So I wrote a big long blog on Friday last week and the internet ATE it. Or I took to long to do it and the page timed out. Normally I copy it before I hit post. guess I won’t be making that mistake again!
So the last two weeks.. I actually have to get my calendar out cos I can’t remember everything. I write this diary blog so that I don’t forget my life, cos sometimes it all turns into one big blur..
So the end of November was all a big lead up to Halloween. I had cocktail training on wednesday the 22nd… I can now make the most fabulous Choctini, Appletini and Strawberry Daqurie…. I’m going to order the ingredients in bulk so I can make punch bowls full of it!
Friday the 24th was an “Internet Awards Party” Even little new zealand has its own scene!! Funniest moment ever – sitting on the couch at the end yelling at people that they were at an Internet party IRL. Gosh could we sound any nerdier?!
Oh yea did I mention I won 5 awards? When I wrote the last blog I posted a picture for each one, but I can’t be bothered this time round. It was hillarious, and cos I was in such a great mood I even ended up giving two of my awards away to other people who were in the same category. I love to share. No one ever got to the top being a backstabbing bitch!
Best Scene Personality, Exhibitionist, Most Photogenic, Best Dress Up Costume and The Raving Mad Award. – gosh!
Saturday the 25th was Armageddon… Working there one day for Nocturne Magazine… It was a heap of fun. I even dressed down.. but it was fun hanging out with good friends and helping out!
Sunday (its was a long weekend) 26th I had a very busy day. Cocktail waitressing at a halloween party (even the oldies dressed up) From there I headed to a good friends of mine and grabbed a bite to eat! Baked smoked salmon – oh DEVINE.. second only to smoked trout! Then I headed to a party called “Enlightened” It was a great time and very well put on party!
Monday was all about recovery! I think I caught a chill as I’ve not been feeling so wonderful since.
Thrusday 30th was a small bite of what I’d love to be doing every day. I had a Photoshoot with a friend of mine up from Christchurch, http://www.paintingwithlight.co.nz/ depending on how the photos come out I might use one a the calendar Centrefold! We’ll just have to see! Then from there I popped up the road and helped choregraphy the last minute of a show girl routine for http://www.queenwholeuniverse.com/ then I rushed down to the Auckland university studios for a photoshoot of the Midnight Rock n Roll Circus girls for my “Club Kid and Friends” 2009 Calendar Here.

I have photoshoots organised for 3 dates coming up in November, another photographer working on two more and 3 or 4 more to organise before the end of december. I know exactly what I want, and will make sure it happens!
Halloween was fun… Its a shame trick or treating isn’t a bigger thing here. I think people are so wrapped up in being safety conscious its ruined it a little… Partys are great but never make the full package.
I’ve always loved being creative. Weather its designing, decorating, creating painting scrapbooking or writing. On the saturday just gone I helped create a jungle. For a small budget it turned out really well..! If I had to do it again I would have had more people to help and more trees! Haha… the 6am pack down was amusing with a drunk promoter, but getting out of bed after 3 hours sleep was NOT fun!
Next year is the big trip… I’m more and more excited every day. Three summers in a row and 4 and a half months of traveling around the world!
