no coupons in australia

October 19, 2009 Posted by the writer

P22-08-06_13.26[1]I love living in Australia. It’s a laid back lifestyle, four weeks of vacation on top of public holidays is standard… the people are cool for the most part (let’s face it there are going be a few scaries anywhere you go)… and if you can afford to live on the coast (which naturally I can’t), I don’t see why you’d ever leave your neighborhood – except to go to New York City, of course.

no kangaroos at the airport!

October 18, 2009 Posted by the writer

I read an unfortunate articlePicture 110 yesterday where another celebrity (Kristen Bell) visited Australia and said something like ‘Sydney airport was disappointing, I thought there would be kangaroos.’

The first kangaroo I saw when I moved to Australia in 2002 was roadkill we drove past on they way to Lyndhurst.

So my point is Yankee people, if you happen to cross an Aussie (which are few and are between considering there are only about 22 million of them on the planet), please don’t make¬†a silly¬†comment about 1. Kangaroos or 2. Steve Irwin… or Fosters. Fosters is the crappest beer there is down under.

100_0976For my Aussie mates that I know peep the blog (shout out to Karina, Botchy, Freya, Kerry, Graham, etc!!) … check out the deer eating my Mom’s garden.

None of my Australian people would expect to see a deer at JFK airport, I don’t understand why ‘famous’ Yanks continuously defame our nation by traveling down under and saying stupid shit about kangaroos.

The paddymelons in the photo above are hopping around Daydream Island, part of the Whitsunday islands in north Queensland. The most exciting place I’ve seen kangaroos in Australia is lounging on the golf course about 10 k’s out of Brisbane.

So if you travel to Australia, do yourself a favor and do NOT make a stupid kangaroo or Crocodile Hunter comment (ps. Bindi Irwin is a mess). I suggest asking for a VB and to be pointed in a coastal direction…

brain freeze, busted knee, and SNOW!

October 17, 2009 Posted by the writer

100_0965I can’t believe is was snowing yesterday! I felt it coming the day before when I decided to go for a jog. This was a bad idea for a few reasons, like Gretchen + anything requiring coordination = serious risk.

I ran halfway around the block and it was so cold I seriously got brain freeze worse than the time my mate and I decided to skull vodka/sour apple slurpees.

A few hours after my weak running attempt I was whinging on the phone to my sister about how my knee hurt, who compassionately replied, ‘Did you fucken stretch?’ (more…)

the ick side

You know what the ick side to art is?DSCN1857 Competition. I don’t mean being out there with zillions of other other artists… whenever I meet someone sincerely trying to do their thing I usually become full of giggles and wiggle in delight. (more…)

So I get the whole ‘I live in the city, sometimes the world revolves around me’ thing…

DSCN0849That said I’d like to talk about the most recent tosser that said they’d give me a spot to squat at and lied. I think it’s illegal to say her name but it starts with ‘V’. (more…)
