Why did the peacock cross the road?

To get himself a tasty Peahen!!

Sometimes in life you need to show off just a little. Letting people know what you’ve got and what it is that makes you someone to interact with or be around.

I know that, I do it quite a bit, much more regularly than many people. Way too much if you ask some, and not nearly enough if you ask others. Continue reading

Mike vs great white shark

This week I decided it was time to conquer one of nature’s true beasts.

And by that I don’t mean the Abominable snowman. Or the Tyrannosaurus Rex. I couldn’t find either of those at the butcher.

 

No, I mean the Great White Shark….!!!!!

A book, a skate and some memories

Who knows what this week was?

Here are a few answers that are correct:

  • The 41st week of 2012
  • The 41st consecutive different meat in a row for me
  • The week after the week before this one
  • The first anniversary of my wonderful mum passing away
  • The week I truly realised how annoying looking for a new place can be (or perhaps more accurately how annoying and unreliable rental agents can be)
  • The week in which it would appear Lance Armstrong is most definitely guilty

I don’t keep really close tabs on all of you, just some, so I’m sure there were one or two other things of importance. However, for me there was one other pretty colossal event and that was the:

100% commitment from me to write a book!

The Marsupial Times

Last week flew by (not literally) A holiday on Monday meant that absent of conscious awareness, it was Thursday in no time. I was training a client and she asked me about the goose from last week; that dense, stubborn big old bird. When she, seemingly naturally, asked “What are you cooking this week?”

Eel be alright

I started out this week going on a bunch of different rollercoasters , literally and figuratively; the week started at Dreamworld Theme Park on the Gold Coast.

I may rabbit on as a guy about having to be a real man and not an oestrogen flooded, out of shape pseudo-man like many we see today, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t act like children from time to time, hence my child-like enjoyment on ‘The Big Drop’ .

It’s all about ticker!

This has been a hectic and very different week for me.
Not only did I eat something not many people have eaten, but I embarked on two new journeys that saw me jump miles away from my comfort zone and into waters untested. For me.

Hey society- are we a bunch of lazy f**kers or what?!

It dawned on me recently while I was travelling, just some of the ridiculous measures we go to in order to relieve ourselves of a little bit of effort. I think anyone who’s ever been in an airport or a shopping centre will be familiar with the ‘travelator’ or moving walkway; the escalator that runs flat along the ground.

Just call me James Bond

There seems to be some debate, on the internet anyway, what the correct and proper plural term for ‘Octopus’ is.

I thought it would be ‘Octopi’, and so did many other people as it turns out, however, it is actually ‘Octopuses’.  Perhaps Octopussy is better, certainly for this purpose, as I essentially claimed James Bond status this week by taking down four octopuses in one sitting. Octopussy’s. Whatever…
