What a Weekend!

We had a hugely fun weekend of partying and chilling with lots of friends and interesting new people to boot.

Today is a public holiday in Sydney but I have so much work to do I will spend a lot of the day catching up with stuff that I did not get round to last week.

I was chatting to a younger guy who owns his own bakery business over the weekend and we were discussing running a business and how other people perceive things.

There are two types of people, those who think you should find a real job and you just have some little 'hobby' you do, whilst the others think that you must be rolling in money, and everything that the business earns is yours.

You spend so much time building up the business and pouring so much of the money back into that you become immune by how much money the business makes and how little you take out.

You also work so hard that you lose sight of the goals you set out to achieve because you are spending so much time running the business.

Anyway it was really interesting to talk about business and running a small business!

Fun busy weekend

We had a really fun busy weekend going away to the Central Coast for a friend's 30th Birthday.

It was a really fun small group of people (maximum of 12) in a rented holiday house on the edge of the lagoon just opposite the beach.

Great house to throw a party in with four large bedrooms a pool downstairs and a sun deck upstairs too.

Great fun was had by all and I reiststed any temptation and did not take my computer with me for the entire weekend! So no work stuff in between good times.
Funny coincidence of the day is having one of our friends up there for a day and night who has reguarly been featured on All Aussie Beef...

Weekend's Wrap

This weekend saw quite a bit of social activity for omce away from both Home and the familiar surrounds of Oxford Street.

On Saturday night we went to celebrate the very sweet Gus's 25th Birthday at Gus and Adams home in the surburban enclaves of Sydney. A hugely fun night and we finally go to introduce the beagle to the huge labrador Shelton.

It was also nice to see the ever sweet Dan who is no longer 'from the mountains' as he has moved into student accommodation in the big smoke woohooooo!

Then on Sunday the celebrations of 'Gay Christmas' otherwise known as the Mardi Gras Festival, and in particular Fair Day was in full swing for us.

Apart from having a very badly behaved beagle who would NOT sit still and strained and pulled till our tempers were frayed we had a blast. The boy went home late in the afternoon and then met back up with us all early in the evening as we went on for dinner and then more drinks at The Bank Hotel in Newtown.

Fair Day was as usual a mixed affair in terms of organisation. For the umpteenth year in a row people were not allowed to bring in alcahol and instead had to buy it on site.

Now that's fine and we understand that Fair Day is a licensed event AND New Mardi Gras has to make money, but for crying out loud have more then two bars in the entire place so people do not ahve to queue for more than 20 minutes to get a drink.

It's a small issue and I suspect may even be intentional (to stop people from getting drunk as it is now a very child friendly event).

The dinner was enlighteningas we were talking to some friends who whilst being ten + years younger than me have a very similar view point on community and the need for it.

Mind you the hot boys at Fair Day were fantastic, although many of them are going to have some very unattractive tan lines this week hehehehe.

Anyway a hugely fun weekend, so now it's full steam ahead for the week and today I finally move into my new office, although I don't have an internet connection in the office yet so I will have to work from home until that is connected.

Reclaim Oxford Street Vigil

This weekend a Reclaim Oxford street Vigil is being held to protest against the steady decline of the Once Great Golden Mile into a violent dirty place to visit.

I have a huge vested intetest in this area as we live here and Oxford street is our basically on our front door. So anything that affects the street affects us in a very personal day.

So if you have the inclination and want to do something some along this Saturday and stand up for a real clean up and solution for Oxford street! I will be there with the beagle as this is our normal dog park and I feel a real need to stand up and be counted!

WHAT: 'Reclaim The Right' Vigil

WHEN: 26 January 2008, starting 4pm

WHERE: Harmony Park (next to Surry Hills Police Station)

BYO: Rainbow flags, friends & family, seating, drums/instruments, peaceful determination, sunscreen, snacks/water

Check out the Sydney Star Observer ( for ongoing coverage and more background information:

Back in town

I have just got back from an amazing couple of days in Melbourne staying at Peter Pan's (his real name is forever a secret) house. The boy met both Dangermouse and myself down there on Friday and we spent virtually the entire weekend.

