    Hey Appolyon, I hope you weren't down at OccupyMelbourne this night. I heard the police got very nasty with the protesters. Can't have the proles out showing their unhappiness with Liz in the country I guess...

    Good little video from the Herald; http://video.heraldsun.com.au/2157468584/Occupy-Melbourne-protest-chaos#.TqEqaUBNcrU

    Appropriate force being used. LOL at the red headed women in the beginning.

    Did I see a Sydney SF member in the Wynyard tunnel (near the entrance at Kent Street - walking toward the station).

    Asian guy, brown suede loafers/mocs, sockless with double cuffed jeans, potentially white shirt and mid grey sweater?

    I've seen the same guy before wearing a grey suit, tie with tie clip and pocket square. Always looking sharp - could be a SFer...

    Any size 28s in Melbourne? Saw a NWT pair of PRL Andrew chinos at an op shop today for $8.

    These miscreants disrupted the attempts of me and my fellow bankers to commute from Docklands to the Paris End for our four-hour lunch. How dare they!

    HAHAHAHA. This is literally hilarious. Love seeing those backward self-entitled hippie bludgers get a bit of roughing up.

    May they go and find a real life and hopefully some substantial work to keep them better occupied... But alas I am being too optimistic.

    Where is the love, maaaaaan?



    Anyway, went down to DJs to try out a few fragrances: Terre d'Hermes, Ferragamo Free Time. Acqua Di Parma Colonia Essenza and some Gucci one that the saleslady got me to try which have no interest in.

    None of them really made me go wow. The Acqua di Parma one is interesting though in the sense that I find it a very very familiar smell. I think it may be the smell of soap or scented greeting cards.

    Need suggestions of a rich, warm scent for evening wearing, that is distinctive enough but doesn't a sort of sharp bite to it as to not offend anyone's noses. Been looking for Ferragamo F Black, can't seem to find it. I guess I have to turn up to the Ferragamo store then.

    Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza is my most recent fragrance purchase. really loving it so far. you're right, it did also remind of the smell of soap the first time i tried it! Definitely a day time fragrance me thinks

    If you are willing to pay a bit more, take a closer look at Amouage, e.g. Jubilation XXV. Great scent. You could also try Puredistance M.

    Think I'll be the guinea pig and go buy a pair of Bartalesi shoes. Really loving the colour of the brown leather with the natural inconsistencies and how they are just so buttery soft. Hope they don't fall apart.

    Ended up successfully occupying a number of bars till the wee hours that night.


    Nope. By the time I made it as far as Swanston St every one had gone home.
