adventuresontoast – New York pt 2 : The drinking game

Howdy Toasters, So one of the lessons learned, actually remembered is probably better terminology, while adventuring is that US bars serve booze in a way designed to knock an elephant off it’s trunk in one sip. Now the art of drinking, remaining upright, joyous and conversational is one that, a few minor incidents aside, is one that I’m fairly well practiced in. I’ve been Valedictorian at the Veuve Cliquot Championships, Petron’s People’s Choice Winner, Wild Turkey’s Top Turkey and labeled Cognac Mack by Hennessey but not even this number of alcoholic accolades had me prepared. One shot from a drag … Continue reading adventuresontoast – New York pt 2 : The drinking game

Life is all about the Banter

Howdy Toasters,        Life is all about the banter, it’s pretty simple when you think about it. Banter is like the jumping castle we wish we all had in our backyard (or is that just me?). Some would argue that love is what makes the world go around.. but love starts and is kept alive with the banter. Platonic love, romantic love, physical love (note to self: add to to do list), love of a teddy bear, family love…. You can’t love someone if you can’t banter with them…. Hell I barely like those I can’t banter with and … Continue reading Life is all about the Banter

On vacation for the first time in years a licensed cat hair stylist discovers who really killed JFK

Howdy Toasters, So i’ve discovered a new creative writing book, because 642 Things to Write About apparently isn’t enough.  The Amazing Story Generator is a whole book of flip fun that takes storytelling to crazytown!

Philomeyna Tonkinese is a lady in demand. Every Burmese Persian, Russian Blue and Singapura from Australia … Continue reading On vacation for the first time in years a licensed cat hair stylist discovers who really killed JFK

642:4 Memories of “home”

Howdy Toasters Flipping through my magic book of 642 things I stumbled across the topic ” What is the place or object from your childhood that you most think about when you think about home.” Having a very unconventional childhood in a household of drug addicts, drug dealers, police raids, hookers, bikies, bikie moles, tough guys, domestic violence, changing partners of either gender and lots of moving about  I actually find this quite hard to relate to. I have  a lot of memories and experiences from this colourful upbringing.. most are things that a child should never experience. Seeing my … Continue reading 642:4 Memories of “home”

Serenading in your sleep

Howdy Toasters! So every now and then a first happens.. when we were young they happened all the time, first step, first word, first day at school, first day on the job, first kiss, first hot kiss, first shag, first time trying to sneak out unseen past the housemates of the stranger you met the night before, not quite sure where you are really wishing you had your sunnies as much as a panadol…not that i’ve ever found myself in that situation…. anyway, i digress, where was i? Oh yes, firsts… as we get older they tend to happen less … Continue reading Serenading in your sleep

Totally Confusified! (warning: this is a bit ridiculous)

Howdy Toasters! Has anyone else noticed the bastardisation of the modern day articulization?  I myself am totes guilterous of throwing the odd portmanteau and words of my own construct into my language in the pursuit of more colourful ways to communicate but one has to ask..what would the purists say? What would John Dunne think in this pinteresting, spacebooky, twitterific,linkedup world? The language is confuserating enough when one word has 3 pronunciations, totally different meanings and different spellings ( case in point: The cold wind blew such a gale I didn’t know whether the weather would turn the wood blue..seriously!) … Continue reading Totally Confusified!
