Micko's car, or have smashed a downstairs window to come in and tie us up with rope to torture then rape us then dispose of our bodies in the rainforest before inhabiting our house and no one would know!  (mainly cause no one here knows us!)'.

Micko got up to investigate, while I lay prefusely sweating and shaking in bed.  Then he yells out.. 'Karls!  Come here!  Check this out!'... I'm thinking 'Fucking NO WAY!  What did he find... a young girl wandering around with a smashed stubby, trying to stubby anyone in the street?

I dragged my saggy tits out of bed and discovered Micko on the deck with the light on... We had a visitor on the deck...
A beautiful Diamond Carpet Python!
I grew up with snakes and lizards around... A friend of mine kept a carpet python as a pet and it was always around the house when we played.  We also had a few Turtles (not unusual)...
        Blue Tongues...                         

                                                                    & Bearded Dragons...

all as pets during my childhood.. so I'm no stranger to all things reptilian and I love them!  In fact, when we were toying around with idea of getting a pet, we'd considered another reptile but changed our mind and got Puppalicious Billby instead.

Now you've discovered another element that makes me a fucken weirdo!  Can't hide the truth for too long, right?  Besides the lizard thing was great for us... I have no fear of anything with scales - mainly because I understand how they work - and my brother is in the final stages of finishing his PHD (which centres around reptiles and bushfire).  My folks would try to develop any keen interests we had... and it worked! 

Catch ya'll later... when I'll have tales of the mayhem and madness Gen and Lize inflict!

This is my first time visiting your blog but I am in love with your blog and honesty. thanks for stopping by my blog and I will surely be back to visit more. Gorgeous Pics!!!!

Karls - I really hope you are ok and not being strangled by the freaking python. I know you say you are used to these things and animals with blue tongues but now I fear for you friend, amidst all these reptilian terrors. You see, earthworms scare me. so do chihuahuas.

so this seems very brave to me. please drink a lot with your cousin (but not enough to impair you around big nasty ass pythons).

What. the hell. is that?

It's huge! What if it eats your dog??

kys said...

OMG! I would be fa-reeking out if I found a python anywhere near my house. You are obviously much more worldly and pragmatic than I am.

Amy said...

No Fucking way!!! I can't believe that ginormous snake was in your back yard!!!

I don't have a fear of snakes, but that big guy may have startled me a bit!

Love the mosaic table! Have fun with your cousin! Can't wait to hear of your debauchery;)

Martinis or Diaper Genies? said...

Ok i'm down with the snakes maybe. But not rats.
Actually I'm not sure.

KLaw said...

EEK! If I saw those things in real life, I might shit my pants. I'm just sayin. Better you than me!

Summer {Bisfor...} said...

are you kidding me! don't answer that. jesum peets.

Cathy said...

I almost passed out when I saw the snake picture. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!! That thing was at your house?! I would die.

Adorably Distracted... said...

UGH! I would have FREAKED!!!! that thing is HUGE! i think hubs would have freaked too!! lol were babies like that!

Kellyansapansa said...

Wow - what an amazing visitor to have in the middle of the night! Did he at least bring a bottle of wine with him?

Lucy said...

Oh that is awesome! Mind you I would have been shocked at first but then had to resist the urge to go over to it! It is huge though! Do you live in an area where that is the norm cause to me having such a huge snake randomly pop in seems so bizarre to me!

Princess Andy said...


you have a rainforest?

all i have is cow fields.

and those little oil drilling things here and there.

but no reptiles.



bananas. said...

"like a motherfucker"...HAHAHA!!!

i say that all the time but never really thought about it. basically a motherfucker does everything 10 fold, ay?

i'm okay with reptiles and such. that's a big ass snake but it's gorgeous! i actually prefer them big like that as long as they want to play nice...and no hugs.

Nicky said...

I am slowly backing away from your blog now.

Snakes scare me
Lizards = awesome
But yeah, snakes EEEEK!

Nicky said...

The roof looks awesome!

Little Ms J said...

I'm sorry, but I would have to move! I'd be worried every time I turned around or let my dogs out!

Sharnanigans said...

wakey wakey hands off snakey!

WhisperingWriter said...

I'd be freaking out over the snake. I'd probably be running around in circles screaming at the top of my lungs.
