Bong or hookah, Churba?  Either way, it looks like you had some nice company  ;).

It's a hookah. Bongs don't have pipes.

Here are some images of my office.  I finally got it put together,  This is a little old as I've since finished putting more stuff together or setting it up in there but you get the Idea.  Yes! For those who remember the bigger desk, I decided to rip it out and go with the two smaller ones... *meh*  The bed will be handy... Now I just need a decent computer chair like I had in the house before this one (still got the chair as you'll see in the garage pics but it's just way too broken).





And here is my blokes shed!  It's been altered some more since this but I'm sure you get the general idea.  It was packed fairly solid before but now I've just got some more tidying up, clearing out and sorting, then I'm rocking!





The other awesome thing that happened recently is I had my Grandparents stay for a while and after he helped me organise my shed a bit and I drove them home, my Granddad gave me his old tools... My Granddad is a retired mining engineer and I'm not talking about the paper shifting kind.  He started back in the day as a blacksmith's apprentice around the age of 13.  A good deal of the tools are 30+ years old (older than me) and apparently a few even date back to just after WWII.





Those books he gave me in the last page are from the 60's and 70's.  But I actually love the older workshop books 'cos they show you how to do things without a lot of the more fancy tools you can get now-a-days... I'm trying to decide if I trust the safety of my hands with welding to 35 year old welding gloves.

P.S. hmmm I should probably shrink these pictures myself rather than rely on photobucket to shrink them to a reasonable size in future.

Dont listen to her Charles  ;) A bloke must have a refuge and it is called the "shed".

I want a bunker. But I have my laboratory, and it suits me fine.

Just the usage of the word bloke sounds funny to me. You crazy cats and your funny words.

What about a bunker laboratory?

See thats a bloke's shed.  It has it's own fridge and above the fridge there's actually a line to the TV aerial, so I'm fully setup. The only reason I need to leave is for the dunny.  Beyond that I could hold out there for weeks... but it probably needs a pool table... and a dart board... to keep the friends occupied while I work hard... yeah... thats it.

Yeah, I need a bunker. I've got a nice sound system out in my lab, and I can rock out there and drink tea in between workings... A mini fridge full of beer/sake/vodka will have to be installed and proper comforts brought. Because soldering while wasted is a great idea!

... :P

*lol* Well you might notice the two bar stools I have in my shed together with the chase lounge... it's a hard life.

My fridge will probably just be filled with cola for the most part.  It tends to be my drug of choice.

@Churba: is there anything you've done which hasn't left a scar?  *lol*

Got a couple of chemical dunnies in the attic you could use Charles.  Been in there for at least 15 years since my dad thought of converting a VW van into a camper.  Needless to say that idea never worked.

@Churba: depends what you sleep on. A broken bottle in the gutter could leave a good mark *lol*

@Oddball: then I'm covered for the dunny... Could probably hold out there for a few months in that case... depending on the capacity of the dunnies.

I'm thinking of going back to shorter hair and clean-shaven

Here's pretty much how I currently look (like Boromir... minus the dust)

And me with shorter hair and no beard. (I'm the bastard on the left just in case you can't tell somehow)


I might keep the hair a big longer than what you see in the second photo... Maybe down to the bottom of the ears or something but I'm just half thinking of a change.  *meh* I'll give my beard it's long overdue trim and take some photos while I think it over.  Maybe It's just 'cos it's overgrown right now.

But my workplace is also thinking of taking a new set of employee photos for the website and id cards.  Currently my old photos is from short hair and no beard so I'm just thinking how funny it would be to get a fresh one taken with long hair and beard only to walk past the poor girl responsible for the website, an hour later with no beard and short hair *LOL*

Not to mention the fact my new passport photo has long hair and a beard so that could be awkward if I'm still planning a trip to the U.S. later this year and they're still on high security *LOL*.  I think they also take particular notice of people who had beards and have since shaved.

Yeah, instead of the one mandatory pat down, you get two. pat pat pat. Hard to say man, but whatever you do, I demand photos.

HAHA I'll have to act like a stereotypical homosexual and fake an orgasm as he frisks me *ROTF PMSL*

I'll get home now and take a before photo, get my company picture taken tomorrow then head home for lunch, trim the beard for another photo, shave down to a 'tash for a 3rd photo then have the full shave and go get the haircut.

...actually, I really liked the hair I had for my wedding, I'll have to find a photo and post that.

It was freezing but fun.

Actually we are running out of salt to clear the roads, so now they'll only keep the roads clean that we need for disasters.
