First entry of 2005.
Better set an appropriate tone for the remainder of the year - *chants: healthy, wealthy and wise, alongside new career as ESPN commentator, and new abode on privately owned island - passing time eating scones, sipping tea and of course, playing basketball and maybe some golf*
Not such a far cry from current situation - only elements lacking are the basketball/golf skills - har!
Well that has been much to blog about over the past couple of months, however daily 9-to-5 life as a non-superhero has dictated otherwise. On that note, if I was a superhero (preferably Wonder Woman), I would be really pissed off if I had to save lamo people after work. So, here are some highlights in point form:
Truth or dare gone wrong when I had to run down the hallway of the Leo's apartment, enter the lift and descend to ground level in only my bra & shorts. Thought I got off scot free until ... the door opens on lvl 9 and in walks a middle-aged man. He proceeds to inquire "so how's the water in the pool?", to which I responded "oh very satisfactory". Oh there's my new year's resolution - get YDG, Rebecca and Shar back!
Sat next to sobbing Tsunami survivor on the flight to Melbourne. Funny how anything that comes out your mouth when conversing with someone that's experienced tragedy seems to sound either: ignorant or intrusive.
Golf, golf, shopping, casino, Edvard Munch, and some more golf. Subject of more cruel jokes continued as evidenced by the following footage of YDG's devilry. Your evil laughter still haunts me!
Wild night with "to-do" list completed (including such tasks as: getting random stranger to lick lolly off chest; get random stranger to take off their underwear; kiss a bald man's head). I came away from that night sporting a broken little toe after over-exuberant zorba dancing from someone wearing boots with THICK HEELS. OUCHY! Now not only do I have an oversized head, I am also the shameful owner of a mongoloid toe.
Predilection for pictures certainly was not one of my new year's resolutions, so here goes some pixels:
Completely useless, but at times good to have function on digital camera put to the test. Silly photos to match the silly people.
Day of fun at Taronga Zoo.
Saw lots of animals (funny that), and came across TOO MANY crying, whinging, annoying little kids (har sounds like me).
I suspect that these animals have quite the life. They spend all day lazing around, eating, sleeping, licking themselves, and getting pictures taken of them by nosey people. At times they get blinded by flashes of lightening (e.g. me attempting to take a photo of a platypus in the dark, only to be reprimanded in front of a crowd of people - oh the shame shame shame).
