Friday Fracas

Yep. Its Friday. I'm working my second weekend in a row. So I'm tired and cranky. Well, not really. I've been slipping on the blogs of late because I've actually been getting off the computer at a decent hour and getting some sleep!

Wonders will never cease.


So I found out about Dancing Dad last we all heard. Have you all caught up? Good. Well, straight from that I found out that one of my workmates wives has cancer again. Multiple metastatic bone cancer. Luckily it hasn't spread to the organs yet, so they may get more time with her. I cannot imagine what that family is going through.


More depressing news. My apartment smells like shit. And thats not because I have cats. In fact. All of the apartments in my block smell like shit.

Yes, this is Sydney. No, we haven't had a dead granny in our building. At least, not that I know of anyways...

We had a fire. I'm guessing a pretty bad one too. Out entire ground floor entrance is grey with drip marks down the walls. One door is black above it. The apartment (from what I can gather) has been pretty much gutted.

And it happened really early in the day too. I mean, the fireys were standing out the front gossiping to the cops when I left for work at 7:30 on Tuesday. And they were already done by then.


I joined an adult dating site. Seriously. And the men there are fucking horny cunts. I keep getting messages like there is no tomorrow. Some rude and crude, which disgust me but I secretly love.

I have had a laugh at this before, but guys will fuck just about anything that moves. There's an 18 year old on there happy to hook up with a 50 year old.


And I love that guys can use the lamest, most pathetic pick up lines and still fuck up the delivery online. Really. They're just chucking the line out there and seeing how it goes. Some guys get it really well. Comes across really funny and interesting, and they get further attention. But they are few and far between.

And then there's the guy who watches WAY to much porn. And you can tell by his profile/messages. These guys aren't any good. They have no idea what pleases a woman and that some things will work for some girls but not others. They are (as a blogger I can't recall, names them) jackhammers.

On, push, push, push, groan, splat, 'Was it good for you?'

AND THEN there's the guy who's way outside my set age bracket, who's been on that site for FOUR YEARS. Picking up random girls. I guess. Eww. Just. Eww.

They should rename the website...

Ah yes. This will be blogfodder for sure. Even if its just smut posts.


And thats about it.

Dating websites scare me, a lot of the men are really creepy.

jali said...

I've met two guys from a local dating site. Ugh! It seemed as if they each had someone much wittier write their notes for them. Two dull rocks in a row.

I removed my listing.

Spiky Zora Jones said...

I had a friend who used a site like that to have fuckdates.

Phish babes...come here to Hollywood...I have lots of cousins. They are handsome Greek Italians with lots of money. They're my cousins so...I would assume they are fab lovers. It runs in the family (pats myself on the back) they would fall head over tea cups over you, swetie.

ciao babes.

Oh gosh, the dating sites...I've been there and done that before. LOTSA times.
I haven't been on one for at least six months now...but I should sign up like you because you know, at least it makes for entertaining blog fodder! You are so right with that.

Glad your apartment didnt' burn down Phishy.

It's a sad sad lonely world out there in that is for sure :)

Josh said...

Your a brave girl. I just could not do it.

I know two couples that met on finafuck and are really happy - indeed they swear by it for sifting out the crap but it just not my thing.

They have some very funny stories about the freaks they met along the way.

I will die single before I ever signed up with

Josh said...

I've never had luck with those online dating sites, it seems many of the "regulars" on there are on the skeezy side. Be careful!

Crushed by Ingsoc said...

I would stay clear of it, but it depends what you want. There are several contact sites which are far more open, as in, the people on there state in simple terms what they are after.

Livy said...

I think we really do have to go with the technological flow these days. Internet dating is what many people are doing. I think it's great to know what a person's likes and dislikes are before bedding them. Maybe you could try a few different dating sites? I'm sure they can't all be sexually orientated...or could they? I'm so sad that your apartment smells, time to go and buy some incense. I presume there is something wrong with the sewage system, or is that just what Sydney air smells like? It must be exciting living in inner city Sydney.

