A (sea)horse of a different color

20 Oct

Happy birthday Molly and Katie.
I’m slightly behind but I’m going to pretend that I’m not.

Here is a link to when our heroes sat in their car/on their beds/in their kitchen eating wheatbix: https://www.facebook.com/sammi.travis.7/media_set?set=a.10100588566395159.1073741856.13807789&amp

And here are a dozen more Australian photos:

Good use of surfboard.

I’d be beside myself with joy but there wasn’t enough room in the car.

I love sports

“No one likes the soccer players” said my wrestling tour guide at the Australian Institue of Sport.

This cake tastes strange. Is there an anti-caking agent in it?



Kangaroo burger.
There are more calories in the world than people.

The Little Death deserves a mention: Currently in theaters, I’ve seen it 3 times — it’s hilarious!

In things I feel like sharing I’ve been brainstorming Halloween costumes,
we’re leaning towards Feng Shui.

In continuing to a- and be- muse myself news: I’m renaming my blog — Samantics — gear up for the next ANTtry.

I have rediscovered my love of dogs, developed an appreciation for police in Townsville, heard crickey in context, considered naming my never-will-be-born child Zazu, and flirted with basil as perfume. My next post will take me on a plane and bring us all to the Northern Territories where I’ll redefine fun.
See you soon,

    Elaborate on the kangaroo burger, please.

      Hmm. How to elaborate?
      It’s kangaroo meat and it’s yummy. Although apparently very easy to over cook. They also have kangaroo jerky. Want me to send you some??
