Has anyone ever endured what is now my Nana's favourite movie, RV? It's pretty lame, i had to watch it this weekend being that Yarrawonga isn't exactly a hubub of activity and there's not much else to do... other than watch movies or work on your tan i suppose.

Anyway, last year my mum and her partner bought one of these RV Winebego things... imported it from America then had it converted to right hand drive and stuff, so it was all good to go. This year, they took it up to Corowa for New Years and had a bit of a camp and all that.

We're nothing if not the common man, my family.

So i didn't quite realise when mum said they'd pick me up in Yarra this afternoon, that this was going to be my ride.. that is, until i saw it pull up outside my grandparent's place.


Jealous? I felt like the teenager in that movie... At first, i was really embarrassed and considered missing work tomorrow and just catching the train home.


But, after i had a sleep for an hour or so up the back on the queen size bed, i started to come around to the great pile of shit as my step-father character lovingly refers to it. By the time we were back in Melbourne, i was sitting up on the co-pilot seat loving the great pile of puss!

I saw this movie on a plane. It wasn't as terrible as some plane movies but still ... craaaaap.

And I have a soft spot for the RV. I want to go all-out bogan and take one around Australia. MrL keeps arguing we don't need anything more than a car and a tent but I disagree. I'm a fan of luxury.

Dot said...

do you think we can borrow it for weekend-roadtrips?

Mars said...

can YOU drive a bus?

kiki said...

i can!

Mars said...

OF COURSE you can, keeks...

kiki said...

are you getting all 'pro-labour feminist' on me, again, Mars?

Mars said...

AGAIN, keith?

kiki said...

see, this is exactly what i'm talking about...

you're conveying an extremely aggressive tone and all because I, a male, posess the ability to drive a bus.
it's a shame i can't spell on top of all this though

Mars said...

me? aggressive?

GET OUTTA HERE!

also, it has nothing to do with you being a male, i just knew you\'d be able to drive a bus. and also, you\'re about the most competitive person in THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD. which is fine, ya know... i\'m just saying.

kiki said...

me? competitive?

GET OUTTA HERE!

you should have seen me arc up the other night during a game of trivial persuit.
the question was "who is the current president of Pakistan"
to which i replied
"Perez Musharraf"
they didn't want to give me the PIECE OF PIE because his name is 'Pervez'
i mean, come the fuck on!

Mars said...

and then what happened?

you ranted and raved... poked your finger in peoples faces... stood up to further prove your point... huffed and puffed... threatened not to play anymore before finally tipping the game off the coffee table to send the PIECES OF PIE flying under the couch in 99 difference directions?

then some poor asshole came along, made the peace, set the game up right again and gave you your pie. so you were happy and the game went on.

which you won. (but everyone else probably just let you so they could escape, vowing never to play a game with you ever again)

is this right? hah hah

kiki said...

pretty much. except i didn't win, cause i'm stupid.

Mars said...

so you sulked the rest of the night then?

kiki said...

yeah. it was very john mcenroe-esque.

Adam said...

ahhh young love...

Mars said...

naaahh... he\'s just an alpha male who can\'t help having the last word!

(and i may or may not be an alpha female if there is such thing.. err)

kiki said...

not young love adam, i don't like to be dominated

Mars said...

who would be trying to dominate you keeks?

Adam said...

pash, pash, pash!

Mars said...

heh... think i might just end this line of questioning, right here.

adam, you are a shit stirer.. leave us have-the-last-sayers alone!

Adam said...

NEVER!

Haha, now I got the last word.

Mars said...

yeah?

kiki said...

i want it

Mars said...

turd

actonb said...

um... are we allowed to comment on the RV thing, or would that be an unwelcome intrusion into this cosy little threeway we have happening here...?
Because RVs rock!!!! And are not bogan in any way. na-uh. no way.

Chesty LaRue said...

To be fair to adam, AB, I think it's a two-way with an audience. Which is still pretty cosy.

You're such a bogan.

actonb said...

But surely we're ALL the audience... Mayeb it's just a twoway with someone else having front row seats...

Adam said...

You're both right... I'm just heckling from the audience.

kiki said...

mars is like michael richards though, so watch out what you say

Adam said...

Similar in hairstyle?

Mars said...

hey! no heckling the blog owner.

BEVIS said...

Just so you know, I'm watching too.

(And I'm loving it!)