The weekend was a total riot with everything from playing dress ups and tongue kissing a Warhol portrait, to being absolutely munted on the dancefloor at Market a gay nightclub in Melbourne.

I have never really spent a lot of time in Melbourne before apart from when I would go down for two or one day work trips. But most of these times I did little else other than work so I never went out or wandered through the shops

But I really have found Melbourne loads and loads of fun! Oh the letters above are from a movable art work that you can create your own words and phrases, Dangermouse did this one with PP.

Last week up until Friday was a bit of a right off for me as I had a terribly sore back which I have now been told is a bulging disk (personally I think it's just some swelling that caused a spasm but I digress). I was not really in the mood to do much because of the pain and I was even a bit cautious about going to Melbourne. But it seems to have mainly sorted itself out now which is fantastic.

While I was in Melbourne I decided that a new art acquisition is required, so I have decided to purchase two of Scott Redford's sculptures entitle My Favorite Polar Bears, one in white and one in black.

I just have to work out a payment plan as they are not cheap!

Talking about art I had a fascinating discussion with Peter Pan about art and legacies. His own very impressive collection will upon his death be donated to a mjor public gallery to be known as the "" collection. It was really interesting to think about what your own legacy is going to be when you die.

For a very long time I wanted children because I wanted to leave a legacy or something of me for the future. But as I have grown older I have realised that I do not want the all encompassing responsibility of children.

PP's concept is that art collecting and then bequests to a major gallery are the best way to be remembered for posterity. He explained that buildings unless a magnificent structure don't last long these days, by the time your children (if you have any) pass away your memory will have been relegated to not much.

But because art is timeless and historically important by building a superb collection over many years and giving it away as a whole will entrust your name to history.

It was a fascinating though actually and it truly did get me to thinking again about what I would like my legacy to be.

Start to the week

Well my campaign to have London Preppy 'give' me the life size picture of he and his boyfriend Scott seems to have gained some steam which is excellent.

Thanks to all my friends and followers who have hassled him so far, and a gentle prod that if you have not already done so, hurry up and bloody well do so!

I had a fun weekend which started with a dinner out with Danger Mouse and Nick and ended up on Saturday night at a house party with about 8 people. Needless to say that I was feeling very sad and sorry for myself on Sunday and I am still pretty much tired today. But it is self imposed so there I am certainly not looking for sympathy.

On Friday night before I went out for dinner I received an email from the ex mate I share my office with. T he email was basically a reminder for me to pay my rent (which I always pay at the end of the second week of the month just because it's setup that way in my accounts system) and a thinly veiled request to move out before the end of the year.

Yeah sure I knew I had to move out in January some time, but I really did not want the hassle of having to move and the stress of doing it all before Christmas.

Not the least of which even though it means I will save on rent I need for my own sanity to have a stable work environment which includes having a proper office.

I worked from home for years and I almost went totally bonkers. Working from an office when it was mainly just me was also not good for me. So I am at a bit of a quandary what to do really.

I would like to share an office space with someone else preferably around the city still, and preferably within the same part of the city. I don't however want to go through the whole process of getting another commercial lease, not the least of which until I know how the next four months of the big six month plan turn out. Because I don't know how much actual space I will need in a few months.

The other big issue of course is the dog, part of the understanding of getting a beagle is the need for her to come to work with me every day. So I need somewhere where she can come to work still.

It's stressful just thinking about it, at least while it was 'in January sometime' there was till between 4 - 6 weeks to deal with it all and enough time when people were at work to hunt round for something suitable.

This way it will probably be about the end of January or early February before I end up finding space and moving in anyway.

Anyway such is life really!

