Adventure, baby!


Going Hard Core

I went back to climbing last night. First climb in three months with Kate. I had jelly arms after the third climb. I followed it up with my first personal training class today with Lisa. I am officially going to die I am in so much pain. I hope that after a few more sessions I will be almost as fit as the Shellbinator.

Belle Fleur at Rozelle

Alec, Daniel and I drove to Rozelle markets to check out some bargains.

Vintage cameras. Film! ooohh!

Daniel and Alec discuss the finer points of … something or another.

Gratuitous Weimaraner dog shot.

This is the point where Daniel and Alec were considering leaving me behind so they could fit the wine rack Daniel is checking out into the car.

WTF is with the tongue?

Bargains! Ohhhh!

At Belle Fleur, Daniel ogles the Belgium town hall made entirely of chocolate. 50 hours of love went into this creation.

Telescope made out of chocolate.


Turtle Power

Alec made me a deal – he’d download me Finding Jane, the new Jane Austin movie, if I saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with him. I help up my end of the bargain and saw TNMT with Alec and Daniel this week. What a blast from the past. The graphics were pretty cool, but it wasn’t as funny as I was hoping for.

I highly appreciated the turtle-on-turtle action, with Raphael and Leonardo facing off in battle (Raph won), but I wanted more of Michaelangelo, my fave turtle when I was a kid. The movie reminded me a lot of Ghostbusters. Demons attacking the city, gargoyles on tops of buildings coming to life, a green vortex spinning into the sky… Splinter also reminded me of a combination of Mr Miagui from Karate Kid and Yoda. Not the most original of movies – high on nostalga value though.

Pink in Concert

I saw Pink last night at the Entertainment Centre with Tanya and Karina for her “I’m Not Dead” Australian tour.

It was only a small group – Pink, three dancers, two backup singers and a band – but the show went off.

Highlights of the show:

*During Stupid Girls Pink dressed up as Lindsay Lohan, with her back-up dancers dressing as Paris and Nicky Hilton.

*Hard core acrobatics with Pink suspended from the ceiling.

*The song Dear Mr President sang along with clips of the Iraq war and George W Bush looking like an idiot.

*The singing of my fave Pink song Family Portrait even though it’s not new at all anymore.

*Finishing the show off with Let’s Get This Party Started – it made me want to dance!

Not so highlight moments:

*A woman near us sitting on someone’s shoulders and taking her top off. Don’t flash your boobs at Pink lady! She’s not gay!

*The huge unit of a guy in front of us filming the entire show on his mobile phone. Just enjoy the music dude!

*Leaving my camera on my bedside table. Idiot!
