The deadliest, jelliest site ever. Brought to you by Niamh Shaw

I used up most of my weekly quotient of words yesterday on Angelina Jolie. However, a picture allegedly speaks a thousand words, so here are 4000 of them.

These photos are of Jed, Wombat – one of the few toys he hasn’t gnawed the face off – and bits of Husband. They were taken in the living room on a beautiful morning recently when Andrew and Jed were in playful mood after breakfast.

Jed and Wombat




Wombat gets the upper hand


The wombat-rustler strikes again

    JED HAS A WOMBAT – I am totally in Love (not sure if it is Jed, the Wombat or the giver of the Wombat yet) and envious of him too. I want a wombat. Also – I want an emperor penguin, an echidna, a red squirrel, a badger and a hedgehog.

    I’m sure Jed would be delighted to share Wombat with you. Although Wombat is missing its nose and one eye, Jed strongly feels the disability only enhances Wombat’s appeal.

    Jed also has a disembowelled chicken, a rubber turkey featuring a tattoo and earring, and a nasty sack monster. He’s only willing to share custody of Earl the Turkey.

    By the way, much as I would like to flatter myself that you are Totally in Love with the giver of the wombat, it has to be said: it sounds as if you are smitten by Wombat.


  4. He is the loveliest dog ever – and I miss him!

  5. deadlyjelly said:

    He misses you too, but then I give him a Tux and he doesn’t so much. They’re obviously pretty tasty. But I miss you, despite the aid of biscuits and assorted cakes.


  6. Compared to food he’s pretty much a fair weather friend, but with those big brown eyes,and his head on my knee and I melt like a 4 years old’s ice-cream on a hot summers day.

    Coincidentally – this also happens when I drink your margaritas 🙂

  7. deadlyjelly said:

    Well we can’t wait to have you here so Jed can slobber all over your knee, while I ply you with margharitas. Not sure where Andrew fits into this scenario. Perhaps you can talk about rims. Or something.


  8. Already talked about rims – we have our own little dynamic going on, dont ya know !

    We speak in code tho.

    Me: Billsteins or coil overs?

    Andrew: You’re dreaming!

    Me: I figure on dropping her a couple of inches

    Andrew: Sweet – but mind the camber

    Me: Thinking concentric top mounts

    Andrew: Sweeeet

    Me: Yeah.

    Deadlyjelly – can you not delete pornographic posts? I am sure that MarkJ’s post could be classified as (car) porn.

  11. deadlyjelly said:

    Yes, I think you’re right; I felt dirty just reading it. But unfortunately I can’t justify censoring it, since it had no swear words.


  12. “**** ****” isn’t a dirty word? I don’t know how you can call this a Family-friendly site.

    What is it with cars and Kiwi blokes? I swear, if a Brit guy took that much interest in his wheels, he’d be regarded as a weirdo and either referred for psychiatric reports or auditioned for Top Gear.

  13. deadlyjelly said:

    Hey! I’ve never called this a family friendly site! So sue me! And see how far you get!

    MarkJ doesn’t know this, but Andrew’s secret true love forever is actually motorbikes. Since they have only two wheels, it’s a more concentrated form of love than that Kiwi blokes have for cars. The force and passion of it sometimes scares me.

    I don’t believe Andrew said “Sweeeet”… he might have nodded or grunted a “yeah” but i don’t think his vocal chords can stitch more than 2 e’s together.

    So i am calling you our MarkJ.

    Actually, i am just jealous coz i have never met Jed 😦

  15. Poor Andrew. It’s hard to shine next to a million candle Niamh Shaw, and who wouldn’t find that hard?

    Still, that said, his mad bike riding skills are stuff of legends, once you ply him with a few beers and start hearing the stories. 🙂

  16. deadlyjelly said:

    You know, Andrew IS a legend: shadowy, elusive, greater than the sum of his parts.

    Thank you, MarkJ. That explains a LOT.
