AdventuresOnToast – New York: Part 1 (Sydney > New York flight)

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)

Holiday….. with a side of empty neurosis

Howdy Toasters, Planning a holiday should be a wonderful, exciting thing. New adventures, new places, new lifestyle, new streets, food to taste, shops to see, bars to play in, the list of exploration and discovery goes on…. Stepping out of your own life, even for a moment should feel fantastic…. So why doesn’t it? I’ve always had excuses to not travel.. too busy, not enough money, new job,  no job, study, fear and sheer bloody minded, stupid obstinence… I’ve made them all and now, days away from my first overseas holiday in an embarrassingly long time, happy to going away, … Continue reading Holiday….. with a side of empty neurosis

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

The grass

Howdy Toasters, (getting all post break up poeticy… ) I was sitting on the hill on my little patch of grass…. It was dry, wilted, burnt and browning. You could tell it needed tending just by looking. But it wasn’t just mine, it was ours. To be honest I knew it needed care, not that you could tell. A green thumb isn’t something I possessed and rather than learn to garden, find a fertilizer, buy a garden zombie to add some life (or gnome as normal people might ) or just  simply water the dying patch that surrounded me I … Continue reading The grass

Gay Marvel Superhero Wedding of the Year; DC Green with envy

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).  Northstar ( aka Jean-Paul Beaubier), who entered the Marvel universe in 1992, is speeding to the alter to marry his long term boyfriend Kyle.. and they even have their own wedding kiss cover … Continue reading Gay Marvel Superhero Wedding of the Year; DC Green with envy

if rhino’s were unicorns

Howdy Toasters, I stumbled across this picture in the wonderful world   of facebook recently (do you follow me?) thanks to the amazing Jackie Beat . At first i thought it was a super cute image that belonged on a shirt from threadless, snorg or cafe press…. then i took a moment and breathe to reflect. Once i did i have to say my opinion changed and, like Jackie, i’m saddened. Sure i could think ” geez toast, see the irony, have a laugh” but, as cute as it is, i just can’t. It’s sort of a reflection on our (confused) … Continue reading if rhino’s were unicorns
