When I was in my early 20’s I was a gogo dancer in a few bars around Sydney. As I’m about to hit 40 I’ve found myself reliving my youth, breaking out my gogo boots again for a couple of … Continue reading 5 Life Lessons from a gogo dancer
“ (pointing at altimeter) We’re at 3000 ft now” “(thumbs up) Great!… How high are we going?” “14000 ft” “Oh, cool” internal monologue and nervous laughter… “aaauummm… 11000 ft higher?! So, um, we’re pretty fuckin high already…” Goals, dreams, wunderlust – whatever you want to call it – we should all have things we want to do. The Bucket List. A safari on the Serengeti, overcoming the fear of public speaking, diving with great whites, writing a book, learning to make the perfect pasta by hand, running naked in a rainstorm, solving a rubiks cube without pulling it apart … Continue reading The Bucket List and other life essentials
Howdy Toasters, Armed with just a media pass, iPhone and a few battery packs, I was living the rockstar photographer dream at Splendour in the Grass, a 3 day music festival held in Byron Bay, a beautiful little beach town on the … Continue reading Splendour in the Grass 2014: The RockStar Photographer Dream
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
Howdy Toasters! The question with a place like New York is how much can you squeeze into 2 weeks…and the answer is somewhere around π ! With emotions that ranged from excitement and elation at what lay ahead and deep sadness at what, emotionally, I was leaving behind* AdventuresOnToast -New York edition had begun. (* to see what was behind me read my previous toast ) Adidas, blue and white was the chosen flight theme and with more coordination than any man needs at 6am it was a pretty gay beginning actually. Through take off and the first hour of the flight I’m not too … Continue reading AdventuresOnToast – New York: Part 1 (Sydney > New York flight)
so awesome and full of joy Continue reading Watch arriving passengers be given a welcome home to remember at Heathrow Terminal 5.
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
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! Click the link to read about it. I hope you’re ready for a decent dose of WTF because the first story title i flipped to create is “On vacation for the first time in years a licensed cat hair stylist discovers who really killed JFK” (wow, told you… 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
Howdy Toasters, Holla and cheer for the word of the day it’s totes time to shine, champagne shower, read away. There’s a word of the day that I use far too much It’s totes becoming a bit of a crutch It’s a word that portrays something huge in it’s meaning And said with some modern day tweaks intervening Fit for all purpose and easy to say Resistance is futile, embrace it okay Feeling befuddled, not sure what to do? I know how you feel, that’s totes fuds to you Drunk and disgraceful and lighting your fuse? That’s not how you … Continue reading A Toast to Totes!
After my last post i thought something light and happy was needed.
This song just happens to always put a smile on dial and warm my toast
Howdy Toasters! Today I bring you Super(hero) news from the Marvel Universe.. As we spread messages of change and fight for equality in countries worldwide, the Marvel Universe is one step ahead in the GLBT equality game (yes.. “technically” not 100% accurate as we have equality in some countries, but not enough of them… so just make like the Silver Surfer and barrel through the facts ok).
