Destination: HOME. Brokeback Bloomington – Actually Normal, IL (or is it?) Inspiration: Mom Banicki booked my flight from LA to Chicago back in November when I kept extending my Australia trip. Actualization: Christmas Eve at the Banicki’s is always entertaining. This year the comedy comes from the dogs and Grandma…sometimes a combination of both. Brother […]
Destination: Great Barrier Reef Inspiration: Donald Sutherland. Need I say more? Donald Sutherland “the Great Barrier Reef? If that’s where you’ll be go out in the water on a boat to the ‘Potato Hole’. Just from the boat, without even going in, you can see more fish than you can imagine. But swim. Dive. Even […]
Kim and I head to DisneyLand AKA The Grove 90 minutes early to hold seats for the group of ladies(which end up being 1 lady) we’d rounded up to join for the movie on opening night.
Erica and I lose track of time on the precore at Equinox laughing and telling stories from the night before. 90 minutes later, covered in sweat, and stomach sore from laughing while running, we are like new again. Ready to toxify yet again.
I haven’t even made the boat yet. I’m sitting here at the airport trying not to cry. I can’t really because everyone’s laughing at me. I’m wearing a santa hat I got at Sluttingham Palace last night. Slutttingham palace was described to me by a 22-year old girl as a place “owned by 3 old guys (um 35) who had parties to get girls.” She also thought I was 24. I’m thinking it was the hat, so I’ll keep it on and be 24.
It’s not whale season, you say? Who cares? Tell me to see whales and I’ll show you whales. James Franco moment turns Mission Pineapple Express in Brisbane. As you read the below, note some fav quotes from the movie and how they paralleled our trip. Except we don’t have pot to use as an excuse.
If you are in Los Angeles, I’m asking for your support to donate and attend a benefit for the Angkor Hospital for Children. Although I won’t be home in time to be there, I am hoping you’ll be inspired to donate and go!
The first time I tried to make this moment, I got lost in the city walking everywhere BUT the actual street Govindas was on. I’ve realized , and this is NO EXAGGERATION, the Aussies always WANT to help but literally 9 times out of 10 make up the answer to your question and HOPE that they might be right. Not kidding. It’s happened at least 27 times now.
After my facial, I felt unstoppable and decided to go with the momentum of my productive day. So despite my oily hair and no makeup I started walking back towards town. Next stop, one of Jerry O’Connell’s favorites from the time he spent in Sydney working on KANGAROO JACK! The Establishment still had quite the business despite the fact it had been a while since Jerry was there.
