Hey there Posse! Well, you made it through the silly season and now we have the end of another year. NYE 2023 is upon us. It’s been a lovely year for me. Finally back working and travelling. Still enjoying life with Jin, celebrated 11 years of happy entanglement. Managed to see some family and loads of our friends. Bought a new investment apartment and a small block of vacant rural land.
Sure, there were some awful moments too. Putting down our beautiful Jinx because of cancer. Splitting a tooth down the middle on a small piece of bone in some salami. Jin had a terrifying health scare, fortunately all came out OK. I’m sure there are more that I’ve forgotten.
As always I’m super grateful for our apartment, friends and loved ones, both of us working jobs we love and earning enough to pay all the bills and have comfortable lives.
I’m working this year. Two NYE 2023 gigs.
Firstly an early Trivia at Club Parramatta. 6-8.30pm. It will be quiet, calm and hopefully quite a few of the regulars will come be a part of the fun.
Then I’ll jump in the car and head to town. From 10pm-1am I’ll be hostessing a rooftop party for a group of about 50 A List LGBTQI and allies. A couple of numbers, some hostessing and mingling. The apartment is a 3 story penthouse with 360 degree views of the Harbour and city. We will be right in the middle of the fireworks at midnight. It might be the best job in Sydney for NYE 2023 and I’m really grateful to be their chosen host when they could literally afford anyone from the entertainment industry.