Now please if you have not remember to do a blog entry or comment to London Preppy to convince him to give me the picture!

Oh and the pics are from Aquadaks a new swimwear company set up in Melbourne Australia.

Monday's Mondays bloody Mondays!

After having such a fun and busy weekend, Monday is a real drag in more ways than one.

At least the puppy dog was immensely happy to see me last night with her whole little body wagging and moving.

And I justgot word literally right this second that an old drinking buddy of mine has given birth to a little baby boy named Nathan.

It's daown right scary to think that someone who manages to kill catcai is now a mother! But that's just what happens when you get older your friends start having children and you keep partying, disgraceful I know!

Weekends are made for fun!

We seem to be quite social at the moment seeing people a lot, having dinners and generally having a lot of fun. It's a nice balance against the amount of work we both tend to do and the weekend just past was not exception.

On Sunday the boy went off to play paintball (gay team against straight team) and cam back covered in nasty welts and bruises, whilst I ended up with Nick at Phoenix for an hour on Sunday morning. Phoenix Rising is the new replacement for the day club Manacle which closed last month.

If you have ever been to a day club totally sober and having slept all night (and staying sober) you will know what a hoot it was.

It was actually a whole lot of fun and it's amazing who you run into at these sorts of things.

Then last night we went down to FagTag at the Opera Bar on Sydney harbor. This is the second time we have been to this event and every time we go I am reminded just how fun the event is but also just how beautiful Sydney Harbour is!
Anyway I have a huge week and my to do list looks like the list of lists it's so long so no long post today.

When I was looking for pictures for this I typed Opera Bar Sydney Fag into Google and I ended up with my image from last year as the number one Image Result!

Sometimes the totally unplanned are the most fun

Last Friday we had nothing specific planned and we were just planning on having a quiet night in, but that soon went out the window.

Danger Mouse rang mid afternoon and asked if we wanted to head down to Slide to have a few drinks and meet an old school friend of his who he had re-connected with through Facebook.

It sounded like fun so we said yes, but before that could happen Nick messaged to say he was wandering by and so he came up for a coffee which turned into an open bottle of wine, which then turned into Army Boy, and another friend, Danger Mouse, Nick and later Danger Mouse's friend and even his flatmate too.

And then even later another friend of Danger Mouse's who we also knew came over before he was heading out to FOMO at Arq.

So many bottles of wine and a very fun dinner up the road reminded me just how much fun a totally impromptu night can be.

We ended in bed fast asleep just after midnight whilst Danger Mouse entertained his friend downstairs on the sofa (I don't want to know the details).

The rest of the weekend was spent busily doing chores and lots and lots of entertaining, drinking and socialising.

I also have one cryptic comment for the day ... Barriers do not improve performance when people get distracted, they just hide what people are doing.

Trashbags R US

We had meant to have a quiet weekend, catch up on things, do some work and some chores around the house.

On Saturday I did finally manage to paint the long wall in our downstairs living area, and boy was I surprised that two coats of paint took almost 6 litres of paint!

On Saturday night we went with some other friends to a mate's pre Halloween party way out in the suburbs (about 45 minutes out of the city on the freeway). I seriously though I had entered an alternate universe it felt so much like I was 17 and at someone from school's back yard party!

It was freaky but loads and loads of fun.

We had meant to have an earlyish night and g home sleep etc so I could work the next day.

But NO, what do we do? We end up staying there all night, and then in the morning went to Arq nightclub and then to a friend of friend's recovery party.

OMG talk about trash bags! And the poor puppy was not happy at being left at home either, poor thing was all sulky.

Was fun though but I am paying for it today!

Finally the update on the weekends frivolities

I have been trying to find some time all week to sit down and write more than a couple of lines on the fantastic time we had on the weekend (starting Thursday night).

The weekend started on Thursday night when we went with the English One to Home Nightclub for a Homesexual Party! It was a total blast and it turned into a bit of a Sydney Bloggers meet up too, with the very sexy Gus there (and yes he even took his shirt off and danced with me!) and rather sexy Margeaux both making appearances.