This post is not a fracas; it’s more like the afternoon news on TV.

phishez_rule said...

Oestre - try ALL of them!

Jali - dull rocks? Jeez, that must have been an interesting night.

SZJ - If I'm ever in the neighbourhood I'd so go for that!

Betty - I find it fun. It moves so fast.

Josh - sifting out the crap is the worst bit. I think thats where the best fodder is going to come from.

Josh (with the jeebus pic) - hey, I just wanna get laid!

Ingsoc - You must know the site I've just joined. You described it so well.

Livy - my apartment smells because there was a fire in my block a few days back.

Nick - I called it a fracas cuz it ran nicely off the tongue.

The T-Dude said...

Wow. Fire in the building, sorry 'bout that. Dating site? Here's what I don't get. You are a bright, attractive young woman who can obviously put two or three words together better than most. Are Aussie men just morons for not sweeping you off your feet? I know, that's easy for me to say, I found the love of my life, but I don't understand why a catch like you is on a dating site. You should be beating them back with a stick and a quiver full of witty retorts.

Kitty said...

Fire = scary = excting

if i wasn't married i'd be all over that shit.

MsPuddin said...

Damn what is up with the fires lately?

I do not for the life of me get the appeal of an older man. Even when I’m fifty I wouldn’t want a fifty-year-old man. Well maybe if I was married and had no choice, but for the most part. Ew.

Steph said...

Can't wait for the blog fodder. Go get 'em Phishy!!!

Anonymous said...

Tell me, are their lines as bad on screen as they are in real life?

I had a man tell me on Friday (cue extremely sleazy voice) that I was "very tall". I responded with "And you're not!" before walking off.

Cazzie!!! said...

LMAO at the site name u gave it, ahhaha, that kills me, but then again, it makes me scared too :(
How about just going out and finding a nice boy eh...make an appearance at The Local...yeah, you know, the local CHURCH each Sunday *winks* lol.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

You for sure have to post your dating stories for us to laugh at. There are some big weirdos out there, and horny men, like myself, so be careful!

BottleBlonde said...


HAhaha! I've never actually gone on a date from those dating sites, but I HAVE joined a couple of 'em to see what it's all about, and all I got were dirty, old men and a couple of youngins hitting on me. I'd rather pet my own poon than touch their taints.

Though I'm a little more open minded these days. I think I'm going to take your advice soon and start dating some guys from those sites just to make my blog more interesting.

'I keep getting messages like there is no tomorrow. Some rude and crude, which disgust me but I secretly love.'

And there you have it, Phishez.
The same anonymous medium that allows them to tune you with their crude remarks (and not have to watch you blush with feigned disgust) also permits you to admit you love it (without having to necessarily follow through with your fantasy).
You're no better or worse than them, baby...and the net is fundamentally no different to dating in the real world. Same percentage of cunts wherever you look...

Keshi said...

**No, we haven't had a dead granny in our building

LOL Phishez!

You can catch an STD just clicking on that link.

unique_stephen said...

do any of them send you pictures to put on your other blog?

Effortlessly Average said...

Ok, but what's the site's name currently? heh.

So what is your age bracket?

phishez_rule said...

T - I'm fat and noone wants to date the fat chick.

Kitty - if you weren't married you'd be scoping me out.

MsPuddin - yeah. I like my droopy bits a tad less saggy and wrinkled.

Steph - I'm going and getting.

Miss D - They're worse. There's no tone for them to be delivered with.

Cazzie - They're a little too nice for me down there.

DrK - Note to self: avoid the weirdo's, find the horny guys.

BB - you know you don't have to actually date to get laid there.

Fingers - but not on the same spot.

Keshi - glad you enjoyed!

Y - I'll wrap my mouse in latex next time I log on.

Stephen - I have seen some pics that would be suitable.

EA - I'm not giving that away. I may as well link to my profile!
