Vampires

I suspect vampires. I do. I haven’t read any vampire fiction, but I’ve watched all of Buffy and I saw Interview with the Vampire at the cinema, but I turned up late and my friends went in without me and I sat up the back by myself. I’m not some...

Corporate graffiti?

On a trip to Newtown, wondering what to eat, aimlessly shuffling between Noodle House and Chinese Noodle House, but not really feeling like noodles, I came across this. I HATE OPTUS but vodafone is nice! Corporate graffiti? Or exercising the right to voice your opinion in a public place?

Ring My Bell

Going for a walk to Kings Cross on Sunday, my pal and I found ourselves at Woollomooloo. It happens.

V-Wall Tavern, Nambucca Heads 1

V-Wall Tavern, Nambucca Heads

We took two days off work and headed up the north coast to Nambucca Heads for a weekend of camping, fishing and beering. We nailed the camping part, and, of course, we totally nailed the beering part, but we found the fishing part a little difficult. The locals in the...
