You Light Up My Life

It is winter time here in Sydney, and though this means that it is still warmer than most places in summer, I am getting into the winter spirit. Sometimes the house does get so cold that it actually reminds me of real winters in the great white north (aka motherland) and recently I have even been feeling like Christmas is coming?!?!

Confusing, I know! So whether it be June or January, I am succumbing to this so called "winter" here in Australia and getting into all that she brings. A few weeks ago we went to check out the VIVID light festival that went alongside the music fest that was curated by the one and only Brian Eno. We didnt get to see any of the music, cause we were out of town for most of it, but we did take in some of the bright lights in the big city...

The historic reenactment of a ship catching fire beneath the Harbour bridge.

The MCA lit up in light designs by Yayoi Kusama

Disguised as Gotham city

Oli serenaded us on the baby grand piano which was hooked up to an incredible tea cup light show...magical

And of course, the Opera House has never looked better!

So winter is here and we are ready to drink mulled wine, sit by the fire and go tobogganing! Obviously just joking about the tobogganing, but not the mulled wine and fire!

Ahhhhhye Should be Ashamed of Myself! feat Gay Bash

I am so so so sorry! ごめんなさい!!!

I cannot believe my own behavior, or lack thereof. It has been over 2 weeks since I blogged and I am in big trouble. Life in the land of Make Believe has been so insane with interviews, and meetings and production....time escaped me.

And now for my final excuse; we went down to Melbourne last weekend for a little business and pleasure and let me tell you, I dipped into the pleasure a little too much. From dumplings, to galleries, to tequilla shooters, to gettin' deep down dirty dancing on the floor, and dancing on benches and DJ booths and wine bottle after wine bottle....lets just say one thing led to another and "POOF" my prized camera is no longer in my possession. grrrrrr!

So, since leaving my camera and my dignity at the infamous Cell Block themed "Gay Bash" party....I have been too ashamed to even think about writing a blog without photos. So I borrowed a few from our friends at Gay Bash....Thank you!!!

We got to the party and could not believe Nick was not even in organizer in a mere t-shirt and jeans. Unacceptable! We threw him behind the DJ booth and proceeded to lock him into a straight jacket and douse him in fake blood, which we are all still washing off!


My two leading ladies...Ebony and Gill with the inmate. I am nowhere to be found...only one photo documented my whereabouts that evening, and I discovered it on Joseph Tenni's cell phone last night. Wonder what on earth I was up to?!?!?!

Fashion Hayley. A true gem! This girl put up with me all night and we are still friends...this world needs more stellar gals just like you!

The best DJs to grace the decks....Jasmine and Miriam were such great party animals and patient cellmates....I cannot even believe what they let me get away with on stage. Me pretending to DJ and be the life of the party, them dancing away. So good!

So there you have it. My secrets and lies. And don't you fret, we will be back at ya before you know it and if I haven't found my camera yet, I will start sketching some incredible pictures of our daily Make Believe adventures!
