I have very oily hair so I wake up quite greasy even if I shower before bed. I could probably get away with just combing it but it makes me feel gross.

Why would I shower after coitus? I want the world to smell my sexual conquests on me so that they know I am a man of power and a good leader for the tribe?!

Fair enough, have you tried dry shampoo? You spray and then comb it through your hair - takes no time at all and works really well!

I'm lucky with my hair in that it doesn't need extensive washing and only takes about 30 seconds to "style".

The strawberry floater really wanted to get out of the spot in front apparently. Of course, they didn't leave any details. strawberry floating fuming.


So this just strawberry floating escalated. We took the car to a mechanic who just got back to us saying that, as the PURELY COSMETIC damage repair would cost more than the value of car itself, he cannot let us have it back and he has no choice but to scrap it. He says this is his legal obligation and that he has to inform the state and insurer that the care is unusable.

What. The. strawberry float.

I would understand if the damage was safety related but it was a side panel that got a bunch of scratches and a big ding in it. The car is completely roadworthy.

This is in France. Do the same rules apply in the UK?

I'm not aware of what the laws are in France, but that sounds like some grade A bullshit right there!

We're doing some checking but the apparent long and short of it is this:

The equivalent of the MOT in France states that cars must be roadworthy and 'maintained.' When the mechanic was inspecting the car he was doing so with this in mind.

Essentially, the car would not pass an MOT's 'maintained' criteria in the state it's in, and as the cost of repairs is more than buying a new car of the same model and year, he has to scrap it. He's said we could go ahead with the repairs but we'd have to source the parts and then get new MOT done (which would probably involve more repairs and costs).

It's the bullshit 'maintenance' criteria of the French MOT that means we've lost our car due to it getting scratched whilst parked.

strawberry floating hell.

Pretty ironic when you consider the cars that France manufacturers.

I'm pretty surprised that their MOT testing would care about that.

Just noticed I sent myself a text message last night at 9PM but I can't remember sending it or what it means.

"14:25-2"

I genuinely can't remember what I was doing at 2 yesterday. That sounds like a bad defence in court.

Given you can't remember what you were doing at 9pm or 2pm yesterday, I can only assume you started drinking about 8am and spent the entire latter half of the day blackout wasted. Which is pretty bold for a Thursday, well played.

Had a dream that Denster sold Jawa a posh campervan and he was keeping it stored on the roof of a multistorey car park :lol:

We've decided to fight this now, precisely because of this. It's a strawberry floating car, not a disposable razor!

Also, we just found a replacement panel, same colour and everything, for €40 on eBay.

Can you get a car that doesn't make you look like a mobile vegan poet?
