Plat-t-whatty??



I am not sure who in this blogmunity has been to Australia. I was born there (this has nothing to do with my story, but is an interesting fact I thought I would share). My sister is a missionary there. My family (well baby sister, mom and dad) just returned from a trip there this past week.

While visiting the land down under my sisters came upon an interesting discovery...one which I had to fight Ryan to get to share with you, my dear fellow bloggers. Platypuses are a native animal to Australia, therfore they are in the Australian zoo's. Do you know what their homes are called? Not a "den", or a "burrow", no my friend...platypuses live in a...PLATYPUSARY! Thats right a platypusary. That is all I have to say about that.


P.S. My sister brought back a platypus doll for Jones and he loves it. We are hoping that he will love it and someday make it his favorite doll. Then instead of building houses or barns or whatever other kinds of forts you build with your stuffed creatures as a child, Our sone will build platypusary with his doll. Then he can invite his friends over to spend the night in his "Rad platypusary" he built that day. One can only hope and pray.

What if your son shortened it to his "puses" that lived in a "pusary"? That would kick ass! If you know what I mean. But seriously, give the little guy a kiss for me. What a cute kid.

um... does anyone else think this raj guy is overstepping his newbie bounds? I'm kidding. Glad to see you've joined the circuit, Raj.

As far as this patapusary goes... I don't believe it. I think you have just been watching too much of that stupid South Park... WHATEVA! I DO WHAA I WAAN!! Ok. That one was funny. As was the one with the singin and fightin all over the world...

I still don't believe you about the platapusary. Remember in Biodome when the guys got high off of laughing gas and Pauly Shore did his platapus impersonation? No? Anyone? Anyone? Just me? Crap.

well, im with arwen, south park is dumb. but jones is cool and jess is cool and the coolest thing of all is the platapusary. but its quite unfortunate that your little baby sister had to see sucha word, even if she is like 18 and 6 feet tall.

I'm afraid to comment . . . I'm always afraid that I'll interview for a job and they'll have hired a P.I. who pulls out all the comments I've made on blogs with the "questionable" sections highlighted and I'll have to spend hours defending myself.

That said, maybe you should name your nursery after a platypus den. You can put up a big sign above the door and serve "platypus milk," which should probably just be choclate milk, and should be served in cups instead of sucked from fur. Then you can start making souvineers like mugs with the title of your son's nursery. That'd be cool.

Ty I can't figure out the "Sucked from fur" Link. It goes to my blogger home page. Hmmm...

Ty said...

It was supposed to link to an article that says . . . "the glands in their skin simply 'ooze' milk out onto their fur where their young can suck it up." But now I can't find the exact article that started out with that type of sentence.

tara said...

ty, please dont ever say "oozed" or "sucked from fur" again!! i think those words might be grosser than platapusary. :)

I think she wanted to know what you thought about Platapuses, not where you use to live. I am just kidding.
Actually I lost my virginity next to Fred Meyer, in Vancouver. I think it was on foruth plain though...Maybe not. All the same, Vancouver does bring back some delicious memories of...well, never mind. I think you know what I mean.

arwen said...

haha. Just me. Fooled you! If you haven't been over to UWG lately, go check it out. Some of The Ladies attacked me because they come here all the time. This means that the stat counter is wrong.
What if I didn't talk to you anymore and I just commented on WAYJF... that would be rad.
I don't like rad. I prefer awesome.

Lisa said...

Ok, so now I have read that Raj has lost his virginity in texas on Jen's Blog, and now in the Couve...

This may be a miracle, as possible new patron saint of the week for arwen.

Gina said...

Didn't you know that your virginity grows back if you leave it alone long enough?¡ It's true, ask anyone.

RoniZee said...

"grows back" .... sick.

Ty said...

One of my friends in High School lived across the street there. Yeah, that was back when the Taco Bell, blessed be it (humor, not irreverence), had a Taco King behind it. we (lots of people from the youth group) would walk to the bell and then play basketball on the driveway.

Ty said...

So, behind the Fred Meyer by the dumpster huh? I think I recognize you now Raj, you look different without the beard and army jacket. BTW - 1. I didn't want to see that 2. mannequins don't count.

Jess said...

Oh Raj, Raj, Raj, Raj...What can I say...you are so funny!
