When I was working in the Public Service some people from Canberra came to our Perth office one time and it turned out one of them had lived in Woomera at the same time as I had. Even though it was a small place where you knew, or knew of most people, neither of us remembered each other, probably because he would've been a young school kid and I was working.

The dispiriting thing was that this bloke much younger than me had risen to the executive ranks whilst my career had been more...modest. It's one of the reasons I avoid reunions, and the "what have you done with your life, mate?" questions.

Dyls I am re-reading blood meridian and I guess I should read Moby Dick next? Please advise
Those were both pretty exhausting reads. It'll take me decades to go back to Blood Meridian. Pick up a couple of chapters of Moby Dick here and there if you wanna. I just read Journey to the End of the Night which might be the most cynical thing ever written. It gets my thumbs right up.

I’m the exact opposite - everyone seems to remember me but I don’t recall them. I’m like a leaf floating on top of the current of time.

Like the time I was in a tattoo parlour in Hindley Street cause my friends wanted to get nipple piercings and the girl behind the counter, with more piercings and tats than a bikie, goes “Hey, don’t I know you from somewhere?”

“Err, do you?”

“You went to such and such college, didn’t you?”

It was at that point I realised who she was. If I was how I am now, I would have handled that situation a lot differently, cause she was trying to talk to me but I was a babe to badness at the time.

Didn’t help that one of my friends passed out from getting a piercing at that point, either.
If you worked in porn you would be your own fluffer.

Was just asked if I wanted to do the Zoom thing for Channel 7.

I turned it down, if I'm home watching footy I'm in my underpants with a whiskey!

Nobody wants to see that!
Janus needs to do it at his mates place that has the demonic portal.

How did you get asked? I agree nobody would be interested in watching me Rage one second... doing a happy dance the next... and in between trying to get head of the mrs...

Speaking of which, I have an update on that - apparently that house has had something going on since he moved in there. It just got progressively worse and worse...first his son saw a door handle moving up and down...then he woke up to the sound of his refrigerator door alarm going off because it had swung open...until one night where it wasn't just footsteps that he could hear outside in his kitchen, but something was banging down his bedroom door. The first time in his life he's been scared for his life, he says.

But it's getting weaker now, he reckons. In fact, he says that the night where it touched both his girlfriend and I (in the same spot - the right hand side of the torso) was the last time anything supernatural happened in the house. He reckons it might have passed on to one of us.

Well it didn't pass on to me. I wear a sterling silver pentagram at all times for that exact reason.

We kind of wonder if it isn't some kind of murder house. The spirit box is always talking about going outside...and there are fruit trees and a lawn outside that grow really well without any kind of fertiliser...

I'd like to see feel do it sitting on the couch with arms folded, sack hinkley sign ready to hold up when we inevitably do something foolish
