Thursday: aptmnt store launch

the launch of trent’s new store Aptmnt at Alhambra lounge. Returning to Brisbane as guest dj for the night was old roommate Steve Lind.

the cops made an apperance again. they walked through the bar from back door to the front door. nothing crazy happened. but i couldn't believe how much police presence there is in the valley at the moment.

It was a great night for all and the first time in ages that I’ve been out to somewhere other than a bar. I bumped into an old acquaintance, Peter, who runs the Sunbar who I hadn’t seen for well over a year. He was with some barmaids from the bar and I couldn’t work out why they were giving me a funny look. I put it down to my ridiculous good looks.

Peter was excited to see me and kept quizzing me about where I’d been as I used to be somewhat of a local. I explained that the lifestyle change I’d gone through so I could study meant I was no longer the barfly I once was.

“We all thought you were dead!” he shouted into my ear over the thumping music

“Yeah, I’m living the quiet life now mate” I laughed

“No! We really thought you died. There’s a rumour doing the rounds that you died in a house fire six months ago” he said as he gripped my shoulder as if to check that I was really there.

Turns out I was wrong about the ridiculous good looks. They were looking at me like I was a ghost.

On the upside, I now have my own urban legend.
