RJ Anderson: I Am Your Relative

Yes, new userpic, taken sometime in January. The lighting made me look dark, but in reality I look like a pasty-white English backpacker. And yes, my head usually ends up on a tilt in photos. I’m unsteady 😉 And I’m convinced that RJ Anderson and I are related somehow.

So I’ve got myself a Flickr, but am having trouble finding people. Please let me know how I can find you there. Ta.

Uploaded are photos I took this afternoon (okay, Friday afternoon; it’s Saturday now) of my cat Manny with various books (by Kristopher Reisz, Jeri Smith-Ready, Anton Strout, Marta Acosta, Kat Richardson, Jeanne C Stein, Mark Del Franco, Megan Hart, Jennifer Rardin, Jackie Kessler and Jenna Black). This was circa afternoon nap time, so he looks drugged. Note: the weather was warm (27C), so he stretched out. When it’s cooler, he does the foetal position thing.

Way past my bedtime now.

Arctic Comedy

Have photographed Manny with various books I own. Hope to transfer them to the PC tonight. I still won’t be able to alter the images, though.

I share my birthday with Terri Clark – mark July 14 on your calendars 🙂

Melbourne International Comedy Festival guide is out. There’s even a comedian from Finland! Antti HakalaArctic Comedy. I’m not sure what arctic comedy is, but woohoo! He observes the modern world from an original, realistic and honest perspective – an Arctic perspective – that is seldom seen at the Comedy Festival. And he is not against everything! Shows are English, though, which is admirable – being funny in your first language is difficult. Being funny is another language is even more difficult. Respect to you, Antti. In his show Antti talks about his tough childhood in the Arctic conditions, as well as his later struggles with the Australian culture, and reveals how it feels to be a foreigner with natural blond hair and soft skin.

Wait, what are those animals on his website? Elk? Reindeer? Moosies?
