Due Recognition for Pumpkins!

Day 1 after my job interview. Still got a bit of a buzz about. I am very happy with how the event panned out, but obviously I will have to wait a little and see what they actually think. There are, of course, things I could have done better, but I was still happy. I could know by Friday, but you never know with these things.

Exciting news! Today is a cause for celebration two times over. Maybe. One, its Halloween, and while we here in the Great Southern Land don't generally go for the whole trick or treat thing like our Yankee friends do, proper recognition of the humble pumpkin is something which is LOOONNNNGG overdue. That, and it's VANILLA ICE's BIRTHDAY!

Oh, and tomorrow (AUS time), the NBA season tips off, so if I start babbling about basketball at any length, you know why.

Apparently SBS is biased, and broadcasts smut and pornography. No...really? Dude...the only reason we WATCH SBS is because it is offensive, foreign and different. Don't shit on one of the only sources of quality tee vee we have, just because you can't be assed reading subtitles. Grrr hiss to you, buddy!

Flush Damn You!

The loo here at work doesn't flush properly, causing me some distress at times. Because I sure as hell don't want to leave parts of my DNA just sitting there in a porcelain bowl where anyone could come along and...you know...do something dodgy. It's a worry, I tell you now!

All of our Canada bookings have been confirmed so woo hoo to us! I will update details soon on http://davevscanada.travellerspoint.com. Apologies for the fact it requires you to log in to comment - but you really don't care do you?!

Big weekend planned so far, plenty of quality hip hop to take in. Tongiht I head down to Saint Kilda for OBESE BLOCK PARTY 3. Featuring the following: Hilltop Hoods, Bias B, Funkoars, Layla, Pegz, Muph & Plutonic, Hyjak n Torcha, Drapht, Reason, Jase, Art Of War, Brotha Black.

Going to be a heck of a night...and I know NO ONE who is going, so could be interesting!

And then backing up again Saturday night to see Jay Z's first Melbourne concert. A very tired Sunday looks likely! :D

But I reckon theres a group of people who are going to be way more tired than I am. The PR section of the company who thought it was a tops idea to sell a pole dancing kit as a toy!!

The Peekaboo pole-dancing kit, which has a "sexy garter" to help "unleash the sex kitten inside" was sold in Tesco Direct's toys and games section, the Daily Mail newspaper reported.

"Soon you'll be flaunting it to the world and earning a fortune in Peekaboo Dance Dollars," its blurb reads.

"Unleash the sex kitten inside ... simply extend the Peekaboo pole inside the tube, slip on the sexy tunes and away you go!"

This made my weekend. Just remember, there is always someone out there stupider than you!

Mafia House

...as distinct from the recent film "Monster House".

Without trying to attract myself too much heat here, I think there is a Mafia house near where I live presently. "Why do you say that, Hatman?" I hear the masses cry. Well let me tell you. It's grotty, small, unkempt and perpetually up for sale. It's one of those "fake brick" units that everyone thought were such a top idea in the 1970s. There is no garden, plenty of dust and crap paving out the front...and a bevy of SHINY, LUXURY CARS! There is the new, black, Holden HSV ute. The yellow Holden Monaro. The black BMW. All there, at various times. CONCLUSIVE PROOF that someone who takes Marlon Brandon a little too seriously is considering launching an alcohol cartel from a brown unit.

A weak link I know, but that's all I got.

The other thing I got (or "have" as the grammar nazis would have you believe) is a boules set, shiny yet subtle in its beauty. So we have been playing boules at work non stop these past few days, thus making work exponentionally more managable.

Oh, and I've gone back to original blogging Dave. Yes, I will shortly be putting my LiveJournal on a semi-permanent hiatus, focussing on this 'ere blog...plus a myspace...plus my occasional haiku blog...plus the forthcoming DAVE VS CANADA travel blog (which in turn will domiante proceedings between Dec 10 and Jan 8). Anyways, you get the picture.

And.....we're back.

Exciting news George Clooney fans, it appears the G-Train has either just scored himself new percription glasses, or clocked himself on the bedside table one morning. Because there is no other way to describe this outburst regarding Clive Owen:

"I think he's a movie star...He's like, a man - there's a sexuality and a masculinity that I think is really interesting."

Well Thank The Lord for George! He's really opened up my eyes to the world!

Speaking of opening things up...I'm currently planning a grand skiing trip to Canada with my father and am doing my research for accommodation. Apparently, the room I am interested in comes with a number of appealing features. Take a look:
