Today I met Alf Stewart…

...And I honestly feel like a little chapter of my life is complete. As the rest of Sydney (or at least its pre-teen population) sobbed into their Hello Kitty tissues over the cancellation of a Justin Bieber-based day of media mingling and his concert/shameless public display of child abuse, one of my dreams came true. Although I too may have obsessed over teenage heroes in my youth, specifically Joey from New Kids on the Block, it was Alf I raced...Read More

I always thought I’d make a good paparazzi…

...but after today I know I was wrong. Very wrong. At one point, as I was standing on the deck watching Kim Kardashian step off a boat, a big man stood on my foot. Another knocked my pathetically small camera and another turned as he was zooming past me to shout: “If you wanna be a pap, you’ve got to run!!!”Eff off, I thought. I don’t run for anyone. Patronizing bastard. She was rather beautiful, in an overly made-up, orange...Read More

I just woke up from the weirdest dream…

...which may or may not have been a result of eating half a chocolate rabbit for dinner, after getting back from work at 10pm, (it’s the dairy products, so I’m told). I can’t remember the start of it, but basically I was out with mum, dad and a younger version of my brother (back when he was 11 I reckon), when a giant tsunami struck. It swept us up… and instead of screaming for her life and demonstrating the ultimate...Read More

This week I’ve been thinking…

...rather a lot about working on a farm. Everyone I’ve told this to so far has furrowed their brow and dipped their chin in the same disparaging fashion, but their cynicism is only making me want to do it more. Screw them all; I think I’d be a great farmer! Of course… I wouldn’t want to muck shit or milk cows, or wake up at 4.30am to harvest crops, or lug a hoe about. If anyone’s gonna lug a hoe...Read More

Electrifying encounters…

So here I am, drinking my coffee, checking up on Perez Hilton, when I get an early morning text message from The Electrician. It’s kind of taken me by surprise… I mean, I never thought I’d hear from him again. It’s been a whole week. But the text reads: “Are we cool? I kind of thought you’d call.”I’m angry. I’m really quite angry that he’d say this, because this is a guy who just last Sunday, accused me of being...Read More

Scariest woman alive…

My friend just sent me this video of a very, very scary woman, who he said will be me in 20 years. I think it'll be more like 10 years if I keep working late nights. Someone's lost a mum/gran/sister/aunt to this mess of a human being though. Very sad.Taken from my blog! beckywicksblog.blogspot.com Follow me on twitter: bex_wicks

A is for Alphabetised CDs… (another online dating disaster)

The date I had last night was an hour and a half of my life I will never get back. Seriously. I’m getting a bit sick of online dating now if I’m honest. When I first activated my profile, I thought the free site ‘Oasis Active’ was a gateway to all sorts of exciting adventures, a wonderland if you will, full of interesting men all dying to wine me, dine me and,… well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I couldn’t...Read More

Waiting on armpits…

It's been a while since I've blogged - I started one last summer but only lasted a few posts because I happened to choose the most complicated fucking blog host in the entire world, so I'm coming back to blogspot, who served as a trusy companion for a few years before I switched to livejournal, after which Dubai banned me altogether from the blogosphere! Swines! Maybe I can fish my old blogs from wherever they're lurking in cyberspace at some...Read More
