Trapeze at Twilight Flyers

Watching these videos from flying trapeze gives me butterflies and makes me happy. It's so much fun, I can't wait to go back!  We've been a couple of times now (in 2013 and Jan 2015) and a year between goes is way too far.

This year we went with Michael and Iva. Michael was a natural like Andrew, but unfortunately Iva wasn't too keen on the height and hand-soreness of it at all (sorry Iva!). We were in a big class of about 12, so we only got 4 swings each, and didn't get to try anything too new (I tried "hocks off" for the first time, but Andrew had done this one before).

Tammy's thinking of having the Flying High Aerial Arts xmas party there, fingers crossed we can get a booking.

Tame Impala and Freo Beer Fest

Tame Impala at Belvoir was incredible. I've seen them play quite a few times now, and they get better every time. They played a heap from Currents but also quite a few from Lonerism and Innerspeaker, and my favourite track of the night was the second encore (feels like we only go backwards).

I was hoping they'd play the phenomenal like a version cover they did on Friday of Kylie's confide in me, but no luck. Wow that was a good cover!

Belvoir is a really great venue, the sound is amazing, the seating is ideal, (and the security turns a blind eye to everyone choosing to enjoy a sneaky smoke), but my god getting out of there is a fucking nightmare. Luckily Andrew spotted that the second gate was open and we managed to get out of there in record time (still probably 20mins), because otherwise we would have been trying to get out for an hour! It really puts a damper on the night (literally, because it also started raining). We also had to fight the Neil Diamond traffic which was a huge liability, and reminded me of that South Park episode where all the seniors get out of the town meeting all at once.

The Fremantle BeerFest was so much fun as always. I love a good Freo festival, they really know how to put on a great day, especially compared to the Beaufort St festival which also ran this weekend but we avoided after trudging through the hoards of people last year.

Mane liquor / Custard & Co hop filtered cider was yum. My Feral paddle was Kelis (saison), Kilted Cowboy (burbon oaked scotch ale, won best amateur bear of the show), and Boris (Russian imperial stout). Andrew's was Funkin Phresh (fermented wild ale, sour), War Hog (American IPA), and Ashy Larry (oaked smoked porter). Everything we tried was really nice, and the only miss of the day was a god awful pomegranate cider that I have promptly forgotten the name of.

And a day in Freo is not complete without dinner at Maya, best Indian restaurant in Perth. Yum!

I'm So Professional

I haven't had a professional photo taken since I was in high school, and then all of a sudden I had two professional photo shoots in a row, after promptly forgetting how to smile.

Dave from Lazy Gecko Photography (also Karin's husband) put up with 6 annoying girls for 4 long hours to get these amazing shots. Unfortunately it's been about 6 months since any of us have seriously poled so we will definitely need to do another one once we're back in practice! Thanks Dave!

I jumped on a $25 Scoupon for Miller Photography which include a photoshoot and $400 towards prints or electronic packages because I thought it was time I get some professional photos for work (day job and fitness job). My thought process was OK $400, let's say ball park it's $100 a photo so that's 4 photos, 2 for each job, perfect! Turns out that prints are $200 each and electronic packages start at $800 for 6 photos... far out. I stuck with the two prints which came with two small "web" sized electronic copies of the photo, so still worked out, but I definitely misjudged the situation!

Miller's Studio was amazing though, and I think the target audience is more for families that want to get giant photos rather people wanting professional photos for LinkedIn.

So yeah I'm basically a supermodel.
