Echobelly - Insomniac

And for a Christmas present we would like...


...enough air miles to cover a return flight between London and Sydney (either way)...

...a course of anabolic steroids...

...a time machine to make time pass quicker.

Looks like someone got a little sunburnt

London Preppy said...

jb: Ha ha, yes staying out of the sun for 2 years before going to the beach will do that to you

J.B. said...

Nothing says welcome to Australia more than that! Hope it passes quickly.

Doug said...

Ouch.. looks like it hurts.

Hope you get everything you want and more for your Christmas.

Trybaby said...

How's it going? How long have you been there so far? Are you missing home yet? Met any new friends? Met any of your Australian readers? Your skin looks angry :D ehhehe

bregalad said...

Cool! I am glad you seem to be enjoying the spring/summer there. But why make time pass quicker? Just get Scott to join you there.

dickophile said...

you're.not.pale. i can handle no more lp. i can handle posts once in a blue moon. i can handle extremely erotic photos of you doing a handstand (erotic to me anyway). but after hundreds of posts have convinced me that pale is the way you go and....you go and....get a...one of those....you're all. there's melanin in your skin! how are you even alive!? isnt melanin like london preppy kryptonite?

London Preppy said...

doug: It certainly does :-(

And thank you

try: Some of the answers are "yes" some of the answers are "no"

dick: Yes, but LP is dead, right?

James said...

Don't let the Sydney boys scare you. See you at Mardi Gras.

Son said...

is that a new tat on your ext oblique or just a camera misfortune?

fran said...

omg what i would give for summer time!!! im getting sick of this dreadful winter time. enough of rain, snow, cold temperatures and being white!!!!

and plz buy a sunscreen. u're already red and its still the beginning of the warm temperature there!!

good luck!
fran

Alex said...

You are red like a lobster!

Woodsman said...

I spied you a few weeks back at FF on Oxford Street but unfortunately you were getting changed and i thought the only thing more lame than to say to a bloke in his jocks - "i love your blog" - was to wait outside said changeroom for you to come out and say the same thing. Im from Melbourne, so it is unlikely to happen again, unless you come down here for some culture - Melbourne is particulaly bleak and decidedly grey - i think you would like it.

London Preppy said...

james: They won't, I promise [insert smiley]

son: Misfortune I'd say

fran: But we do like the cold weather...

alex: I know...

woodsman: Next stop: Melbourne then

dickophile said...

yes. hes dead. and you killed him. with your tanning.

Timmy said...

I can do a round trip for you between London & Houston using miles and flying First Class.

I know it isn't Down Under but it is the best I can do.

Gabriel said...

i can't believe you've gotten sunburnt. omg, baby steps people. baby steps.....

george said...

you're not in sydney....that's a spray tan......george

London Preppy said...

timmy: Ah...so close but!

gabriel: But...but...everyone else was so tan. I had no time to spare

george: That might be true

Rommel said...

hoping to see surfing pics soon.

Oldyeller said...

Still a Greek god, even with the nasty sunburn. Shame on Matty (?) for not advising you properly on sunburn protection.

Jim said...

Well first the practical issue, to soothe that sunburn you can use aloe which is a very natural way to calm a burn. A little less natural, get a hold of someone who has testosterone gel and smooth it lightly over the burn. It will take the red (and sting) right out.

As for time passing quicker, stop it. Time passes too quickly as it is. All too soon you will be done "down under" and you'll be back in London wishing you had enjoyed Australia more.

London Preppy said...

rommel: I hope so too!

oldy: With Matty's skin tone, he couldn't advise anyone

jim: I'm overdosing on the aloe right now, cheers

Superchilled said...

welcome home
the weather is perfect right now
who needs to be anywhere else?
Ready to do some ocean swim races yet?
Oh and I hope you're keeping the aloe in the fridge.

Superdrewby said...

It's amazing how London looks just like Rushcutters Bay

AlwaysReadySF said...

It's a tragedy that LP is now just one of the many destroyed sun-burned bodies down under but then again, as you mentioned, LP is dead so ...why not?

Nice head-stand. Who knew you were so athletic ;-)

Graham said...

Excellent!

You look great doing the handstand. Sunburn looks hurty. If it's really sore use Preparation H, it works so much better than Aloe.

Hope you're having a depressingly good time.

Trybaby said...

I think everyone is starting to wonder. And everyone is thinking it and aren't willing to say it. But I have to ask! Inquiring minds want to know!

...How many marshmallows can you fit in your mouth at one time?

LC said...

I was hoping to spot you in Sydney last week. No such luck. Weather was fog/london/mist/rain. and when the sun finally took a peek yesterday. It was time to say go, and still no sighting of you. How appropriate. Hope the peeling is bearable.

Vegas Burning said...

Are you related to Frank, the sensitive straight cast member from MTV's The Gauntlet? Perhaps his hotter cousin?

Alfred said...

and are you interest any country?
I really interest London ;)
