My teenage pop idol, Brian Mannix (who?), the lead singer of 80’s Melbourne rock/pop group the Uncanny X-Men was on Spicks and Specks tonight. What a thrill to see him after all these years. He didn’t look too worst for wear actually. The last time I saw him was at Star City Showroom because he was the producer of “Countdown, The Musical” in the late 90’s. It was one of our first “cultural” outings (ie, not going to a techno party) when Dave and I were courting.
Hey, who sent me a copy of the Pointer Sisters Greatest Hits to my dad’s house???
Today I got 2 needles & a small filling from the dentist. It cost $240, of which I could claim $77 back from my private health fund. I know I could go to a “cheaper” dentist but I’m used to him, been seeing him for 10 years. It’s a very professional setup, hygenic and I know I’m in good hands. His daughter is in the same private school class as my Dad’s business partner’s daughter – ain’t that nice. I’m contributing to the education of Australian youth then.
Today I got my ears pierced (again). The first time was in 1990, but they got infected and I let them close up after a year. The “procedure” was done at a beauty/hair/piercing salon in Parramatta Westfield. My brother whom accompanied me was concerned because the only certificates on the wall showed the staff’s qualifications in nose, tongue and belly button piercing, but not ears! Anyway, it’s done now and I have the anti-septic stuff to spray on and I’m twirling them hygienically.
My sister-in-law Rebecca married Chris in a beautiful garden ceremony at the Hunter Valley. A lunch reception followed afterwards. The bride looked so happy & beautiful, see pics here
Congratulations Rebecca & Chris!
Well, I’m really tired but contented. Putting on parties is such a pain in the ass but also a lot of fun. You’d think after being involved with organising events since 1991, I’d be over it eh? We could have had more people, but with only about 2 weeks promotion it wasn’t too bad. The “Jack-Off” was hilarious, some people are not shy at all! The illuminated podium – what a sensational touch! It was great hear all the old classics and see some awesome old-school hip house styled outfits. See my pics here. OR In The Mix pics here.