Although Anthony Callea did perform I was entertaining elsewhere chatting and dancing so missed said pint sized performance. Now I did hear it and now have seen it on Youtube and I must say I am glad I did not bother battling the crowds to actually watch it.

But fear not as the early morning light started to filter in we left Home Nightclub and had to WALK from Cockle bay back up the Oxford street. Obviously due to the APEC madness there was nary a taxi to be seen, but you can imagine that the streets where littered with Police who were rather bemused watching a whole gaggle of poofters wandering through the city.

After a short break at home to shower and change we then went into stage two, Day Recovery at Manacle. Now for those of you not from Sydney Manacle is about as grungy, dirty down market as you can get and I love the place!

The English One came with me and half way through the morning Nick came and met me too. I love this place and will be very sad once it closes, but of course more to the point where the hell will we go for more early morning recovery when we certainly don't want to be home and still need to be out?

Sometime after about midday I dragged myself home, the English one had bunked off with a straight boy hours before and I was in desperate need of some sleep.

After about an hour or two of sleep the boy and I headed out for a quick bevvy with friends before heading to a private recovery party over at the Horizon with the very fun Nick from Californication and other associated friends, acquaintances and eye candy, ahem I mean people!

I did try and get some pictures of Nick and I , but all we ended up with was some blurry shots that look more like a small nuclear bomb going off than Nick and I.

The Recovery was a total; hoot with lots and lots of alcohol and dancing around at one stage in our underwear! It made perfect sense at the time thank you!

So some time Saturday morning the boy and I finally went home and went to bed, totally exhausted and I still feel it now!

It was fantastic spending some time with some fellow bloggers and it's been really nice getting to know both Margeaux and Gus. Unfortunately Adam was not feeling well so had gone home earlier int he evening which was a shame because I have only briefly met Adam!

But Gus and I have promised that we will catch up either before I head overseas or after and we can introduce the puppy dogs together too!

So tomorrow is a week till my holidays start and I still have at least three weeks worth of work to get done before then!

I do think the classic comment of the weekend has to come from Margeaux, who told me I was a bad influence on Nick LOL,

C'est moi?

More Bloggers Meetings

On the weekend we were invited to Margeaux's repeated 27th Birthday party which was a total hoot! The party was great fun as you can see above both Margeaux and I were most definitely a few sheets to the wind.
In fact I was told off twice for being rowdy.
In incident one I put my butchest voice on and screamed at some friends down on the street, Unfortunately I didn't realise that a security guard was downstairs and I was told off twice, once by the security guard and the second time by the host :)
The second incident involved me throwing ice off the balcony - I just have no idea what came over me!
But maybe it was the great group of friends that Margeaux has that made me lose my common sense. The illustrious Nick from Californication was there too which is always a pleasure. I really do love eclectic groups of people at parties it's really cool to meet all types of people not just the 'regulars'.
And we will be seeing Margeaux at Homosexual this coming Thursday night too!
No if you are very lucky there is one of the worst picture of me ever on Margeaux's camera, it shows me in my campy silly self, hands in some horrible campy expression LOL, so if you need to see this hassle Margeaux LOL!
We are off to the Gold Coast today for a few days to escape the APEC madness and have a bit of R&R in between working from a different location.
My 3 Net connect card is plugged into my trusty Sony Vaoi, my mobile is charged and I am excited!
The puppy is in doggy day care at Rose's and has been there since yesterday afternoon and I miss the little miss already, but I know that she will be fine and happy!
So great weekend was had!

Another weekend another party

It would seem that almost every weekend we seem to end up partying in one way or another. Having had a huge weekend last weekend and a pretty full on week too catching up with our mate in town from LA.

This weekend was supposed to be a lot quieter and slower, even though we were throwing a party in honour of our mate from LA!

