Where The Wild Things Are

The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind and another. His mother called him “WILD THING!” and Max said “I’LL EAT YOU UP!” so he was sent to bed without eating anything. That very night in Max’s room a forest grew and grew- and grew until his ceiling hung with vines and the walls became the world all around and an ocean tumbled by with a private boat for Max and he sailed off through night and day and in and out of weeks and almost over a year to where the wild things are. And when he came to the place where the wild things are they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws- till Max said “BE STILL!” and tamed them with a magic trick of staring into their yellow eyes without blinking once and they were frightened and called him the most wild thing of all and made him king of all wild things. “And now,” cried Max, “let the wild rumpus start!” “Now stop!” Max said and sent the wild things off to bed without their supper. And Max the king of all wild things was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all. Then all around from far away across the world he smelled good things to eat so he gave up being king of where the wild things are. But the wild things cried, “Oh please don’t go- we’ll eat you up- we love you so!” And Max said, “No!” The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled theur terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws but Max stepped into his private boat and waved good-bye and sailed back over a year and in and out of weeks and through a day and into the night of his very own room where he found his supper waiting for him- and it was still hot.

Just For The Record

Just For The Record

Just For The Record is a blog written by a great friend of mine, who is almost as funny as she thinks she is. 😛

Please check out her blog and support her in her new efforts!



If you have found this site blog please contact me immediately – you will be my first (possibly last) visitor and even if it’s accidental I would like to thank you personally…because you are possibly proof miracles and sympathy site visits do happen.

This entire blog started from being told I was hilarious – not just funny … funny people stay on Facebook – I am apparently hilarious… first lesson of this fun filled page – do not build up the mildly talented – they will take your confidence in them and create multimillion dollar blogs … don’t look at me like that … it could happen.

My boyfriend has told me there are free blog sites … I was half way through purchasing this site when he told me – it’s like he hasn’t even met me… I will put a lot of money into something before I know…

Where have I been?

Random photo to prove that yes, I have been busy.

So, anyone who has stumbled upon this little blog AND who has been foolish enough to attempt to follow it would know that it has been a little over a year since I have written anything for it.

I’m pretty sure that I posted a warning somewhere about how infrequent posts could end up being…

Anyway… since my last post I have:

  • posted a number of dining reviews for and
  • helped in the process of bringing another midget into the world
  • gave up on dragonboating as I couldn’t commit the time to training since moving back to the Gold Coast
  • been working on new software (at work) to replace the product that we have been providing professional services for for over 10 years
  • been to the Colorado, USA twice (VERY COOL) for training on the new product
  • working like crazy to gear up the business to “step up to the next level”
  • stopped writing dining reviews because I just have not had the time to do it justice
  • oh, and have completely ignored this blog!

So, as you can see, I have been pretty busy.  Most importantly, now that we are a family of four, I have been very much trying to focus as much time as I can on the upbringing of my two incredible kids, keeping my amazing wife sane, whilst trying to secure our future financially… and it has been bloody exhausting! LOL

So, I am not going to make a commitment to update this blog on a regular basis, but I will be writing of things interesting to myself from time to time. If, by some stretch of the imagination, you find these posts interesting and/or informative, please drop me a comment and let me know.  Everyone loves to know when their rambling interests others… it separates us from that crazy guy that hangs around outside of the local Seven Eleven, with a stuffed Aardvark on his shoulder, mutting about the “End of the World is Nigh”. 😛

Happy Reading!

PS – I have changed the website’s theme as I am no longer trying to impress Telstra to be a part of their Windows Phone 7 Social Review (I feel pretty dirty for even attempting that).

PPS (or is it PSS??) – I had to be honest with myself and remove the “dragon boating” element from the site’s by-line, since I no longer participate in the sport…. actually, I am not participating in ANY sport, which is something that I really need to rectify at some point.
