One thing that we can say safely Russell, is that you certainly are "not" a victim of Fashion! But a very unique human you are! mal

Is that a moistened dunny paper mask you are wearing, Russell? Careful...you might start a fashion trend!
I like the Quentin Crisp quote.
russell higgs: yes. moistened dunny paper.

Dunny. i think thats only an australian word isn't it. what is the origin of that word? is it to do with Dunking? or is it related to "Done" as in having done something?

"Dunny"....Strine [Australian language] for Outside Toilet...derivation unknown.
I have a theory it derived from the English word "dunnage"...wooden offcuts from a building construction. Many Australian houses were of timber construction until post-WW2; it was normal to have an unsewered out-house in the back-yard, and this little building was constructed from off-cuts of timber used in the main housing construction...thus "dunny".
I think it is a gorgeous word, and feel it should be included in narrative wherever possible. [grin]
russell higgs: aussie toilets always make me think of dangerous tiny spiders.

i'm so glad they're not an issue in london's dunnys.