As it was I was feeling particuarly chuffed yesterday after inviting Nick to the party last night from Californication, he told me he had just posted a blog entry about meeting me. To say I was chffed would be a total understatement the post is so sweet :)

It's always a bit scary throwing a party especially as we have such an ecclectic group of friends that woudl not generally meet apart from doing something like this.

You never know just who will turn, when they will and how everyone will or won't get along.

The start time for the party was eight, and by eight thirty we still olny had one freiend there, but like all parties by midnight the place was heaving with people!

Since I am really on my diet to lose the rest of the spare tire round my waist and get back my abs, I have almost stopped drinking wine entirely, and have switched to vodka:

1 Galss of Vodka Soda and squeeze of lime -> 60 odd calories


1 Glass of White Wine -> 120 - 130 Calories.

So all in all a significant different, not to mention that you drink more soda than wine which makes it even better!

By about Midnight though, the mixing of the drinks from a nip of vodka in each glass became half vodka and half soda water. I didn't feel especially drunk last night although I had also not eaten from about lunch time as we had a large special lunch for my mother's Birthday.

There was a little bit of drama last night as well with two friends having a huge blue over some things that have been going on, and another friend's acquaintance being a total mess due to his friend dying the night before from a GBH overdose.

The long and the short of it meant that today I have been feeling just plain hideous! We were on our way with a whole group of people driving up to the Hunter Valley to go taste wine and have fun, but within twenty minutes of the drive I started to get shaky, nauseous and felt just grim. So the poor boy turned the car around dropping me off home and then catching up with the rest of them.

I have spent half the day sleeping and the other half feeling quite grim. It's only now at about 6pm at night which I am feeling better (not fully better but almost better).

I am pretty sure that I most likely ended up drinking well over a bottle of vodka last night all t0 myself.

I will not be doing that again for a while!

I have a pretty busy week this week, a couple of large client deliverable and trying to get everything wrapped up so I can essentially take next week off while the APEC thing is on in Sydney.

We received work last last week that yes as expected my office will now be in the high security area and unless I want to submit to extensive checking I will not be allowed in. Mind you we are in the Gold Coast Monday - Wednesday for a work thing which only leaves Thursday of which I will simply work from home!

Noted too...

I noticed that you can now upload video directly to your blog so I have given it a go!

Two degrees of Separation

The weekend was a huge event for us with lots of things to do and a huge Birthday party / clubbing and then recovery that went from Saturday night till Sunday night.

The party was for Chuckles (as his partner lovingly calls him cause he always has a smile on his face) and very unlike a gay party it was a Tupperware party! Yes a Tupperware party, and even further we did in fact purchase some new outdoor (read plastic) wine glasses for the roof.

Now before I get caned for having plastic wine glasses, there is nothing worse than having glasses blow over in a breeze and having broken glass around, especially with the beagle running around.

The party was hugely fun and we all ended up at The Bank hotel in Newtown, then a few hours later upstairs at the Midnight shift. Early (or late) in the morning we all traipsed over to try and get in Arq but by then they were no longer letting anyone new in so we tried the new club downstairs at the recently refurbished Oxford hotel.

This one was kind of OK, but as hot as all hell and we were really just killing time till Manacle opened around 7 am. Manacle has to be one of my favorite clubs, it's dark it's dingy and its always a recovery place with people that have generally been out all night and are still partying well into the next day.

By about ten am I had well and truly had enough and headed home for a sleep and what I thought was going to be the end of the day.

But no fear, the day was not over yet LOL!

After about four hours sleep Chuckles sms'd to tell us to come to a recovery at none other than Nick from Californication. Now this was was cool, and the whole two degrees of separation, Chuckles grew up with Nick in the same rural town in NSW, I kid you not!

In between acting disgracefully, drinking, watching the new episode of Kath and Kim and generally having a blast we even managed to keep it together to blog on Californication!

