Recently I found myself in the land of the free. Yes, the great Orange Free State, Bloemfontein. I had a wedding to go to there and once I heard I was invited to the bachelor’s too there was no way I was going to say no.

The bachelor’s started like a normal one really, with drinks flowing. The soon to be married man (dead man walking) being dressed up in stockings and what not and of course photos with random hot chicks we saw on the way.

The bachelor, having a poor form of drinking habits, retired early or should I say basically got kidnapped by his soon to be father in-law and whisked away in fear of anything really bad happening. I don’t know why he felt that way, but in hindsight I almost begin to understand.

We carried on the party without him and on our trip home we happened to pass a police van, but not any old van. It was a giant personnel carrier with wheels almost the same height as a 12 year old. Of course it being left unguarded and in the middle of a field I thought now was the perfect time to get some photos. It started out fairly mild with us just posing next to the van, then pretending we got arrested, then us on top of the van and finally us IN the van. Why they left it unlocked is beyond me.

Up the road when we were right at the back of the van playing “good cop, bad cop” we saw blue lights coming down the road. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s a new day and a new theme

Posted by lanktank on December 5, 2008

Good morning!

What is so good about it I hear you ask? Well, the sun is out, it’s a balmy 27 degrees here in the “mutha” city and oohh yes, how could I forget… it’s a Friday! WOOOOHOOOOOO

Among all of this, I suppose you’ve noticed The Lank Tank’s new theme. What are your thoughts? I hope satisfactory. It wasn’t so much that I wanted the change but rather that I needed to change it.

I was out last night having a drink with the Girl Next Door, and she informed me that The Lank Tank wasn’t displaying correctly in Internet Explorer. I asked her how long has this been going on and she replied, “Since the first entry!” Thanks for the heads up.

I’m not sure I’ve introduced Girl Next Door yet. For many years, roughly 21, Girl Next Door and I lived next door to each other. We’ve shared some good times… and bad but oh how we’ve laughed.

A couple memories that spring to mind: The time we wanted to make some extra cash so we decided to pick the flowers from Mrs H’s house, only to sell the them back to her.

The time I thought Girl Next Door was away, thought I heard someone breaking into their house, decided to call the police, only to have them bash the door down and find Girl Next Door and 6 friends under age drinking. In my defense, the one guy at the party did look like a pyschopath.

And who could forget the time she ran over my cat… I certainly can’t. But she did come round with chocolate cake before breaking the news. Although I did get a blow by blow account of how poor Buffy looked after her imminent death. I’m quoting here, “Jesus LT, you should have seen it; it’s eye was popping out of it’s skull!”

I lost my appetite for the cake…

Anyways, hence the new theme… let’s hope this one works out! I hope you like.

Weekend…weekend…it’s nearly the weeeekendddddd!!!
