Talk about neglect.

It seems I’ve been neglecting my blog a bit lately, so I’m going to fix that with a new post.

It’s my 20th birthday tomorrow. Not overly excited about it, really, but it should be a good day. I’m not doing anything special; just gonna hang out with Jacki and enjoy life. That’s my plan. And all I want from people is love and happiness. So long as people are spreading love and happiness on my birthday wherever they may be, I’ll be happy. So happy birthday to me!

Which also means, that in a few days, Spider has been a part of our family for a year. The 22nd, I believe. So we’ll be celebrating that one as his “birthday” at home. I may post some photos of Spider in a party hat or something. Wouldn’t that be cute? Haha.

In other news, not much is happening. Still nobody has given me a job, so I made my own. I started my own lawn mowing business. That’s right, bitches, I made my own god damn job. Take that, everybody-who-turned-me-down-for-a-job. Now instead of making money for someone else, I’m just making money for me. Woo.

Oh, and as for the Australian Federal Election last week…no.

That’s it for now. I’ll probably post again tomorrow for my birthday, but then again I may not. I’ll definitely post for Spider’s birthday, though. It’s been too long since I posted about everybody’s favourite little furball.

Bye for now.

Another little dedication…

So I have a girlfriend. But she’s not just my girlfriend. She’s more than that. Much more.

Her name is Jacki, and she is the most beautiful person on the planet, with more love in her heart than anybody I’ve ever known. And I mean that to the fullest extent.

Look, once again, I’m failing with words to describe my feelings about something. The point I’m trying to get to is that I love Jacki more than anything in the world. She is amazing and I’m so glad she’s in my life.

Here’s her blog. And this is my part of the internet dedicated to her.

I love you, Jacki.

You heard the man. Bebo is growing up.

Oh, you haven’t heard?

For those of you who have Bebo, when was the last time you checked your account? Go on. I dare you. Check your account. You may be in for a bit of a surprise.

In other news, I’m very damn tired. Can’t sleep very much at all lately. Partially to Spider, of course, who doesn’t stop whining and scratching the bedroom door if you leave him out of the bedroom at night. I mean, I love the little guy, but he’s impossible to sleep with. Always walking around and jumping on furniture and knocking things off the shelves. And then there’s the sleeping on your face – not cool, man. Not cool.

Anyway, I’m off. I’m about to fall asleep.

Goodb…zzzzzZZZZZ

My little Spider

This is my cat, Spider.

A little under a year ago, my girlfriend and I moved from Brisbane down to Kyogle, NSW. 2 days after we moved in, we were introduced to this little guy by my girlfriend’s step-mum. He was such a cute, energetic little thing, and I pretty much fell in love with him. The following day, he moved in with us. Just like that.

He was a perfect introduction to our new house. Despite the mess of the house, he got along very well with our other cat, Storm. And since then, the two of them have bonded together like brother and sister. Here’s a photo of the two of them asleep on the lounge yesterday

Aren’t they cute? That’s Spider there, all stretched out, with Storm’s face snuggled in under his belly. Yeah. We have cute cats.

My relationship with Spider has improved my life significantly. Before I met Spider, I didn’t really have much of a thing for cats. Been more of a dog person, really. You see, I’ve never been allowed to have a cat before I’d moved out because my dad is allergic, so when I moved in with my girlfriend last year, it was the first time I’d lived with a cat.

But when we got Spider, I experienced something I’d never really imagined I’d feel. I made a connection with a cat. This little cat.

Every day, without fail, this little cat brightens my day. If I’m sitting down, he’s on my lap, purring away. And he’ll always fall into the smallest places. He’s just so perfect.

But that’s not even it. Because of how much this cat loves me, he’s shown me that love is something that’s stronger than just an emotion or a word. It’s a connection between 2 beings. A connection that is rare between those 2 beings. And in this case, Spider and myself.

I love this cat, to the ends of the world and I can honestly say that if I hadn’t been introduced to this cat when we moved down to NSW, things would’ve been a lot harder for me.

So this is my little post in honor of Spider. His little part of the internet. Because he deserves it.

He’s sitting on a spoon. A spoon. Maybe he’s thinking about using that spoon to get the Dolmio pasta sauce out of that jar. Hmmm…

You see what I mean about falling into the smallest spaces? Spider isn’t comfortable if he doesn’t look uncomfortable.

That’s a piece of carrot on his foot. But he doesn’t mind.

This is my cat, Spider.

He’s very special to me.

My Spiderman.

Heed the sign that says “BEWARE THE BEAST OF PIRATE’S BAY!!”

Off to see Voltaire tonight in Brisbane.

No, not the famous philosopher, I mean the animating, singing, dancing, writing, toy making, short film shooting Voltaire.

Try here.

Anyway, I’m pretty excited. I can’t wait! I’ve been looking forward to August 1st for months now and it’s finally here! YAY!

Except, I have to drive to Brisbane and it just started raining (literally, as I just wrote that sentence).

I’ll let you know if I survive the trip.

Ciao.

The Amazing John Butler

So I came across this video last night, thanks to my older sister Karina, of the 2012 studio version of OCEAN by John Butler.

And holy shit, he blew my freakin’ mind.

When someone mentions great acoustic guitar players, you might think of names like Chet Atkins or (unfortunately) Tommy Emmanuel. Even some lesser known names, like Jon Gomm (look up his song “Passionflower”). However, it was only last night that I realised how great a guitarist John Butler is. I mean, I knew he was pretty amazing, but last night just blew my fucking mind.

And I think that this should be seen by more people. John Butler is not given enough credit for how incredible his guitar playing is.

So here’s my little bit. Watch this video.

Oh, and while you’re at it, trying to pick the pieces of your mind off the wall, check this out. This is Jon Gomm with “Passionflower”.

Enjoy, and have a nice day.

🙂
