On Air

Went to the Earthdance launch party on Saturday night after work. Was bloody fun. Caught up with so many doofers, danced my arse off, drank lots of beer. The highlight for me was when I picked up my beer from the ledge on the DJ booth, I caught the eye of the DJ and gave him a thumbs down, pulled a sour face, let him know that the music he was playing sucked arse. The dance floor was rammed and the music was excellent. He totally fell back laughing. Gave one of those clutch the sides, head-tipped back, hearty jobs. It was bloody satisfying. Does it get any better than making someone laugh like that? He's a friend, just not one that I know all that well. Glad he was on the right wavelength.

Ooh - if you live in Australia, pick up a copy of the current issue of Men's Health. Page 96, feature about tattoos by me. It's my second feature for them, both have been outside their regular story types, which is satisfying.

Right. Have to try to put my links back after this silly business with blogger going down.

Fuck, I keep forgetting to go into a newsagent. Thanks for the reminder.

Cool. You don't have to buy it if you don't want, you can just read it and put it back. And in fact you don't even have to do that if you don't want to. I might be a sweaty perv, but I'm not demanding.

Yeah, I know, it feels great to make a body laugh.

So your writing career is taking off, eh? Gooood.

My writing career is not really taking off so much as just stumbling along. I'm happy to be getting as much work as I do because I went for a long time learning the hard way and not getting anything except knockbacks. Little things happen that make me think that I am moving forward, but really, I'd need a story like the Men's Health one each week, then I'd be sitting pretty.

Not that money is the ultimate measure, and I am grateful for my small achievements. A reviewer at a party a few weeks back heard that I was there and asked The Dreaded One to introduce us because she always enjoys my reviews. How do you put a price on a compliment like that? It really made my night.
