[smirk]

Listening to: ‘Dirty Mind’ by Shakespear’s Sister

On Monday I had trouble getting anything in focus on a telescope a customer was interested in, so got my colleague to help out. She took it and him outside the store into the atrium. Being towards the end of the day it was getting dark*. Too dark to focus on anything, save for one store: Bras ‘n’ Things. [outer smirk, giggles, some post customer cackles]

Was standing at tram stop on St Kilda Road this afternoon, Fed Square side, when I happened to look up and see a 2’ high sign saying ‘C OCKS’ [inner smirk] It was the sign for the gambling den next to the station, which normally reads (Taberet?)‘CLOCKS’ but I had happened to stand in a spot where the frame for the windows of the tram stop opposite, cut out the ‘L’. While on the tram it happened again. Two foot high ‘COCKS’ strategically framed by the tram’s windows. [another inner smirk], actually reads ‘ALCOCKS’. They are a pool and gaming tables supplier.

Happy Birthday… to you
Happy Birthday… to you
Happy Birthday… Johnny Depp…
Mmmmm :*)
Happy Birthday… to you


*When using a telescope for terrestrial use you need daytime conditions. When using it for space you need night time conditions with a minimum of ‘light pollution’.

Haha! ;-) Love the very relevant music you were listening to when writing this post! I must admit I prefer the previous B&T advertising ... with the satin gauntlets. Catch you 'round :-)

Apart from her gauntlets I didn't. Had to walk past that bloody skinny bitch to and from work.

I loathe underwear models in their itsy bitsy undies, with their tiny little bums, tinier still tums, and their impossibly fuzzless skin. Everytime I see one I feel like poking their eyes out with a blunt object. Grrr...

oh yeah, sure :-) I usually only admire the merchandise ... most of the models are airbrushed so you can't see the ribs sticking out. Bleh!

Melbourne needs more pornographic trams. It would make commuting so much more interesting.

Lady Meerkat said...

[chuckles] You know by saying 'more', you imply that we already have some don't you ;)? They must run them late at night becasue I haven't seen any...

Lady Meerkat said...

...Just naughty signs around them :P

Ah memories of Melbourne...sighs...I guess if there's going to be a big sign that says "Cocks" then St Kilda would have to be THE place for it...And you have inspired me to go did out my Shakespeare's sister cd...
