Been there, done that. Armpit is definitely better.

"Aid climbing is like sex. Itís exhilarating yet awkward at the get go, but the more you do it the better you get. And once you get married and have babies, I hear itís typically the first thing that goes out the window. "

A nice quote my wife just shared with me;

I have wept in the night for the
shortness of sight that to
somebody's need made me blind.
But I never have yet felt a tinge of
regret for being a little too kind.

I had a guy come upto me at the KP cliffs last Thursday night, he was a roller blader.

Blade dude: "That looks scary"
Me: "It's not"
Blade dude: "Do you know a guy named Mike Law?"
Me: "Not personally, I know of him."
Blade dude: "I went to uni with him, does he really climb or is he full of shit?"

There are some funny posts on Chocky from time to time.
Here is one that I (a balding old-fart), laughed at ...
Context is everything.

Context is the following sentence from his trip report...
ďThis pitch starts up a mega-choss corner, whereby the carrots (to protect the opening moves) force you into the corner, but you really want to climb an awesome groove of good rock 1.5m right.Ē

Time was pressing us now. We were very tired and there was still no hint of an end. Looking down we could see Ian using his knees. Mike rebuked him, saying that even if he were bone-weary there was no excuse for such bad technique when climbing. Ian looked up with a mystified air. "Climbing? Who's climbing?" he said. "I'm praying."

My belayer: " Just don't fall for a moment while I light up".

He has since quit, which will be good for my health.

" LIFE WASN'T MEANT TO BE EASY "

'...Fraser's best known phrase, generally taken as a gloomy explanation of life's difficulties, but for him rather it was a reason to take on difficult tasks...'

By default , Malcolm Frazer took a lot of fun out of life in Australia for many people , when he uttered those infamous words to the Australian public ...

In an interview in 1994 , Frazer gets a ' please explain ' ...


'...that speech is the one that contains, I think, the famous line that will probably haunt you to your grave - 'Life wasn't meant to be easy.' I think you used that in that speech.

I'm not sure whether I did or not. I didn't first say it then. I probably first came nearest to saying it, oh, many years ago in the early 1950s, when somebody was pressing me and saying, 'Why are you standing for parliament, you've got a place in Western Victoria you can live on', and I think then I said something like, 'Well life's not meant to be easy'. But people don't know, not many people are well enough read to know that it's a quotation, and also only part of a quotation. It's the old man in George Bernard Shaw's Methuselah. 'Life' - I'm not sure that I've got it exactly right but - 'Life's not meant to be easy, but take courage child for it can be delightful.' And you know, the Labor Party, when they got hold of it they thought, ah, now we can hang Fraser, and if I had some enemies in the Liberal Party they would have thought, ah we can hang Fraser. But most people - which they did not understand, what so many people did not understand, that you don't con the Australian public - for most of them it is not easy. For many it is damn difficult. And the recognition that whether it's meant to be or not, it is just not easy, but it can also be delightful, was a recognition of a truth.

But you didn't say life isn't easy, you said life wasn't meant to be easy.

Well I know, but people relate that to their own circumstances and they say it's not, well maybe it's not meant to be, and they wouldn't know how they could make it easy for themselves. And so it was, in a sense, uttering a thought and so the more my enemies said it, I thought the more they won me some brownie points instead of lost me some. ...'



HHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM...

Malcolm Fraser wasn't always as appreciated as he is today.
Here's one from John Schumann of Redgum, introducing a song at the Universal Theatre in Brunswick back in 1980 :
"This one's for Malcolm Fraser : may someone send him a turd in a shoe-box"

Once he was out of politics people began to be able to see past their political differences and recognise his contributions..

edit : anyone else remember the Universal? Lots of good stuff used to happen there.

Servin Usa, yes that would have been the song Schumann was introducing. They also did aanother very catchy pastiche of another Beach Boys number, Barbara Ann, as Bomb Iran, sadly still relevant today.
