Welcome to a very special edition of the Café. It’s Migs’ Birthday!
Just to embarrass him even further, I thought that today might be an opportune moment to reflect on some quotable quotes from Migs himself.
*One Latte coming up, with a couple of Fruchocs.
*ME, Abbott could never go in the one straight direction. He’d fall off the edge of the earth.
*Where’s my mind!!!! Bugger the coffee – let’s raid the cellar.
*I’m glad I’m a duck 🙂
*I’ve just open a bottle of this: 2001 Clarendon Hills Brookman Vineyard Syrah (Shiraz). Anyone care to join me for a drink?
*Migs on technology: TB, nothing beats a good fountain pen to write with – and – cropping is ‘cutting’ the edges off a photo.
There once was a fellow called Keating
Who always gave Johnnie a beating
The language was shrewd
As he pounded the dude
With words I feel like repeating
*Pip, I’m whistling Dixie. 😀
*Bacchus, wrong thread. Media Watch is our dry zone.
*Mobius, I’m getting the impression that denialists – when faced with evidence that breaks down their argument – shrug their shoulders and say ‘it’s nature doing its thing’ and bemoan that we can’t do anything about it anyway.
*LOL. Give the pig to Tom.
*Both stories mention a focus on improving journalism. How refreshing that the aim is to increase standards instead of profits. By increasing the former, they will ultimately increase the latter.
*Migs the charmer: Pip, I’m guessing you’re the sweet little innocent looking cutey pie – and – What’s the matter Pip? Haven’t you seen a sausage before? 😛
*I’m gobsmacked, but can see how it happened.
*C’mon. Give the guy a break.
*Min, it’s probably because you swear too much. *Yes, do hide in the cellar and leave me the key. . . And that cork screw I see hidden in your pocket. 😈
*Aquanut, I didn’t mind Planet of the Apes, but I must admit that Planet of the Camels doesn’t thrill me. But Planet of the Ducks hits the spot. I can see a movie part coming up.
*Joni: “willy worriers”…. That caused a loud laugh which made people in the office look my way. The funniest (and best) description/put down I have seen for homophobes…. Just perfect.
*Migs @3.17pm, I have to admit I needed to have a sit down. It took my breath away. Was my post that good, or are you referring to the front page of The Australian? I’m hoping it was my post.
* I reckon dog food would taste better than a Balfour’s pie. I’m not keen on them. Neither am I keen on dog food. Bird seed’s OK though.
*I’m having a Dark Roast Moccona myself, Mobius. Damn fine coffee. *I’ll stick to my water bowl.
*I can still hear the sound of distant drums. Wait, here comes a pigeon with a note around one leg.
*Did you take those photo’s Joni? I like the fish heads. Although it’s a photo of dead fish, it’s kinda cute.
*Min, not wrong about going backwards…in many areas. Any chance of agreeing with me on anything? 😀
*And here’s our cellar’s private dining room: http://www.theworldwidewine.com/Wine_humor/why_I_hate_wine/fancy_wine_cellar_in_wine_wit.jpg
*Neil, if Abbott gets in your next cheque will be your dole cheque.
*Or his mouth frothing. Or dribbling. Or the bulge in his lycra. Yuk. Did I say that?
As of today Miglo has written over one hundred and seventy posts. An amazing person and an amazing friend. I would therefore like everyone to join me in wishing Migs a Very Happy Birthday.