One really funny thing that Nick and I did discuss was the fact that he thought I was a pure and innocent based on what I write on my blog, I was stunned even amused, because I am anything but innocent. If I hadn't already been drunk I think I would have fallen over in astonishment.

Of course this led to a discussion on just how good / bad we actually are, but as we blogged yesterday any more details would just incriminate the guilty parties.

One nice thing from the weekend is that I am finally starting to feel that my diet is paying off, although I am feeling pretty body conscious at the moment due to an almost total lack of gym for the last couple of weeks and I feel tiny and i look like I have no muscles at all, my waist which was in serious danger of becoming huge has turned the tide and my abs are starting to reappear!

I have been really good on my eating habits and have almost totally swapped vodka for wine (although yesterday the boy and I did manage to get through four bottles of white wine.

So for the first time since going out for my Birthday last month I didn't feel quite so fat! I still have a Long way to go and I need to get back into the gym properly (I almost feel like I am shrinking and no just around my waist!).

My waist has gone done almost two belt buckles and the jeans I bought a month ago which fit perfectly are now sexily loose!

I am aiming to get back to my size 30-31 by the time I head overseas in late September.

So the weekend was a real blast and probably our last big weekend out for a while before we go away, or that's just what I think!
Oh and the piccy was stolen from Dan Murphy's Flickr account! and is of Manacle around Mardi Gras time.

So onto the weekends wrap up

Friday night we had friends over for drinks and canapes to celebrate the start of my Birthday weekend which was fantastic and for once even the dog semi behaved by not trying to most everyone that came through the door.

After the drinks a large number of us moved on to upstairs at the Midnight Shift for more dancing and frivolity. After hours and hours and hours of dancing chatting and carrying on we moved on to Arq nightclub which was only open downstairs.

The music was awesome and the crowd was really mixed and lots of fun.

Then we wandered across the road to Manacle, which as always was fully the the rafters of fun and happy people.

Sometime around midday we went home and then were invited to a recovery at someones apartment near by which we went off to.

All in all a huge weekend and was great meeting new and really interesting people!

I think the highlight for me though was the very sweet young guy who was so convinced I was lying about my age that he made me show him my license :)

Thanks ...

The Puppy Strikes back

It was a long weekend in Sydney and so we had a full weekend of fun and frivolity planned, culminating in us attending the party Homesexual at Home Nightclub in Darling Harbor.

We also played host to some good friends who were down from Brisbane who we don't see all that much so it was really nice to see them!

The party was a blast and we had a fantastic weekend all expect for Saturday when the little beagle had an allergic reaction to her yearly vaccinations. In the picture above you can see how much her poor little face swelled up.

It all happened over the space of a couple of minutes almost five hours after she had the injections. One minutes she was sitting with us on the sofa watching TV and the next minute her face just ballooned up.

We literally picked her up and took her straight to the vet, where she had another three injections making a total of six for the day! Poor little mite was not Happy, but the swelling started to go down pretty much straight away and withing 24 hours all the swelling was gone thank goodness.

This week has so far been a bit slow for me, I have bucket loads of work but after partying hard over the weekend my mind and body are definitely not at their peak performance!

Puppy Birthday & Ten Pin Bowling

I have been absent from blogging for a few days and I habve enjoyed it too LOL!

Seriously though we had a great weekend but were both happy to have some down time and not be social butterflies the entire weekend. We did have friends over on Friday night to help celebrate the dog's first birthday.

We did have a small muffin with a candle for her to blow out (do you know how difficult it is the get a dog to blow a candle out?).

The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing for a change, although on Sunday night we went Gay Bowling with friends J&T.

The problem with having a big weekend is...

