Friday Night Free For All

I just went over to nzconcervative and there's no FNFFA.

So, why don't we start one off here and then move over to Zen and Lucyna's place when they get their charming arses into gear?

Adolf nearly died today. Yes, this is no drill.

He arrived home a little before 1600 and got himself a drink of water. On Tuesday he had had a front upper insiscor removed in preparation for a plate or denture. As a result the existing plate had become a little insecure.

With the second swallow of water Adolf realised the denture had come loose and had passed into the oesphaegus. Oh dear. Oh shit!

No air, no voice, no one at home. No neighbours at home. Adolf just made it to the phone and dialed 111. Speaking was nigh on impossible between gagging and flaking out.

While holding the phone, he managed to regurgitate the offending article with some considerable laceration to throat tissues.

I must say, I thought I was gone. Very, very scary. All I could think of was 'they won't get here in time.'

Shit, Adolf...that would be awful! Are you ok now, apart from the sore throat?

Barnsley Bill said...

Doesn't sound good.
Nice to see fnffa moving around. Just like the good old days, if it becomes a circuit I would be keen (as would my ratings) to host the odd friday..
So if I can kick off.
Weather great in the BOI today, shorts and a hat (to cover the bits that were still hirsute last year).
Been planting 2 metre easy peel mandarins and 1 ton palms all day for a friend.

Evening Adolf and KG.
I hope you are all right now.
That sounds truly frightening.
How was Tauranga?
Did you see John Boy and Young Simon?

FAIRFACTS MEDIA said...

Evening BB
You coming to the smoke soon?
I'ts time for bloggers drinks and a vrwc meeting.
You are invited too KG.

mojo said...

Yep Adolf, water will do that to you ... I can recall marathon runners with knocking knees as well.

Had something similar happen with an ice cube, when I was about 8-9.

Over the years, I've unblocked a couple of blocked airways.

I'm in no hurry to do another- one day I'm not going to succeed...

Barnsley Bill said...

Oswald, if you ever get an ice cube stuck in your throat again try pouring boiling water in after it. Should clear up the blockage in no time.
FFM, I will make one special trip to metropolis prior to the election for a friday night drinkies if you guys have one.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Anyway, to more important things.

Has it not been a pleasure unsurpassed, to have a day without the media once mentioning the dishonorable Winston Peters? And yo think, we might even enjoy ten years of the same while he enjoys his bread and water free lunches.

FAIRFACTS MEDIA said...

You obviously didnt see him in Dunedin on One News then Adolf.
But the students did not want him.
They must get a decent education at Otago.
I was thinking next Friday BB.
And then anothr 3-4 weeks later.

Barnsley Bill said...

that might work

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

I don't watch One So Called News

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Winita Petera has become a dead fish wrapped in a pin striped suit. After a while the stink drives everyone away.

mojo said...

The 'dishonourable poodle,' Adolf has probably quite effectively served his purpose in the service of providing a distraction and a platform on which your honourable mistress can publicly display disassociation from 'proper process,' and the objectivity and prime ministerial aplomb that is so befitting of someone in high office.
One can't help but think that thanks for the effectiveness of this are not in some small part attributable to the passion of such as the 'right wing bloggers.'

Barnsley Bill said...

Right, that is my lot. Off out on a "friday night" for the first time in 13 years.
I may post later to see if it really is just like riding a bike.
have a great night everyone.

FAIRFACTS MEDIA said...

You be good BB
And if you can't be good, be careful.

What's that you say, you are always good!

KG said...

Thanks FFM. :-)
If I can talk the Financial Manager into buying a BMW or something similar in the next couple of weeks I'm keen.
Grinding my up there in a diesel ute doesn't appeal so much though.

KG said...

"my way" that is...more beer needed.

I thought that Graham Henry should take over from John Key and run to become a Prime Minister. Mr Henry has good strategies in defeating the oppositions. What do you reckon Adolf? Graham Henry for Prime Minister.

FAIRFACTS MEDIA said...

No FF, this county is obsessed with rugby already.
anyway, what are MrHenry's politics?

Oh, I will be blogging tomorrow about how No Minister got banned at various government departments.
So we will all have to behave our language in future.

Oswald Bastable said...

Can't see any recent visitors for govt sites on my blog either!

FAIRFACTS MEDIA said...

Oswald, it appears they have the technology to do it on political grounds.
But it is most likely because of profanities.
So be careful if you want to talk about your cat getting a soaking in the rain.
The software might think you are a porn site.
And be careful when talking about enormous male chickens.

Geez Adolf, that's frightening.

The most terrible thing is you wouldn't have been able too vote the Bilious Bitch out of office!

Do us a favour old chap, if you're going to choke to death, do it on November 9!!

pdm said...

ff - Henry is another bloody school teacher.

He will be a lefty for sure and we don't need anymore of either (schoolteachers or lefties) in parliament. As PM he would be no different to Clark,

Lucyna Maria said...

Good on you, Adolf, for starting it up! Sorry everyone, no one around but me and I was distracted on a number of fronts. I've put one up now, but won't be offended if it carries on here.

Was the PM at the league tonight? She can't have been - the Warriors won!

FAIRFACTS MEDIA said...

What's the starry starry night that Whale Oil has blogged about?
The Hive is most confused and so am I.
Its great to see Whaley back.
He sounded most rough when I spoke to him yesterday.

Shite, the rite could have been one lite on the nite.

What's the moral there I wonder
