Mates. I’m not going to lie, today was no fun at all. Took my parents to the airport first thing in the morning and had to say bye to Mum and Dad with no plan whatsoever for when I’ll see them next; then I ran all over town running errands and having the same conversation over and over with everybody I saw about how I’m leaving for New York tomorrow and feeling quite sad about it.Click to Continue!

Back in 2004 when I was still a teenager, I walked into the Zambesi flagship on Vulcan Lane, climbed the stairs to the Men’s store, went over to the rack on the far wall, picked up a charcoal Nom*D short-sleeve hoodie emblazoned with the Bambi print (Bambi caught in a sniper rifle’s sights), took it to the counter and just about passed out as I handed over my eftpos card to drop $180 on a single item of clothing – the most I’d ever spent.
