black out betty

Ory-O's 24th was spent watching the made in Melbourne flick "The Loved Ones" at the Rooftop Cinema. It was a shocking movie (youtube the trailer, instant anxiety attack), and we were slightly over served (can you tell?).

We've unanimously decided that every city building should chuck a projection screen and some lawn chairs on the roof and call it a day.

aussie open

Hands down the most fun at a sporting event ever. Shattered we're going to be on a plane home for the finals!


shark bait

Well I have all my limbs and there was no visit to the decompression chamber- Not a bad way to spend a rainy wednesday if I do say so myself!

My dive buddy and I were the lucky first to jump into the 2.2 million liter shark tank just hours after the release of their new hammerheads. I can't even begin to explain what an amazing experience it was- giant sting rays (they love the feeling of bubbles so they float just above your head), tiger sharks, napping sea turtles, massive grey nurse sharks and of course the hammerheads.

I really have no idea why I haven't invested in an underwater camera yet (the above pictures were taken of me by a friend from outside the tank), but the videos linked below are from the same tank and give a much better idea of what it was like.




fancy footwork

The city-wide fireworks and 105 degree temps made our New Years Eve more like the 4th of July- and we weren't mad about it at all. The rest of the details will forever remain in the bottom of an empty bottle of Tanqueray, but I can assure you a good time was had by all. Ignoring the fact that our beautiful beach apartment had inexplicably turned into a frat house overnight, we had a quick egg sando and were out the door on our way to 'Summadayze'- the legendary aussie music festival. 12 hours of booze and beats- 2011 is going to be a good one!
