Snapshots from the last cruise! Clockwise from left, 1) a brief chill in Vanuatu; 2) my partner in crime for the week, comedian Mad Mike Bennett; 3) my adopted “daughter” onboard, Joanne; 4) some onboard bling; and centre, cabaret sensation Trevor Jones, magician extraordinaire Ben Murphy and moi.
Cruising. Coming back to the fam. Rehearsing. Writing the new show. Gigging (a shiteload!). Drowning in a messy house. Attempting to bake gingerbread houses and failing gloriously. Family Christmas parties.
I AM ONE SPOILED TURD.
Seriously. My sister asked me recently “how come you didn’t post much on Facebook while you were away?” Honestly, the truth is that I feel like if I do that, posting pics of what an incredible time I’m having (I LOVE cruising, love the audiences, love the travel element, love having somebody make my bed for me and not having to cook a damn thing) then I’m gonna be making people feel bad by rubbing their noses in it.
But…she (and a coupla others) have implored me to share anyway. So…I’m sharing anyway.
Not just cruise pics but pics from the past week or so, which has been wonderfully busy in all the right ways. Seriously. I am so privileged and I don’t want to ever forget it. In light of this week’s horrific headlines I’ve thought about it more than usual. I am so lucky. I am so lucky. I am so lucky.
The colour of that water still makes me squeal.
Would you be interested in more detailed posts about what it’s like cruising? Again, I feel like it actually is so cool and such a world unto itself it would make for some cool posts, but again, there’s that whole “nyah nyah ne nyah nyah” element I feel self-conscious about!
And some just from round here since getting back:
The Betties did a gig and we had the same dressing room PRINCE had last time he was in Oz. AGGGGGHHHH!
Upon discovering this news, I proceeded to attempt to soak up as many Prince germs as possible.
Pink hair all ready for Woodford! The Betties also had some lovely christmas sing-time in the Queen Street Mall.
And caught up with my bro.
Now off for more.