The problem with having a big weekend is:

  1. You don't really want to be working, more like lounging around being lazy;
  2. You are still tired and trying to catch up on all that sleep you missed;
  3. Your liver is telling you it feels poisoned by the alcohol;
  4. You still can't drag your sorry ass to the gym;
  5. Even the dog looks at you with disgust;
  6. You have to creep downstairs to the recycling bin in the dead of night so the neighbors don't know how trashy you are;
  7. Oh whatever the neighbors actually know how trashy you are.

Oh well recovering slowly in the office!

The Long Weekend's Frivolities

Every now and then we throw caution to the wind and kick our heals up in the Emerald City, and when I saw kick I mean, basically act like 20 year olds and be trashy for a couple of days & nights of utter fun.

The long weekend started on Thursday night with drinks at home with mates T&J and their your work colleague who we shall call Sit. After drinking and carrying on for several hours before heading out to Arq nightclub. Because the club was closing at 4am we had to compress a full night into only s short time which was pretty fun! Although I was absolutely rat shit exhausted from several weeks of work and not bad sleeping patterns so I bunked out early.

But the next morning we started again with J & Sit who we drank and carried on with til late in the afternoon.

Then one house party at 6pm and a dinner with friends at their place that night! One hell of a cool twenty four hours.

But then Saturday!

Drinks for a friends 30th, dinner at a friends place and bed.

So Sunday was supposed to be a day of family and relaxation, but no fear our arms were twisted (ever so well) and we succumbed to going out again with friends!

Sunday night 11pm ARQ.

My God we haven't been in the place for years before Thursday night and look at us, we end up going out twice in a weekend even worse to the same place.

what are we like?

So there is the extreme partying over for another few months, but we did make some new friends through other friends which is always cool. It's funny but it does take a lot for us to actually meet and then bond with new people as we can both be very focused on our little work and sometimes we forget to look outwards.

Feeling Kind of Sore

There is a hiccup in my preparations to wear footy shorts to the dance parties this weekend....

I will not be able to do any cardio this week as I have hurt my leg.

It's all a bit silly really. The metal false ceiling on my life fell on me last night and the sharp edge of the metal jammed straight into my ankle just above my Achilles tendon.

It look hideous with a huge big triangular wedge gouged out of my leg.

The doctor at the Emergency Department told me how damn lucky I was that it only grazed my tendon and hasn't damaged it at all! Five nasty little stitches and some pain, and I can't do any cardio this week!

I am just hoping that the swelling and pain will all have gone by the weekend so I am not hobbling around at the dance parties.

In thinking about this, I am so very lucky. If I had not been wearing thick jeans I would now be facing surgery to reattach the tendon and months and months of physio therapy!

Thanks guardian angel!

Two weeks two weeks two weeks

Well it's less than two weeks now till I want my abs back, and I am not sure whether I will meet the target.

Yes I will be cardio 'ing' every day, slurping my diet pills Lipo 6 and generally being very good with my food, but I have no idea whether I will get rid of the final layer of fat hiding my poor abs.

I am kind of getting used to the Lipo 6 now and I am enjoying the extra kick from them in the mornings! The fat pinch test is definitely showing a dramatic difference in the fat, but until I can turn sideways and no longer have the "bump" I will not be happy in compulsive obsessive behavior!

Last night was the Sydney Bloggers meet up at the Tilbury. A blast was had by all who were there including: Brenton, NSSG, DG, Narcicus and more!

I Love and hate Monday Morning!

You know that love hate relationship that people have with Monday? I love Monday mornings because it's a new week and I always have new goals to achieve!

But on the balance I hate Monday Morning because it's the total end of the weekend, and my weekend was good!

We went out on the weekend to the Blue Mountains to 'stretch' the legs of a friend's new car, the very very very sexy Aston Martin Vantage as seen in the pic above.

It's just hot hot hot! And talking of hot we met another friend's new boyfriend. Oh yeah, now this boy is the total package, lovely and soooo sweet and very cute to boot!

Oh yeah and the three hellish workouts over the weekend, but I think I have just given myself a really hard new goal! Details to come on that one!
