FOTS 33 @FrogAvalanche the absentminded rascal

Friends of the Show Episode 33 with Hoppers @FrogAvalanche

“—Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
Yours arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
Looking into the heart of light, the silence.”
– T. S. Eliot, The Waste Land

This week’s friend is a delightful Aussie from the land down under I’m talking of course about Hoppers @FrogAvalanche. IF you don’t know he is one of the super OG original nice twitter accounts, where he ran a long running ‘Twitter feature’ series, promoting all kinds of great accounts, once a week, for so so long!

Australia Chat

Hoppers Stories:
-Walked home from work (I live close 3km away) and saw my car wasn’t in my drive-way. Thought it had been stolen. Goes to call police. Remembered I’d driven to work that morning.
-Turned up to work in two different shoes. Two different colours, brown and black.
-Called in sick on a day I was not scheduled to work.
-Ive gone to the wrong cinema on the wrong day to see the wrong film.
-The first person I followed on Twitter, followed me back after six months. Then deactivated forever two weeks later.
-Was challenged to become a vegetarian for a month. Chipped a tooth on my first meal (some nuts). Quit it immediately.
-Drove all the way across Australia, only to realise when I was setting to return back a week later that I didn’t have enough money to do so.
-Went to Green Bay to see the Packers. On a week they were in Buffalo.
-While in Milwaukee being sad about not seeing the Packers, I did laundry at a laundrette. And forgot to check pockets or the whereabouts of my passport. Washed my passport. Had to cancel all my holiday to get to LA for the Australian Embassy.
-Took five days to replace the passport because I had to get my ID flown over. Moped in LA drinking beer and writing mopey postcards.
-The plane flying me home, finally, got damaged docking – another three day delay.
-Hired a car in Arizona, and promised myself to drive well on the 600 mile journey. Got pulled over by a cop in 2 miles for an illegal u-turn. Got so stressed after that, I got lock-jaw after 100 miles because clenching teeth. Teeth!
