Paint a Portrait

$30 on art supplies… easy!

It’s wed night, date night… in usual fashion I’ve left it to the last minute. I jump on the $30 Date Night site and start clicking madly through the date suggestions when I stumble upon “paint a portrait of each other – Submitted by Ming from Melbourne.” Perfect, this is tonight’s date, thanks Ming!

Where, oh, where did my date night go?

For anyone keeping count, you may notice that it was Den’s date night turn last week. You may also notice there is no post from Den. That’s right, there was no date night. Sigh.

Something that made you go “woah, that’s a little strange!” Like when you first noticed your partner’s walk… or a laugh that made you kinda go “thats a little different” I learned something new about Emma on our “play pool in a [...]

Denis, NAKED TWISTER is not a first date!

So I’m introduced to this sexy semi-blonde girl at a Hotel convention, “Denis, you must meet this person… she could possibly send some business your way…” I’m thinking ‘$$$’ brilliant! Like seriously, how f-u-c-k-i-n-g hard is it to run a start up and feed yourself at the same time!?!?!?! It’s mid 2004, I’m living in [...]
