Gulliver Has Landed ...

    In Australia. He'll need intensive care to help him deal him with his adiction issues. The worst (I'm told) are his incessant attempts to bikini watch. It's potentially illegal I imagine and I hope he gets it under control.

    I'm not sure what he'll be doing in the next few days but I'm hoping he gets some Goat Riding in. The new, cheaper alternitive to horse riding. For small bears.

    If you're on the same continent, or close-ish, please let me know if you'd like to have a very messed up bear to stay. I'm sure he'll soon need to move one smile

    Glad he made it to his next destination!! I still want him when he gets to the states. Sorry if my changing accounts made a mess with that?

    He's suffering from a bit of jet lag. Tomorrow he's going to find out what a bit of farm life is like.

    The kangaroos and wallabies are a little shy, but the goat, sheep and chickens love the camera.

    @ Pacal ... it's good to broaden ones' knowledge wink

    @ Jane me too. I'm assuming he hasn't been interfered with on this occasion. Poor Gulliver hmm

    Red no, it's not a problem. Though I'm hoping TwoHeads Eric shows his mush and has the bear for a few days. And one or two others that are nearer to Darkside.

    Darkside, apparently he likes wine. Coffee and cigarettes. And don't let him near your pc. Best to feed him peanut butter. Sticky paws are sure to keep him busy.

    Oh ... and don't wear a bikini and let him see you in it. There'll be pictures no doubt wink

    I don't think they wear bikinis in Oz do they? Fair dinkum, that's for whingeing poms only.......

    Sorry about all the addictions - he just wanted to be like me. Maybe a few days sheep shagging or whatever it is Darkside has arranged for him to ride will lessen the cravings. I would think 10 days of cold turkey in transit helped as well. smile

      I can well imagine why he wanted to be you Mark. All the time he's spent in my bed didn't do a thing for him. Seems a few days with you and well ... you know wink

      I respectfully submit that you, Mark, could be an alter ego for most of us here. As for Darkside's present condition and status, I'm not only merely jealous, I'm really quite sincerely jealous. (Spin from the Wizard of Oz.)

      I don't suppose munchkins and lilliputians mix very well, do they?

        Oh crap!

        Now I am worried that I might actually be some one's alter ego. I need  to go do some work - make sure I am me.

        I'll be back.

        or not................

          Not to worry. I'm pretty sure we're all psychotic here, and we will never know if you are me and I am you, or he is she or....

          Well, you get my drift, I assume....

    I wish I were Gulliver (not because I want to be looking at bikinis, by any means, but because we, way up here in New England, USA, won't be having any bikini-weather temperatures for a good long time now.  hmm  Down into the deep, dark, depths of cold Winter we head.....  mad

        lol  Oops - thanks for reminding me.  It's actually a beautiful, beautiful, day here - so who needs beach weather...    (That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.)  smile

    Well we are glad that he made it through Customs without a scratch. lolololo big_smile

      AEvans I'm assuming that antipodean customs chaps are a little adverse to anal probing. Of any kind. Unlike the french smile

      And Mark - check behind the glasses and down the sides of your socks. If you're not 'you', the other 'you' will be more evident. Unless the other you doesn't wear socks and glasses.

    Cool... Good to know that the bear got to OZ...
    Hopefully his stitching is still stitched; but you never know with the 'mounting' security at Ozie airports! 
    This trip must be devastating for him!
    When you Ockers have corrupted him some more... send him to Bumble Town NZ and I'm taking him Fishing. lol

      Email the DarkOne. He gets to choose where Gulliver goes next. That was the agreement. The bear got to travel at the benevolence of others. He agreed. He thinks it's an especially good idea after Bikini Watch hmm

        I think you'll find that he has several to visit in OZ first: Or were you just getting his passport stamped?

        Can't go Downunder without visiting NZ.. Besides he is booked to lead a Haka in Rotorua! It took alot of convincing to ensure he wouldn't end up in a pot there. smile

          frogdroppingposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          No, he can't. I should email my family in NZ and have them put him up. But they probably do dumb stuff after a few pints. It's a Yorkshireman thing. I think. Or maybe it's just a general 'how to act dumb when drunk' thing.

          And my family are from Rotorua. Or at least migrated there. My cousins had the rugby haka as their uni thingy.

      I'll be hitting up a few other Aussies to see the sights and we'll figure out an itinerary. But we'll make sure that after Australia (and Tasmania) that the next country is New Zealand. And you can be the first stop.

    If possible I'd like him to be here (in Canada) the week of October 9th to 17th for Oktoberfest. If not, we can make it next year smile
