another aimless blog

yes, another blog to add to the millions out there already – but why not.

the kings cross wax works May 2, 2007

how cool was that place. We went there a few times when I was a kid and I loved it. I particularly liked the guy being tortured on the rack and the shark attack scene. We went to kings cross for a few family holidays. It was so exciting. Seeing the fountain and the ice cream shop. All the strip clubs. This was in the 70’s and it seemed very glamorous to me. I think we went so dad could go to the cricket. So I was pleased to find this packet of matches and she has become my favourite. I’ve made her into a coaster and she shall be mine. Daz says she looks a “bit rough”. But thats exactly what I like about her. She hasn’t been airbrushed or photoshopped, she hasn’t got fake boobs and she looks like she¬†wouldn’t take crap from anyone. What you see is what you get. The backgrounds a bit grubby so I’ll fix that. Go girl

Lest I Forget April 25, 2007

… that if I go to the dawn ANZAC service next year, I¬†should not wake up at 3.30am like a kid on christmas day. Because, when by 7am you’ve had a 40 minute walk, been to the dawn service, had breakfast, read the paper and checked your emails, the day just seems to stretch ahead for ever. But it was much better than the 10am service.

I’ve been looking through some matches that my grandfather collected. Peopleput a lot of work into match packets back then. Some pretty cool ones.
