Holding the Man part deux

To have a clue what I'm talking about see previous post.   I ordered the book from the local book store. Was told it would be in in 10 days. Thought I could wait. Was wrong. Luckily the local library had a copy. I laughed. Fell in love again. Laughed again. And wept. And wept. I've never actually cried over a book or even a movie. Shed tears, yeah, all the time. But I was actually crying as I read the final stages of this book.   I'm sounding like a broken record to the few that read this bl

Holding the Man

"I guess the hardest thing is having so much love for you and it somehow not being returned. I develop crushes all the time, but that is just misdirected need for you. You are a hole in my life, a black hole. Anything I place there cannot be returned. I miss you terribly. Ci vedremo lassu, angelo. " Tim Conigrave, Holding the Man   These are the last lines of the play I went and saw last night. I'd heard a lot about it mainly because it first opened a year ago and is now in its fourth s

Snow Patrol and holidays!

I just got back from Snow Patrol at the Acer Arena here in Sydney. I'm tired, I can barely hear out of one ear and I have a headache - but I'm f**king ecstatic! I may not have been to many concerts in my life but the boys from Scotland put on one heck of an entertaining show. The hour and a half they played for flew by, but each song got the crowd pumping more and more and by the end you could feel the energy coming off every smiling face.

A wrap of the TV season past

I'm not sure if I've mentioned how much of a TV watcher I am on this blog before. I refer to myself as the "TV Whore" a lot of the time. During the regular TV season I watch in excess of 20 weekly shows that range from Grey's Anatomy to The Sopranos, from How I Met Your Mother to Entourage. I'm firmly entrenched in the American TV season and devour each episode as soon as my download speed allows me (shhh don't tell anyone). Hey, if I'm planning a career in the industry, I'd better get fully res

Fun in the unexpected

You know those times where a certain series of events leads to something that is so random, possibly enjoyable/possibly beneficial, that you can't help be thankful for the decisions you've made, even though you were uncertain at the time?   Now I'm not talking about something life changing or that meaningful. Sure, there's those times as well, but just something small that you can't help but smile and feel like it was meant to happen.   I was invited to a 30th Birthday dinner for one of my f

am i not okay with being gay?

Warning: contains sexual description not suitable for young eyes.     Picture this: a pretty full cinema in a large but small-minded country town with absolutely no visible gay community. Okay, now playing on screen is a film that's part of a film festival currently on (hence the large crowd), that's been advertised as a French film about a man who finds out that he has a brain tumour and will die in a matter of months. Fair enough, sounds depressing but alright for a bit of Sunday night ente

blog resuscitation

Ok so I know I haven't posted in a while. I've been lazy. Plus I think I was turning this into a task where I pretty much wrote about everything that happened to me. And that can be quite dull for both you and me. So New Year, new blog!   I'm sick at the moment. Turns out I have a cold/flu that's brought on a middle ear infection - or so I've been told by Dr Yim. Dr Yum more likely. Wow. I go to this medical centre just up the street and the three times I've been there I've had three different

long windedness

I'm currently eating this ham and cheese croissant and may I say it's the best crossant. Ever. I know they're not the best for you cause there full of sugar and probably carbs, but damn!   As I said in my last post, the idea last Sunday was to actually get some Christmas shopping while in the city again and resist the urge to buy things for myself. Well it kinda happened, just. I managed to get some pressies for my parents. But I caved by the time I got to JB Hi Fi. I've wanted a Wii for a whi

epiphany, creativity and film

I sort of had an epiphany this week. Actually epiphany's too strong a word. Brings to mind bright lights and choirs. No, I think it was more of just an affirmation. I have never before realised how strong the creative side of me was. Or rather, the need to be creative. I don't usually think of myself as a creative person, but this week, working at the machines, punching in numbers, pushing through sheets of wood, being bored out of my brain - it occurred to me how much enjoyment and, more import

Disenchanted

Well I was there on the day, they sold the cause for the queen. and when the lights all went out, we watched our lives on the screen. I hate the ending myself, but it started with an alright scene. My Chemical Romance   I'm not sure why I love the above lyrics. They're not really relevant. It's just that I've been listening to their album over and over, and I just keep going back to that song. They're not really happy lyrics, but I think that speak of a point of no return - the end of o

Just checking in

I'm too tired to write what I wanna talk about cause I do have some stuff to say but I dont think I have the energy to get it out.   I've now down two 9 hr days at the job I spoke about. Who though continual physical labour could be so difficult? Lol. I'm so lazy. But hey, lazy was fun. This kinda isn't. I'm used to retail. Customer are so much easier than this, even the shitty ones. I think the only thing that gets me through the day is the money at the end of it. Which isn't bad. I figure it

What a load of hoopla

So it appears all the fuss made by the massive fires coming down the mountains and destroying townships was all a bunch of nonsense. A cool change came the night that I wrote my last entry and the fires pretty much stopped in their tracks. I think they're still burning away but the firies have them under control. Another good thing that came last night was a drizzling of rain. This was especially good for us because they were going to start back burning....right out the front of our house....and

She'll be comin down the mountain

Dramas dramas dramas.   So let's step back to April - four months after we'd moved into our new house. Things had been going good. Until a pipe connecting the cold water tap in the upstairs bathroom split and basically sent at least 7 hours (no one was home - so this is the most possible time) of water flooding down the corridor, into my room, down the stairs and into the kitchen, living, dining and rumpus rooms. Kitchen ruined. Floor boards possibly warped.   Now, 7 months later. The whole

Do you still remember me alive...

So its November. Last month of spring (southern hemisphere here). Usually 30 degree celsius temperatures where I am. 15 effin degrees today. And hail. 4 separate times. And one of those times happens when I was running somewhere (I'll get to that later). What the frak is up with the weather lately? We've got snow in one part of the state and bushfires in another. Pfftt.   Its the last week of uni. Exam week. Luckily my course only has one exam this semester so thats pretty good. Had it today.

Still tired.

I figured I should introduce myself a bit more. I'm currently 20 (I was about to write 19, lol, takes some time to get used to, even though its been a few months) and male, if I didn't exactly make that clear in my last entry. I think that's important. Lol. Or maybe not? You tell me... I live (when I'm not at Uni, see below) about an hour west of Sydney, Australia, with Mum and Dad, my sister, Chrissy. There's also a dog (Flynn), three cats (Evey, Marmalade and Cosmo) and a bird (Sookie). Quite

Tired.

Oh my god. So exhausted. The last two days have been really heavy-going.   I'm not sure if anyone outside of Australia is aware of this but today was probably the biggest sporting day of the year in our country. Melbourne Cup. Yes, the biggest horse race of the year. What's all the fuss, you say? It's just a horse race? Well, I'm not really sure actually - I just think its one of those things that builds up. Its just one of those things. Now, your probably thinking I was in attendance - dress
