    this has never happened to me before but my mum sent me a pair of brookes pure connect 2 running shoes for christmas....

    every other time that she has sent anything over the past ten years they have just arrived

    this time i had an import duty note and had to go down to the post office to collect them and pay a tax of 1200 baht

    i was seething....i often seethe when i perceive an injustice

    i tried to be all nice at first and ended up chucking the money at her when i realised that it was either pay or send the shoes back



    i didn't do well

    they're about 60-70, so 25 tax is a massive rip off

    don't think so, but you can't buy them here


    i love brookes trainers...feel some brand loyalty towards them

    they are really nice though
    wore my last pair into the ground and these ones are about half the weight....like running on air

    they guesstimated the cost at 3000 baht

    i told her to send them back as my mum was coming in january and could just bring them over for free

    she said they could do that, but they might take up to 6 weeks to arrive back home
    i got pissy as all shit and could tell that the lady hated me quite a lot

    i won't have anything else sent in future

    btw nick

    even pencils are a ballsache
    The pedantry wasn't intentional - it comes naturally.

    As for pencils, not at that age. My lad had to make do with crayons (which are a bastard to remove from watered down emulsion paint.

    I won't bother next time.

    Hours of choosing, buying and wrapping elicited a mere 6 billiseconds of interest.

    No, they're fancy guppies and a few mollies and such, no aggressive fish in there that I can see.

    wtf?

    shrimps are another good idea.... and snails, they help keep the tank clean
    No, they'll take over the tank they breed too fast and eat everything not just algae and waste, get them a Plecostomus or Chinese algae eater.. The fish will eat your shrimp and the crabs will eat even the live, healthy fish, they slowly eat off their fins while they sleep until they can't swim and then eat them eventually, snails just take over and eat all the vegetation and overpopulate the tank.





    Probably a couple of the Chinese rascals as they're pretty small and don't get very large but only one good sized Plecostomus is needed. These fish are neutral and they won't bother anything (they're strictly vegetarian) and none of the other fish will bother them. The guppies do reproduce they're live bearers meaning live young and so do several others but the babies have to be quickly separated from the adults or they'll get eaten sometimes as they're being born so a good idea to get a separate small breeding tank to put the mother into a few days before she gives birth and have some fine grass floating around the top for the babies to hide in, after the babies are born remove the mother quickly as she'll eat then too if she gets the chance.

    The black spotted Marble Molly in the back looks pregnant already actually and probably ready to deliver any day now, keep an eye out for some small black spots showing up, without nice fine grass around the top they won't last long though, the tank is too populated for them to last long without it..

    The youngest has been gagging to open the pressies for a few days now, but has to wait for the older lad to get home from skool.

    Bit of a panic this morning.

    Realised it was already christmas day and i hadn't got the kids anything, so i did the hangover dash to the local market that sells all sorts of stuff for kids.

    Picked out a few things, some wrapping paper and bows, and retired to the nearest hostelry to wrap everything whilst enjoying a hair of the dog.

    After a couple of beers i was well relieved when my mate the barman told me i didn't actually have any kids.

    Anybody want an unused connect4?

    skool on crimbo day? poor kid. its difficult combining cultures/country specifics i guess.

    my boys were up at the crack of dawn running around. no snow here but i got some flour late last night and made 'santa footprints' around the house just for fun. all kids love this time of year.
