- Another reason why I love Melbourne is because of all the hidden laneway treasures she has tucked away in her folds, waiting for you to discover them. Today we sought one of them out - Dognation. It's a tiny blink-and-you'll-miss-it store along The Causeway off Bourke St selling gourmet hotdogs with ingredients inspired by the tastes of different nations.
- I found out today that I look absolutely HIDEOUS as a blonde!
For Tram's Good vs Evil themed birthday party tonight, we had been toying with many costume ideas for weeks, ranging from yin and yang, naughty schoolteacher and jaded schoolboy, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, pedophile priest and sexy nun, child and pedophile priest, Jekyll and Hyde, angel and devil, wife and wifebeater, Kim Jong Il and err innocent citizen... at the final hour, we decided on going as Buffy the vampire slayer and a vampire. Now all we had to do was find a cape, a blonde wig and a stake!
Turns out blonde wigs with centre-parted straight hair weren't as easy to find as I thought (almost all wigs have fringes for some reason?!). After trawling through numerous costume and party shops, I finally found it! Upon putting it on and taking a look in the mirror, I burst into hysterics at my fugliness! Hello I'm a crossdresser who's not sure whether to be crazy Conan the Barbarian or a loony caveman!
There was the Tokyo Dog, which was a pork and beef sausage wrapped in seaweed, topped with miso-infused mushrooms, wasabi Japanese mayo, okonomiyaki sauce and seaweed flakes. Delish!
And there was the Melbourne Dog, comprised of an Aussie beef and tomato relish sausage with tomato sauce, mustard, onion, cheese and beetroot relish.
Other dogs available currently are the London 'Bangers & Mash' Dog, the Berlin Dog and the Mexico City Chilli Dog. There are talks of a Peking Dog in the works! Ps. Order the potato mash and gravy side OHMYGOD.
Then we stumbled across Chuckle Farm, which looks like this. What a magical little patch.
WOW blonde is definitely not my colour. So freakin' hilarious! How can a wig make me instantly look so unattractive and repulsive?!?!
My new blonde locks got the chop, and I emerged as Buffy the vampire slayer...
...and Brett turned into a vampire!
Sadly, no, blondes don't have more fun. However it's a lot of fun when everyone around you looks just as silly as you do!
