The first two shows of the tour are in the bag
And after eleventy-hundred naps….I’m back on deck
I flew from Chicago to Hong Kong
Hong Kong to Perth
Handed the kids to Mum & Dad
Then hopped on a flight to Sydney
Had GPS, iPhone maps meltdown
Took 50 minutes to find the hotel that was only 12 minutes from the airport
Spent $40 on an old fashioned map BOOK at a seven-eleven (who knew they even still made those things?)
Got to hotel, showered
Drove 90 minutes to a gig that was only 20 minutes from hotel (those old-fashioned map books don’t talk to you like a GPS while you’re driving. Refund)
Got to gig at 7:50pm, show started at 8pm
Said a quick G’day to the sound guy I was working with for the first time
Chucked my sparkly pants on
Tried to rig a piece of rope to be a guitar strap (left mine at hotel)
Called my muso mate Rose (who was coming to the show) to get her to bring me a guitar strap
thankyoubabyjesus! thank you Rose!
Walked on stage at 8:05pm completely dazed and confused
And proceeded to have one of the best shows ever
The St Mary’s crowd were exactly what I needed
And then again on Saturday night in Davistown (standing ovation…WHAT?)
I’m not sure when I’ll be back in NSW again
But if they keep treating me like that
It’s going to be hard to keep me away
Thank you doesn’t even begin to cover it
Long time no nuttin’!!
Thought I’d better check in and see if you’re still here
I know those of you that read this website have been wondering where I am
I’ve been TWEETING and INSTAGRAMMING and I’m always FACEBOOKING
I’ve made a bit of a dent in the writing of my new Christmas Album. (will share some of that with you guys soon)
There’s also the weekly column in my local paper that I’ve been writing. You may not recognise me though….I’m not allowed to swear.
thank fuck I can here You can check that out HERE…I hope…or maybe you have to sign up to read it? It’s confusing to me because, technology.
I have obviously been a little MIA and not paying attention, because I could have SWORN my Facebook page had around 14,000 ‘likes’ last time I looked
And I look today and there’s over 20,000!
What the what?
That’s kind of a big deal
And I think it’s high time we came up with a name for all the fabbo peeps that LIKE my Facebook page
You know, ’cause like Justin Bieber has BELIEBERS
Katie Perry has her KITTYKATS
Barry Manilow has FANILOWS (don’t ask me how I know that)
New Kids On The Block has BLOCKHEADS
Jimmy Buffet has PARROTHEADS
You get the idea…
By the powers
not vested in me, I hereby officially announce that all ‘likers’ of the JENNY TALIA from AUSTRALIA page on Facebook shall from this day on, be referred to as JENNITALS.
I don’t know about you guys, but that makes me happy!
What an awesome name. JENNI-TALS.
It just rolls of the tongue doesn’t it? 😉
I feel like it’s a club. A cool club.
Full of fellow fruit loops that love a good time and fart jokes.
Where political correctness can go fuck itself…and while we never intend to be offensive….if we occasionally do offend….BONUS!
Life’s short, there’s enough serious stuff out there to give even the happiest chap reason to wanna fall asleep with his head in the oven.
Let’s make each other laugh JENNITALS!!
Are you a JENNITAL?
What are you waiting for??
