In the tiki tiki tiki room

In the midst of the search for my next job... Not sure where I'll end up living next year.
Joking about my dream destination, I'm thinking Honolulu -ahhhhhhhhh.
Gotta love Disney's take on Hawaii... In the tiki tiki tiki room.

Wah Wah

I've been pretty much without status. Ups and downs - like a wah wah modulation effect.
Gotta love the Wah Wah.

0 calorie

I had a diet pepsi this morning after our 9.00am turned 9.50am with the pediatrician.
Then straight to an internal job interview at 11. And I still feel a sugarless sugar daddy.
I tell you...0 calorie

in the city that never sleeps. definitely.

With a newborn at home, it was to be expected. She is actually good but the first week is tiring.

So with our New York Baby, we're in the city that never sleeps. definitely.

Braxton Hicks Fan

False alarm last night. Contractions every 5 minutes or so. 2 hours at the hospital.

Not that we plan to call the baby Marilyn...but just thought that's kind of where we are now with due date this week.
And who said you had to be all pastel blue/pink with babies... Wait till you see our baby card :)

Chips Ahoy addict

Yep, that's why I love America. Chips Ahoy. Better still, the ones with chocolate chunk.
Since I've arrived I have turned into a Chips Ahoy addict (again)

Hey Mickey you're so fine...

No reason.

looking for a Gibson LP Deluxe 1977 Gold Top

For my 30st birthday, I have decided to buy a vintage guitar. The one of my dream is a Gibson Les Paul Deluxe model with a characteristic Gold Top. From 1977 to match my birth year.
So far, I have been to music row on 48th street, to Matt Umanov in Greenwich Village and to Guitar Center on 14th st.  (and on ebay).
If you know where I can find this beauty around NY for a decent price (I haven't found a price tag under USD 3300), please post a comment. Meanwhile, I'm still looking for a Gibson LP Deluxe 1977 Gold Top.

New York, New York

Very exciting. I have arrived in the big city. I feel like I have to sing the song...
I'm gonna be a part of it, New York, New York.

Out of Australia

I'm leaving Australia in 30 mins. Writing this from the Qantas Business Lounge, gazing at the view of Sydney skyline. There hasn't been such a great weather in days but yesterday was great as well and I'll remember my last surfing sessions probably forever. I'm leaving when I was just getting good. or sort of. I'll have to come back, but for the time being, I'm Out of Australia.

the last wave

I'm just back from Bondi beach were I have had fabulous day of surfing.

I'm going to miss this in NY, especially the sun setting down over Bondi with the light going through the waves.

Will I be back soon? Who knows. For the moment this is my last wave.

smashed in Sydney

Ouh, i've just come back from a big drinking evening with colleagues (my farewell). Just posting this seems like pole vault in the Olympics.

Yeah mates, I'm smashed in Sydney .

glad he won't have to listen to Missy Higgins anymore!

Australian are quite obsessed with own-grown beetroot and own-produced music - so when you put the only music channel* on, it's always a Missy Higgins marathon... of course with a bit of Silverchair, Powderfinger and some for beetroot burgers - Aussies are not monsters, they are actually very nice people.

* (at least the only one I've got on my basic cable, Max)

I'm leaving in 2 days and I'll have great memory from my stay here... but your truly is glad he won't have to listen to Missy Higgins anymore!

very frequent flyer

In just one month (July 27th-Aug 27th), I have been flying from Sydney to Paris through Dubai, taken the Eurostar to London and back to Paris, driven to La Rochelle and back to Paris, then flown back to Sydney and I am now booking my flight to New York through LA.
By my non-Rockstar non-Consultant standards, I consider myself a very frequent flyer at the moment.

back down under, mate

I arrived early this morning and I should be sleeping by now but I have a bad case of blocked nose which the plane dry air made worse...

It feels strange to be here in winter cold after a week in south of France and my sun tan is clearly setting me apart.

I have mixed feeling about having to come back here for 2 weeks but still, I'm back down under, mate

outrageous accent

Just watching the Monthy Python and the Holy Grail. And there is this great scene (video) at the castle held by French soldiers...

King Arthur: Can we come up and have a look?
French Soldier: Of course not. You're English types.
King Arthur: What are you then?
French Soldier: I'm French. Why do you think I have this outrageous accent, you silly king?

I'm so sick that I can't even think of a better thing to put in my status...

So yours truly (in sickness and in health) is MIA

I fell sick with the same kind of mini-flu everybody around the office and the city seems to get - why does it have to be one of the coldest winter in Sydney in years just during the 6 months I'm here... Anyway,

I survived Friday 13

gone with the wind

Yes, that's it. After a good long evening with friends at a belgian beer café and a 8am conf' call start this morning, that's a good description of my current status:

& the famous 5

Loved the books. Just thinking of it, I have the TV series music coming back to mind.
Enid Blyton... what a curious name. It has always puzzled me and always will.

So, for today: & the famous 5
