    Propversary!

    PROPVERSARY BABY, hell yeah! What is propversary you ask? It’s a term I coined myself and basically means the anniversary of a property, or a property anniversary or when propane becomes your adversary. For this post, I will take the definition that it means a property anniversary and that’s what today is! One of my babies has a birthday today.  Not like how it became a cute hatchling turned baby chick turned mother hen mind you, but from when I legally took title like a sicko property slave trafficker and couldn’t wait to have my way with it (a renovation). Mind you, I wasn’t counting down to this date, it…

    “$1.2 million in the bank”

    “$1.2 million” “Say what?” “I made $1.2 million” So went partially the conversation with my colleague at work today – a big hulking Eastern European straight out of the KGB Academy for big hulking Eastern Europeans. Of course, anyone who tells you they made $1.2 million deserves some attention, in fact I would have paid attention to whatever he was saying. 4 years ago he tells me, he purchased a property to live in with his newly married wife. At the start of the Sydney boom, he decided to knock down the run down dwelling and develop a 5 bedroom mansion on the same block.  The sale went through last…

    $100 million? Yes please!

    Earlier yesterday was the much anticipated boxing bout between Conor “The Notorious” McGregor and “Pretty Boy” Floyd “Money” Mayweather. The fight lived up to expectations and the favourite Mayweather triumphed via TKO in the 10th. And I couldn’t care less. Don’t get me wrong, I can understand the hype and hysteria this fight had – two flamboyant champions, both masters at selling themselves to the baying public with social media in overdrive at the mere thought of these two touching gloves (think Frodo and the ring against the fires of Mount Doom – except Frodo was an Irish brawler who requires English subtitles and Mount Doom was a big black…

    Cmon Man, Focus!

    It’s me again! You know I was only supposed to be editing and trying to make the website look better for you guys tonight but I kept on being distracted, chiefly because I really want to re-watch The Good, the Bad and the Ugly later and couldn’t concentrate properly on actually editing and making the website look better for you guys. Just the thought of spending 177 delicious minutes with Eastwood, Van Cleef and the Latino Santa Claus Eli Wallach got me all hot and bothered inside (I turned the heater down and felt better). This lack of focus meant that I kept on procrastinating and watching random videos of…

    Oh Ba Dear

    Oh Ba Dear as my friend Mycall would say, not at all how I planned this would go, no not at all. Why do I say that? Well this blog was supposed to be anonymous and a means for me to reach out to the world in the comfort of my own personal space, hiding behind the veil of anonymity of the interwebs and laughing out loud at the folly of humankind (you mean you play Pokemon Go because it makes you move your legs? Sheeet, I thought walking does that too). This lasted a whole 2 days before I was found out like a leper and had my identity…

    Let’s Do It!

    Do what you ask? Doing you! What do you mean doing you? Here, let me explain. Growing up we all had the belief (well I did anyway) that if you go to a good school, get good grades, get into a good uni, get a good job, you get a good career, find a good wo/man, get a good marriage…you get the point. In my mid-20s I realized this was a fallacy.  My friends were mostly in very high paying jobs and in very high status vocations yet I look at them and all I see are sheep. Not because they are warm and fuzzy and need a good shave…

    Finally…

    Hello everyone – I welcome you! This is my first of (hopefully) many posts, and I am EXCITED. Made a commitment to myself to start up a business or get married this year. Well one out of two ain’t bad. Not to say that this is a business by any stretch of the imagination (contact me to learn how to make $1m in 3minutes for $9.99, no seriously), I just like to write and if it brings you some laughs and merriment in your internet travels, then job well done me hearties. Hopefully I got my act together by now on thefrugalsamurai.com and have included a blurb as to who…
