The first date sandwich

Last Friday night… My friend, lets call her Carli Preston, and I met up for drinks and some dinner. After a long work week with people and the ongoing beat of life giving me a good work out, I was up for a chilled evening of flavoured vodka and stuffed zucchini flowers.

Ahhh, Winter is here.

Thank you Melbourne! What a b-e-a-utiful (that’s probably copyright by that Jim Carey Movie where he becomes “god”, after being a tv weatherman (a natural progression?) anyway, so does that count as referencing?) Oh my Jim Carey, why don’t I know how to reference? I used to. Day, beautiful day. ANYWAY, today started in a […]

Word from the street is….

I find intense, if frequently fleeting, inspiration for creative writing from snippets of passing conversation. By that I mean snippets of overheard conversations, such as those I pass on the street, or one side of a train phone conversation.

Heading South for the Winter…

That might seem right if you’re an artic dwelling Brit whom chases the winter sun. But would you leave Queensland’s eternal Sprummer? Well, yes. If you got sick of being too hot. I know. I’m a hottie. But, what I mean is, I got sick of being ridiculously sweaty at 6am, just from taking the […]
