This morning while I was roaming around flickr.com I noticed a few people have started putting an interesting spin on their photoblogging experience by starting a “photo a day” collection.
“Bonus,” I exclaim as a tiny speck of coffee hits my monitor. Don’t worry, it’s a work computer. “I’ve got a digital camera and two phones, all capable of taking photo thingymabobs, I’m gonna do that!”
So, as of today begins the photo-a-day experiment. 365 photos over 365 days, beginning today. The photo-a-day experiment will be a flickr.com photoset, a tumblr blog and a weekly digest posted to bananas on toast (to save clutter).
There will be photos of me, coffee cups, the occasional small person and some kielbasa sausage. There will be photos of people, places, somethings and nothings. So keep checkin’!
Legend Bar Lukes Copy, originally uploaded by Mitch Malone on flickr.com.
As a Going Away™ present, my good friend look made this painting for me, had it printed and framed. It’s a copy of the original Legends Bar painting, but I don’t know much about the origins of the original apart from the fact it’s pretty famous and I’ve seen it in a lot of Australian Pubs.
The painting Luke made is the most fantastic thing I think I have ever seen and it really got me rather emotional at my fairwell. Thanks a bunch Luke, this will always hang in my home!
So I went a bit nuts over at flickr earlier and uploaded a LOT of photos, including exclusive shots of the 7 six-packs my mother bought me, RAWK! Check them out, post some comments and most of all remember how much I love you all.

Wha’?, originally uploaded by bananasontoast on flickr.com.
I just loved this photo so much that I needed to put it on here. This is Mark, myself and Matt Q hanging out having a beer. These are two of the guys who are going to be sharing a house with me soon enough, so they are practically like brothers to me.
So I had the house to myself for just over a week and what better way to finish it off than with a house party? 2 kegs, about 20 people and 3 bottles of tequila proved more than enough to get everyone having a good time. My house ended up trashed, it took around 8 hours to clean and I had to mop the floors about 5 times. All in all it was a blast, but neither the cleaning or the hangovers were worth it.
For the complete flickr photo set, click here.
The top 5 highlights:
1. Rob and I drinking 3 quarters of a bottle of tequila in around 10 minutes
2. Me passing out as a consequence,
3. Beer bong anyone? I out-chugged the entire party, as per usual,
4. Loddy singing like Madonna with my mothers phone headset, and;
5. The boys not leaving my house for almost 48 hours in refusal to return a half-empty keg.

New Haircut, originally uploaded by bananasontoast on flickr.com.
I went to my hair dresser today and did the normal routine. We joked around for a while about how I am always making her open late because I work long hours, we joked about how I was finally sober when she was seeing me and I sat in the chair ready for my usual haircut.
Now, I normally say, “clippers up the side, a bit of length on the top, but not too much so I can spike it a little.”
Today I said, “okay Lisa, give me what you got! My hair is yours, do what you will!”
Now, the look in her eye should have told me to be careful. Or maybe it was the way she used the clippers and scissors. One way or anything, I ended up with possibly the worlds craziest haircut and I honestly love it! She zigged, she zagged and she carved out a masterpiece.
I’m a GQ playa!, originally uploaded by bananasontoast on flickr.com.
According to Melpo, I am a GQ playa. For those who are lame (like me) and have no idea what this means, check this shit out…
UrbanDictionary.com defins GQ as; “Used to describe a guy who is dressed nicely, very sleek, or very sexy to the ladies. The term comes form the men’s fashion magazine named GQ. Example: Damn nigga, you all GQued up 2nite, huh?”
…that’s right peoples, how fine am I?! TOO FINE! Hahahaha.
What’s in my bag?, originally uploaded by bananasontoast on flickr.com.

Hoi, man! HOI! HOOIII!!!, originally uploaded by bananasontoast on flickr.com.
Hahaha, Dessy must have joined the flickr team! My friend Dessy loves to say, “hoi”.
“Hoi man, wanna get some dinner?”
“Hoi Ryan, I’m sick of you asking me to burn Dave Chapelle for you!”
“Hoi fuck off, you’ve had yours!”
